Wonder what it is about chin-scritches that sends piggies into a coma? My little boy gets the same look on his face as yours does.

I haven't updated for a little while!
Wednesday I am taking Barnaby to the vets, it has been 5 months since his surgery and I'd like to get an xray of his bladder to see how it is looking.
I am always paranoid that he will get another stone so it will be nice to get a view of inside to know that all is okay.
Part of me doesn't want to get it done, fear of the unknown but the rational side of me says at worst I would want to know if something is wrong and on the other hand if nothing is wrong, I can get some relief.

Here are some pictures of the pigs that I have had up on facebook!

The biggest update of skinny pig land is there has been a furry critter added to their room!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JB00VHagkUs

About a month or so ago I had the opportunity to take in a rabbit that needed a new home. His name is Seymour, he is about 1.5 years old.
I have gotten him neutered, he recovered nicely and has become a new member of the family.
Image

All the piggies are doing well! I had to remodel cages in order to make room for Seymour.
Image

It has been 6 months since Barnaby's stone surgery, he went for a check up a month ago and the vet said he was doing so well.
Image

Ernie requires Perfect Paws ointment on his back feet daily, when I tried to stop the cream his feet went back to really red within 3-4 days. With the cream they look great but without they go back to being irritated. He still has extra padding in his cage and I keep it very clean. Oh well, we get snuggles together daily.
Image

Grover, Calvin and Hobbes are all doing awesome as well :)

Well, I see you have been very busy. Seymour is an adorable new addition. Lots of work for that remodel you did & it turned out great! Glad all the boys are doing well.

Thanks for the update.

Your bunny makes me think fondly of the years I spent as a volunteer at a rabbit rescue down in WA. We used to give the buns empty banana boxes from the local grocery to climb inside and shred.

Love the Calvin and Hobbes Christmas photos. One of them should say *Uh, happy holidays?*

I took some Easter inspired photo's of the boys. Part of me wished I had done this earlier so Grover could have been included.

Calvin and Hobbes have been doing really well. They have a 3by5 c&c cage again now since I've rearranged things.

Image

Barnaby is on metacam daily for arthritis that flared up a few months ago. It had him not eating as much and sitting hunched. He had scared me something awful thinking a bladder stone had returned but the x-ray showed arthritis, which we can deal with.
Image

Ernie has moved up top to be beside Barnaby. Ernie continues to have sensitive feet that some days are better than others. He receives F&M ointment on them twice a day and I make sure to have extra padding. Other than the feet looking bruised and peeling at times, he is doing really well.

I'm sorry about the loss of Grover.
All your other little ones look like they are doing really well. The photos in the basket are really stinking cute!

All your pictures are adorable but I like the one of Seymour. He looks like he's impatiently waiting for something.

Thank you!

Seymour is always waiting for something, a treat or a snuggle most often.

Every few months it is coconut oil time for the pigs!
I don't bath them, so it is great to clean them off nicely and without the stress or risk of drying out their skin. All the boys are used to it and I actually think enjoy the feeling afterwards, I witness popcorns when placed back into their cage.
