When Marley was wheeking in alarm at me in Thistle's arms Roo pottered over to check on him. She's such a great wife.
- Cavies 'n Cobwebs
Such a lot seems to have happened since my last posts, but life goes on and things can appear brighter over time. This certainly seems to be the case when little furry friends appear back in your life - even if they weren't entirely planned!
The reason for this is apparent in this thread in Placement which took an unexpected turn and ended up with more than anyone expected. :o)
So, for a quick summary, Thistle Cavies have mum called Raggedy Anne (Rags) and son Horlicks; Jaycey has dad Podrick (also Rags' brother) and I have son Barley and daughter Whisky.
The first picture I was sent was of the new additions that arrived in the early hours of 9th June 2014.
Top - Barley, middle - Horlicks (and rehomed brother behind) and front - Whisky.
All piggies, mum, dad and pups have a strong family resemblance with the ridge of hair along their backs, tufty bits on the sides and hair coming to a point on their heads which has become more apparent as they have grown. :o)

While not entirely sure about getting piggies again and just having spent much of my redundancy money last year on doing up my flat, the thought of hay, bedding material and piggy poop finding its way into the freshly decorated recesses of my carefully refurbished flat and new light coloured carpet didn't entirely appeal to be honest!
But then this little chap needed a forever home... and I volunteered for transport duties. He is the dad of the litter while mum Raggedy Anne was actually his sister! (Oh, the shame of it!)
Podrick as he is now known and rehomed with Jaycey, spent a few days with me and that was the catalyst. Helped no doubt, by some very persuasive photos being sent from Thistle Cavies!
Initially these two brothers, later named Horlicks and Barley were to be homed together.
And their little sister Whisky was on her own with mum Raggedy Anne.
The 3 little boars were separated at 21 days to make sure history did not repeat itself yet again. :o)
But oh, they missed their mum!
