Of course not. Except for the 3am riots, the 7am breakfast time, the 1pm Olympics, the 5pm squabbles over where the furniture belongs, and the midnight raves. Oh, and

Pretty sure if anyone actually heard my enthusiasm for these vocal and demanding little creatures in the Tesco café this morning, they're pretty sure I'm exaggerating. I didn't even get to cover half of it :))

So blooming gorgeous :love: :love:
Well my little Jasper got moved today, in the ‘zoo room’, sorry living room! :mal:
Me worrying about silent pigs, god did that start a racket! Luigi bar biting and a three piggy chorus (yay!) when I got back from the shop but it’s going to be strange in my bedroom tonight without my Jaspy! Makes a bloody right old noise for a dwarf pig, will miss it I think! Years of noisy chins and now a nutty pig!

We love it really me thinks! :luv::D (Doesn’t mean we can’t moan though eh Luigi you pain in the butt!)

I sleep better with background noise (not much, but some) and I used to sleep in whatever room I had them in. I can't count the amount of times I must've groaned "Comet shut up" in the early hours because it was always him. "Comet it's 3am you're not getting fed." "Comet stop trying to kick Blitzen out of the hidey." "Comet stop trying to move a hidey Blitzen's asleep in." "For gods sake Comet whatever it is, stop doing it."

Sounds very similar to me and the chinmonsters! :)) I couldn’t sleep years ago without silence, soon changed when those freaks moved in, didn’t really have a choice! :)) Thankfully the fuzzy fellow wasn’t quite as bad but it was nice after nearly a year of not much! Stoopid brain, make your mind up!XD

You’ve all forgotten when you breathe in the room they’re in 🙄 if they feel your presence that is it! I do miss it but I’m glad I can eat crisps without having them standing at the bars looking at me. 😭

When I got home today there was wheeking when someone rustled human food ( cue 'the hoomans are eating and were not?! How dare they! I'm calling the RSPCA!' :)) )
, there was wheeking when I literally walked past their cage, wheeking and following me up and down the cage when I was putting hideys out for floor time and wheeking when i was actually getting thier veggies ready! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Mine have now found a new reason to wheek. When i listen to my friends blog, he happens to be the one who boards them when we are away. They go mad when they hear his voice, this also tells me that he probably spoils them. :roll:

I can now add wheeking hopefully when they hear the fridge open even though they've just been fed (the promise me they haven't been fed and I must do so immediately). The fridge door is also really loud for some reason so there's no hope of ever doing it without them noticing! 🤣

Oh no, they’ve got you hooked, quick run! It only ends badly with these piggles, they’re trouble! :)):love:

Oh! Did you all know that rustling envelopes can sound like rustling bags? Comet taught me that. Although he also tried telling me that strawberries were the spawn of the devil, so maybe I should take it with a pinch of salt? The advice I mean, not the strawberries.

Plus there's nothing quite so heart-attack inducing as drifting off to sleep listening to a slow growly rumble only to hear a crash and lots of very high pitched wheeking. It's very hard to tell the difference between angry wheeking and "hell yes this is fun" wheeking when you're half asleep :)) Also....the dangers of plastic bags. I usually bought small bags of herbs for them and I made the mistake of opening the bag in front of them. Sure they enjoyed their food until I tried to stand up with a plastic bag in my pocket... :doh:

In our house getting out a cutting board also counts as a reason to wheek, becasue the only time we would do that is to prepare veggies for the piggies.
Plus opening the back door, becasue clearly we only go into the garden to cut grass or set up for lawn time.
Plus my new winter bike jacket apparently sounds like a bag of lettuce being opened - it's going to be a long and wheeky Winter.

"No, you can't eat an envelope." "No, you're not getting my orange juice." "It's strawberries. You despise strawberries." "No, it really isn't blueberries and no, you can't check the container just to be sure." "Guys I've only come home from shopping. Ignore the bags." "I saw ig...oh sod it. Fine. Here. Have a melon finger." "Stop trying to murder the water bottle." "It's just an innocent water bottle...could you at least kill it quietly?"

A guy came to service my boiler and thought I'd locked children in my bedroom :xd:
