The little metal balls and spring fell out of the metal tube part of the bottle while I was cleaning the bottle. I simply put them back in, balls first, then spring. The bottle seems to work just fine and water comes out, but I wanted to double check just in case that what I did was okay and I don't immediately need another bottle. Also, is it okay to leave a bottle with the same water for 2 days if you cant change it one day for some reason?

Did they fall out the end they drink from or the other one (inside of the screw top)? If the former I wouldn’t give it to them again.

Water must be refreshed daily. Is there someone who could do it for you if you’re away?

It fell out the part that attaches to the screw top, not the part that comes in contact with their mouth. It appears as if the bottle's tip is designed so the hole where they drink from is too small for the balls to fall out. It's because occasionally if I can't change it for one day I just leave the water in the bottle and I wanted to make sure she doesn't get hurt by me doing this.

It needs to be changed every day. If you’re there you need to do it.

Piggies are very social and need companionship of their own kind. Are you planning to get her a friend(preferably rescue dating)?

I'm planning on rehoming her. I would get a second one in a heartbeat but I'm scared I'll mess up. If you could tell me some ways to rehome her, that'd be appreciated. I know I need two, but I don't know if I can do that for her.

What is it you think you’ll mess up? the most important factor is character compatibility between the piggies so you can’t just put two piggies together and expect it to be ok. If you have a rescue centre available to you, then some offer dating. The centre can help try your piggy with other piggies until a suitable match is found.

if you do decide to rehome her, then surrendering her to a shelter/rescue centre is best. They will ensure she is bonded with another piggy and that her new owners are suitable, knowledgeable and have a good sized cage etc

I'm scared they'll fight and hurt each other or that they'll make the cage way more messy and I wont handle the situation right. I did plan on getting a second one at one point, and got her a new cage and stuff so she could get a companion, but I didn't feel prepared. Would The Humane Society be a good choice to rehome her? I don't know of many other rescues in my area. I'll keep looking.

they will only fight if they arent compatible. This is where bonding with the help of a rescue centre is valuable as some do the bonding for you And you only bring home a second piggy if they like each other.

yes a humane society would be a good place to surrender her to
