    General: Re: Romaine lettuce

    According to the veggie chart posted, romaine lettuce doesn't have significantly more calcium than any other lettuce. I don't hesitate to feed romaine lettuce, as part of a wide range of different...
  2. Pigsitting: looking for piggie sitter (for $$) Houston TX Dec 15-Jan 6

    I am leaving town Dec 15 and need a sitter for my two boys Badger and Snowy until Jan 6. This is the first time my
    ads at my university have not drawn students interested in sitting for them,...
  3. Pigsitting: Re: need piggie sitter (for $$) in or near Boulder Colorado July 6-28

    I meant that I was going to offer $70+veg for the whole 3 weeks. Maybe $30 a week would be more appropriate.
  4. Pigsitting: Re: need piggie sitter (for $$) in or near Boulder Colorado July 6-28

    But $30/day for 22 days is $660!!

    I will put a message on our neighborhood email list this week. Last year I did it and got many people offering their children as caretakers (or maybe the...

    Oh no, even with veggies? :( I guess I will have to scrape the barrel and find more...
  6. Pigsitting: Re: need piggie sitter (for $$) in or near Boulder Colorado July 6-28

    I don't know that there is a going rate. Last year I paid $50+veggies to a lady in Boulder for 3 weeks, for one pig. This year I was going to offer $70+veg for two pigs. Life is expensive just at the...

    Success! Thanks bpatters! and thanks for piggie-sitting Badger in TX for all those months when I was on sabbatical!!

    Oh yes please!! I have been trying to either log in or register on Guinea Lynx for about 15 minutes. I thought my username was Cogni there too. I've tried every permutation I can think of that name...

    No only here. I once joined that site but it was years ago, don't remember the user name and password. I have consulted that site for various things in the past, but only posted once I think, when my...
  10. Pigsitting: Re: need piggie sitter (for $$) in or near Boulder Colorado July 6-28

    I worried about boarding them for exactly that reason - I have heard of pigs being put in tiny cages. Such a shame that a place specializing in guinea pigs would do that, though.

    I am looking for a piggie-sitter for my two boys Badger and Snowy while I am out of the country for 3 weeks July 6-28. We are in Boulder Colorado near the University.

    Update on Badger: I could not get him in for an appointment with another specialist before I have to go out of town (early tomorrow). But he is eating a lot more and gaining weight steadily - he is...

    Re: Is this OK for a tunnel?

    It looks great! The only thing I wondered about was the spray adhesive - who knows what's in that. I think I would have used a non-toxic kid's glue like Elmer's glue. But I think the shape and the...

    Conditions: Re: Can't eat hay or hard stems

    Thanks, great advice Billie, as always! I will research a new vet tonight. If we have to drive to Denver, we'll do it (she said without consulting her driver. But he loves Badger too so he will!)

    Conditions: Re: Can't eat hay or hard stems

    I agree that it has to be something with his teeth. I am in Boulder CO and went to the Arapahoe Animal Hospital. A piggie site recommended a Dr. Hayes there, but I got the other exotics vet, Dr....

    Conditions: Can't eat hay or hard stems

    I am very puzzled as to the condition that my Badger has. He started having trouble eating last week - stopped eating lettuce, even his favorite parsley, and his hay. After 2 days of trying to feed...
  18. Conditions: Re: My darling Tufty is so sick, don't know what to do!

    Today is my last day with my baby Tufty. My husband and the vet have convinced me that operations do not make sense at this point. No one knows how long he could live if we just keep treating him...
  19. Conditions: Re: My darling Tufty is so sick, don't know what to do!

    Thank you all so much for your words, it means a lot to me that somebody understands this. I feel I have to hide my grief from the people around me except my husband. They would not understand.
    We...
  20. Conditions: My darling Tufty is so sick, don't know what to do!

    I haven't posted on here in a while. I just got a medical report on my poor little Tufty's CAT scan and I am so distraught.

    Background: Tufty, my abyssinian mix, got a URI in late July and I...

    Joy: Piggies celebrating Groundhog Day

    Behavior: Re: Only Staying In Their Igloo

    They do need a hidey each, but pigloos can be too isolating. Try a hidey that is an upside-down box that has a wide opening in each side, mousehole-shaped holes that are larger than the pig. Or, you...
