Well, I did not get the Burlington piggy. I sent an email, got no response but did start receiving weird requests for friendship in my email.
I thought about waiting to get Valor (the shelter that has him was holding off adoptions until after the holidays).
I did not think my Sookie could wait. He began staying out of his pigaloos and just standing there staring at nothing all day. So I called every shelter/rescue within 100 miles of me. I found a few pigs, but they were all female.
Then one of the dog sanctuaries (A wonderful older lady who spent a lot of her day helping me) I had called earler in the day called me back and said she knew of a pig that got droped off at a pet store. A fish and REPTILE store...reptile is capitalized so that you can guess why the pig was dropped off there. I guess the owner had add a heart and decided to find a home for the pig by calling shelters since he did not have the cage and stuff needed to keep him to sell. He did not know if he was male or female. So, I drove over two towns and sure enough he was a male baby..but a big baby..he is about the same size as my adult male. (My male is small for his age)
The pet store owner had him in a smallish mouse cage because he did not have anything else to put him in. Unfortunately the store owner does breed mice for the reptiles
The store owner had spend some money on timothy hay for him, so I reimbursed him for that and took the little boy home.
I figured it was fate that the pet store owner did not have any snakes big enough to eat the piggy in stock.
The little boy as soooooo frightened that when I brought him home and introduced him to my sookie on the floor..he went straight up to him and tried to get underneath him for a "Please, I am scared snuggle"
They have gotten a long well for days now. I do not know how he was housed before he got to the pet store, but the baby seems "surprised" by veggies and fleece. He seems a little too fat for his age so he probably was fed, just not fed well. It also took him a while to understand the pigaloos. I had to promise him they were not wormholes to another dimension LOL. I haven't named the new pig yet. I will post pics soon!
