    Re: Goodbye My Sweet - RIP Maggie

    It means a lot that you got to cuddle her in the end- she knew how much she was loved, and I am sure that helps them pass on peacefully. My heart goes out to you and Sophia.

    Fresh Food: Re: Salad Bags

    Yes, that's what I mean, lettuce that has been cut and washed should not last as long as some brands of bagged lettuce do. And even a sturdy romaine heart starts to look limp after a week in the...

    In Memory of Lily-Pig

    This past Sunday, my partner and I had to say goodbye to our dear Lily. This is the email that I sent to our family after her passing. She was truly a unique piggy, and we will never forget her....

    Fresh Food: Re: Salad Bags

    I find that lettuce bags are really helpful when we are traveling and someone else is watching the pigs. It's a lot easier to say, "give them half a bag in the morning, and half in the evening"...

    Keeping Warm: Re: Warmth for piggies?

    We live in Northern California, where it does get cold around this time of year. We have a little space heater in the pig room/bedroom/office that sits in the middle of the room and can be turned on...

    Re: Replacing fish oils in veggie diet

    Look for Udo's Choice oil, it's a cold-pressed blend with a good balance of Omega 3, 6 and 9. And it tastes good, too!

    I'm nut a huge nut fan myself, but I make walnut pate to put on salads. I...

    Vegetables: Re: Re-figuring GP Veggie Diet

    I shop in-season... meaning that I get what is cheapest and most abundant, figuring that it's in season. ;) Farmers markets are great for veggies as well, although their fruit prices tend to be the...
  10. Diet: Re: My piggies have stopped eating some of their regular veggies.

    My two pigs are picky and if they don't like a veggie or are bored with it, then they won't eat it. They snubbed asparagus yesterday.

    When I first got Popcorn, he would eat anything as soon as it...

    Fighting: Re: My boars are fighting!

    I have a male and a female, and they sometimes go through phases where they bicker constantly for a few days; not drawing blood, but it gets pretty intense! If they have been living together for...

    Behavior: Re: does moving cause stress on pigs?

    We moved with our two pigs, from Philadelphia to Northern California, two and a half days cross country. We packed everything we owned into one car, and camped our way across the country. I brought...
  13. Cage: Re: What kind of comments do you get about your piggies cage/living arrangements?

    People are always really impressed that I made the cage myself. My cage isn't fancy, just a one story, but I guess it looks cool, especially when I had the pirate themed fleece.

    Most people who...

    Re: Do your pigs "ponder life?"

    Cool, that means popcorn is very comfy! I catch him sleeping with his eyes closed sometimes, and he is so cute, he curls up and squeeches his eyes closed nice and tight. Lily must sleep in the...
  15. Re: My Piggy is OCE (Obsessive Compulsive Eater)

    Maybe the piggie that constantly wheeks is just a noisy pig. Lily wheeks constantly, while Popcorn is quieter. I think that Lily is just more into conversation than Popcorn, being a woman!

    Just because something is labeled "free range" doesn't mean that the meat was treated humanely. For example, most male pigs (in the US) raised for meat are castrated without anesthesia, to keep the...

  22. Re: alfalfa blocks/cubes (compressed) -- opinions, please

    Popcorn and Lily hate the cubes. I've tried them a few times, and each time I later found the cube pushed into a corner.

    Re: Couch Jumping

    He kind of wriggles off, it's not much of a leap. It is more than 8", though. I didn't think pigs were climbers and jumpers; maybe my piggy is imitating my roomie's puppies.
