Happy Birthday Princess Piggy Poo

More like Happy Birth Month Princess Piggy Poo, since I’m not sure which day she was born. But because I was told Princess Piggy Poo was four weeks old when I adopted her in middle October three years ago, it seems middle September would be the time to celebrate.

Princess Piggy Poo B-day

When I tell people it’s Princess Piggy Poo’s birthday, I usually get two questions. The first question is, “What do you get a guinea pig for a birthday present?” Princess Piggy Poo’s birthday present is her all-time favorite thing in the whole world — and it isn’t me by a long shot — it’s a toilet paper roll filled with organic cilantro.

The other question is not so fun. “How long do guinea pigs live?” If Princess Piggy Poo remains healthy, she is likely halfway home. The cavy lifespan that I’ve seen online is four to eight years. My previous guinea pig lived five years and a couple months. His parents passed away a few months before him and his sister about six months after him. So five years seemed to be the magic number for that cavy family.

When I adopted Princess Piggy Poo, I kept tabs on the age of her parents. They lasted six and seven years, so I’m hoping Princess Piggy Poo can stretch out more time with me than my previous guinea pig. But who wants to think of the end? For now, it’s time to celebrate. Happy Birthday, Princess Piggy Poo and many, many, many, many, many, many, many more!

    WOW! It’s been three years already!! I remember when she was just a little fur ball and welcomed me into her life with a nice “warm stream” of delight the first time I held her. Wishing a very Happy Birth Month to Princess Piggy Poo, and many, many, many more. She sure is looking fantastic . . . I must eat more cilantro!! 🙂
