You know that feeling when you just want to do everything possible for you piggies? Even if their lives are already more than satisfactory, or in fact...plain spoiled....buy you still wanna do more for them?
I always wished i could expand the cage more. But I've already used up every last possible space in the room.....so the only way I can build...is build UP!
So...if you recall...this is what our previous second floor looks like. (That gorgeous house in the far end is made by Windespirit, I will get to that later!)
*gasp* what's this? a third floor??? I hope my babies are not afraid of heights
I placed Puffy up there as my "guinea pig"
"uh...how do I get off?"
"hmm...this seems rather steep ><"
"I'll have a go....*gulp*"
Puffy backs up, rofl. Puffy is not used to the fiddlesticks, they have a very bumpy footing. I ran out of grids so I had to put fiddlesticks there instead. Puffy would tentatively make his way down the ramp....but as soon as you touches the wood...he hurries back up! Twice!
"MOM, get me off of here!!!"
Since mom is not answering...Puffy tries to ease his fright by backing to a corner...
"How much longer........
*squeezes eyes shut....tremble tremble*"
Oh! Shylie to the rescue! aww...what a supportive loving wifey, being there for her scared sh*tless hubby
"Mind you, I'm not going to be here all day! we just happen to be in the same place at the same time, pure coincidence!"
"A real woman embraces her independent side!"
aww...Puffy is disappointed and hurt! He was just about to warm up to her
Puffy flops down in the corner and awaits his magically appearing rescue plane....
"*glances at watch*....okay! Time for my manicure appointment. have a nice day, Puffy, adios!!"
Off Shylie trots! wow, would you look at THAT! She's not shy or scared at all! What a transformation she has made since coming to live with meeee=)
"Don't go...come back!"
Shylie takes no notice....
"Hmm...I think I make a turn here..."
Shylie really doesn't give a poop about her hubby
"My marriage is in jeopardy"
"We need to go to couple counselling......"
What do we have here! Puffy's daughter has come to support her old man! aww...
See how Puffy is more relaxed now that he knows someone's got his back? *lays head down*
This is what the tower looks like...Although it looks a little bit crowded underneath><'' Got to make some changes...
Changes made! See the difference?. That ramp looks much more user-friendly now....our piggies will show you in a moment!! They also enjoy the extra shade under the bridge, as shown by a certain white butt..
and then I added a beautiful orange hut, so they can have some privacy up there I bet they have an excellent view so up high!!
Now doesn't that look just perfecto! I feel so happy ^^ by the way...doesn't it kind of suck to realize that despite alllll the hard work, sweat and exhaustion you put into making these small changes for your pigs...and all along, you just had to get a few sprigs of parsley for a few dollars and they're head over heels happy already-_-
See the NEW difference? The 3rd floor wasn't too safe because I saw Puffy kind of lose his footing on the edge, as there is nothing blocking him and they could fall off and break their backs!. So I added a safety precaution
"ooo- la la!! What's this!!"
"Looks cozy and private to me!"
*hops in as mommy watches in eagerness=)*
"Oh boy, I could live up here forever....finally, a place to escape all the bullying from FIVE mean girls "
Been waiting for my order from Jen for a looonnngggg looonnnngggg time now!! It FINALLY arrived, can you imagine how THRILLED I am
I'm going to introduce the items to you one by one ^^...*rubs hands together in excitement*
For you piggy-pamper-novices out there...this is called a Bonding Pouch, you place your piggy inside while you watch TV or check your emails...they will be safely enclosed in the pouch...
This pouch has a mesh screen in the front, so you pigs can breathe, and you can see them
Who is this!!!! Who is that??
"It's ME, ma! Your favourite piggy.
aside from that, we have some gorgeous huts! This is a beautiful orange maple leaf/acorn patterned one. Err...by the looks of it, our customers are a tad skeptical!!
Shirley glares suspiciously back at me...
"Mom...is this one of those traps or something?"
Snoopy chimes in:
"Yeah! I think I've seen those things on TV!"
Even Puffy, who places his full trust in me..would rather prefer to sleep in his bed....
Minipuff isn't so sure about this big pink menacing looking thing at all!
"It looks like a monster's open MOUTH! RUUUnnnNNN!!"
After much reassuring from me....Shirley has decided to brave the winds and try it out!
*nervously awaiting her feedback...*
"hang on everyone! Checking the inside corners in case something is hiding back there!! It's very dark!"
"Come on in, everyone! It's cosy as a coccoon! ^^"
Look at my beautiful girl...who has been putting on weight lately
No, that's Jiffy, not Shirley. Yes, they do look very much alike
And Snoopy all stretched out
...turning onto her side
"hey Mom? Could we install a mini AC in this thing? It's a little stuffy for this weather! Otherwise...
Now let's see how our *stupid* boy is doing:P
er...gotta grab a poopy first!
"I can't see! I can't see!"
*shake shake shake*
"Ah! Much better! I think this thing is neat! and in such a serene spot too. It's like a quiet little retreat for me!!
*trot trot trot* See? He's not afraid of the stairs anymore
Okay we'll let him do his business....
Hello there! How pretty you are today, Snowy!!!! another customer!! ^^
Who's this? A BABY up there? This thing is baby proof...right....
"Poof! Enough with the huts already! Sheesh, you guys are so outdated.....the latest hype is the Corner Cabin"
" I think that my face looks soooo much better than my dad's butt!"
"and needless to say, my face is even MORE better than his face..."
"Blaa di bla di bla bla bla, yakking kids...."
"This compliments my creamy complextion, what d'ya think, Jen?"
"2's a crowd! Go find your mom!!"
oooo, look who's in a purty pink hut?
"I think I look nice in pink!"
now you see her....
and now you don't! *gasp* we didn't know the Corner Cabin has magical piggy-vanishing powers!!
Aww, our tired out mama stretches out. Lol, Snowy and her daughter Snoopy both have the stretch-front-legs-out gene
"Go away.....the camera should not have been invented! all that clicking and flashing!!!! they could have put their time to much better use...like setting up a Jenscustomcrafts factory...or growing more carrots...."
Here is the pretty pink hut and a square blue bed
So here are our mommies, aunts, big sistas and babies lining up to give Jen a big smooch XD
Shylie! Pay attention!! Look at the camera and thank Auntie JEN!!
and I tried to fit everyone into the screen...lol
*in a failed-attempted unison voice...*
"Thank you Auntie Jen! and Uncle Jason..."
oh, and my brother got addicted to Toy Story and I bought him stickers...which he didn't give a crap about. So here they are!!
And look what other decorations I added?. We LOVE Mario!!
close up.....*hums Super Mario Bros music....*
and my Paddington Bear Collection! Well...not much of a collection....BUT, did you know that the author of Paddington Bear, Michael Bond, is also the author of one of most famous guinea pig in print: Olga da Polga? Go check her out!! She's an abby, I think.
I also decorated the wall with my paintings.... Can you spot...Puffy?
Momo's pigs???? MOJO?!, and of course...
Fairy and her sisters, Marigold and Mariella....
Puffy wants to be a part of the wall too!
Whooo! It's been a tiring day! When the sun began to set...our piggies enjoyed in lovely meal of corn husks, corn, cucumber and lettuce in the afternoon sunshine....
What SPOILED SPOILED pigs
Shylie munching on a cucumber...
Look at how lovely the sunshine is....wanna live in there!
As you can see...the babies now actively join in for veggie time.
They catch on fast!!
Feisty little eaters...
Here is PJ, being his typical super curious self, I hooked the fiddlesticks to his cage and he's been smelling, sniffing, licking, biting, chewing and circling this thing for a whole 5 minutes!
