Wedgwood's Fourth

According to Wedgwood's adoption paperwork, she turns four today.  She's officially a mature adult guinea pig.


I'm not sure any pig who regularly gets called "Pee-Face" can be classified as a grownup.

She's good and she's bad.  She's healthy and chubby.  She whines more often than she wheeks.  We love that pointy nose.  I can't say she's mellowed at all; however she has most definitely adapted to life in this household.  She uses everything in the cage, and even goes off exploring down to the floor via the ramp.  The only thing she avoids is the hammock - and I'm not sure why.  Wedgie has the unfortunate habit of thinking the last of any food belongs solely to her, and will bite Boadicea if she thinks Boadi's begging will result in Boadi getting treats before her.  As I said - I'd hardly label her as mature.

But she's wonderful at being handled and never really complains about being picked up.  Which is often.  Usually as a result of the bad behavior listed above.  Although she'll never become a real lap pig, she's a lot more comfortable just hanging out than many of my prior rodents.  She's a lot of fun.

Happy Birthday, Wedgwood.  You may have a prickly attitude towards others of your kind, but you've been an entertaining and lovable addition to our family.
