I sat in that glass place for what felt like forever. Then a nice lady and man came, and took me to what was to be my third home. They played with me a lot when I first came home with them! Oh it was so fun! I felt truely loved! Then they went to work, and I just kinda sat there. In my tiny cage. But it was okay. Maybe my people would love me again someday.
But they never did. I was just a burden to them. The woman found out she was pregnant, and one month after they got me-put me in her hands and we went somewhere else. This time I was sad. And this place never felt like home. It was called a shelter. I had no brothers, and not a lot of humans.
Then another human came, I bet it was going to clean out my cage again. But who cares? I'd rather sit in my own stuff. These people don't care about me! But this human was different. She was gentle and loving with me. She didn't put me down on the floor right away. She held me. She kissed me. She LOVED ME! I was happy, and she could never leave me. I hid in the crook of her arm. She took me, and we left.
I was in a cage that was bigger than what I'd ever had before, but it was still kinda small. Oh well! SHE LOVES ME! She pets me everyday. I'm home. I have hay to munch on. I have cool water to sip. I have human contact. This place has to be my forever home. But what if she forgets about me? What if she goes away? What if she decides not to love me anymore?
One day-my human packs me up to go. She's still petting me tenderly, and loving me, but we're leaving. I thought she loved me. I can't start over again! For a three month old I've had a tramatic life! I thought she loved me.
We went back to the shelter place. I hated her. She was my human. How could she do this to me? She loved me. I was set down in the same pen that they always set me in when they cleaned my cage. But she was still there. She still petted me. I still hated her. She's going to leave me.
Then I saw the most beautiful thing ever. He was bigger than little old me-he was called Larry. He had just gotten to the sheler. After all the things he'd been through in life-he was still happy. I needed to be like him. I really liked him. He really liked me. My human was watching us so closely. She didn't leave me yet.
After a while, my human packed Larry and I up. At least he was going with me wherever I go now.
We came back to my cage! We were at my forever home. She still loved me. I loved her too! She didn't leave me or abandon me like everyone else in my life has. She showed me to Larry. I love him. He loves me. He's my best friend!
She treated us for mites, and we are beggining to be scratch free. She has expanded our cage, and has promised to make it even bigger STILL!
I love my human. She gave me a chance. I still live with her. She still loves me, and pays attention to me. She gave me Larry. I am so thankful. She saved my life, and tells me I add a lot to hers!
~save a life. adopt a shelter pet. love a shelter pet.
My dear human told us one day that we were getting another brother. I did'nt know what that meant. "What's a brother?" I tried to ask, but she didn't understand.
She left again, and comes back with this funny looking fellow. She says "Boys! This is Sammy!"
"What's a Sammy?" I tried to ask. But again, she didn't understand. It's okay, I didn't expect her too.
I think Sammy's like me. He has crazy hair that goes everywhere though. He's smaller than Larry, but bigger than me. He's still a baby too...sorta. I talk to him quite a bit. But sometimes he ignores me. Other times he'll talk back. Larry hollers at him a lot. I think he's excited to meet Sammy. Our human says it will be a while...
STAY TUNED...in two weeks-Sammy (might) move in!
I was just going over to see him, do a little teeth chattering like I do to Larry and Sammy. Ha! He chatters back, and doesnt' run away, unlike my other cage mates. UG That's it buddy! Now, he has a bite on his nose! Ha!
You think that would hurt, you think that would teach him. I dominate this cage. But no, again, he doesn't back down. In fact, he comes right into my pigloo. MY PIGLOO. Francis now has a bite on his back. HA!
I'm irritable just chillin' out in my pigloo right? Larry thinks he can come in. I usually don't mind him, but today I was feeling like crap. The other pigs were annoying me. So I teeth chatter towards Larry, hoping he'd leave. He just plops down beside me. Needless to say. His ear is now mangled. HA!
So, i bit Sammy for the heck of it. He's always been annoying. I search around the cage for him. Ah ha! Easy enough to find- eating hay as always! I bite his back. I wanted some hay, and he was in the way.
My human comes and discovered what I've done. She says there's no way I can keep doing this. My days of fun and world...well, cage domination are over. I now live in a petstore cage all alone. I guess it's not that bad. I get lots of extra cuddles. And TONS of extra floor time. But I'm all alone. I long for human companionship only, because those pigs are driving me nuts. They all get along together great. Especially Larry and Francis. They're like Larry and I used to be. I guess that's why I dislike him so much.
My human says Larry and Francis Cannot! be separated, so it won't ever be just Larry and I again! I want to hump something now!
