    How do you do floortime?

    Betty and Yeti have settled in really well and are doing great at being handled. They seem happy in their cage, doing lots of popcorns and zoomies, but I would love to give them more stimulation by starting floortime. The problem is they are in a huge room and I can just imagine them doing a...

    Skittish Guinea Pig and Floor Time and Lap time!

    Hi! I have two guinea pigs. Patches (older) and Carmal (younger). Patches is taking food from my hand confidently, but Carmal does it a bit more skittishly. I made a post about this but the plan didn’t work out. I was going to connect a pen to their cage to let them come and go as they please...

    First Floor Time Advice!

    Hi! New owner here! So I have had 2 boars for a couple of months now (2-4) and they are getting more confident. The older one is named Patches and the younger one Carmal. I taught Patches how to go to the cage door to get fed vegetables. Carmal is a little less confident, but he is taking...

    Free roaming Piggies?

    Hey there! Recently I have been bringing out my 3 girls for daily floor time. They're in a 5 x 6 CC cage but they still love the extra room of course! Floor time consists of them going into a large metal run added onto their cage, allowing access to the middle of the living room. I was...

    Guinea Pig lying down at floor time

    Hi, new to the piggie parenting. I have had my guinea pig for 5 days now. He is a year and a half old black Abyssinian. The past 4 days I’ve given him food by hand (carrots, salads, pepper, hay) and he comes back to the cage door for more from me and I’ve done floor time. I take the wire part of...

    Senior cavy and floor time

    Hello! I'm feeling a bit stuck with my 5 year old guinea pig penny. Shes in her senior years and in the past year she slowly began to dislike floor time more and more. I used to take her out, set up a bunch of two ended hides in her play pen, and place different veggies all over for her to go and...

    Inside Time

    I’ve had all 3 of my boys in the house because of the cold weather. Today, I’ve set them up in the living room and just sat and watched them.. they’ve had a rough year but today I can happily report I have seen them popcorning and squeaking and running about and eating more hay than I think I’ve...

    2-year-old Rescue Cavy Hates Floor Time

    Hello folks! First-time poster, long-time lurker. :) I adopted Davey, a 2-year-old unaltered Peruvian boar, from my local shelter about 2 months ago. He's settled in reasonably well (he just got a new 2x3 C&C cage) and he has a perfectly clean bill of health from the vet. I want to find a...

    Seperate Cages But Same Floor Time?

    I have four guinea pigs, and they are in pairs in different cages. I started off with the two and adopted one more which didn't get along with the two original ones so I bought a fourth one to keep the adopted one company. I'm wondering if although they are in different cages, could I attempt to...

    Are My Piggies Okay?

    I have two pigs in a 21” x 44” cage. Is this enough room? One piggy is overweight so I know we need a bigger cage so she can exercise. I’ve removed unnecessary clutter from the cage for more room. But I’m not able to get a larger cage until December. Will they be okay until then? Also, I’m only...

    Richard and Kevin got super lucky today! I decided to give them some slices of strawberry. It's one of their favorites but they don't get it too often because of how high in sugar it is (And also because Richard is on a diet, but dont tell him that). :drool:

    Our Little Photo Shoot

    Letting my guys outside for lawn-time is a problem because I'm in Ireland and it rains 360 days of the year here! :td: Generally, our lawn is too wet for the piggies. Lately though, I have begun letting them out on our patio. They get their exercise and can nibble at the lawn bordering the...

    Decorating, Want To Make A Room 100% Piggie-friendly!?

    We are wanting to decorate our piggery-cum-sewing room. I'm interested in hearing people's nice-to-haves and general views. One of the bigger things is that at the minute we have carpet down -- this is going to be replaced, as it's rubbish for floor time, poo gets ground into it and wee isn't...

    Can Guinea Pigs Use Slides? Like Kids Slides

    I saw a miniature toy slide on eBay I think it was for a Barbie doll or something, I was thinking of getting a similar slide a little bit bigger but not as big as a toddlers slide and only about a foot off the ground, with some sort of railing the way around so that the piggies could not climb...

    Jumping Pig

    Hello :luv: Does anyone have experiences with jumping pigs? I took my little one out for his first floor time yesterday and I thought he'll just have a look around but he actually was so happy and ran around, exploring, talking and even popcorning a little. It was the best thing to see :yahoo...

    Boar Seems To Dislike Being Out Of His Enclosure

    I have two adopted and paired boars. One of them, Odo, behaves very nervous when outside of 'home', despite a spread of hideys, veggies everywhere. I even bought a playpen thinking maybe it was because of the amount of open space and to go in stages ... but he's equally unsure of that. I've...
