Cookie & Stevie
Species: Abyssinian/American Mix(?) & Peruvian
Gender(s): Males (Not neutered)
Age/DOB: 21/03/2020 (Cookie) & 13/9/2019 (Stevie)
Cookie (tri-color) and Stevie (white) are a pair of bonded male piggies. Both of them are shy and need time to warm up, but are extremely food motivated. They will run up to you when they hear you rustling the bag of Vitamin C or wheek when they smell hints of fresh fruits and vegetables being cut in the kitchen. They have recently learnt how to give their paw in exchange for treats - all you have to do is give them your palm and say "Paw, paw~", and they will come up.
Stevie enjoys head scratchies and will stay put when you give him head rubs, but his backside is his no-no zone. Cookie will run away when you try to touch him but this boy cannot multitask, so the best time to give him scratchies is when he is enjoying his treats.
Most of the time, you will see them snoozing away after munching on their food and hay. They prefer green leafy hays, and love the hay flowers.
They have opposite piggy-nalities. Cookie is more calm and Stevie tends to be more alert/active, but both are extremely lovable and will respond when their names are being called. They do not particularly like being cradled when cleaned, so you'll have to be quick when it comes to that. They will popcorn when their enclosure is being cleaned - they love a clean environment!
Likes: Cucumber, Carrot, Romaine Lettuce, Capsicum, Broccoli Leaves, Cherry Tomatoes, Apples.
P.S. Stevie loves cucumbers, Cookie loves carrots - you will notice by their speed of eating.
Special Requirements: They only know how to drink from roller ball bottles (e.g. Savic). You can try adding another Ferplast bottle into the enclosure but chances of them drinking from that often is quite low.
