If anyone on this thread would like a Christmas card then shoot me a pm with your address. I cant guarantee that the card won't have cats on or a Wallace and Gromit stamp on though.

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 03:42 PM

Cleaning out took a lot longer than expected!
I know they poo a lot but jeez!!! Every time i thought I'd got it all, I'd find another patch!
But they are happily munching on some fresh hay now!

We were quoting wallace and gromit at work the other day!

nonperson 19-11-2022 05:23 PM

I do Wallace's cheese hands quite often, lol


nonperson 19-11-2022 05:23 PM

Oh why won't that post properly... grr.

one_step_closer 19-11-2022 06:03 PM

I cleaned my bathroom today too, NP. I can never get the shower floor properly clean no matter what I clean it with. Do you do Wallace's cheese hands only when there's cheese or for other things?

I've never had a flu jab either Beckie, I think it's just for people with chronic physical health problems and older people and medical people maybe? Do the fluffies just poo wherever? Mmm, hay. Tasty.

I'd love a card from you Dawn, and to send one back to you if that's ok? Do you still have my address? I don't have exciting stamps or cat themed cards though.

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 06:21 PM

Haha! Love the cheese hands!

I was offered a flu jab when i was pregnant but i didn't have it. I don't think I've ever had proper flu though! My immune system is pretty solid.

Yep, poo all over the place! It was more concentrated in some areas though

one_step_closer 19-11-2022 06:26 PM

What about peeing? Why the toilet habits of guinea pigs is important for me to know, I have no idea!

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 06:48 PM

Because the fleece is black, I can't see the pee!
Some of the hay was wet though obviously! And I've put an extra pad in the most 'high traffic' area!

Zurg 19-11-2022 07:22 PM

Ew pee!!! Gross!! Bunny pee smells vague and disgusting at the same time. Piggie pee smelled more like actual pee, as far as i remember.
I'm in a bunny group on Facebook where a trend has set off with counting the amounts of poops a bunny makes in 24 hours XD it's hilarious!!!! SO MUCH POOP!!!!!

Sorry, strange things often fascinate me!!!

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 07:50 PM

I can't smell any pee currently!
I can just smell hay!
Haha! I couldn't count how much poop these two furry potatoes produce!

nonperson 19-11-2022 08:07 PM

Flu jab all done. Note to self: do NOT go to the retail park again until after Christmas.

Yeah I have the flu jab every year. I had proper flu once. Do not recommend.

Cheese hands can be for anything, Lindsay =P

There are bits of my bathroom I can't get clean either... =/

At least the pig poops are nice and neat and easy to clean up. But why don't they save it all up and poop just once or twice a day?

not_so_insig 19-11-2022 08:16 PM

I get a flu jab every year.

Lindsay I will happily send you a card. Send me your address via pm as I think I have it but I will double check I have the right one. Don't worry about the card just as long as it's not offensive I don't care what's on it.

nonperson 19-11-2022 08:19 PM


Cacoethes 19-11-2022 08:23 PM

Flu does sound horrible tbh!
Lots of people at work are currently ill! Not flu though! Just colds!
Hope i don't get it. I don't get ill very often!

On peter capaldi and Bill now!

nonperson 19-11-2022 08:27 PM

I think I need to watch all the series again. So many to get through though!

I accidentally discovered a spoiler for the next series while googling stuff earlier =o Have you watched the very latest episode yet?

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 08:31 PM

Yep there are lots!

Oh nooo!
Yes i have watched it! Well, half watched it because my concentration is awful XD

nonperson 19-11-2022 08:37 PM

Haha, well maybe you missed the big spoiler then =o

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 08:45 PM

When i get to that episode it will be like watching it for the first time!
I always miss the crucial bits! I zone back in just after something big has happened and then am clueless!

nonperson 19-11-2022 08:51 PM

I miss stuff all the time too. Can't just sit there and focus and watch something without being on my phone =/

I'm on series 13 now so I'll be watching the last one soon. Thought I'd already started this series but turns out I spent last weekend watching series 12 instead!

Time for Strictly now though!

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 08:59 PM

Yep same! And recently also, watching the piggies! They've been popcorning and playing! They had the zoomies a minute ago!

Enjoy strictly!

not_so_insig 19-11-2022 09:02 PM

I cant watch something without fiddling on my phone. Unless I am drinking something.

nonperson 19-11-2022 09:04 PM

What is popcorning?!

I wish I could dance... I don't know how people can move their bodies like that.

Dawn, I'm worse when I'm drinking! Can't pay attention to anything XD

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 09:07 PM

Popcorning is when they're happy they'll do little jumps! Like a popcorn kernel popping! A jump for joy. Honestly it is THE most adorable thing!

I can dance fairly well! Once i know what I'm doing!

That reminds me, i have a mango and raspberry rekorderlig in the fridge! Yum!

nonperson 19-11-2022 09:17 PM

Oh! Yes I remember my piggies doing that =D Didn't know it had a name! Is that a specific word for guinea pigs?

I don't think that I can't dance... It's probably a confidence thing that goes back many many years, even from gymnastics days, ugh. I'd love to do a jive! Or an American Smooth, lol.

I'm all out of cider. Sad times. Can't drink Rekorderlig anymore, it's far too sweet!

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 09:21 PM

Yes it is!
I didn't know until i joined the fb guinea pig groups!

My nanny takes great delight in telling us all how amazing she was at jiving when she was young! Literally any time anything related to dancing comes up, she'll go on about it XD

it is very sweet tbf!

nonperson 19-11-2022 09:24 PM

Ah the jive was definitely the dance of our grandparents. It was the dance of the wartime era! And even better because it wasn't choreographed.

So sweet!

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 09:28 PM

Shame that we don't really have that kind of dancing anymore!

I've recently got into pink gin and lemonade. But rekorderlig is 4 for 3 atm and a bottle of pink gin is like 13

nonperson 19-11-2022 09:51 PM

Ciders are always on offer! Gin is so popular lately. I've not tried it but I've never got on well with spirits so... I'm in no rush to try. What makes it pink?

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 10:01 PM

I've never tried normal gin. Only flavoured ones.
It's pink because it's raspberry flavoured!
At work we have parma violet, seville orange, grapefruit, rhubarb and ginger....pretty sure there are more! And the pinkster and gordons pink. Which are both raspberry. I can't taste the difference between them though!

nonperson 19-11-2022 10:05 PM

Do they actually taste of raspberry? Or do they still have that spirit burn?

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 10:10 PM

I wouldn't say they taste of raspberry but they do taste sweet! You can definitely taste the alcohol but it's not horrific! Not like vodka

nonperson 19-11-2022 10:13 PM

Hm. Yeah it's that vodka taste I can't stand.

Cacoethes 19-11-2022 10:20 PM

Yeah. I overdid it on the vodka in my younger days so the smell makes me gag now!
I can have it when it's heavily disguised in cocktails but not like vodka and a mixer.
I spent one Christmas day alone and just drank a bottle of straight vodka. That was not a good day XD

nonperson 19-11-2022 10:48 PM

Yeah I haven't had good experiences with it either. Or any spirits really!

No I imagine that was an awful day! =|

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 09:47 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 20-11-2022 11:13 AM


Cacoethes 20-11-2022 11:13 AM

How are you?

tamobhuuta 20-11-2022 11:25 AM

Hey guys. How are you?

nonperson 20-11-2022 12:06 PM

Hey. I'm tired and don't know what to do with myself today.

How're you both?

tamobhuuta 20-11-2022 01:31 PM

I'm doing ok. My mum and sister came to see me which was lovely. I might shower later. Is there anything you need to do?

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 02:13 PM

I'm ok thanks!

Maybe have a resting day today if you're tired np?

That's nice tamo :)

I had double pilates, got a hot chocolate and went to asda! Now back home and put some washing on. Got some chinese chicken drumsticks from the hot counter in asda! Yummy!
Need to shower and change bedsheets too. And spot clean the cage.
Other than that, I'm chilling!

one_step_closer 20-11-2022 02:36 PM

Hi everyone, I hope your day is going well.

Did you find something to do, NP? If you're tired it's ok to rest for a bit.

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit, Tamo.

You're just chilling in between lots of stuff, Beckie! You sound busy as usual.

I changed my bedding too, always do it on Sundays. I washed my hair and hoovered a bit of cardboard mess Crookshanks made from a scratcher that is basically just cardboard and he scratches it and it goes everywhere. I've got a busy 3 days ahead so don't know if I'll get all my usual stuff done. I have to be up early 3 days in a row so I hope I can do it.

not_so_insig 20-11-2022 02:43 PM

Good luck with the getting up early Lindsay.

I have stomach ache :-(

one_step_closer 20-11-2022 02:47 PM

Thanks, Dawn.

Oh no, has it just come on or has it been painful for a while? Do you have anything you can take to settle it? I hope it passes soon.

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 02:56 PM

Fairly busy!
I like to be busy. Think I'd go insane being in the house ALL day! Though tbh it probably wouldn't be so bad now I have the piggies!

Well done for doing stuff!
The cardboard sounds annoying!
I just have hay everywhere XD

Good luck with getting up early!

one_step_closer 20-11-2022 02:58 PM


Animals always make a mess somehow!

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 03:12 PM

They do!
I have a house inspection on Thursday. I'll do a big clean out the day before. Well, maybe on the Tuesday. At work on Wednesday and I doubt I'll want to do a big clean after work!

nonperson 20-11-2022 03:30 PM

Mmmm Chinese chicken drumsticks.

I've showered too and am part way through doing some washing. Geordi's being very clingy so we're just going to watch Doctor Who for the rest of the day.

Cacoethes 20-11-2022 03:31 PM

They were very tasty!

Good plan!

one_step_closer 20-11-2022 05:54 PM

Take it easy, NP.

Have you finished your tasks yet, Beckie?
