Hello Folks
Don't know if any of you remember or even care about the plight my lonely Pig Howard has been facing since I got him to help my daughter's pig, Tarka, after I diagnosed him with depression!

If you have no life :)) please refresh your memory by checking out my previous posts

Well - I was cleaning them out today and was greeted by the usual wheeks and purrs by T-Man and Tony Harrison as I put fresh hay and stuff into their hutch.
While cleaning out Howard's gaff I became down and depressed! He was like a beaten pig - no life, joy or sound. Now it's getting colder he no longer has the interaction of squeaking throuh the bars of adjoining runs at the happy gay couple!

So here I find myself again - a grown 40 year old geezer with a depressed pig - while my pre-teen daughter, whose yearning for all things cuddly got me here, was out clothes shopping with her Mum - with a depressed solitary guinea pig.

"OK" I said to myself - cos I do talk to myself......and I answer!

OK Howard is now in the position that Tarka was so I'l do what I did for Tarka and find him a blokey mate with no hormones to share valuable bloke time with.
As luck would have it I phoned our local Small Animal Rescue Centre and 30 mins later Howard was paired up with a 7 week old lad called Bollo!

Purrs and chatting and snuggling have returned to Howard's world - Bollo sems to have latched on to Howard......Tony Harrison and Tarka are thriving since T's operation - so all's good in Hendrix's pig world :))


Until I found out Bollo's toe hanging off issues mallethead
Searching here I reckon he's got a good old genetic dose of polydactly - Precisely why I'm opposed to animal breeding and probably why he ended up in a rescue centre.

Hopefully it'll be something he'll learn to live with and won't lead to more installments on my Vet's yacht :p

Anyhoo! I now have 2 hutches (and outside runs) with a pair of lads in each - hopefully they'll be happy and squeaky for a few years to come !

I've just read your previous threads and the way you've worded it is hilarious you really should put that in a book lol.
I've got 2 little boys who've been together for the past 2 months and for the past couple of weeks I've been having the same problem, one of them has become a little evil grrrr he attacks the other one and me, in fact he bit me so hard last week he drew blood and I could have cried it bloody (no pun intended) hurt.
