My crazy piglet, Marley, has popcorned a bit too far this time, and has damaged a ligament in his front leg! He's hobbling around on three legs at the moment, but it's not stopping him from chasing Frankie around the cage for the last piece of carrot. A daily dose of Metacam (and a few extra cuddles) and I'm sure he'll be on all four legs again in no time.

Please send healing wheeks!

Healing wheeks from me! Please brace yourself that the strained ligament can stay dodgy for some time and that Marley may re-injure himself (though hopefully not quite as badly as the first time) with his antics.

Well he's still hobbling around today, but I don't think it's bothering him too much. I've made some adjustments to the cage to stop him from climbing, and hopefully he'll be on the mend soon!
