I guess it depends on whether they are Monday or Friday grids. ;)

My cage is nothing too exciting compared to the wonderful cages I've seen here, but my piggies' favorite accessory is a small plastic coated wire shelf with legs that is big enough for two to lounge under or jump on top of to give me the "I need food now" stare. I got the idea from a post somewhere here (sorry, I don't remember where). This shelf has cardboard woven on top so they can sit on it. It's just a shelf you'd find at a hardware or home store. Thank you - whoever posted this idea first!

As soon as I put it in their cage it became their favorite place to hang out, over their cuddle cup, tube, fleece corner, and wooden house. It's great to see them taking turns jumping off of it and doing laps at food time!

Lyndsay - that's a great cage! But how do you catch the piggies or clean it?

Lyndsay, I love your cage, very fun! I want it, or one just like it. But how do you get to the piggies? Also, how many are in there and do they always come downstairs for the water bottle? Gus Gus (my sweet sweet albino piggie) hangs out in the top of his cage all day and if he doesn't come down he forgets to drink water, or atleast he doesn't want until I offer it to him, then he drinks ALOT! Maybe he is just a little challenged (you never know what can be going on when they come from Petsmart, hehe) or forgetful. I love that the floor has pictures of Winnie the Pooh n friends, is that coroplast? Did it come like that? Beautiful cage.

We now have a skywalk to attach the two condos so that the condo piggies can have room to zoom like the floor piggies (whomever may be whichever place, whatever day).

Funny, Taj and Foster both find it fun and zoomy, Dash and Laz will slink across it when they wants to get to the other side.

Funny pigs.

Here's mine: the ramp is actually... rain gutter with rug stuck on (double sided tape. wee). It is a two-level ramp where the middle is one of those small squares as a sort of landing (they make em in like, teeny size, if that makes sense).

Image

It's high off the ground because I sincerely doubted my girls wanted to have puppy eyes peering over the side at them. That black coroplast just sitting there on the top (upper right) is from when it was a tri-level; we removed the topmost level and used those squares to make another level of stand on the bottom.

Here's a pic of the ramp from when we had just built it:

Eek! My stupid pigs would probably jump down from the skywalk.

Zalida, I was thinking the same thing about Cuzko! She can climb and jump just about anything. That would be a piece of cake. BL, has that ever happened?

If it had happened I probably wouldnt have shown you pictures of it and would have kept my bad idea to myself. They just zoom along the path - Foster peeked the side once but he just kept along the path.

I can see it might be an issue if it was night in the dark, but in the dark of night, we have 2 separate condos.

ps, I honestly was not meaning to sound snarky - but it sure showed up that way to me when I just reread it.

Sorry!

I'm sure you wouldn't keep your cage set up like that if there was even a chance of a problem. I just seem Cuzko jumping over the top, falling, and breaking a leg or something. I'll be laying in bed on my side and Cuzko will climb up my legs and jump down.

Maybe if she was my crazy climber piggie I would somehow create it to be a Skychunnel!! Foster is the hopper but it obviously has not occurred to him. *he is probably not half as smart at Cuzko!*

I'm sure Foster is smarter than he lets on. He's saving it for at the least opportune moment!

Cuzko is incredibly smart. She's not afraid of anything, will investigate everything, and eat whatever fits in her mouth.

She gets that eating thing from my side of the family!

Of course it's the stuff she's not supposed to eat:

tv remote
pizza and/or cheese bread
napkins
ice cream.

She's not sneaky either. She just runs up and helps herself. If you think she wouldn't be interested in it and turn your back, all you'll hear are the little piggy smacking sounds.
