Humans: Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them

We have been rather angry with our humans lately. First off, one of the humans dropped the camera he uses to take pictures of us doing adorable things, and now we can't update the blog with pictures until those klutzy bipeds get the camera fixed.

Second, today we woke up at 6:30am to find that the human who usually feeds us our breakfast of timothy hay and Carefresh Complete (mmmmm...) was missing. Where's our breakfast, human? We figured that after a while, the human would realize his egregiousness mistake and come running, but after several minutes of waiting, no human appeared.

So we wheeked and wheeked as loudly as we could until the human got out of bed and fed us. "Why, piggies?" he asked. "Why must you wake me up on the one day I get to sleep in?" Well, what are we supposed to think? You feed us consistently every day at 6:30am, so now we're trained to expect food at that time.

Anyway, the humans haven't been all bad. It turns out that when they ordered our Carefresh bedding online earlier this month, they also ordered a little surprise for us- a Super Pet brand Play Tunnel! Basically, it's a fabric cylinder with four nylon ropes with clips at the end that you can clip to our wire cage. We would upload some pictures of it but, well, you know...

They clipped it to our cage and put some treats in the middle to encourage us to use it. I figured Buffy would waste no time climbing into it, since she makes a habit out of sitting on top of the pigloos and jumps over obstacles in the cage when she can. Now, I have a fear of climbing so I never go on top of the pigloos, but I really wanted those treats inside the play tunnel. So first I tried chewing my way through the fabric. No luck. Next, I tried breaking the nylon ropes that held the tunnel in place, but soon I realized that it would take forever. Finally, I put my front two paws inside one end of the cylinder and the weight of my body caused all the treats in the tunnel to roll over to me! Ha! Work smarter, not harder, I always say.

So in the end, neither of us actually climbed into the tunnel as the humans intended. It's just too big and scary, and why bother when you can find a way to get the treats without having to work for it?
