    Help! Please

    Hi,
    I've checked B&Q, i've checked homebase, i've checked poundstretcher, i've checked focus, i've checked index and argos, i unfortunatly don't have membership for costco and as i'm a student i can't get it.. i've tried makro, i've checked staples.. and now i'm pulling my hair out.
    My g.p is expecting babies in next couple of weeks so really need to have something to seperate her off from myother and enough space for them all when they are old enough. These c&c cages look absoloutley amazing but i just can't find any cubes anywhere!!
    Please please help.

    Hello,

    Not sure where you live but I am in UK. If you go onto Http://www.ebay.co.uk and type in cubes storage you will see a chap is selling them on there for £5 for 24 which is really good value an dshipping is only £6.00 not sure if this helps anyone.

    I havent received them yet but when I do i will let you know. I had heard a rumour that you could get them from poundstretcher but I rang their head office and they say they can no longer get them from the supplier. The only success I did have was Kleeneeze but they are £19.99 for 12 which giventhe size of the cage i want to build is too expensive. I am so pleased to have found them.

    Not as good value as suzannbc's tip, but if you're in East Anglia, QD stores sell them http://www.qdstores.co.uk/index.asp. Also, Robert May sell them http://www.robertmay.co.uk/cubes_systems.html (item number mgp100, £20 for 12 and £7.50 shipping so not the cheapest and I'd check the dimensions as these may be a little smaller that regular cubes).

    Also some kitchen shops sell flat cooling racks which can be put together with cable ties and do just a good a job, so that's worth considering if you don't get anywhere.

    Good luck.

    Yay! Cubes are so hard to find in the UK, it took me months of searching to find some at a reasonable price

    I tried several places, including Poundstretcher, but even the one in Hounslow who reportedly had them, said they'd never heard of them. The only place I could find them was in the Robert May catalogue. They call them a "Wire Mini Grid Panel System". They cost a bomb (£22 for 17 panels inc 20 connectors, extra connectors 30p each + £8 p&p + VAT = £35.25 total). They are the standard size and they do work - I made my C&C 2x4 from them. I couldn't find them on ebay when I searched - oh well, at least my piggies are happy even if my wallet isn't.

    My last option was robert may and I ordered their catalogue. Then somebody told me poundstretcher sold them, so I made my mum drive me there on the same day! =)

    Be sure to post pics of your cage. After all this effort, I'm sure it will look amazing

    Re: Help! Please

    I hope so..
    like you say, after all this effort for them i'll probably end up installing their own central heating. lifts to get them up and down, give them their own tv and maybe a merc for them to drive about in. what do you think?
    The trouble we go to for them huh... luckily they are so cute n adorable!!
    I'm just excited about thebabies now as well..

    Thanks again,

    I took to crates and bent them to a 2x3x2 and zip tied them together and then put carpet on it and zip tied it to the 2nd level.

    The silver cubes look really smart don't they... well all the cubes do. I can't believe how funky all these cages look.

    I'm addicted to guinea pigs now!! I can't get enough of them!!
