View Full Version : Swimming Pool Cage (?)

Ok.. So from July 5-14 we are going on vacation and leaving the pigs (Daphne, Delilah, Divinci and Do), rats (Jasper and Jynx), and dog (Jypsy) at a boarding place.

The rats get a small rolling cage that I bought just for this. Their FN cage is way too heavy and huge to move.

Jypsy is getting her own kennel.

The pigs are a problem. The room I booked is 4ft x 8ft. There is no way I can transport their main cage there. I mean.. I could.. but it really wouldn't even fit in the room. Its huge and heavy and would be way too complicated.

I did find this swimming pool cage:

Its 48in in diameter. I believe that means its almost 13sqft. Do you think this would be alright for 4 pigs for 9 days?

If not.. I might be able to transport the bottom part of the cage (coro) which is about 16sqft.

If they get on very well, it would be an ok solution for a temporary thing.

That should be fine temporarily but you may have some trouble with them jumping out unless you put something around the sides.

The cage seems fine. But nine days is a long time; are you going to have anyone check up on them and their food/water while you're gone?

Yes, all the animals are going to a boarding facility. The pigs and rats are in a completly sectioned off and sound proof room. That way all the dogs in the facility wont bother them.
