I am wondering whether I can stop using my heat pads at night now the nights are getting warmer?
I hate to think of my piggies cold outside.Their cage has a cover and pigloos filled with straw and peices of fleece blanket.

Hi, :wel: to the forum.
I’m in the south of England and I stopped using extra blankets etc a few weeks ago. We not had any cold nights for a while, so they should be fine without a heat pad.
Try to avoid using straw, it can get dangerous for their eyes. You can use hay in the bedding areas :nod:
Would love to see pictures of your piggies.
