I have never taken on a Chronicles thread, but today is as good of a day as any!

This is the life and times of Mouse, my (recently) lone piggy who lives a life of ease in Central Iowa.

Today marks the 4 year anniversary of the day I brought Mouse home from TCGPR in Minneapolis to join his brothers, Lew and Julius. (may they RIP at the bridge)

Image

He was shy at first:

Image

But soon began zoomies on a daily basis! Caught in the act!

Image

Happy lettuce times with his brothers, he misses them terribly :(

Image

This chronicle will continue, but lets reflect on how tiiiiny Mouse was then:

Image

And how big he is now!

Mouse had his floor time, and when he went back into his cage afterwards, he POPCORNED! He hasn't popcorned since Lew died - maybe he likes living with me after all :)

And he says thank you to all his new fans, more pictures to come soon!!

Well, mouse-lovers, there are new pictures from floor time!!!

Hello, admirers!! My hooman FINALLY came home and let me out.

Image

It was fun and all, until someone came along and stole my feets! Ahh!

Image

With no feets, its a good thing there's lettuce delivery around here!

Image

There will be a video to come later, but until then - Kisses to all who love me!!

Video!

Our downstairs neighbors just got a puppy - in the video, every time he freezes, the dog had started barking. Haha. No worries, he finished that lettuce and tomato off as soon as I picked him up.

Hopefully this link works and isn't too big. :-/

(PS - Done posting pics till next page, lest I get in trouble :) )

Okay, random floor time question - and I know I should totally know this by now - is it normal for them to eat their non-caecal droppings? As in the normal beans?

Good question -- mine seem to, or their caecal droppings look very similar. Some they do, some they don't. Is your pig eating all his droppings? Or just some?

He ate like four in a row, a few of which were softer so they may have been caecals. I know what they're supposed to look like in the cage, but don't normally catch him him eating them so I don't know. Everything from today was normal, and I just cleaned his cage so we'll see what he does tonight. He is eating everything I put in front of him, and gained half an ounce. :) I was just wondering.

Hello, again - Mouse here!! It's cold here in Iowa, so my mom has to make sure the thermostat is turned up so I don't get chilly! I had an extended floor time tonight, in a different room than usual! My mom told me it was fine, but I don't think she realizes how fast eagles can attack! :)

Someone needs to teach my mom not to hover around me when she's home! I think she has piggie-paranoia or something after she lost my brothers, but she's driving me crazy! I'm being a good boy and am eating all my hay and veggies, but she doesn't seem to notice that. She keeps picking up my pigloo and looking in my cage to make sure I'm okay, even though i am JUST FINE! :P Someone make her stop! A guy can't even get any napping done at this rate!

I got a different hay rack tonight - this one stands up in the corner, since I'm rather small, so its easier for me to reach! I love to eat out of it!

That's all for now - more later! One picture for you, here I am hiding behind my squirrel friend - while stuffing my face!
