Cecil and Tobi

Well. I walked into PetSmart and walked out with a couple of dudes.

Guinea pigs, of course.

The void in my heart has been filled with two little floofs! I also knew I was doomed when I picked out names for the two I liked.

The whole Fam (brothers from one or more litters). There's 6 in there.


Mynx is just sniffing them out but she's making them dance.

This is Cecil the Fabulous

This is Tobi the Skittish (although, Cecil is the skittish one but...)

Cecil is so floofy and magestic!

I'm not quite sure who the boss is here... Tobi seems to like to sit on his brother.

I think the Midwest cage is like a whole new world for them.

Right now Tobi is under one of the ramps with Cecil, who follows him around. He's the one purring the most.

Congratulations TG on the new dudes! Cute dudes! Nice names. I hope Mynx has fun with the new playmates.

They're both super cute TG. I like the tresses of Tobi and the fluffiness and coloring of Cecil. Interesting names you chose for them. Very Happy

So... My coworker maybe meant it as a joke but he said I should live stream/stream the piggies. He said "If I can stream my baby, you can stream your babies."

So I set up my webcam and opened OBS and made a scene and had TeamViewer running. And the piggies were streaming live all day...

I'm adding in my Canon to test a second video source to catch them when they're hiding under the ramps in the cage. The Canon battery will die, of course, but I'll have something for a little while...

So do we get a link? I want to watch those 'babies'!

I might be able to do that better through Twitch. I'm using Facebook live at the moment. I'll have to play with this. Since I started using OBS it seems capable of streaming from and I can customize the experience a bit more.

Here we have almost 30 minutes of piggy activity from the morning. They basically hid under the ramps the rest of the day.

I've tweaked the sound settings for next time to cut down on the background 'white' noise. I'm also hoping to get a second webcam. The cam in the corner was my Canon and it shut over just about an hour in when the battery died.

Wow, that's brilliant. Result is super professional. Maybe you could add some Pink Panther background music or something. The angle is excellent. I like the props in the cage. One could probably even do a Madagascar animated out of this.

Glad to see you get some new dudes may they have a happy and pleasant lively hood with their new owner.

If I happen to be live with the piggies then it'll be on my Twitch channel.

It's live right now, actually...

They're a bit more playful when I'm around. Maybe cause I'm making this bit of noise now and then.

I'm borrowing another camera from work so we'll see what kind of quality I get out of the Logitech Brio 4k camera! even though Twitch only does 1080...

Things have escalated a bit LOL! Very Happy

It's become brilliant. Really like the layout of the piggy pens. Looks as though they're having great fun and are much more relaxed.
