    Finding a good cage?

    I have 2 guinea pigs and I have a cage thatís too small. I need help finding a cage that can be live outside. Any ideas for cages?

    I'm as concerned about the fact that you're planning on putting them outside as I am about the cage size. Guinea pigs are very susceptible to heat stroke, and can die at temperatures above the mid-eighties. There's also no way to protect them from stinging and biting insects, and sometimes larger animals can break into cages.

    Is there some reason you're not keeping them in the house?

    The last 4 guinea pigs Iíve had have been kept outside and they were fine as we bring them inside if itís to hot and give them ice packs and sometimes cucumber and other cold veggies and also because we live in an apartment and are unavailable to keep them inside.
