A while ago, when I thought I might get Princess Piggy Poo a little guinea pig buddy, I figured I better get her a bigger house. My friend Doug had a spare cage and brought it over.
It looked big when he was wheeling the cage into the living room but in reality the guinea pig living space is only about 4″ longer. That’s not substantial, but bigger is bigger so I moved Princess Piggy Poo into her new place. After a few days, her cage was getting stinky and I wanted to clean it but didn’t have time. Then I realized, her old house is clean and it wouldn’t take any time or effort to move her back, so I did.
The new house, we’ll call her main house because it’s bigger, which is a plus, but it’s deep and difficult for me to get her out. The old house, or guesthouse, is familiar and definitely easier to pick her up. However, whichever house Princess Piggy Poo is in, she mainly hangs out in her hiding house and that takes up the same room in either location. When she’s out of her house, Princess Piggy Poo prefers my pocket or sleeve so a roomy place doesn’t seem to be her priority.
Doug asked me if I wanted him to come back and pick up the main house but I told him to wait. Seems the real reason I like Princess Piggy Poo having two houses is that when one house is dirty the other is clean, and I just move her from house to house. When serving a Princess, it’s grand to have alternatives.
