Misty is so cute but I love Tiggy. She's a pistol : ) Guess she just doesn't want to miss anything!

Tiggy looks like her usual self again!

Misty is very pretty. I love her little eye stripe, and Miss Tiggy's M. :)

Tigs can have the clementines, I get the After Eights! I love the picture of Misty with her eyes closed. Bless.

Momo, Tiggy has that just for you. ;o)

A bit late in updating but not only did I get flu after New Year, got back to work and caught all the germs going round there too. A virus of the airways that takes 4-6 weeks to go and nothing you can take for the coughs! Argh! More hassle too with the car insurance company so more sleepless nights and double Argh!

As for the piggies, Misty is settling in well. It's either all go with lots of zoomies or just chilling out under the favourite fleece. Didn't take her long to get the hang of it from the other bump - a true Master in the art of chillin' (so that's what the M is for!)

More later... :o)

Cutie bum!
Hey! I think I have that virus, too! Actually, almost everyone at our school has it. So many of us, kids and teachers alike, have this upper respiratory tickly cough. It's not usually productive, just annoying.

I hear you on being sick, momo pretty much curled up in the fetal position and stayed in bed the entire week...

Yup, I think she got the art of chilling and saxxy butting down!

This is seriously needing updating and lacking in pictures. Feeling much better and hopefully everyone else is too, so I should get back to being a better pig slave. ;o)

It's not that there's nothing happening either though I am feeling guilty that I haven't been spending nearly enough time with my newbie Misty though she's been here a whole 10 weeks now. She is coming along nicely and not quite as shy as she was and still gets on great with Tiggy. She is certainly not shy when it comes to using her voice - Misty is one vocal piggy. :o)

She did seem to be losing a lot of hair for a while and great drifts of it were leaving trails where she'd been but that has now cleared and I think it was just a reaction to her change of surroundings. She has gone though some hormonal phases too and poor Tiggy has been really tolerant of getting her head humped on a couple of occasions! Much verbal protesting but nothing else - not even moving out of the way.

It took me a while to understand why Misty always ran away when I appeared (maybe a bit more lippy might help...) but soon discovered it's because I am upright! If I sit on the flloor she's much calmer and comes forward though doesn't quite take a treat from my fingers unless in the cage. I think it's because she's spent a while at Thistle where all the cages are generally waist high and above so she's not used to being towered over. :o) Tiggy on the other hand is so unfazed she runs up to you all the time. I'm sure some of it will rub off on Misty sooner or later.

Tiggy has had a health hiccup or two with a small fungal patch on her back now cleared, then she got a bout of cystitis, both of which I think were just a reaction to everything that had been going on over the last few months. I think with her immune system and health settling down and now that she has a healthy pal to run around with, she can only go from strength to strength. I'm not worried about her kidney function any more as the sticks seem to show all's working as it should be. Perhaps an occasional prevention treatment and additional cranberry juice will keep things at bay.

I also got one of those piggy activity/boredom games from Pet Planet which I thought may end up a waste of money but so far Tiggy has sussed out Level 1 pretty quickly so I must get some pics of that too. I knew she was a clever and very special piggy. ;o)

Yay for feeling better!

Webs, I've noticed stress-shedding too. My Sakura will shed like crazy every time she goes to the vet. It lasts for a few days, then completely stops.

How's Tiggy doing with the game? Has she moved up to level 2. Hope she continues to be doing well healthwise.

I'm all behind and need to upload more stuff and even get the links to Tiggy Takes Over the Teach n' Treat game added here too. :·)

The piggies are doing well, Misty is still a little shy and still dives for cover under her fleece but I think it's more of a habit now. If the fleece has ended up in a bundle on the floor due to Tiggy rolling herself up in it, Misty starts pop corning all over it and nosing through it, certainly not fearfully trying to hide! She also gives Tiggy some competition in the loudness stakes at mealtimes - what a squeaker!

One reason for the delay in pics is that I have a new toy! Birthday and Christmas money went together (with a little extra input from me) and I got a new digital SLR camera. :·) Still refreshing my memory after years of film SLRs and being lazy over my smaller digital compacts but hoping to get some reasonable pics up soon.

The pigs are currently unimpressed by the bigger, noisier, brighter beast being pointed in their general direction... maybe that's why Misty is more inclined to hide after all. ;o)

good to hear the girls are fine. Can't wait to see the pics from your new camera. Did you get a Cannon or something else. I'm no camera buff but have friends who are.

Happy Belated Birthday. I just caught up from Christmas. Congrats on your new addition. Rosie came to live me about the same time. Misty is so cute, but I can totally relate to Mrs. Tiggy. There is just too much outside the cage to inspect. She just doesn't have time to sit still for the flashy thing. I can't wait to see more pictures of the new bffs.
