My daughter(almost 9) recently lost a male guinea pig that we all adored.
His name was Brownie, and he was a sweet, loving pet. We always took good care of him but we did not have any luck on getting him to chew and his teeth overgrew. After taking him to the vet for not eating and a runny eye, the vet decided to put him under so they could file his overgrown teeth down. He passed away shortly after he came home from surgery He was almost 3 years old....
About a month later we decided to get 2 guinea pigs, both male from the same litter. So far, so good. One has assumed dominancy and they seem to like their new home.
I have several questions....what kind of bedding is best? We are using Aspen right now but I am pondering using fleece. Can you use regular fleece fabric? I have a ton as I am a seamstress so I was just curious if it could be any old fleece. Also...for the C&C cages, how easy it to make and how expensive? Currently, they have a 17" by 40" cage with a platform....
I also bought them some chewing toys but so far it doesn't look like they have chewed them. I do NOT want the same thing to happen to them as Brownie. My daughter was heartbroken as was I to lose him.
Thanks for any ideas, and info
Oh, btw, we have had our new guinea pigs, Stitch and Oreo for four days now.
