Hi, I am from New Zealand and I REALLY want a C&C cage. Can someone help me and tell me where to get them from here? I have looked in EVERY Pet-Shop but no luck :( If you are a Kiwi guinea pig owner and you have a C&C cage, PLEASE tell me where you got it from and WHERE your from because it wont be helpful if your in Auckland because im in Tauranga. So they would probably have different shops :) PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE let me know ASAP!!!!!!

Welcome! I'm from NZ too.
I have brought a lot of my girds off TradeMe as second hand ones, they are all much better then nothing. I've manged to make a 4x4 + 2x2 C&C cage for my three boys and a 2x4 + 1x4 loft for my girl.
You can't buy them from any shops here in NZ, I know it sucks.

There are the mesh versions of the grids for sale brand new on trademe but they are expensive:
2x Metal Mesh Cube (new) | Trade Me (http://www.trademe.co.nz/business-farming-industry/retail-hospitality/display-units-racks/shelves/auction-507278776.htm)

If you just keep an eye on trademe some will come up again.

I can't find any now, there was about 55 grids for sale for about $20 on a couple of weeks ago, Its just about timing it right.
The girds I've got are the normal grids what everyone else uses here.

Have you looked at wire wardrobe shelving in any local hardware stores. It is dearer than grids but cheaper than paying all that postage. They are really easy to make a cage from, you just need to get your measurements right before you buy cause you can't make changes as easily as you can with grids.
