Yes, we have the famous, All About Us thread. However, that is about us. Let's talk about our piggies!

Make a short bio for each of your piggies.

Name
Age
Gender
*Where you got her/him
How long you've had her/him

His/her favorite food (veggie/fruit)
His/her favorite toy
The cutest thing he/she has ever done
The funniest thing he/she has ever done
His/her favorite place to sleep.
His/her place she/he does his/her "business" lol

And finally, of course, a pigture or 2! (Basically as many as you want)

Also, don't forget to make a bio for each and every pig. So if you have 3 pigs, you have to do 3 bios.

Oh, and if anyone has more ideas for the bios, please post them!

Thanks! I will post mine after we get a few posts. :)

*Only if you adopted them, if not, you can leave this one empty.

Name: Quee
Age: between 4 and 5 years
Gender: female
*Where you got her/him: friend who had her moved out of state and couldn't take her, and his family was allergic. Turns out so am I, but I still love her lol
How long you've had her/him: about three months

His/her favorite food (veggie/fruit): she goes nuts and wheeks loudest for cabbage, but for obvious reasons she doesn't get much.
His/her favorite toy: big old pile of hay in the cage
The cutest thing he/she has ever done: when I hand-feed her veggies, she'll take one nibble to see what it is, then she'll bite down and jerk her head to the side really hard to yank it away from you. She's surprisingly strong lol Runner up: usually when she dives into a pile of hay, she comes away with some stuck to her nose and she doesn't notice until I brush it off...then she eats it.
The funniest thing he/she has ever done: sometimes she just shakes her entire body like a wet dog, it's fun to watch
His/her favorite place to sleep: in one of the pigloos, cuddled up with the other pig.
His/her place she/he does his/her "business": on me. Seriously, I have to use a towel to hold her for more than a minute, because she will pee on me and leave her body weight in poop.

Quee going Tony Montana on a pile of parsley on my girlfriend's desk:



"What are you talking about, there's no hay on my nose" (disclaimer: this was when we first got her in her old store cage, she lives in a nice 2x4 C&C now)



Name: Kwee
Age: around 4 months
Gender: female
*Where you got her/him: Petsmart
How long you've had her/him: between two and three months

His/her favorite food (veggie/fruit): carrots, romaine lettuce
His/her favorite toy: her older cagemate, Quee lol
The cutest thing he/she has ever done: when I put her down on my chest, sometimes if I'm wearing a button-down shirt or smock, as soon as I let her go, she runs right between the buttons and goes inside my shirt.
The funniest thing he/she has ever done: every now and then she just zooms and popcorns around the cage at a trillion miles per hour. She sends Carefresh and poop and hay everywhere, but it's amusing to watch. She also tends to start wheeking really loudly out of absolutely nowhere.
His/her favorite place to sleep: with Quee in a pigloo
His/her place she/he does his/her "business": she's very good about keeping it in the cage, and unlike Quee, I can hold her or keep her on my bed for half an hour. I can't tell their poops apart, but in the cage the vast majority seem to be in the corner by the water bottle.

One of the very few times Kwee stands still enough to allow for a good photo of her face:



Doing her "going into my shirt" thing:



Trying to impress me with her own red bandana (I wear one too lol)
 
Aww!!!! I LOVE the matching bandanas!!! Hahahahaha lol TFS!
