J Is For Jumping

Welcome to a very cold day, here in Virginia. Is it cold where you live? It seems like Spring just can’t make up its mind. Today, we celebrate the letter “J” and “J” is for “Jumping”.That’s right, I said jumping. We didn’t know the piggies could jump until we had one of them on a chair and all of a sudden, it was on the floor. I asked Anna if she had put it on the floor and she said she hadn’t. I knew I had not, so it must have jumped down. Soon after, it happened again.
Since then, piggies have appeared on the floor after we set them on the couch, upstairs. Actually, I believe it was the same one-Nibbles. He wants to see the girls.
I have actually witnessed the guinea pigs jumping-over chair legs, over ties that we used to make one of the cages (and they stick out on the front of the cage, so piggies running around the room and going around the cages sometimes jump over the cable ties. Even Herbie can do it now.
What’s funny is that I have read on guinea pig websites that they cannot jump. They haven’t seen my piggies! I have seen some guinea pigs on youtube jumping over obstacles in an obstacle course. I would love to make one but have not figured out how. Any ideas?
Also, I will have to make some changes to some of my posts, that I was trying to put videos on or the video was there and is not there any longer. I apologize for the problems.
Join me tomorrow and find out what piggies do that humans do, too, as a greeting-(and it starts with the letter “K”).


E Is For Exercise

Guinea pigs need regular exercise, just like other animals, and I let them out of the cage to run around. The problem is, I have to clean the carpet soon after. I haven’t managed to train them to go to the bathroom only in their cage.
Nibbles, while still in the same cage with Layla, used to run laps, galloping up and down a short hall off of the playroom. Now, he just goes to Layla’s cage and tries to woo her. He does end up wandering around some. The others love to run around on the floor. I can only have girls out or boys out because they will mate if I have them out together. That’s OK, though.
Below is a video of Layla and Taylor, when she was just a few months old, running around the room. Taylor is galloping and jumping in some of it. She is squeaking because she is having fun.
I apologize beforehand, I did not think to clean the cages before filming this video, so you might see guinea pig droppings around. Anyway, here we go.
