Ok so most of you know that I am writing a care guide, and I need some help. I can't remember if I have everything I need to write, on the care guide yet.

Ok so these are the topics i have done so far
Origin- how long they live, where they came from
Housing- C&C cages, why, how etc. Friend/ cage mates
Cage Location- where in the house etc, temp.
Toys, accessories, priorities- toys accessories, and priorities for the cage
Food-The best foods, ingrediants to avoid, etc
Hay- what to give, where to get etc
Veggies (fruits also)- ok veggies, when an what to give, portions etc
Pet store treats- don't give
Teeth- how to keep them at the right lenght, never have them clipped etc
General Health- These sections are included in general health- Vets,Parasites, feet and nails, eyes, weight

Some other topics I am going to but am not finnished with them-

Floor time
Bedding

Any other topics I should include? It is just so hard to remember them all...

Ok I think I will do that after the adopting topic.
So
Adopting
Then
Bringing you guinea pig home
Then if you already have another one
Quarentining.

Any info on floor time?- So far I was thinking at least a minimum of a 2x6 grid space (must be bigger than the actual cage). But how about Where? When? (If you could answer my where and when questions it would be awesome.) And also how long?

Maybe spaying and neutering, info about pet stores (the ugly truth), where to shop other than those stores, min and max cage sizes, links to go to for refernce (see (broken link removed)), cleaning the cage. That's all I can think of for now. =)

Ok well I have the min and max cage sizes for two guinea pigs. But I didn't go higher than that, I just gave the link to cavycages which will tell them how large it needs to be for more than two piggs.

Ok, before Adopting will put a sections on petstores in the petstores section I will put the ugly truth, and where to shop other than petstores.

And after the bedding section I will add cleaning the cage.


I already have a paragraph on nuetering and spaying in the Accessories, priorities, and toys topic, but it isnt very explainitory but it has a link as to where they can go to for more info.

Ok maybe during the topic where to shop other than petstores I can put different addresses of ok places to shop!

You were both very helpful thank you!

Oh do you think it would be alright if I copied the part on that link you gave me mncavylover where it says "Choosing as area for floor time?" I would only copy the part that says the pros and cons of different places used for floor time.

Or else you could just email Teresa and ask her if it's ok for you to use.
