    Sick: Re: Mumbly and Nouget med thread

    Totally awesome! And I love your description of how tolerant your neutered male is with them... that is so cute!

    Those two definitely fell into the sweet smelling hay with you. Keep up the good...

    Upper Levels: Re: Need help with ideas for guinea pig loft

    The ramps sold at the GuineaPigPages store are 25" long for a 14" rise, which comes out to about 32.6 degrees... I wouldn't go much steeper than that. Especially if one of your pigs doesn't really...

    Fleece: Re: Middles for DIY liners

    Yes, we're all human, and yes, we make mistakes. Still, some terminology is more offensive than others. I got mine off Amazon, and my search term was "washable bed pads".

    We're living in weird...

    Fleece: Re: Middles for DIY liners

    Question: isn't the point of the absorbent layer in the liners to absorb urine? I just got my order of bed pads, but I haven't sewn them into liners yet. The waterproof layer is on the bottom of the...

    I just made some liners using crib changing pads as the absorbent layer, and as soon as my order of reusable bed pads arrives, I'll be making more liners with those. (The crib-sized ones are just a...

    Re: Meet my Pigs! Blind?

    My Tannim has one "blue" eye as well -- he has a cataract on that eye. I've never noticed whether or not the pupil reacts to light, but that eye doesn't reflect red in photos the way the other eye...

    Possibly Pregnant: Re: Abby's medical thread

    petluv -- I would love to adopt one of the babies once they are weaned... Tannim is still an only pig and he would love to have a friend to popcorn with. (Gender doesn't matter; Tannim is neutered.)...
  14. 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.
  15. 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...

    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...

    I just checked Rosewood's website, and they're based in the UK. Maybe some of our friends over there are familiar with the company?
