About me (and my owner)

My name is Mieps, I am five years old and I live in the Netherlands. My owner (see photo) is 24 years old and she loves taking photographs of me! She has her own website

I am a very silent piggy, I hardly make any sound. My favourite snacks are: chicory, cucumber, watermelon and carrots. I am an indoor piggy, which means that my cage is always indoors. In the living room to be exact! There are lots of cats in our neighbourhood, so my owner doesn't want me to live outside. In the Summer, Spring and Autumn when it's warm enough I get to play outside under supervision of my owner. 

We started our Instagram adventure on the 21st of January 2015. 

On the 31th of October (2016) we adopted an adorable male piggy from a shelter nearby. His name is Archie and he's about 1 year old! We named him after my dad's first guinea pig. Sadly Archie passed away on the 23rd of May (2017). 


Pien and Wies became a part of the family on the 9th of June 2017, so that Mieps would not be alone.

If you have any questions about me or my owner, please ask me by sending me an email (info@miepstheguineapig.com), a message through the contact form or through one of my social media accounts. 

This is one of Archie's first photoshoots. He's such a natural piggy model!
