I'm going away next week and am looking for a not too expensive cage that the pigs could live in for 4 days at someone else's house. Any suggestions of a cheap and not too large (but obviously not too small!) cage?

You can always look for something like this. I have a pink one of these that i use as a hospital cage or spare cage- it folds away so easily storage. If you search fabric play pen/puppy pens you can see a number of them on amazon :). You can get this in about 5 diff sizes i think :)


Much better for using fleece with- i imagine it wouldn't work for disposable bedding very well. :)

Actually just looked at it and it's only 1 square metre so might be ok. Would they be ok to stay in there for a few days? It's sturdy enough?

For 2 piggies it will be fine, just give them lots of places to hide... Cardboard boxes make great temporary hides... :nod::nod:
