Me and Bhindi is mates now!
Less than a week ago he was visiting
me in my Big Pen and had an "event"
where he fell over on his side like a
stroke or something...also, he gets tired
very easily, perhaps because he is the size
of a dinosaurus Rex! But the strangest thing
of all is that he's gone mostly mute!
And nobody knows why...
He still lurves being petted and scrunchied
by mom and rolls over and takes his back
foot and loves to be tickled but he stopped
purring loud and lustrous, just a soft sound
comes outta him...now and then.
Mom doesn't expect the vet to have a clue,
so she did the only thing that has ever
really healed us piggies ever and that
is LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
She connected his Way-Fun Habitat with
my Way-Big Piggie Pen because his
Habitat has two doors, just to see how
we would get along. We got along great
on Runabouts, but what about as
room-mates? The first few nights she
put Bhindi back into his Habitat
just while she slept until she had watched
us enough to see how much I
love bounding through all his play toys,
and sleeping his his Magic Red Castle,
while he enjoys all my space to stretch out
PLUS having me with him!
Imagine: Peter the Great, with
double the play-space
PLUS I STILL GETS MY RUNABOUTS WITH VINNY AND WITH BHINDI when he's up to it!
YumYum and Vinny sleep next to each
other through the bars of their Habitats
but YumYum has made it CLEAR THAT
HE ALONE RULES!
(We got that.) It's all good.
Now mom just wants me to quit
riding Bhindi like a horse or like
the Space Shuttle on the Boeing plane
but I loves it cuz it's FUN!
And he doesn't seem to mind.
FINE! Maybe he minds.
Either way, we're mates and we
share everything, including our
fresh, organic romaine lettuce
and bedtime stories about
GuineaVampires AND GuineaZombies
tells us in vivid detail before sleepily
closing his eyes and retiring into his
soft, square ferret house for the night
while we quake with trepidation about
the GuineaVampires and Zombies:
(Mom said WE'RE the GZombs and Vamps
but that was just her having a migraine,
