    Anyone ever use Mirrors?

    Curious, has anyone placed a mirror close to the cage and had positive results?

    My guinea pigs like to see themselves in the bathroom mirror, but I've never tried getting them a mirror and putting it near their cage.

    Wouldn't it be cute to see your piggy playing with its reflection! I've sometimes held them infront of one but they ignore it

    Phoebe sometimes checks herself out in the mirror in my bathroom during floortime. But I've never put a mirror in her cage.

    To my pigs, if it doesn't smell like a guinea pig or mom, ignore it! The contrast with my parakeet's can't-tear-me-away reaction to a mirror is astounding!

    My girls have a small mirror in thier cage it is a mirror designed to go in a bird cage and they often sit there and chat away quite happily to themselves.

    I put a little mirror at top of my cage and they look at it all day and they look like they are posing. It is sooo cute.

    It may entertain her. It won't replace another piggy though.
