thanks everyone! Sorry for the delay.. manic weeks and with Bowie and Alan Rickman's deaths I've been a bit down of late.

But here they are in their glory :)



and Kedema Bowie:


Bowie is suspected to be pregant as I feel 3 oblong masses in her abdomen and her nipples have grown in the week we've had her. She's also constantly thirsty.

She'll be scanned next week to be sure.

Oh my gosh, they're adorable! Tanuki-chan reminds me of a wild squirrel I taught to eat from my hand years ago. Congratulations on the new little ones.

Well it's been confirmed today! Scan showed three skeletons and three heartbeats!

Fingers crossed they remain alive and healthy!

I hope everything goes as well as it possibly can with the pregnancy.

I love Tanuki-chan, she reminds me of one of my very first pigs, Gip (I couldn't think of a better name at the time). He was a funny old chap. He always weighed less than my other, no matter how much he ate, and always looked sleek. Until recently he was the longest living pig I had. Here's hoping to a long an happy life for Tanuki-chan and Kedema Bowie!

Tanuki-chan's dark nostrils are adorable and those are magnificent whiskers.

Bowie looks like she has potential for mischief. :) I hope she has a healthy pregnancy. I can't wait to see what her little ones will look like. Are she and Tanuki-chan sisters?

Second, I love the new pigs. Good luck with the pregnancy! Will you keep the babies?
Good luck vibes from the US.

They are beautiful. Good luck with Bowie and her babies. I hope all works out well. There is nothing cuter, you know, than fresh pups. :-)

Almost three weeks ago since the pups started kicking and still noting. Bowie weighed 400g when we adopted her in january and she is now 780g.. o.O
C'mon pups, time to run freee ;)

Tanuki on the other hand has attached herself to me.. my poor OH, it's his pig, but she just prefers me for some reason *cough* pig queen *cough*

I think that's the reason my OH chooses pets like snakes and bees, lol. He's positive I'll steal their hearts otherwise.

A hahahaha, but! I won the heart of his blue tongued skink too! 😂

Bowie has popped! I couldn't be there as she did it late afternoon during work hours, Sony the time we got home there were two perfect little mini pigs in with her.

There was some worry about the third not coming, but the vet reckons we miscounted. Looking at the size of them it makes sense! I probably thought a butt was another head... No wonder they kicked at me hahaha.

All three are doing fine. Pups have Bowie facial features, but they are smooth coated and white/silver agouti patched! One has massive ears like Truffle and her colours - how freaky is that?

I'll post up photos later today!
