The pair of Piggies on the pigtures are Ginger & Bread. They were reserved 2 weeks ago due to be picked up today in the evening but as I haven't had a confirmation from the person who wanted to adopt them it looks like they will be available again. They got their bath today anyway and now they are grazing outside in a small pen :)
Four days into January and we have 4 new rescue Piggies and 1 Bunny. The rabbit will be photographed tomorrow, pictures of the Pigs below.
If you can, please donate any amount that suits you, we don't want to say no to any Guinea Pig or Rabbit that needs to be taken in, whatever is the reason, in this case the owners couldn't cope with 2 pairs of boars who fell out with each other and the Bunny who was squashing their Netherland Dwarf pet rabbit, on top of that one job was lost in the family and pet budget had to be minimized. Quite often Piggy Kingdom is the last resort, tomorrow we'll have 3 more Piggies coming in. We want to be able to say 'yes, we can accept them' next time sm asks. Please donate!
Heracles, he came in the same cage with Herbert, the silver agouti chinchilla marked boar but they definitely don't get on with each other at all and should have been separated ages ago. Heracles has a developing bumblefoot, looks like an injury caused by the boys fighting, he was treated for it with few drops of tea tree oil mixed in with olive oil. All of them were treated for parasites as a precaution anyway, though Heracles needs a full treatment, he's also mildly infested.
Herbert, silver agouti chinchilla marked boar with longer hair on his bum. He's worse off out of the 4 'H' boys. He was in the same cage with Heracles, the Teddy boar, and got bitten by him severely... Large scab on his ear, numerous fresh scabs on his back, around his mouth, runny nose, he's the thinnest of them all and has worse mange mite infestation. I'm glad they all are in Piggy Kingdom now!
Helmut, he's very skittish but that could be caused by mange mites (flaky skin and small scratch scabs on his back) and most probably fungal infection on his nose. He didn't get on with Heliodor and they are separated. It looks like he has a bit of roaning on him otherwise he's just a black and white very handsome Pig.
Heliodor, lovely boy, he's got a white marking on his head otherwise it's a very strange colour, golden, sort of...some of his coat is agouti colour with dark tips and in places golden looks more like very dark buff and there is no clear distinction between agouti and the rest, so no patches, it's all mixed in. He's very unique!
