I'm currently looking for Rabbit cages and noticed there is a Midwest cage kind of like the Midwest Guinea Pig cage, and saw there is California Proposition 65 warning on it. This is on walmart.com. So I went to check on the Midwest Guinea Pig Cage and it has one as well. I have never seen this before for this cage and I know us guinea pig owners are quite protective about them. Thoughts? I don't believe the actual Midwest website has the warning. Just saw it on Walmart.
Regarding the barrier, I'm not saying all the time. Also, my pig came to me in an aquarium, with a wheel, and a dried up strawberry. He was crossing over into an abusive situation if I had not taken him, so I think I've done quite a lot for him. I also just lost my girl pig, who he absolutely loved and within a week he got sick, so I think if the new pig is driving him a little bit nuts, he will be okay with taking a break considering he is much older and wasn't feeling well. He got sick because of the stress of losing her. My point is, you have to look at the whole picture. Not all pigs are made equal and not all come from the same backgrounds. The entire world of guinea pigs have come so far. My pig has had a great animal life and I cringe to think what would have happened to him if it weren't for me. I know my animal and a little time for him to sleep with some peace might not hurt him.
