Hey hey. If any of you visit Petshub, please say hi to me there:cheerful:

I currently own 1 horse, 5 goats, 9 chickens, 1 dog, 2 cats, 2 mice, and 1 guinea pig.

I just purchased my guinea pig (haven't sexed it yet) from auction. I'm still learning, and I am excited to be a part of these forums! TTYL!

BTW, what do all the Groans and Thanks mean?

First off welcome to the forums!

But this is a pro-rescue anti-breeding forum where purchasing animals is severly frowned upon. For more information on why check out these sites:

But what is done is done. But please consider adoption next time.

On to the pig! Congradulations! For some information of care please check out this site: http://www.guinealynx.info/index.html Also this thread is helpful: http://cavycages.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11278

Pigs are a joy to own buy take a lot of time, money and effort to properly care for. But it is so worth it!

Welcome, and if you have any questions feel free to ask!

Thank you! I did save this piggy's life, (or it's sanity, either way) so I'm pretty happy with that. I am also very pro-adoption, however this pigger needed someone to love it:D

Thanks for the links, I'll be sure to check them out.
