UNAVAILABLE Coco and Snowy

Available for long term foster only due to ongoing health conditions.

Coco and Snowy are 2 elderly ladies *ahem* my mistake - they aren't elderly, they are mature, so I'm told! They have been in the same home for virtually their whole lives and very sadly - due to their owners recently becoming unable to care for them - they have had to be surrendered.

They were very much loved and it was a difficult decision for their family!

The girls are quite nervous but are settling in well. They were quite fussy when it comes to veggies, preferring to stick with carrots and cabbage or spring greens although they're now eating most things except pepper! A big pile of their favourite floral hay always goes down a treat.

They're very much bonded and adore each other, sleeping together in their hidey, sharing food (otherwise known as stealing it from each other's mouths, looking at you Snowy!) and exploring together at floor time!

They used to live outdoors, but are now indoors in our pig room although they do enjoy grass time on warmer days.

Snowy is a pretty healthy girl for her age, she arrived with only a mild case of bumblefoot and long nails which needed a trim. Coco is showing her years a little more - she had a bad case of mange, which caused squealing when touching her skin. She also had a mild case of bumblefoot and had her long nails trimmed. She had brown discharge coming from one nostril too, but after a course of antibiotics and antiparasitics she is healing well. Unfortunately, she also has 2 growths. Our vet believes that sadly they are most likely tumours, especially the one with a blood supply and as she is too old for surgery it's going to be a case of seeing how she goes.

RESERVED Bigwig and Socks

We took in these lads (along with Slim Jim) in terrible condition. We collected them along with 2 bunnies (who have since been transferred to Hannah's Guinea Pig Sanctuary in Walsall who also has rescued one of the piggies from the same place as the boys) after spotting them for sale online living on a layer of their own poop. There was no bedding, no hay, no clean, dry area to rest in. It was very cold for them :( They smell strongly of cigarette smoke.

All three boys were very thin and they were suffering from a painful foot infection known as bumblefoot after living in their own pee and poop. Their feet were very red, hot and swollen. We've managed to get off the poop that was caked on their nails!

All three had patches of ringworm (fungal infection), especially poor Bigwig whose entire right eye was covered, and the inside of his ear.

They had bite wounds from the bunnies (not the bunnies' faults) that have scabbed over which is good although a few small scabs are yet to drop off, and they had sore, urine burned skin around their boy parts which has cleared up on clean, dry fleece.

They were a bit stiff, their coats were rough and their joints were a little swollen so we expect they were suffering from scurvy after a lack of suitable (or any, seeing as how thin they are) diet.

Slim Jim also had lice, so his brothers likely did as well.

They were so excited to see veggies on their first night here, after warily investigating the strange juicy crunchy things, and inhaled their nuggets in one sitting. They were so hungry and thirsty.

Bigwig is in charge of the 2 boys but both are still very nervous. They are very chatty however and absolutely love their hay and veggies! They're hungry growing lads. They will need a quiet, adult only home that can provide them with security, patience and kindness.

PLEASE NOTE: Despite 2 courses of different anti fungal treatments these boys seem prone to re-occurance of minor ringworm on their ears occasionally. Their adopter would need to be happy to spot the signs of this and treat it accordingly to keep it at bay.

UNAVAILABLE Hi, I'm Spooky

Hello everyone, it's nice to meet you. I'm Spike, although for some reason my ma calls me Spooky. I am an old boy, been there, done that, got the arthritis. No really, I have arthritis in my old bones! Luckily there's a tasty liquid ma gives me which takes the edge off. I am a friendly guy, I really just want to be with you all the time. Cuddles are great, especially when you have food for me. If you wouldn't mind could you cut it up small? My teeth are a bit overgrown so I struggle a little. Maybe I should invest in some dentures? And glasses! I can't see well as there's something wrong with my right eye. I have drops for that and it's started to feel better and it doesn't run any more. Did you say something? Sorry, my ears are very grubby so I can't hear you well. I have antibiotics to help clear the infection but it's gotten pretty far which isn't great. So far in fact my head tilts now, but hopefully the medicines will create an improvement. Once ma had cleared my impaction (old man problems, what can I say?) I felt like a spring chicken! Sort of. Anyways, I'm off for some hot cocoa and a nap. Where are my slippers?

UNAVAILABLE Elma

PREGNANCY WATCH

Basically everything about the beautiful Elma is a mystery - other than that she was surrendered to a local pet store. A woman was knocking on the front doors of the store before opening, with a carrier.

She told the colleague who opened the door that she'd had Elma from a friend a week or so ago, and she didn't get on with her 8 pigs (Boars? Sows? Who knows. She is currently on baby watch!).

When the colleague politely told her about the waiting list for surrenders, this vile woman announced that if the store didn't take Elma, she was going to immediately take her straight to the vets to be euthanised!

This person put the store colleague in a really difficult position. The colleague told this woman to look for a local resuce, to which the woman replied asking the colleague to find her one! Thankfully the colleague then promptly snatched Elma from this woman's carrier and took her away to safety. To cries of 'why are you being like this?' - why do you flippin' think?!

So, Elma (named by the store) has come to join us in the hopes that she will be Ash's new wife once his post neuter 6 weeks is up and her pregnancy watch is over but unfortunately she was far too dominant for him! She is adult, but other than that any age we can give would be an estimate at best.
