    My new cage!

    I decided I would get another section to my guinea pig habitat. It is from amazon. Now my piggys have 24 square feet to roam in. Right now I have Amy blocked off since she is sick and will soon be able to roam the whole thing freely with Bella and Chloe and as you all know Darwin hasn't been neutered yet, but all 4 piggys will soon be in this whole cage together! I have taken out the dividers like it was suggested and they and I love it much more. Thank You guys! This site is the reason I wanted a bigger cage in the 1st place. Space is a big deal!

    Amy was making her weird breathing or squeaking sound then coughed after I took the picture of her side of the cage. She has only been on the medication since monday, so I hope she stops soon. I haven't her anyone cough or sneeze since monday until just now when Amy coughed.

    I wish I had a room I could dedicate to my pigs like that!
    Since I still live with my parents...that is not going to happen.

    Re: My new cage!

    I know, right? I'm sorry, as soon as I get some extra money I'm gonna do it! I am totally sick of clipping the cage doors on and the coroplast needs to be replaced they just chewed the plop out of it... Its sharp, its in many pieces from all the redos. There is white duct tape everywhere holding it together. And the boys LOVE eating the darn duct tape....Grrr. I think I am going to remove the storage grids on the bottom (they are peeving me off I can't fit everything in there that I have for them and what I do put in there I can't get to....) and get some plexiglass and put that on the inside of my cage to have it more open so I don't have to have grid doors that swing and rattle when they run!



    Here's my cage in case you are not familiar. The cage is in the middle of the wall away from the AC and door.... Just FYI.

    So remove the bottom storage squares. I was thinking about putting 1 row of grids along the top cage in the back for storage of light things. I was also thinking of expanding both levels by one cube longer and having 2 cubes going vertically up from the bottom cage to the top instead of that wood post. Then of course the new coroplast and there would be no coroplast edge on the front. There would be a more sturdy plexiglass piece that would be higher for their protection. And I was going to put 2 shelves (like the ones I have at the very top of the picture) at the top of the cage to put the rest of their things. My living room is so cluttered with kid, cat and guinea pig stuff its nuts. I need to fix this. With my last cage...



    I just shoved everything underneath. It was a good system (although not visually appealing) but there seems to be a lot less drama between the 2 feuding piggies in opposing herds. Wendall and Sweety Pie are Arch enemies. First introduction Wendall gouged sweety pie in the butt pretty good he had to have stitches. Then after that was healed, post buddy bath and such Sweety pie did a flying death lunge at Wendall and tore a hole in his eye lid. There was so much blood I thought Wendall lost his eye. So I separated everyone and eventually found the perfect combination of guinea pigs. But there was still tension. Wendall and Sweety pie broke their teeth twice nawing on the bars to get to the other. They picked on their cagemates more than they do now. So I guess this works out well that they cannot see each other. Anyways... Sorry if I took over your thread Frill.... I love cage talk. Your guinea pigs are going to be so happy when all is said and done!
