    Is It A Dog Or Mo?

    Does anyone else's guinea pig roll over?! Mo does :lol!: if I stroke him near his belly he rolls over like a dog- must be ticklish! And (as you'll see in the video) when he gets a bit over excited... (This video was taken ages ago Mo was a baby) here I decided to get 'crafty' and make a...

    Diy To Help Her Settle In

    So we've had Rosie for just under two weeks now and I'm doing everything I can to make her life happy and healthy!

    Fleece Liners And Baxter Pads?

    So I have been looking at making my own fleece liners for my boys as buying them is SO expensive! I have heard pros and cons to the Uhaul furniture pad route, something about them disintegrating in the wash. So I thought maybe Baxter pads for human incontinence might work? They are big absorbent...

    Diy Cage? Please Help!

    Hi everyone! I want to build a DIY cage for my piggies ASAP, however I only have a £50 budget as I am fifteen and I don't have a job or anything.

    Diy Emergency

    Hi all, I had to buy a hutch in the end, and when it arrived it was definitely too small. I'm supposed to be rehoming 2 boys today, and it's just not big enough for them. I can build on to it, as one of the sides is mesh; I was hoping to create a small room with a slope so they can walk...

    What's In Your Liners?

    Hello all! So, I haven't been a piggy slave for more than a month, but I'm already getting ready to try switching over to fleece bedding.
