Happy Groundhog Day!
Belka would like to wish everybody and everypiggy Happy Groundhog Day! Obviously Belka is a guinea pig, not a groundhog, but she feels that out of all of us cavies she resembles one the most with her big button eyes and tawny colored ticked agouti coat.
Whereas Pennsylvania has Punxsutawney Phil to predict whether or not there will be six more weeks of winter, we have Belka. First, she hibernates in her cozy after a delicious meal. You can tell she has comfortably settled in by how she is resting her chin on her little piggy paw.
Daybreak coupled with the jarring sounds of crinkling plastic bags makes it difficult for Belka to continue sleeping.
Judging by the look on Belka's face, it seems safe to say that there will be six more wheeks of winter (although here in California, the only seasons we seem to experience are Sunny and Sunnier). Now that she has seen her own shadow, she is off to see about breakfast.
Nevertheless, whether you are groundhog, guinea pig, or any other type of rodent, Happy Groundhog Day! Humans, be sure to give your resident rodents extra hugs and veggies - even if they are only looking for their next meal instead of their shadow.
