The phone rings early on the day of our fundraiser with a call from City Dogs of Cleveland. They have 2 pigs that were wandering the streets of Cleveland and they need a place to call home. Before my brain could say no, my heart said yes, they are welcome here. So, here comes Benny and Joon. Joon was looking a bit portly for her little 6 month old frame. The vet came out and confirmed what we were thinking. Little Joon was soon to be mama Joon.
Not knowing when she was due, I made an appointment for the Vet for November 16th. Well, we never made it to that appointment. On November 7, 2021 4 piglets made their worldly debut at Whispering Acres. Four perfect adorable little piglets.
Mama Joon is the best mama ever. She takes very good care of her little babies. They are growing quickly and are happy and healthy.
Benny just does his own thing, he wanders around all day munching on pumpkins, taking naps with Patsy and instigating Kevin. He is like that pain in the butt little brother to Kevin. But, Kevin takes it in stride. He bickers and complains. But, at nap time, they all curl up together as one happy little family. The little piglets will stay with mama until they are about 12 weeks old. They will be up for adoption after that time to experience pig owners. Mom and dad may look small. But keep in mind that these pigs can get to be 300 pounds. Mama Joon was bred way too young and had her babies at only 6 months old. These pigs will grow until they are around 4 years old! For more info on mini pigs, please see the link in the menu. I am always open for questions as well. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mama Joon and Benny are looking for their forever homes.
If you would like to adopt one of these cuties, please refer to the adoption application.
Stay tuned for more piggy updates!
