I am hoping to get a c&c 2x4 maybe this week! I have been thinking a lot about it and want to! Except I need to have my mom pay for coro which is $20! And then I will pay her back as soon as I sell Ginger's cage! Then I can pay all on my own! I want to get grids from Walmart, then if I still have enough some fleece bedding from Joann's, then get a piggie from a rescue,shelter, or Craigslist! But she said she doesn't know! When told her! She thinks that Ginger is fine in his pet store cage which we spent $60 on! And that I don't need another guinea pig! What now! I know what is right because this site has taught me! Thank goodness!:) I will post pic of pet store cage sorry it will be dark and sideways cause of posting with iPod! But u can still see the L,W,H.

I'd suggest showing your mom this website, if you haven't already. It helped you know what's right, so hopefully it will help convince your mother too. :)

Hey,
I have a handy tip! My mom is awful scared of small animals and using this method she let me have pigs!
I think you should tell your mom that it will be less work, and you will be HAPPIER. I'm sure most parents care alot about their child's happiness, right? A C&C cage means easier to clean, less work, and happier pigs! To convince for another piggy I'm not to sure, sorry!

I asked her if I can show her something on my iPad (which is the reasons why I should get the c&c and another piggie and everything) and she said if its anything to do with that guinea pig I don't want to! And I said it nicely and everything and she yelled at me!:( she just doesn't want my piggie healthy and happy I guess! What now?

The Walmart grids have holes that are too big, do you have a Kmart or bedbath and beyond?

The walmart grids are safe. But not all walmarts carry the grids we use. I don't like recommending Kmart because sometimes they'll have the unsafe grids and other times they'll have the safe grids. They're so iffy

I purchased my grids directly from Bed Bath & Beyond. You can join their club and get a free 20% coupon to use on your grids.

Oh no! I'm sorry. :( Maybe you should give her a little space? Wait a couple of days or so and maybe she'll warm up to the idea. But as said above, giving reasons as to why a C&C cage would benefit not only the pig but you as well would be a good idea. I hope things work out for you!

I would try talking to her alone, but also, if your mom checks her email often, just try sending her a nice well thought out email with all of the information you want to share with her. She will probably be compelled to open it, and once she reads it will most likely come to you to talk about it.

Yeah I could do that and then tell her to check her email!:)
