Quiet Pig?

Post by Micki & Dwain » Wed, 07 Jan 1998 04:00:00



Hi all,
I've posted here under the nick, webladyone. This is our family nick.
Since rescuing Pinky from the bird store on Friday, he seems to be doing
pretty well. He'll popcorn a little bit when he gets his floor time,
but, when he's in his hutch, he just sits there. He's also very content
when I hold and pet him.
Question: He's very quiet. He never wheeks or makes any noises of any
kind. He eats and drinks well, and he runs around a little bit during
floor time, so I know he's not sick.  Do some piggies just not speak or
what? I wish so much for him to talk to me. I don't understand it. I
even played tug-o-war with him using parsely. He still didn't wheek.
Any suggestions?

Some are just naturally quiet.  Others are quite loud.  Others start off
loud and then stop talking all together.  Others start out quiet and
become big talkers.  They are all different.  Enjoy your little Pinky in
all of his quietness.  Enjoy his popcorning and willingness to cuddle.
Enjoy his health.  He's a wonderful companion with lots of personality.

Our Felix was just the same for a few days, he won't keep quiet anymore
though, even when I get out of bed in the morning to make the coffe he
expects a little treat from the fridge, if he doesnt get it, he'll remind
me!!

I'd say he'll wheek as soon as he gets used to the regimen.  He'll know
where the food comes from and chime in sooner or later.  I have also found
they are more vocal when there are more of them.  Weewee was nearly silent
when I first got him.  When we brought Wookie, eventually they made a duet
at mealtimes.  Now that we have Wheeker (appropriately named), you can't
hear the television over them sometimes....

Out of curiosity, does anyone think that females tend to be quieter than
males?  When I was younger, we only had males and they would queep as
loud as possible.  Mona on the other hand doesn't queep often (Usually
when I take her food dish away because she knows that I am about to
refill it.), but she chatters quite a bit when she's out of the cage.
    Oh yes: I took her to Redondo Beach with me for the holidays.  She
survived a long trip with no complaints, and has absolutely no fear of
my mom's dog. -:-)

The three boys I had were very quiet.  Timothy (a girl ... long story) had
the loudest voice I've heard (and wasn't afraid to use it hourly).  And
when Truffles gets going, she has an ear-piercing screech ... but has
stopped using it most of the time (and lets young Aurora take her place).
Wheeker used to talk often and quite loudly when she was younger, but
turned over that duty to Truffles when she came to live here.  At this
point, it does seem like I have a fairly quiet household (they can't wheek
when they eat ... and Aurora almost always has something in her mouth ...
right now it's hay).  But they get very loud when they are playing on the
floor (I don't give them food while they're out ... so their mouths are
empty).

Yeah, one of my piggies was like that. When she was a baby she
wheeked really loudly all the time: so much that we called her Siren!
Anyway, we couldn't keep all the babies and when she was old enough
Siren went to live with a friend of ours. We didn't see her for ages,
and then one day our friend said he was going on holiday and would we
like to look after Siren while he was away? We said yes of course,
and Siren duly came to stay. We were amazed to find that Siren hardly
made a sound, even when our guinea pigs broke into their breakfast
time chorus, Siren remained silent. However, Siren had changed from
being a cute little bundle of fluff into a beautiful shapely guinea
pig with a wonderful glossy coat. Sirens are also beautiful mermaids
that lured sailors off course at sea, so our little Siren changed
from being one type of siren to another.
