View Full Version : Georgie, Lola and me

05-11-06, 06:38 am
My name is Inge and I have two cavies, named Georgie & Lola. Georgie is a red-white peruvian and Lola is cream coloured with short, smooth hair.
They're both sows. I'd really like to post some pictures of them and of their cage, but I can't because I don't have a digital camera yet!
I built them a cage of white laminated panels, since I couldn't find cubes and coroplast ANYWHERE in the Netherlands! :sad:
Their cage is 200 cm by 80 cm (I believe that's 6,5 feet by 2,5 feet?)
And they have floor time everyday and a lot of lap time!
I really love my cavies and I love this site! There are so many great ideas on this site!

Welcome to the forums. I'm sure you will learn all you need to know.

Welcome to the forum. I'm new myself and find this is an informative and very supportive group.
I've been fascinated by the posts from around the world -- noting you are from the Netherlands. I think I have assumed "everyone" has access to the same supplies worldwide. It's been an eye opener to realize other areas and other countries have challenges with supplies that I take for granted.
I would love to see some pigtures of your girls when you can.

Welcome to the group. I had a girly named Lola but she recently passed away. I can't wait to see pigtures of your girls. This is a very informative group. I hope you find it very useful in raising your little girls.

Welcome, welcome, welcome. I'm pretty new, too. I've been helped so much by the fellow posters and I am sure you'll find a lot of useful info here as well. Get that camera soon, so we can see the pictures of your cage - it sounds interesting and different - and of course your piggies! A lot of people use different kind of material, I would just suggest looking at the gallery for ideas on non C&C cages - a lot of people don't use cloroplast for instance, I'm sure you'll figure it out!

Hi! Welcome to the forum. I'm pretty new as well myself! Georgie & Lola sound really nice, it's funny one of my guinea pigs sound just like Lola! His brother is cream as well but he's a longhaired. Georgie sounds like a really beautiful colour, I didn't have much of a colour choice choosing my two!

An alternitive to coroplast is linoleum.

Thank you all for the warm welcome!
I like this site a lot (and I am a bit addicted to it! But that's because I love cavies so much and I'd never thought there would be a site like this one!)
I thought of linoleum, but I used shelves that are 100% waterproof and I used a silicon kit to close all the little spaces.
I hope I'll get a camera very soon!
