I got a skinny pig about 4 months ago for my daughters but I won't rid of it. He is the smelliest mess and he is not that friendly. He is the worst pet ever but not sure what to do with him. The girls won't play with him because he is so crazy and not too friendly. Any suggestions?

    Well, because you plan on keeping him, I suggest you keep him clean and healthy, and work on socializing. Perhaps you could get him a companion (another guinea pig of the same sex) for a friend.

I recently adopted a rubalina that his owner passed away. The birds name is Jessee and he's 3 years old. I agreed to take him due to his crazy aggressive biting. He has caused some major damage to a 50+ year, third generation experienced handler/breeder and his employees. Due to my strange ways with my feathered friends, I was WARNED and asked if I'd try my magic with him. Well, Ive bonded so well with him, Ive got a new snuggle buddy. He now shows more characteristics of a cockatoo. He is the most gentle giant and actually is never caged anymore (giant play structure). People are in aw when they see him love on me as he does. I don't have the trust to hand him to anybody yet (he caused to many stitches already) but I do allow calm people to pet him. I now have a new friend for life! He has become such a lover and travels everywhere with me. He started regurgitating food about two weeks ago and cries when I go to work, it breaks my heart daily. He's with the misses during the day tho so I know he's in good hands. If anybody has any questions or comments, feel free to email me, crazy4thebirds@yahoo.com. I know I'm not typical nor a beginner but my experience is WOW, what an amazing family member I have gained. Ive handled from hand feeding to seniors, over hundreds and hundreds of birds but only ONE rubalina and Im hooked. The nippy jerky and aggressive macaw I normally see is not present in this breed. HOWEVER, THIS IS A BIRD FOR AN EXPERIENCED HANDLER ONLY ONLY ONLY! DONT GO GET THIS AS A FIRST BIRD OR BIRST BIG BIRD! I promise, you'll get hurt and cause hurt to your pet.

    I have an 8 yr old rubalina that I bought as a baby. Not only is she the first macaw I have ever owned, she is the first bird that I have ever owned of any kind. I'm not saying it was easy, but she is an awesome pet.
