Weird things involving the poop

guinea_pigs_tales_worf_profileWe’ve told you before our people are crazy. And strange… And now I believe even stronger in this statement because lately the human female is very attentive to our poop. Mine and Data’s, not Spock’s and Kirk’s which seem to satisfy her curiosity.

For few weeks now she believes my poop is lose. But not lose enough to get us to the vet. This I don’t get: if we don’t need to go to the vet, then why worrying? Anyway, she decided to help my digestion and gave me Actimel. And I became addicted… But, after stopping the treatment, my poop was once again a little bit lose, enough to make her go crazy again.

Me being happy, active and normal was of no importance to her and her mined kept turning and analysing why my poop is not as she wanted it. Finally, she decided that I don’t eat enough hay. This was true. I am not very passionate about it. Or at least not about the one she used to give me. Something triggered a brilliant idea in her brain and made her understand I did not like that kind of hay, but I liked another one.

So, on Monday the human male was rushed to the supermarket to buy another brand of hay for me and only for me. Now I consume a little bit more hay and my poop is satisfying for her. Still not perfect, but she seems less stressed.

Then, she had some issues with Data’s poop also: she thought is too small. Again, it doesn’t matter that he is healthy in general and that he poops normal quantities for a piggy (a lot!!!), but the fact that his poop is smaller than of the rest of us. After days and days of reflections, she decided it was time to check Data’s butt. So she tortured him a little, not managing to get to any valid conclusion. Just to make Data afraid, and this convinced him to poop larger poops…

Now, I am asking you: have you ever seen a human that interested in the poop of another human?! It is embarrassing to have your poop checked and analysed, but she doesn’t seem to care. I swear I need to have a serious conversation with her about this…

Lost battle

guinea_pigs_tales_Data_profileFirst of all, we are sorry for our absence. But… We were very busy campaigning, planning and executing in order to help Kirk winning the contest launched by Kevin the Cavy.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, Kirk is some 120 votes behind the Guinea Pig on the first place. We suspect that piggy taking over his human Facebook account and hacking all the friends’ accounts to get votes. Of course, maybe he is more fortunate and his human has a lot of Facebook friends, not like ours that have only four hundred something (the female) and one hundred (the male).

Anyway, we were really creative and all working for the same purpose, including the human female. She gave us access to her Facebook account and her own blog and we could spam all her “friends” with requests for votes. Some of other Romanian bloggers and friends even helped us and shared our message.

Worf was in charge of supervising the contest album and the number of votes. He had spent so many days staring at that screen that he almost turned into a mole. Not that it would have been very difficult as he is already black and brown…

Spock was in charge of the campaign flyers and he managed to do a good job. He even abstained himself from chewing the posters.

Of course I was in charge of planning and organizing everything, so I’ve spent several days buried in papers and analyzing names, sending messages and fighting for our cause.

Kirk had only one thing to do: stay in shape. And he seems to be very good at it.

So, we admit we have no means to overlap the difference of votes. But we are very thankful for the almost 300 votes we already got. Our Facebook page has only 83 followers, so we never expected so many votes. Anyway, if you still want to help and vote, you can do it following this link.

I’m going to be sad in my corner…

Campaigning for Kirk

guinea_pigs_tales_profile_kirkEurope is in the middle of some elections for the European Parliament. Also some countries are electing their own parliaments… USA had some elections also. So, we thought, why not campaigning for something?! All these frenzy got us and we don’t want to stay aside.

As we do not like politics, it was a tough decision to pick the subject of our campaign. Fresh vegies and the right to poop and pee whenever and wherever were already gained by our ancestors. The right of having a human servant is also implicit, so what should we fight for?! But thanks to Kevin the Cavy we found a purpose in life! At least for short term… So, I was asked by the Gang to participate in the contest and run for the possibility to have an appearance in a sketch. It was hard to accept this challenge, but I had to admit my pictures were the cutest.

The goal had been settled, how about the champagne?! Data underlined very well that we should focus on Facebook given the fact that I need some likes. Everyone participated in the making off of this champagne! Being focused on Facebook, an investment in banners and flyers is almost useless and we decided to save the money for diapers and fresh vegies.

But on we unleashed the beast on Facebook! The human female took this very personally and threatened her more than 400 “friends” with excommunication in case they don’t vote for me. True, not all of them check the updates regularly, so I yesterday I had only 85 votes, but she is fighting for it. I just hope her boss won’t find out and fire her…

In case you want to hack into your biped’s Facebook account and vote for me, you can give a like here. And if you are not yet convinced I’m cute enough to win, just take a look of this picture.
