New Piggy Palace: Taking It to the Next Level

New Piggy Palace: Taking It to the Next Level

Just this week, we upgraded our two guinea pigs, Ginger and Cocoa, to a deluxe C&C cage with a loft. While the old Marchioro cage was pretty big, the new cage gives them a lot more room to run around and explore.  

We typically like to do these kinds of projects ourselves. But with our daughter’s 13th birthday looming, time running out, and a new piggy cage at the top of her wishlist, we decided to take the easy route. We ordered a pre-cut 4x2 C&C grid cage kit with a 1x2 grid loft from Piggy BedSpreads (www.piggybedspreads.com). They are one of our retailers for STAYbowl™ tip-proof  bowls.

Guinea Pigs Cost More Than You Might Think

Guinea Pigs Cost More Than You Might Think

For some people, a guinea pig is a cute, impulse buy at the pet store. But it shouldn't be that way. These little, furry friends live for quite a long time -- typically five to eight years, and sometimes more! Over time, the cost can really add up. But then, so does the love. :-)

And as with any pet, a guinea pig is a lifelong commitment. Click on the link below for a really good overview of what you can expect to spend on a guinea pig -- about $200 to start. Even a free pet can end up costing a lot in the long run.

We have gotten a really positive response so far from customers on our new Wheeky® Treat Ball! We just started selling this new toy in our online shop (www.wheekypets.com). It is a bright yellow ball with an adjustable opening that drops treats out when pets roll it around. It is a great boredom buster for guinea pigs, rabbits, hedgehogs and all small pets.
