How to keep my piggies from burrowing under their fleece? I’m so frustrated :(

So my girls have always loved to burrow, and that is why I have always kept a smaller fleece blanket in the cage on top of the one I use for bedding. However, they have recently discovered a love for burrowing under the main fleece I use for bedding and I cannot get them to stop! I even have extra blankets in there for them to burrow under but of course they prefer the one that they are not supposed to go under.

Is there any thing I could do to stop this? This makes the cage so much messier than usual and any tips will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all!

Maybe put some bricks in there cage / heavy guinea pig toys.

Maybe you could try giving them other entertainment like socks full of hay, or cardboard tubes.

Scotchie is my burrower, and I have a tile used to keep them cool to cover her favorite entrance, and I also use huts to prevent unwanted burrowing. The final thing that I would suggest is find a way to tuck the fleece under something, to prevent burrowing.

I’m not sure what your fleece liner looks like, but mine goes up over the sides of the coroplast and I keep it secured with binder clips. Pigs can’t burrow in it then!

Many people make their fleece liners go up and wrap around the sides of the coroplast and secure it, usually with binder clips.
