I don't have any, but I get my daily pig stories from a friend at work, who has 2- Nappy and Winkie. Winkie just turned 5 and Nappy is 2 or 3. From her stories, i think I may have to get one someday :)

I have two piggies!:D A rex female who is an odd eye. She has one green eye and one brown eye, and then a male rosetted. I had another, a Abysinnian but I had to give her away because she was nippy and with a five and a half month old son I don't want to take any chances. Here is a pick of the one that I had to give up:( , Her name is Snoopy.

I havent owned any guinea pigs, but I really like them. In 5th grade our class guinea pigs gave birth to 2 little guinea pigs. I got to keep them over Christmas vacation. The babies are soo cute and fun to watch!! :)

After the babies were all grown up our teacher gave one to another teacher and asked if anyone wanted the other one. So I think 3 people wanted it and they picked a name out of a hat to see who whould get it. We also had 2 gerbils and some fish. At the end of the year my teacher gave away the gerbils, I really wanted them but my mom said no.:( But then a couple years later my friend's gerbil down the street had babies and I got one.:):)

Id say yes, except that gerbils (especially mine:rolleyes: ) Seems to never stop chewing. She is so obsessed with chewing, that if she doesnt have something to chew she will start chewing her cage and everything in it (food bowls ect.) :eek: :eek: She can chew up a peice of paper in an instant!:eek:

know that you mention it, i dont think i ever saw a gerbil in a pet store!

I had a guniea pig.. Otto... he was probably the sweetest piggy..he loved to purr when I pet him on the right spot behind his ear, and snuggle up really close under my chin and just stay there, and sleep, or just to hang out with me. He died when he was 4 years.. had to put him down because he was so sick and wouldn't eat or drink ANYTHING.. the most depressing thing I've had to do.. since he was my first pet and all.. That was back in 1998. Here's a picture of Otto..yes.. he was huge, lol..- Rachel
