It was five years ago on the 11th that I found Pepsi dead in her cage. Four days later I brought Pepino home. Since my last posting we have had more work done on the basement. Both boys handled it remarkably well, even Pellegrino, who is such a scaredy pig.

They are such brave boys. I heard of a pig or pigs supposedly dying of fright after hearing firecrackers go off. Then, the other day I cut Pellegrino’s butt fur. I took off my skirt as I didn’t want him urinating on it. We both ended up screaming. I actually screamed louder due to the huge scratch marks on my bare legs.

A classroom guinea pig peed on my dress when I was in the 4th grade. I ended up giving one of them a home at the end of the school year. That's what my wet skirt led me to!! Sorry about your legs - ouch.

It looked worse than it was, Bookfan.

It was seven years ago today I brought Pepsi home.

Eleven years ago this month Pippin died on my birthday and a few days later I found Perpetua and her babies at the Montgomery County animal shelter. In August 2011 we had an earthquake that shook a good bit of the east coast. I felt sorry for Perpetua as she had lost her mate, Pandora, a few days before. Perpetua's cage was on the floor near the window and a console with a lot of glass and china knicknacks, I'm sure the vibrations must have been incredible but it didn't seem to phase her much. As Tammy from Cavymadness says, piggies can be so week and so strong.

It was in September of 2011, exactly ten years after the attack on the World Trade Center, that I adopted Puzzle. He was supposed to help put together the "puzzle" that was my life. Instead, he ended up breaking my heart, dying as the result of a congenital malocclusion that was no one's fault. He was less than two years old.

Pepino is such a funny guy. I had a Buffalo Wild Wings bag on the floor and he crawled right into it. I could have just carried him off in it as it had a handle on it. Uber Eats bags are a blessing--I can hide the piggy carriers in them and carry them in an Uber without them being detected.
