Why does my sister not care for her animals?

She has ten guinea pigs, and shares a bunny with me (I also have one guinea pig). One of her pigs went missing two days ago, and she does not care at all, and is planning to buy another. She breeds her pigs, despite the dangers, and she feeds them about half a carrot each every two days! I keep telling her to look after them better, and not to have so many, but she's just gone and put the male and female in the same hutch again. The hutches are crowded and there are too many animals in each one. And now she's getting a PREGNANT FEMALE rabbit and putting it with our MALE rabbit, and is perfectly fine with it. She's planning on putting SIX pigs in one 2x.5 metre hutch! You have no idea how much this frustrates me, her not caring for them in any way! I even considered setting most of her pigs free, simply so they would endure what she forces them too. The worst part is I can't do a thing about it, and my mum doesn't realise what is happening. But really, she's putting a pregnant female with our male, and getting a new pig to replace the one she lost TWO DAYS AGO! Does she even care AT ALL? And what do I do about this?!?

Sounds like something you need to talk to her about. If she won't listen, or straighten up, then it's time to bring it to your parents attention. This is pretty serious stuff.

Sounds like the beginnings of a psychopath! Call the SPCA!

Probably shouldn't release them, they're not going to survive. Can you feed them yourself? Take over care of them and put them in larger cages, keep the bunnies separated. If nothing else, and it was me...they'd all disappear mysteriously one fine day. There would be a sudden influx at the animal shelter. Seriously, when it comes to animals I do what is best for the animal and forget about the neglectful owner. I have picked up outdoor cats that were sick or injured and taken them to the vet, then kept them myself. I once saw a little puppy running loose on a very busy street at dusk. This was right after Christmas and I'm sure it was someone's present---dont' care, it wouldn't last 5 minutes on that street. I took it home, fed it, defleaed it, and the shelter took it the next day. They assured me it would find a good home because it was just a little puppy and very cute. I will not tolerate cruelty to animals. I'm glad you're there for that group of furbabies!
