    Won't Eat New piggy won't eat anything but carrots

    We rescued a pig 3 days ago. He was being fed only crap pellets (with seeds and etc) and carrots. No hay. The only thing we have gotten him to eat is baby carrots. He is not drinking (from what we can tell). We put Oxbow pellets in there but he won't touch them (I'm guessing since they are...

    saving a CL pig

    I am trying to save this poor pig that got posted on Craigslist last night. We are just waiting for the owner to email us back. It makes me sad and angry at the same time to look at this poor pig! My husband says I have to stop looking at Craigslist because I can't save them all. :weepy:
