No pigtures this time, but Squeakers and Blaster got in a proper fight yesterday afternoon, with hair being ripped out and everything. I put up the puppy gate and went out with my friends for a few hours to let them cool down, but when I came back, I didn't take the gate down for half an hour before I was putting it back up.
The puppy gate's been up since then-- both have their own food, water, hidey house, chew toy, hay, and veggies-- but it's probably time for me to pursue advice from the more experienced owners: do I need to invest in bigger/separate cages for them? Previous pigtures should give an idea of the size of their current cage, it's a 42" diameter octagon (presently split via puppy gate).
As well, is there a good way to give them some outside time, given that I live in a second-floor apartment in a complex with dogs and cats around? I open the shades during the day so they can get some sunlight, and open the windows for fresh air in the evenings now that it's finally cooling down, and buy them dandelions and pet-grass, but I think they'd definitely be happier to get some proper outdoor time.
Thanks in advance for all your help!
