  1. Pig-cessories, part II

    I had fun with another 30-minute guinea pig project: a cozy for my pigs.



    I reinforced the opening with an extra strip of fleece so that it would stay somewhat rigid even after the pigs stepped all over it, as they so enjoy doing.

    Unfortunately, it came out a little small: only 8"x11" finished. Next time I'm going to try to make one that's about 10"x13" so that they'll have an easier ...

  2. What AWFUL timing!

    So yesterday, my pigs were fine. Everybody was happy and popcorning and having no issues whatsoever. This morning, Fred won't put any weight on his left front paw at all. I have an exam at nine that I absolutely cannot miss, but if he isn't better when I get back, and I doubt he will be, I'll be skipping my afternoon classes to take him to the vet.

    I hate it when I have pigmergencies on days like this.... I'll have to have my boyfriend keep an eye on him until I get back and then ...

  3. Woohoo! I'm almost a proud gerbil parent.

    These gerbils have been in the works for about a week now. Towards the end of last week, my boyfriend decided he wanted gerbils. So over the weekend, I looked on Petfinder.com to try to find some close to us, in hopes that we could get them from a rescue or shelter instead of the petstore. My boyfriend isn't quite as on-board to the whole "rescuing animals" thing as I am, so had I not found one I'm not sure how long I could have kept him from going to the pet store.

    Thankfully, ...

  4. I'm Pig-cessorizing: cute, cuddly crafts.

    A few days ago, I made my first of quite a few crafts for the pigs: first was an adorable fleece tunnel that I made with a brown inside fabric and a green monkey fabric on the outside:



    I really like this tunnel because of how stiff it stays, even though there's no batting/foam/anything inside of it. My pigs won't run through anything that they cant see to the end ...

  5. Uhaul blanket liner fun

    Well, I finished my second cage liner today and did a cage change, they'll be going in the wash tonight and I'll be seeing how my first uhaul blanket cage liner does. I wasnt' tremendously impressed with it as compared to my fleece and towels before; I think I should have added another layer of uhaul blanket. The only problem area was the kitchen, which I'll be fixing today.

    After work I'm going to wal-mart to get some type of plastic bin (like a cat litter box) that I can use for ...
