View Full Version : New owner

02-22-15, 06:45 pm
Just adopted my first piggies today. A lady had a pair of girls on Craigslist and I brought them home.

Unsure what kind of home they were in before. (Previous owners came out and put them in our car). They didn't even tell us what the names were that they previously selected so we have Cinnamon, and Cream. They seem healthy. Just were not very socialized. So me and the kiddos are working on playing with them.

First time piggy owners, and loving it!!

Hooray! Did you check their sex, to make sure they are both girls?

Yep, that's the first thing we did. :)

Welcome! Glad to hear you adopted (or whatever that would be called) instead of buying from a pet store. Please post pigtures of your girls! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
