  1. Behavior: Re: My guinea pigs are acting different then normal

    Another suggestion for warmth -- try draping a light blanket over half of their cage. (Not the whole thing.) That can help keep drafts away while still allowing for air flow.
  2. Chat Re: Be honest...do you eat as well as your pigs?

    I'd say Tannim probably eats better than I do, but I am eating better than I did before I adopted him -- like ItsaZoo said, the produce around the house encourages me to eat more salads myself. Now...

    C&C: Re: Can I use milk cartons as a stand?

    I don't see why not -- milk cartons (crates) are pretty sturdy. Especially if you zip tie them really well. I'd put them with the open side down and not stack them more than one layer high (two tops,...

    C&C: Re: How Many C&C Pieces Should I Buy?

    IDK on the posting rules... I'd think that since you've said it's just temporary until you can construct a larger cage that it'd be okay, but that's just my opinion. So guessing 4 feet by 7 feet?...

    C&C: Re: How Many C&C Pieces Should I Buy?

    The math actually isn't too bad. C&C cages are calculated by number of pieces rather than actual dimensions. (The dimensions come in when you're trying to figure what size cage you can fit into a...

    Possibly Pregnant: Re: HELP my piggy is likely pregnant and getting close to time. No clue what to do!

    Someone with more knowledge of guinea pig genitals can give you a better answer than me, but... there is the possibility that your princess is a neutered prince. I totally irritated Tannim by...

    Re: Shes here!

    petluv -- which kind of Oxbow pellets do you have? I use the Oxbow Essentials, but there's also Garden Select, and I've heard that some piggies don't like the taste of the Garden Select. If that's...
  11. Fleece: Re: What should I use for cleaning fleece bedding?

    I'm doing sort of the same thing myself right now (crib liners), and I have a question. Do you have any trouble with the absorbent layer slipping under the fleece, or does it stay put okay? I taped...

    I've seen this and wondered myself... I wasn't sure about the "puffed" stuff. As for the marigolds, I know Kaytee makes a Timothy Hay Plus that has marigolds in it and their new Food from the Wild...

    I agree with MerryFriarTuck... that's looking worse, and it definitely sounds like an injury as opposed to just an odd nail. Poor baby... Do keep us updated!
