I know! Makes me want to change into a guinea pig and live with her herd! ;-)

If I may ask, what's underneath your fleece? How often do you change fleece?

Dear Yuyu, we had to put an end to your suffering. We tried our best, you know that. Kissed you goodbye and you knew we were sad, as you didn't shove your foot in our faces for snuggling you too long. Rest well sweetie, prolonging your life just would be too selfish from our point of view.

Our cage setup is this: wooden board lacquered with PU, to make it water proof, on both sides and rims. I let it dry for a week, to get the PU vapors out. Then a thin sheet of lexan, to protect the wood. Than a 2/3 inch thick anti bacterial anti fungal yoga mat, for softness. Then 100% pure cotton beach towels. Fleece on top. The pigs adore it, as the setup is soft enough to sleep on and hard enough to run om as well.

Oh no!! I'm so so so sorry about YuYu's passing. But no pig had a happier or more loved family. *Hugs*

Oh, I am so sorry, pigjes. These are always hard decisions even when they are the kindest.

I'm so sorry to hear about Yuyu. It was the first thing I saw on my Facebook this morning. I'm just so sad. :(

Thanks everyone!

I had nicknamed her Paunchie, because she always enjoyed being hand fed a lot.

Hub had a hard time staying with her at the vet, but he did well. Originally, she was his best bud, she only really came to appreciate me more as soon as her teeth issues began.

Still, I have some pics of her left, as the past setting before she was too ill was a waffle block maze, I call it the ah-maze-ing maze, because it's one of the best items I have to make the pigs enjoy themselves. Sweet Yuyu had a ball in it.

Thanks everyone. The pigs were quiet for a few days, especially the first day. It's sad to see them suffering as well. Yiyi is bonding with Aiko, Aiko with Plucky. Aiko had been a loner, most of the time, as long as Yuyu lived. Dynamics can change indeed.

Thanks!

And now, something completely different. Years ago, I had Syrian hams. There were no dwarf available even then in my country. I always loved to have some back, but lacked the space. Our small house was already filled with hobby stuff and 1/3 was overtaken by pigs' stuff, lol.

I discovered that the space station setting I was ecstatic about for so many years had become vintage, so I ordered the last pieces I could find online, together with some other items I found related to the same theme.

Together with the help of friends, stuff was collected and shipped to me, as direct shipment was not an option on these items anymore.

So, this year we moved to a better location and into a bigger bungalow. Finally space for an Ikea Detolf cage. A wooden ladder and a coconut house with hanging ladder are still on it's way to be shipped here, but this gives you the idea.

And 2 space dwellers moved right in, from a very nice lady who accidentally got a boy a girl, instead of 2 boys. Found her by chance on Facebook, as she was surprised by her oops nest and didn't know what to do with them. I even might have found a new friend there!

Here are Nova and Luna, appropriate names for our hamstronauts, and their Andrammidice.
