Okay so I'm assuming he's trying to get somewhere that he can cuddle up into, but Cletus seems to like shirts.... Especially when being held. He's so quick and wiggles so much, I have a hard time holding him (I'm currently working to get them handle-able) So should I use the towel trick, or do you think he'll tryen wiggles out of my arms. I've tried it, but I'm always afraid he'll skitter out of it before I can catch him. And believe me he's so quick! lol
 
Kwee has a particular fascination with button-down shirts. lol
 
Mine like my robe.. Lol
 
LOL at least I am not the only one with a piggie who likes to make me undress to tryen get him out! thanks!
 
Mine like dresses and basketball shorts -___- they like to lay on the fabric underneath my leg. lol
 
You can buy or make guinea pig sacks to hold him in. They love snuggling in them and it's easier to handle them when they're in them.
 
Amy loves to snuggle up against my bosom. It's the bosom, not the chest, as she's not nearly as happy snuggling with my husband. She also likes to barber my hair if I don't remember to toss it over my back when I'm holding Tank Girl.

I agree with this. You are referring to Cuddle Cups, right?

Not quite... A cuddle cup looks something like this:

And I think @pinky is referring to something more like this:

Someone at our rescue makes the sacks which we also call "sleeping bags." They're similar to the blue one with white polka dots and are really easy to make. We use them at our adoption events when someone wants to hold a guinea pig. The pigs feel more secure and they don't try and escape once they're inside.
 
Hmm that might just work! Thanks guys! I'll see if I can find one near me, or a pattern to make one, then give it to my co-worker to make! (I am not above bribery...)
