    Re: I am building an outdoor guinea pig hutch.

    Ok, I apologize. I forgot that this is not the place to give a geography/climatology lesson. The focus is guinea pigs and their housing. I fully agree that guinea pigs should be kept indoors (and...

    Re: I am building an outdoor guinea pig hutch.

    Re: I am building an outdoor guinea pig hutch.

    Did you read to the end of the post where I agreed with others that if it's so nice and warm outside that the human should live out there instead of the pigs? I never said it was warm enough for...

    Medications: Re: SMZ Fluid.

    Does it have an expiry date? Those are usually a good indication if it's still ok to use.

    Also, is it an antibiotic? (Sorry, don't know my drugs!) If it is, why did you not finish what you...

    Re: I am building an outdoor guinea pig hutch.

    Um... generalizing about the climate in Canada is not usually a good idea. I'm not justifying keeping guinea pigs outside, just saying it may not be as cold as you think, you really don't know. It...

    To a certain extent, I have to agree with you, RichJess. My family has 2 cats currently, both of which are exclusively indoor cats. We made that decision based on those statistics that indoor cats...

    Re: Found 2 Baby Fish in Plants!

    When you exhale, there's more CO2 than when you inhaled, but you also exhale a lot of the oxygen you breathed in. You could live on someone's exhaled air, there's enough oxygen left in it....

    Possibly Pregnant: Re: There's a flesh in her hidey? What could it be?

    Size: Re: 3x5

    Sorry, but why can't you leave it as is? Dividing a 4x5 down the middle should give 2 2x5's, shouldn't it? If you need to change, I agree with the previous poster to go 2x4 and 3x4.
