How vocal are your piggers?
I now have four, Poppa & Psycho, and Little Bill & Elephant (my daughter named them)
Poppa will let me know as soon as someone comes downstairs that he's in the need of some salad and Mom time, Psycho will only raise a fuss if he thinks he's missing out on something, and during "floor time" because he feels the need to follow me around, and will wheek to let me know that I'm moving faster than his little porker limbs can carry him.
Elephant & Little Bill though, are a whole other story. Elephant will wheek every time he hears the fridge open, a bag rattle, jingley bells, the cats meow, the rats make noise....Little Bill doesn't make much sound unless your scritching his butt, he likes that!
I know every pigger is different, I was just curious.
Also-Elephant will sound the panic alarm when I take the water bottle out to fill it, so I've had to buy a second so that they have one at all times, I have to rotate filling them, I cannot do it at the same time or he freaks out! I got these two from a neighbor who "lost the new" and mentioned to me that they "don't really mess with them much anymore, they're not as fun as we thought". So could it be that they've gone without water, and it's just panic that they think I may not bring it back?
