    Re: What where your piggies christmas gifts?

    I made them a "christmas tree". I was planning to get them a small doggy bed but i had to tighten up the budget when one of my pigs needed an Xray and the price of hay went up because the importer somehow stopped importing for a while so the demand increased and so on with the economics of hay.

    I always have trouble uploading pictures in this site, so I'll just link you guys to the picture PandaLoki: Piggy Noche Buena

    Well, the "present" I got for my piggy was a piggybedspread, and he seems really happy with that . One of the other things I did was tie a few bunches of timothy hay to a (chew safe) stick, and then I added little bits of orange, yellow, and red bell pepper as ornaments. The idea was to make a sort of edible christmas tree. I put it in Leo's cage, and he had quite a lot of fun tearing it appart .

    My pigs got their first c&c cage for Christmas! It's a 2x5 with a 2x2 loft. I have no idea how I'm going to top this present next year

    My girls got a new bed. It's a small dog bed. They seem more impressed with the towel I used to cover their sleeping area, though!

    I bought them some new hideys and chew toys. My one pig Calypso, she chews anything and everything she can find, so I found and bought a small animal Kong chew toy xD I'll be giving it to her once I finish their new cage a 5x2 with 2x2 loft. Hopefully she can't destroy that...
    We went through two rolls of paper towels christmas day so i tossed the rolls in the cage, so that was fun for the two of them.

    My pigs got a "Teach N Treat" toy and a salad spinner for their lettuce. Haven't tried the salad spinner but one of the boys is starting to figure out the Teach n Treat toy. He's such a little smarty pants :-)

    I get my boys a red pepper and cut off the top. Then I stuff it with cilantro, green beans, carrot, red leaf lettuce, grapes, banana, etc and etc! Basically I stuff a whole ton of veggies and fruit in it and just let them go wild! We also re-did their cage and added a new loft with new, soft fleece.
