Just thought I would share this because I thought it was funny.
Normally when people see the guinea cage they think it is eccentric and I'm a wally. But both the man who came to see me last night and one of the women tonight said they have guinea pigs as well. I don't normally meet other people who have piggies so I just thought it was funny that everyone who I met over the last few days has them.
I think my pigs could sense they were Cavy Slaves because normally they hide from new people, but on both these occasions they got excited and wheeky.
Maybe we all have a special "piggy gland" in our brain that is dormant in normal people. :))

PS: I'm not saying that everyone who has piggies is nuts or works with people who are nuts. But it is a possibility. :))

Made me smile :)) Was just wondering the other day if there was a link between the two...

Being close to craziness and being close to pigs (to paraphrase Katie Melua!)

Maybe one day they'll take over (well they already have at my house).
I think it should be compulsary to own a guinea pig lol they just make you feel happier (sounds daft) they have a calming affect on you, I know that when I'm in a foul mood I'll go up the garden and play with the piggies and 10 mins later I'm fine (which probably says more about me than them lol).

I would also subscribe to this theory, everyone else I know or meet at the vets for example, that has Piggles, is also at least slightly eccentric. Most are like me, as Mad as a Fish! Hoorah! X x
