Look, I found a cool thing, potentially useful for finding good colour palettes and such: moviebarcode.tumblr.com/
Oh, what a surprise, it failed. Again. I may start using bad language.
Okay, this now is the THIRD TIME I have had to restart this render as it just...STOPS after a few hours. WHY.
That feeling when you leave a fractal to render overnight, then find out in the morning that the program crashed after only an hour. 
Seeing as there's been so much enthusiasm about my piggies, I thought I'd introduce them properly!



We got the trio from the RSPCA after our old pig, Apple, passed away last month at the age of six. Here's Applepig:

She was boss of the house and she knew it!

So, a week ago we adopted these sweet girls, both about a year old:

They were abandoned after their previous owners were evicted from their house. They're a bit nervous, but coming around. Ginny's quite inquisitive, but is VERY twitchy when being held. Molly's a bit more chill. 

They were listed on the RSPCA as Clarrie and Fallon, but the lady at the boarding house didn't know which was which, and we weren't too keen on the names, and THEY didn't have any hints to offer, so we called them Ginny (left) and Molly (right). They're rodents but they don't look very Weasley to me...

In addition to these sisters, we found a boar, Meeko, who is about a year and four months, who was looking for a home with one or more sows.

He came from a house with eighty guinea pigs. EIGHTY. He's a great big marshmallow. Easily the most timid of the three, even though he's much bigger than the girls.

He's also a total dumbass. I say that with the utmost affection. He's actually fostered, but we can fully adopt him once they're bonded. He's such a handsome boy. 

So we're working on bonding them at the moment, and getting them to warm up to us. On both counts, I'd say things are going pretty well! We put them together yesterday, and er, Meeko got busy, but settled down after a bit. Good thing he's neutered!

When they first came home, they would run at the slightest movement from us (if they emerged from their hiding spots at all), so for the first couple of days it was as if there were no piggies in the house! They're now a lot more confident, and we can usually get near if we don't make any sudden movements. They've even eaten from our hands, and Meeko let me stroke him today!

Hopefully it won't be long before they're fully settled in.
