It's just started to rain, and i have been outside waterproofing the guinea-pigs run against what appears to be a fairly heavy summer shower.
I was wondering, how much time do other guinea-pigs spend outside, in summer ours spend several hours out there, from about 9am till 10pm at weekends, and when it rains we just waterproof parts of the cage.
The run is about 1.5 meters by 2m, and split in half because the girls don't get on, while they're otuside they ussually have a couple of different shelters each, and water bottle, plus all the grass they can eat, if they're out for more than four hours they will also have more substansial food, although they seem to prefer the grass, and I have never known them eat anythign but grass and treats while they are outside.
The run is fairly cat proof, although I wouldn't leave them there completely unsupervised, and our local neighbourhood cats are scared of our garden (Our guinea-pigs are allowed to roam freely around at times, so I apply liberal amounts of water to any cat I see, we have a neighbour who has about ten, and too many edible pets)
The guinea-pigs love lawn time, although they do spend a lot of it sunbathing (including on one occasion, when we put three young males in with Moe, their dad, a guinea-pig pyramid, with Moe crashed out, with two babies lieing ontop of him, and benjy flopped across the top of the pile, Moe seemed a bit confused, but not overly fussed).
So, h0ow much time do other piggles spend on the lawn?
And what do they get up to?
