NEW: 6 Top Tips for a Clean Cage and Litter Trained Guinea Pigs! | Squeak Dreams

How to keep your cages looking fresh and clean every day! Follow these 6 tips to encourage your guinea pigs to use litter trays and make it easier to clean up after them!

1. Use litter trays and position them in areas of the cage where piggies are more inclined to go anyway - think darker shaded corners or underneath hidey huts.

2. Put HAY in the litter trays! Guinea pigs pee and poop whilst they munch on hay, so by adding hay to the litter trays they are far more likely to use them. Don't worry about them eating soiled hay - you should provide them with fresh hay at least twice a day and fully clean the litter trays every day.

3. Get large litter trays. Forget about those corner ones - they just don't work and are not big enough to provide your piggies with a decent space to eat hay. Start off with cat litter trays and maybe even create your own larger trays in the future. I have a tutorial video for making a great size litter tray from an under bed storage box:

4. Make sure the lining for the rest of the cage is different to the material in the litter trays. Fleece liners do this and work great for larger cages. Guinea pigs will naturally avoid peeing on fabrics if they have a nice hay filled litter tray to use.

5. Do small things to encourage them to use the litter trays. For example - when you put your guinea pigs back into the cage after laptime, and when they probably need to pee, place them straight in a litter tray. You can also put some old poops in the litter trays after you have cleaned them out.

6. Use waterproof pads! I love these as they mean I don't have to change and wash the liners as often. They also help keep your cosy items nice and new!

I hope you found these tips useful! If you enjoyed the video, please comment, like and subscribe.

Macaw playing with dog

UPDATE July 2015: WOW over 100k views! Glad you enjoyed this! All the animals are healthy and doing well. Mycroft is older now, and no longer wants to play with the dogs.

Vexx, Shiba Inu, playing with Mycroft, Camelot macaw. Okami, Alaskan Klee Kai, makes sure Vexx isn't being too rough, she is very protective of the macaw.

NOTE: This situation only happened a couple of rare times. Mycroft is a baby in this video, and doesn't understand the dangers. He just wants to play. I do NOT recommend letting your pets in the same situation.

Daily Guinea Pig Routine | Spring 2015

Daily Guinea Pig Routine | Spring 2015

Thanks for watching! This was a highly requested video so I thought it was time to make an updated guinea pig routine as so much has changed since my last one. As you probably noticed from the video, the guinea pigs have a new cage! This is because they just weren't using the space in the large cage and it seemed a waste; the reason we made the previous cage so large was because we just put all the sows together for the first time and we wanted to reduce the risk of them fighting by giving them more room however they all started to get along very well after introducing Bramley and I thought that it would be more practical to make the cage a little bit smaller - it is still large enough for 8 guinea pigs as it is 7x5 grids so they have plenty of space. 
To find out more information about their new cage, click the link to my latest blog post - http://petspalacetv.wix.com/guineapig...

Please note: The fresh vegetables that I feed my guinea pigs are different each day so this was just an example of what I feed them on one day but it varies all the time.

Shuka Vana ~ Rehabilitation Centre for Birds

His Holiness Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji's deep concern for the preservation of our environment has manifested itself in Avadhoota Datta Peetham, Mysore as Kishkindha Moolika Bonsai Garden, Ashwashala (Horse stables), Goshala (Cow shelters) and Shuka Vana (rehabilitation centre for birds).

Parrots are not just agreeable birds with their chirping sounds and attractive, vivid colors. Parrots have a specific spiritual connection with the nine planets (Navagrahas), the twelve zodiac signs (Rasis related to birth stars), the numerals of the dates in each month, and the seven musical notes Sa, Ri, Ga, Ma, Pa, Da, Ni (Saptaswaras) in Indian classical music.

With divine intuition, Sri Swamiji has identified sets of species of parrots that represent each of the above as its vibrant, living, breathing, visible presiding deity. Seeing these divine parrots and providing them nourishment, shelter, and care enhances good fortune and heightens positive energy. The parrots are related to each of us either by representing our birthdate, zodiac sign, or the planet or musical note that stimulates us.

What You Need for Your New Guinea Pig

*********EXTREMELY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ********** Planet Petco Softwood bedding is NOT safe for guinea pigs anymore! If you want to use Planet Petco bedding like this, PLEASE use the ASPEN kind! Softwood bedding is either made from pine or cedar, which is BAD for them! It will give them a URI (Upper respiratory infection) which you will need to take your guinea pig to the vet for! It slowly kills your guinea pigs! PLEASE DO NOT USE PINE OR CEDAR! I recommend using Carefresh or and aspen bedding. I DO NOT use this bedding. As you can see in their cage, I use a piggybed spread (fleece.) I recommend using fleece (If not, Carefresh bedding). If you have questions on how to use fleece or how to wash it, ask me in the comments please. Thank you! 

Hi everyone! I hope you liked the video! Sorry that I didn't do the prices of everything you need for a guinea pig, I couldn't find out how much money everything I bought was. If you want to know the price of something or where I bough it, just ask me in the comments. If you have any requests, please let me know in the comments! I will be doing more request videos soon! Please comment, rate and subscribe! Bye!
