    Fleece: Re: which would be better?

    When choosing how to layer your Zorb, bear in mind what it's use will be or what you want it to do. If you are trying to keep the bottom of the cage dry (underneath the piggie bedspread) then you may...

    Fleece: Re: which would be better?

    I used the material called Zorb. It can be used as a middle layer between 2 layers of fleece, OR, you can sew a spread that has a layer of fleece, Zorb under that, and PUL fabric under that. The PUL...

    I cut out an opening from a plastic storage box. I put wood pellets inside on the bottom and top it with hay. I also have pellets on the rest of the kitchen level. (They only rarely are both in the...

    Hay: Re: Compressed hay for pigs?

    I like to buy fresh bales from a feed store -- rather than hay that is packaged in plastic. A bale weighs over 100 lbs and is super cheap (about $16). I get it when it looks green and fresh. It's...

  8. Cage: Re: Leaking water bottles ruining our cage, whats a good non leak bottle we can use?

    Yeah. Need a heavy ceramic bowl. (or the kind that twists into a clamp)
  9. Cage: Re: Leaking water bottles ruining our cage, whats a good non leak bottle we can use?

    I kept a bowl below the spout of the water bottle (I also used fleece). They then had the option of drinking the drips in the bowl as well. Kept my fleece dry!

    Grids Re: Worried about grid size

    Just wanted to chime in a little that I liked having a second level for the "kitchen" area. It is where they had a hay box, food and water bowl. I had girls though so the ramp wasn't an issue.

    Introductions: Re: First time guinea pig owner

    It isn't necessary to cover a guinea pig cage at night. I never did.

    It sounds like ferrets aren't as handle-able as rats? That they are more interested in exploring? Is this correct?
