I just thought I would share this as I’ve really been struggling to find something suitable for my outdoor piggies to have floor time.

I got them on amazon and a lot cheaper than an indoor run. My poor piggies haven’t had any floor time for at least a week and they very happy popcorning around 😍E14A70E8-A499-44A4-856E-01784551ECB8.jpeg1DBCD34C-5882-46A8-88B2-74D1D52900AE.jpeg

It’s great. I have c&c grids cable tied together (except the last one, so they fold for storage) which I can pop back up in a matter of minutes to use as an indoor run but I only use it during the summer months. Do be very very careful bringing outdoor piggies indoors at this time of year though. The temperature change from outside into the house and then back out again can be detrimental to their health. I personally don’t bring my outdoor piggies inside after the end of October for those reasons.

I didn’t think about doing that! I’ve got loads of unused c&c grids :doh: I was worried about the temperature so I’ve left the door open to try and keep it the same

I used spare C&C grids roe floor time pens as well, now I mostly just use the grids to block off electrical wires and give the piggies the whole living room and kitchen floors to run about on anyway!

I have a bunny run off Amazon and I use and old mattress protector on the floor. I only have them in for max half an hour when the temperature outside is above 10-12 degrees and the heating in the house is off. The bunny run sets up in less than a minute and folds down small so I can pack it away.
