It's just me and the guinea-babies in the house just now as my bf is out of town on business. So I thought I'd use the opportunity to bond with them a little more and managed to pick them up out of their cage, one at a time and hold them for a little while. All was going well until the ****ing phone rang!!

Capy squeaked a little until I reassured him and stroked him a little. He seemed to be the most calm and stayed still whilst I held him. He IS the least skittish out of the two but started to get a bit fidgety when I lowered him into his cage. Moose was really skittish - that little dude is FAST - and constantly tried to climb up my jumper and neck when I held him. Unfortunately he was the one that I was holding when the phone went.

I gave them some yellow pepper afterwards as a reward. Hopefully they'll associate being traumatised with food and maybe not mind as much when I do pick them up now lol.
 
Haha! My girls have grown so accustomed to noise I nearly think they are deaf!

Right now, my grandpa is taking out our old shower tiles that we used to replace it with plastic, and here is a description of what he has done so far, and the girls have not flinched:

1: Hammer to the old tile until it is all out. About...... 45 tiles for the first wall. Another whole wall to come.

2: Something even more noisy than a hammer..... Dunno what it was, but it was pounding stuff off of the walls and it was electric!

3: Drilling the new stuff to the wall.

And part 2 tomorrow! lol
