I wish I knew when this was from. I clicked on my inbox by accident and it was there. I never got a notification. I’m so sorry. I hope I can still help you.
I think bedding takes longer to clean, if you have the proper sized cage. (You are planning a C&C cage, right? One guinea pig needs at least 7 square feet of space and you need to add an additional 2 square feet for every pig you add to the cage.) You’d have to sit there and scoop out all that bedding. It took me three house from start to finish with bedding. Fleece takes me about an hour. Fleece also doesn’t trigger my allergies as bad. The pigs like fleece better. I’d definitely recommend going with fleece. If for some reason you absolutely must use regular bedding use Carefresh!
It’s always better for your pig to have a friend. In some places, like Sweden (I think it was Sweden) it’s actually ILLEGAL to own only one pig. Guinea pigs are herd animals and they prefer to be in groups.
Yeah, definitely don’t breed your pets. Leave that to the professionals PLEASE! You need to know about genetics and all that. The chance you’ll kill your mother pig and end up with stillborn/sick guinea pigs is VERY high.
The gender does’t matter too much as long as they’re the same gender. I’ve heard that females are less likely to fight with each other. (Although regardless of gender expect some fighting for dominance. As long as no one is getting hurt, just let nature happen.) I know people with males and they’ve never complained.
Try finding a cavy rescue or check shelters before buying from a petstore. There’s tons of piggies that need a good, loving home!
Definitely continue to do research. It’s important! There’s lots of things about guinea pig that very few people know!

It’s so hard for me to remember to upload pictures of the pigs for you guys. I usually just Instagram all my pictures and this isn’t a main blog so they won’t go from there to here. It’s a pain in the butt to remember to upload them here too. I liked writing how to posts but I don’t know what to write about. Bleh.
I’m not sure if any of you guys are into special effects makeup/horror makeup. If any of you are please, please, pretty please with a cherry on top go follow my special effects blog! :)
All my new fleece is here! I ordered them from PiggiePopShop. I love it all so much! <3
I have a few new videos up. Check them out! :)
She sent it in two boxes but the first batch is scheduled to come tomorrow! I’m so excited! Expect a “how to clean a cage with bedding” video in the near future. BECAUSE I’LL NEVER HAVE TO CLEAN A CAGE COMPLETELY FILLED WITH BEDDING AGAIN! YAHOO! I highly recommend this girl. She is AWESOME!
Also, friendly reminder that I’m still here and you can ask me any piggy questions you have. I miss you all!
I’ve really been getting into posting Youtube videos lately. I post a lot of cute videos as well as some informative ones. I’m planning on doing a cage cleaning video with carefresh bedding as well as an unboxing and review of new fleece stuff and bedding I ordered. I’ll do a fleece cleaning video soon too. :)
