    Thanks for the concern. They don't seem to take very big bites at one time anyway. I figure if it was a problem, they wouldn't do it right? It's like us putting our hands on a hot stove, if it hurts, you'll learn. We hope!!

    My guys and bunnies chew on willow baskets all the time. They chew on pine cones too for that matter. I wouldn't see any harm in it.

    Baking Soda and Cavies

    I've read baking soda is bad in case they ingest it. I have heard alot of great things about Odorzout. It can be used as a laundry additive and they sell a pouch you can hang near they cage too.

    Drafts and Pigs

    I've heard bricks work to keep them cool. Also you can get a soda bottle(12 or 20 oz size) fill with water and freeze. That way you can give them something cold to lay with and when it turns to water, refreeze it again. That trick works with bunnies too.

    I've never had a problem. My bunnies, hamsters all chew on them. I've seen my piggies go after a fresh pinecone (a new unchewed one) over carrots. They need to keep their teeth filed down. What better way and it's free!!

    My guys LOVE pinecones. It's a twofer. It gives them something to chew on as well as move it around.

    That is until you get bored with your design and want to change it. HA!HA!HA! How many of us out there have changed our cages more times than we can count. I'm glad to hear it worked out for you in the end.

    It truly depends on how big you want to make your cage. If you are only getting five grids and not five cubes, that is pricey. I get coroplast her for $11 a sheet ( white only). Target will probably be your best bet. I think they have them on sale this week. Either way you go, in the long...

    cage location

    What is truly the best environment to keep guinea pig cages? I mean within the house not outside. What types of temperatures can they withstand? I know they don't like drafts, but does the pigloos or cozies help with that? I was thinking of relocating my cages but wasn't sure what types of...

    Help Me Please

    My guys wouldn't use that type of ramp. I use irrigation tubing and zip tie it to the side of the cage to keep it still. My guys love it. Maybe because it's enclosed? Who knows.

    Piggies and My Allergies

    My problem is mine is contact. Meaning I have mine on the skin. It affects my neck and one of my eye lids. I know it sounds wierd but it is just one eyelid. It comes and goes. I am thinking of an air purifier to see if that helps.

    anyone selling cuddle cups/cozies?

    I sew them and they are easy to make and don't cost a fortune. If anyone is interested, feel free to email me and we can talk details.:cheerful:

    Piggies and My Allergies

    I have bunnies and have used all sorts of hays and grasses. It wasn't until I started to get piggies that I noticed a problem. I do understand what you mean though.

    Piggies and My Allergies

    I just switched to fleece. My guys are not potty trained. What is the easiest way to clean up the poop on a daily basis? How often should I change the fleece to keep the smell down?

    Thanks for the info!! I'm going to try fleece. You did an amazing job on your cage!!

    Piggies and My Allergies

    Are your guys potty trained? I've often wondered about fleece. Do you wash it or throw it away when soiled? How often do you change it? Your cage sounds great! Is it posted here in any of the photo galleries/ If fleece would work out, I'd look into it. Between my 3x5 cage with a 1 x 5...

    I use a combination of aspen and carefresh. I have recently tried Hunt Club bedding.

    Stupid ? regarding ramps

    I must have picky piggies. It doesn't matter what I use as a ramp, they won't use it. I finally switched to irrigation tubing(the big black ribbed tube with holes in it). Once I put that up, my guys went up and down all the time. It works well since you can use the holes to zip tie it to the...

    Piggies and My Allergies

    I have allergies to my piggies too. Mine are contact allergies not sinus. I have used AllerPet-C to wipe my guys down with. It has helped I have also built up a tolerance to them as well. Try that.

    Wire Hay Rack

    I used a bent grid as a hay rack and I had one get his little leg stuck in it. How he did that I'll never know. He broke his leg and I had to keep him confined to a very small portion of the cage to get it to heal. It did and he's all better. I have switched to an old wooden style cd holder...
