  2. Here is a photo of a C&C type cage that I made back in the summer last year. At the time I couldn't find any of the cubes so I used wire that I bought at Homebase for the sides :D With a bit of imagination and lots of cable ties, lol, this was the final product ;D Not a bad job and 100% piggy approved ;D

  3. Oh no, that photo is way to big *blush* Just trying to sort it out now.......... I feel as though I've fallen into their cage with them when I look at that, lol!
     
  4. Aww, that's lovely Wheekster! I am in the process of building a HUGE C&C cage for my boars, once that is done I will put up pigtures!

    I am building a C&C cage at the moment for my piggies at my boyfriends house. It will prob be 5x2 with an upstairs for now. 6 piggies possibly couple of more will be living there. The others at my mums house are in cages and hutches. I will take pictures of them tomorrow :)
     
  8. oooOOOooo, that looks lovely. Is the vetbed very easy to wash and look after? Does it get wet very quickly? I've often thought about giving it a go but I'm really not sure ?
     
  9. i wash mine on day 5 and they are not wet on top but when oyu look underneath on the newspaper it is. it doesnt smell either. its easy and much quickier

    Me too... I wanted to get some for when the piggies move into their C&C cage however it is very very pricey! Especially when I will need a lot of it. We also don't have a washing machine at my boyfriends house yet. We get our parents to do all our washing lol... so I wouldn't be able to wash it quick enough as they would need to go in something else while its washing.
     
  11. Is it flexible enough to go in a washing machine easily? and does the hay and poops fall of easily before going in the washing machine? Sorry for so many questions its just I am very intrigued by it, lol.
     
  12. Some lovely cavvy homes there! I am still trying to sort mine out but here is a latest pic of mine, and I have had no probs with it so far!
    First pic is the cages they were in...

    This was my 1st attempt for the boys..

    At the moment I have this, but I need to re do it as I will have some more piggies soon. I figured that the boys spent 8 months living in a hutch above some females and still got on so for the time being (not for the long term so bare that in mind) , I put the girls on top but it has since been made into a 3x2.

  14. yes the vets beds go easily in the washing machine. the hay and poo and stuff comes off with a little shake an dbrush. i know someone on ebay who does great vetbeds very thick too.
