I am going to be gone for less than 48 hours, so I was wondering if I need to hire someone to watch my piggy. Ideally I would like to give my piggy two days worth of pellets, lots of hay, and a full bottle of water. Instead of having someone come over and feed her once. I would like to know if I can do this, and if this would be bad for her.

because food and water needs to be fresh everyday, and because hay needs to be topped up through the day and the living area spot cleaning done at least once daily, i'd say no. also, if your piggy became ill aswell then that suddenly becomes a long time to be alone for.

Sorry, it's a no from me as well. (It's like being on X factor!)

I'd worry about my piggies left alone for that long, just because I can't keep an eye in them, but then there's the fresh water, veggies and a top up of hay
