    Small cage

    Hey everyone!
    I've had my piggies for a few months now. As some might've already read, i got them from an old friend who got tired of them. I got everything for free: cage, piggies, bedding and food she still had, etc. It's a small pet store cage and i don't like it. I want them to have more room to walk around and play. A lot of you on this site have C&C cages. I'd love to have one of those, but i live in the Netherlands and i haven't found one that ships to my country for a normal price. Basically, i can't buy C&C and was wondering if there are any alternatives?

    Thanks!

    Wow! Those all look great. I'll try to find something that could work at my local gardening shop. I guess i'll have to get creative. Your cage is very nice by the way

    You may want to have a look at www.caviadraadkubus.nl

    I cannot tell you anything about their service or anything, but it is an easy way to get a proper C&C cage.

    As for a cheaper option, depending on the price of your 'polycarbonaat kanaalplaat', you can also use a run instead of cubes. I got my run from zooplus (sometimes getting stuff from the German Zooplus is cheaper than getting it from the Dutch site).

    This is the run I use (connected two sets)

    http://www.zooplus.de/shop/nager_kle.../6eckig/228497

    if you take a look at the customer pictures of this run you will see my cage. (It is the one with three piggies, a messy room and very colourful fleece)

    I noticed some of the grids shown in the top link have 8 spaces and some have 9. The 8 space ones are unsafe so only use the ones that have 9 spaces across.
