    Nighttime cage necessary?

    Hi all, we’re new to Guinea Pig ownership and having put our girls in an outdoor hutch we have decided to move them back indoors permanently. I have ordered a C&C open top cage but wondered about nighttime, should I put them in a closable cage then? Will their food attract mice into the house? I...

    Hey everyone! With the quarantine and everything going on, I’m not able to head out to get the litter I normally do for my food area.

    DIY cage idea - is it suitable?

    I am thinking about making a DIY cage, since pet store cages are way too small, but my space is limited and I want to fit it into a certain corner.

    Are my pigs unhappy?

    I have three girls in an 18 square foot cage. All their needs are accommodated for; food, comfy houses, open space. I don’t have many toys, but I don’t think chew toys would really solve my issue. They don’t ever get the zoomies anymore, nor do they often popcorn. I think they do on occasion...

    New Cage For Piggies :)

    Okay so I think I found a cage that will work but I don’t trust myself so can the pig experts here tell me if this cage looks okay for two guinea pigs (who get along not as well I hoped they would yet sometimes manage)? It looks divided to me but can someone make sure? ;-; Thank you! <3

    Tree Sap Resin Coming From Inside my Guinea Pigs' Newly Built Wooden Cage?

    Hello, Me and my fiance recently built a homemade wooden cage for our little spuds but since the cage is made out of raw wood, it would seem to be leaking resin in one specific spot in the cage. This is a concern because I had found multiple locks of fur in the resin recently after cleaning the...
