Success!

I am very happy to announce that I have had my first successful rescue! Opie (aka Ziggy) and Smores just went home with their new Mommy and Daddy. Their new Mom works with me and came to see them (and drop off presents) on Friday right after I sprung them from the SPCA. She fell for Smores. Her husband agreed that he would like some piggies. So she called me today and they came for them. I am so HAPPY!! They have the best possible home. I know they are going to be totally spoiled. Oh and you may see her joining the site. She had already checked on my question about popcorning.
Both piggies were so at ease with their new parents that I was jealous. They weren't like that for me! Opie/Ziggy was even kissing his new mommy's hand!
It has been a great Christmas!

I spoke with their mom today and they had a great first night. She was hand feeding them their red peppers this morning. They like that. I just know they will be spoiled piggies when I piggie sit at the end of the month.

They are both cuties. I am so happy that they will be living happily ever after! Their mom is already checking out the NIC and coroplast enclosures. I knew she would not want to keep them in the cage they are now in. It's too small for 2 piggies. It's the kind they sell at the store for a bunny. I bought it when I first got Tabby. I knew NOTHING at the time. I have come a long way since January.

Just as a reminder to anyone else that decides to do their own rescues...

Most adoption centers and facilities state in their contract that if you are going to rehome the animals, it has to be surrendered to them.
