    I voted Abysinnian but as far as color goes my favorite is silver agouti. I think it is so pretty. My Penelope is a golden agouti. I think that's a close second for me.

    Re: what's your favourite Fur type?

    It is hard to choose! I never really cared for Abyssinian until I owned one and I think her personality changed my mind. I like crested and short haired mostly. Abyssinians are softer, but you have to pet them in a specific way or they get angry, whereas cresteds and short haired are easier to pet, but not as soft.

    Silver agouti is gorgeous!

    Re: what's your favourite Fur type?

    Although Texels and Peruvians are really pretty, I think they're hard to manage with all that fur. I think my preference is for the round faced guinea pigs more than fur type, particularly Teddies with their rough fur, but I've seen Americans, crested, Teddies, Texels with that face, too. Abbies don't appeal to me but it probably has more to do with the personalities of two of them I've had.

    Abbies are my favorite. I love how unusual they look. I'm a fan of crazy-haired animals in general, but don't tell my two Americans.

    I love Abbies! But my favorite would have to be an English/American Crested that is a grey color. They're so cute!

    I love crested and coronet piggies. There's just something about that one swirl on their head. My mom had a crested pig, and we always used to joke that it was an on/off button

    Excuse the cage please xD this was from quite a while ago before I changed it all around and stuff but abyssianfor sure! Bibbles especially (with the black face) has the little cowlicks all over his body, Nibbles has them on either side of his rib cage and he has a mohawk from them on his head, he is just adorable with a little ridgeback, you can see him peeping up over his favorite perch spot he likes to sit on his tunnel and watch us, and I am lounging on the bed in hubbys clothes snuggling bibbles, ignore my grungyness, I love the pic i got from Bibbles though, he still seems so tiny but our boys are nearing about 9 months old now! Bibbles is definitely a runt

    I absolutely love the American Shorthairs. As far as coloring, I really like the reddish brown piggies. I'm also partial to the gray & white piggies.

    I love the look of the abyssinian's coat but the sheltie/silkie is my favorite to pet It's just too soft and shiny

    Re: what's your favourite Fur type?

    I am a huge sucker for any type of fluffy coat. Truffle was an almost all black Abyssinia and just so so cute. My medium coat crested mixes are of course my little darlings.

    Around here you really do not see much a variety in coats. Almost all Americans, then some Abbys. At the rescue I went to there were maybe two with longer coats, maybe abbyruvins. My boys are the only crested I have even seen and they are obviously mixes, they coloring is not 'correct' and they have medium coats, to short to be cornets.

    I would love to see all of these different types of piggies in person! I am in Florida so all of the Americans certainly makes sense. Lately everytime a see a tricolor I am just enraptured by them.
