Part 2:There and back again - A piggy slave's tale
A new year, a new thread!
Let me introduce my herd one more time..
Type: Agouti rex
Character: Chilled out and loves humans, but is a bit anti social with pigs. She was the alpha female up until a year ago.
Current health:Arthritis, but overall in good health and mobility.
Age: 3 in early Feb
Character:Inquisitive, cheeky and not at all pig like. Is the most active and curious of all my pigs.
Current health:Perfectly fine!
Name:Squee (black) & Chubbles (ginger), our mum & daughter team.
Age: Squee is 3 & Chubbles is 5
Type:Squee is a black self sheltie & Chubbles a tri-colour sheltie.
Character:Squee is alpha female and can remind the others of that with quite some vigour lets say. Chubbles is a scaredy pig and rather follows then leads. She's very human shy.
Current health: Chubbles is perfectly fine. Squee has a benign lump that the vet left as it isn't effecting her & she was recently trialled with a chemical spay due to having OC.
Apart from them we also have a hamster named Mushi, a blue tongue Skink named Lilly, 2 leopard geckos Jake & Marceline and a whole array of inverts.
On top of that I also work at Bristol Zoo as an animal care tech :), so animals are definitely a big thing in our household!
Mildred - 3? Arewe missing someone? ;)
Scruffles was being a doll last night and kept me snuggly company. I've been struck down by a nasty flu for a week now and only now slowly on the mend.
I even forgot a certain little lady's 3rd birthday :(
Hopefully I'll make it up to her later this week!
She's one of the pigs I care for at work, but this morning she was found with fractured bottom incisors for unknown reasons which the vet then removed.
Doped up on painkillers and poorly I have to force feed her around the clock until she's ready to eat CC on her own.
Wish me luck!
