    My sweet husband helped me build this:



    Is there anything cuter than a piggie scurrying up the ramp?

    If I had "chewers" I would put thin wood around the table-legs or sisal. You are right, it is not good if they would eat the legs

    I would be more afraid about eating plastic furniture like "pigloos" etc. Thats why everything that is in the cage is off wood

    When you suddenly own your own apartment, of course piggies get bigger cage This is the cage I've been working on, just need to finish the sewing the fleece (gonna try making fleece flippers). The box with the tall sizes will be filled with wood shaving bedding.

    I found the "universal/flytte tęppe" blanket (seems to be decent alternative to Uhaul furnature pad) and the black edging in the local Bauhaus store. This size of cage used up two sets of those pet fences perfectly (when I added the two remaining panels at the end there at least, wanted to make a fleece forest ;D)

    Is that the past pen from Amazon? I don't think that would be big enough for the sides.... My girls can easily jump over it....

    Bought it from local petstore, was called a play run, the fence is 23cm tall and my piggies have not yet jumped over it (had it as long as I've had them, for floor time), they aren't big on jumping unless they know what they're jumping on (such as a platform I made which allowed them to reach the top floor, they jumped that proudly (18cm tall). At least thats how my piggies have been like

    Oh ok. There's a playpen in Amazon that's like that. Mine are big jumpers and climbers only if they hear a bag crinkle . Nice cage tho

    Had to 1 up Oliver since he found out he could get into the cage from the fish tank.
    I was doing all I could to avoid the lid because of the risk he has on breaking a toe. You couldn't be happy watching them from afar on your towers. *sigh*

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    So many cages!! I just finally got the stuff to finish my ramp tonight so I put their loft up ^.^ I AM SO EXCITED.

    They're having some floor time - albeit in a littler pen than their bed, but I think they like the change of scenery - while I wash all the beddings. I feel like I have to wash a lot to keep the smell down. I can't wait for flippers and I'm going to post pics as soon as it's all put back together tonight!

    I changed my set up! New (and improved) Hay rack, and switched the cage around a bit. Mine feels plain compared to these elaborate wonders, but my boys like it. Hopefully I'm going to expand to a 2x5 or 2x4 soon, as well as add a 1x5 or 1x4 loft.

    That looks so good! Just a wondering, do your piggies eat the cardboard on the hidey house? My boys tear things like that to pieces.

    They chew on it sometimes, but not really. They like "softer" cardboard, like a paper towel role or egg carton. They chew on the litter box sometimes too, but not really the big box! I think they like hiding/running through it too much :P

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    I finally found reasonable coro last weekend, so I was able to construct my first C&C!!! Here's my cage story thus far:

    This was the cage we brought him home in, knowing I'd buy a bigger one soon but not wanting to spend over 100 on hay, pellets, and a cage we got a 'starter kit

    50 bucks later and a whole bunch of measuring and zip-tying, he had his first C&C home. Poor buddy is stuck with a Rapunzel fleece until next pay day XD

    Continuation of his new C&C on the next post!!!

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    It's only a 2x3 but it does it's job! I have two old towels on the button and then the fleece on top and clipped to the coro.

    At first it felt pretty plain. Just his 'kitchen', hidey, and couch. The couch was secured to the corner with the grid top because he kept using the couch as a platform to try exploring the outsideof his cage.

    It's been a FRIGED winter here and even though we keep the house around 70F, my room still feels cold. I put blankets over the top for insulation and I used and old shirt with long sleeves and tied it to the top grid. he LOVES running under, and it flips up if I want to sneak a peak.

    Then I double gridded his couch corner because he kept sticking his cute little nose through the holes. And even though I checked the dimensions and the grids I bought are safe, you can never be too careful. Call me paranoid- haha!

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    Lastly, I still felt he didn't have enough 'cuddle options'. We are flirting with sub zero temps and I kept seeing all these cute plush-like pillows in everyones cages that I said what the heck, Chester should have a pillow too!

    I grabbed another t shirt I never wear and tied off the sleeves, made a few cuts, and filled them with hay (breakfast in bed anyone?). I tied the sleeves to the top grid closer to the coro wall and called it a day!

    Chester absolutely loves it! It satisfies his jumping needs (from the bed to the couch zoomies around the cage, back to the bed, then to the couch -continuation until he smells veggies!), he burrows in-between the wall and the bed and sleeps sooo good, lounges on the pillow, and snacks on fresh hay that hasn't been soiled or stomped on!

    Over all, I've very proud of his cage and it's helped so much with his health. I can't wait until the vet gives me the clear and I can rescue another boar.
