    Re: I have a new piggie!!!



    Adoption Pricing
    Short haired GPs $15.00
    Long haired GPs $20.00.

    Baby GP prices. Babies are about half the size of an adult GP. Keep in mind that their markings won't be as exact as an adult.
    Baby Short Hair $8.00
    Baby Long Hair $10.00


    My GPs are made to be anatomically correct (unless requested otherwise) all male GPs made are neutered before they leave my yarn box.

    I have 2 ways to do abbys.

    With yarn hair (cost $20) This pig is actually an Abruvian (notice the longer butt hair)


    Or Abby's with an ultra fine hair that is super soft and cuddly. These GPs often come out a bit larger then normal (cost $25). Not all colors are available with this type of yarn so I may not be able to do all GP colors



    To make you a Cuddly GP I need several pictures of your pig so I can get the markings right. Keep in mind that this will be a representation of your pig and not an exact match. I also need to know the eye color if you want custom colored eyes or you have the choice of pure black eyes (creates a cute doll look)



    If you have a long haired pig and trim it let me know if you want the trimmed look, that your picture will reflect, or the untrimmed hair.

    The GPs are adult life size. All Gps come with hay in their mouths so they don't get hungry during their trip to you. The hay can be taken out of their mouths once they arrive.

    I take paypal,credit cards, money order, check (it has to clear before I send out your pig) and will ship overseas. To pay by credit card go Here

    Shipping cost within the United States will be $4.60 (for the first pound (2 adult GPs) for priority mail with tracking. 3 or more dolls may have extra shipping cost. Overseas shipping will be more, ask for a quote.

    A portion of the money will be sent to Cavy Spirit to help with Teresa's rescue and the running of this fabulous site.

    I don't know if my Roo would be considered a baby. He's about 3 months. He's alot smaller than the others. You mentioned they are less when smaller?

    I edited the pricing post to reflect baby prices too. It's at the top of the post.

    Re: I have a new piggie!!!

    Just PM me pictures and let me know all the info.

    I won't charge extra for extra large Piggies. If people want they can also measure the length of their GP and I will try to get it as close to the exact length as I can.

    Are the piggies washable? I know our live ones shouldn't be bathed too often, but then again, they can groom themselves for the most part.

    Re: I have a new piggie!!!

    The Cuddly Cabies are washable. The yarn I'm using for them is acrylic yarn and the stuffing is Polyfill which is hypoallergenic. This means that people with allergies can hug and love these pigs all they want. They will not shrink either and don't easily stain.

    If someone is planning on getting one of these GPs for a child under 3 make sure you let me know. I will embroider the eyes on instead of using the plastic eyes. The plastic eyes are well done and should not come off but accidents can happen and I would want to remove the choking potential.

    I am also willing to make the pigs in fanciful colors. So if you want a pink Pig, rainbow peruvian, blue dutch, purple dalmation, etc...I will be happy to do it.

    Re: I have a new piggie!!!

    I am gonna show you 2 pics that I probably will do once I get enough money. One is Porky for my mom in law. She is in the hospital possibly with another cancer. Porkey is her favorite since we got him.

    The other is my precious Holly who was only 3 wks old when she passed away in my arms.

    Here is Porky



    Here is Holly. She also has a white butt. This is the only pic I have of her but I have one of her butt when she was feeding off of her mum down at the bottom of the first 3.



    Holly is the tiny little black baby under her mum who is the white piggie. See her cute lil white bum. so cute.

    Re: Crochet Cuddly Cavies for adoption

    Hmm..I'd like one as soon as I get the money together. It might depend on the shipping costs. I wouldn't mind having a Shorthaired Cuddly Cavy even though Ginny is an Aby mix. Just having the marking the same would do. We'll I'll see.

    The one I have is like a teenage or adult size piggie and it's pretty good size. It's as big or bigger than some of my adult cavies.

    I strive for "close to life size". An adult is about 9" long a baby would be about half that length.
