I just had to post it!

I weighed my girls last night, and heres what they were:
Gadget (10 months old) = Last week was 910g, this week 900g (down by 10g)
Tuck (4 months old) = Last week was 420g, this week 450g (up by 30g)
Gimmick (6 months) = Last week was 550g, this week 630g (Put on a massive 80g!)

Gimmick gained 15% of her own body weight in a week! What a PIGGY!

any chance she is pregnant?")
if not, what a glutton

Nar, not a chance, she lives with girls, and I have had her for 4 months now. I am not sure how long they carry babies for but I am thinking that is too long for babies.

Is it that usual then? She isn't even fat lol.

I don't weigh my piggies... is that a bad thing? x

Nar I have only just started weighing them Lexybee, just helps you to monitor their health more accuritly.

Ball park pregnancy length is about 10 weeks, so you should be ok:(|)
Tell her she has some catching up to do - we weighed ours last night and Fat Harry is almost 1550g:x (aged 16 months)

What a monster.

Our last female weighed about 1800g before she died. I couldn't pick her up anymore for fear of her weight injuring her insides. She wasn't obese, we reckon something was growing inside her, she wasn't in pain and it didn't effect her so we left it.
