Playtime in wet grass?

Im still kind of new to having guinea pig and i have a question....yea ...again..hehe.
well, we love to take them outside to play and so that they can much on grass and dandelions when it is nice outside..question..is it ok for them to play on the grass when it is still kinda wet from the sprinklers. Its not soaking wet, just still wet. I wasnt sure if its good for them or not. The weather here in California is beautiful right now and its about 85 degrees right now. So being that the weather it nice and warm do you think that playing in the grass is ok or a no no?

Hmm, as long as its not cold, I dont see how it could hurt. Might leave grass stains on the tummy though.

yeah thats what i was thinking and hoping you would say.

Hey Amber...i am having a tough time finding a place where i live that has coroplast. I dont think i am gonna be able to find it here which is a bummer We want to make a bigger cage since another piggie is going to be joining Harriette soon. At Home Depot or a place like that i might be able to find some kind of plastic sheeting that i think will work. What do you think?

Right now, since the election is over today, the really big election signs are made out of coroplast! Im getting some tonight after work. Most politicians just throw them away, so they don't mind if you go get them. Are you in the US?

Another option would be shower curtain. If your keeping your cage on the floor or on a solid surface, you can use a shower curtain underneith. Some people also use linolium.

Here is an example of a shower curtain from a cage I used to have

you can kinda see that I used zip ties around the outside edge to make sure bedding didn't get out.

here you can see the outside

that seems like a good idea but didnt the curtain get soiled badly? I have heard about training piggies to use a potty like thing...are piggies easily trained to do this? Is that what u did when you used a cage bottom like the curtain?

I didn't like it that much honestly, but it was okay. The bedding soaks up the pee, so it doesn't stay wet or anything. It also prevents it from getting on the floor underneith.

Amber i wasnt able to find coroplast yet, bummer. We got Harriette a little buddy. They are getting along just fine! Its so adorable to watch them together!
Well i needed to make a bigger enclosure for them so we connected Harriettes cage to one of those large under the bed boxes and put those cube things all around it and fastened them together with those little tie things. We used the door on Harriettes cage as a little ramp (covered with material)and a brick (covered as well) for them to climb in and outa both cages. They lve it! So cute when they both run around like little maniac trains behind each other! And man, do they fly when they popcorn all over the place! hehe
They really like it but i do want to still try and find some coroplast to make one big enclosure so this is only temporary. I think that this will do for now.

Hey! Keep looking, you will find some eventually.

Your cage looks good! Very creative.

What is your new pigs name?
