The link above will get you 30 C&C Cage grids for £35 quid in mainland UK at the moment. £6.99 more for people on Northern Ireland and outlying areas.
Literally just ordered some. Thought I'd throw it up here while it's around.

Just a quick note to say today I was sent an extensive listing of UK rescues. I alphabetized it and tried to add a listing of locations to help people find a rescue near them. A few rescues did not add a location so I don't know where they are.

Here's the new list!

People on The Guinea Pig Forum worked on this and want to get the word out so more people will adopt.

For people in The Netherlands, c&c cages available through this website

One advertised cage is 2x2 so way too small, and these cages are pretty pricy, but they come to your home ready for easy assembly according to the site, so maybe it is worth it.

Lynx, can I add something to that list of UK rescues? I volunteer with Hazelcroft Rescue, Hertfordshire and we now have a website so it would be good to add the web address for that. Shall I add to this post or pm to you?

You can email me with the details (sometimes easier to look up old emails to find out who has recommended who). The board mailer should work fine for this or you can use:

So I haven't done an analysis of all ingredients in the below pellets, because I lack the knowledge, but I looked at the main ingredient, fiber and protein content and calcium and phosphorus percentages.

Below are pellets that have a grass as the main ingredient and are low in calcium. They are usually available in (large) parts of Europe (Zooplus delivers widespread). A good pellet is hard to find, but I think these four are relatively okay for our piggies

VetCarePlus Multi Modal Guinea Pig Food (not a pellet, more of a stick)

Main ingredient: dried timothy hay
Crude fibre: 25%
Calcium: 0,5% (phosphorus 0,4%)
Protein: 16%

JR Farm Grainless Complete

Main ingredient: timothy grass
Crude fibre: 23%
Calcium: 0,5% (phosphorus 0,3%)
Protein: 11,2%

Bunny GuineaPigDream BASIC

Main ingredient: grasses
Crude fibre: 21%
Calcium: 0,6% (phosphorus 0,4%)
Protein: 16%

LivingWorldGreen Adult CelluPlus (hard to get)

Main ingredient: timothy grass
Crude fibre: 22%
Calcium: 0,4-0,6% (phosphorus 0,3%)
Protein: 13%

Hopefully this will be of help to fellow Europeans
