    I love your setup! I'm looking to do a 2x5 with a party patio. I like how you have higher walls so that the patio can be raised a bit more. I'd like to do that but I want to be able to cover my cage so I think I'll have to settle for having the patio a bit lower.

    Thank you! I'm really satisfied with the design and quality of the piggy party patio, so I definitely would recommend you get one! I love how the ramp incline is not so steep. What I ended up doing was using the grids that acted as my cover to create the higher walls.

    How do you keep the fleece clean and the pee smell managed? Anything under the fleece? I am just about to make my C&C cage but not sure how to manage the fleece and cleaning.

    You need an absorbent layer under the fleece, the fleece just wicks liquid through to keep the surface dry. Most people use uhaul moving pads or wood pellets.

    I have a layer of cardboard topped with a layer of two towels underneath the fleece in my cage. One thing I would suggest is to learn what spots your pigs like to soil the most. For my girls, it's underneath the loft, one of the most difficult places to clean/sweep during the week. I've recently placed their Cavy Café filled with paper pellet bedding and a layer of towels to act as blankets in that area. So far so good!

    Either I've been in a building kind of mood lately or I'm just really indecisive (I only thought I was done adding things to "Cavy Kingdom"), but this happened last night! I purchased a 2x3 coroplast base from GPCS recently and made the expansion yesterday. My girls' cage is now a 2x7 "L" shaped corner cage.

    Cutting the coroplast gave me so much anxiety, but in the end I think it turned out great and the girls are loving it!

    We currently have a 2x3.5 with a 1x3.5 loft. I've been trying to figure out if there's a spot in the main part of our house where I could put in something slightly bigger, but this works for now. I made it so both the loft and main area have the front swing open for easy cleaning. I put the ramp on the exterior to give them more running room and to also make it easier to clean. To solve the size issue for now I cut an opening in one of the grids and have a removable ramp that they can use to get to the floor for floor time and extra running room. I have a second grid that we attach to the inside to cover the opening when the ramp and playpen aren't in place. ( I just realized I put the bottom coro in backwards, usually it's flush with the opening for the ramp).

    Keiralh, where did you find that fleece? That would have been perfect for Cinco de Mayo!

    My most recent cage revision. I expanded the 1x3.5 loft to a 2x3.5, so now it's a stacked 2x3.5 with an external ramp.Click image for larger version.

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    I need to take a few more since we did this late at night, but Sunday is deep clean day and we had some new toys to add to the cage. I've kept up a garden theme with the girls so far, and I got these cute stickers + the windows from the cage store and added those in. I really want to get the cavy bistro next to go under their loft and hopefully help with some of the cleanup.

    Right now the cage is a 2x5 with a 2x2 loft. I really love the new windows, the girls seem to like them, too. I ordered a few things that should be here this week and will update then with some better photos. ^^

    Featuring the lettuce line and snacks I made to make up for getting home so late to deep clean the cage. I don't know why I didn't get a better photo of the loft, will have to add one. ): It's just a small fleece forest with some chew toys and the hidey + puff ball.

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    Hello Bruce,
    I am new to this forum and I came across your c and c cage as I was browsing the internet for ways to expand my cage. Right now I have a 6 grid by 3 grid cage set up but I have been wanting to add a second level on the same idea as yours. Anyways, my question is, What are those black bars that you use to support the upper level of your cage? I have tried to create my second level once already but it bowed too much in the middle and I have been trying to figure out what to use!

    Thank you,
    Anthony

    @Bruceb hello I am new to this website and I came across your cage. It looks awesome! I was wondering what those black bars are that you have supporting the supper level?
