Piggy A to Z: C is for C&C Cages

For those of you who may not have heard of C&C cages these are cages made of square grids joined together into any size and shape you want.

We love our C&C cage and mummy loves the way it makes things like cleaning and playtime easier.

Here is our cage in its normal set up, as you can see the humans have added a solid frosted panel across our doorway this is to stop us from throwing hay on their new carpet.

For cleaning out and playtime the whole end panel swings open allowing easy access for the humans (Mummy pulls the correx base out when cleaning) and easy exiting for us.

To make our play area the humans have 8 grids joined together and hinged with cable ties at 2 grid intervals.

This folds flat for easy storage when not in use.

And connects to our existing C&C cage with bulldog clips to make our large play area.

So what do you think of our set up?

We would love to see pigtures of your cages so please share them with us.

Happy Easter everyone!

"What's all this about?" says Tyrion Piggyfriend. " C is for chocolate? I guess that these are all for our Slave as we don't eat chocolate. Why not C is for chicory instead?"

"No," says Slave. " Look round, sweetie, and read the sign."

" Oh! Happy Easter," reads Tyrion. " That's all right then. We may yet get chicory. Happy Easter to all of our readers from me and the Piggyfriends."

Friday video: Guinygirlz morning feeding ritual

Mom filmed us getting our morning piece of veggie today...

We were pretty well behaved, sometimes we fall over each other, and lean on the others back to be higher up and run against the window to get to the veggies first. Tijger will start doing spins when she gets impatient.. but today we behaved for the video.

How does your morning ritual look? We would love to see little videos of it.

Have great Wheekend,
the Guinygirlz and boar Berke

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day from Agent Popcorn and Dmitri (who should be figuring out his agent name soon)! 

Happy St. Patrick's Day

On behalf of all the Piggyfriends, Angelina ( aka Agent Mouse ) would like to send St. Patrick's Day greetings to all of our readers.

She thinks that the hood of Slave's fleece makes an excellent cavy cosy. Slave hopes that she does not leave any calling cards behind after the photoshoot. Angelina likes everything being green today as that means more lettuce, kale, cucumber, celery and parsley and she hopes that Slave can find some fresh grass, which has been in short supply of late.

Have a lovely day everyone!

Peter Gurney memorial candle lighting

We have lots of candles burning here at Piggyfriends. Last year our oldest piggy, Gandalf, did the honours so this year we picked our second oldest, Otto, to help out. Here he is.

"I think that I deserve a reward for lighting all of those candles," says Otto.

We think so too so here he is with a yummy chicory leaf.

Well done Otto!

Did you light a candle this evening? If so, we'd love to see your pigtures. Look for our Contribute button at the top of the page and follow the very easy instructions.

Peter Gurney Memorial: Light a real candle at 9 March at 8 pm (in your timezone)

For those of you that haven't seen the message elsewhere:
"REMINDER: Invitation to light a candle in honor of Peter Gurney and all of the piggies and pets with him at the Rainbow Bridge on March 9th, at or around 8:00 pm, in your particular time zone. This is our 11th candle light memorial in honor of Peter Gurney, who passed away in 2006 in England. He was a tireless advocate for guinea pigs who left the world with a wealth of guinea pig knowledge that we would not have had without him. His books and knowledge has helped all of us. We can share the moment with or without piggies, and all you need to do is light a candle at 8:00 pm. As candles are lit in each time zone, the light will travel around the world for all at the Rainbow Bridge to see and know that we are remembering them on this special day. Afterwards, please tell us where you lit your candle by posting your location to the GPDD, and we will compile a listing of all the places where a candle was lit. This is in memory of any pet you wish to remember, so tell others to light a candle too, and get their location for the list.
Audrey Remembering Gordon, Reese, and Petito"

You can comment on our post to let us know when you lit a candle on the 9th, and we will forward it to Audrey. Please let us know where you lit a candle!
