Welcome to the Guinea Pig Cages Community. Before you post your first post, there are some things you should familiarize yourself with.

We want you to get the maximum enjoyment and value from our forum. Proper posting is a firm requirement here and helps us keep a high standard of readability. We require posters to use proper capitalization, punctuation and avoid chat speak. We ask this in part because this is an International forum and we have many members that do not use English as a first language. Improper writing can be difficult for them to read. We also ask that you use smilies/emoticons with great restraint.

First is a set of links so you know the rules of the forum.
