        This may sound idiotic but I've had my baby(gp) for about a
week and a half and have not seen her blink once. Is that possible?
Also is it possible for piggies to sleep with their eyes open?
Thanks!
Sarah

We've had this debate before... <wink, wink>.. they do both. Sleep with
their eyes open and closed. Depends on the pig! <wink, wink, blink,
blink>.

Sarah, we've occasionally seen our piggies 'leak' a white milky liquid from
their tear ducts.  They coat their eyes with this substance, then suck it
back in through their tear ducts.  Very creepy to see!! but this seems to be
how they rinse stray dust particles from their eyes, when necessary.
(Either that, or these *** creatures sharing my home are *really* aliens
in disguise....)

Thanks all. Of all the things I had read I'd never read anything about
that. I have a slight well, its not really a problem, but she needs a
name. I got her from a guinea pig rescue(she was born there to a sow
that came in pregnant) and the woman just called her baby girl for
five months. She's an Abby and she's white with grayish-brown patches.
Any suggestions would be appreciated(human-like or strange).
Thanks!
Sarah

Ah, now I see the light.  That explains why we've all become guinea pig slaves!
 They've gained complete control over us!  At least mine have!  :-)
