There will be no keeping of baby pigs! I'm pretty sure that was in my marriage vows somewhere. SOMEBODY (ahem) is already not too happy to find out that CC has parasites. Our herd max capacity is 4, and right now we're at that!

Parasites! Oh heck some more. Is it mites or something other?

Well, four IS a good number, but 6 sounds so jolly!

Hmmm. Somebody's just not seen the teeny, tiny, crazy cuteness that is baby pigs.

If you're very lucky, she'll pop out only boars and leave you with no dilemma at all.

Mildred -- I meant the babies! She appears perfectly healthy (if maybe malnourished) other than being a too-young mother.

Clairey, I am indeed already hoping that all babies are boars!

Yes, Dr. A's favorite term for babies...parasites. Because they leech all the nutrients from mama. :(. I know you'll take good care of her, tho. And Snickers will too.

Really? Ha! I had no idea we liked the same term. :)

Well we don't really like the term, but I've heard it used before on several ocassons from her

Babies. Sigh...
Snick will make a good nanny boar. He will help CC be a good Mom.
I'm still waiting to see if Rosie Roo has small head syndrome.

I think I'm going with "Cici." I can't keep writing CC, it looks like a dosing instruction.

Also, one of my friends has decreed that we're calling the babies Beebee and Deedee. I think I love it.

To each his own. Our dog came to us named BeeBee. We changed it to Maggie before we got the car doors closed as we left the rescue.

Yes, but her name is Cici! So Beebee and DeeDee make me giggle!

Best wishes to Albert that he'll get better with the adjusted meds. Exciting news about CiCi being pregnant. At least she's getting to spend it in a home where she's going to be showered with nutritious food and have the best chance at an uneventful pregnancy.

I hope Albert's health gets better for you. CiCi will be a good mama pig I'm sure.

I have never laughed so hard.

Congrats on Cici! She is a doll - and mini-pigs! Such exciting times. Pigcam live feed is a must! :)

Get well soon, Snowflake!

CiCi is adorable even with the parasites inside of her! And once those parasites are released all heck will break loose!

Here we go, it's my VERY FIRST pregnancy-related GL question!

Can I give Cici (and, by extension, Snickers) a My Warm Pet disk heating pad thing? Team Snowflake appears to be really enjoying theirs, but I didn't know if something emanating even low-level heat would be good for fetuses.
