What is wrong with people! I get so annoyed with people that make a fuss about eating free range chook eggs but then go on and keep their animals like this.

Ok I'm in a really bad mood today..and I contacted the girl from the ad asking if she kept them like this and what the size dimensions were. Anyway got a rude reply lol (which I expected) telling me that it's acceptable to house rabbits and guinea pigs together like this and that's why they sell you the cages. YES that's right people pet shops know best cos they are purely interested in animal welfare and not profits. Also got told I have mental issues hahahaha I should know better than to do this but today is not one of those days. :stoptheinsanity:

Good on you m.boo, you probably won't be the last person to contact her regarding this awful set up. The only insane person is that STUPID MORON for thinking it acceptable to house these poor animals in such terrible cramped conditions. God, I just really want to slap people sometimes. Well, If you have mental problems because you think that the cage is not acceptable, then you are not alone.LOL!

Yes, I know exactly what you mean about wanting to save these little mites Kris. Just makes you want to scoop them up in your arms and get as far away as you can from their old life.

Ok I will have my say and it is not aimed at anyone person when I say this it is just a general thing....

Yes the cage is too small and yes as most of us know rabbits and pigs should not be housed together, But when you look at the cage and the animals to me they dont look sick or unhealthy the cage is clean with bedding down the bottom.

Now we dont know this person and we cant see what else she has set up, she might have a area where the animals run free with in the house or yard and this is just a photo she did to show the lot, we should not judge people by one photo.

If the animals and cage where filthy and the pigs looked sick then yes it is not the bset thing for them.

If people are doing what they think is the best thing for their pets then I can understand why they would get upset if they get contacted to say that what they are doing is wrong, as far as the owners know they are looking after their pets with the information that they have got, it does not mean that they are bad pet owners, just havent found the right information yet.

I have come across a lot of people that really do love there animals and have no idea on what they are doing to the pet or the way they are looking after it is not the best way to care for them, but they do love them.

Also what is the wrong way for one person may not be the wrong way for the other person.

As I have said this is not aimed at anyone person and as we are all different in how we feel and deal with things that we see as that is humane nature and what makes a person who they are, I think what I would like to ask is that we all stop and ask ourselfs a few questions before we decide that someone we dont know is a bad pet owner.

I've just seen the ad and must admit I think it's extremely cramped conditions for two animals as as well.

With an ad like this I may reply but first I'd reply stating 'advice' in a professional/polite manner just in case the person had been misinformed on space needed for their pets etc as sometimes yes the people do get the wrong info from the wrong place etc and I'd mention this as well about petshops and their experience or rather lack of in small pets and that they are their for business at the end of the day. I'd also give them a link to the ACS Website and show them some of the newer hutches on the market.

From here if they reply in an abusive manner atl east they have a way to reach a source on correct info and yeah I guess tehre's nothing you can really do sadly. Hopefully with a professional approach we can get through to some people, sadly not in all cases.

Is anyone from the forum able to get this bun and piggy?

Sorry guys I didn't expect the poor girl to go on a be harrassed. Like I said I was in a bad mood and didn't have my thinking cap on and I would never do this any other day, just yesterday lol. However emails can always be taken the wrong way and in this case it was. I had considered sending an ACS link and explain the pet shop thing but thought prob not best if she thinks I'm a crazy person already. It's just the cage she has for sale and not the animals. Sorry, I had the guilts about doing this too...I had my kranky pants on yesterday.

i think people got the wrong idea My email was not harrassing i asked what size it and if the rabbit and piggie come with it. Also asked if could house a rat or 2 (my friend has adopted a set of girls from a young girl who didnt want them cause they smelt and they came in a tiny fish tank) I also asked if the acccesories came with it and if it was nearest offer on the price.

I havent heard back but there was no way i could offend her asking thous questions.

Is anyone from the forum able to get this bun and piggy?


I do live in Adelaide and she is close enough to do a trip up. But i havent heard back on her intentions of sale.

It's just the cage she has for sale and not the animals.
did she say this?

You make a valid point Shiralee and it's always a good thing to point out a different perspective on a situation as I wouldn't have seen it through your eyes otherwise. In hind sight my comment [ stupid moron] was mean and I was wrong for saying it, for that out burst I'm sorry. We all learn something new everyday and hopefully that's what makes us better people.
