My Guinea pigs won’t stop chewing on their coroplast and I am getting really fed up. I’ve seen some pictures of people who have no coroplast in their cages, just grids put on top of 2 or 3 blanket/fleece layers. Is this a good or bad idea?
I have a wood frame built from a sheet of plywood with 2x2s around the edges. I covered the whole thing with tyvek fabric, which is from a waterproof mattress cover. I put an absorbent pad down, then a sheet of fleece. The cage goes on top of the fleece and inside the frame of the base. Nothing to chew, and it’s very sturdy.
You can kind of see how this looks at the corner of the cage.
