    Question bedding for longer-haired piggies?

    If everything works out with the shelter, I will be acquiring 2 longer-haired piggies (hair looks maybe 3-4 inches long and they are between 1 and 2 years old.) Do aspen shavings get stuck in their fur like in my long-haired hamster? If so, what works best for this type of gp?

    I dont have anyproblems using aspen bedding at all and I have one long haired one and will be getting 2 more soon. I use one section for bedding and the other in fleece.

    Bedding is fine (I use it and have two long-haired peruvians). You might just need to trim up the bum occasionally if the hair gets too long and shavings start getting caught up in it. Otherwise there should be no problems.

    My daughter came over last night and saw my piggie and asked if I gave her another one of my famous haircuts. The poor piggie, what I do to her with the scissors. I will never be a hairdresser.
