Welcome to my website, "open for business" on February 24, 2008 . While the website is new to me, raising cavies for show is not: Mighty Purdy Pigs was established in 1980 in Poughkeepsie, NY and has been in continuous operation since, moving to Raleigh, NC in 1984 and to Western NC in 1995.
I chose the forest scene because this is exactly where I might be - hiking or on horseback - when I am not doing some activity that revolves around my cavies, aka, guinea pigs. I have included a photo page for other furry family members, because I think they are also mighty purdy. I admit to getting carried away with the Darcy pictures!
Husband Mike is very important, but not furry enough to appear in my photos. He puts the Purdy in Mighty Purdy Pigs!
It is a rare week when I do not have cavies for sale. There may or may not be photos posted of these animals, but please don't hesitate to make an inquiry. I maintain a waiting list, if the breed/variety/sex of cavy you seek is not available at the moment.
Thanks for stopping by!
