Sooty the superstud guinea pig has been given his own Web page to keep up with public interest. You may not know what the hell we're talking about, so read on.

It was a cracker tabloid story - Welsh guinea pig Sooty managed to squeeze out of his cage and make it into the female area. Then, in one night, he managed to get his way around all 24 females in the pen and made every one pregnant. He was found fast asleep in the corner the next morning and continued to sleep for two days straight. Ten weeks later, there were another 43 Sooties. Now that's class.

Of course, it's all got a bit publicity stupid since then and Peter Stringfellow got Sooty down to his club to promote some strippers, amongst other daft events.

And now the Web site, which, unfortunately, is rubbish. A few pics of Sooty, some terrible copy with loads of exclamation marks and that's it. But then it is the small site of a little farm in Wales, so we won't be too nasty. If you still want to have a look though, go here.
