Greenbean, what you wrote is so sad. I think you're really mature for your age. You only have a few more years and you'll be able to make choices about seeing your siblings. Maybe your dad could arrange for you to spend some time with them. It wouldn't hurt to ask him. Hold onto those memories of the good times because they will always be yours. No one can take those away from you. I think one day you'll make a wonderful Mom...... be happy.... you deserve it.
@Greenbean I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Divorce is hard on children. I think sometimes adults seem to forget that in the bitterness of their own pain. I wish I could just reach out and give you a big hug. My parents divorced when I was a kid too (almost 17 years ago now). I remember a hard adjustment.
@PigPandemonium Ahh. Your cage is too small.
@CritterLuvva They divorced when I was 8, so it's been about 5 years since then.
I was living with my mom when they divorced, but we barely had any food, and we didn't have anything to do, no cable until a month before I moved out, internet, I couldn't even go outside. So...my dad got mad, and I got to live with him.
@PigPandemonium Little bit too small. How many piggies you got in there?
@Greenbean I was 12. I'm the oldest of 4 kids and we were never separated. We lived with Mom, which I was glad of- she was the only one who could afford our care! I'm glad to hear your settled, but sorry to hear about the loss of your siblings. Do you, alone, live with your dad?
@PigPandemonium She's got a good question. How many piggies do you have? Surely not just 2 have the run of an entire room like that! Or is the number of piggies you keep the reason you're handle is PigPandemonium? I'm sure you're a great piggy mom!
@CritterLuvva Ah. Hmm...would you think that ordering a C&C cage off of here would be easier than going out and looking for the stuff? The only place closest that sells coroplast is a sign shop in Tennessee. I think it might be.
@pinky Thank you. I thought it was kind of mushy. :P
Yes, a lot of people tell me that the things I have been through has just made me stronger. A ton of other bad things has happened that I didn't put in there, would have made me cry even harder.
@Greenbean Maybe. Maybe not. I just found out on another thread that coroplast is also called corrugated plastic. They use it for things like voting signs. You should check Mom and Pop (small name) businesses and see if they have it. Make sure to use both terms and tell them it doesn't matter if it's scratched up since it's for a piggy cage because sometimes people get it cheaper that way.
I haven't run into the problem of not being able to find it. One or two calls and I found a place that sells it in my area for the cheapest any one on this forum has found it for- $11 for a 4'x8'! Any Carolinians around here that might be able to help Greenbean find coroplast? Thanks.
@CritterLuvva I think I might just order it off the website, I think it would be easier.
I dunno, I still have two weeks to make up my mind. :3
@pinky I go to the school counselor sometimes, but not really because I go to a therapist in Asheville.
@pinky Yeah, spoils me too.
Just trying to help you make sure you have options to choose from. Personally, I think it would be cheaper if you could find your own supplies. You can make a decent size cage for $50. Those are all over $100. Pricing things out, I found I could get 2 4'x8's for $22 and a package of 20 cubes for $20. That's $44 and could make the equivalent of a 2x8.
Oh, I'm just going to get one without a second story, the one I want is 74 or 76 dollars. Somewhere around there. Once I have that cage I'm going to get Trinity, then I'm going to wait a while, then order grids and coroplast for a second story.
