So I have two jumbo amazonbasics cages and I was hoping someone would be creative enough to help me with some ideas on how to connect the two cages. I’m not sure if the two side panels could be raised and I could make a ramp of some sort, in fact the cage actually comes with a ramp I could maybe use. But has anyone done this with this cage, or have any ideas?

They really dont look it. I'm quite surprised.
The floor space isn’t quite the same, as the top of the cage bottom sticks out a bit at the ends, but it is pretty close to 47 inches long. But if I can’t figure out how to connect the two, or if it takes up too much space with the bottoms, I’m thinking about selling the extra cages I have and building a 2x5 c&c cage.

Do the c and c 👍. I would if i could, its not a bad idea having two store cages put together, but the middle wall with a bridge will stop zoomies from happening, and if one of your pigs get old, it might not work very well

Yeah, that’s true! I have made a list of all the prices so I can start saving up for that. I currently have 3 piggies at the moment, all around a few months old.

Hi!
I have similar cages, and I joined the 2 together. The sides of mine lift up which was super handy, I then cable tied it together so they won’t roll apart . I made a ramp out of wood and carpet that goes in-between the divider. :)
