on a friend's Facebook page to describe the adoption day for one of their pets. Love that! So - today is the first anniversary of adopting Cannoli.
Cannoli was a terrific find. We worried about obtaining a friend for Pinniped, since she had been such a bully to Willow (and attempted to bully Bertie). I had been told that Cannoli was accustomed to living with
several sows, and was likely a good match. What an understatement!
They immediately hit it off. A year later, they are still very happy together.
Her laid back attitude is why she gets along so well with Pinniped. Pinni will strut her stuff and assert her dominance; Cannoli remains unfazed then goes off and does her own thing. It's pretty funny to watch. Noli doesn't seem to care about her social status - she gets fed regardless, so life is good.
She's still quite timid when anyone comes by the cage. Which is so silly for a guinea pig that frantically calls attention to herself several times a day (she's a bottomless pit). Cannoli is such a wheeky pig! Yet she always runs and hides. Once she's caught, Noli seems happy enough to be held and snuggled. She's a great lap pig (she's peed on my only once). What an odd mix of contradictions.
Happy Gotcha Day, my roly-poly Noli!
