Mary was here working all day. She was here when we found out about the
baby pigs and helped get the family moved safely.

Joy can out to scrub up Mount Dishmore !!!!

Welcome to the world little one !!!!
Hi MOM !!!!!
Refuge Rule 14,786: When working at Rikki's Refuge, ALWAYS keep a clean
change of clothes in your car !!!!!
Mom isn't taking well to this baby thing, the babies seem a bit thin
too, they needed some extra warmth and bottle feeding.
Snuggy babies!
This is the active little one !

From Debra, once again proving the superiority of cat over hooman !!!
A man absolutely hated his wife's cat and decided to get rid of him one
day by driving him 20 blocks from his home and leaving him at the park.
As he arrived home, the cat was walking up the driveway.

The next day he decided to drive the cat 40 blocks away. He put the
beast out and headed home. Driving back up his driveway, there was the cat!

He kept taking the cat further and further, and the cat would always
beat him home. At last he decided to drive a few miles away, turn right,
then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right until he
reached what he thought was a safe distance from his home and left the
cat there.

Hours later the man calls home to his wife: "Jen, is the cat there?"
"Yes", the wife answers, "why do you ask?"
Frustrated, the man answered, "Put the little @#$#@ on the phone, I'm
lost and need directions."

I'm a frog today !!!!
I'm so happy to spend the day floating down the creek on a lilly pad
instead of in that house listening to squealing baby pigs!!!!!
VOTE now - and today - tell three friends to vote.

We survived the first night nursing the babies!! Mom fed the little
runt - and siblings - every hour - all night long. The GOOD NEWS is
they may only need that 3-10 days!! DAYS not even weeks !!!! Yippee
!!!!! The itty bitty runt is taking a couple licks of milk by himself

Here's the piggies just barely more than 24 hours old!!!! AFTER being
fed so their squeals are very soft here!

Bella still isn't very impressed with her babies. She needs
"assistance" lying down to feed them. And it only lasts a minute or so
before she runs away. Valerie will keep trying all day and keep paws
crossed she'll decide she loves her babies so they can move in with her.
Right now it's not safe to leave them in with her.

Do you remember 10 years ago on a snowy Christmas Eve when Charlotte,
the one too young to possibly be pregnant when she arrived, gave birth
to four breach babies!!! The runt of that litter, now known as
Frieda, she started life as Little Tar Baby cuz she was just a speck of
black! She became a world famous pig when Dr. Pitcairn cured her
incurable malformed legs using homeopathy!

From Walker: They crossed a Collie and a Lhasa Apso. The new breed is a
Collapso, a dog that folds up for easy transport.

You did VOTE didn't you?

Be my hero - feed the piglets all night!!! Actually Kristy and daughter
Beth have offered to take a night and Katarina has offered to take a
night. Stand by - I'll let you know if they're eating enough on their
own or still need frequent feedings throughout the night.

I wonder if I squealed like that if I'd get more frequent feedings ????

I love you all, no matter what species you are, as long as you don't
squeal all night !!!!

Love, Vincent
