Princess Piggy Poo’s Happy Trails

Sometimes, I carry Princess Piggy Poo around the house like a football—my little piggyskin. She accompanies me on chores such as opening the blinds, putting on a kettle for tea, collecting soiled towels for wash…nothing too strenuous. Princess Piggy Poo OMG

As far as I can tell, Princess Piggy Poo enjoys bobbing around in my arm and seeing the sights from a higher vantage point. Funny thing though, when a guinea pig needs to poop, she just does. So, as I’m strolling around the house, Princess Piggy Poo is leaving little remnants here and there, mapping where we’ve been. It’s not something I think about as it’s happening, but today when I was Swiffering the floors I was reminded each time I came across one of her hardened brown pellets.

If you’re a clean freak, it’s difficult to have an indoor pet. With a guinea pig you can expect shedding and a little bedding and hay finding their way to your floor; however, the poop is an added bonus. Cavy poop isn’t messy or smelly, although if you step on one that is freshly made, the torpedo-shaped poop will flatten…kind of like brown Play-Doh®. It’s easy enough to clean up guinea pig poop especially if it’s a few hours old—all you need is a broom—or a tissue if it’s a new arrival.

Maybe I should be more grossed out. I guess I’ve become desensitized to cavy caca. After all, it’s only a few poopies here and there. As long as I clean before company comes, Princess Piggy Poo can maintain her royal air.

    I think it’s great that Princess Piggy helps you out with the chores. And it is only right that she be delicately held while she works! As for the pellets that are dropped, I’m assuming they are a lot like rabbit, mouse or rat “pellets.” I’ve seen those before. If I come across those in my present surroundings, it will be unpleasant. I don’t think you should be any more grossed out than when a parent of a human baby changes their kid’s poopy diapers. I’ve heard plenty about that kind of poop, but learned something new today . . . thanks for the scoop on the guinea poop!! 🙂
