Learning Our Lingo!
Hello everyone, long time no see! I have been a little under the weather for a few days but Mummy is taking good care of me and creating a mixture I call ‘Piggy Mush’. It tastes quite nice and Mummy gives it to me when I’m out in the mornings and evenings. Already I am perking up and putting on weight. Though, as I am an old chappy, I’m still a little slowed off.
Anyway. To the point of my post. Ok so I don’t expect you to be able to squeak like whee do but I would like to teach some of our language to you. I will do it in small stages. The first squeak I want to tell you about is the ‘feed me!’ squeak. It is usefully deployed around the time vegetables are due and accompanied by bar chew, and attempts to climb out of the cage. It can also be used effectively when hay is due to arrive or even just for a bit of attention.
It sounds really loud and quite drawn out. Sort of like – ‘WHEEEEE’ Then as you get more indignant ‘WHEE WHEE WHEEEEEEE!’
Here a video of Nutty demonstrating such a squeak while Mummy taps on the treat bowl (Hope it works as this is the first time I have tried putting uo a video!) :
