Yesterday Elaine (previously known as minnie) came to live with us. she's a spayed female (yes, i actually found one) who's about 5 years old. she's an orange-ish abby who seems very very sweet. she had lived with her mother, who died 3 years ago and she's been alone ever since. her previous owner realized she wasn't able to give her the time and attention she needed, so was looking to re-home her. right now she's quarrentined in the cage she came in (2x4 c&c). i'm hoping to have her paired with jerry, who is my current lone pig. yes, i know, the "real" jerry and elaine could never really make it work, but they always stayed friends, right? ;)

then yesterday i also, i expand the boys cage from 2X4 to 3X5. they were bickering so much, i thought more room would help. today i'm so sore - it was alot of work!! i was exhausted. newman, kramer, and george love it though. it does take up a lot of room in my small space (MY whole condo is only 800 square feet). at one point i looked around my livingroom and thought, "Oh, my G-d, i've gone over the edge!" :eek: and i'm going to try not to worry about how much time it will take to clean every week. . .

so the head count is now 5 little piggies, and three cages! AARRGG! when's the next meeting of pig-aholics! i admit i'm powerless already. . .:D
 
It's good to see it happening to someone else! I had pigs all through my childhood and loved them, but no where near as much as I do now. I went a few years without having one in my life and then when we started renting an actual house with a spare bedroom I was like, "It's not like I have any friends that are going to come and spend the night, I'll find something to fill it!" And I sure did.

I got Bocefus about a year and a half ago and haven't looked back.
Bocefus, Lucien [RIP], Waylon, Warden, November, Alenko [RIP], Cara, and Rictor.
So 6 that are right now in 4 different living arrangements [Rictor is due to be neutered this tuesday for Cara] and the entire spare bedroom is full with a 3X4 and a 2X5 [the bed barely fits and will most likely have to be removed for the new Cara and Rictor cage being built soon].

You're 3X5 is wonderful and I just love your piggie bedspreads you create. I tried sewing things and they never turned out right. Your pigs already have wonderful lives and I hope they show their gratitude in wheeks and popcorns!
I can't wait to see pics of Elaine and Jerry together, though I know it'll be a few weeks. So satiate my impatience with one of just her, please?! =]
