GUINEA PIGS OF THE MONTH!

Cherry, Carmen & Rhonda

Location: foster care

Cherry, Rhonda and Carmen are a trio of ladies looking for a new home after they were abandoned in a property. We believe the girls were born around January 2017 and were no doubt part of an accidental litter as there 6 other pigs in the home too. The girls came to us back in July when they were extremely skittish but thankfully in good health. After a couple of months in our boarding facility we realised we’d made very little progress socialising the ladies so moved them into a foster home where I am happy to report they have flourished.

Here's what their foster mum has to say about them:

“These three little piggies have come on so well, when they first arrived they were so scared and wouldn’t come out of their hide. Within a few days they became more confident, and now they are the cutest and cheekiest little trio.

They will never love being picked up, but are getting more used to it with time. However they will happily climb all over your hands to see what treats you might have, and will let you give them a little stroke whilst they are occupied with something tasty. They are also getting used to a bit of lap time and will happily sit there munching on some veggies whilst you pet them.

It’s lovely watching them interact with each other, as with any sisters they will always want what the other one has and there is many a tug of war.


They are the most vocal piggies ever, as soon as they hear you coming they start wheeking so loudly, and always come running up to meet you. They are lovely company and are always happy to see you. They are honestly the cutest little piggies and I have no doubt they will get even more confident with time.''

The girls have made massive progress since receiving daily positive interaction with people but they are still best suited to an adult owner rather than a family pet. They are currently living in an indoor cage with a fleece lining so are looking for a similar set up (minimum 182 cm x 60cm or 5 x 2 C&C grid cage size).
