Oh, pigs! Haha I have two of my own. They have such silly personalities sometimes. I think a lot of times they have the mentality that it's all about them. I'm one of those pig fanatics that just give in and spoil them X3
Heh, I understand what you mean w/ your piggies. I don't have guinea pigs, but my rats act pretty darn similar. They'll go through phases where I'll walk by my room and see them both at the bars, and when I walk up to them, they'll jump up on and climb the bars, shove each other out of the way, smash their faces against the bars, etc. xDAnd then when I don't hold them or give them treats, one usually end up getting bored and going back to bed and the other just lays on one of the platforms looking all depressed. xD
The saddest thing is right after I give them food and they ATTACK it(And I feed them everyday) and then proceed to, after they've hid all the food, act like they haven't eaten in months or something. xD Agh, these silly rats..
I've had gerbils, hamsters, had mice for a little bit(because I bought multiple mice to feed my ball python), and rats. Out of all of them, rats are DEFINITELY my favourite. They are so smart, loving and adorable <3 This is my second pair of rats. I was definitely upset when my first rats died, and after them I decided that I had wanted to just stick with keeping reptiles, but after awhile, I wanted to have more rats. So I convinced my parents to let me get more. The last two I had were both female, now I have one male(got him neutered) and one female. I'm doing things a lot differently with these rats, so hopefully they'll live longer than my last two!
Yeah, I taught my male to turn in a full circle when I move my hand in a spinning motion and say 'spin', he knows his name, and he's littler-box trained. If I have enough money to get another rat neutered, I want to get another male, a young one, since my current male is already over a year old.
xD Piggies are funny, my friends used to have them. My rats have perfected the stare of: Looovvveee mmeeeee O,O
I'm fairly convinced my chinchilla is trying to make me feel horrible for putting him in a smaller cage for the week. Not that he understand had I left in back at my apartment he wouldn't have gotten food or dust baths because everyone poofed out of existence for the holiday.
Then when I try and take him out to give him a break from his smaller cage, he runs away from me squeaking at me, and generally being a grumpy asshole.
I rarely close the cage my pigs live in, but there was one time when I had to for a few hours (needed to be sure to be able to pick one up, who had a vet appointment.) They will spend hours and hours, happily in their cage, but the one time I closed it, they were gnawing at the gate-bars like I had kept them there for decades.
On a side note, it WAS fun watching the one not going to the vet, when I opened again. She jumped in and out and made happy sounds and popcorn jumps into the air out of happiness.
I once had a rabbit that lived in our tv room. When we tried to take her outside in a little harness, she'd sulk, and then jump back in, when she thought we wouldn't notice. After getting back in, she'd clean each foot carefully, getting that icky dirt off them.
She had no clue, she was supposed to live in holes in the ground, not lazing around on couches.
My smallest dog believes that her entire mission in life is to be a teddy bear, and she's determined to achieve that goal better than any dog that ever lived. She just wants to cuddle 24/7, and the attention I pay to her is never ENOUGH. The problem is, I have to do shit from time to time that involves attention drawn from her to something like paying bills or twatting forum n00bs.
Sometimes I'll be sitting in my video rocker or on the sofa with the laptop in my lap, and her cuddle instinct becomes overpowering. She'll start smacking the keyboard in an attempt to swat the laptop away and free up my lap for maximum cuddling. She'll get mouthy, growling and occasionally barking for my attention (car rides to the dog park or pet store or vet etc. are nearly impossible with her, because she'll bark every half mile, and she thinks she needs to be in my lap WHILE I'M DRIVING ). She will also stand in my lap with her chest in my face while I'm trying to watch TV, and each time I try to look left or right, she'll move in unison trying her hardest to block my fucking view.
But I love her. She's an awesome dog, even when her awesomeness crosses the annoying threshold.
They're merely excited and repeating the motions that yielded them results before, not smart enough to claim starving like your vivid imagination makes it out to be. If you know that, just making sure.
There's this resturant where I live where there's a huge fish tank with some big fish it. One time while I was there there was some guy sitting by the fishtank and the biggest fish was hovering over his shoulder the entire time.
