Piggy Parenthood. Not A Job . . . An Adventure!

Our new addition, Baby Basil, has surprised me. As with when Nutty arrived to be my new companion, I find myself bouncing around the cage more. Squeaking a little louder. Being more friendly. (Not like Buddy who is struggling to get more than a few minutes sleep at once and is too exhausted to play all the time. Though he did some very impressive zoomies today!)

It is as though he has rubbed off on me! I am quite an elderly gentlepig now so to behave this way is quite peculiar. I haven’t even really met him. Whee just squeak at each other across the garden or the living room.

Nutty appears quite jealous really! Mummy always used to call him Baby Nut but now his middle is no longer ‘widdle’ he cannot really be consider a baby. He is far more like a stroppy teenager, rumbling around the cage and complaining loudly should someone ignore him for longer than three seconds.

Mummy is careful to give us equal attention (well I would expect no less!) but this isn’t enough for Nutty. I am seriously considering the advice giving to Buddy on handling Basil and sitting on Nutty until he calms down and listens.

I may not be a spring chicken but with my newfound bouncy-popcorning, there is life in this old piggy yet!

  1. Awww a new baby is bound to cause furrie rumbles. But you should all embrace Baby Basil :)) You have all got to teach Basil your infinite piggy-wisedom 😀 Hehehe, Basil certainly sounds like lots of fun! Wish my hammys could join in! 😀 xxx

  2. Amazing how a baby can make you feel young again! That’s great!

  3. I agree, Nibbles….I think having Baby Basil in the house is shaking things up well (other than of course the fact Buddy’s asleep on his little feet!!)…..Basil needs his elderpigs to teach him the ways of the world so step right up and give him the benefit of your piggy wisdom!

    Kitty hugs, Sammy

  4. That little piggy is like a vitamin for you, Nibbles! I think Basil is delicious – just sayin’.

    Love and licks,

    • I don’t think Basil would want you to eat him . . . . But basil the herb is nommy. Mummy plans to grow some in her herb patch when the weather is nice enough to do gardening.


  5. Nutty, the teenager and Baby Basil – that sounds like a lot of fun!!! Hope your cage will not be like a ‘teenage-circus’… :o))))

  6. Hi Nibbles. Glad to hear you have been given a new lease of life. Just out of interest, what films do you like with all that pop-corning?

    Snuggles, Peaches, Daisy and Cinnamon. xxxx
