Look At Me, Look At This!

You may have been wondering yesterday what had Noah’s attention. Some of you thought he was staging a jail break but I can tell you that he was in fact . . .

Watching me (and Basil)! Even though whee started grumbling and rumbling pretty soon after whee spotted each other Mummy still managed to find time to snap some cute pigtures of us.

It’s not often that she will get all of us in one pigture as whee are not four close furfriends but rather two brotherly like pairings. It is actually very difficult to bond more than two boars (male piggies) together and Mummy says that Basil and Noah both have furry strong pigsonalities so would probably not get along well.

Anyway, whee got pretty worked up seeing each other so Mummy hooman let us try something she has been using recently to calm herself and it worked like magic. So magical in fact whee want to share it with you, whee will see if Mummy can video us so you can see our reaction. The magical meditation tool which helped even some over excited piggies find zen is this site – calm.com When whee listen and look at it on Mummy’s laptop whee become almost trance like and Mummy likes to stroke us and give us a little brush or massage which just improves the time! Sometimes whee don’t like the song/background/theme so Mummy refreshes it and whee get a new one just like that.

Whee highly recommend it if you need to de-stress! What do you normally like to do to help you relax?

Anyway whee hope you have a furry relaxing Thursday

Not Old . . . Experienced!

There are a few, sadly too common, misconceptions about us boy guinea pigs. One that has caught our hoomans notice recently is the belief that when whee are no longer tiny babies whee cannot be paired up with a new friend. This is WRONG!

Even when it is printed somewhere you think you can trust . . . Don’t believe it.

A good, knowledgable guinea pig rescue will be able to pair up almost any guinea pig. Our hooman has done it herself multiple times. There are choices too. Either pairing with a baby boy piggy which in Mummy’s experience works very well. Or ‘boar dating’ with male piggies who are a bit older to find a good match (this is better done by someone with experience who can read the signs of piggy body language) Or even a final option of neutering and pairing with one or more female companions.

There is no need for us highly social pets to live alone.

Just setting the record straight this fine Monday!

Have a great one efurryone

Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil
