Ours do too. Petey will put his front feet up on it and snuggle his belly as close to it as he can. His little eyes half close while he just stands there getting some relief. If he could talk, he would be saying, "ahhhhhhh"!I'm still using the frozen water bottles--they love those things!
It's suppose to be 90 degrees again the next three days (at least). So, we'll be doing the water dips for them. That seems to help them cope better, also.

I'm not worried about keeping them cool, but I do have a question about ceiling fans and A/C vents being a problem. There is a ceiling fan directly above their cage. Can I ever turn it on? Also there is a vent nearby and I have turned it as much away from them as I can.
Is this an issue? What is the difference between naughty drafts and fans/AC blowing on them? I usually have a ceiling fan going because I love being really cool, but I want if it can cause problems.
I basically moved their cage because we are having a birthday party tomorrow, and I can always move it back.
The cage fans sound like a great idea also. I never worried about fan's and A/C until we got our pigs. I just shut off the air when we left for the day and turned it on once we got home. Now I get paranoid and make sure I have the house set for at least 72 before I leave each day!

I put frozen sheets of ice in those huge ziplock bags under our cage blankets last year. This place is horribly insulated and it's hard to keep it below 78, a/c never shuts off. Ice sheets worked like a charm though to keep them cool.
