Many people use towels and other fabrics as bedding for their pigs.
These products are desiged to be washed in the same way. And the
tunnels are stretchy enough that a pig can turn around and leave if
another follows it in. I am currently working on extra wide tunnels
to accomodate multiple pigs--but i have seen one of my pigs chase
another into the tunnel and they find their ways out.
I do understand your concerns, though. >> Stay informed about: Hand-Knit/Crochet Custom Guinea Pig Accessories
