if you have new guinea pigs, it can take some time to get used the ritual. Try to soften the blow with some extra treats and fresh food in the new cage, so they have something to look forward to.

Don't worry, they do get used to it. Ours sometimes still run round a clean cage madly like they've never seen it before. I think they like to get it smelling like home as soon as possible.

Most of mine go a bit nuts, especially JoJo who hates things being neat and tidy and in their place, and within ten minutes will have the hay rack on the floor, the tube in the way of the water, and his ball in his food bowl.

Dodge has to hump Cherry just to show it may be clean, but it's still his love nest. Poor Cherry.

Whiskey and Noodles, my old girls (4 and a half) are a bit more sedate, they rumble around a bit then go to sleep!
