    Just Told My 2 Y.o. Has Tumor, Needs Put Down

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum. I have 2 boars who we adopted a little over a year ago and are now 2 years old.

    Today I Said Goodbye To My Mimbles :( Any Tips On Keeping Her Friend Happy Now She's Gone X

    Today I had to say goodbye to my beautiful rescue piggle Mimbles. She had lumps on her, was losing her fur and her heartbeat was very slow. Absolutely heartbreaking to see but I know my baby isn't in pain now. Now my worries lie with her best friend Pip who is now alone. She has a fleece that...

    Solo Piggy

    Hey guys,I wasn't sure where to post this one so I'm going with daily care! I'm a Mum to a solo pig, Sunny. Yep, that's right, I have one boar. I know it's ideal to keep two pigs or more for company, and I'll admit I was worried as to how he would get on by himself. My intention is to wait...

    I got a piggy from petsmart yesterday and sure seemed aclimated to people and she really is surprisingly unafraid and curious towards me and my hubby. Tonight before bed time she went wild in her cage running and hopping all over in it. I don't know if she was afraid or what frightened her. Did...
