Hi folks we just finished our C&C Cage its a 2 level with 1 level of cubes under it for a base.

We have a few questions.
But first let me link to our piggy cage pics and piggy pics

Guinea Pigs!!!!! - a set on Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157604105416434/)

We have multiple levels of towels with fleece over them.
Strangly enough the piggys seem to love laying in the area's with carefresh and hay... Sigh... :) So where looking for best practices for lining the cage, quick cleanups (we got a dust buster for spot cleaning poo's) and how to get them to actually go upstairs. Feel free to ask questions, become inspired, give suggestions or whatever.

Well one method of getting them to go to the top level would be to put some hay or veggies up their, but where they can see it. Then they will want the food and cautiously climb the ramp. This is what I did with my pig and he got used to it eventually. But dont just put all the food up there and leave them, you need to make sure they are eating so just try this for several minutes then if they dont go up put the food on the main level, and try again tomorrow. Good luck.

The piggies are now running up and down the stairs!!!! WOOHOOO...

All it took was one figuring it out and the other one followed. HA!

Still trying to figure this fleece thing out, the cage gets messy from hay gotta figure that part out too...
