PostSubject: Shredded paper   Sun Sep 15, 2013 10:37 am

I posted a thread about this some time ago on the usual forum but obviously now I can't go back and see it so thought I'd ask again here.
Is it ok to use shredded paper in squeaks hutch to keep her warm as I'm running out of hay...??
Thanks

I've often thought myself but never done it. Suspect it's fine but can imagine it doesn't last too long.

Yeah it wouldn't last long I don't think. And it would most likely get eaten Mad

Not too keen on plain shredded paper but you can get a paper bedding (it's actually teabag material offcuts) from www.lawsonpetfeeds.co.uk

If you go on Google & search "shredded paper" + "guineapigforum" you'll get results. Then click on the green downward arrow at end of the line in green below the search answer you're interested in. Google cache these pages & you can search anything that's been on the forum as long as you get the right search words. Always remember to type guineapig forum as one word.

I use it for my boys and its fine for them. They occasionally have a small nibble of it but otherwise leave it completely alone.

Regarding the running out of hay. If you buy hay from a pet store or supermarket for piggies to eat have you thought of getting a bale of hay from a farm which cost about £4. If you prefer the other hay for eating you could use the hay from the bed for bedding. You'll find that they'll probably eat it too & it probably works out a lot cheaper than shredded paper. Never use shredded paper from a home or office shredder it could cut their mouth.
