- There is No Cure
:o) I'm sure you will figure it out.
She is for my 8 year old daughter who is suffering from anxiety at school...my plan is to have her go through training with this dog and eventually do therapy visits at the local children's hospital.
Now we have a stacked 2x4 on a 2 grid high stand. There is no lid on the top as there is no way for Louie to get into it. We have doors that swing open on each level to get into the cage.
She knows which ones she can sniff at (most just don't care about her and love to nibble her nose) and which ones she cannot even be around (some are scared of her, I don't blame them). She has learned to not lick them anymore, thank God. Doggie slime! She is a beagle mix so her prey drive is pretty high.
During floor time she is either in another room separated by a doggie gate or being watched very carefully by myself and the husband.
Anyway, the new lid looks great. Pat on the back to the husband for making the extra trip. It was worth it. I think your pigs will be happy without a loft for a while. It's good to rearrange the cage sometimes.
My grandmother had two pigs in a petstore cage on top of a dresser. She had several golden retrievers that were always fine with the pigs but she also fostered goldens for a rescue. One foster she brought in knocked the cage off the dresser and the pigs escaped. One of the pigs got away and hid under a dresser in another room, but the other one... was found on the rug in front of the door for them to see when they got home.
One of the girls,not sure which, started peeing in front of the cage every night. I think she was telling the boys, "I'm here, and I'm watching you. You're mine if you ever get out!" They have since been banned from roaming the apartment at night. Kitchen, Hallway, my room!
