PIGTURE OF THE DAY: nekkid babies!!

New foster piggies…two more skinny pigs!! They are little pink baby sisters from the same hoarding rescue our previous trio came from. We need to fatten them up so they can get safely spayed in a few months. Welcome Ellette and Suzette!! :)

PIGTURE OF THE DAY: Time for belly tickles!

We have been a busy bunch this week…we said goodbye to three foster piggies who went to their forever home, and took in a new special little guy: meet baby Lucky! :)

He was dumped at a local pet store by an irresponsible breeder (he still has a hole in his ear from having been tagged) and is recovering from multiple bite wounds, one of which abscessed and ruptured soon after he came to live with us…poor baby! :(  But he is all cleaned up and on meds now and is feeling much better, safe and snuggly with his two new foster big brothers who think he’s the greatest thing ever, licking and grooming and chasing him around all day. :)

Pigture of the Day: Nyah!

Cheeky Holly is sticking her tongue out in her holiday photo! Silly girl. XD

Thanks to our friends at The Cozy Cavy for another cute Pigture! We wish them all a very Merry Christmas as they get ready to move back into their rebuilt home after a tornado destroyed it (a tornado that little Holly miraculously survived!)
