And Ouiser has distributed eagles to most of the houses on the forum, so you can never be too careful! My abby is really mad at her for the ones she sent over here.

Oh, well thank you Ouiser. I now have a piggy that trembles during floor time unless he has something COMPLETELY covering his head! Even if his nose is sticking out, its not good enough.

Stupid eagles.

Mouse is such a beautiful little guy!

We have eagles over here in the UK too, just ask my Arnold! He's almost 6 and has been hiding from them all of his life. I've yet to see one, they must appear as soon as I leave the room.

Do piggys really realize *that* magically fast where the veggies come from?! I got home late tonight/this morning (oooops, sorry mouse!) and when straight to get his bedtime veggies, I heard a sound I haven't heard in a very long time.

Me: *opens veggie drawer*
Mouse: *high, ear piercing* WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!!!!
Me: *Shuts drawer* "What's wrong with you, bud?"
Mouse:*nothing*
Me: *tearing up lettuce leaves, slicing off tomato chunk*
Mouse Wheeeeek Wheeek!! *grabs lettuce and runs*

Do they really figure it out *that* magically fast? He didn't do that AT ALL till tonight! My other two used to be really noisy, but Mouse has been relatively quiet since he's been alone. Is he just getting that smart?! :)

When it comes to veggies guineas are definitely clever little things.

Now you've got these deafening screams of starvation to look forward to every day!

Yup, its official - he *knows*. Again this morning, opening of the fridge was greeted with chatter and wheeks, and looks of disgust when I wasn't moving fast enough for him. Oh goody :)

It's like someone flipped a switch in his brain yesterday that said fridge=veggies!

Oh as long as the veggies were coming on a regular basis, things were fine. BUT since you were late ONCE, Mouse expressed displeasure, and *poof*, the veggies appeared. Now the best thing to do is remind you of your parental duties ahead of time so the veggies *poof* again!

Well, fans - today was an exciting day! First of all, Happy Valentines day!

My new bed came in the mail from Windespirit!

I love it so much, I decided to claim it as my own. I figured my beans would do just that!

*sigh* So proud. :)

Urgh. Boar troubles haha. I picked up Mouse tonight for a little cuddle time before he went to bed, and he had an aspen shaving *up* his man, uhm, part? a little ways. I sloooooowly pulled it out and it came out fine with no squeaking or squirming, so I assume it didn't bother him. It wasn't *too* big, or very stuck - kind of seemed like a *perfect* (bad word for it, i know) fit.

Could this cause a problem later on? It wasn't there at floor time tonight, I'm almost positive. No redness, no pain so it seems.

Anything I should watch for?

Watch for redness and sensititvity, but he should be just fine.

Such a handsome piggie you are, Mouse!

I agree with Bytxlaura. Unless you notice redness and sensitivity it should be fine. Back, 4 years ago, when I first had pigs I used shavings, I had this happen once and also some up the bum.... area... and both cases has no cause for concern. Times like this I am SO glad I use fleece.

Speaking of fleece I LOVE that fabric, Mouse looks much cuter than normal, if that was at all possible.

No redness or anything out of the ordinary this morning! Hope he doesn't mind a few extra checks of his boarly bits over the next few days!

I'm going out of town Friday-Sunday so I'll have to make sure the pig-sitter checks him too. She's a vet student so I'm sure she will be much obliged :-P

My lads occasionally get hay in their boarly bits, and so far there have been no problems.

I have to say Mouse is one of the cutest piggies I've seen.

No problems still, aside from my paranoia issues, which you can read about here:

I am getting ready to leave Mr. Mouse for the weekend and am NOT liking the idea at all! I'm excited to go skiing, but wish they made pig-sized skis :)

Well, all is set and ready to go for my weekend trip. Mouse's meals are packaged for the sitter, two pages of notes are typed, cage is cleaned. I think he knows something is going on. :(

Hey, does this tunnel make my hair static-y?

Toothy sighting!
