    Is this piggy castle safe?

    I'm thinking about getting this for my boys, but wasn't sure if the wood was safe, since it will be inevitably chewed lol :P. If not does anyone have anything similar? Guinea Pig/Small Animal Shelter House Castle Hideout

    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.

    2 guinea pigs with separate homes next to each other?

    Hi, I have two guinea pigs who used to live together (but had a falling out, probably because their cage wasn't big enough). I've attempted to rebond them again maybe twice but they always end up fighting aggressively which scares me so I've just kept them separate living in their own big cages...

    Anyone else experienced this?

    So since Honey passed, Willow has been side By side neighbours with Lois and Laine. Initially this helped Willow realise she wasn't alone, and picked her appetitive straight back up. After about 2 days of being next to them, Willow started chewing at the bars and chewing the coroplast base on...

    I have a 2 story hutch for my 2 pigs but only one will use the ramp? Both will go up it but only one down again. We have already adapted it to a more tunnel shape to try and help, temped her with food and her sister being at the bottom. We have literally tried everything but she is still...

    Bonded?

    Since roughly around yesterday 10am, I have been bonding my Harvey (aprox a year) with a new baby pig (aprox 1 month) Milton, I didn’t read up enough and thought washing Harvey’s blankets and wiping down a bit would be enough to put Milton in his cage, stupid now that I know. They were NOT...
