Hi @Hector I have a two tier cage like yours with an added shelf on the top tier for hideys, and we have a puppy pen permanently attached as their 'garden' area. My partner cut a hole in the front so they don't have to worry about too many ramps, and they seem to like the burrow effect this gives the cage!

If for any reason we need to shut them in the cage for a while, we have a metal flap (used to be wooden) that we screw on across the hole to keep them in! IT's great because we can extend the outdoor area with another pen, and make it smaller if needs be, too!

I will say we don't use the radiator behind the cage!

I couldn't find a cage big enough for my 3 piggies and I thought cutting holes in my 2 cages and trying to find a tunnel to connect them would be too much hassle so I brought 2 Midwest cages and have connected them together. They come with a cage divider so I used one of them on the end of one of the cages to create a ramp into thier outdoorsy area.

Cage Type: C&C
Where it was purchased or how it was made: Amazon.
What size it is: 5x2
How many piggies are kept in it: 2
How easy it is to keep clean/if you'd recommend it: It's super easy to clean. I use fleece bedding so I spot clean every day and then do a full cage clean once a week. I recommend it but personally, I think it's too small. This summer I am building a loft.

I am always changing the setup so the piggies have a new place to explore but here is how I currently have it set up.

I have a 2-floor hutch with an attached c&c. My 3 piggies are free range in the living room from 8am to 10pm so they really have a big space for a house. They also have a place under a chair at the other side of the living room so they go back and forth whenever they want to.

I have been looking through everyone's lovely, hutches, C & C and homemade cages and thought I would share some of my own. These are some of my indoor cages bought from Better Bunny Homes Quirky Animal Housing. Julie makes them to order, so I chose the size, colour and design and I am thrilled with the way they turned out!

IMG_0075.JPGIMG_0293.JPG

They are 6ft wide, 2ft deep and just over 6ft height. The first pic is how they were when first delivered and assembled. I did find the doors too big though, so my husband made them each into two smaller doors. Currently the middle level is occupied by two piggies I just adopted. My other two pigs live in a cage my husband and I made. I do small animal boarding and these cages are supposed to be just for boarders, but they are gradually being occupied with rescue pigs!

Ooo beautiful, but I can imagine how much of a pain to clean it out it would be.

They are not too bad actually, the upper and middle ones are easy. The lower one is a little difficult as I have a bad back.

I want to show you my new cage.

It’s a Colosseum 160 from MORE4. I purchased it at “Fressnapf” a pet store in Switzerland.
It’s 160cm on 80cm. Currently are three piggies living in it, in the future it will may be four.
It’s really easy to clean because it has four big doors to open. My piggies an I really love this cage because of the size and the two big front doors.

So I initially started with a Midwest Ferret Nation which my piggy loved but I also brought the Midwest Guinea Habitat which she loves too.

Cage Type?
This is a commercial cage

Where it was purchased or how it was made?
This sells on Amazon but they are shipped from the USA although there are many UK online retailers selling the cage and replacement or upgrade parts, such as the divider, the ramp and cover, the lid, spare canvas etc etc.

What size it is?
This is 120 cm x 60 cm. Suitable for 1 to 2 piggys.

How many piggies are kept in it?
Only 1 baby piggy at the moment.

How easy it is to keep clean/if you'd recommend it?
I use polythene sheeting on the base to stop any staining, you can also pop the canvas in the washing machine which I did when I first brought it.
Fleece is simple to lay down and change every 7 days, I don't use an absorbent layer because they stink as they can't dry like fleece does, so I just put fleece which dries before it even wicks!

The best thing about this cage is that you can fold it up and it's so light and easy to travel with, the other bonus is being able to connect more on any side you like or if introducing piggys you just use the divider and split the cage in half.

I just have to show you my cage extension.

Don’t mind the frozen bottles.

I have a „Colosseum 160“ from more4pets and I now extended it with a „Plaza 160“ from Ferplast.

Size:
160x80 downstairs and
160x60 upstairs

Right now I have two piggies, but they soon will be four😉.

For me it’s very easy to clean as I am tall so I reach every corner without problems.
