Judgey Pants will be hoisted Grin

I'm anticipating there will be fireworks galore tonight/Saturday/Sunday/Monday...............

So, they are going up to DD room. (I haven't cleared them a space in the dining room.) DS room is too hot for them.

I've given DD warning (and I'll be having a stern word with the rodenty types) that they will stay in their bed (with hay and fleeces) not in DD bed.

(I have told her about the time I "punched my guinea-pig in the face" . I didn't punch him, I shoved him. He wasn't hurt. I was having a nightmare)
Not a court in the land would convict me. Blush

Awww, I love sleeping in the same room as the pigs. Been on the sofa (aka my sick bed) for a few nights and its comforting to hear them snuffling around.

Have you got your divide up or are you seeing how they go?

They are noisy little monsters at night aren't they?
DD is so excited to have them in her room, bless her.

I don't think I'd like to be with the pigs if I was ill, with their pooh eating habits and GP2s 'gas'. (I've had a bleurgh week as well.Not as bad as some of the MNetters. Was sick on Monday night/early Tues and had a gripey cramp stomach and headache since then. Sad

We're going for broke -no divider this time. They've got a fleece at one end, a box of hay at the other ,a bowl of vegetables and their cat pellets on the floor. Hopefully the effort of walking on them will knacker the boys before they think about squabbling.They've been sharing a hay trug sometimes (even though they've got 2 trugs and a haybox full of hay + wooden house and willow house.But that's because they choose to.). Might be a bit more aggro in an enforced space.
And I'm going to cover the cage like a stroppy sweary parrot! Grin

ours are indoors already. They are in our backroom/dining room , with all the washing on the maids...not Homes and Gardens here I'm afraid.
DD has just walked in cue...I'm starving wheeks from Big Pig

I bought mine in a couple of weeks ago -getting a bit cold

but my god I had forgotten how much they stink!

been out and bought the cat litter today Grin

BonkeyMollocks · 02/11/2012 18:16

My two are quiet, all I here is hay crunching and the odd snuffle :)
My two don't produce gas when I am in the room, just for dh Wink .

I was up for 5 bloody hours in the bathroom weds night :( Bloody awful whatever it is going round!

I'm using a wood pellet cat litter from The Range at the moment ( huge yellow bag, suitable for furries)

GP1 goes up to DD room to play and he's a gentleman, never wees in her bedroom. I thought the poor little soul will be cross legged by morning but no- first thing he did was drop his 'nads into the litter and mark his territory Grin

They're being a tiny bit snipey- but they could well be like this in the Pighouse, we don't know.
They'll sort themselves (or DD will smack their bums -metaphorically- and send them to their corners Wink )
