So I really want a little hammock corner snaggy kind of thing and all the ones that I have been able to find in stores near me are the ferret ones. They're nice, but I really think they're over priced... Anyways, today I scrounged up one of the dogs' old bandanas and a never opened facecloth and... Ta Da! I have got to be the cheapest person ever ;) I refer to it as being frugal but.... ! Anyways, Vixen likes it. Gigantica is Peed off that she can't get into it. She tried to place her rather massive booty into it, decided it wasn't worth her trouble, pooped on it and walked over to the corner to consume everything in sight... no change there ;)

Ps... Sorry about the poops! I hadn't done their poop pick up before the photos lol


Gigantica turning up her nose at the new addition


Spike wondering where their hammock is...


I ran out of pellets for them last night so they had to make do with hay... apparently it was awful as Oreo has decided never to let that dish go again :)


I woke them up for pics ;)


Tica being clever and hiding behind her unicorn


Vixen is starting to look like a big piggy

I like all those beautiful pictures and the funny comments! And I love the hammock, I have been wanting one for my piggies but like you said very expensive. I may have to copy you :-) :-)

I'll have to make one for Gigantica and Spike and Oreo on the second level now. Might have to use a blanket as a hammock for Gigantica's sizeable behind... and ego ;)

Out of interest how big is your cage?
It's a two level 2x4 c&c cage... It's not the greatest picture but... I could get better measurements too if you like! I think the grids are just over 1 foot each so I believe it was about 4.5 feet long and 2.5 feet wide. I think about 4.5 feet tall?

I've just this minute do this. If I've got a spare grid connect it to your cage and throw a fleeze over it. My pigs are now running in and out of them trying to work off which one they like best20150109_223628-1.jpg
