First of all, you need to understand that our biggest amusement is to eat, poop, sleep, repeat. I don’t know who said this, but he or she was a genius! So, trying to keep us busy with toys and different objects may or may not work, depending on our mood. One day we could find a paper bag amazing and the other utterly boring. You, human, should not abandon the purpose of amusing us and you should keep trying finding potential nice things for us to play with.
Now, back to me and Spock… I think our biggest amusement source is fooling around with the wood houses. The human puts under them some puppy pads because we usually sleep, wee and poop inside, but we just love ramming them around making a huge mess! Usually, I fall asleep in one of them, Spock decides he wants to sleep in the same one, I refuse to get out, and he starts pushing it with me inside. Before this, he growls and prowls around my house in a futile attempt to convince me to step out. Of course I refuse.
We only have photos because every time she tries to record us, we stop. 😀
Sometimes we just move the wood houses with the sole purpose of making a mess and see the hf’s face when she discovers what we’d been up to. She tries putting everything back in good order, but in 5 minutes the mess is back! Also, sometimes we are just not in the mood of elongating us for the hay and we push the wood house under the manger and then comfortably install ourselves on top of it and chew hay.
Except this very demanding activity, we also get from time to time some willow stuffs to chew on. For example, a willow tube. It takes weeks to finish it, but it’s super fun to drag it all over the place, get inside, come up with a chewing strategy and consume it. Some paper bags filled with hay are also a nice way to pass the time, especially when the bag is large enough for one piggy to sleep in, but not for both of us. So, the other one needs wait his turn and pushing the bag around it’s a no go due to the fact that it’s not as solid as our houses.
Oh, and I almost forgot! Stealing veggies from each other’s months and running in the wood house and hiding with them can be also super fun.
So, see, human, we manage to amuse ourselves very well. Anyway, before buying/giving us new toys, make sure they are safe for us and we couldn’t get heart or poisoned by playing with them.
