I'm a GRANDMA!!!!!


Remember I didn't know why MY Meatball turned into a real MEATBALL???

Well, this is what happaned!!

I'm a SuperGRANDMA now!!

I take my job very seriously, see, here I was, cleaning them,

And then I put them to bed, (well, almost all of them!)

The little red eyed one finally decided to sleep too,

I love my SuperGRAND-PIGGIES!!!

Aren't they just the cutest? They were only one day old here.

Mum didn't let me see them when they were first born,

She knew I would want to see them and she knew I would get stressed out if I didn't get to see them,

But she was worried that MY gentle cutie Meatball would EAT her babies if she smelled the SuperDALE on them.... How ridiculous does that sound??? My Meatball loves me! (mum: I think hamsters eat their babies...?)

(mum: they were under 7 hours old in this set of pictures. Went to bed at 12, woke up at 7, there they were! See the belly button?)

Meatball had THREE baby piggies in her, can you believe it??

The first one had Meatball's colour,

The second one was grey with brown highlights,

The third one was the littlest one with red eyes, and light grey in colour,

Meatball would put them on their backs to clean them, see!

And then she would feed them after she's fed herself to the point of exploding!

Anyways, D-Guy looked up online (he's the piggie expert!) and said touching was ALLOWED! Piggies don't eat their babies just because they smelled different!!

So I got to do THIS!!

(mum: So... whoever that responded to my ad that said "Female guinea pig wanted" either didn't know or lied because Sesame turned out to be a BOY!! The person that sold us Meatball told me she was a girl, so when I was looking to get her a housemate, I specifically noted the gender as I did not want Sesame Meatballs!!! I never thought to double check! Not that I knew/know how!)

I LOVE how I went from no piggies for 5 years to 5 piggies in one year!!! (mum: more like 6 months...) D-Guy says he wants to keep ALL of them and get all the boys neutered!!! I think D-Guy is my new best friend!!

(mum: that is NOT going to happen, sorry Sunshade.)

Congrats on becoming a Grandma, Sunshade!! We agree that 5 guinea pigs are a bit too much.. BUT how can you bear to give any one of those Seasa Meeatball Juniors away? So we hope you get to keep all of them.. Hehee!!

Ok now onto more serious business.. You've got to name them!

Hi Sunshade and evil mum. Hmm, I wonder if Juice eats "gp's". Better watch out for that one. I think it's time to build an annex to the house. Your family is getting bigger Sunshade.

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

A big congrats on the new piggie babies. Don't worry, Sunshade. Maybe Mom will change her mind and let you keep them as long as YOU take care of them!

Cassie said...

Just so cute. Now you have started "a thing" here at our house. BabyRocketDog wants to have her own pregnant piggie now so she can be a granny! Hootie wouldn't be quite so gentle with them though I fear...He's a hunter. :>(
Have fun with the new babies!!

They only a day old and look well furred and eyes open and big. Mommy GP must have been huge.
