harley2262 Posted February 28 #1 Share Posted February 28 i've been noticing this for a little while, and it's been making me increasingly confused. for a tad bit of context, i have two guinea pigs, who are in a cage in my bedroom, as well as two gerbils, who are in a cage in the hallway by the front foor of my flat. i don't quite have the best memory but i want to say the first instance of this happening went down about?? a month or two ago maybe (give or take)?? i was hanging out with my boyfriend in my room and was topping up the hay in the guinea pig cage when i noticed a sort of clump of hard stuff? at the time i thought it was maybe a clump of hard poop or something and just threw it away with a bit of embarrassment thinking ''wow am i really that bad at cleaning the cages out?''. i thought it was a bit weird but chocked it down to me just needing to clean the guys out so i didn't take a picture or anything, and forgot about it the next day. a few days later, the same thing happened again- another weird hard clump in the guinea pig cage. this time i was a bit more confused but again, didn't think anything of it and didn't take a picture, i just threw it away and continued on with my day, but now, however long after, it's happened again- this time with me finding a hard clump in my gerbil tank- and now i know for sure that something weird is going on because there is no way those tiny little things can clump up that much poo in that short amount of time- there's just no way. i don't give my animals any sort of chews or anything that have rocks or similar materials in them, as not only does it make alot of noise, but also my animals generally just aren't interested in them. i do collect rocks sometimes as i'm quite the magpie, but i've never dropped any into their cages or anything like that, and none of them are left close enough to the cages to just, fall in or anything, so i really have no clue where these rocks are coming from! initially i threw the rock i found in the gerbil cage away but then i realised i should probably not do that and retrieved it, so i do have pictures this time! so... yeah it's definitely just?? a random rock. at this point im just very confused as A) where these mystery rocks are coming from B] why are they popping up and C) why specifically in my animal cages? i haven't found anywhere elsewhere, only in with my guinea pigs and now my gerbils! if anyone has any insight please do share so we can try to get to the bottom of it! 5 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
