Wooden hidey houses

Erin, I know you have one of these.

Just a few questions, did you buy it and you had to assemble it? I bought them today, and I know I have to assemble it, but I was surprised with the splinters and the awful pine smell. I am returning them both.

Are there different hidey houses that are better?

I bought one at petsmart that had to be assembled and hadthe sharp edges and splinters, I sanded it down some. The boys use that one.

The timber hide-a-ways are better, smoothe too. I gave the medium sized one to the gerbils, the large one is in my basement out of use at themoment. I don't use any houses for most of my pigs. The boys have a house on their upper decks, right now fudge and Ollie have the wooden house and a cuddl-e cup, Sparky and Rover have a stool and a log cabin that came with chloe and Lila from their former adopter.

I've got 3 large fiddle sticks, about 5 children's step stools, and 6 pigloos in addition to the timber hide-a-way that are stored in the basment for the time being.

Thanks, Erin! I am definetly returning them because the one I opened had the glue that they use to make it plywood, and Scott said that the glue was toxic ! And the smell of the pine was so bad that I started to get sick.

look the ferret store and order the boys a large sized fiddle sticks. My pigs love them and they are easy to trap those 'runners' when you want to snuggle them.

Use this link and help out paw-talk - Ferretstore.com

Do a search for "fiddle sticks" and it should come up, make sure if you do buy one or two that you get the large size. Looks like they've gone down a few cents in price, they used to be $9.99

I dont know how long she's had it for Chloe and Lila before they came back to me, so I don't know if it did or not.

When Harry came he had a wooden house that took up half of the small cage he was in. His cage was in serious need of a clean. When I took the wooden house out the bottom inch or so was in bad need of a clean.

I still have the wooden house. Does anyone think that if I got an inch or so cut off the bottom that it would have a smell acceptable enough to use again?

You see Harry had been kept on cedar. And there was like a three inch layer of soggy, stinky cedar that the house was resting on.

Cavy slave to Mama Christie, Scruffy, Sno pig and Harry.
