Like so many others, we always want to have the best possible cage with what resources we have, lol. The last cage was great but very hard to clean and hard to pull my girls out when they ran into most corners. This is much more open because the ramps aren't in the middle of the cage and I can see the pigs (no matter where they are) from my bed! I have a few more things to throw in but I did go ahead and make the larger hay rack, add the couch (bought it at ROSS, yay!), and have 2 leopard print dishes to match my girl's new couch, hehe. Oh and I bought an extra set of fleece so that the girls always have clean flooring! (Also bought at Ross, $7 for a 60x50 fleece blanket)
