October…November….December: With the colder months now drawing in, it is important that we keep all our small furries nice and warm. All the guinea pigs at Tiny Paws Rehoming have set up camp in the dining room… (looks like a sea of cages). The sheds, all fully insulated, have now had their heat lamps put up and switched on through the night. If you small furries are outside make sure you take care to keep them nice a snuggly this winter… Hay and Straw are great insulators for bunnies, make sure bedroom areas are crammed full, for Guinea – Pigs just hay would be best… you find with Guinea Pigs as they are such low riders and the straw is quite sharp it can cause problems with their eyes. Hutch protectors/insulators can be purchased from pets at home and other pet stores… they have a insulted interior which keeps heat in, and a waterproof exterior. Some people use old duvets to put over the hutch to keep their bunnies warm, however in wet weather these get damp and are not as effective.
