Random Thought Thursday

I watch and talk to my pets a lot, probably more than I should admit in a public forum. I thrive on the infinite wisdom that exists in their silence. I do know however, should they break that silence... and, ever begin speaking to me- like in "people talk", I should seek professional help. In the interim though, my thoughts on their thoughts make for great Thursday blog fodder.

Beau, our recently transitioned guinea pig was an introvert like me.
The pic above was his initial response to the arrival of the cats back in 2006.

Beau thoroughly enjoyed his short reign as the only fur child.
There were many perks...

But all good things must...well y'know, that couldn't last long!

There were certainly some boundary issues to work out between he and Biju.
Biju was, er... a more worldly gal and certainly not the best house guest!

She often had to be confronted about these affronts.

But through it all they remained "friends 'til the end".

And, as she looks out over him now, I bet she misses him just as much as we do.

So call your friends, even if they're- well y'know, a little different.



Peace and friendship

What great photos and memories you have. We have share our home with many a critter over the years from the usual dogs and cats to a guinea pig, mice, fish, birds and a rabbit. We loved them all....well most of them. The mice were for a science experiment and someone told me they don't live long....liars! Itchy and Scratchy lived for what seemed to be forever. They got old and shriveled and gray.....geez, I guess I loved them too.

Aw... what a great post! That is ONE cute guinea pig. I do spend a lot of time in wonder of my pets as well! They communicate so many things without the words we are blessed with! :)

I love the photos and how sweet that the cat and Beau got along. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it. Although, I have to admit that I never kept a guinea pig or cat for that matter. So thanks for the education.

Awwww... sweet thoughts for a friend gone. Thanks for sharing your beautiful memories through photos... makes me want to go take a buncha pictures of my goldendoodle, Teddy Bear.

(Okay, but seriously? Beau could have done hair commercials... )
