    Tomorrow the piggies, and all the other critters who live in the piggy room, will be moving abode into a bigger room, giving me more space for storage etc. I'll post up pics tomorrow from start to finish. I am so excited, even more so because I'll have a straight C&C cage instead of an L shape so no more struggling to get into the corners!

    I do admit though I will miss the old piggy room, it's been a good faithful critter room for nearly 5 years but now will be retired to the spare sleepover room :)

    Your piggies will think they live in a palace.

    My piggies and I are very jealous! Would love to see pics (although I won't show it to them in case they get ideas) :)

    Oooo how exciting that sounds. What other critters do you have? I have five hamsters and four rabbits oh and two dogs! 4 hamsters are in my bedroom and one in the dinning room with the guinea pigs. Wabbits live out in a shed/run. Dogs are with us.

    I have four gerbils, a dwarf ham and 4 giant african land snails. Moving into this room will allow me to use my other two spare tanks so either two new groups of gerbils or a group of gerbils and a pair of mice :)

    Ooh African Land Snails have been fascinating me recently, I don't know much about them yet but have considered getting one myself. Are they as smelly as people say?

    I wish I knew somewhere to see them, but I think the only way people get them around here is online and I'm not sure I'd be too happy about ordering a living creature online lol.

    I might see if we have one I've not heard of, good idea. The best exotic reptile & fish place in the area shut down a while ago which left a big gap between hamsters and pythons haha.
