Warm Winters

Stay warm in the winter weather.

 Use your common sense and think about how the weather will affect your pets. They are your responsibility and completely dependent on you. You must take action to ensure they are warm, clean, and dry, always.

Duvets/blankets can be draped over a hutch at night. A blanket permanently over half of the hutch, covering the bedroom area opening door helps to keep drafts out. Think about ‘making a bed’ in the hutch bedroom for your piggies – an upside down box with fleece or hay in, that they can sleep under, You can tuck them up snugly to keep them warm and comfy.

Keeping your piggies dry is most important. Damp is bad for piggies, damp 'and' cold is dreadful.
