    Reddish pinkish pee?

    So I took my pigs out, they played, normal stuff; but when I went to go pick them up I found this on the floor. I’m pretty sure that it’s pee because no one goes on the playpen with food. I don’t know who’s pee it is, but should we take them to the vet?

    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
