I have a male piggie and his cage mate has just passed away. He seems a little confused, I'm not sure that he understands that his buddy is gone. He is adventurous and likes to explore and play but his deceased friend was always the friendlier of the two - he would always come up to greet me first and then my other boy would follow.
So, some questions that I need answered!
How can I bond more with this piggie seeing as his leader/role model is gone? He can be quite shy sometimes.
What toys can I give to him to keep him entertained while I'm out?
Does he need a companion? Bear in mind that he is a 3.5 year old male pig and I think that finding him a friend would be hard as they may fight. Would he get on with a new friend?
I'm giving him lots of love and cuddles and I may put him in a pen with a rabbit to give him some social time tomorrow.
