Oh Mum, be careful there!
I can already see Polly poking her head out of her cage and screaming "who you calling a pain in the butt?" at you already...

Too right. And at 3am right after she's woken up LAwomans with her chirping.

Isaac will be hiding in his own pigloo with his paws over his ears :-p

I think Eloise wants to know who's having fun in the downstairs cage!

I should go make a note in my journal that LAwomans would like some ear-plugs for Christmas!

I hope they come in piggy size too, so I can also grab some for Isaac and Eloise. : )

You guys are too funny! Piggy ear plugs! The girls and Isaac are asking Momo for their Christmas present early!

I think Polly will always be small, but she is a very cute pain in the butt (literally for Isaac).

When I first saw her I thought she was a bit plain looking but as Mum says, it's a good thing she has so much personality, because she looks a lot like a rat!

I think she is related to Yoda with those ears. They stick straight out from her head.

No chirping this morning so everyone got enough sleep. My boss wonders why I keep coming in to work so sleep deprived....If she only knew! She likes animals but thinks of my rabbits as part of the "cycle of life", and therefore they are part of the food chain. She is very good about giving me time off when I call in about my animal emergencies, however. Everyone I work with have children emergencie; I have animal ones.:)

This chirping is really odd. Polly will just suddenly burst into "chirp", for no apparent reason. She sort of starts by winding up with another noise almost like teeth chattering, then starts chirping like a bird. I think she is actually entertaining herself as well as calling the "Mother Ship". :) Gee, now I have Barbara Streisand in my bedroom...next thing you know, Muffin will want a piano so she can be her own Stevie Wonder. She already asked Mum for sunglasses like his and has been practicing with a piece of oat hay as a white cane. These guys will work it anyway they can!

Pollyanna Princess isn't a bit homely, she's rather sleek. I think she may be Italian.

She loves seranading her Isaac. It helps him fall asleep.

Sparkles N Daisy, you are so intuitive! Gee, I think you are right..Polly is very sleek, like a model or a Ferrari...

I always thought she was a Russian mail order bride that got stuck with this grumpy old man, but I can see that was just a disguise to get into the country. She is really an Italian diva under that monochromatic body. Polly will thank you for seeing her true self.

Serenading Isaac, now that's a possibility, she IS very melodic. Of course, he still wants the ear plugs for those days he needs an extra nap or two....Sometimes he hides in the pigaloo with his paws over his ears because he doesn't want to hurt her feelings.

"Russian mail order bride"... haha, LAWomans, I just love the way you write!

Looking forward to the next installment, and of course, MORE PICTURES!

Thanks Momo! I wish I could get a recording and video of Polly chirping. It goes on for several minutes. Of course if I look at her, she stops.

I will definitely get more pictures. Your pictures and stories are so wonderful! Since Polly is so busy re-arranging everything, she talks really fast, sort of like a Valley girl, so it's hard to understand exactly what she is saying. Muffin and Eloise think she is from a foreign country....like I said...Russian mail order bride...but she is really just a Valley girl on speed (too many veggies)!

Oh Momo,

That is the cutest idea for ear plugs! Eloise and Muffin are stoked! Muffin wants pink ones! Isaac says he needs bigger ones, since he is a MAN! Well, sort of a man, since he is neutered......mmmmm.

I just read your thread about your chirper...we could start a whole new craze...Guinea Pig American Idol! There could be talent contests for piggies that can chirp the longest, the loudest, etc. Polly is in the right place...Hollywood is just a few miles away! Meimi can come to visit anytime and we will show her around the town. Who knows, she may be "discovered".

Meimi sounds more melodic than Polly, probably because she has a Russian accent. She starts out making a sort of nails on a black board noise, then works up to the chirping. She doesn't move around like Meimi, just stares into space.

My husband says my pigs look like they are from the Island of Dr. Moreau and are an experiment gone wrong; either that or they are from outer space. I prefer the outer space theory and she is calling the Mother ship. I'll let you know when it arrives!

I'm a little camera impaired since I don't have a good, digital camera, but I am working on getting some more pictures. Polly keeps posing, so she is ready for her big break! Isaac sleeps a lot because he is kept awake all night.

By the way, why do pigs decide to do all of the nefarious deeds after the lights go out, but as soon as you turn them on, they just look at you and say "What"??

I totally go with the American Piggy Idol thingy LAWomans, I have even drawn up a sign-up sheet for all GL piggies who wishes to participate.

McMac and Mojo totally feel for Isaac, a man, yet not quite a man. *sigh*

Momo,

This is so cute!!!! You are so talented! Now, our only challenge is to get the chirpers to do it when we have the auditions...any suggestions? Then we need to get some judges who are NOT like the ones on American Idol... There is way to much drama with those people!

Isaac isn't sure if he shoud go shopping with Polly or hang out watching pig wrestling and drinking beer. However, his femine side has been coming out and he has been helping Polly re-decorate their cage. It's a confusing life as an almost man....:)
