life works in mysterious ways

Mere days after Dee-dee was euthanized, a new piglet has been welcomed to the sanctuary. He has no name. I and my coworker picked him up this morning from a family who found him in the middle of the road. With an umbilical cord. He's only one day old.

Behold the cutenosity.









And for perspective:

Curiosity killed the cat
May I ask?

How does your shelter handly unweaned critters? Does somebody foster them? Does someone make frequent trips in? Or are piglets able to go the night without eating?

I do not know much about livestock...

Re: Curiosity killed the cat
We are a sanctuary, so in general, all the animals who come here remain here. We have four full time employees, three of whom live at the sanctuary (*pouts* I'm the only one who doesn't). Two of those employees are full-time animal caregivers and provide round the clock care to any and all animals who need it.

So piglet spent the night at one of the caregivers apartments on the sanctuary grounds and fed him every hour.

I relieve the other two of their duties by keeping the piglet in my office during the day. :)

He likes to snuggle on his own terms. God help us all if anyone tries to pick him up. ;)
