    Is this cage large enough for 2 guinea pigs?

    Hello, I was just wondering if this cage (link below) would be big enough for 2 female, 1 year old guinea pigs. I was reading the reviews and most said that you could fit 2 guinea pigs, but I feel like sometimes Petco shoppers don't know the correct size requirements. I just want to make sure so that these pigs can have the best lives possible. Thank you!

    My research says that that size is just over the minimum space for two but ive since be told since that its NOT big enough. Id say its a good place to start and plan on adding on maybe? I have this exact one for two females and plan on adding on.

    The cage just scrapes in at the absolute bare minimum suggested for a pair of sows (8 sq feet). We recommend a cage 10 square feet or larger for a pair of sows. It might not sound like that much of a difference, but it really does make a huge difference for an animal so small.

    Too small - Yes, but that's a great price for that cage. You can get two, qualify for free shipping and link them together. There are instructions somewhere on this site.

    Be sure to remove the dividers. The floor space requirements refer to the flat space they need to run around.

    Thank you all so much! If I do adopt those two guinea pigs, I will make sure to buy two of the cages
