This is really nice run for two very cutie piggies
. It's great you recycled that firegard, it looks like the perfect size/strength for the job!
I'm not trying to force any views on you or anything, but piggies have such wonderfully diverse and intelligent personalities, and adore being part of the family and interacting with everyone inside the house, just like a dog or cat. Having my piggies indoors (I have 6 now so they have their own bedroom LOL), means I don't miss any of their crazy antics, which I'm sure they show mainly because they know they are safe from the stresses of outside.
My parents bought me and my sister two little piggies when we were kids (one was called coco haha because thats what I came up with for a little brown pig), and we kept them in a cage inside the house simply because we lived in a farm area with lots of snakes and nasty predators around. Anyway, little fluffy lived to a nice old age of 10, and my baby cokie only passed away last year, and she was about 11 and a half years old. To give non-piggie people some idea of things I think the average lifespan of piggies is around 4-6 years, and the world record is around 13 I think. I really believe they lived so long because we kept them indoors, but I think genes may have played a part as well (they were sisters).
A great resource for making nice indoor piggie cages and other info is http://www.guineapigcages.com/
, the site generally advocates keeping piggies inside year-round, but sometimes that's really not practical (renting, space etc.) I would be wary of posting on the forums there however, as there are some people with very extreme views on piggy parenting, ready to shout down anyone who admits to keeping their pigs outside/giving them pig mixes/whatever else they don't believe in. They do mean well, but it's difficult to portray that over the internet I guess. In any case, that website has very accurate information on piggie care and such things; there is a lot of mis-information out there.
Anyway, sorry to get rather off-topic, but feel free to PM me if you want to talk any more, so as to not hijack this thread any more than I already have hehe
