    Re: How much chasing is too much?

    How about:

    Put Jasper upstairs.

    Put Bacon downstairs, but block off the last cube, so Bacon gets a 5x2.

    This way Jasper can go downstairs, and hang out in the 1x2 next to bacon if he wants...

    Re: How much chasing is too much?

    Nevermind. I just saw your huge cage pic.

    I can't imagine how one pig could dominate all that space! How old is he?

    Maybe add more pellet bowls? Looks like there is enough hay and water in...

    Re: How much chasing is too much?

    Can you add a loft/second level to the cage? Another water/pellet/hay station that is in a different area may help. You could also try "mostly" dividing the cage. Like have two halves, which two...

    Re: Depressed Guinea?

    Is she the super-hidey type, or just flopped? I think six months in a sick box would make anybody depressed. Give her some time to snap out of it. Lots of hiding is typical of piggies that are not...

    Re: Penny is a BORED piggy...

    If you're really worried about cage-mate compatibility, go with a very young female, or adopt from a rescue that will let you try another if they don't get along.

    I don't find this that shocking. Friends of friends ditching on responsibilities after their interests are served. It is all too trite. Do yourself a favor and trust your instincts.

    You can only have one male if there are females in the cage. If you want to adopt more than one male, then consider adding another cage.
