guinea pig cage accessories..

My piggy just got a new second hand cage with a top floor mezzanine thing and a plastic ball so she can run around the house, and a wheel. The guy we got the cage from said he used the cage for guinea pigs too...but I thought guinea pigs weren't allowed on wheels and in those clear plastic balls because they are not as flexible as hamsters.

was my guinea pig manual book wrong??

anyone has piggies that go on wheels?

Lettin the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin it back in.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't gonna happen anyway.

I've never heard of a gp in one of those balls or running around a wheel. Never. Please keep him off those things until you know for sure.

Never put a guinea pig in a ball or wheel.They are not built for it and could seriously injure themselves.
