YY to the house being noisier. My dad asked me if I'd brought them in yet "they'll be scared" he said. Though in the Pighouse the doors and windows are sealed, they have a haybox full to the roof with hay. Indoors, (GP3 was in last winter with GP1) the girls will stride about judgily and do a "what's this what's this " at the fleece (in a vain attempt to keep them cosy and comfy).
And they will be right next to DH and I with no door on their room so I'll be able to hear them mithering bless them
Mine don't bother about fireworks. We live very close to a place which has a huge display so it gets very loud here. The pigs sleep through every noise that isn't the fridge. Current Bun spent the evening in the conservatory where he could see and hear the fireworks but slept on his chair instead. He woke us all up later, banging his feet because an owl flew overhead.
Returned our girls to their garden home this morning...what a performance.
We'd had the Piggie pod on DD's windowsill initially with woodshavings and hay, which made a mess outside the cage, so swapped the other day for towels & fleeces. Unfortunately I massively underestimated how much wee they produce and sorting them out this morning was utterly grim.
Had to put them in the (empty) bath to keep them contained, chuck the towels etc, brush out the pod then dismantle it to get it downstairs. Cleaned, disinfected it and put in fresh shavings & hay, fresh & dried food and water. Then we bathed and blow dried them, gave them some sliced grapes as a treat and popped them back outside with a hot water bottle.
They are NOT coming in next year unless I can get a proper, cheap indoor cage!
Of course this evening we've not only had the loudest and closest fireworks all week, but also a raging thunderstorm!
