    General: Re: Vet Trip Tomorrow

    If it doesn’t fit on the floor in the front, set it on the back seat. Wrap a couple of bungee cords or ropes around it top to bottom. Slip the seatbelt under the cords and clip it together.

    Fleece: Re: How often to wash fleece?

    I have a female in a 2x3 cage with washable incontinence bed pads covered by fleece. In the corners I have small fleece pads. I have a hay pan that is actually a large rabbit-size litter pan with...
  4. Re: Unplanned adoption, seeking input on my check list

    Thanks for the good tips to nail trimming! I do it myself also. We kind of fumble some days if she’s more wiggly. The burrito wrap is a good idea.

    I have used the kitten scissors but I have...
  5. Re: Unplanned adoption, seeking input on my check list

    So happy to read your updates! It’s a good sign that he’s inquisitive and interested in his surroundings. Just think of all the spoiling you have ahead of you!
  6. Re: Unplanned adoption, seeking input on my check list

    I wouldn’t worry about the cage size right now since you have a plan to take care of that soon.

    He has a clean environment, food and water, and a safe place, so his quality of life has already...
  7. Re: Unplanned adoption, seeking input on my check list

    It’s so good of you to take this adorable little guy in. Has anyone explained to him that he basically won the lottery when he wound up with your family? ��

    Fleece: Re: which would be better?

    If this mattress protector is waterproof you will need an absorbent layer next to the fleece. Otherwise the fleece will be damp. I use washable incontinence pads under the fleece and they wash and...

    Pellets: Re: Guinea Pig Won't Eat Pellets

    That’s what I would do. I give mine 2 tablespoons of pellets each day and sometimes she eats them all, other times some are left. I do put some of them in a treat toy that she rolls around and the...

    Re: bedding

    I don’t think they actually eat it, but sometimes they taste things to see what they are. For awhile I used shredded paper with the Carefresh, and I did see mine eat a shredded piece but nothing more...

    Diet: Re: Just double checking

    I think you could feed green peppers that were frozen. Most veggies like green beans, peas, carrots, etc., must be blanched in order to freeze and properly preserve them. So they are cooked in...

    Pellets: Re: Guinea Pig Won't Eat Pellets

    The nice thing about pellets is the balanced nutrition and vitamin C. However, pellets are not as important as having grass hay such as Timothy available 24/7 and about a cup of fresh veggies which...

    Re: bedding

    If it were my choice I would try the Wilko paper bedding in the first link above. It looks a lot like the Carefresh which is soft on their feet and very absorbent. I have had some of the recycled...

    Behavior: Re: Taming guinea pigs and out of cage time?

    Feeding by hand is a good start. They are very food motivated. Most never like being picked up, but will learn to tolerate it for a food treat. They are prey animals so they hide and try not to get...

  20. Bullying: Re: Is it okay to separate my guinea pigs with cage divider?

    The new cage should help since it’s a nice size. And as bpatters said, hideys should have two or more doors so no one gets trapped. There should also be a few places with food or maybe scattered food...
  21. Bullying: Re: Is it okay to separate my guinea pigs with cage divider?

    For three males you will need at least a 12 square foot cage and maybe more. Males are naturally competitive and when they hit puberty they will establish their space and tensions grow. Most of the...

    Bedding: Re: Kitchen bedding help

    I use a long rabbit litter pan for hay. I call it her eat-in bathroom. ;)

    I put Carefresh in the bottom and then a light layer of hay, and pile the rest of the fresh hay in the corner. She pulls...
  23. General: Re: Looking for alternative chews and treats! And some advice on squeaks.

    As others have said, Timothy or other grass hay 24/7 is a must. Some pigs, like mine, aren’t chewers. She will chew on fresh apple sticks that I cut from our apple tree, but that’s about all. Avoid...
