Love, love, love it. MORE, PLEASE!

I kept myself quite busy while I was away too.
I cut my hair, I started a recipe box, I redid the cage and snapped at all pigs and humans in the house - Ben will tell you all about it!
I truly enjoyed writing up this episode when I was sick that week, then Meimei got sick the very next day and I was busy fussing over her that I didn't get to post this in time.
Looking back these past 2 and half years, my piggies and I have shared so much; they are an integral part of our dysfunctional family life.
The only way to make it better was to share it with my friends, which I so gladly did. :)
I had to put it up, as a present for myself, to see Meimei's bubbly pictures and attitude towards life again, this is the way I would like our friends to remember her by.
Here is something on the side, it is about Beibei.
She has been getting foot spurs on both of her front paws for many months now, but I noticed it has gotten worse (the speed of growth) this past month.
The reason it is getting to me is that she now chews on it, and she once actually chewed it open and started to bleed a little.
I check it weekly, and soak in some warm chlorohexeim and trim it off with a nail clipper when needed.
Is there something I can do to slow it down?
She is housed in fleece, but uses Carefresh in her haybin.
I always worry I am going to nick her when I trim the spurs off.
I hope you all enjoyed our little tricks; McMac proves he may be a senior citizen, but he still got the brains and the looks of a star.

Beibei is only 3 years old at the most...
But she has had the for almost a year already, but not at this speed of growth, and it was only on one of her front paw before...
I worry I am going to cut her when I trim those bits off, I also worry that she is going to chew her little footsie open and get infected.
It scared Ben when he saw bloody paw prints in her cage last week!
I just clip off as much of the spur as I can. Caramel doesn't mind. Since you bed on fleece and change frequently, I wouldn't really worry too much if she's going to get infected. But the soak is a good idea.
Just went to check on Caramel and didn't find spurs. I guess they come and go?
