My Husband and I have spent this last weekend preparing our home to bring home two piggies. I found them on craigslist we are getting them from a family who bought them for their children and the children will not care for them.
Here is the problem, the piggies are a male and a female and the female may be pregnant. I have chosen a vet and I am financially prepared to have the male neutered. As for the female I am afraid that she will have complications with the pregnancy or birth as I understand it can be very dangerous. Is it possible to terminate the pregnancy ? Is the risk greater to terminate or to let her have them?
I do have 3 children but I would like to make it clear I am getting these pets for myself and I take full responsibility for them. My children do not take care of animals they have other chores.
We will be building a 2x5 c&c open cage that will be in our livingroom. I plan to sew a fleece quilt for bedding and to sew some other fun things for the cage.
I have found where to but pellet and hay and we will stock the fridge with veggies before we bring them home.
Have I overlooked anything? I am nervous and excited all at the same time.
Thank you for your help.
