Friday Cat Blogging

Funny thing happened last week, Beorn adopted two guinea pigs. He claims it was just to save them from the SPCA, but I think he's just a softy. The pigs are funny and in combo with the cats they are really funny! They make hilarious noises, including funny purring sounds and loud squealing sounds. If you rustle a plastic bag around them they get very excited because they think they are getting salad. This afternoon while I was trying to grade papers, the princess got up on the fish tank, trying to get into the bag of fish food. For some reason she is convinced that the fish food is actually a giant bag of kitty treats. So she's chewing on the bag, which makes the pigs utter loud noises."Sqeeeeeee, Sqeeeee, Sqeeeeee!" This means I have to get the cat a treat and give the pigs some salad. Later I sit down in front of the computer with a salad. What do I hear? "Sqeeeeeee, Sqeeeee, Sqeeeeee!!! Can't I even have salad in peace???

Too cute!

I knew you guys were going to keep the guinea pigs when you renamed them.

are you sure the cats aren't plotting some kind of assassination attempt?

I love Pinnie Gigs (what I called them when I was young)! Have fun with them.

I grew up having guinea pigs as pets and love them dearly. They are terrific pets, great fun and very personable, and yes they get excited about salad, and vegetables. We should adopt the guinea pig perspective and all squeal with delight about salad and vegetables.

Thanks for the note about my jade. My mom always had a jade plant, and I know someone with one that is 30 years old, but I never saw this. I am glad to be doing something right with it. It's SO beautiful!

I agree kate, it's changed my attitude towards salad. :)
