    help with fleece lifting pigaloos

    ok i have a pigaloo who likes to somehow burrow underneath the layer of fleece and she gets under it and makes a huge mess out of the cage and gets poo all over her! i dont know why she keeps doing this. i gave her a fleece chunk as a blanket in her fav house thinking maybe that would help but no she still does it. i have clipped the ever loving ninny out of the fleece, even tried getting a bigger piece and slipping it all the way around n under the coroplast. and still every time i got in there shes back under the fleece, and i have to give her a bath which she HATES. oh and anyone have tips on bathing where she isnt so traumatized? shes so shy and acts terrified whenever shes out of the cage. i just don't get it her sister never does it. i'm just at a loss

    Your fleece needs to be big enough to go across the whole bottom of the cage, and then up and over all sides of the coroplast lip. Then use binder spines to clip the fleece to the top of the coroplast in several places on each side, then she can't get under it.

    Other options would be to make or invest in a guinea pig bedspread:
    BUY THEM: http://www.piggybedspreads.com
    SEW THEM: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aJJb4PNN6U#t=13

    Or Fleece flippers:
    BUY THEM:

    Or sew them yourself in any size you like. Full cage, 1/2 cage, 1/3 cage or 1x2's.

    As for baths what I do is fill up my bathroom sink a few inches with warm water and put a washcloth in. keep a cup and a towel near by. Wash carefully but quickly. Then drain the water and rinse the pig off using the cup to pour fresh water. Then dry them off in the sink. I actually dry my pigs with my blowdryer but not everyone likes to do that.

    I put bricks in every corner of the cage. Check out this article: http://www.calicavycollective.com/20...wing.html#more
