Guinea Pig Excited for Apple Watch
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
Apple’s live keynote event was last week, and among those watching with eager anticipation was Maisy the guinea pig.
"She’s been a fan of Apple since the first iPod," says Craig Sickler, a friend. "She’ll pretty much plan her day around a live event."
When the hotly rumored Apple Watch was finally unveiled, Maisy could hardly contain her excitement.
"She knew it was coming - and when Tim Cook said ‘just one more thing,’ she almost dropped her MacBook," says Sickler. "She’ll get it the day it comes out. Does she need one? Probably not. I mean, she’s a guinea pig. That’s never stopped her before, though."

Chinchilla Victimized by iCloud Hack
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
According to reports, a compromising picture of Mabel the chinchilla was recently leaked to the web. The actress and singer is the latest celebrity to be impacted by malicious hackers taking advantage of security flaws in Apple’s iCloud service. 
"She’s usually very discreet about the pictures she puts in the cloud," says friend Heather Warner. "Like anyone, she understands the inherent risks of outsourcing data storage."
While Mabel has not commented publicly on the matter, she has released a series of tweets slyly alluding to the leak. 
"It was such a blatant invasion of privacy," says Warner. "No one needs to know what color her bathroom tiles are."

Hamster Model Master “Blue Steel”
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
According to his manager, Christian the hamster has finally gotten down the most fabled look in modeling.
"He did ‘Blue Steel,’" says Len Perlstein. "We were shooting for the Sears fall catalog, and all of a sudden he just does it. It was like someone sucked the air out of the room. Time stood still. It was glorious."
Long considered the most challenging look a model can master, “Blue Steel” has evaded some of the most famous names in runway fashion.
"No one’s done it correctly since ‘86," says Perlstein. "Christian’s just a special hamster. Now, if I could get him to lay off the pellets, that would be amazing."

Chinchilla Thrilled With Bathroom Remodel
Mr. Bagel the chinchilla is reportedly extremely happy with his recent bathroom remodel.
Friends tell The Fluffington Post that the chinchilla became pretty stressed out about money after it was discovered that he had to replace some of the iron pipes in his basement with newer PVC piping. But now that the bathroom is done, he’s pleased, even though he totally blew through his budget.
"It wouldn’t have been so bad, but he was already pretty maxed out," said longtime friend June Atwood. 
According to Atwood, Mr. Bagel had already purchased costly high end finishes for the space: gold fixtures, a large claw foot, porcelain tub, marble vanity, heated flooring. So there was very little wiggle room for unexpected costs during the renovation. 
"He got really worried when he heard about the plumbing issues," she said. "But in the end, the space is his sanctuary. So he eats off brand food pellets for a couple of years to make up the difference. He’s fine with that."

Guinea Pig Discovers “PiggyCam”
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
It was only a matter of time.
According to reports, Dexter the guinea pig has finally found the high-tech camera system installed in his cage. Sold commercially as PiggyCam, the setup allows owners and Internet users alike a rare glimpse into the piggy world.
"Yeah, that’s what the box says," said friend Jeff Cooper. "Truth is, it’s surveillance. Guinea pigs enjoy the same fourth amendment rights that we do. The ACLU would have a field day with this one. "
Others are less skeptical.
"I don’t see what the problem is, honestly" said Lauren Crump, Dexter’s owner. "I deserve to see all the cute and potentially incriminating things that piggy does when I’m not around - I wonder what he’s up to now."
Crump was forced to cut our interview short when her PiggyCam Android app began to show nothing but static.
