Wheeky Piggy

Summer afternoon treats!

Summer is definitely here and we can feel the heat all over the country! Freya and Ellie are having it rough as well, they are consuming more water than usual since their cage is located in the hallway outside the bedrooms, where it is hot in the afternoon. To help them cool down, I’ve given them some yummy (and healthy!) treats to munch on 🙂

Since it was incredibly hot today, I gave them some chilled papaya, watermelon, and the ever-familiar cucumber. They have not had papaya and watermelon before so it’s going to be their first time to eat these fruits!

At first, they chose to eat the cucumber since it’s the one they’re familiar with. Ah, girls, you used to like eating the new stuff!

After a while, they picked one of the new fruits. Ellie tasted the watermelon first, while Freya took the papaya.

But after sampling everything, here’s a short summary of which one they liked better:

But of course, Ellie would still love a few bites of Freya's watermelon... *stealth mode on*

Do your piggies have favorite fruits or veggies? What do you do to keep them cool during a hot day? 🙂
