lmao,
well i line my hutch with paper then saw dust but for u paper and straw would be fine, then i stuff the bed part with hay, the hutch has 2 sections, one bit is where they sleep.

they eat guinea pig food, u can pick up a bag for a couple of quid from the shop, they also love fresh food, basha ate half a cucumber to himself last night!!

i go to sommerfield next to me at night and get a bag full of reduced veg lol basha also likes grapes and apples!!

what else........ thats about it, once u get one and look in the guinea pig section u will see all the diff stuff u can get, ive got a boredom ball, shampoo a brush lol

do u have a pets a home? u could go buy a book about them, or they do free leaflets about them.

oh i bought a bed from pets at home, its like a cat bed and its so snuggly, i sneak up and peak in and hes curled in it lol

i keep Basha outside in his hutch but we bring him in everyday, well jess demands him to come in lol

sorry got carried away lol x

saw dust is different to wood shavings saw dust is exactly that its the fine dust the pigs in pet shops are kept on shavings not dust.
