I was in my basement looking for a piece of wood for a gate for my hamster, and it hit me. This could be one amazing foortime set-up. There is a very large open area, its like 12ft by 14 ft (its supposed to be a bedroom) and it has another area attached to it that like 5ft by 5ft (suppossed to be a closet), the only problem is that there are no complete walls around it, as its not completely finished it is just "framed in", so I'd have to come up with some sorta gate to put around it, but It would be pretty easy since 2 of the walls are the outside ones and have drywall on them. Well anyways I wanna make it into a huge floortime setup. I would obviously make it pig safe and I would cover the concrete with blankets, but I am wanting suggestions on what to put in the space. What are you piggys favorite toys? I have tunnels, hideys, a box filled with shredded paper, and cozys already. But do you have any other ideas as to what to put in it. I have tons of wood and other building materials (my dad is a contractor) and I also have tons (literally hundreds maybe even a thousand) of boxes, all different sizes from shoeboxes to huge 3ft by 3ft by 5 ft boxes. I also have tons of hay (most a a full square bale) and any ideas of how to make it into something fun. Also, I know that its not good to house Guinea Pig in an unfinished basement, but it is okay for floortime, right? It is a walkout so there are 2 full sized windows in the future floortime space and a few others near it. The only problem is that it isn't heated...?
