Pigs Can Tell Time

Winston can tell time I think.  He gets fed at 8 am and he knows when its 8 am.  No need for an alarm clock - the piglet will snort and play and make all kinds of noise to let you know its time for breakfast.  In other pig news Winston learned to sit a few days ago. Now he does it all the time in an effort to get food.  He will sit for no reason with a crazy cute expression on his face - I need to capture that with the camera for sure.  He is too fun!!  He seems to be back to normal in regards to his injection sites and the soreness he had.  Yesterday he had some good playtime - running around with no limping.

The kitties are good - mostly just hanging out.  Oliver tries to interface with Winston which works some of the time but sometimes the piglet is too rough.  The other kitties are not quite sure what to think...

Violet and Winston played their blanket game yesterday.  Finn has decided that he need to ride the piglet like a rodeo star.  The is no biting involved but Winston doesn't love it.  Theo is still obsessed and Maddie just wants to play an endless game of tag.  To say the least - we are keeping them separated unless we are there to watch the goings on...

Emma likes the piglet but doesn't care for him jumping on her so she gives him a little warning bark. Seems to work - Winston goes on about his business.

All in all - we are good to go - everyone seems to be happy and feeling good.  We are working through knowing that Winston has a heart murmur and trying to move along normally and not worry about it until there is something to worry about.  It's in the back of your mind for sure but he seems great - running and playing and not exhibiting any signs of distress.  Fingers crossed.
