This photo beautifully summarises the difference between my two boys. Do your piggies take the passive spud approach of giving you 'the look' until you give in to an overwhelming guilt. Or the more aggressive Gundham approach of bar chewing and climbing the bars until you sacrifice your precious pellets or fear the consequences.

P.s both work I can't resist either.

Posh and Ginger will wheek and stand up at the bars looking gorgeous and starved - guilt
Little Hector will bite the bars till he has your attention then run around wheeking, he is very demanding and determined - fear, just won’t get any peace until I give in

All three of my girls are different! Doris wheeks on occasion but her speciality is climbing the bars no doubt! Mabel just gives me THAT look if you know what i mean😂. And baby Olive wheeks at the top of her lungs the minute she hears the backdoor open!

Peanut gives me the guilt trip, licks the bars very gently. Nugget just looks at me in a cute way. The other four bite the bars, rattle the cage and squeak loudly.

If they are in the hutch, Betsy teeth chatters and bites the bars, Patsy gives me the "I'm starving" look then shrieks (she has only just started to do this :) ) and Meg either licks the bars or shrieks. All three of them patrol up and down popcorning their little popcorns. If they are in the run they come running up to the bars and mainly guilt me into giving them food by looking cute and starving as if they never get fed! If they hear a bag rustle they all sound as if they are being murdered! 😂
