She only has one pig, and she has had him for a while. While it is sad that he is alone, what if she can't afford the care of another pig? I don't think she has ever taken him to the vet and I am giving her links, links, and more links on care and food. She was told by the pet store NOT to give him anything green. Ugggg. I try not to be too pushy...just give her the info.
When you hear a loud *rip*, it means they managed to get the prize!
Except one of my portly pigs. He just eats the end of the lunchbag.
I also get the Oxbow and my bedding sent from Foster & Smith. Four 4 cubic foot bags of aspen and E0 lbs of Oxbow pellets every month make for a nice fat gift card for our FedEx guy at Christmas :)
Here's me holding them at my mom's office where I picked them up.
Then in the crate on the way home.
And here's the first girl underneath the cozy cavy.
And the other girl sitting in the sad attempt of a hay holder I made, but she seems to love it!
I used an old hamster cage bottom as their kitchen I'm going to see if that works out. I just wish it was a little longer so it would cover the whole area.
Oh and the hay I have right now is Kaytee brand, along with the food unfortunately. I'm still waiting for my shipment of hay from KM to get here and I'm going out to buy Oxbow Alfalfa pellets today.
Those little ones are very cute.
As for them not drinking, I think it took my girls a day or two to figure out where the water bottle was. Seems like they discovered it late at night when the house was quiet. But I'm a night owl so I heard when they found it.
Even now, if we go to someone else's house, they don't drink as much.
They've been using the bottle now and eating their veggies and food. I decided to name the other one Sundae because she reminds me of vanilla icecream with chocolate syrup and some caramel as well. Penny and Sundae don't match in names but I think they have a nice ring.
Both of them were out more today so I took them out of the cage and held them for a while in their bed. They weren't very active just kind of hung out and sniffed around. Sundae is so vocal it's adorable, although I'm not sure exactly what her sounds mean, I think sometimes it might be bad. I looked up what they were earlier but sometimes it's hard to distinguish.
