    It sounds like you have quite the furry family! Your cat reminds me of a dog we had, a fox terrier mix. I called her my Velcro dog because she always had to be touching me. Then if I looked over at...

    Hay: Re: Should the hay be sealed?

    It should have some air so it doesn't get moldy. Most of the bags have air holes in them, or you can transfer to an open container. Just make sure it's food safe. I use a large container made for dog...

    Play: Re: New pigs aren't interested in floortime

    I would keep trying with the floor time, and maybe drape some fabric over a few corners so they feel safe. They’re still getting used to their new home.

    My guinea pig’s favorite thing in the whole wide world is watermelon. She will do circles, the she rips it out of my hand and takes off for her hidey.

    Diet: Re: Quick question

    I would also keep an eye on the parsley and cilantro they are getting. Both are high in calcium and some pigs are prone to urinary tract stones. The leaf lettuce and peppers are good and should...

    I would start by cutting out the veggies, since they can contribute to bloat and loose poops. She will need to be eating hay so she gets enough fiber to help get her digestion back on track. I would...

    Biting: Re: My guinea pig is biting me

    If she was sitting on your lap or being held for a while, she may be fussing because she has to go to the bathroom. Mine does that. She's fine for maybe 5 minutes, then she stares at me and pulls on...

    Fighting: Re: My piggies have a love/hate relationship.

    Her name is Lacey and this is by far her favorite hidey. She hunches her shoulders and drags it with her, pops her head out to have hay, and back she goes. If I put two bins in the cage, she lines...

    Level of Effort: Re: What is better for homemade c&c cage?

    Then the flooring should be okay. And it sounds like the fencing is what we call hardware cloth in the U.S. The squares are about 1/2 inch or a little smaller than the end of your finger.

    Level of Effort: Re: What is better for homemade c&c cage?

    The yoga mats are waterproof foam. I use those for the dog to stand on when I groom him. They are soft and give him good footing. They are not absorbent so they are easy to wipe clean.
