Two of my guinea pigs are hairless, and with the weather getting colder,i thought they might like to have a blankie. My cage has a Peter Pan/Tinkerbell theme, and I had these Tinkerbell fat quarters lying around for a while - finally found something to do with them. Each blankie is made out of one fat quarter, and a square of fleece that's a little smaller.

Here they are lying on my messy floor:

Hanging in the cages:

Costanza thinking about maybe hiding behind one:

They are quilted in a big X across the whole thing, and have ties on the corners to  hang in the cage. So far they have only been using them a little, but they do stay much cleaner than their beds.

They were super easy to make, and I am really happy with how they turned out!

Thanks for looking!

Holy moly, I've never seen a hairless piggie before! Are they naturally hairless, or did they have hair and lose it at one point?

My piggie Creampuff had to have one of her eyes removed earlier this year because she had glaucoma. The vet shaved the side of her head where the eye was removed, so on one side she looked normal and on the other side looked like a shrew of some kind.  Cheesy She didn't live much longer after the surgery due to complications, but she was my sweetie.

Very cute blankets, by the way.  Smiley Nice of you to think of the piggies.

Thanks for the comments.

My hairless boys are skinny pigs, so they were born hairless.
