How did you become a piggy volunteer and foster parent?
We have had guinea pigs since 2008. After our first pair of piggies (Milly & Molly) passed away, I found the refuge to adopt another pair in 2014. Donald and Cassie were those piggies. The refuge put the call out for foster carers about Nov 2014, so we took our first fosters. Apart from holidays, we've had fosters ever since.
Most memorable piggie moment?
There are so many moments... my most memorable piggie to date has been Thunder. He would run up my body to his resting spot under my chin.
What is something people may not know about guinea pigs?
I don't think i know anything extra special about piggies...although i have shared this advice.... heck the medication from the vet. If it is a human drug (eg. Bactrim and asthma puffer medication), it's WAY cheaper to get a script and fill it at the Chemist, than get it from the vet.
What do you specialise in at the refuge?
I specialise in adoptions and bathing piggies at Piggie Parlour.
