Hamilton & Laurens

Location: foster

Hamilton and Laurens are a handsome pair of guinea pigs that came into our care after being abandoned in a box and left in the street, along with two other guinea pigs. Luckily a kind member of the public heard their wheeking and rang for help. We believe the boys are probably related in some way. Hamilton is now around 9 months old and Laurens is around 3 months old. Laurens and his 2 siblings (who have already been rehomed) were only 2-3 weeks old when they were abandoned but thankfully the 4 of them were all unharmed and quickly settled into our care.

Here’s what their foster carer has to say: “Hamilton is a gorgeous tri-colour rex piggy with adorable fuzzy whiskers and Laurens is a little ginger pocket rocket! Hamilton is the more confident of the two and Laurens follows him around like a little shadow. Hamilton is definitely the boss and always demands first pickings of any food, leaving Laurens to happily hoover up whatever is around him! The boys are great hay eaters and will eat it by the tray load. They love their daily veg – kale and red pepper being firm favourites! When the boys arrived in our care they were extremely frightened and had likely had no handling. Fast forward a few weeks and they have definitely found their feet! They wheek the house down when they hear me chopping veg and they have now started to take food from my hand. It’s been so lovely to watch the boys grow in confidence; I’m sure whoever is lucky enough to adopt them will have many years of joy and mischief ahead.”

Hamilton has already been neutered by the branch. When Laurens is old enough the branch will pay for him to be neutered too. Having both boars neutered will enable them to find female partners in the future should they become bereaved. The boys are looking to be rehomed indoors in an enclosure that has a floor space of 152cm x 60cms or more (C&C set ups are best, read about them at the top of this page). If you can offer this beautiful pair a home please get in touch.

Pixie

Location: foster

Pixie is a 4 month old tricolour smooth coated little girl who was handed into National RSPCA care because the owners could not afford to look after her. She was underweight on arrival but with plenty of hay, fresh veggies and TLC she is back to full health and has been given a clean bill of health after being examined by an exotic vet specialist. This is what her foster mum has to say about her:  

"Pixie is adorable, a really confident and relaxed little lady. She is very vocal, often chattering away to herself and she will wheek the house down when she hears the fridge door open or the rustling of the hay bag! She is a fantastic hay eater and will happily munch through massive piles of it. On the veggie side she is very picky  and I have tried her on loads of different things, a lot of which she nibbles a bit of and then turns her nose up at (I have never met a pig which doesn’t like pepper for instance, but she just won’t eat it!) however she does adore her romaine lettuce. The other thing to share is that she prefers to drink from a bowl. The best thing about Pixie is that she very easy to handle and really loves a fuss"


Pixie is looking to be rehomed indoors in an enclosure like a C&C cage along with one of more guinea pigs (neutered male or females). Minimum size for two pigs is 152cm x 60cms or more (C&C set ups are best, read about them at the top of this page).
