    What should you get your pig for Christmas (Or other holidays)?

    As you all may know, today is the first day of December. Holidays season is upon us. I assume many of you celebrate these holiday traditions with your pigs, as I do, and you may be wondering what to give your pig during these special times. I came up with a couple ideas to get you started


    FOR CHRISTMAS

    "Piggy advent calendar" This is the typical advent calendar, but instead of chocolate inside, you will put pea flakes inside! You can get advent calanders at your local dollar store. You open all the flaps, (Eat or throw away the chocolate as you choose) and put one flake in each flap, and close it. This is a fun and safe way to celebrate Christmas with your pigs


    I had a few ideas for other holidays, but I am still working out kinks


    So what to get your pig??

    For Christmas for our pigs, we are expanding their cage a little bit. It can be as simple as that. You could also buy them some new hides, or maybe get them some new chew toys (like these)

    If you have a pig that likes tunnels try this https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcos...tunnel-striped

    If your looking at getting your pigs buff, try these: https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcos...imal-dumbbells (They are wood chews)

    If you want to teach your pig how to draw: https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcos...cil-wood-chews

    It’s fun shopping for guinea pigs. One thing I will say is make sure the crinkle tunnel is washable because they will sit inside and use it for a toilet. For an easy tunnel I take one of the wire cage grids and bend it to about 90 degrees. Then cover it with a stretchy book cover, or make a fabric cover with flaps like a book cover, and set that up. With no floor there is no mess and the cover can be taken off and put in the laundry.

    Very cute pig! What's their name? And I looked again, and I do not see anything saying it is washable.

    This little pampered pig is Lacey. I adopted her 3 years ago and she turned 4 this summer.

    Another option for a tunnel is one I posted before - the stack and nest plastic bins at Dollar Tree. They have several colors and when you flip them over they make great tunnels. Lacey likes to drag hers around and rearrange her cage.

    Haha, The way I arrange things in their cage is NEVER good enough for them.

    Well, now Iím thinking of the other accessories that I could recommend. I have this kitty treat ball that I put pellets in and she rolls it around until all the pellets are out.

    I also have a snuffle mat that can be made with fleece. Here is a link to a post under the Homemade Toys thread.

    There are several sites with Guinea Pig themed shirts. I myself have two Christmas themed piggie shirts !

    Merry Pigmas I got two years ago. The other one I absolutely had to have. I saw that shirt about a month after I lost my baby Punkin. The pig on the shirt could be his twin.
