How big is the current cage? If its smaller than a 2x3 c&c cage, then please leave it. I have an insanely loud water bottle as well. However, once I'm asleep (they are in my room) I don't notice it. 2 weeks ago I couldn't sleep because of all the noise they made. I put them in another room at night. Like you said, it was so much hassle for me. I put them back in my room for the nights, and now I can sleep like a log. I don't even notice them chewing or eating. I suggest build the c&c cage, put it in your room and in a few days you won't even notice they're there.

You could try a water bowl for at night. It would have to be a heavy ceramic bowl, so the piggie can't knock it over. my rabbit loves drinking out of his bowl. You could "test" it for a few nights and see how it goes. Or you could keep his cage in the living room and use it as a night cage.

Aw, sorry about that. Then why not try the water bowl. See if she poops or makes a mess. If not, then make it permanant for the night. I think all water bottles are loud.

Maybe you shouldn't keep her in your room, then. Just keep her somewhere else, and sleep! =)

im confused, is the water bottle loud because she pounds on it? if thats the reason, get a water bottle that fastens to the outside of the cage. thats what i have.

If she keeps her somewhere else, then she won't be able to build a c&c cage

I use that type of water bottle that is clear/blue with the floating duck in it. To me it is very quiet.

CC likes to chug on his water bottle and make a lot of noise. Smore doesn't make a sound when he drinks. They are so oppisites.

Try a flat back water bottle like this (broken link removed) it fastens securely but is easily removed. I have one myself with my piggie in my room and you can sleep peacefully.
