I must live in the worst part of the country ever, on top of the never ending snow we have had for the past two weeks, I cannot find cubes for my cage anywhere. This is crazy, I can't afford to pay the outragous shipping charges, but it seems like no place in MO carries these cubes anymore. Help!

Can you call around and see if a store can special order them? Or, if you have a Sam's Club or Costco or someplaace similar, they can proabably order them from the warehouse and you can pick them up at the store.

I have looked around and i can get them shipped to wal mart stores with no shipping, but it can take up to 15 days to get them and I need them sooner rather than later. I have to go to the city on Monday, so I was hoping someone on here would have seen them in the Kansas City area. If not i will just order them and sit and wait and be unhappy.

Most Wal-Marts around the Missouri/Arkansas border carry them. Depending on which part of Missouri you're from.

Yes. I live in central MO there isn'tanything there for here, I refuse to believe I am the only person around with a pig passion.

If all else fails wire storage shelving that you can get at any Lowes, HomeDepo and most Walmarts works really well. It's what I use for my cage.

If you buy it at a home improvement center they will cut it to size for you for free.

If you don't mind my asking, what size is your cage and howmuch did it cost? I am on a pretty slim budget.

I am lucky. I have a couple of building recycling centers near me and was able to pick up scraps of the shelving, more then enough to build my cage, for $5. New it will cost considerably more.

If you are looking to pinch pennies then you may want to build your sides out of Hardware cloth. Here is a thread where I was helping someone else with the same idea. My post about hardware cloth and links to pictures of it in use start at post 10 http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/about-cages/24237-piggy-habitat.html?

Okay after your pictures we are thinking of building that instead, the only question is do the piggies chew the wood?
