New Peruvian Female- Luminara

I'm thinking we might keep her. She came from Auburn last night and had a HUGE ball of hair and shavings attached to her bum. It was almost half her size. It took awhile to cut it off, I didn't see any other way to do it, because it was so large.

She hadn't been eating well either, they ran out of food the day before and were feeding her carrots, they were doing the best they could. Unfortunately, carrots are suppose to be a treat only, as they aren't very good for the piggie. Because of this her poo was very tiny, lite brown and shaped funny. I was afraid we would have to get her to the vet. As soon as we got her home we gave her some pellets and romaine lettuce which she gobbled up.

As of tonight though she's doing much better, her poo is regular, brown, still small, etc. She's so pretty and not as scared as she was yesterday. She's so pretty. What do you think?

  1. Not sure from the picture, but she looks like a silkie to me...they also have problems with stuff sticking to their hind ends. Silkies have short hair on the face, long hair that sweeps back on the rest of the body. She's really cute!
