It’s 10 o’clock you’re cosy in bed and soundly drifting off to sleep after counting
sheep piggies in your head. Then all of a sudden you hear the rustle and bustle of some very cheeky furries who’ve pottered their way up to the front of their cage.
Whether its chewing the bars, pottering around making lots of noise or having a party till early hours our piggies can really disrupt our sleep. Even though I’m sure they don’t mean it and don’t speak english there are reasons behind why your guinea pig is causing so much noise and here’s why :
I’m bored… really bored!
One reason why your beloved furrie ( whether guinea pig or hamster) maybe making a racket is because they’re bored! If they’ve been inactive during the day then give them more floor time, handling and create something stimulating for them to play with and do whilst you’re away or asleep.
My belly needs some munchies 🙂
Generally the reason why your little one is also making so much noise is because they’re hungry! Fill up the food bowl, make them a snack and pop out plenty of hay for them to chow down on whilst you snooze.
It’s a habit!
Some guinea pigs and hamsters even get the itch and just find that being disruptive at night and chewing the bars is a pretty cool habit! Habits can be hard to break but if you work on the following tips on solving your pets night-time nibbles then it might help you get a sound night’s sleep!
