That's right, five! It's an extra special birthday for me, because Wilbur is the first of my pigs to reach five years old. Maisie and Damien came very close, but Wilbur is the first to officially hit the mark.
Of course, technically today isn't Wilbur's "official" birthday, as I don't really know when that is, but I chose today because this was the day I adopted him. Personally, I don't think he looks a day older.
I got him a card and a balloon, and he had all his favourite veggies to eat, plus a big pile of hay and lots and lots of special birthday fuss.
(The cake is for me!)
Happy birthday, Wilbur. I hope you're here for many more.
It's a lovely colour isn't it? It's one of my favourites. I used to think it was lilac, but after seeing pictures of other lilac piggies I'm not so sure. Maybe beige?aww damian and maisie have similar colours to my pudding :)
Thank you! When I adopted him, his name was Perry, but I didn't like it so I changed it. I think he looks a lot more like a Wilbur any way.Wilbur, love the name. Happy birthday!!
Albert is everybody's favourite. Maybe it's because he's big and fluffy and daft with a cute face. I have a guinea pig calender on my wall (not the Guinea Lynx one unfortunately) and my boyfriend is always saying the pigs in it aren't as cute as Albert. I love both my boys, but I have a bit of a soft spot for Wilbur. I like to think of him as the discerning (wo)man's pig as he's more laid back and not overtly funny like Albs (although he does have his moments).
Whenever I clean the boys out I put them in the big cuddle bed together. It's the only time they don't squabble (well, usually). As I was cleaning I heard Albert make an angry "uh-uh-uh" noise and I went to see what was going on. He and Wilbur were sitting top to tail in the cuddle bed, and when I lifted Albert up I noticed his chin was wet and there was a damp patch near Wilbur's bum. Wilbur had obviously peed in the cuddle bed and because his butt was next to Albert's head some of it had ended up on poor Albert!
