“To pocorn” is the term guinea pigs’ owners use to talk about the piggies’ demonstration of happiness and/or excitement. Literally, these little creatures jump and jump frantically, almost as if they had entirely lost control of their own bodies. In Boquita&Patita’s case (and, to be honest, in H&M’s case as well), this happens every time I make noise when grabbing some alfalfa or hay from a plastic bag before feeding them. Their frenetic jumps are also accompanied by intense wheek-wheeks as you’ll see and hear in the following video!
