    Re: Cage Suggestions for a Hamster

    Sallyvh, that is a nice size cage too. You're a lot more creative than I am. I'm bad at just looking at a cage and seeing what "it is" not what "it could be".

    Re: Cage Suggestions for a Hamster

    Wow. Those cages look awesome! Thanks for the information. The cage she is in is way too small, and I wanted to get her into a bin cage asap, but I've just been super busy. Getting her was an impulse...

    Behavior: Re: Unable to play with my piggies

    That's normal. I've had pigs now for 7 years, and I've never had a pig that was like, "yes, please hold me!" I've had some who were more okay with being held than others, but overall guinea pigs run...
  6. Behavior: Re: Not sure what kind of disability this guinea pig has.

    If she does have a mental disability it doesn't mean she can't live a long healthy life. My 3 year old pig Indiana has a neurological problem, likely the result of an untreated ear infection. When I...

  8. Bloated: Re: Possible tumor and bloat. Advice needed.

    Growing up on a large horse farm I was taught if they are eating, drinking and pooping then let them live. Not everyone lives by that motto, but it's served me well. To be honest, I'm an optimist...

    Re: First-time Pet Parent, Lots to Learn

    I have a 6 year old (almost 7) pig who still hates being held (I've had her 7 years in March). Different animals have different personalities. My 3 year old pig is terrified of me, and my new pig...

    Conditions: Re: Guinea pig and Stroke

    If a human had a stroke they would go to the doctor. You do not know for sure your pig had a stroke. You are assuming your pig had a stroke, but there could be other problems that you can't see. For...

    Sad: Re: Witnessed something horrible!

    Good for you. Do you have mandated reporters? If you do, I suppose you could always claim that you think you are one (or maybe you are one), if she does suspect you were the one who reported her. Or...

    General: Re: Welcome Home Bambi

    Thanks. Since I use paper bedding it works easier to use bowls because otherwise the paper sticks to the veggies. The hay usually still get everywhere anyway, but it starts out clean.

    Having worked at PetSmart, I can tell you from experience, do not take your pig to the PetSmart vet. I decided to try them once because I thought they'd be cheaper than my regular vet. Not only were...

    Conditions: Re: Trouble with walking and balance.

    This looks a lot like how my Indiana was when I brought her home at around 3 months. She has neurological problems. As she has aged (she's 3 now) her behaviors have mostly become "normal", but if she...

  25. Rehoming: Re: Need to rehome my 2 girls- Madison, Wisconsin

    Do you have an estimate on the time frame for when you will no longer be homeless? Maybe someone in WI might be willing to temporarily foster if this is a short term situation.
