We put Mu-Xi to sleep

She wasn’t getting enough food, wasn’t getting enough water, having difficulty swallowing what she would chew, was jerking around in pain when trying to lay down to fall asleep so instead she laid in a puffy little ball, allowed me to pet her in the pig pen and pick her up without a fight… She […]

old lady Mu-Xi Mu

I’ve been meaning to update but my heart isn’t in it. Mu Mu has been having a difficult time. Noticed Wednesday last week that she wasn’t eating her cucumber. I had seen her nibbling about two days before, but not fully eating. So this went on until a very early appointment Thursday morning at a […]

this little guinea pig family has a lot of character

Yes. So ever since Lily moved in and popped out her daughters, Mu-Xi Mu has come out of her shell just a little. She’s turning 6 next year so I don’t expect too much out of her. But Lily’s kids are crazy. Potsticker is very food motivated and gathers mom and her sisters to follow […]

It’s October. We can’t have the windows open.

Tommy Gargoyle has been on Prozac for about two months now for his spraying issues and anxiety. He’s doing well and I haven’t seen him mark anything personally in quite some time. However, our youngest male cat Stewart is a piss machine. If we have the windows open he’s spraying like five times a day […]

It’s getting better

I think I’m done updating the Juvenile Weights of the guinea pigs. They are full grown, except for Potsticker, who seems to grow out rather than up. She is almost 1000 grams. Her auntie Mu-Xi is 1010 grams. Stewart is eating the new food without being too skittish about it now. Stewart got sprayed in […]

well at least they are growing

Which is a positive for the piggies and a negative for TOMMY GARGOYLE. Potsticker has been over 900 grams for a few weeks now, with the other two kids about to catch up if you’ve been watching my updates on the Juvenile’s Weight. They are mostly grown by the time they reach 900 grams and […]

Happy September

We’re still waiting to get Chai back from Skulls Unlimited, after sending her in back in February. They gave me an update over a week ago. Still not home yet. Mu-Xi goes in for spay surgery tomorrow morning and I’m taking the day off work. Nervous. Tommy was being an ass to everyone today. Stewart […]

Lily and Mu-Xi

They are actually getting along much better than they were after the buddy baths. Sometimes Lily pecks at Mu-Xi to get out of her way, because she is an ever-expanding butt, but they can be seen in the litterbox under the hay side by side. They didn’t have any squabbles when I was cleaning the […]
