My name is Clover, the eldest girl of the Schimpf girls. I didn't always have this nice fluffy life. I was sold in a pet store that didn't care who they sold me to. After only a few weeks at this *shudders* "home" I was brought back to the store. The people that bought be said there was something wrong with me, WELL YAH!!! I don't remember what happend but mommy saids that I was probably dropped. I had a broken leg and head trama.
After my sugery to fix my leg I was put into the pet stores "sick" room where I was put into a dark bin and given hay, pellets, veggies and water.
I don't know how long I was there but the next thing I know there comes a woman who I now call mommy. She smiled at me and I knew I was going to be ok.
I was very scared of everything, for fear of being hurt again.
As you can see when I was young I was very scared.
Now 11 months later I am a happy healthy woman. BUT thats not all. Durning May mommy and daddy had to go away for a week end. Thinking that the lady who took care of all of us would not do anything but just feed us. Mommy didn't tell her that the boys where boys and the girls where girls.
A few months later I gave birth to three happy healthy babies. While I am ok mommy has sworen never to let that happen again. She told me that I was lucky that sometimes piggies can die from having babies. SO I agree with her!
Here are me and my babies, August 4th the day they where born.
Now I'm getting ahead of myself.
I forgot all about Lila. Lila was bought at PetSmart by mommy so I could have a cage mate since I'm a girl and shouldn't be around boys.
I didn't like Lila at first because she would hide UNDER, yes under me. But since then we have grown to love each other. Lila is younger then me. We think her Birthday is Dec. sometime.
Here we are enjoying a good lunch.
Another few shots of our lunch, mommy likes these and asked me to post them.
(thats me pregnant with my babies!)
I think I'll take a break and introduce my baby girls in a little bit as my small paws are sore from typing so much.
Hello everyone Clover again. After a lovely rest I am back to tell some more stories of us Schimpf Girls.
Just thought I would answer some questions. My leg did heal very nicely, at first I had a limp, but thats gone now. But all in all I am 100%.
Now back to my babies. As I said before, my pregnancy was not a planned on nor am I planning on ever going threw that again. Mommy has told me that while my two daughter will be staying with me my son Mojo, will be going to live with mommy's sister Katie, I've met Katie and I know that she'll be a great mommy to my Mojo.
Ahh thats my boy, Mojo, named by Katie, he is my only son and though I will miss him I know he will be happy. Right now he is living in another room in a extra large pet store cage until monday when Katie comes from a place called "Fox Creek". Mommy has told me that it is 3 hours away. I will miss him dearly though.
Well I think my daughter are a little mad that I haven't said anything about them.
Pixie, is my funny girl, she tells me all sorts of jokes and loves to hide in our hay. Here she is telling my mommy a joke.
Finally my Buttercup. She is my sweet girl girl. She hates being dirty and loves to talk to anyone who will listen. She also LOVES having her photos taken. Look at this beautiful shot of her. We call is love.
But then again I also like having my photos taken. So I think she got it from me!
Today is a good day, Mommy has changed out our bedding and everything smells so nice and clean, cage day is my favorite day of the week. I get to sit in a clean cage and watch my daughters run around and popcorn all over the cage. Usually like today, Pixie starts to sing and chat about as she popcorns. Shes such a sweet thing.
Lila has asked me that I hold off on any more information about her as she wants to write her own story. She told me tomorrow some time she'll be posting her side of the story. I look forward to reading what she has to say as I'm sure you do too.
I thought I would send out a little update.
Eve has been with the gals for a few weeks now. Everything went very well. I plan on getting a group shot of every one soon. Eve has some how become queen. AND shes such a well piggie. She pushes everyone out of the way when food comes down. She well not let anyone eat until shes full. So I've been starting to take her out when veggies come because a week ago she tired to eat ALL the veggies... *laughs*
For Christmas I've gotten two cuddle cups from a lady who lives 40 mins away. I'm going to be picking them up Sunday. One is a Hello Kitty one and a Flower one. They wont get it until Christmas. I'm thinking of going to a dollar store and picking up some tiny stockings and putting small toys in them for the pigs as well.. but I'm not sure.
I'll take pictures of the cuddle cups and pigs soon.
their cups. Sadly we had a really really bad winter storm
here in Edmonton, Alberta last weekend. There was over
20cm of snow, which isn't that bad but the wind pushed it
into HUGE snow drifts (some 4 feet tall). I ended up having
to walk to work because we couldn't get out of our drive
way or down the block. And the Lady I was picking it up from is
going away to mexico until after christmas.
My husband picked up a tri pod last night, I'm going to try it out
while I take pictures tomorrow, tomorrow is my first day off
in about a week.
On a piggie note, I have never seen 5 piggies that can drink
so much water!!! I have two water bottles, one is a pop
bottle with pet store bottle thing on it. Its about 1Liter.
The other is a normal water bottle. In one day they have
drank half the 1 liter and all of the 24oz one. Its nuts!
Personally I think they have to be playing with it because they
don't leak, trust me I have checked. And no one has a
UTI or other health problems at the moment. Which leaves
either playing with it or they just drink alot.
Today is cage cleaning day, not just spot cleaning but all out
cage cleaning. I never get happy look from anyone when I do
this, Clover always gives me dirty looks, she likes laying in
filth, Lila is the only one who doesn't, I swear.
I shall hopefully post photos soon.
By the way is it weird when you africa soft furred rat will
drink out of your cup but still wont let you pick him up after a
whole year of having him?
