Hi! My name is Callie and I have 2 pigs! Their names are Polka and Dot and they are each 1 year and a half. I got them for my birthday, and my mom got them from a pet store. I would have gotten them from a shelter, but my mother didn't know about pet stores. So, sorry about that. :(

Anyway, when I first got the pigs, I had no idea about C&C cages or anything in the guinea pig world, including fleece! However, I started doing research, and within a year, my pigs were happily in a Jumbo sized cage with a loft from The Guinea Pig Zone! It has been amazing! I then got into the world of fleece, and it has been so much better for the guinea pigs. I am soon getting Fleece Flippers and other accessories from The Guinea Pig Market. Yippee!!!!

I also have other pets, a bunny named Fenway, a hamster named Balloon, a fish named Harry, two cats named Cookie and Caramel, and a dog named Daisy.

I hope to find knowledge and support on this forum, and I can't wait to start to learn!!!!! I hope to make many friends!!!! :grouphug:


Love,
Callie and her Pigs

Another Polka pigture. She looks a bit evil, because of the red eyes, but all in all she looks pretty ok!

I would, but we don't have Joann's here in the UK! :grumpy: It's a shame, I really do need some new fleece.

Lol, sorry about that! That really is too bad, but I'm sure you guys have better fleece than us Americans do! Good luck finding new fleece though!

Thank you! But we really don't have better fleece. Or grids, or coroplast or anything. Everything is super expensive, and quite hard to find.

Welcome! They are some cute piggies :)

We NEED a Joanns or they at least need to ship international! My piggies demanded that they needed the M&M's fleece so I have to get it shipped to my friend in Buffalo so she can pick it up for me when she visits her family next month! Very little cool fleece over here :(

Well thank you! He was named by a 4-year old, from the previous owners. I couldn't imagine him having any other name though. :o And I really like Polka & Dot! That was a really cute and clever idea. lol
