Join Us For Both 2015 Bay Area Pignics

Bay Area Pignic 2015 Guinea Pig Rescue Fundraiser

Yes, that's right - we're happy to share that this year there will be two Bay Area Pignics! In addition to our usual gathering in the Peninsula/South Bay, there will be an event hosted in Marin for North Bay/San Francisco residents. Twice the cuteness, twice the fun.

Oxbow Pure Comfort Small Animal Bedding for Guinea Pigs Review

We've gone over fleece bedding at length on this blog. And as far as alternative bedding options go, the system works great - as long as you're willing to put in the time needed to keep your guinea pig's living environment tidy.


In Our Fridge: Basil

Grilling season is finally here! Many of the girls' favorite fruits and veggies have been cropping up in stores. Watermelon, blueberries, corn, and tomatoes, just to name a few. Basil, however, is one of those herbs that elicits strong opinions. Some guineas love it while others can't stand the scent.

Chocolate. Popsicles. Toast. And now, add green smoothies to the list of foods that overly curious cavies have tried to sneak a taste of.

No, this isn't a belated Valentine's Day project. I realized that I never got around to sharing the finished paw prints so here they are! And in case you missed it the first time, a link to the DIY paw print tutorial.

Every morning, Poof and Belka are the first ones waiting at the cage doors. After all, it's common cavy knowledge that the early pig gets the treat. Or more of them, anyways.


Mowing Season Is Here

It's that time of year again! No, not the holidays. Spring! Blossoms are sprouting, pigs are rejoicing over fresh grass... and us humans are stuck battling the explosion of weeds. But never mind about that.

The Cali Cavy girls were all too happy to get outside the weekend before last. There was even a short term ceasefire that held for a good twenty minutes as they focused on the lawn. After all, priorities! Eat first, squabble later. You can see how thrilled they are in the video.
