    Weight Loss: Re: Adopted severely underweight pigs

    Re: My baby Scooter. I will miss you so.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have no other words than what's been said before me, but Scooter was so lucky to have such a loving, diligent and caring owner. It never gets easier. Rest easy, Scooter.

    You could try contacting Piggles cares or All Creatures Rescue. Both organizations are based out of the Toronto area and someone there may be able to give you some other leads.

    Haha thanks! She's a very lovely pig! She's about 3.5 and was quite thin and scraggly when I got her, but she's put on just over 300 grams since coming home and her fur is a lot better.
