Is there one pay or just random viewing?

http://cavycages.com/cubes.htm Is a good place to start, read all the links on the sides. It will probably take a while but your piggie will thank you.

C&C stands for Cubes and Coroplast. These are what we make cages from. Cubes (metal grids) for the cage and Coroplast (corrogated plastic) for the inside tray. If you go to the top of the page and click on photo galleries, there are thousands of pictures of C&C cages there. For 1-2 (pigs should be kept in pairs or more) you need at least a 2 grid by 3 grid cage and a 2 grid by 4 grid cage if you can (boars-boy cavies- need more room as they are territorial. Most grids are 14", some are slightly larger at 14.5" or 15".

I suggest you build a 2x4 c&c cage and get your pig a same sex buddy. They are very social creatures and love having companions.
