Enormous box!

Just given Current Bun an enormous box to play with. Am about to go out shopping - do you think he'll be playing castles in it when I get back?

Pigs are looking at it enviously - they are not allowed to play in it until we get home. Envy

I give my boars a box of hay in their indoor cage (they share nicely now unlike last winter).
GP2 wakes us up at 3am ,channeling his inner Lawrence Llweyellan-Bowen (sp) by turning the carefully cut (squared) doorway into a Gothic Arch.

Prentencious Much? Grin

Current Bun will raspberry at the pigs and they will sulk almightily. You'll have a riot on your hands when you get back.

Current bun was useless and completely unimaginative. When we returned he was sitting next to the box. There was no sign of nibbling - gothic or otherwise!

Pigs were far more imaginative and used it as a house. They redesigned my doorways and started installing some windows. Scruffypig threw his parsley out of the back door - we think he was making a garden.

Another point to the guineas in the GUINEA-PIGS V RABBITS contest Grin

(Not that there ever was a contest. I mean guineas win, paws down)

70 - have to stick up for Current Bun - He had already had a busy day of squeezing himself under the sofa (he is too large and has to crawl on his belly) and emerging, with difficulty, from under a cupboard (which is an even smaller gap for him). Though he did rather spoil this 'achievement' by turning round and trying to squeeze back under the cupboard, even though he knew he couldn't fit properly. He had to abandon this attempt and reverse himself out, practically lying on his side to flatten himself enough to escape. Good job he did, the cupboard is quite heavy and I don't think the pigs could have moved it on their own Grin
