The Guinea Pigs Who Refused to Use Their Ramp ~ A problem Solved!

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

Rachael had a problem, she has a two tier hutch but her little madams, Disney and Paris, decided that they didn’t like the ramp, even with much coaxing of favourite treats they still refused to venture into the bottom of their hutch.
Rachael obviously wanted her piggles to have more room to play and frolic so she asked for a tunnel to be made specifically to fit the ramp. Disney and Paris have a Snuggle-OO which they adore, so it was fingers crossed that they would be tempted by the fleecey tunnel…. I made a tunnel which was 32 inches long with 4 supporting arches and vecro sewn to the underside, I sent Rachael the sticky parts of the velco to attach to the ramp to keep it secure and in position whilst Disney and Paris travelled through.
I’m very pleased to say it has been a great success and Disney and Paris are now happily using their ramp and have lots more space to exercise, although it sounds as though they’re getting lots of exercise just running up and down the ramp!
