  1. Sad: Re: Is it selfish of me to want to get rid of my piggies for these reasons?

  4. General: Re: Advice for teacher who has been offered the chance to adopt two males

    I think the exposure is a fantastic idea so long as the kids know the expectations and rules about the piggies.

    I also really like the idea of only having them in the classroom one or two days a...
  5. Cage: Re: A cage at Petsmart that is actually not too small!?!?

    While not perfect, this is definitely a step in the right direction at least. Now they just need to stop selling the really tiny ones. And food that isn't good for pigs. And toys that aren't good for...

    Ditto to sallyvh on the male and female deal. It is much more of an individual cat personality thing. That said, take proper precautions like putting a lid on your cage. I have 6 cats and two pigs...

    Re: Which indoor cage is cat proof?

    The Ferplast cage, from what I understand, seems like it is a bit too small. It would take a lot more grids, but I would suggest doing a c&c cage but use the grids in a way that they overlap. When...

  15. General: Re: Moving to a new room. How can I help my pig be less stressed?

    It also helps to keep the routine the same as far as times you feed them and give them lap time. If it is still at the same time each day, it shouldn't be too difficult of a transition.
