Do you talk to your GP with a baby voice or higher pitched voice (or anything else)?

I do and I was wondering if anyone else did. When I walk in my room (GP's are in there) I say PIGGIES! in a highpitched voice and they popcorn and wheek. Also when I'm holding them I talk to them in a baby voice. :cool: Just curious. :p

I actually had to think about this one for a second lol. I use my regular voice most of the time. During lap time I use my regular voice but a bit softer, I have no idea why. I rarely use baby talk unless I'm intentionally "bugging" them. They hate kisses :p

I do talk to all of my pets in a higher-pitched voice than my usual voice. I tried singing to the pigs and they freaked out. Perhaps they thought I had been attacked by some animal and was in pain :D

I started to talk to my pigs in a high-pitched voice, which isn't very high-pitched, whenever I was feeding them. Now if I want their attention, I talk in the same voice and they come out to see if they're getting fed. :)

I say, "Guinea pigs? Guinea pigs? What are you doing?" and they wheek at me and look for food. It's funny because both my boys started to say "guinea pi', what you doin'?" lol and the guinea pigs do the same thing!

[MENTION=18390]SurfingPigs[/MENTION] That's smart! I usually only do the "PIGGIES!" When it's veggie time (But also when I walk inside my room). My two girls always come up to the front of the cage wheeking. :p

If she does it too it probably doesn't annoy her. If you only do it then see if she has an annoyed look on her face while your talking. Hope this Helped!
P.S. I talk to my two dogs in a high-pitched voice too.

I do something similar! In a high pitched voice I say ,"Piggies! Mommy is home!" And they all start wheeking and come to the side of their cages. They love when I talk in a high pitched voice for some reason! Makes them all come right to my hand for cuddle time. :) I have ten though. Lol so it is pretty darn cute when they all do it! :D

I start out with in a high pitched voice "Hi POPster!!!!!" Then I start asking him how his day was and tell him about mine.

I am the queen of baby piggy talk.
My friends always make fun of me because of it.

They are just so cute I can't help myself!
And I have nicknames for them. I all 3 "Lil' Stinkas" short for "little stinkers".
With 3 boars it seems to fit most of the time :)

i use a sing songy voice and say things like, "you're such a bad boy, aren't you?" or "such a little stinky one"..... things like that and they act like they're so happy to see me. We really laugh when they do that. We always call them our little pea brains... I also whistle and they wheek like crazy. They're just so darn cute!
