The big guy has a heart of gold. He's come so far from the itchy and angry piggie I brought home. Even when he was so itchy, he had as sweet a disposition as could be expected. Since the itching stopped, he's gotten more outgoing as time passes. He runs to the front of the cage to greet me and squeaks for me. He readily lets me pick him up and purs when I hold and pet him. Most of all, he's become quite the lettuce eater. It took many months to get him to eat it but he eats it as readily as the rest of the boys now.
His favorite thing to do next to snuggling up on my lap is to have me hand feed him pellets through the cage. It's funny how excited he gets when he sees me reach into the bucket to grab a handful. He's got such character. It really came out once we got his health squared away. Itching can drive a person crazy, so I can only imagine how he felt. It's so nice to have that behind us. Mites can be brutal.
