    I know, they're adorable! x

    My last four piggies all died about a year ago within a month of each other at the age of 8. I was heartbroken and told myself I wouldn't get anymore but I was at the pet store last week buying dog food and I saw them. Couldn't resist!!

    Thanks I got the two sisters (Pinky and Perky) when they were about 8 weeks old and then around 6 weeks later Perky gave birth to 2 new little piggies (Cotton and Cloud). Turns out my pigs were temporarily kept with males in the store. Luckily the babies were female too so I didn't have to separate them or anything. It's silly to say but they were a big part of my life. 8 years is a long time! I didn't even think they could live that long!

    Not silly at all! They're very special. My gerbils are very special to me and they're even tinier and shorter lived.

    Yeah 3-5 is typical for pigs, especially ones that have given birth that early! She's very lucky to have survived, and then for 8 years! Wow.

    I've had gerbils too! Basil and Jerry, then Garry and Minty What are yours called?

    I just looked up the world record for oldest Guinea Pig and it's 15!! Her name was Sweetie https://www.facebook.com/worldsoldestguineapig

    I was very lucky with my babies. I just went into my shed one day and there they were. I didn't even take them to the vet. Just left them to it as much as I could so I didn't interrupt. I sexed them myself a couple of weeks later.

    Might have to go through my old laptop and find some photos

    Yup lol! Mal is the alpha, very calm and level headed. Jayne is a derp and sometimes tries to be on top and most of the time Mal lets him think he's cool but if it gets too rough Mal is like "nope!"
