hi all what do you all tink of homemade diapers for when the piggies are being held or floor time. I was thinking of getting cheap washclothes and cutting to fit and use velcro to hold it together. Kinda like cloth diapers for human babies. What do you all feel or think about that?

Thanks for the input

I know for sure that my pigs would hate having that. Do you think you could get it on them?

I dont think any self-respecting guinea pig would let you do that.

I don't think they would feel comfortable whilst running around. During lap time, I tend to put a towel on my chest or lap to stop any accidents

Assuming you get it on them, and they don't mind it I dont see how there would be room for all their business. I mean seriously, when they poo they poo alot! And when they potty, how is a washcloth supposed to hold all that in? And assuming it does hold all that in...you would have one messy guinea pig bum considering it would just have all this stuff rubbing against it for an hour or so!

I agree, I think it's best to just put them down on some towels.

I had your idea and wanted to test it with some toilet paper, but it was almost impossible to put it on them, and then they just completely soaked it through. I just wear a long shirt I don't care about when handling them.

Haha! Just the other day my mother and I were joking about that since my boys seem to have a thing for just peeing on my mom :p

I doubt they'd like it though. It's funny to imagine pigs waddling with little diapers on. :p

I think it would be funny just to watch someone try to put them on a piggie

It would be cute though but it would be hard for them to walk or run around. they got short legs.

Since when is irritating your guinea pigs funny?! They hate having things put on them - animals aren't supposed to wear any type of clothing and guinea pigs with their tubular bodies and short legs are especially unsuitable for playing dress-ups with.

Stick with the towel on your lap if you're worried about accidents.

No treen, the thought of it is just cute. None of us would probably put a diaper on them!

Actually there definitely are people who would - I've seen many costumed guinea pig photos that testify human amusement definitely wins with some people!

oh, I hate it when people dress up their animals. There is a link that was listed either here or on GL, and its a whole website dedicated to guinea pigs costumes - its just weird, not cute

I would do it for haloween for a bit but if they seemed scared i would take it off imediatly. Some pigs could like it, they are all different. Im not saying its right but i see what they are doing
