| Athena and Vicky's home base, with hay and water|
Willow and Pippin's home base; the current home base setup
The original home base came about as a shallow cardboard box, a well worn towel and was situated under an old hot-water radiator. It was a perfect place to hide out, and the young pigs I had loved to spend their time under there while they weren't off exploring the kitchen, the laundry room and the family room. There were accidents if they managed to get under the couch and hide there for any length of time, but otherwise, I let them roam a large portion of the house without worries. Even after we moved to a new house, and home base wasn't nearly as warm and cozy, Eclair and Teddi still knew to stick with that.
