Welcome to The Amazing Fella!
Great to see you and thanks for checking me out! My name is Fella, I'm a pig who used to live on a Sausage farm in Essex. One cold and blustery day my Mum arrived and the farmer grabbed me and threw me into her arms. I was carried off and given an earring before a long car journey to my new forever home.
I was scared at first and didn't let mum near me for 6 weeks. I wasn't sure what was happening so I thought it best to eat some furniture, chew through wires and open kitchen cupboards until I'd sussed it out. Soon I realised that Mum just wanted to love and care for me and I started to feel the same about her too.
I started life in the house with my dog brothers- Yes I am house trained- I am a pig after all- that means i'm super clean and like to do my business as far from the house as possible (as do my brother and sister). Mum also takes me for walks on my harness and I follow her wherever she goes. As you can imagine- we get stopped a lot and get chatting to lots of you which we really enjoy. But as our Pig family grew (see The FellaShip Sanctuary story above), Mum saw that I would be happier outside with my Sister and Brother (Lady and Bobby).
In January 2017 I got terminally ill and several inconclusive biopsys later, I was given 2 weeks to live. I was so weak I couldn't stand and had to be hand fed. Having lost 5 stone Mum bought me back into the house and nursed me with a soft bed and blankets, fresh fruit and vegetables and more cuddles than I could handle. Very slowly I started to improve and by April I had gained 3 stone and going on walks again.
In June we all moved house just in time for my human sister Delilah to be born and we now have an acre of land to mooch about on. I sleep in my own outside quarters on a 3 gym mats and a single mattress, enormous fluffy blankets, a radiator keeping my room at 20 degrees and a radio. I still have tumours but they aren't bothering me and i'm enjoying my life. Mum keeps a keen eye on me and helps me up every morning with the smell of my warm banana porridge!
You can see what I get up to on my Facebook and Twitter Page. Hope to see you soon!
Love, Fella x
