Or rather toddler ds does. Wasn't planned but we aquired a little rescue piggy on sunday. We think he is only about 5 weeks old and previous owner has had him a week. He is fit and healthy but very small. He is eating everything in sight though so will son catch up. He is called Trevor.
And today I went and picked him a little friend up. He is 8 weeks old and twice the size of Trevor and his name Rubble.
They have a brand new hutch outside. I would love them to be indoor piggies but have a whippet who would also love to have them indoors. I do have a shed if the weather gets really bad.
I luffs them both already but especially little Trevor.
They are your piggies BTW, you will be the Pig Slave to these adorable new babies. (And this includes worrying about their food, is their diet varied enough, are they poohing and peeing, are they warm enough/cool enough) ' tis worse than DC sometimes.
Did you bond them in neutral territory (please say yes) . Boars are lovely ,snuggly, IMO much cuddlier than sows (sorry sows but you know it's true ), but there are things to consider when your pigs hit "The Terrible Teens" (3-6 months so a way off) mainly that they need SPACE.
You could use your shed as a safe place area, away from the whippetty one and get your DS to make some hidey boxes (two doors) and paper bags (cut the handles off some Primark bags) full of hay to play in.
What colours and coat types are they ? Different types will be different sizes you might find Trevor overtakes his older cagemate.
Yes it was neutral territory. Trevor had been in the new hutch for about an hour before we brought Rubble home. And Rubble came home in a pet carrier Trevor had lived in for a couple of days so he probably smelt quite Trevorish lol. And they went in bottom half first which is all mesh so I could check for any handbags at dawn.
I have a feeling they will spend a fair bit of time bombing around the living room. Whippet crates and am buying some little padlocks so no one can accidentally let her out as keys will be up my arse!
Trevor is mainly ginger and white with one dark patch. Rubble is black white and ginger. They are quite furry without being long haired iyswim.
And am already worrying Trevor is cold. He has spent the last couple of nights at the side of my bed in his temporary accommodation.
I might have had him in bed with me for half an hour this morning. Dp might have a bit of Piglet poo on his side.
