  1. Cleaning: Re: The best thing I ever did to make cleaning my cage easier is...

    Wow, it's been a while since I've been here. Sadly, I had to return my pigs to the rescue due to my severe (and worsening) mold allergy problems. A very sad day for my daughter and I... But I do...
  2. Allergies: Re: Allergy test for me: what should they test for?

    Thanks everyone for your kind words. We dropped them off this morning to the lady from the guinea pig rescue. So I'm officially no longer a cavy slave : ( But I know it's what I had to do, just...
  3. Allergies: Re: Allergy test for me: what should they test for? - A sad ending : (

    I just wanted to take a minute to tell everyone about my sad decision. After many more months of allergy symptoms, avoiding my pigs and their room, different allergy medications, and trying many...
  4. Cleaning: Re: The best thing I ever did to make cleaning my cage easier is...

    That's pretty much what I did! I actually just hang it over the bar that goes across (that the lid rests on when it's closed). Just because that was the easiest way and fastest to change out when I...
  5. Adopting: Re: Just adopted 2 wonderful guinea pigs but am I allergic?

    I just want to give you my perspective on your allergy troubles. Unfortunately it may not be as easy as everyone describes here.

    I also have allergies and knew it was probably the hay. I tried...
  6. Wood Pellets/Chips: Re: Where do I get the best wood pellets from?

    I get them at Menard's, which is a home improvement store in the midwest. They only sell them during winter, in the section with wood-burning stoves/fireplaces.

    Water: Re: Tap water help?

    What about "city water"? I'm in northern Illinois and we have Lake Michigan water. Is there any concerns with extra minerals in that water? I also have a pig, Snickers, who sometimes has white...
  9. Cleaning: Re: The best thing I ever did to make cleaning my cage easier is...

    Sure! This is before I added the fleece forest, which now hangs off the bar that the lid rests on (FYI, the lid hinges open for cleaning). It's really simple, not very exciting, but I think that is...
  10. Cleaning: The best thing I ever did to make cleaning my cage easier is...

    I thought it would be fun to start a thread to share your best tip for making an easy-to-clean cage. This occurred to me today when I was cleaning and changing my fleece for the first time since my...

    Diet: Re: Dandelion and Wheatgrass????

    Good to know it's not just me! I will feed them the rest of it before it dies then. I thought it would just keep re-growing when I snipped it. Like the grass in my yard!

    Diet: Re: Dandelion and Wheatgrass????

    I just bought a very similar wheat grass plant for my pigs. 2 pigs love it, 1 likes it ok. I just cut a small bunch off with kitchen scissors. Unfortunately my black thumb seems to be striking...

    How Many: Re: Calling all HERD owners (3+ Piggies)...

    Babies are always so cute!!! I love them all lined up on your arm!

    Maybe once you can determine the gender of the babies, that will help you make a decision. You could just keep any female...

    Bedding: Re: Best Bedding?

    I also prefer fleece with U-Haul underneath in my main area and a kitchen that has wood pellets for litter. I've tried lots of combinations and have found this is the easiest and quickest for me to...

    Loss: Re: sudden death?

    So sorry to hear about your loss Guineahamster65. It's even harder when it's unexpected like this, but sometimes that happens. Sounds like you took great care of them, so remember that he had a...

    Chewing: Re: Carl is chewing EVERYTHING

    You could make a large hay box pretty easily. Below is one I just made for my pigs. You just need a box, a grid, and zip ties (I have a wooden cage, so I used the grid as a way to hang the box on...

    Chewing: Re: Carl is chewing EVERYTHING

    My guinea pigs love to chew empty toilet paper rolls. Maybe that could keep him busy?
