    New piggie palace!

    In my ongoing quest to make sure the boys stay together we have upcycled a toddler bed to give them lots of room. Also, I'm a children's book illustrator and, as I wanted the piggies in the centre of our home, I felt it needed to be pretty too! Not a main concern for the piggies, but nice for...

    Cage Size Advice

    Hi all, My boyfriend and I are DIYing a new cage for our babies. Originally it was going to be super long so our two boys had loads of run space, but as many of you will know I posted about having to separate our boys. They're now booked in to be neutered in two weeks' time and the new aim is...

    Ready For Their Holibobs!

    The girls are settling in quite nicely to their indoor cage ready to stay at my sisters on a little holiday while we go on holiday! We don't go until Sunday but I thought it would be a good idea to let them have a few days in their cage to get used to it. Tomorrow I'm off out shopping and I'm...

    Stressed! House-buying And Survey Is Very Bad!

    So we're buying a house for the first time ever. The piggies are getting their own bedroom. This has been months in the making now, with so much paperwork and the estate agents and solicitors taking ages... But today we got the buildings survey/report back. Now, it's an older property and...

    Double Hutch Idea!

    Hi! So I'm pretty sure the standard hutch for most people housing their Guinea pigs outside is the classic 2 storey wooden hutch (probably from pets at home) Basically I have had 7 pigs in my life and out of all of them only 1 has ever learnt to use the stairs in the hutch which essentially...

    1st Gotcha Day And Home Improvements

    One year ago today I brought my three sisters home after an 8 year (or so) break from piggy keeping. They are currently inside as their shed still won't stay warm enough and we're constantly trying to make improvements. If the latest batch of attempts don't work OH said they can live inside...

    I Want To Foster Small Furries...

    I'm in the process of trying to foster some small animals, I would take any rodents really and have experience with guinea pigs, rats, mice, dwarf hamsters, syrian hamsters and rabbits. I live in warrington and I saw an ad for the RSPCA not the closest one but second closest to me in altrincham...

    Where Are The Pretty Cages?

    Ok, my fellow cavy enthusiasts! I'm really getting tired of how ugly my guinea pigs' cage is, especially when I'm trying to decorate my new apartment. Nothing says aesthetically appealing like an ugly wire cage with hay and piggie poop flying everywhere. After scouring the internet for some kind...

    Should I Get Her A New Cage?

    My Guinea pig is around 4-5 years old, I don't remember exactly when we got her but she is a little old. Her sister recently passed away from an unknown health problem, so I've been keeping my remaining piggie busy. Getting a new pig is out of the question, I just can't afford it. Plus, when my...

    Three Beautiful Girls

    Brought these three little piglets home this afternoon. Wasn't really planning on such little ones - they're only about 4 or 5 months old. They are currently in their temporary indoor pen as it's supposed to be particularly cold tonight and then they'll hopefully move to the piggie shed...
