He's come such a long way since I got him. He was such a sad little pig when I went to pick him up from his previous owner. He was in a laundry bin which I think he was in for a while in a dark and musky unfinished basement. :( I remember picking him up and he was so scared. His little eyes were all red and inflamed. Upon bringing him home I saw that he had a big bloody gash on his back and lice. His nails weren't clipped in so long.
Now he's my big special boy! He's gained weight and he's so happy now! I really think he does know that I saved him. He seems so grateful for everything. He's shy, but he's such a little love bug. He's so cuddly and loves his kisses. I can't get over how far he's come. <3
He's such a good friend to Penny and puts up with her naughty ways.
I am so thankful for my little choco boy. I hope we have many more anniversaries together! <3
Happy Pigaversary, Sheldon!!
Here are a few pics of Penny so she doesn't feel left out!
Before the cage was a 3x4 C&C. It stayed that way for about a year but it was becoming too much of a hassle to clean. I decided to make a 2x6 instead, with a designated kitchen area. The 2x4 of the cage is fleece, and the remaining 2x2 has loose bedding. I'm hoping that it will keep the fleece cleaner and that we can go longer between cleanings instead of the usual every second day.
So far, Penny and Sheldon don't seem to mind the change. I think they are liking it. When Penny first stepped on the bedding she was a bit unsure. She hasn't been on loose bedding for awhile. I'm not sure what she was on before but I know it was not fleece. Shelly doesn't seem phased by the change at all. They are both napping right now.
Anyhoo, here are some pictures!!
