    Lone guinea pig - what to do?

    Solo Piggy

    Hey guys,I wasn't sure where to post this one so I'm going with daily care! I'm a Mum to a solo pig, Sunny. Yep, that's right, I have one boar. I know it's ideal to keep two pigs or more for company, and I'll admit I was worried as to how he would get on by himself. My intention is to wait...
