Question

Hi! I was just wondering if anyone knew how to get 2 piggies to
co-exist peacefully? We want our pigs Lizzie & Sunshine to live together, but every time we let them play together they fight & chatter! Sunny gets along w/ my sisters friends piggie and my rabbit, but Lizzie seems to be a loner. I really want a friend 4 Sunny but I cant buy any more piggies. Any advice?
Thanks!

Thanks for the webpage. But when Sunny & Lizzie get close to each other they do the "Full Battle" like the web page describes. We introduce them on nuetral territory too... But some times right after they take a bath they will snuggle together in a towel for a few minutes and they look like little egg rolls LOL, (a sign of hope?!) but after a while they go back into attack mode. Should I give up on them living together, cause I dont want anyone hurt?
Thanks!

Yeah, mine still occasionally squabble when someone steals the "best" piece of hay, or drags the pigloo over the pellet bowl and doesn't let anyone else eat

Thumbs up

Sometimes patience is the hardest part. When my Ginger started chirping daily (calling the mothership?) I thought she may have been lonely. I introduced a little friend and it wasn't love at first sight between those two girls, but after awhile Ginger got all motherly to Binkie and Binkie loved it.
It was always a race who got to the chicory first etc, but they became inseperable.
