What the Hay?

The weekly hay progress
Anyone who has guinea pigs can tell you that hay gets everywhere.  I've found strands of hay in almost every corner of my home at some time or another.  I've read several discussions on the best vacuum to deal with it.  I've also seen some amusing stories of the weirdest place hay has turned up.

Cannoli and Boadicea's hay is kept in a box (enclosed with flaps) under the cage.  And no matter how careful I am handling it, I always manage to sprinkle a few blades onto the floor.  I can tell what day of the week it is by the amount of hay that surrounds their cage.  I vacuum on Monday and the floor is spotless for all of 10 minutes.  By the weekend, after I clean the cage, it looks like I purposely dumped the hay on the floor.  Ugh!  Out comes the vacuum, and I start the whole process again.

So, piggy people - can you tell what day of the week by the hay on your floor?

  1. Oh it drives me nuts! Even those that are outside, their hay still manages to find its way in - usually caught in the dogs tail or the cats were playing with it :-/


I enjoy reading your comments and I strive to reply by email (if you're not set to no-reply).
