Cannoli was the enthusiastic one. Boadicea has no one to hassle, no one to follow around on the floor, no one to go searching for. So she loafs a lot, having no reason to go out on her own. It's not bad, but it's not ideal. She's not pining, which is good. She is more timid, which is surprising. I didn't think Noli had that effect on Boadi.
Boadi's eating enough to keep up her girly figure, although it's a fraction of the food I had been putting in the cage. I honestly thought with Boadicea's size she'd been eating the majority of the food of the two pigs. But it turns out she needs very little to keep up her weight. I often find leftover pellets in the bowl when it's time to add more. She gets more excited over fresh hay and has even begun wheeking for morning greens.
Last week I begun the rounds of Petfinder.com searches. I made the mistake of searching for guinea pigs on craigslist - it makes me so sad and angry seeing these single 6-month-old pigs that people have lost interest in. Bah.
My heart really isn't in the search. I don't want to face introductions to a diva like Boadicea. Besides, my schedule is crazy right now, so it's going to be hard to find a few clear days to deal piggy politics. We'll just have to wait and see what turns up.
