September Calendar piggies: Mr Kiss Kiss, Weasel, Mirabella, Amelia biscuit & Maisey

Hello all, its Mr Kiss Kiss pigcipant of the September calendar pigture.

Sorry the post is late, whee have just come back off holiday from our local rodentologist.

I'm the boss of my herd and its a hard job looking after the girls. Whee are all rescue pigs from Windwhistle Warren in Gloucestershire where we used to live. We don't know how old we are but that doesn't bother us.

Its been a difficult year with the passing of the Weasel and Mirabella but we do our best. I'm now a dental pig, requiring regular work with rodentologists trained by the Cambridge Cavy Trust. I wouldn't be here without them, but still wriggle when I go to see them. I'm doing better now and starting to eat on my own again. Amelia Biscuit is still the behemoth of the group, stealing all the food and best places to sleep. Maisey is the more serious pig, and the biggest lover of grass.

We are sad now that Summer's over and there will be no more grass until next year. The picture shows us celebrating the bringing of the cattle in from the Summer mountains for the winter, celebrated in alpine countries.

Piggie kisses to all,

Mr Kiss Kiss, Amelia Biscuit and Maisey.

In about 3 months it will be the end of the year again. We could do a Calendar again for 2014.
So far we usually gathered about 150 euros to donate to a piggy shelter...

What do you think: Should we make another calendar? Would you contribute your pigture? Would your slave buy one?

Having a Laugh

Well you may have noticed that since we have started moderating all comments the spam on the blog has practically disappeared the spammers are however alive and well, as we were clearing the spam folder this morning we found this comment

Do you have a spam issue on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have developed some nice methods and we are looking to trade methods with other folks

We had to laugh, posting a spam comment about dealing with spam we give them 10 out of 10 for creative thinking.

After we had laughed and decided to share with you, we promptly deleted it.

Piggy Spotting

While pursuing one of her favourite hobbies (reading) Mummy found this mention of a guinea pig

"Her name was Miss Prosser and she had untidy brown hair and reminded me of Tufty, my guinea pig"

This mention was found in Clouds Among the Stars by Victoria Clayton, sadly it looks like it may be the only mention

So has anyone else spotted a piggy hiding out anywhere unusual

This Little Piggy

We don't know if this little nursery rhyme is known outside of the UK. We are sure that it was written about pink oinky pigs but guineas are a good substitute. We had to cheat with the line about roast beef as Slave is a vegetarian and we used a packet of veg based slices instead.

This little piggy went to market
This little piggy stayed home

This little piggy had roast beef
This little piggy had none
And this little piggy went wheek, wheek, wheek all the way home

Starring Agents Gemini, Plantagenet, Minty, Firenze and Mystery aka Susie, Bosworth, Polo, Florence and Otto Piggyfriend. No piggies were harmed in the production of these pigtures. Agent Minty did not eat the packet of Quorn or even the carrot as he is a rarity at Piggyfriends in that he does not like them.

Incredible Reversing Pig

We wish we could get a video of this to show you but so far we have been unsuccessful

Iron Hamster has a special agent skill and that is the ability to run backwards away from human hands faster than he can run forwards.

The humans are getting used to this technique now but we thought it was worth a mention

Any of you run backwards?
