This is LuLu, in her cylinder. I recycled an oatmeal canister for my guinea pig because they like to go into and hide in little hidey holes. I have seen them at pet stores and they are just cardboard cylinders. I go through four or five of these every week.

So, do give them beets in moderation as well as the beet tops.
