    Wow I have only 2 pets, my piggies. We used to have fish, but I don't think we've ever had more than 4 pets in our household at a time.

    Well I currently only have one because of my parents. When I got Hippie I knew they liked company but really didn't know it was that important. I know that fact now but my parents really don't want another pig, mainly because we have so many animals already. I've tried explaining to them the importance of a buddy but they still aren't sold.

    Also when I first got him I had no clue that pet store cages were too small so he was in a modified rabbit cage, well needless to say when I found out I bought him (with my own money) a Midwest Guinea Habitat (with top panel) which is the equivalent of a 2x3 and we have no room to go any bigger. Although I want too we just don't have the space right now, so we wouldn't have an accurate cage size for two either which would probably cause problems.

    I should however (hopefully) be looking for a job soon, so maybe when I start paying for everything and not just the extras I'll be able to get him a friend. For now he just gets extra attention, though I know it does not compare to a buddy.

    Believe me, if it were up to me I would have a room full of pigs. Maybe 10+...But there's always a catch to my life. I have no job, I'm a college student full time and my boyfriend pays the bills. If I had another pig, it would make the "piggy bill" go up x2. Plus I don't want to have the idea of not being able to get them both to a vet if something happened haunt me at night.

    Currently, I have applied to many places in hopes of getting a job going this summer while going to school part time when it begins again. As for the animals I have in my house right now, it would be my 4 rats, hedgehog and guinea pig. The rest are back home and my parents care for them. Food, vet bills, and care are all on them for now.


    But, he gets way too much attention anyways. So, no worries. He's not just sitting in his cage all day by himself in a corner with no light. He gets more attention than anyone else because he's by himeself. My hedgehog was abused and negelected in the past and we're still working on getting her used to people. So, everything is as it should be. So, until I'm making enough money, I will have a single piggy.

    Re: just curious

    2 female dogs
    2 female cats
    4 male guinea pigs
    1 rooster
    8 hens with around 24 chicks (they are hard to get a count on but 1 hen has 1, 1 hen has 3, 1 hen has 8, 1 hen just hatched off 12 and I think there is another hen with some.) Which explains why we are still having to buy eggs at the store. Little stinkers are hiding all the eggs so they can hatch them. (A downside to free range.)
