Princess Truvy P. Butterbean discovered something this weekend, and shared her discovery with Steve.

Image
The fun thing about the PigCam is that I can spend my morning clipping like a crazy person, think I've made the fleece pretty secure, and then sit at work all day watching lumps of fleece run around. Here's the current view: Cici and a nameless lump over on the right.

Image
Yesterday Steve had sub-fleece zoomies for about an hour. I made a video.

What a little sweet-heart! So cute the way he was tunneling under the blankets. I think he forgot the way out and when he did get out he was so thrilled he ran for Joy!

I felt sorry for the piggy who got head butted and the floor was moving on her.

That's Truvy, and minutes earlier she was doing the same thing to Steve, so don't feel too sorry for her!

Cici will also burrow on occasion, but she's super prone to static and I think she's actually noticed the correlation. She's far less likely to be under there than the other two.

Your home clearly has something about it that makes pigs want to burrow

My Flossie likes to burrow also. Drives me crazy when I'd at least like to keep the hay on top of the pads. :o/ I worry sometimes, too, about heatstroke. Floss is not the sharpest knife in the block.

I worry sometimes, too, about heatstroke.

That is a grave concern here too. Especially in our hot Summers. Glad Truvy, got her own back on Steve.

Truvy has discovered that VickieWhiskers lives next door.

Image
And STEVE and Cici have discovered snuggling.

Image
I'm on my way to India. As a reminder, this is the "proof of life" photo I got the last time I left my husband with pigs for this long. I look forward to seeing what he comes up with this time!

Excuse my ignorance but what is it he's holding? I Love the snuggling one. Also love Steve running round like a whirl wind in the video. My husband and I must play it at least 3-5 times a day and it makes us smile each and every time.

Salad tongs! My husband isn't a big fan of rodents and he sent it to me and said "I found a good way to move them when I have to clean the cage." (But don't worry, he was kidding! Even if it would have been possible to lift the Brave Top Pig with salad tongs. Which it wasn't, because he was a pig of ample size.)

Wah, you're so lucky. I miss snuggling. My pair will sprawl within inches but there must be clear inches.

May your trip be a good one and may those "proof of life" photos be plentiful.

My husband does things like that. Once when I left for 3 weeks he sent me a photo of the baby we'd gotten just before I left. She was bundled between 2 slices of bread. He said he'd forgotten to pick up lunch meat at the store that day, but he found a way to remedy that.

The second time (2 yrs later), he took the same pig (we have 5 now) and put her on the cutting board I use for their food, and tied a small dowel along her back. (The string was loosely tied.) Husband said we were going to have a very special BBQ when I got back!

I guess our men have weird but interesting minds. ;o)

If you want to see the pics he sent me, check out my chronicle - "One Little, Two Little, Three Little Guinea Pigs".

GrannyJu, I've seen those pictures. I sent the kebab one to my husband when you posted it, in fact. I live the expression on the pig's face. No fear, just "Sigh."

Halloween was a festive affair chez nous!

Image
And by "festive affair," I mean the usual chaos. Cici was supposed to be the devil, but she was having none of that crap, and started rubbing herself on everything in sight to get that cape off. So we did a quick switcharoo and she seemed a LITTLE less annoyed in the turkey costume. Steve just munched a carrot. And little Butterbean did that thing dogs do when you put on the Cone of Shame: she froze. She did not move. She disregarded all treats. She did not struggle. She just... became the bee.

Image

So that was fun. In other funny news, I just clicked over to the PigCam in time to see Cici and VickieWhiskers having a neighborly chat, and Steve being a giant butt. Great example of a rumblestrut though! (Click for video)

Aaa, I can't believe I forgot the other Halloween picture! Here's VickieWhiskers, who posed like a champ -- although admittedly her costume wasn't as annoyingly involved as the others'.

Image
And here's a less-blurry, carrot-enabled version of the group shot. Note that poor Butterbean hasn't moved.

Poor Butterbean! hahahaha! That would be hilarious if I didn't understand how she felt - deer in the headlights sort of emotion I imagine. It is funny though.

They are all super cute and from his right side, Steve could be my Flossie's twin!

Poor poor Butterbean. She looks really dejected. Pathetic. Abject. :-D

Love the pictures!
