    @GPP, all your boys that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge were such characters and I loved reading your posts. However Punkin was one of the first that I saw on this site and totally captured my...

    I use fleece but for vacation coverage, I've always used CareFresh, since the poos fall down into the crevices. Another reason why I started taking the pigs to the pet store for boarding is that the...

    Hay: Re: KMS Bluegrass hay

    That is true the corrugated box is part of the 3 lb. However, because there are less brown hay than other brands I've bought, it somewhat offsets the weight of the box and their hay isn't dusty. ...

    Hay: Re: KMS Bluegrass hay

    The last time I bought KMS Bluegrass was Nov 2020 and it was terrible. The outside layer looked good but once you get past the outside, the inside was brown and very dusty. I think I still have a...
  8. Bonding: Re: Bonding - How Long for Introduction to New Pig

    @bpatters, thank you for the helpful information. My brother used to help me whenever I went on vacation but he did not do a good job of picking up the poos and soiled bedding, so I switched to the...
  9. Pellets: Re: Are Oxbow pellets still considered a good brand?

    I prefer KMS Hayloft pellets over Oxbow and received my 5 lbs order last week. I will be ordering another 5 lbs in a month so that I won't run out.

  11. Sad: Re: It's been a year since you were abandoned in a fried chicken box

    Thank you for the recap. I was following Bruin and Little Bear's journey from the beginning. But due to my poor memory, I had forgotten chunks of it and the recap was very helpful to fill in the...
  12. Bedding: Re: My report after switching from shredded paper to aspen bedding.

    I use GuineaDad fleece liners, with almost the entire outer edges lined with various size pee pads, which I switch out every 2 days. When I first took on the piggies, I used CareFresh for over a...
  13. Pellets: Re: Changing Pellet Brands: Sherwood Pellets (Yay or Nay?)

    The KMS site is accepting pellet orders but you can only order 2 or 5 lbs. I ordered a week ago and still waiting for it to be shipped. If you want KMS pellets, make sure you order well before your...

    And the author lives in Southern California where there are a number of guinea pig rescues, including the huge LA Guinea Pig Rescue. No reason to buy a piggy from PetSmart. I will look to see if...
  15. Congested: Re: Info please about nasal polyps in piggy with presumptive URI

    @KAT123, if you are looking to switch to orchard grass, you might want to try the GuineaDad hay. Their hay goes through a dust filter which helps tremendously. For me, the only drawback is that it...

    Behavior: Re: Pea Flakes

    @inks88, I understand pea flakes are fattening therefore limiting to 1-2 daily. I put a few extras into the pellet dish only because my pigs weren't eating them. Had they started to eat them, I...

    I'm so very sorry that your hamster has passed. He was lucky enough to have multiple pet parents that really cared and took good care of him.
