Jelly came into rescue with Anthony Edwards and Peanut. He is a retired show pig whose stud career has ended. He is about 14 months old. When you hold him, you can see a small hole in his ear where his tag used to be (required for showing). Jelly had the start of an abscess when he arrived and is undergoing treatment for it. He has had surgery to remove the abscess and is currently in antibiotics. The wound has scabbed over and is slowly healing. Jelly is a laidback piggy, but has an operatic voice when it comes to letting you know he wants his veggies. He likes to be held and hand fed carrots. He enjoys a small range of veggies (spring mix, carrot, green peppers, kale, spinach, cucumber, celery and dandelion greens). He will not eat coloured food (no coloured peppers of fruits) and ignores the apple if you give it to him. He loves his Oxbox Vitamin C cookies. Hay is the best thing in the world and he really chows down on it (morning and night, with veggies at dinner time). He has been fostered in a home with cats (cats will sit on top of the cage and he’s not bothered by it) and 2 small dogs and doesn’t react to barking. He came from a home with young children and was previously a singleton. He did not accept a cage mate and will need to be in his own cage. He is fine next to another piggy who he can hear and smell, but cannot be in the same cage with another boar. If he were neutered, he would love a wife.
