Washing fleece bedding – Guinea pig laundry – The gross of it

The D.C. area has been getting rained on for weeks. Flash flood warning every few days. We just moved into a new house and our stuff is everywhere. What did I do with the guinea pig laundry I needed to do? Good question. It went out back on the deck. Dismal tried to put a […]

I’m a little behind, but let me share some new items with you. In a separate post, we will be using our cats, but with Oxbow we tested our guinea pigs. What Chewy gave us (gratis) this month were Vitamin C Tabs, made with compressed hay, and very easy to administer to your guinea pig. […]

Lily Momma has so much energy after healing from her full spay

This guinea pig is running my life! Several times a day, she’ll see me walk through the dining room, and she just starts accosting me. Then whatever she’s dreaming about for snacks sounds great to her daughter, Murphy, and she joins in as well. Lily has been hopping in and out of the hay box […]

Lily is about ready to go back to the main pig pen. She’s talking to me a lot more, and we’re discontinuing some of her medications this week. Yesterday was 1 week since her spay surgery and tomorrow will be 1 week since she came home. Hopefully I can clean the pig pen this evening […]

We’re going to the vet again

Lily’s appointment is on Wednesday in Virginia. She’s my 4(ish) year old guinea pig that gave birth to a bunch of pups a few years ago. She’s never been to the doctor since she moved in with me, and I found out this weekend that she’d chewed the hair off her lower side. This is […]

TOM! – New guinea pig improvements planned

Recently, I downsized the guinea pig C&C pen down from 2×6 grids to 2×4 grids. I tacked some liners together, which have been holding up at the laundromat. We even bought a table with telescoping legs to have the pen up a little higher off the ground, and leave extra room for storage underneath. It’s […]

Photo collection and comments from Guinea Pig Pen rebuild

I started off with cheap moving blankets that other users have verified worked for their small animals. I did a test on one in our top loader machine, and it came out noticeably thinner and left lint all over the machine, but wasn’t destroyed. I ended up taking the other five blankets to the laundromat […]
