    Hiya. I am looking at the ferplast casita 120 as I like the idea of the top opening. I was wondering about adding another level and have notice lots of people have done this. How have you attached another level? Thanks

    I've just ordered a cage for my pigs when we get them! :yahoo: Exciting. I've gone for the fairly basic Ferplast 120.

    I'm thinking about possibly taking out the hidey bit it comes with, and adding slightly bigger/higher mezzanine level with a ramp, just to maximise their space a bit. I'm wondering what to use though? I'd like it to be fairly sturdy and permanent, I'm wondering if I can get some thinnish wood, drill holes, and use cable ties, but would that be sturdy enough to hold two pigs? What can I cover it with to protect it from piggy whizz?

    Thanks :lol:

    I just used planks of wood through the bars and added a cardboard wall.

    The red tube on the ramp for traction is brilliant. How did you find it, maybe I can find something similar in the US @Garden

    Would you be willing to show/tell how you did that? It looks great and I'm sure the increase in space is much appreciated.

    Hi all, this is my 1st day on this forum. I've had Guinea-pig's my whole life and I currently have one. She lost her friend and we are off to a rescue next weekend to see if she gets on with one of their girls. Fingerscrossed she will have a friend again. I've just bought a double cage and wanted to know what people have used for the ramp. I've noticed people saying tubes or tunnels but can't find the correct thing online. Plus... How do you get it to stay? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks & hello
