    The hot weather

    Hey, I have 3 long haired guinea pigs and they really do hate the hot weather. They are fine in the garden as long as it’s 24degrees or below. Anything more like it has been over the weekend and they become very uncomfortable. Upon coming home today my other half found a very uncomfortable pig...

    Outdoor Run Recommendations

    Seeing as the nice weather is drawing closer, I've started looking at outdoor runs for my piggies. Do you have any recommendations? Ideally it would fold down so it can be stored away, but I obviously don't want it to be flimsy. Thank you!

    Summer Accommodation

    The temperatures at the beginning of this week mean that my shed will be getting too hot during the day for the pigs, so they've moved into the spare room and don't seem to mind, so far, the lack of space compared to the shed! We will try to still give them floor time, but whether it is in that...

    Outdoor Thermometer

    With nicer weather, hopefully, on the way, I am thinking about my shed and the sun. I have already sourced shade cloth to fix over the windows to block direct sunlight (my shed is in sun for a few hours in the daytime) but I am looking for an accurate and reliable digital thermometer which I can...
