Keep meaning to ask if you knew Albert had his own city in MN? Albertville. =)

Went in this evening to discover the air vent in the pig room was blocked and I'd forgotten to open it. It wasnt hot-hot (Ouiser and Snickers still spent much of the afternoon borrowing!), but it was warm. I freaked out and put two ice blocks in each cage, under the fleece.

When I came back ten minutes later, I found the Snick literally chillaxing between the two upstairs blocks: front paws on one, butt on the other. He practically had a thought bubble over his head saying "ahhh.'

I just changed the ice packs. I removed the warm ones by loosening one of the gazillion clips holding our fleece in place, and I went to the freezer to swap them out. I was gone literally about 30 seconds.

I came back just in time to see the OuiserRoosterButt vanish into a fleece gap. The Snick was already underneath, running happily in circles.

I guess it's good when couples share interests and hobbies, right?

They do sound like a pair! I'm suprised they are burrowing under the fleece with the high temperatures.

Saturday night is a happening night at Team Snowflake's place!

"What?"

Meanwhile, downstairs, something that looks suspiciously like affection is going on. Well, on The Snick's part, anyway. Ouiser isn't so sure.

(Also, I have no clue what's going on with Snickers's butt mullet.)

He's probably statically charged with all the running around under the fleece!

See, under all that ugliness towards his fellow pigs, there is a mighty handsome fella.

I just gave Tumbleweed a trim today. He's jealous of how long Albert's fur is in comparison. Hehehe!

I'd post a picture of today's Pig of The Day but it would just be a picture of a lump of fleece. Ouiser is FREAKING OUT to burrow recently. It's their turn to be on the top floor, which definitely seems to increase her anxiety, but she was doing it last week too. And Snickers just follows along, like a happy-go-lucky idiot, not noticing that it is REALLY HOT.

After un-burrowing her three times yesterday, clipping the fleece literally every 2 inches, and moving the PigCam so I could monitor closely while at work (although of course "monitoring" doesn't mean I can do a darn thing!), I finally decided to return to the Scrap Of Fleece Faux Floor that worked last fall. If they overheat they'll come out from under it, right?

Anyway, some PigCam photos for those who want to squint and monitor along with me.

Here we see Ouiser having a snack (in the open!) while Snickers emerges from under the Faux Floor.
Image

Snickers is now manning the food bowl (center bottom), while Ouiser prepares to re-enter the double security of FauxFloor + tent.
Image

What you can't see: the FauxFloor bucking and twisting as Ouiser busily folds and tidies things underneath it.

You're very creative! How many people would set up a faux floor for a persistent beast?

You guyyyyyyys! I bought some peegs from Morumoto and I am so psyched because they are on their way to me! I posted the pictures
in her plushies thread, but here's one for fun. Go see!

(Also, I will of course post pics of the pigs WITH their plushies when they arrive!)
