Location: foster care
This beautiful little boy has come into our care after RSPCA inspectors removed over 300 animals from one home. The case is still under investigation but Pumpkin has been signed over and was the only guinea pig in the home. We suspect he was most likely destined to be food for another animal. Pumpkin was castrated on 20th March and will be ready to be paired with female pig/s by the end of April. He has been benefiting from extra TLC in his foster home. This is what his foster mum has to say about him:
"Pumpkin is an absolute delight! He is around 6/7 months old and has a clean bill of health. He was understandably shy on arrival and avoidant of being handled. However, with confidence and gentle handling, Pumpkin and I have a great understanding and he is very cooperative. I've never met a piggy who popcorns as much, and boy does he love his cuddles and strokes. He loves chatting across the room to my pair of guinea pigs and when they were recently away for 2 days at the vets Pumpkin was subdued and early missing them.Pumpkin is an Olympic eater of hay, greens and dried grass and has been an utter delight to care for."
We are looking to rehome Pumpkin to live with one or more female guinea pigs. He has always been kept indoors but with the weather getting milder he could adapt to outdoor life. For 2 guinea pigs min 5ft x 2ft set up, but bigger is better! We offer a fostering scheme for people wishing to bond their lady piggies with one of ours so please get in touch if you can offer Pumpkin a forever home! He is a very special lad indeed.
