Could you guys answer a question for me..... You all seem to know a lot. Is it the size of the play area for floor time, or the interaction with their owners somewhere other than their cage that is so imperative to their floor time. You know, like interaction with the family or a change of their surrondings so as not to get bored. My guniea pigs floor time is not all that large so i wanted to be sure that was sufficent. Thanks :)

Both are important. Interaction with humans is more lap time though rather than floor time. Having floor time is important because it provides a change of surroundings as well as having somewhere other than their cage to exercise in.

My piggies play pen is 4 grids by 4 grids, which seems to do the job nicely. It is easy to set up we use a shower curtain topped by a fleece blanket topped with a few hidey houses, a cat type litter box filled with hay, toys, etc.

Interaction with humans is not that important - a larger sized play pen is.
