    Talking Just Saying Hello

    Hi!!
    Figured that I would introduce myself
    My name is Samantha, please call me Sam
    I have a single, timid male guinea pig named Ginger, but I have a bad relationship with my dad and he lives at my dad's house. At the very least I am planning to make him more comfortable as the tiny cage from PetSmart is NOT a good fit, plus it is incredibly hard to clean.
    I am looking for a lot of advice, I need to figure out how to take care of him, so I guess I'll start a very general list of stuff that I will be asking about starting today:
    1) Diet (Keeping Costs Down)
    2) Cage (Safety)
    3) Allergies (I want to have him at my Mom's house)
    I look forward to talking with everyone and would adore it if I could get some help.
    Oh, also, I really want to help out with other guinea pig stuff (awareness and such) but I have a very limited budget. Some advice on starting a cage/accessories business would also be greatly appreciated
    Oh, and if you live in Colorado and are looking to order grids, connectors, and cable ties, please let me know so we both can save on shipping using Store Supply Warehouse.
    Anyways, that's all for now

    Welcome to this fantastic forum! Ginger is very handsome.

    1) Order hay online in bulk from Small Pet Select, KMS Hayloft, Oxbow, or other brands. As an even more inexpensive option, buy whole bales of hay locally. The only downfall to buying bales is storage, and they're typically not as high quality hay. If you can find nice bales locally, you can save a ton of money.

    2) Build a C&C cage. You can find directions in this website. I'm not sure what you mean by safety, do you have other pets? If you have other pets you can use wire closet shelving as a sturdy lid.

    3) Is your mom allergic to guinea pigs? Or is she allergic to hay? If she's allergic to timothy hay, try orchard grass or bluegrass. If she's allergic to the pigs themselves, some other people might be able to offer advice on dealing with that.
