The Coolest Guinea Pig on the Web.
Sassy Sessions: Fuzzberta
Mama Sassafrass (known to the world as Cathleen Smith) found the coolest thing the other day- and all of us in the Habersham Forest are obsessed. As I am writing this out, I can’t keep a smile off my face or stop my tail from wagging. It is a real-live guinea pig who dresses up and role plays and uses props. At just two years old Fuzzberta is already an online star thanks to her creative and talented human Monica Wu who makes all the décor and outfits by hand. Let me just say, whether or not you like these little critters, there is no way not to become entertained by this special one.
Monica Wu, the human, chronicles the outfits and setups in photographs across various social media outlets. And people are just eating them up. Including myself and all my Steiff buddies in that I hang with in the forest. And believe me, we are no strangers to the dress up game. In fact, most of live for the next hand-sewn outfit, or the custom tiara’s that fit just right…oh and when we get our chance to pose in one of the Habersham Forest sets, we could not be happier. But to see a real live guinea pig dressing up in the tiny custom creations is just too cool! Check out her Instagram https://www.instagram.com/fuzzberta/ . This furry cutie pie has over 66k followers. Wow!
Here are a few of our favorite photos of Fuzzberta. Does anyone else feel a little “Vogue” coming on?
Another cool thing about Fuzzberta’s outfits is that they are all hand made by her human. Even the tiny little hats and the tiny little Mac computers. Reminds me of mama Sass and the workers in the style studio at Habersham who can make just about anything, well, bite-sized for us little rascals. So, we can totally relate to Fuzzberta and her human. Yes, I know, I know, we are merely stuffed animals (who happen to be made by hand using the finest mohair) but who cares..we dress up all the same. And most importantly, we all know how to STRIKE A POSE.
If Fuzzberta’s human Monica Wu happens to see this post, we think that Fuzzberta may be in need of some Sassafrass Jones couture. We would love to make a custom outfit for her…and trust me, once she puts on one of our special tiara’s, she won’t want to take it off.
