    These guys do enjoy company.  Having two will give them some entertainment when you can not provide it.  So I guess it really depends on how much time you have to be with your pig.

    Did you get a second Guinea? Our guinea looks identical to the one in the Abyssinian photo... we have been strongly considering a cage mate but are not sure if the cage size will accommodate two piggies!

I am so relieved to see these comments! I had bunnies growing up, never knew the breed. I realize reading up that they were white New Zealands. I just talked to a rabbitry who said they don't recommend this breed for pets because they are aggressive. And they are bred for meat and fur! I took her word for it. But, when I looked them up and realized what they were- I thought- my bunnies were New Zealands and they were adorable, wonderful pets! I loved them. They let me hold them, they fell asleep on my lap. The only reason I may not go with them as I'm looking for one now for my kids first bunny- is I think I may not be able to give a bigger bunny as good of a life if they need more room for exercise. So, a smaller breed may enjoy a better quality of life at our home.

Just so you know, it is ILLEGAL to keep a ringtail possum as a pet in Australia!! It is in fact ILLEGAL to keep any Australian wildlife as a pet without a permit, and a ringtail possum is CERTAINLY included in this. If you have a possum, you MUST have a carers permit for it issued by the government

My hamster is very sleepy. But one morning when I went to get him out he lost some fur around his nose. Is he sick? Please let me know.

    How old is he? Does he act normal most of the time? Hamsters are normally nocturnal animals and so they will sleep most of the day while you are awake. As long as he is acting normal, is eating, and has a clean cage I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I live in the Highlands of Scotland and there are always lots of lovely wee wild hedgehogs in my garden every year. I just adore them and not being able to keep a wild one, I went and got an African Pygmy Hedgehog from a rescue organisation for exotic animals. He had been handed in after being removed from a horrible home. He was covered in mites, had lost part of his rear, right foot and was very unhappy and unsettled. I'm happy to say that three months after I got him home to my house he's doing great! I actually have him curled up asleep in my lap as I type! I just love having him and although hedgehogs aren't as affectionate as a dog, they do respond to kindness and consistent handling. I'm so happy that I can see such a big change in Harry's personality - he doesn't huff or ball up anymore and he stretches out and snuggles into the warmth of my body. I have 3 kids who adore him too and being in the Highlands, there aren't too many folk who have one of these wee guys so it's a bit of a novelty to the kids too. I have cows and dogs too and I love all animals but Harry is special because of his background and the change in him.
