She's still very talkative - mostly whining, but occasionally there's some genuine wheeking in the morning. Wedg is far more adventurous with food than Boadi ever was. Boadi had to check with Cannoli every time I introduced new food. She'd only eat it if Cannoli was eating it. Wedgie has no such qualms. If it's in reach, she'll eat it. Her weight reflects that! She is a meaty rodent.
Boadicea continues to give lessons on how to chill. If Wedgie is napping while I walk by the cage, she barely looks up at me - even if she's sleeping in the open on the third floor. She has a tendency to dart of something startles her on the floor. However, if Boadicea isn't running as well, Wedgie will stop after a few steps, turn around, and head back to whatever she was doing.
I love picking her up and holding her. She's not as loafy and squeezable as Boadi, but she's calm and relaxed. She eventually gets worked up because she hears Boadi in the cage... and what is that pig doing without my supervision!?!? Drinking water? No! Put me back! I need to make sure she's doing it right.
Yeah. So she's a little neurotic.
I'm looking forward to seeing more of her personality emerge now that she's acclimated to our routine.
