    Re: Rest Well Sweet boy

    My sympathy to you scoottie. I lost Lacey a month ago, so I understand completely how difficult it is. I hope your memories of good times will help to ease the saddness. Take care of yourself.
  2. Behavior: Re: What can I do to make my guinea pigs less bored?

    Another way to add some activity is a snuffle mat. I made one out of fleece. It's just a square of fleece with strips of fleece sewn on the top. I hide veggies in it so my guinea pig has to forage to...

    Cage: Re: Scored 25 grids for $3 for my cage!

    If you have enough grids, they make a great temporary fence for floor time. Just use zip ties to attach them, then they can be folded out of they way when not in use. Put them in an oval or circle...
  4. Behavior: Re: What can I do to make my guinea pigs less bored?

    Rearrange the hideys, food, and water each day for mental stimulation. Guinea pigs memorize routes to food and to escape, so they will do a few walk-throughs to make sure they can get to safety in a...

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    That’s wonderful! He must be a happy piggy and feeling good. Those piggies of yours are so lucky.
  6. Sad: Re: It's been a year since you were abandoned in a fried chicken box

    I remember you first posting about the two of them. Both were lucky you took them in and cared for them. Bruin got to experience comfort, love, and a full tummy with you. And Little Bear and Gimbly...
  7. Pellets: Re: Are Oxbow pellets still considered a good brand?

    I got the Oxbow Essentials for Lacey. I tried the Garden Select and she loved them until I bought another bag, and then wasn't interested. They smelled so good when I opened the bag - like fresh...

    Such cute pictures!
  9. Congested: Re: Info please about nasal polyps in piggy with presumptive URI

    Thank you for the kind words. I miss Lacey, she was a sweetheart.

    I adopted a 5-month-old who was seized by Animal Control and her name is Gidget.

    Eyes: Re: Little Bear's ouchie eye

    Thanks for the update on Little Bear. It sounds like healing well - I hope he continues to do well.
  11. Congested: Re: Info please about nasal polyps in piggy with presumptive URI

    I hear you. A few weeks ago I had to say goodbye to Lacey, who was just over 5 years old. I noticed sometimes she would chew on the side of her mouth like she had something caught, then it would...
  12. Congested: Re: Info please about nasal polyps in piggy with presumptive URI

    Agreed, Guinea Pig Papa. I'm doing the same. I find that timothy varies regardless of the brand, and sometimes the bag seems to be nothing more than coarse stalks. I've read in a few places that...
  13. Congested: Re: Info please about nasal polyps in piggy with presumptive URI

    You can also try taking the hay outside in a large container or garbage can, and pulling it apart, shaking it, and fluffing it up to get the dust out. I've had some hay that seemed dusty and this...

    Play: Re: Tunnel recomendations

    The grid tunnels work great. I sewed several covers for mine so I have different colors.

    Another option I use are the stack and nest storage bins from Dollar Tree. Flip them over and they make...
  15. Fleece: Re: Thinking of making a fleece liner and need tips and help!

    The fleece is a good choice, I prefer the anti-pill plush because it's thicker, has a nice texture, and washes well.

    I have not used Zorb fabric, but from the reviews it looks like it shrinks....
  16. Bedding: Re: Shredded paper bedding and/or waterproof bed pads under fleece?

    I have a homemade grid cage. The base is a wood frame and I lined that up the sides with types fabric, which is just a waterproof mattress cover. I put two incontinence pads overlapping a bit, and up...

    Re: Guinea Pigs in Peru

    Peru is a poor country with an unstable government and drug cartels producing cocaine. The quality of life there is poor with a large population living in poverty. One way to generate income and...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    If her appetite is coming back that’s great. One way to prevent bumble foot is to get her moving around more. So maybe scatter food around the cage so she forages.

    When Lacey was ill, she had red...

    Lethargy: Re: Sort of lethargic guinea pig?

    Is this vet clinic an exotics clinic or just small animal clinic? The vets I have gone to don't use rectal thermometers. They take temperatures using a digitial thermometer and scan in the ear canal....

    Behavior: Re: Won't Get Back Down Ramp?

    Is the ramp fairly steep? Guinea pigs really have no depth perception and can't see below their jaw line, so she might think she's going to fall.

    Fleece: Re: Getting hair out of fleece in the dryer

    As Guinea Pig Papa said, fabric softener sheets or liquid will cause issues with absorbency. If hair is really imbedded in the fleece, you may want to try a different type of fleece, such as the...
  22. Cleaning: Re: Real-world feedback on fleece cage lining, please!

    I've found that the plush anti-pill fleece works best for me. It's a little silkier in texture so the hay doesn't get imbedded in the fabric. It's a little thicker, hold it's color longer, and washes...
  23. Bedding: Re: Shredded paper bedding and/or waterproof bed pads under fleece?

    I have something similar, they are waterproof incontinence bed pads that are washable. I use a layer of fleece on the top and I don't sew them together. Everything is easier to wash when it's all...
