We have currently found out that my youngest piggie, Cocoa, has bumble foot. I am planning on building them a C&C cage, because i have been told that one reason she might have developed this is because there was not enough cage space. I have never built a C&C, so i dont have a clue where to get the material, or the fleece, or how to build them! please help me out soon, my piggie sounds like shes in pain!!! (don't worry she is being treated)

Google local shops that would sell the C+C parts. Building it is easy. I dont know about others but we used to zip ties, Fleece you can get at a fabric shop or walmart. With the fleece, wash it a few times before you use it. Also you will need a bottom of some sort, we used coraplast and cut it to fit inside the cage.

See the Main page of this site (tab above). It's got a ton of information on C&C cages.

You could always order one from this site's store. :)
Guinea Pig Cages Store

I agree, and ordering from the store is a very quick and easy way to go. It's a tad more expensive than doing it yourself, but then you have everything that you need right away. If cost is not an issue, go with the C&C from the cages store, and get as large as you have room for.

If cost is an issue, you could consider a Midwest cage. It's about $33 from Amazon for the regular one, and the one with cover looks to be $46 (no tax, free shipping). Here are links:

How many pigs do you have? Has a vet diagnosed the bumblefoot?
