Now that the heat waves are behind us and the chill of winter will remain for the next few months, I place a small towel over Princess Piggy Poo’s hiding house. The towel doesn’t stay there long. My clever cavy usually arranges the towel to her liking so that she can have a warm cover.
There are all kinds of towels: bath towels, kitchen towels, finger towels, crying towels, but nothing is more appreciated than a cavy towel. Like all towels, a cavy towel can get a little messy but Princess Piggy Poo has an extensive collection and there’s always a clean one at the ready.
Princess Piggy Poo’s favorite towel is a white ribbed hand towel. In raised nubs it says, “HAND,” so there’s no confusing the original intention of the towel. Unlike the other thin, discount store towels, her favorite one is from Pottery Barn. As discerning as Princess Piggy Poo can be, I think the reason she likes the fluffy, more expensive towel best is because it makes good camouflage for her.
Princess Piggy Poo enjoys this time of year hiding under her cavy towel. She likes the extra cuddle time, too. But I’m not a fan of cold weather. After two chilly weeks, I’m ready to throw in the towel.
