We "inherited" a whingey pig from my friend two years ago, when she went on holiday and we babysat it for her. The DC were very taken with her, so my friend let us keep her. Previous to that, she had had the whingey for three years. I thought they only lived for a few years.

So how long do they live for? Or do I have an everlasting one?

<Note, I don't want her to die any time soon>

grin picky

I was debating getting her a friend, as saw the coolest one with what looked like a Simon Cowell hair cut. She looks like Rod Stewart at the minute, because I've just cut her fringe so she can see where she is going, and so we can tell her front end from her back.

I think I might go and get Simon then grin

be careful - if a female guinea hasnt had babies by the time she's 2, maybe younger, her pelvis will fuse and she will be unableto give birth without a C section at vets = MUCHUS money.

but yes, get simon...
