I think you should do some research first and see if they are the pet for you.Look at pros and cons of piggies and then you can make your descision.

They are REALLY messy animals,they poop ALOT.They also need vitamin C every single day,as well as fresh hay and veggies.

I agree, you should be the one to make the desicion. There are sevral factors to take into consideration, like do you have enough time for the animals, do you have enough room for the right size cage, and are you prepared for the possible medical costs. And as mentioned before it really does help to do some research so you know what your getting into.

Oh for goodness sake! Here we go again!!! this is another Jomance!! No offense but why come on here shall i get this that and the other? Surely if you really want a pet that badly you will have researched the pet you really want! First its hamsters then guinea pigs and then rats etc. Animals are living breathing things that need a lot of time and care they are NOT TOYS!!!!
