    What to put in a litter tray?

    Safe litter for Guinea pigs?

    Hey everyone! With the quarantine and everything going on, I’m not able to head out to get the litter I normally do for my food area. I found this unscented paper litter for cats on amazon and I was wondering if it’s safe for piggies? There were people safely using it for rabbits in the reviews...

    Can I use this for litter?

    Hello all, I hope you're staying safe and sane in these strange times. I ordered some hay recently and received the wrong order, which means I've just found myself with two large bags of wood based cat litter, and before I pass them on was wondering if it would be ok in the piggy's litter...

    Best Litter Tray Bedding

    Hi all, So, I have a 2x6 c&c cage. Two thirds of it is fleece & I'm very happy with that. In the other third, I currently have carefresh which is in the 'kitchen' area. As much as I love Carefresh & the colours you can get, it's pretty pricey! We're in the process of moving, this means I'm...

    Cage Setup Question

    Hi! I'm new to these forums and am currently looking forward to taking in two young pigs in a couple weeks once they come of age to be separated from their mother.

    Litter Training Advice Needed!

    I've had my 2 new male guinea pigs for 2 weeks now and have been trying to litter train them. They are 8 weeks and 6 weeks old. I have a small kitten litter box in their cage; I use 100% paper bedding as the litter. I feed them around their litter area because I know they tend to poop and pee...
