...anymore piggies!
For the sake of my marriage (lol) I'm not allowed anymore, were closing our doors at 11. We would not be able to afford to keep anymore as regards to food, vet bills etc and my hubby really doesnt want anymore. In fact its been a fight to have my last few!
Anyone else on a piggy ban? :))

I am down to 2 piggies and 1 turtle. I had 2 turtles, 2 frogs and 2 piggies but lost the two frogs last year :( and had to rehome one turtle as he was getting too big and was gonna start munching my wee stunted turtle :( but I'm still not allowed anything more.

I want more piggies, a bird of prey and a dog. Not sure I'll get all of them eventually but I think she is coming round on the dog idea (once we've done some work on the house - builders plus new dog is not a good mix) and she has changed her mind on bird of prey from 'no' to 'not yet' once she met a few of my owl friends....

I am planning on asking her if we can foster piggies for the RSPCA in Walsall as they are desperate for foster homes and with any luck she will say yes and then take a shine ot one of our foster piggies and my herd will grow ...

mwah ha ha ha (evil laughter) piggie resistance is futile!

we've only got 2, but don't think my OH would have anymore unless they were in the garden as we're limited on room!

In all honesty, between having 2 young kids and 2 piggies and trying to keep on top of the house etc I don't feel like I have the time or energy to give enough attention to any more pets!

What, no more ever? You can't let him get away with that, allergic or not. Time to put your foot down Audrey. xx

That's really sensible, and the best attitude. I find time the biggest commitment, and I'm sure it's better to have two incredibly loved pigs, than more that you haven't really got time for. xx

I keep looking wistfully at piggies for rescue on here, would love some more to add to our 2 but so far husband is saying no! Having said that, I don't think our pair (girls) would take kindly to new friends and we are getting a cat from a relative that can no longer look after it, so I think that is probably enough for now. Besides, Misty and Storm have got used to their current status with everything revolving around them so I don't think they would be impressed with anyone else fighting for fuss and attention too!

Hubby has more or less given up by #11 (there was not much more than "and how are you planning to fit the new one in here?")... :)) But I feel that I do have pretty much as many as I am prepared to cope with, financially, timewise and spacewise. Not excepting one very special piggy crossing my path, but certainly not looking actively for more!
