When our human male first encountered us he was pretty skeptical regarding the fact that we could amuse him. In the meanwhile he changed his opinion and became our truthful servant, reprimanding the human female when I was missing water or hay and he even started buying the 20 kilos sac of sawdust to make sure we always have it. And this brings us to the yesterday moment…
The human male went yesterday to buy a new bag of sawdust and he saw again (for the 4th time!) a white Guinea Pig still in the pet shop. Apparently he was there for several months and because of his white fur and red eyes, nobody wanted him. (I don’t understand this – I have the same appeareance, but I’m loved by my humans. True, some others think I’m creepy, but I don’t listen to them.) Sharing the same cage, there was a new one: black with white bottom and some brown and white hair in the middle of his head. The human male felt for it instantly…
It’s pointless to tell exactly how in few hours two almost sane people turned into some weirdos with four Guinea Pigs. But now we are four in the house! Maybe we weren’t occupying their time enough. Or maybe they just feel the need to save the others from a not very good fate in a pet shop. I still don’t know how to take this situation… I’m so confused that I spent 5 minutes in the arms of the human female letting her to caress me. She was also surprised!
We did not meet yet our new roomies because they are in quarantine for 40 days! We’ve just heard that they are called Worf (the black one) and Data (the white one); and that the white one has red ears, not grey like mine. Although the person from the pet shop said Worf is 3 months old, our human female doesn’t believe this: the new piggy is 723g, too much for 3 months. So, either he is really 3 months and a giant one, either the guys from the pet shop have no idea what they are talking about. But the human female wants to solve this mystery because she is decided to choose an anniversary date for each of us. Data seems normal for his 5 months, but our humans suspect he is less than this with at least 2 weeks.
Anyway, they seem not to be used with vegetables and very frightened, so I’m happy our humans took them. For the moment they are using our old very small cage until a new solution will be found. The human female already researched on the Internet and found some options, so the human male needs to visit all the stores in town to find the elements. And the female is worried they might fight and she should separate them like she did with us.
I just hope they won’t abandon us… Or forget about us. They are OUR humans! I could share them, but not give up to them for good. But maybe all this will end up well and one of the new piggies may even agree to share the same room with me. Imagine only how it would be to have two white piggies in the same spot. 😀
Before going back to my wood house and finding new methods to stay still for more than 2 minutes, I’ll share with you one photo of Worf and Data (I took it from the computer, as the human female already started using the camera on them!).
(Tomorrow Kirk will teach you how to embarrass your human.)
P.S. Yes, I spoke with Kirk, and we agreed to share the blog with Worf and Data, if they wish… We are good piggies! But we are still not changing anything to this blog. Not just yet.
