I know everyone says that, but I can't fathom how anything poops more than a regular guinea pig. :)

Well, believe it! lol It's a simple physiologic function in that because they are hairless and (in theory) need a higher body temperature to keep them warm. Their metabolism is sped up and consequently their digestive system works overtime.

Have you ever picked up a Baldwin or skinny piggy? They are like little furnaces. :p

Before I bought them I watched all her videos like the whole week before I finally decided to get them. She gave me the inspiration for fleece bedding :-)

@ 2boops lol, love the boops names
Yes, I love her, she adores her piggies and she's super knowledgeable about them too. I was sad for her recent loss of Calvin, her tributes really tug at your heart strings.

I just started calling them boops one day lol since my bf named one and my daughter named the other, I guess I had to personalize them lol

I agree with you on SkinnyPigs 1. It is such a joy to watch her channel. She really gives her all to her piggies.

It made me so angry when someone told her recently that they wouldn't listen to any advice that she gave because according to them she's lost a lot of pigs lately. Seriously, all of her pigs have lived to be seniors. I was very happy to see that most people immediately jumped to Abby's defense. SkinnyPigs 1 is probably one of the best owners around. Any pig fortunate enough to live with her is one very lucky pig indeed.
