    LOL LOL Actually I knew that that was a pot holder, but in my mind I automatically link "pot" to "coffee" LOL Anyway, why not trying a coffee pot as a house ? LOL Talking about coffee...needless to say that "Italians do it better" that as well LOL Paolo

    Mine is a do-it-yourself hammock using a coffee pot. I spent less than 5 Euros (4 $) and 10 minutes to make it. A picture of it is in my photo gallery: https://www.guineapigcages.com/photos/showphoto.php?photo=467&password=&sort=1&cat=512&page=1 Paolo

    Litter Training

    I noticed that the more bedding I put the more they use it. So in one area of the cage there is a thick layer of bedding while in the other parts is much thinner. I did not succeeded completely, but in this way they are more customed to use one part of the cage for littering. Paolo

    Vitamin C?! Help!

    Vitamin C?! Help!

    Re: Vitamin C?! Help! If you give 20g (about 1 oz.) of red pepper a day per GP they get enough vitamin C. I don't use tablet or drops and they are in great shape. My two girls love red pepper. Try to give it when they are more hungry, some orange can help as well.

    What's your Pet's favorite treat?

    Re: treats I read that it is better not to exceed with carrots, about a inch a day is enough. They contain vitamin A and other stuff that can cause liver problems, is it correct ? Anyway, my two girls go crazy for fresh grass, good hay and red pepper.
