Well, we have a new treat-getting routine. I hand whatever it is to Snickers while Cici stands right behind him. Snickers -- who apparently hasn't yet figured out the pattern here -- turns cheerfully around to go eat his snack in peace and discovers Cici and immediately starts whining. She mugs him for his treat. He turns back around to complain to me, and I hand him another treat. Everybody's happy, and Cici doesn't have to interact with me directly. :)

Love it! Cici is one smart little cookie!

Just woke up to the distinctive whine of a girl-pig being tortured by her cagemate. I went over to remind Snickers of his Chivalry 101 lessons and found him huddled in a corner crying as tiny, pear-shaped Cici took his lunch money. She's going to fit right in.

It sounds like Cici is going to rule the roost. :) Poor Snickers!

Heh, so much for worrying that Snick was going to bully her. Her tiny little body will be commanding her to eat All The Things so Snickers is going to have to learn to eat fast. Good training for when he has mini-pigs under his paws learning what pigs eat.

It does sound like CiCi's wasted no time fitting in!

It gets even weirder. Tonight I went to take Cici out for veggies, and Snickers said NO. He blocked her body with his, rumbled at me, and even sort of nibbled at me. Is there some kind of hormone that he can smell that's making him protective? Or is he just super suspicious that she's getting really excellent treats?

I'll bet it is his innate chivalry all stoked by her "delicate condition." ;-)

He's being a most excellent Nanny Boar and should be rewarded with some Mommy lap time with some of the good treats.

I think there's something telling him what's happening. What, I don't know.

How confusing for him, he got neutered and was told there'd be no little Snickerdoodles and now his girlfriend's pregnant - it's an Easter miracle!

Only Snickers is macho enough to be neutered and still have a pregnant girlfriend. Has the Snick worn the hay hat of impending fatherhood, yet?

I think it's wonderfully sweet that he is being protective. He is going to make a fabulous nanny boar. Maybe you could pull them both out for a few minutes, then put him back with a small bribe and let her finish her dinner.

Never a dull moment with team top pig. Very sweet behaviour on Snicker's part.

Well, he's not joking. He's my sweet marshmallow of a boar so I'm not worried he's going to bite, but he certainly strongly prefers I not go near Cici. And she's happy to hide her tiny body behind him, which I just love seeing, because I keep thinking of this:

Karma really is a beautiful thing. Snick has been doing a lot of the "Mom! She's LOOKING at me!" whining recently. I haven't seen Cici try to hump him, although he'd deserve it. But she does take anything he has in his mouth, and she's obviously talking smack at him at other times. And nonetheless he throws his fat little body between my hands and his new sweetie when I come for her. <3
