Hi, my guinea pig's set-up is very basic at the moment (a tube, igloo and a "tent" hideaway.) I can't pay for anything too expensive right now, so am looking for some ideas about enriching their home from items that could be found in the house, garden, or for quite cheap.
Any ideas are appreciated, thanks :)

Here's some things I do:
Stuff toilet rolls with hay and/or veggies

Cut some doors in cardboard boxes for some new and interesting hideys

Turn an existing hidey upside down and cover the top with a towel (don't keep it that way too long though as they might wee in it🤣)

Place veggies on top of hideys and hidden under hay around their cage for them to forage for

All the suggestions in this video are quick easy and cheap

I hope this helps 🙂
