I now only have to get a stand made to get it off the floor.
 
I think the cages will always change LOL I never seem to be content with it. Always changing it up, but my Gps seem to love it when there is a new change. I can't wait until I buy a house and have a free range area for them. I'm hoping to score a finished basement area or walout basement with lots of light...I just can't seem to ever be content with it. Lovely pillow!
 
Yea I know it will always change but really like the way it is now. I guess i have got to start making lots of things to change out so they dont get bored. lol
 
i love your new cage set-up - the colors are so bright and cheerful and it looks like there's lots of interesting places and things for your pigs. :D how many do you have and how old are they? that fluffy tunnel caught my eye. did you make it, or buy it? if you did make it - can you share how? and if you hang on, i'll think up about 20 more questions. . .:crazy:
 
That's something I like about Guinea Pigs. I'm ADD and get bored- FAST! So I forsee (don't have guinea pigs yet :( ) a lot of changes in my future, but I'll take pictures every time just so that I can show them off. :)

I have a dog who doesn't play with toys. The only thing I can buy for him is dog food and dog treats- BORing! :D

@jacqueline Dang! You ask a lot of questions! Are you part guinea pig? :p
 
@CritterLuvva - yes, ma'm -i have a driver's license and a mortgage, but i never grew out of the 2 year old "Why" "How come" stage -why do you ask??!! :D
 
I don't think I will ever be 100 percent happy with my cage set up only because I get tired of it easily and want a change. Lizzie and Marie have probably wondered why some of their weekly clean outs involved construction haha. Right now my set up is very simple I have a 2x5 cage and I have a space in the front where I took out 3 of the grids so that it's just coroplast except for the 2 front corners and then the rest has grids. As for in the cage I have piggy bedspreads for the main bedding ( currently a leopard print ) and in their little kitchen area I use paper towels with oxbow eco straw litter on top. I connected 2 grids on top of one end and put pooch pads ontop for a little cover over their cuddle cups. Since the cuddle cups I have aren't absorbant I put a piggy lap pad in each one for an absorbant layer. @boofp I love your little bunkbed what did you use for that?

ROFL. No worries. You just make me laugh! LOL.

@cavyluvr I can just hear my husband groaning, "Can you make up your mind already?" LOL. He'll hate it when he realizes that C&C cages can be changed over and over and over and over and over and....

I think I've pretty much pegged out that, for now, as soon as I can get a set of 6 cubes, I'll get them and pay for expansions later. Right now, I'm just trying to get set up for guinea pigs. As much as I would love to build a mansion, I think people have built up to that. 6 cubes cost $22; there's other things I'll need to get so I'll just have to be happy with that for now. At least I got 9 free cubes from elsewhere- maybe I'll still be able to make a (simple) second level. :)

boofp seems to have used the alternate version cubes. When I went to WalMart looking for the cubes (only sold online), that's what the guy showed me. It was made up of plastic though. Don't you worry they'll chew through that? :/

Question # 1 ) I have two girls, Gidget and Gemini.
Question # 2 )Gidget is about 6 Months and Gemini is 3 months.
Question # 3) Fluffy Tunnel I made out of 2 old fleece PJ Tops and one pair of bottoms I didn't like anymore. I took the arm hole of a top cut it straight at shoulder and Placed a Piece of Field line( I used it for tunnels at one time bought at lowes) sewed the fabric around it to keep ends open. Next I cut the bottom part of pj pants (stars) and Hand sewed the fabrics together.


 
@boofp I love your little bunkbed what did you use for that?

I used some grids that my walmart was selling instead of the wire ones. I Took two of the grids bent them into L shapes and zip tied them together. The bunk bed(cabana bed) Tree house(its been called many things) is sitting/zip tied on the coroplast sides of the kitchen area and zip-tied to wire cubes. They are made of plastic and They have nibbled but never ate them. Guess they don't taste good. My girls aren't big chewers
