Two days ago I put this picture of Michael and Jackson on Piggy Kingdom FB page with caption :"Michael and Jackson say hi :)" and to my surprise it's been viewed by 1682 ppl as of today (and counting), has been liked 29 times and was shared eleven times. Our usual number of viewings averages somewhere around 300 so obvious question arises: where is this interest from? I wouldn't mind repeating it with another picture, problem is I've no clue what caused this sudden rise in popularity. I guess I just need to continue snapping nice pigtures and publishing them on FB, there may be a pattern to discover :)
Funnily enough an edited version of the portrait has not been so popular at all, the raw version as it came out from iphone got all the attention, more 'artistic' one has been quite completely ignored. I prefer the more dreamy portrait of those lovely boys.
Michael and Jackson got a small photo shoot today :)
Those two lovely sows are one of the most neglected Guinea Pigs we ever got left in our care but they are fighters, eating well, almost too well as they chomp down everything I put in front of them, double portions. They do suffer from mange mite infestation and fungal infection, the lighter coloured Piggy shows signs of scurvy and they both are seriously undernourished. I estimate their full recovery to last at least two months, that is when they will start looking healthy again. Hopefully I'll see first signs of improvement with their skins within a week, once mange mites are gone and fungal infection is under control it should be fairly straightforward but they have a lot of coat to grow, as seen on few pictures it's thinned out badly. I'll take pictures every few days to show their recovery, they won't be up for adoption for good few months though, if ever.
New pair of sows is coming up for adoption, Bonnie, the Teddy sow and Bella, tri coloured smooth coated crested beauty. Hopefully they will find their new home soon so we can accept more unwanted Guinea Pigs in future. Bonnie's and Bella's profile page will be ready by the end of the weekend.
