Is there an online place to buy igloos and such where you can actually pick the colors? All of the sites i've been to they pick for you.

There is only one good pet store that doesn't sell pets near me. They don't have what I'm looking for.

Try calling to place your order and ask if you could specify a color. Make sure you let them know that if they say you can pick a color and they do not send the right one that they will cover the return cost. Good luck.

Sorry, it actually helps if you read the posts thoroughly, LOL. What I meant to say was to call on-line stores like Critterstore, etc and ask them about ordering specific colors.

I want red or black or grey or white, something along those lines. Clear would work too. All the fleece I use have those colors in it and a green thing just wouldn't work. I know I'm being kinda picky, but its OK I'm a girl.

I wouldn't paint it. Go to the dollar store and find a large salad bowl (they usually carry several colors) and cut a large doorway out of it for the piggers to get in and out. It works just as good as one of those pigloos and they are much cheaper. My girls have a yellow salad bowl as a pigloo and I paid $1 for it.

Even if you spend the money on the actual pigloos, you will still have to widen the doorway for the pigs to get in and out.

Not true, Chatty, both of my pigs(of which one is a full grown boar) can fit easily through the pigloo hidey house entrance.

Well I am repeating what I read on this website. If you go to this page:https://guineapigcages.com/accessories.htm which is the old accesories page, this is what it says:

Pigloos (Cut the Pigloos!)
Cut them out to make them bigger! The pigs like them, but the big pigs can't fit through the little tunnel. They walk around looking like a turtle! Use gardening shears. Run the igloo under hot water to soften up the plastic. Or run them through your dishwasher to heat up the plastic to make it more pliable. Then start hacking away!

So maybe some pigs can fit in them and some can't. I have been told the same about cutting the doors larger over at gl as well.

Yes, but that isn't always the case. Are Dagwell and Atticus big pigs?
