    Smile Do your pigs eat the news! lol

    My guinea pigs seem to eat the newspaper (news). I was wondering if it was doing them harm. I have also noticed what an awful mess it makes! Even if i tuck it in, they always move the towels and eat the newspaper. Is there a way to stop them from eating it?

    Thank you.

    In small amounts, eatting newspaper is okay. Most inks today are not toxic. My piggies eat newspaper too. For some reason, they love to shred and eat it. Something to try: I buy lunch size paper bags, and give them one of them. I usually cut the bottom end off, and sometimes I stuff it with hay. When I left the other day, my Snowy was laying mostly in the bag eatting. They can run through the bag like a tunnel, and also chew it.

    Make sure they have plenty of things to chew on. Mine like timothy hay cubes. Some pigs like flavored chew things or wooden blocks to chew.

    My piggies' favorite toy is a the "giant size" lunch paper bag with the bottom cut or ripped off, filled with hay. The love to burrow and eat it...although sometimes it's tricky to get them out if I don't have food to entice them!

    My Kofi's fave game is newspaper shredding. I think they should be fine. Piggies seem to know what is ok for them. x
