Can someone please contact me regarding the transfer.

I'm very flexible in doing a person to person transfer.

I need to know the time to be at Cindy's place in CT to pick up the guinea pigs. Obviously this depends on the time/location I should be passing along the guinea pigs to Ericka.

I just emailed you too.
I am flexible all day, so plan your driving when you are most comfortable. We met before just off 495 in a mongo parking lot at a home depot I think it was. Is that ok? LMK.
If I'm delayed, I will try to get back to you. But looks like a long exhausting night. Beth is sicker like crazy tonight, the last 10 minutes just got a lot worse.

Will try to check email often tonight, but if I'm delayed, please know I m doing my best.

A great big THANK YOU to all of you that have helped out with the group of guinea pigs. If you hadn't stepped up and helped out these pigs would still be in the cold garage or maybe even something worse. We weren't in a position at this time to handle this large of a group and it was very upsetting to think what may have happened to them.

Rpaws picked up 8 males today and brought them to Shanachie who will hold onto them until she can bring 4 to Lifelongtails. Sidera picked up 2 females to bring to Maisiesmom.

A happy ending for the bad boy. One of my friends that was helping me sort out the pigs today has fallen in love with Bad Boy. He is now known as "Flint" and will be neutered in a couple of weeks. Then he will be living with 5 females and 2 other neutered males.

The remaining females still need to be sorted out with potential adopters. They won't be leaving until after vet checks and the holidays.

Thank you again everyone!!!!

PHOTOS!!!!
Enjoy.

What's really neat is that their brother, Flint, named above follows the naming trend I started before even photographing them! Long before I read above that Flint is named Flint!



Image
Black Satin who has these really incredible gold highlights. Can't see them here. "Sid" named after Obsidian which is a stone of black with gold or yellowish hue when the edge shines in light.

Image
Roan little guy. I haven't a name yet, thinking of Carney, for a carnival and for carnelian, but maybe that's stupid.

Image
One of the original guinea pigs from the store. Brown Agouti who mentioned he would like the name Jasper.

Image
Orange and lilac(?) satin with white markings.

Image
Black/Orange satin, little peanut of a piggie.

Image
Check out the eyebrow hairs! This little chocolate guy has the neatest eyes.

Image
Lilac/Orange satin with pink eyes. He has no white, and is how I can tell him from the other Lilac. Maybe it's not lilac, I don't know. I can't name the color, suspect you guys know what it is.

Image
The Super Satin guy. He really is stunning. His name is Mica.

Little Girl #1 looks like Lilac/Orange satin, except with a white stripe, and Little Girl #2 looks like Nutmeg.

I took them out this morning to try and coax them to eat. They will not leave the cozy sack, even for food. x.x

I like Carney too. He is a very striking boy, so cute!

They are all very snuggly.

I am so amused!!! They are just beautiful! Just breakdown for me who has which pigs and who they are paired with if they are paired. That way I can attempt to put them on my petfinder site. My husband's computer hates the petfinder admin site and my computer is busted so i'm having some difficulty updating

Two little girls arrived at my place last night. They are like two scared shiney pennies huddled in a snuggle sack. One is red and agouti, the other is chocolate and red with white markings and pretty ruby eyes.

Poor babies have no clue as to veggies but they do go through hay. I'm going to put them next door to my scraggly little sow who inhales her veggies. Maybe they'll get the idea.

If you figure out a way to convince the girls to eat veggies please let me know. I can not get any of the ones that are still at my house to eat anything but hay and pellets. All of them are next to other pigs with hopes that they will learn. I even chop up the veggies into smaller pieces, put them in a bowl right next to their pellet bowls. No luck. I have a single neutered male that inhales his veggies, thinking about putting him in with the girls so he can teach them.

I had no luck with the veggies either. I did convince them to eat Nibble rings, but that is it.

I'm thinking they need to be sitting with another female pig who eats them, and then see her do it and mimic. But they are so scared they need to calm down first.

Also, Mumbo is now at my house until Saturday. He is enormous. But a big 'fraidy-pig. And he does eat like a horse!

I just wanted to let everyone know that the girls were adopted and thriving. They are not quite eating veggies yet but are now showing interest in them. The family that adopted are so wonderful. Its a 12 year old girl and her parents who just have the most paitence in the world. They really did their reserarch on piggies and are spoiling the girls rotten.

The girls names are Belle and Noel. They have a 2x4 c &c with a loft and they love love running to their loft to get their hay. They have also made best friends with the family dog. Who would have thought that such scardey pigs would love a dog!

I'm gonna send some pics to Shanachie to post for me :)

I can't believe they're not afraid of the dog! The poor things wouldn't come out of the cozy sack for two days when they were at my house. x.x

Hooray for the new home! Also, that pic with the water bottle pretty much sums up the girls' obsession. Hehe.

Yep, they'll be changing the fleece in that loft pretty often! The girls certainly tamed down. They obviously aren't afraid of being out of the cuddle cup.
