    Outside or Inside?

    I’m having a bit of a dilemma at the moment and I’m honestly torn. I have kept all of my Guinea pigs indoors and they’ve all occupied my bedroom- a nice warm room that I frequent so they get human interaction loads and I can cuddle them as much as I want lol. I love having them next to...

    Is this good enough?

    I have 2 female guinea pigs (which have decided to hide under the fleece) and I was wondering if this was a good enough cage for them. I would have a big floor cage but I also have ferrets who run around the room.

    Double indoor cage - yes or no?

    I've bought this cage off Facebook for my two guineas and I'm really not sure about it. It's the Little Friends one. Has anyone got one of these and finds it Ok? I've got visions of one of my babies falling down the hole! The ramp doesn't look securely attached to me either. Not sure if just me...
