    Picture one (TOP LEFT) - Bottom of the cage has five 2x4s, currently two are being used for two male pairs...the top currently has one 2x4, one 2x3 and one 2x5, housing two female pairs and one female herd of four.
    Picture two (TOP RIGHT) - Bottom has two 2x3s, housing a single boy in each cage...Top has two 2x3s, housing one female pair in one and a single girl in the other.
    Picture three (BOTTOM LEFT) - Of the rescue room. Note; we currently have 20 guineas out at foster homes, and a few in quarantine in another room.

    Picture four (BOTTOM RIGHT) - Top of the cage is a 2x12.5 which houses my herd 6 girls and one de-sexed boy. Bottom will be a 2x7 cage to house Darla, Dede & Delta (LWs) and my de-sexed boy Ron.

    right, but one grid isn't one foot, it's about 14 inches so 3 x 4 grids is about 16 and a third square feet

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    Ok, so I still need to make a lid, because the first tryout was a disaster and my new hay rack broke, so I'm waiting for a replacement/refund.

    Also any ideas on anything I could do to make this better, be much appreciated!

    The Colonel's cage is finally done! Well, done enough for living in. I'll be tweaking it for awhile. 3x3.5' with a 16"x3.5' loft. Click image for larger version.

    We're not sure how we feel about the ramp setup. I also still need to make a real ramp and get Velcro or command hooks for attaching things to the walls. He went from a store cage to this so he's pretty happy! I'm open to more ideas!

    Home depot and closet maid shelving. You want 16" with the lip. have them cut it to be about 1 1/2 inches longer then your cage. You will need two pieces and depending on the size of your cage one 16ft may work. Its heavy duty and the cats will not knock through it. you will set each piece on the cage so the lip covers over the edge. Just zip tie the two sides together, to make a flip top lid.

    Um, it's some kind of crazy automotive type track stuff my husband found. I have no idea what it's called.

    It's called extruded aluminum and it's used in factories (like where I work).

    Roughly 3x3 1/2. I don't have any trouble reaching but the front panel does slide out of the track for cleaning so I could pull it if I couldn't reach.

    Hubs says it's Bosch T Tube (?) on the frame. At least I think that's what he said...

    I have decided that I for sure hate the ramp system so I'm definitely gonna come up with some other way to do it. Ideas?
