Part 1:From cavy ignorant to cavy slave
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..

Name: Scruffles
Age: 6
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.
Health history
Current health:Arthritis, but overall in good health and mobility.
Adopted? Yes.
Image



Name: Nibbler
Age: 3 in early Feb
Type:Himalayan cross
Character:Inquisitive, cheeky and not at all pig like. Is the most active and curious of all my pigs.
Health history
Current health:Perfectly fine!
Adopted? Yes.
Image



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.
Squee:Health history
Chubbles:Health history
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.
Adopted? Yes.

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!

Lynx, is there any way I can still order a calendar? I know I'm very late, but my end of the year has been crazy hectic, hence my lack of posts as well.

Alden, thanks :) They chose where to sit themselves. Clever pigs ;)

Yes, you can still order a calendar! Shipping rates just went up (drat!) but still can do. Fill out an order form if you're interested.

Oh scruffles has my heart, she is just darling. Whenever I see her picture, I just want to pet her and see what that beautiful fur feels like.

I think Nibbler's lips are just begging for a kiss :)

Welcome back, girlies!

I caught up on your chronicles and I just love your pigs. I think Scruffles is my favorite, but Chubbles has to be my favorite guinea pig name ever, lol. They are all so precious.

Yay! I can't wait to see more photos BE. I'm also so very jealous of your job - it's something I've always dreamed of doing!

I've too been meaning to get a Guinealynx calendar but I will have a wait until next month unfortunately, I think!

Poppycorn - it was pure luck & 3 years volunteering that got me in really! Those kind of jobs tend to circulate within the company first and then go public. Volunteering is a sure way in, although nothing became available for 3 years for me.

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!

And I hope you feel properly better soon :)

Sidera, it's a song by Morrissey ;) I'm a bit of a fan.. heh. I always sing this song to the pigs as it's so apt.

Lunatic, thank you :) Scruffles is all fluff really, very little fat left on her in her older years :)

Mildred, no worries ;) and I'm slowly mending at long last!

This weekend we have a poorly lodger named Ariel.
Image

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!
