This is the first summer for 30 years that I haven't had a guinea pig .
I have to mow my lawn all the time now. I used to love being able to move the run around and they'd just start working on another patch of grass. All I had to do was keep the edges tidy and mow it if it had a mad growth spurt.
My childhood GPs were fairly free range (no foxes or cats round at the time) and their hutch door was open, they could run inside and up the ramp to their shelter.
Ours ate grass, dandelions, clover. All good
Brussel sprouts (still in the garden growing), raspberry leaves, cabbage plants., they stripped the bark from round a young tree (it was okay though). It's those rodent teeth.The GPs used to insist it was better for them to chew than to go to the vet to have their teeth clipped.
