Now that he is gone, maybe this chronicle will finally gain him some of the attention and love he deserved. If not, at least a few other pig lovers can mourn for him with us.
I'm so sorry Slim. Why did I not just adopt you when I fostered you. You got along great with Rocky...
When someone walked up to their C&C, he would stuff Rocky into a pigloo and stood outside of it. He'd look at you as if to say, "Yea? Can I help you?", like in that second picture. Look closely and you can see little Rocky in the back.
He was a very special, one of a kind pig. Why life was so shitty for him, I don't know.
He had an attitude that no one could forget once they'd met him. Poor guy. He didn't deserve such a crappy beginning... or a crappy end. At least he had some good times with you and Rocky, and with some other fosters. But he had so much more left to live.

I still have in my mind the image of him being brought out to me in the cardboard box at the shelter. I went there looking for a friend for Meg after calling and being told there was a female there. I looked in the box and he looked up at me. I picked him up and saw a very large pair of testicles. But I decided to take him home anyway. And yes, I did spend a great amount of time trying to wash the himi off him before I realized. He was very dirty because they found him running around in a park.
I'm going to write a memorial page for Slim and Frac to put on the website. Since the family disposed of them without asking us, we don't even have that closure. Normally pigs in our rescue who pass away get a little urn or wooden box with a plaque stating their name. I really wish we could have that for them.
If anyone has any ideas for the memorial page, or anyone who knew Slim and Frac would like to contribute something, please let me know. I definitely am going to say something about not leaving guinea pigs outside unattended.
