Getting some pigs

Well, I saw an ad of freecycle for two free pigs. I always hate when people give away animals, that means they really don't care who they go to. So I emailed and am actually getting them. Poor guys, they are in the worst cage, with no hay or anything.

here is a picture


I have to get them out of there, so I am picking them up tonight.

Im back! Supposedly they are boys, but im pretty sure that they are actually girls. They are really cute! Kindof friendly too. Except, they are now fighting with each other. I made a cage for them real quick, its larger than thier last, but they seem pretty mad. Hopefully they will calm down. They can hear my other girls, so thats probably why they are on edge. They seem healthier than I had thought too. Hopefully after quarantine, they will be able to get along with my girls during floor time (if they really are girls). I don't think I will house them together. I will have to make my cage alot larger for that!

Anyway, im waiting on pictures to upload, then I will post them!

Squeaky and Gizmo are their names right now. I might change them.

They are pretty tame actually.

I don't know whats up with them right now though, they got in a really bad fight a minute ago. I mean, standing on back legs, hair flying!

Sure, I can post some. I have had many different cages, I get addicted to redoing them, lol.

I can't wait to start making my new cage. It should turn out really cool. *sigh* I am at work right now though.

This was one of my favorites, but I don't have the extra room in my new home for it.

I'm so glad you have them now Amber. Those poor things. I hope they don't fight anymore. It would stink if you had to separate them.

I got a valentine!

Me too. If they fight too much, I will just try a buddy bath. That worked for my other girls, lol.

They are really sweet girls. I can't wait to get home and see them again!

Yep, they are ferret tubes. I ordered them from critterstore.com. They are really easy to clean because they come apart.
