Our Guinea Pig’s Oxbow Timothy Mat From Chewy.com

Oxbow Timothy Mat

I received an Oxbow Timothy Mat from Chewy.com in exchange for my honest review.

My daughter got a guinea pig for Christmas last year, and she loves getting goodies for her piggy (Nutemg).  She was very excited to come home from school to find that she had received an Oxbow Timothy Mat from Chewy.com.  This is a neat product, and something different from other products we have tried for our small animals.  It is a woven mat that comes in two sizes, and is made entirely of Timothy Hay.  It is edible but can be used for other purposes as well.

We unwrapped the mat, and my daughter set it in her room while she went to get her guinea pig out of the cage.  While she was off getting Nutmeg, the cat wasted no time checking out the mat!  No worries, we were able to switch off so the cat left and the guinea pig could enjoy the mat.

What we like about this mat is that it is just hay.  No strings or wires or anything that could be of concern.  We have had other accessories or treats that use dyes or materials that we would rather not have.  It is nice to have a product that is completely healthy for our pets.

Nutmeg hangs out on the mat in my daughter’s room.  It gives her something to nibble and lounge on.


Nutmeg is a pretty big guinea pig, and the large mat is a nice size, with plenty of room.  She enjoys lounging on her mat!


This is a nice product, and it is nice to have something different from the usual treats.  Plus, it is all natural!

    My cat would have done the exact same thing, and probably resisted being removed from it too LOL. Chewy is very convenient for folks that can’t or aren’t able to get to a store easily.

    That sounds like a great mat. We have been in serious discussions about getting a guinea pig recently in our house, so if we do, I am getting one of these timothy mats.

    Nutmeg is adorable and I like the mat is made of hay only. Having no additives or chemicals is a huge plus as well. I always order my dog’s shampoo from Chewy. I can’t find the brand I love near me and Chewy is so convenient.

    This looks like a great mat. I have two cats who would probably love it. Heck, we also have a hamster, and he’d probably like it too!

    For everyone who has pets this mat sounds like the perfect gift for them. Having no wires or anything else to cause damage to them is wonderful.

    A friend of mine just got a guinea pig. This will be a fun gift to them as a sort of congratulations on a new pet kind of thing. Your animals are adorable.

    Sounds like a neat treat for a guinea pig. Nutmeg is so cute! I used to have a guinea pig as a kid and loved it!

    Oh I love this I wonder what my two pigs would think of this, I am always looking for new things to treat them to!

    I don’t have any pets but Chewy must be a great place. My neighbors buy things for their cats from there all the time.

    Nutmeg is such a cute guinea pig! This mat sounds like the perfect place for her to hang out and I’m sure she loves that it is edible.

    we dont have any pets but have considered getting a guinea pig for my daughter if the school goes well. I will have to keep this mat in mind as think its a plus that its made of hay and there are no additives or chemicals.

    What a cut mat for the guinea pig. My friend growing up had three guinea pigs and it was so much fun.

    I will have to share this post with my friend. She just got a guinea pig for her Son on the weekend. The Oxbow Timothy Mat will be perfect for his new enclosure.

    Oh this is such a great idea for our pets! I have never seen something like this. I bet a lot of people who have pets will benefit from hearing of this product!

    My daughter just asked me for a guinea pig last night! I think she’ll have to prove she can keep her room clean before we take that on!
