They are funny Posh really loves a tunnel and happily spends most of day lazying away. Ginger on the other hand spends her time between tunnel or step stool, she‘s a very busy lady that can’t quite make her mind up which she prefers. Step stool or tunnel, tunnel or step stool 🤔 now I’ve put in a cuddle cup! That’s upset the Apple cart!
Poor thing, you’re just confusing her now! 🤣

Aw how cute!:love: I knew you had a Silver. Fox and a black Piggy but didn't know you had a black piggy with a gold go faster stripe or a brown piggie. Maybe it's me not being very observant!:doh:

I’ve weighed them this morning and happy to report that the boys are pretty much back to their ‘usual’ weight. I was previously worried because they were consistently losing weight at each weigh-in. No more than 50g a week but it was a steady decline. Since the last weigh in they’ve been putting it back on. I don’t know if they’ve been eating more hay or what. But in any case I’m happy. For anyone interested, weights are as below. Toffee and Fudge are almost 3, while Coco and Chanel are almost 2.

Those are some healthy chunky guinea pig weights! All my piggies are age 2 to 4 and fall in the 1000g to 1300g range, except little skinny pig Tallulah who is younger and only weighs 850g, she has a good heft but is just small :)

They are good weights!
Mine are very similar weights 1307 (popcorn) and 1250 (dexter) as of yesterday. Pops is usually more in the region of 1330-1350 but his hormonal displays of late might be considered strenuous exercise hence his more recent small weight losses - he’s now concentrating on more eating and less annoying dex now which is good!

Thank goodness for that! I’m sure Dex is glad about that and hopefully Pop is all calm now.

The crew had some grass on Sunday. They seem to have stopped being picky about the grass. They didn’t used to eat the large bladed ones when I’d cut some for them 🤨 piggies put paid to the saying ‘beggars can’t be choosers’!

The pigs had some floor time while I cleaned them out. Since then, they’ve all been alternating their naps between their hides and the open. Even the girls and including my most skittish but strong-headed Chanel! She seems to have found her little corner where she can rest her head on a bit of rolled up math mat 🥰
