Three bloody guesses which one! hmm

So I wake up this morning, walk into the living room, and shock LittlePigs cage is wide open. The whole front folds up. So I think 'Shit!, then think it can't be too bad because the cage is on top of the sideboard which is about a meter off the ground, no way LittlePig would have the balls to escape.

Then it clicks that the sod hasn't crawled out from under his hay, wheeking for his breakfast hmm <cue slight panic> !

He's not in the bloody cage!

Thinking the bloody worst (broken legs from the jump/fall) , I start looking for him. I see lovely little presents of poo in various places hmm , the odd puddle that has been scampered through and spread hmm , I found the blighter under the sofa, chooken leg out quite content hmm .

20mins later he's caught. I check BigPig who is not bothered and being very well behaved in his pen <probably smug> . Breakfast given, take ds to school.

I start cleaning up...I find:
-Poo everywhere!
-He has chewed a hole in one cushion lesson learnt not to leave it on the floor
-A hole in the bag of hay, hay scattered around the bag hmm
-BigPig has had the correx of his cage chewed
-And suspiscious looking bite marks in my table legs and chairs hmm

LittlePig is fine! No broken bones, no poorly legs, no swelling....how the hell he managed to jump from that height, onto laminate floor and not do him any damage is beyond me.

He is in disgrace!

As is BigPig a little, because normally he would have wheeked the house down. It was silent! hmm

Now, anyone want a pig? Very sweet hmm , lovely cheeky nature hmm because he is going up for adoption! wink

I, of course don't blame myself at all for forgetting to shut the cage

Wow! I am amazed he survived too, but they are quite versatile little creatures re; jumping, as Truffles showed us with his world record. They do get very excited when they escape because they know it is naughty!!! One of our girls once skidadled out of her hutch and UNDER the shed, where she refused to come out for hours, I was beside myself as I had to go to work and couldnt face leaving her - but I blocked up the sides so she couldnt get out, and nothing cat like could get in. I was so worried about her all day. When I got home she was back INSIDE her hutch? How???? Amazing what little nooks and crannies they can squeeze themselves into/out of. Hope he is suitably shame faced <and planning his next great escape!>smile

How do they do it? confused

I honestly thought this morning once I realised he had jumped that I was going to be at the vets this morning....but he is fine and slightly pissed at being put back where he should be! .

He bloody well not be planning another escape! I will be padlocking that cage from now on! wink

It's bizarre- rats and mice can fall quite a distance but GPs are more fragile.
Hopefully LittlePig will have learned from his escapades and think twice before jumping from great heights. But what's the chances of that? grin

You are going to have to pen that adoption post very carefully.
A bit caveat emptor but not deliberately lying misleading.

You know like horse adverts

Ideal First Pony, bombproof -needs a rocket up his arse and don't think you'll get anything more than a trot
Character- psychopath
*Good to catch/shoe/load*- just everything else is impossible
Not a novice ride -killed his last 2 riders
Fizzy- practically unbroken
*Good do-er*- one blade of grass and you've got laminitus from Hell.

Ha ha, I can imagine your shock and worry. Pigs can be incredibly cheeky. DBoar 2 seems fairly fearless and has come close to jumping off the bed or sofa. I think little pig was lucky to land safely.

Sorry to hear about the damage to your furnishings though. I find they only chew the good furniture. Won't touch anything from Argos or MFI! :-)

70 i am a expert at reading through the lines and writing them being a horse person as well. My advert will be as follows:

Very handsome Guinea Boy available for adoption!
Beautiful colour, 7 months old. So far , so true

Lovely cheeky inquisitive nature. Padlock him in anywhere you put him. Chews tables/chairs/cushions/bags...Do not give him access to anything that will enable him to take over the world hmm

Good to handle ...as long as you don't dare touch his feet or steal his parsley

Very clean and tidy for the 5 mins he is put in a clean cage

In excellent health amazingly .

Would make a fantastic family pet! it would be easier to have another child

What d'ya reckon? grin

KRITIQ the tables from IKEA....I'm not that bothered wink , had he had got into my bedroom and chomped on something in there then he would be on his way to piggy heaven because I would have throttled the bugger wink

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 16-Nov-12 19:09:53

Very independant character so with much regret I have to let him strike out on his own Please Please take the blighter NOW .Him and his adoptive brother are at each other like knives

Would make an ideal stud guinea-pig. Fertile and entire Maybe being chased round by a few females would teach him a lesson and wear him out

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 16-Nov-12 19:12:34

Or if that fails to shift him have them flocking to him....

Tastes like chicken and would do a good couple of meals grin

BonkeyMollocks Fri 16-Nov-12 19:15:32

grin

Stud Pig? Hmmm, I can almost guarantee that would put him in his place, being chased around by the laydees, however I would never ever wish his spawn on any guinea or human mum wink
