Bag Biting Buddy

So Basil shared with you his habit of sitting in bags and now I feel I need to tell you about my recent bag-related-issue. Whee get floor time on a regular basis, which is where the hoomans put us on the floor and let us roam about and play in our pairs. Typically I find a warm spot (on the rug or by a hooman) and refuse to run about on the cold laminate floor.

Then, on Monday, I noticed it. The moutain like beast of a bag sat there, waiting for me. The straps were just begging to be nibbled. I ran over, surprising the hoomans with the speed I was able to move considering I don’t normally like to do anything!

I bit down, and it was as satisfying as I had expected!

“Buddy!” came the hoomans disapproving voice.

I glanced innocently over my shoulder in time to spot the flashy box going off in her hands.

Bother! I was caught out! There’s no denying the photographic evidence, but in my defense, they never specifically told me I wasn’t allowed to eat that bag…

How would you defend me if you were defending me in court?! Can you recommend a good lawyer with to be paid in fruit and veg?

Hope you’re having a great wheek!

Black and White Sunday – Bag of Basil

I have recently developed a habit which the hooman say is bound to end in trouble. I like bags. I like sitting on bags, climbing into bags, being one with the bag. The hoomans think one day I might end up going out with them if I get into a bag and they don’t notice!

Do you have a habit that could get you in trouble?

Happy Sunday

Pushy Piggy!

So yesterday the hooman asked you to take guesses at what I had been up to the previous evening that was so naughty. Plenty of you had brilliant ideas but no one guessed exactly the mischeif fun I had.

Now I don’t know about you but sometimes I like to pretend to be a hooman. So that night instead of cuddling in my usual spot on Mummy’s lap, I climbed off onto the sofa next to her. She said I was looking extra cute as I snuffled around the cushions. I lay down and stretched myself out to my full length as I’d seen the hooman do before when she wanted to claim a sofa as her own.

Then I realised I was at a slight height disadvantage! So I gently “encouraged” Mummy to get up.

“Now that’s not quite how it happened Basil-“

She was quite happy to move onto the floor and make way for me after a few gentle nudges…

“I think you’ll find I wasn’t that happy about-“

She got up and sat on the comfy floor. The other hoomans were quite accepting of my human dominance also.

“Well with you rumbling, biting my clothes and trying to dig your nose under me and flick up, I didn’t really have much choice! Plus you tried to nip anyone who wanted to sit down on the sofa near you, even though there was plenty of room!”

I don’t know what you are talking about hooman, I was furry comfortable!

Does anyone else like to pretend to be something else once in awhile? What are you up to today?

Happy Thursday!

Yule Get Used To It!

Mummy kept saying it but I wasn’t so sure. “Yule get used to the tree.” she insisted. I didn’t believe her but here I am, accepting the fact; Mister Tinsel Twist isn’t going anywhere.

Mummy and me have agreed that he will be leaving soon after Pigmas. No furry likes a guest that over stays their welcome! Buddy has been trying to pull that tree down whenever he gets the chance but the rest of us have made peace with him. Mummy says Pigmas is about coming together and forgiving and forgetting. So I am forgiving the tree for being here and forgetting the fact that Mummy didn’t ask permission! (As the boss pig of the house I am furry impawtent and all decisions should go through me)

*sigh* I'm so forgiving

*sigh* I’m so forgiving

What are you forgiving and forgetting for Pigmas? Another furry impawtent thing at Pigmas is giving. Whee sent off our Secret Santa Paws presents to our assigned rescue piggies and saw on facebook pigtures of them enjoying the gifts. Our two piggies have had a furry unfortunate time before they came into the rescue and one has long term health issues. It made our tummies all warm and fuzzy to know whee helped them and whee all smiled a lot. Giving is the best feeling.

Have a super Sunday efurryone

Wordy Wednesday – Yule Be Furry Impressed!

Whee are pretty sure you will be furry impressed by this. As much as whee are!

An amazing hooman that our Mummy knows on The Guinea Pig Forum made something she had imagined, a reality. Mummy has spent awhile in the run up to Pigmas worrying about piggies which will be bought as presents and hoomans will not properly research their care.

Here comes Santa Paws . . .

So Mummy thought; if whee cannot stop people from getting them, whee can at the furry least, educate them! So whee have had help putting together an advent calender containing impawtent information and fun facts for little and big hoomans alike to learn about their new additions in the run up to getting them!

You can check it out here. Just click the day to read a fact, see a pigture or hear a sound clip.

Whee hope you like it! Have a wonderful Wednesday

How To Bath Your Hoomans!

IMG_7034Our little hoomans are not altogether terrible. Occasionally they are late with our veggies or don’t give us as much food as whee would like but in all they are pretty good.

However, sometimes they have dirty fingers and with us being clean pretty piggies whee don’t like dirty fingers. So whee bath our little hoomans fingers. Mummy calls it kisses but whee are definitely bathing them.

Some of our furfriends have asked how, so whee have put together a little video explaining how whee do it.

Have a terrific Tuesday

Nacho & Noah
