Hello
My boars are not getting on at all.
I have plenty of cages , so have separated them. The cages stack so they can't see each other. Will they get lonely. Does anyone know of a massive cage or hutch that has a wire divider, or how to keep them happy without taking lumps out of each other.

Hi! I am very sorry that your two boys are not getting on, but for mutual stimulation it is better if they can interact through the bars.

I would recommend to look at C&C grid cages, which you can adapt to any size and outlay to suit your individual needs and space constraints. Have a look through our members' cage gallery (start at the back) to get some inspiration!

Can you get as far as either Cavy Corner in Doncaster, BARC in Barnsley or Milhaven in Keithley - in this case you could consider dating your two boys at any of these rescues so both your boys can be bonded with a character compatible companion - with the guarantee that you won't end up with yet another split pair as you will always have the rescue you are using to fall back on.
