I'm just wondering if my piggie will be ok.. I am currently in a blackout where there is no electricity and may not have any for a few days due to severe weather... I have no source of heat just candles for light... Should I do anything to keep my piggie warm or will he be ok

Sorry to hear about your situation. Is your piggy living indoors? If so, is your house exceptionally cold?

You can try a few simple steps to help keep your piggy warm - add a few extra handfuls of hay for him to snuggle in; place a blanket over the cage (making sure to keep one side of the cage uncovered); add extra fleece beds/hideys (if you have any) to help keep him snug

I'm sure he'll appreciate the extra cuddles :) I hope you get your power back soon.

My piggie and us survived the night and we finally have power... Not sure for how long bit at least it's warming up... Thanks for the advice and I'm glad I have a happy piggie this morning :)
