    Question Materials

    I was wondering if anyone else who lives in Belgium knows where I can buy the materials needed to make a C&C cage?

    I just got my little Phoebe yesterday & want to give her enough room to grow & play in.

    It's going to be a standard 2x4 C&C cage. If I were able to get a hold of some more cubes, I'd probably include a loft. At the moment, cubes are no longer being sold here though. So, I'll have to wait.

    Yes, I'm also citronsoul on cavy compendium. I'm on a few forums, but I post the most on here & on CC.

    Re: Materials

    Hi Citronsoul,

    I adopted a guinea pig 2 weeks ago and I would like to make a C&C cage for her.
    Could you please tell me where I can find the materials in Belgium?

    Many thanks!

    Re: Materials

    Ororeke,

    Congratulations on your new addition!

    I got my materials from Blokker. Not all stores sell them, although most do use the cubes to display material. The cubes I used for my first C&C cage actually weren't on sale, but were cubes that the store could spare. A few years later I managed to find a Blokker that was also selling them (in Wijnegem shopping center).

    The coroplast came from a sign store. It's not known as coroplast in Belgium though, so try asking for "vikuprop" or "duoprop" instead.

    I had laugh when I saw this thread. Phoebe will be turning 5 this year, and since my original post she's grown to be biggest & chubbiest guinea pig of the herd. I haven't referred to her as "little" in a really, really long time.
