    Temp cage

    I ordered for a C&C cage and I won’t arrive for at most a week. I’m planning to get a guinea pig some time early in the week and I need to put him in a cage temporarily so I have a small travel cage about 25” x 12” x 14”. Is this okay for just a temporary solution till I get the real cage?
