Pen and Goods

The pig pen is a huge hit. About three times the size of their regular box, it gives the pigs tons of room to run around.
They were very nervous in it at first, but now, they are very comfortable.
They run around for ages, chasing each other, bouncing off walls, and then they nap.
It makes me happy, it makes them happy.
It's a good life.

I also went out today to bloody walmart to get the pigs some goods.
New litter. Hay. Some treats. More food (cheaper = good).
AND, I got TWO cat brushes. Walter needs the brushing.
And so he and I sat together and I brushed him.
He LOVED it. That pig has never been so calm sitting on my lap. He was in heaven. I got a few pleasant (I assume) squeaks out of him.
Two different brushes we tried - a massaging one, and one that looks like a people hair brush. Both a big hit.
Henry gets it next.
I think he will also enjoy.

1.5ish weeks with the pigs.
They seem content.

Today I made them a larger play area so they can have more freedom. A pig pen, if you will.
After running around and peeing all over, they are now exhausted and each sleeping in their respective huts. Walter chose orange, Henry got yellow by default.

I also knit them a jute toy. Stuffed with stuff they can chew on (decomposable plant pots).
Very successful this toy. We'll need another. They do not share as well as I would like.

Walter ran around the place, bumping into the small pots. I think he's mostly blind. Henry followed, and tasted absolutely everything he could. He is particularly fond of the plastic that their new huts are made out of.

Blogging about pigs. I'm sure it will catch on. Ha.
