  2. Chat Re: Be honest...do you eat as well as your pigs?

    I have a lot more salads and make more veggie soup from scratch since I have all this produce around the house. And when Lacey gets veggies, the dog wants his cut so he gets a piece of carrot or cuke.

    General: Re: Guinea pigs and ferrets?

    I would definitely have a really secure and safe cage for the guinea pig and the ferret. While domestic ferrets usually eat chow, they are descendants of wild ferrets that hunt rodents and mammals as...

    Muffs and tunnels are on my to-do list. I love sewing and have plenty of fabric and batting. My pig is just kind of lukewarm about the Cuddle Cup so I’m not going to bother with another one. She...

    Re: She’s here!

    For a bed, I use a Cuddle Cup in a corner of the cage and use binder clips and a square of fleece to make an awning clipped to the cage. The two are separate, but when she's in the Cuddle Cup she has...

    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    I hope Scooter continues to do well and gets rid of that ear issue. It sounds like that will resolve his teeth issues as well.

    Play: Re: Where To Get A Playpen?

    It looks like a foot spur - a tough piece of skin like a callus attached on just one side like a hangnail. The skin itself looks like a healthy pink color with no swelling or injured spots.

    I don’t have any problem with the fleece and absorbent layers slipping. My setup is a little different since I have the cage sitting inside a frame-like base. The base is plywood with 2x2s around the...

  23. Fleece: Re: What should I use for cleaning fleece bedding?

    Layering without sewing should work fine. I use washable incontinence pads topped with a layer of fleece in my cage. I think the layers wash and dry better when they aren’t sewn together.
