Milo the guinea pig is a Glaswegian. In January 2010 a much loved member and supporter of Mossburn died and Milo’s carer along with Mossburn’s manager were both at Catriona’s funeral and got talking.
Francis, the carer who devotes her life to rescuing dogs, was telling Juanita the manager what a sad life it was for a piggy to live in a flat on a main road and only get to come out of his cage at night to run about the flat, watch television and have a cuddle.
They both decided then and there that he would be far better off in the country among the company of other piggies so Juanita brought him back home with her to Mossburn and all of us who knew Catriona agreed that she would have considered that outcome the highlight of her funeral! Milo lives with rabbits Donald and Daisy and 3 other male guinea pigs, he is very friendly and still loves cuddles and has reconciled himself to not watching telly anymore.
His favourite thing in life is food and he could be considered to be quite a portly, but very handsome, gentleman!
