Introducing the Three Little Pigs!

Evolet: Why are we last? We’re always last! Just because we can’t run up to our human when she gets home and lick her to death….

Neytiri: Not that we’d want to…she’s big…and loud...eek!

Jazzy: Squeak!

Meeting Jazzy for the first time.

Evolet: We live outside too. It seems to be a common theme. Just as well because we’re not too fond of being ogled and taken out of our cage into the…the…OPEN!

Our hutch under the lemon tree.

Neytiri: Yeah, I much prefer the smell of the grass that’s just out of reach downstairs.

Jazzy: It’s so mean to keep the door closed so we can’t get down! Our human even weighed down the door with a brick.

Evolet: We thought we had our human fooled. How dare she try to lock us in our hutch? We are herbivores! We must graze. All. The. Time. If we don’t have grass to chew we’ll chew the hutch itself. Which is actually how we got the idea in the first place…

Neytiri: Yeah…we chewed a little hole in the door to the ramp and suddenly we could see grass!

Jazzy: Squeak!


Evolet: So I stuck my nose right in there, SHOVED it up and slipped under. Grass!

Neytiri: It was quite perfect really. We had a lot of fun seeing the stupefied look on our human’s face. She always muttered that she could have sworn she’d seen us in the run downstairs yet when she reached the cage we were all chewing innocently on the hay upstairs.

Jazzy: And…thinking we hadn’t gotten any grass to eat all day she would give us more!

Evolet: I don’t know what gave us away….

E, N and J were here '10.

Neytiri: But now there is a brick blocking our way!

Jazzy: Squeak!

Evolet: Anyway, I’m Eevee…the boss of the brood. My human says I’m very confident and talkative, and not as much of a scaredy cat (pardon the pun! The cat sure is scary!) as the other girls.

Neytiri: I’m Neytiri and I’d rather be in a small dark space than out in the open. I'm Evolet's twin, but not identical (I have a big white patch on my face!). My human calls me the vibrating pig because, if I’m the centre of attention, I vibrate! When Jazzy joined us a couple of months ago, Evolet and I fought over who got to be her adoptive mother. We chased eachother around the cage and even bit eachother!

Jazzy: And I was sometimes in the wrong place at the wrong time! But finally Neytiri won the fight and now she’s my mummy! Evolet still gets jealous sometimes and I suffer the consequences. Boy, her teeth sure are sharp! Anyway, I’m Jasmine and, according to my human, I’m still semi wild. I run away from her and squeal as though I haven’t eaten for weeks for absolutely any reason.

Evolet: So there you have it. You’ve now met all of the brood. Needless to say there are lots of girly hormones in our household!

Oscar: Just a friendly reminder from our human to store the bits and pieces of things you've been feeding your animals out of reach of children....or grown up humans for that matter. My human was feeding Jazzy a strawberry to put her in a good mood before her bath and left it on the kitchen bench when Jazzy had had enough. Then my human's mother, thinking it was one of her human pups who had chewed on the strawberry ATE IT ALL UP! Uh oh! She made a scary face at my human...but then couldn't help laughing at how silly the whole thing was. Crisis averted!
