A blog focused on all things guinea pig, including diet, care tips, cage setups, toys, vet visits, daily life, crazy cavy antics and more.
As told and illustrated by a group of guinea pigs from sunny California.
Remember the wooden guinea pig houses and hay wagon in our earlier posts? We just found out that they are adding a new Wild West themed collection of cavy hideaways and wanted to share their pictures here. If westerns don't suit your taste, they also offer a piggy sized beach house.
It is no secret that we guinea pigs love cucumber and are possessive of our allotted slices. When presented with a serving our usual MO is to hold it in our mouths and carry it off to eat at a safe distance far away from the other pigs. Pigloos provide a good defense and make it strategically easier to fend off poachers whom have managed to finish their food first. However as you can see in the video, things don't always go according to plan..
An action packed video featuring us pigs eating bluegrass hay from the wooden hay wagon. Eating counts as action right? We purchased this for $20 and had it shipped to us in the San Francisco Bay Area.
We managed to snag this guinea pig cage accessory one of the last times Marsha from the Cozy Cavy put a few premade items up for sale a few months ago. The Cozy Cave is a snuggly reversible fleece tunnel bed that we pigs can sleep in and run through.
Chances are as a guinea pig owner, you are undoubtedly familiar with the sight of hay being scattered around all over the place. This holds true especially if you buy hay in large quantities such as flakes or bales, as people with several cavies are likely to do.
Since our hay is typically purchased from KMS Hayloft, our previous arrangement was to keep it stored in the large cardboard boxes it was shipped in. While reading up on hay storage we ran across the idea of keeping hay in a wicker laundry hamper.
