Inside the summerhouse

Before I bought my cute, little guinea pigs, I had to prepare the inside of their home.  Daddy and I had to put a special oil varnish all over the outside and floor to help protect the wood from rotting.IMG_3343_r A big job was making the fence to keep the guinea pigs in their area.  We weren’t getting a small hutch because they need lots of space to roam around and it’s also easier to clean out.  It is cruel to keep them in a cage, especially in winter when they can’t go outside on the grass.  The summerhouse is 10ft by 8ft and the piggies space is 3ft by 8ft so they have A LOT of room to popcorn in.

We have chosen to use fleece because sawdust can go in their eyes and is dusty so they can’t breathe.  Mummy got cheap fleeces from Primark and Ikea.  Granny gave me lots of old towels to go under the fleece.  Under the towels is newspaper.  Daddy made two pigloos and the lids are good because they come off so we can sweep inside easily.

My next blog post will be about getting my guinea pigs.  I will try and write it on Wednesday.
