So after many failed attempts at C&C and Midwest type cages I've finally found relief in a commercial cage.
The day I walked in to find my children in the C&C cage with hay everywhere I new it was never going to work, let alone with the cat as well. So I finally found a cage which I love it's the Ferplast 120 Rabbit Cage.

Things I ♡ about this cage are:
1. I can transport it easily in my car for use as a travel and home enclosure.
2. It folds down easily and takes up little room
3. It is fully enclosed with lockable doors, making the piggies feel more secure
4. It's very light weight to transport and clean out
5. The bar spacing is perfect for my water bottle holder and hanging toys from above
6. My darling children can't step into the cage due to the roof
7. It has a hideaway which doubles up as an eating area thus making more space on the main floor. I have put their hay and water up there which further protects the fleece from the hay and dripping bottle.
8. The fleece is so easy to attach, simply place it over he cage and pop the lid on which secures it in the cage, now my piggies can't go under the fleece and I don't spend ages with foldback clips.
9. The Piggies have popcorned all over it.

Below are the pictures, unfortunately my piggies Pertunia & Petals are very camera shy🙄.20180811_114317.jpg20180811_114359.jpg20180811_114427.jpg20180811_114506.jpg
I would 100% recommend this cage it's excellent and very user and piggy friendly ♡.

This is my plaza 160 cage. I use fleece liners in it and so far I love it!
I bought it on zoo plus. The only problem I find is that it's a bit flimsy. Needed to cable tie some of the edges to make it more sturdy. Plus it's a bugger to put together! Lol

My new piggies home! I adopted these guys last week and their fleece arrived yesterday.

This is the Ferplast Casita 120. It’s the minimum size, and I’m probably going to get them something bigger fairly soon, but it’s a lovely cage. It’s quite nice and spacious for my two, but if you’re going to get this cage I recommend getting rid of the little ramp thing and just using it as an extra level as I’ve done, or just getting rid of it altogether because it will take up their popcorning space :yahoo:

Just to let you know, the newspaper in their litter tray is only temporary, going to get some bath mats for it today.

My piggies home 💙
It's the bottom level of a savic royal xxl suite
It's 115.5cm x 67.5 cm which is just above the minimum for 2 Guinea pigs (2.25ft x 3.95ft)
I took out all of the ramps and levels but am considering putting the level back in when I find a way to customise it and make it Guinea pig safe.
The bar spacing is 1.4cm
Obviously it wasn't designed for Guinea pigs but it's amazingly easy to clean out with removable base trays. The anti spill metal things mean that it's quite hard for them to throw their bedding everywhere. The top of the cage could be converted to be its own separate cage if you wanted with some minor modifications.

It looks pretty and I like that it’s portable!, but I’m afraid it falls a little short of the minimum, 120cm.

Ahh OK I thought it was OK! I'll have to look into getting a larger cage when they're older 😊

How big would it be if you turned onto side and put a floor in.

Guys, the cage sizings are fine - it's more than the minimum of 8ft sq. Yes, bigger is better, and if you're going to get a bigger one @Louise221200 then go for it, but at the minute you're covered for the minimum.

This is where my boys live. It was bought from a local pet shop that was closing down for £49 (love a bargain). Was trying to decide whether to get more rats or more guineas and this cage answered that question! 🙂 It was out on the shop floor so it didn’t have a brand name on it or anything.

Cage is solid and although the top door is good, the side door isn’t much use. Lid is easy to lift off though (as seen in photos) and not heavy. Perfectly happy with it as we needed something with a lid to keep the dog out!

This is just a Pets at Home cage, with a Pets at Home run around it (the run is attached to the cage and the panels are bent at the bottom to ensure their safety)
All the accessories can be bought at pretty much any pet shop, or online
It has two boys
Cleaning is easy but with the bars there is a considerable amount of mess that gets kicked outside of the cage
We’re upgrading in a few weeks to a wooden diy cageB9D356E6-9EA5-4BEF-B01C-E0B980ED9EEB.jpeg
