What seems to be a nice feature is that they comepletely break down flat for easy transport. I agree these would be good cages for events.

Can someone call their customer line and get a quote?

It sounds like they don't sell direct. You have to go through a retailer?

Still don't know about the 'washable bottom' . May be too much trouble for some. But it's great if they are making bigger cages.

I would still use bedding or fleece in it.

I would love to get one of these just for travelling purposes. Grant it, I only go about 5 minutes away to visit family, but it would be very nice to be able to have a collapsable cage to take with me. Ive been trying to think of ways to transport a C and C cage base for the holidays. We always go to my grandmothers, which is such a short distance, and I will be taking the boys with me. The grids are easy enough to transport, its just that darn base that Im stuck on!

Great ideas need to be copied. It's great that a company is making proper cages for guinea piggies and showing the proper size per amount of piggies.

I just worry about the copyright thing. I don't know if has a copyright for their idea of the C&C cages. Let's hope other companies imitate this idea and build proper size cages for all animals anyway ;-)

Teresa didn't patent the idea, so everyone can freely copy off of her and provide good homes for guinea pigs.

Time to liven up this thread! This is the final renovation to our cage -- I swear! We finished up quarantine/introductions with two new baby girls about a week ago. So, we merged their cages! I just cleaned, too. ;)

I can't fit it all in one picture!

Upstairs. :D

I know why it's so clean-no piggys in it : )

Great cage-wow.

I will not show my pigs this cage. They will demand a complete renovation of their home. I am soooo jealous!

I would love some pictures of how people have built kitchen areas. Right now I have a 2x4 bin with a 2x1 bin on the end. It isn't cut right, doesn't fit right, and SOMEONE sits with his butt on the joint and pees. Gross gross gross!! I guess I should snap some photos but what I have now isn't right.

I poked around the WEAVER photo album and see she sets the kitchen inside the main cage. I tried this a long time ago and it was a nightmare. I could NOT get it to fit right. I guess I have a hard time measuring and cutting that accurately. It's hard to draw and cut straight lines on coro.

So any ideas? I don't use hay racks which I guess makes things harder. You guys have successfully made me paranoid about heads getting stuck.

Great cage, Keezy. I love the colors and I really love the configuration. I'm curious how much your piggies pee and poop outside of the kitchen area.

I made boxes out of choro, which I know you've already tried. But I physically measured the area rather then trying to math it out. I put the fleece and towels in and then measured to make sure I had it right.
The fleece actually ends right underneath the box so the box basically just sits on the grids. The fosters' box is better in that the sides are high so I don't get quite as much hay on the carpet.

This is my fosters' hay box.

This is my girls' hay box.

I do use grids as hay racks, but as you can see a bit in the above picture, I used pliers to squeeze the openings and make them bigger. The girls have plenty of room to stick their heads through the opening without worrying about getting their heads stuck.
