Goosey, it's crazy how much of his midriff was hair. Temperature and hygiene benefits aside, it was worth chopping his hair off just to get a good feel of him. Last time his hair was this short was when I'd just got him and he was a bag of bones so it's nice to know what his actual normal shape is. He's very toned, I'm impressed. I hope you're going to shame Mozzie by taking pics?
Anyway, the above led to an impromptu photo shoot.
Stephen sends profuse apologies for the lack of him in this post but he had something very important to attend to.
Oh, and I'm only telling you this because I've beefed up security against pignappers but Robert has progressed from grooming my arms to, on very special occasions, grooming my face. That's right, kisses.

They can come visit me anytime, like next month. No need to hire a sitter then. I will take care of everything :)
So far, everyone who's met Bobs has giggled. Even my mum who gets squicked out by anything smaller than a cat. The white markings and triangular appearance of his face mean that you really notice when he tilts his head a little and it makes him very expressive. Add that to his outgoing chatterbox nature and you have a sort of cartoon pet.
He and Stephen have a mirroring thing going on. My friend calls them Pavlov's pigs. I need to try to film it. When I feed them veg, pellets or dried grass, I always hand feed them a couple of pieces first before putting it in the cage. So when they know something's coming, they beg at the side of the cage. But they do it in absolute synchronicity. Their front paws hit the sides of the cage in absolute unison. I'm so used to them I hadn't noticed til BF pointed it out.
