After what turned out to be spring cleaning, I got Mr Bubbles and Scruffy in their new spot and both of them in the new, much bigger cages. Moved Sammy and Dean into their new cage too. It took a lot more rearranging than I thought, which led to the spring cleaning. I never realized how much hay and bedding gets on the floor! I had to get some lumber and build the stand so I could stack them.

It actually worked out perfectly with Mr Bubbles on the bottom and Scruffy on the top. Scruffy loves to sit up and survey the room while Mr Bubbles prefers a little more privacy. It's funny because out of the 4 guinea pigs, Scruffy is the only one who can leap onto the built in platform. The other 3 are too fat to jump up. I'm going to have to make ramps for the others LOL! They all love the shelter provided by the under part of the platform. I should have done this long ago.

Extra long grass means a good place to hide and lots to eat! This is what makes Mr Bubbles and Scruffy happier than anything else I do for them.

That is a lot of grass to mow! They had better get to work :-)

I have to cut it this week. What a waste of good guinea pig food. 😋

Yes, but my wife cut me off at just the 4 of them.

Nail trim and check up today for Mr Bubbles and Scruffy. Both are doing very well! Mr Bubbles is down to 2.88 lbs. Perfect! He can jump on top of his house again and he can reach back to clean himself again. His hind end looks clean and healthy. His oil gland is clear too. Overall, he couldn't be better.

Scruffy is 1.92 lbs. Healthy weight, but an ounce or two wouldn't hurt. His teeth are good from what they could tell. That was starting to be a concern when he was sick with his bowel infection, but he's chewed them down nicely on his own. They couldn't tell about his molars, but his front teeth are good. When the front ones are good, it's usually an indication that the molars are too. Especially since he's not showing any signs of problems, such as slobbering or inability to chew and eat.

Both hearts and lungs are clear and normal. Eyes and ears too. Urine and droppings normal too. A pair of happy and healthy guys. The larger cages and outdoor activities have a lot to do with their weights being healthy.
