Hi All :)

I'm a new Cavy carer in Perth, WA. Was interested in hearing from other Aussies who have or are thinking of making C&C Cavy Cages.

You're welcome to visit my site: (broken link removed)

I've only got a C&C Cavy Cage in the making so far (Plans are on the site!) but hopefully soon will have pics of the real thing :D

thx...

Shell the Human, Cailin the Cavy, Chet the Cavy, & Dylan the Dog :)

AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIe!

HELLO :) :) :)

I'm from Sydney and just found this site a couple of days ago. I'm thinking of getting cavies soon! I want to build a c&c cage and going out to bunnings to see if they have the cubes.

I found a good aquarium set up on ebay that someone is selling here in Sydney. It's going cheap and will save me enough money to get cavies as well :) . I love animals but find I have no PETS!! This has to change ;) .

I'll keep you posted on how it goes!

Re: :(

Hi Crazy :D

Good to hear from you! Please don't get an aquarium for your piggies to be! They dont have enough air circulation & unless you clean every day it can be detrimental to their health!

Mine are only babies & I'm just using a converted bird cage for the moment (until I move & can make them a C&C cage).

Hmm... I havn't found anywhere that sells grids yet either :S But that's not surprising as I'm in a little country town! When I'm actually in Perth in a couple weeks I'm going to go hunting for them :)

I have been looking on the net too & if I can't find any anywhere I'll just order some in! There's got to be somewhere that has them or can order some in! I'll let you know how I go :) Good luck!

I've just scanned some pics of my babies & posted them on my site... (broken link removed) :D If anyone is interested in seeing my little darlings :D

Shell, Cailin, Chet, & Dylan :)

Not in Australia! Indoor piggies are the exception here... everyone I know are amazed to hear that my pigs are inside with me.

Hey shell where abouts in perth do you get c&c i cant find it anywhere

Hi Louis :) I made mine like 18mths ago so I'm not sure where you would get it now. the coroplast was real easy to find... just look up "sign shop" & you will find a few that sell coroplast :)

The cubes are the hard part. I got mine from 2 bunnings stores & they said they were old stock from BBC hardware stock before they took over & they were just selling them off. So sorry I ant help you there :(

In Australia, Coroplast is called Cornflute also.

Big W stocks the grids' and it's alot cheaper than the bunning's one's.
Bunnings= 5 grids for $8.00
Big W = 16 or 17 (I forget) for $11.00 apx.
