    I bed them on fleece covered towels on top of newspaper. I love my weekers.

    That is a really nice setup! Lots of room to run and play! And the piggies are adorable!! How do you keep the fleece clean? These guys can be messy! A guinea pig was my first 'very own' pet, and I've had at least one ever since!

    I bet something like that would work for a rabbit, too.

    The fleece IS mysteriously clean. How do you do it?!!!

    I love your cages. We found those a couple of years ago. We know have them set up for our guinea pigs and rabbits. We did have one rabbit that either climbed out or jumped out. The ones we have now stay in it.

    I know the mystery to the clean cage. Do your guinea pigs use a litter box? I thought of that once but read that they don't use it. If yours does I'm going to try it with my sons.

    Your guinea pigs are adorable.

    I love guinea pigs so much and would love to have a million of them... too bad I'm horribly allergic to them [​IMG]. I did have them a few years a go and absolutely loved them. I kept them in a kiddy pool with a a ring of wire along the inside so they couldn't jump out. I even had a guinea tractor outside so they could graze during the day.
