    To rearrange the cage or keep it the same...

    I was wondering if my at of you rearrange your cage frequently or do youay it out the same way each time you clean it? I don't know if piggies like a consistent home (same toys and hideys in the same places) or should I mix up the toys and hideys and rotate the locations.

    I rearrange at least some of it every week when I change out the fleece. Some times it's just the hay and tunnel, sometimes I switch between fleece draped over one end and a fleece forest. They always explore and popcorn around when I change it out.

    If I put something in a different spot they "nose" it back to where they think it should be. They are extra particular about the bedroom. The cozies need to be away from the wall and facing out.

    Mine too, no matter where I put the pigloos and food dishes they'll always be somewhere else by the end of the day. One of mine likes to drag a pigloo over the dish so she can have a meal in the privacy of her home. :P

    Love it!! I know exactly what you mean, they re-arrange on a daily basis. These two are the only one's who re-arrange their furniture more than my sister and that's saying a lot!

    What do you mean by a fleece forest?

    You can even make a DIY fleece forest for your own guinea pigs, they are quite easy to make.

    Re: To rearrange the cage or keep it the same...

    My two are showing signs of wanting to rearrange their surroundings. I'm sure once I get them in a bigger cage, they will do just that. At least Sweet Pea will, she likes to turn the straw tunnel over on it's side and then inspect it and then flip it back over. She's a trip to watch. She also loves to move the hay sack out and lay under it/hide behind the hay. Thankfully it's attached to the cage. She is definitely going to require a fleece forest with the larger cage. I can't wait to get started on that cage!!!

    Thank you! I love the idea of a fleece forest. Any idea what it might replicate in the wild?
