The Boar Brothers
There has been some recent complaints from our readers that there is too much spotlight on Puffy!! What about the other pigs??
Sorry, it's just that its hard not to swoon at his beautiful locks. and that puffy little face! and that puffy little butt! and those big dangly balls that's like a bushel of apples when he walks!!
But anyway, I am going to make an effort from now on to take more pics of everyone. So we get a lot of photos of Puffy and his ladies, and Jiffy and his ladies, but we have forgotten out boar pair!! living downstairs!!
Remember that Buggy and PJ have been put together for almost a year now! They make very good buddies. I often see them snuggled together in the same enclosed space, or both upstairs eating hay.
Here. they are both standing on the stairs, huddling together, how cute, lol
Buggy is the dominant boar, sometimes when he smells the cage full of ladies upstairs, he will become aroused and start h*mping pooy PJ. Sometimes PJ shakes his roomie off, but most of the time he'll just sit there obediently until you find a um...white *lump* on his beautiful fur. Poor PJ. But I think he is used to it
I should also mention that PJ is a very cheeky pig! The other day I put a fan on top of a chair in front of their cage, and thought nothing more of it. Later on when I walked by, I saw a flash of creamy fur zoom past, and I was like was that outside the cage?? I could not believe it. Then I realized that PJ had stretched wayyyy out of the cage and reached the chair, which was a good 20 cm away, and then he hopped onto the chair, then the floor......I make absolute sure that the chair or anything else is out of reach....
Hi Buggy! Buggy is the boss, although he's much more docile and less adventurous than PJ.
PJ being his curious self. I didn't use to socialize with PJ much before, because he is the most jumpy of our pigs and will run at the slightest movement. But what makes him so adorable is that once he runs away and hide in fear, his curiously will always get the better of him and he'll pop his head out and have a look just seconds later, lol
PJ deciding to go up?
He loves leaning against the side/edge of the cage and just looking up at you with a friendly, curious smile. But as soon as you reach your hand out to pat him, he'll be gone in a flash O_o
Hi PJ....Buggy is wondering what's so interesting down there?
yummmm yum yum yum
PJ got a mouthful, Buggy still streettcchinnnggg
This is good workout for them. Look at their little paws, haha
By the way...PJ does not have red eyes, that is just my camera.
Buggy and PJ's cage is the smallest out of my 3 cages, although it is spacious enough for them, I think. It does get a little crowded on the second floor sometimes, specially when there is water, hay, pellets and fresh veggies to fight over
Hello! What's up Curious?
Ohhh, he wants a chin scritch XD
Lol, that's the spot
Don't forget the top of the headd...
And behind the ears...
Then on the Shoulders
More on the head!! awww
See? It's amazing how much you notice about him once you make an effort.
Feeding time in this house is very exciting indeed. Our pigs have quickly picked up the familiar sound of the rustling hay bag, the clinky opening of the food jars, and best of all....the irresistable scent of PARSLEY!!!!
Let's look at a typical day when the pigs demonstrate their high expectations
"Yo! Why me food bowl empty??"
"Two strands of hay? Who do you think I am lady?"
*puts on scariest Puffy face...*
this is the scariest face Puffy is capable of. Oooo...those teeth look scary
Okay that wasn't scary enough, he's going to give it another try. Here we go:
"ROOARRR!! I WANT MY PELLETS! "
*Silence. Then a baby cries somewhere faraway...*
lol, this is seriously the scariest he can get
Puffy is disappointed to find that there still isn't any pellets, even after his series of horrifying facial expressions....
Okay since scary face didn't work, let's try the begging-cute-irresistable face
"Please purrty please, ma?"
"Look! look at me, all cute and frail and weak...I've got white hairs!"
Puffy lifts his head as high up as possible to show his eagerness
Now he pops his head out over the coroplast.
"What does a piggy got to do to get some food around here???!!"
Puffy feeling defeated
Snowy and Shylie are getting anxious about that empty food bowl too. Snowy looks questioningly up at me
Shylie doesn't even have the energy to move.
Munch some hay for now
And look at the residents on the other side! Shirley, Snoopy, and Jiffy coming to get in line
What do you little expectant furry faces want? *looks cluelessly back at them* What? what do you want?
This is when I refilled their bowls and I placed it on the second floor, where it always is. Do you see Shirley jumping up to the secod floor on the left side of the photo? She's really quick! She knows just where the food is gonna be. Snoopy and Jiffy must be so hungry they forgot where the food bowl always is...
Snoopy is wondering whetehr she should check the second floor?
and Jiffy is thinking where did Shirley go?
There's Shirley! Enjoying the feast all to herself. She's trying to eat as much as she could before her roomies ambush her food...
Snoopy and Jiffy still looking stupidly back at me, wondering where the food is. They can smell it!
Shirley is thinking
"Na nana BOO BOO, they are so dumb! I'm going to finish their halves too!"
Snoopy still hesitating whether to risk wasting energy going upstairs. Just in case there's no food up there either....
"Mom? where da food??"
Oh no! Jiffy is so hungry and hurt that we are starving him, he is crying!! do you see poor Jiffy wiping his tears? And Snoopy is coming over to comfort her little hubby....
Here is Buggy and PJ enjoying their share.
All this while, Puffy is still waiting patiently for his food..
"Ma? Who's coming over for dinner?"
"Can I get my dinner now? I've been screaming for hours!! This is animal cruelty!!"
"WE WANT FOOD! WE WANT FOOD!!"
ahhh, at last!
This afternoon, I threw a carrot in and observed their reactions. Snowy being her usual food-alert self, comes over right away! Puffy seems more content sleeping instead. And Shylie is nowhere in site!
Snowy closing in...
Shylie hears that crunching munching sound, and joins Snowy. And where is Puffy?
There's our little boy! Tilting his head to get a bite
The girls think he must be out of his mind---who would walk away from carrot?!!
