    That's a great idea ozeymum!

    We just have one piggie, we've had her since last school holidays so only a few months. Her name is Ginny and she lives inside in just a basic cage setup. She's a very spoilt piggy who has 4 children fighting to hold her

    @ Liddybugs, i bathed mine so they smelt the same and gave them some of their favourite food to share. Took about 20mins for introductions to happen. They all get along great.

    Love this idea. What a great way to recycle an old toy.

    Advice needed please, our Piggies are a bit dirty, especially around their bottom half. Can you clean them with water/bath them, and if so, what's the easiest way to do it without freaking them out?

    I bath mine in the laundry tub with warm water and guinea pig shampoo. Wash them on a nice warm day and give them a good towel dry (blow dry if they're not too scared of the noise).

    We so this with our birds, hopefully the piggy's love it too
    These are great tips as I have been thinking about what we can do when summer really hits.

    When i bath mine, i pop them in some warm water in the laundry tub. I use a pet friendly wash and clean everywhere apart from near their ears, eyes and mouth(as would hate to get water in their ears). I make sure i dry them as good as possible with a towel(some people use a hair dryer but i think it might be too hot for them).

    Thank you, that's great, I will go and find some Guinea Pig shampoo, we have a few biggish pet stores, so hopefully they'll have some and try them in the laundry tub.

    I'm actually really looking forward to bathing them now, can't wait to see them all spick and span and squeaky clean, I just hope they like water! Thanks for the tips.
