Someone wrote me offering to fund operations for the 2 affected pigs if it would save their lives.
I want to make it clear that there will be no medical solution if these two pigs are determined to be carriers of S. zoo or another similar pathogen.
Unless we could find someone to keep these pigs in a bubble for the rest of their lives, away from other animals and children (immediately)...but that's just not realistic.
Snowflakey, it baffles me too. Pigglies collected a bunch of volunteer items and sold them at her local swap meet to benefit the rescue.
She also made some darling clay figurines and put them on EBay, and that's how she raised the money to get an x ray for her foster piggy, Phoebe.
So we have elected her to be our Marketing Director. She's also on our board of directors. Not bad for someone fresh out of high school. We luv ya, Pigglies!
You can see some of the clay things on the website I made for them:
Not many of them sold at the swap meet, but a few did. And lots of the computer stuff sold.

Now here is the stupid question, is FIMO clay the stuff that used to be called Sculpey? I made a bunch of Sculpey Pokemon figurines with my kids a few years ago (pretty funky looking.... ).
Great job Pigglies!

I used Granitex for the grids on my C&C cage which is why they bent. I tried it again with FIMO and they stayed straight.
