I did create a page to help take the guess work out for those with Skinny (Hairless) Piggies, and other who have higher degrees of wetness problems like urine scald and bumble foot.
Specific For Skinny Guineas
If ever unsure, please don't hesitate to ask!

Also some asked for the Ferret Play page back. Here's a peak in on what's there:

I love the aqua bright butterfly tunnel! I don't think I have cage fleece to match that, believe it or not. I am going to have to try and find some in those bright colors for the girls to get two of those tunnels :)

Thank you Tracis, Lynx, and Weaver!

I hope this doesn't sound anything but silly and light-hearted ... *blink-blink* aumm, I don't think the queen of fleece is suppose to admit to that :P

I know, I know :) I had some that would have matched that perfectly, but it was pretty worn so I threw it out. Now the girls mainly have different pastel colors, or lighter brights. I need something really pretty and bright. I am going tomorrow to go and look. It actually SNOWED here last night so I can't go today. (Yup, snow in Alabama)

Hi WindeSpirit

I'm brand new to GuineaLynx and pretty new to Guinea Pigs too! I was looking through your post and your website an have some questions.

First: I love the idea of having soft fabric houses and igloos, but how do you make them retain their shape and stay put after washings? Is there a removable support or is it just fabric? Same for the tunnels, I like the idea, but wont they "squash" after a washing and be hard for my pigs to get into without pushing them around trying to get the hole open?

Second: I am in awe of the cage set-ups that I have seen on this site! They make me feel like a not so great Guinea mom...I have 2 pigs, one male and one female. They each have their own home (which I called Piggy Palaces until I visited this site today!!). I reused things I had here.

Each cage is a big black lab kennel. I made a plastic "tray" out of corroplast from a local sign shop and there are 3 levels for them to play and relax with wooden dowel "ramps" to access the different levels.

I have a litter box with pine shavings on the top story (because they kept wetting up there) along with a tent and blanket my son got at the pet store, the second story is not very big and is where their food is and the ramp to the third floor.

The first floor has a ramp to the second (providing a hiding area behind it) a hiding area under the second floor shelf, their water bottle and rolling hay dispenser.

The first floor has pine shavings, the second just has their commercial comfort shelf, and the third floor is soft and insulated with foam puzzle mat pieces that I cut to fit over a large piece of wire shelving I had left over from a project.

I can't have the C&C cages because we have a big black lab that I don't completely trust with a cage like that. I see that most people just use blankets, etc in their cages with no commercial bedding at all. I like that idea, but am wondering how in the world you stay on top of keeping it clean? My piggies are definately potty machines! I don't know how I would go about cleaning the poop easily every day and how I would stay on top of the wetting mess if I used strictly fabric. Any suggestions you (or any other members) have would be GREATLY appreciated!!

I'm sorry to have posted so long and to have asked these questions of you on this forum. I am still learning my way around.

Thank you in advance for educating a new Guinea mom! I love them dearly, and so do my boys. I just want to make sure I'm caring for them the way I should.

You might want to check out some housing threads in Cavy Chat (use the search feature). This is not a forum for discussing housing.

WS, I just popped in a hanging tunnel in the pen and Jenni and Sammy love it! They keep going in and out of it as you can see below. (Yes, Jenni's eye is missing. It was removed due to glaucoma and a luxated lens.)

You're teasing Weaver, I really do miss the snow. And if E were to read this I bet she'd have a few words about that!

Welcome to GL Mummato2now! First question, the shapes are retained by a flexible support in most items. Some have just rolled supports, meaning the layers of the roll is the support. There are a few thing that do not have supports in for those that rather that, however there is usually a way to attach to cage to be the main support for it. GuineaPigFun is showing the later in her picture above.

Second question, as Lynx said, this part of the forum is not for discussing housing. If you would like to have blankets made to fit your needed space, size, and/or shapes, you can pop on over to my order form and request them, and we can discuss anything else via e-mail.

GPF - Aww, Jenni and Sammy do look like they are having fun, so glad they are. I'm sorry Jenni lost her eye, but I bet it doesn't slow her down. Looks like Sammy is right behind Jenni in the first picture, a little piggie train. Thank you for posting, that was just what I needed after a long day. :)

Here is the best of both worlds-a Weaver Cuddle Cup under a WS Canopy.

Both Lady Bug and I are big fans of the Canopy when the weather gets warm.

Can't you tell I'm trying to convince WS to make these again? :)

Windespirit, I got your package! Everything is beautiful! I love it and so do the babies. I haven't tried the hay racks yet, that will be in the next day or so.

Thank you!

Glad things arrived safely New Guinea Mom and you like everything! Hope the hay racks will be a hit for them as well when you do try them.

Aww, Lady Bug gets the best of both worlds :)
I'm still fiddling with the design to make them quicker. Soon as I do I'll e-mail you Bugs Mom, promise!

Thank you for sharing New Guinea Mom! Edward looks to me like he's saying, "mine has a back door." Bella looks snuggly warm :) I'm so glad to hear they are all enjoying things and getting to see them is such a treat. Thank you again!

Quinc-Emma, there is still 3 more of the monkey's left at the moment but I'm out of the striped one. There is many others listed and usually I have prints that I just haven't listed as well as solids and things that are better for any embroidery to be put on. All one needs to do is ask ;)
