    Question Question about gallery photos: Permission for pet store 7.8 sq ft cage?

    Hello there! I was reading some of the forum rules the other day and noticed that, in the "Gallery Photo Rules" thread, the following rule was mentioned:

    "No commercial or pet store cages! Under any circumstances. If you have some great purchased cage that meets our cage requirements, please post about it in the forums and get permission to post a photo of it first."
    The cage my boars are currently being housed in is theAll Living Things® Guinea Pig Penthouse, purchased at my local PetSmart. Its dimensions are 47"L x 24"W x 14"H, and its horizontal base is 7.83 sq ft. By hand-measuring, the cage bars are 1" apart. There are no ramps or second floors. (Their hideys are placed towards the center of the cage so they at least have an outer loop to run around in.)

    Although I am actively in the process of building a larger C&C cage, many of my best pet pig photos I'd like to share are taken within their 7.8 sq ft cage. Because I bought their cage at a pet store, I would like to ask permission first before sharing any photos involving their cage. Would their 7.8 sq ft cage be allowed in any galleries I post in? Thank you!

    I don't know the answer to this. I'll ask.

    If it's just to post pics of your pigs and not the cage, per se, it's okay. We measure the inner dimensions, not the outer for true usability, so it's not really 7.8, but you can post it. Thanks.

    Thank you very much, CavySpirit! Yes, the pigs would be the main focus in any pictures involving their pet store cage. I also appreciate you mentioning that the inner dimensions are ultimately what counts. That really puts into perspective just how small some pet store cages are (including this bare-minimum sized one), since I knew how small they were based on their listed (outer) measurements, but I didn't even account for how they'd have even less space available for use than that. From now on, I'll be sure to measure the interior space and use that for calculating the square footage. Thanks!
