    Okay, junk food confession time.

    I've been trying to eat better lately and doing a pretty good job but sometimes I just dive off the deep end and go nuts and it makes me feel better to admit it to someone, hah.

    Yesterday, I may or may not have eaten an entire packet of toffee bakewell tarts all at once. They were incredible and I'm never buying them again because apparently I just can't handle myself around them. :p

    Omg, this is so awesome, I love historical doggo things like this! Especially as it features both drop and prick eared Skye's, obviously before they were combined into one breed/ring!

    Here is a modern day Kiki-worm for comparison!

    Damn, I wish I didn't have a cold, this isn't a great time for it. Chest colds + asthma = sadness.

    It's been almost two months since I posted in this thread!

    My other half came over to visit from america in November and it was incredible. He was sick for most of his trip so we just stayed in and chilled out most of the time but I've never enjoyed someone's company more. <3

    December was pretty hectic with trying to get/make christmas presents but I got there in the end. Even got a Nintendo Switch for christmas, which is the first time I've had a current generation console since I was 14, so I'm really happy!

    Unfortunately, rushing for christmas meant that my routines got all messed up. I have health conditions that rely a lot on routine and healthy eating/living to manage, so the fact that all that was pushed to one side has really done a number on me. I'm slowly starting to get my routines and health back together but it has been rough, and will likely be over a month before I'm back to normal. These last few days have just been focused purely on making sure I eat three times a day and drink enough fluid. The hang over effect from big events like christmas is tough for everyone, but especially for people like me, I guess.

    Still, taking Meg the guinea pig to the farm on Saturday to hopefully meet a new friend! Meg has been confirmed as cancer free so I'm so happy about that!

    Got a new guinea pig yesterday, but she isn't doing well with the current one and I feel really bad for her.

    Oh dear :-( I hope that with some time they will get used to each other and reduce hostilities.

    Yeah, I hope so too. I'm pretty sure that the problem is Meg's ovarian cysts are causing her hormones to be out of whack and that's why she's trying to harass/mount Batgirl all the time. My other pig, Missy, displayed similar behaviour when she had ovarian cysts. However, Meg reacts very badly to anaesthetic so I don't think I can justify having her undergo two operations on the off chance that it might make her behave better to Batgirl. I hate to say it, but if things don't settle down, I will have to take Batgirl back to where I got her.

    Hi loopy could this just be dominant alpha behaviour from Meg. It may lessen if the new pig accepts meg as the alpha. From a guy old enough to be your grandad haha

    I'm always grateful for the advice! =)

    I'm hoping it is just dominance behaviour and will settle down within a few more days. Batgirl is very submissive and is doing everything right (appeasing noises, running away, giving up food and hides to Meg etc). Batgirl spent her whole life in a group of ~30 piggies so she knows how to get along with pigs, it's just Meg that's... well, she's showing her lack of social skills, I guess.

    So, Batgirl will have to go back to the farm, it seems. Meg was starting to show signs of stress (upset tummy, eating little, sleeping a lot etc) and it isn't fair on her. I've put them in separate cages and they both seem much happier. It's a shame, I love little Batgirl, but she will be happy at the farm with her family too.
