    A friend ended up with a piglet on her doorstep. She wants to give it to us. We have heard mixed stories about them; anyone
    have experiences to share? Advice? What do they eat? How much work are they? Pros and cons? We have a lot of critters already and
    I am having some doubts about this....

    Personaly I have only owned one many years ago.We lived in surburbia then. We had actualy gotten the pig litter trained etc. She was fine when We were home but after a few week's started distructing the house while We were at work.She didn't like being left alone.She ate wallpaper from wall's tore up I don't know how much linoleum!.Ate light's off Xmas tree!But when we got home she didnt bother anything.We did have to place her or probably wouldnt have had a house left..I have wanted another since we bought this place 6 years ago since we had outside area for one. But... never happened.Maybe someone else has had better experience with them. Maybe someone else will post.
