A lot of different sites say different things and I wanted to make sure I get this right! I have one piggy right now and I might get another (Pumpkin is from a pet store, but I learned how it's better to get them from shelters!) and I was wondering would this be a good size cage for 1-2 cavys?
Old Picture ^^^^^
I realized the shipping was very expensive and I might want to get a different cage anyway, some one said I needed more floor space, does anyone have any websites where they found good cages? (Two boars so a 2x5 probably) Preferably <$80?
Or is it cheaper to make your own C & C cage? Where would I get the materials? I just want to make sure I have the right cage! Right now I have a small pet smart one before I learned it's TERRIBLE for them and I'm trying to find a new big enough cage! So please help me (and Pumpkin!) find a new cage: thanks!
You don’t have to have a correx base with grids. My OH built a plywood base with small upstand all round. Or it can sit on the floor directly with a waterproof layer underneath (shower curtain or table cloth. I’m not sure where in the US you can get grids and connectors (cable ties can also be used to tie a structure together). In the UK Wayfair used to sell a shelving unit that was grids and connectors. You can also find them on EBay and sometimes on Amazon. I got my first cubes and connectors sold as a shelving unit from a hardware store. Correx was expensive so that’s why the OH built me a base for the floor. There are many examples of home built cages here on the forum.
