Update on the piggies!

Edit- oops, completely forgot about the thread "Your Pets". Oops.

Ivan, who is my baby ♥♥ (Sorry bettas!) the skinny pig, Cookie, the calico, and her two girls, Rex (white) and Muffin (with the white scruff.)

Enjoy!

The pigs and I thank you both!

They're uncommon, but there's a PJ's Pet Express near our house. (And let me tell you, they are not cheap. Maybe 80-90 pounds in the UK.) I sucked my parents into getting me one, don't ask how, because I don't know XDD

So cute, I wish I could have some but I'm so nervous about having to get them spayed/neutered and sexing them can be challenging for inexperienced keepers. Are yours all ladies, or did you get them fixed?

Cookie, Rex and Muffin are all the ladies. They and Ivan are in a divided cage. I'm thinking of neutering Ivan though.

We were very lucky that all of Cookie's piglets turned out to be girlies.. would've been a mess otherwise.

Oh, I see! :) If you end up wanting to go through with it, just make sure you do a lot of research on the vet who you hire to do the neuter. I've heard a lot of horror stories--so definitely make sure you know how often they do the procedure, how many they've done, and try to get testimonials from some of the customers.

Thank you, Celine :) Most of my friends are a bit freaked out by him, too. XD

And Adastra, I will for sure! I've heard quite a lot of horror stories as well.
We've asked my vet about it, and she says she's done it quite a few times with no deaths. Of course, we will be looking around a bit more just in case.
