Hi! :)
Today, I need to do a thorough vacuuming of my room.
Because the guinea pigs have free-roam of my bedroom, I used to have a Ferplast (160?) that I could put the piggies in and easily take into another room.
I recently decided that the cage was simply taking up too much room for its purpose, but I am regretting the decision!
Where do I put the piglets while I vacuum?
I can put them in their carrier, but it is quite small, and I really don't want them to be in there for the 20-30 minutes I need to clean.
Keeping them in my room while I clean is not an option. They are terrified of the vacuum!
Any help is appreciated! :)

I recon they’ll be fine in the carrier. For various reasons mine have not been able to come downstairs the last couple of weekends so they’ve been in their carrier for about an hr whilst I cleaned the cage. They munch hay, they snooze.
Could put them in the bath? (Dry obvs!)

Good idea! I didn't think of the tub! :)

The carrier will be fine for that time. It takes me longer than that when driving to the vets when they don't have an option of being elsewhere. Alternatively you could try a box if you have any boxes larger than the carrier.
