Gorgeous piggies you have... skinnies are my favorite. <3 I used to have an albino boy.

They're so spoiled! Keep up with the updates :D

Well I was going to go out, get some supplies but thanks to an irresponsible ex roommate I now have to stay home and keep the door locked. That and he lost our only key -.-

Any tips on handling a skinny pig? He used to be around a young kid and I feel he thinks he will get hurt when he is touched!! I used to handle a skinny, and he was really good and calm. This one... very very jumpy But he trusts me!! Shaggy was chattering at him so Oliver comes on over and hides beneath me lol.

Well, I got tearless Johnson's baby shampoo and some lotion by that brand as well. I made him sit on my lap while I put the lotion on him - which took half an hour! But he's figured out being touched is NOT bad, painful or scary. He's a work in progress... I'll be giving him a bath soon too. But that might be when he does trust a bit more.

Also I tried using the dryer for the bedding, definitely not worth it. The oven for an hour then air dry over night I think is best I'll be adding more pictures eventually. Honey gave me a scare. since she is good at magician-ing herself here and there and everywhere, i thought she got out! i couldn't find her! just the baby. I ended up finding her in a small roll of blanket. x.x thank god! only way out would've been into one of the male's domains.....
