I don't know if Mop is being serious or just taking the mickey, but for realsies: now that you've brought them inside, assuming they're somewhere warm (centrally heated) you cannot put them back outside until winter has passed. The same applies to rabbits. They adjust to the temperature, and the shock of the change could kill them.

We bought a big indoor hutch for our Guinea pigs, wasn’t expecting it to be this big though!

Thanks Mop and Jem.

Much appreciated.

Only the best for my boys.

They’re used to having the full run of the garden so thought it’d be too restrictive to put them back in their old indoor hutch for winter.

Its really hard to get a good pic of Kit, the black boy but Bea the tabby is SOOO photogenic...

Aww, they're awesome. Lockdown kitties ftw. We got two from the RSPCA and they're just the best. Always either chasing each other round bouncing off everything, wrestling or cuddling.

They are very cute. We've been lucky, we had enough space to get the little blighters and they've really brightened up lockdown for us.

You may find https://haybox.club/ useful btw. I use it for my two rabbits. One box per month is generally enough (aside from over winter when I buy a couple extra) :)


Finally got it sorted! Thank you for this. I ordered 4kg a month and see how it goes.

What I did learn: The hay box delivery is literally hay in a box and has sat in the kitchen all afternoon and now my hayfever is off the scale!


Anyone else having issues with missing orders and poor customer service from them?

My December order was a bit slow but I added an extra box at the last minute, otherwise everything has been fine. Not had to contact customer support though.

Did you resolve your haybox issue MaliA? This month's box was paid for on the 12th and normally ships within 24-48hrs but no sign yet...

The missing box turned up yesterday, a week after I had chased them. This was from 30th Dec order.

Currently have an paid for but unfulfilled order form the 13th Jan.

Mine came a couple of days after I posted. Definitely slower than I'm used to, but the website has a little banner about high demand due to the covids.

Our rescue dog Tanka who is officially a 'Bulldog cross' (Bulldog and some Collie we think)

She's 7 but we got her in January last year - picture from our walk in the snow yesterday

If we are sharing pics of pups!

Lady Giggleton, or Giggles, or Gigs, or Wiggles, or Wigs, or any combination of the above.
Virtually blind, rattles when she walks due to all the tablets she is on, wakes me up at 3am to go out every night, 21 years old.
Cross between a Jack Russell and a Japanese Chin (we think, she was a rescue dog)

Ian the Pomeranian, 5 years old, has a genetic condition that means she loses her fur every so often, so she currently looks like a scabbed rat.
Stupidest dog you will ever meet and a complete prick.

My daft dog Arra cost me £300 yesterday when she staged a midnight break in to the pantry and ate as much as she possibly could, including a whole loaf of bread and at least three mince pies. Mince pies contain raisins, which are incredibly toxic to dogs and she was pretty ill so I had to take her to the emergency vet yesterday. Kidney function tests came back ok so hopefully no long lasting effects. As soon as we got home, in an incredibly bold move, she attempted to eat the contents of the bin :roll:

:kiss:

Tanka is *very* food orientated and I'm sure if we let her she would just not stop eating anything and everything

One of the advantages we have now is she's basically never left alone

I've also lost track of the amount of times I've googled "can dogs eat <insert whatever she's got into or that we may want to give her some of>" and although I think everyone knows you dont feed them chocolate there are a lot of other small thinks (like raisins) that I would never have thought would be bad for them.

Onions, garlic, grapes, etc... It's a wonder they are still alive really, as they have no sense of self preservation when it comes to food.

Arra ate a whole bag of flour not long after we rehomed her. She was tooting out puffs of smoke for a couple of days after that.

I'm in love with Tanka's fluffy ears!!

As we're talking dogs I feel like it's only fair to share... we put a deposit down on a puppy 2 weeks ago.

I know it's cliché - the lockdown puppy - but we've been talking about this for 2-3 years. My 'grand plan' was to get a young-ish rescue doggo, but with kids and cats that was nigh on impossible pre-lockdown, and now the demand has shot up I think we'd have more chance of winning the lottery.

Probably completely bloody mad because we've got enough going on at the minute, but I hope that the good bits outweigh the initial chaos of training and poops and god knows what.

It's the little one climbing on mum's face in this pic :luv:

Super cute. Is it a Labrador? (I’m useless with dogs!) I can’t tell the difference between labradors and golden retrievers. I had one growing up and don’t even know what that was.

Nope - and every suggestion Gaz makes I've decided is terrible. I'm hoping when he starts to develop more of a puppy-like face (as opposed to a little scrunched up ball :DD ) something will come to me!

We bought one of those "over the radiator" cat beds for the new floofs. However, our Jack Russel has commendeered it for her own.
