The log tunnel hasn't to go soon due to her infection but when I get a new one I'll out hay in it. Would this be the hay she eats or a different kind? I plan on getting her a corner litter box as she does wee in the corner a lot, but will she then try to sleep in that?!I don't think a fleece bed is a must, she has that log tunnel to lie under. Piggys do like to hide away and not lie in the open. I only use my fleece bedsfor floor time then they have got something to climb into if feeling a bit insecure. And yes they do pee in their fleece beds. Piggys love to lie in piles of hay so you could put some hay in the log tunnel for her. A pile of hay in the corner of the cage, cardboard boxes and paper bags are also a big hit when filled with hay, they pee in those too but then you can just throw them away!
Brilliant, that gives me an idea of what bits to pick up for her next! Thank youComet generally sleeps either out in the open or in one of the carrot cottages, Blitzen sleeps in the cottages, seagrass tunnels and under the log tunnels. I find as long as they have somewhere they can hide under if they want to, they're pretty happy.
Tesco sometimes have paper bags for their veggies, but if you cut the handles off those and stuff them with hay they're a great toy and hidey in one. I have fleece tunnels and cosies for them both but I really only use the cosies, they've had the carrot cottages relatively intact for 8 months now and tbh the seagrass tunnels usually only need replaced because Comet decides to eat them occasionally. They rarely toilet on anything that isn't their hay, bedding, towels...or my sofa lol. They will, however, constantly toilet on fleece, which means constant washing of any fleece stuff they have. I prefer to keep the stuff that doesn't get toileted on.
I can direct you to the shower rooms at my workplace, sure you will find plenty there before the cleaners go on shift!I think piggys are usually happy enough in a big pile of ordinary hair, all my previous pigs have been
Hmm yes think I spotted one there the other day lolI can direct you to the shower rooms at my workplace, sure you will find plenty there before the cleaners go on shift!
I generally find piggies prefer hay over hair though, with possibly the exception of the one living in Trumps wig.
She's peed on me so much since I got her I figure that's a given hahahalol, just reading everything everyone has said - I think we can safely say that piggies will a) sleep where they decide and b) wee anywhere they decide. With the best will in the world, they are highly unlikely to use the place you want them to use for either of these things. That's why we luv them.
