The power has been out at my house for almost an hour, and its not expected to come back on anytime soon(they said 6-11 it should be back) how do I keep my pigs warm if it gets to cold!?

GP's can deal with cold much better than heat, so use a blanket to partially cover their cage and let them burrow into loose fleece if you have some. As long as your house stays around 60 Farenheit or so you don't have to worry much.

Do you have hot water bottle? If you can get hot water to fill it, do so and lay in the cage, adding a blanket to cover the cage will keep the heat in. Do you have a digital thermometer? Put one near the cage so you know the temp. Our house has different temps in each room so I have a bunch of $5.00 digital thermo's around the house.

Power came back on shortly after I posted this but I'll keep these in mind for the future
