View Full Version : Introductions - Here Goes ...

03-31-14, 07:31 pm

I've been lurking in the forums for a bit to learn as much as I can about what's new with piggy ownership and care. I haven't been a guinea pig owner since way back in 2001. I decided it was time to be an owner again.

I got a pair of boars from Craig's List - a couple was re-homing them (who already owned other piggies - for some reason the wife was allergic to the new ones). I subsequently found out they had re-homed them from a mom with kids that couldn't take care of them anymore (also from a CL ad). Apparently their very small 1.5 ft x 2.5 ft cage was filthy when the couple picked them up. So, the boys went from that home, to the couples home, to mine in less than a week.

They lived in the small cage for just about a week, long enough for me to get the money and time together to build a 2 grid by 8 grid C&C, with fleece and Uhaul pads, etc.

They've been doing better and better as each week goes by. Here's Lenny and Squiggy!

Aww I'm so glad to hear it. Sounds like they definitely found a good home.

Welcome to the forum. Lenny and Squiggy are very handsome boys. I love their names. Is Lenny the tri-colored one?

Welcome to the forum! Your pigs are beautiful, and I'm glad you were able to get them out of that cramped environment!

Thank you for the warm welcomes.

Yes I'm glad I got them when I did. I'd like to think they're living well now. They sure act like it. ��

Indeed Lenny is the tri color. His personality (and size) screamed Lenny to me. ��

So my little guy in black is now named Buddy - quite the talker, he is!

And my newest guy, well, doesn't have a name yet. I just got him three days ago. He's approximately 7 weeks old. My first long hair...

Aww they are so cute love the names.

Thanks! I have a feeling the new guy will have a name that ends in "Y" as well. Just a hunch. ;)

Your boys are adorable!

Thanks for the comments. My new guy is settling in really well. I still don't have a name. He kinda reminds me of a grumpy character so I may go that route. He's also black and white which reminds me of black metal bands so I may borrow a musicians stage name for him. :cool:
