Who cares! .... Who care if it is a half an inch smaller on each side.
If you failed to notice a lot of people care
Do you guys have nothing better to worry about than if a person has one guinea pig in a cage that is 6 sqare feet, or 8 sqare feet.
I have LOTS of better things to do then to keep explaining about size recommendations. I would think that someone who came to this site, and joined this forum would notice what this website is about. It's about building BIGGER
cages. The reasons and how-tos are spelled out clearly. If people aren't here to improve your cage and your pets' lives then I am at a loss as to someone's motive on this site.
Every pig here gets the best of care.
Wrong. Not every GP owner here provides the best of care. That is why this forum exists to encourage the owner to start providing the best of care.
The exact square footage means nothing!
You're right the exact sq footing doesn't mean much as long as it meets or exceedes the minimum recommended size.
Whether you use feet or grids means nothing.
It obviously does mean something or we wouldn't be discussing it would we? Those inches add up. Those inches turn a 2x3 foot cage (6 sq feet) into a 7.5 sq feet cage when you use cube measurements. Compare your GP's size to that extra sq foot and a half. It would be like you adding an extra room onto your house. Imagine what you could do with a whole extra room!
You arent better than them because you do it a differnt way.
No one said they were better. People just feel inferior when they don't do all they can and know it.
Nope, ain't gonna happen. Cage size is what this website/forum is all about.
