    C&C Materials (Spain)

    I'm looking for material to do my own C&C cage.

    I already found the coroplast and the fleece, but I still couldn't find the grids and connection :/ I looked it up in Amazon and similar sites, but they either have none or an already done storage set which includes more grids than I need and it's a bit expensive...
    Do you know anywhere I can find this materials easily?

    Thank you.

    There's a searchable database over at Guinea Pig Zone, and there are some international entries in it, I believe. You might try there.

    Closet shelving also makes a great cage material, and it's available nearly everywhere. Rubbermaid distributes it to many countries.

    I searched for it, but couldn't find anything near ... Nearest one was in Germany

    And I would go with anything as long as it's big, but I'm moving to a rented flat and can't take something that big with me. C&C cages are different because I can always undo it so that I can transport them if it's needed.

    How about a bookcase? Many people have transformed Ikea bookcase into cages.
    You can line the bottom with coroplast.

    Edit to add:
    If I use that type of cage, I would take out all the shelves. They are full of glue and toxins, I won't let my pigs nibble on them.

    See this gallery for other ideas.

    You can also use plexiglass.

    I thought of making a cage out of only coroplast, but I wanted to make it even more secure.

    And as I said in the other post, I would love something similar to C&C because I DO need the cage to be as handy as possible since I might have to move it someday to a new home and I can undo C&C cages while I can't really do that with any other variety... I have to be able to easily take it into a bus or a car, so not something too big in that case.

    Do you have dog playpen there? Something like this. You just need to make sure the space between the bars are less than 1.5 inches wide.

    I've also seen a cage made out of cookie rack, zip tied together.

    Oh, yeah, we got some of those in general online pet-shops here. Do you think that will really work? I will look for a small wide.
    But I will have to see if that actually fits nice in the room.

    I never thought of using a playpen as a cage for piggies Thank you!

    You're welcome! I'd love to see pics when you're done building the cage.

    I already found a place where they sell cubes!! And it's not really expensive.

    The site is http://lapraderaonline.com and they sell 16 pannels + 12 connector for 33€. They also have 3 different fleece patterns.

    Hope this helps more Spanish people like me
