I regularly trawl the Gumtree Guinea-Pigs site (I know, not good for my blood pressure) but it's a bit like an online P@H Adoption Cage (without me bothering to leave the house)

Why do so many sellers request that the Buyer Collects/ Collection Only.

Some say they don't drive (fair do ) but don't they care where their beloved pet ends up?

Do they just take the money (or give away for free) and not wonder or worry where they are going to live?

I shouldn't look should I?

I don't go on there for that reason. It's just too heartbreaking. If I win the jackpot tonight I'll rescue them all though and house them in piggie luxury and employ my SFA chums as piggie slaves to cater to their every whimwink

Some of the sellers are breeders ( I wonder how they justify the breeding and well being of their stock with Buyer Collect)

I didn't have a Home Check with the 70 hogs but I took videos and photos of their living accomodation and my garden.

If I win the Lottery tonight I would have a millionty guineas. DH would go ballistic and run away from home.
I'd need to get someone in to fix the computer but hey! , I'd be rich.
