View Full Version : Moon And Squeeks Get Hitched

07-25-2002, 01:20 PM
Ok, it has been a looooong time since I mentioned that Squeekers was getting a bride! Well, he had the "big snip" and was, I thought, eager and anxious to meet his betrothed, Moonbeam! Well, as with most marriages, in the beginning, a few bumps in the road are to be expected!!:D And after all, it WAS an arranged affair!! Squeeks, you see, is a very gentle, quiet, sweet little guy. Seems his bride is just a BIT more energetic, curious, active and demanding!!

Upon their first meeting, poor little Squeeker Man stood frozen in fear, teeth a chattering. (The ultimate signal of stress and fear in a piggie!):eek: He looked up at me as if to say, "WHAT is that Mom! Help!!" But that didn't stop Moon from pursuing her mate. She ran him ragged, her little legs in over drive, chasing him mercilessly around the room, wheeking and squeeking and nibbling on his hiney, ears and nose! Mind you, Moon is half his size! But her little paws paddled her around the room at lightning speed and Squeeks was in a state of high alert!!

I decided not to house them in the same cage, as I had hoped, but instead, put their separate cages right up against each other so they could enjoy a more gradual "getting to know you" phase from a safe distance. Well, this didn't stop my Moon Baby!! She would grab the bars of his cage with her teeth and rattle them until he would finally emerge from his timber hide-a-way!:D Well, that was a few months ago. I am happy report that as of today they are enjoying a relationship that is based upon mutual respect and deference for their differences. Each day they enjoy an hour or more of shared floortime, with Moon STILL in "hot" pursuit.:D But Squeeks is no longer frozen in fear and will even pause for a nuzzle, some nose nibbies and even a kiss or two from Moon! Here are some pics of them, including their first encounter and Squeeks having a tubbie!:) (Which he loves):)

First encounter!! "Can I come in and play??"

Oh my!! Look how little she is, compared to Squeekers. You would think it would be the other way around with her personality, wouldn't you? :D I'm so glad you finally showed her to us, Sandra!!!! :)

Here's a close up! Isn't she tiny???? She really rules the roost!! Everyone says she looks like a baby skunk! Not a glam girl, but she's my baby!:D


More pics are coming of Squeeks in the bath!:D

He loves his tubbie! "No soap in the eyes, Mom!"


I'm ready for my fluff and dry now!!

Thanks for the update Sandra!

I'm glad that the two get along now. Moonbeam is so precious and pretty. And I love the pics of Squeekers :D

Awww, what a sweet story. I love the pics. Those bathtime pictures are just precious. It makes me miss my guinea pig Lisa who I had when I was young. I just love those piggies!

Oh My Gosh!!!!! Sandra these pictures are so cute and the story is just great! I must say that Squeeks looks quite a big larger when he is not dripping wet! LOL! What a cute little duo you have there, and I agree.....more pictures are DEFINITELY needed!!! ;)

What great pictures and story. I've never seen a piggie in the tub before. He certainly looks happy. Are there going to be baby piggies some day? Moon is so pretty she's bound to win him over.:D

MOFF - I believe Squeeks had his "wings clipped" prior to the nuptials to ensure a union free from the pressures of family responsiblities! :D ;)

I am so glad that everything has worked out, that your pigs are becoming good friends. I know it took patience and time just like my rabbits. they have JUST become friends after months too.

Nice Picture too.

Oh the tubbie, the tubbie, I don't think I have ever seen anything that cute. Squeekers having a good soak and not in any hurry to get out. OMG, I love it! And the teeny tiny petite Ms. Moonbeam, so much like her Mommy. How can you say she is not a glam girl. I think she is a striking beauty!

By the way....nice fixtures!....heehee.

What darling little piggie pies! New little Moon is quite the little darling and little Squeeks looks thrilled to have his own girlie piggie as his little piggie wife. Very cute couple :) Congrats on the new little weeeeker :) I know that she's going to be thrilled to bits at her new home with you and Squeeks!
