A woman has quit her £20,000 job after realising she's making more money by filming her guinea pigs!

Laura Mellors, 29, has had a whopping 10 million YouTube hits and earns £2,000 a month - just by posting videos of the cuties. How impressive is that?!

And she's now left her job as an account manager at E.ON to focus on filming her furry friends.

The lass from Nottingham started uploading the flicks in 2010 when she decided to film the guinea pigs' reaction to getting a new cage.

She was quoted in the Daily Mirror, explaining: "I uploaded the video to YouTube and within a few days I was getting positive feedback and request for more vidoes.

"Someone asked me to make a video showing them how to construct the cage, so I did and it just snowballed."

Laura now has over 100 videos on her Piggiepigpigs channel and has even started selling products.

They've been so successful, her seven cuties – Billy, Bobby, Fozzie Bear, Brian, Bo, Alfie and Gizmo – receive fan mail from around the world and Laura was even recognised in Florida while on honeymoon with husband James, 30.

Laura said: "People seem to love the videos. It's a joy to do something for a living which is also a passion."
