Hi everyone
I have had my two piggies nearly two weeks now and I am super excited to get my new indoor c&c cage and make fleece liners. Anyway I have a colleague who just thinks this is odd, she says they should be outdoors and thought that when I said I hadn’t put them outside in their run first thing as it was cold she said they are meant to be outdoor animals. Why can’t I have them indoors at night and when it’s cold, not only can I interact with them more they are safe too

Mine are indoors all the time and just go out to munch on some grass when it’s nice outside and they are supervised the whole time. I have a c & c cage and make fleece liners as well. Some people just don’t understand the love of piggies!

Guinea pig ownership is a bit of a minefield really.
We have people who are blown away by the fact that half of our living room is devoted to fleece lined C&C cages, and people who are horrified.
At the end of the day you need to do what feels right for you and your own piggies.

There is no right or wrong where you keep piggies. It really comes down to whether you have space in the house or garden and where you want to keep them. Mine are outside piggies as this is my choice. If you want to keep your piggies inside then that is your choice.
