This was right after we got it together and put all the bedding it in. We were so excited to get "APG" in it!
You guys are NOT so good for my cage fever! HAha Ok so plan a to relax tonight has turned into plan B massive reorganization and cage change... Haha thanks guys!
I finally have picures of mine, Scruff wasnt settling at all so I put his old hutch in with him and he ran straight into it and started purring and he's been moving about more the past 10 minutes since I pu it in. I will take it out once he is settled but I guess he's just lonely.
Also I know I dont have much for them but we're struggling financially and our main concern was giving them more space. Next month I'm buying materials to strat making cuddle cups.
- they seem to spend more time chilling in the kitchen and running like crazy in the main cage
their make-shift litter box is filled with megazorb - I'm trying to encourage them to stop peeing in the food bowl!!
Scruff in his hutch (again megazorvb in it)
Close up of their food mat - I couldn't resist
I live in hot, sticky, humid New Orleans so the hay tends to meld to my fleeces and make half my cage into a disgusting mess. It creeps, too. What starts out around the hay rack has taken up half the cage by the next day. I'm sick of it. So my hayrack has got to go. I want a bin, placed on something that's not fleece so I can brush the droppings into the trash instead of seeing my poor girls in a lake of mud. (Yuck, right?)
I know my girls, and I know they will park their fat little bums in the hay bin when they can no longer eat from the comfort of their houses. For that reason, I want a bin with a low lip. I'm considering two things from the Container Store:
A medium or large stacking bin as a corner bin
A mini stacking basket, perhaps with coroplast on the bottom to keep little feet from getting stuck.
Do either of these look like a terrible idea or an awesome idea?
Here are some excellent pics of hay racks and what people put under them... Hope this helps!
O redid my cage AGAIN! OMGosh I think it is the 16th-17th + time I have changed the cage in the 3 years I have had a c&c cage... Haha Its amazing how much more room they have in the cage now that there is no coroplast. I am hoping that their poops do not get all over the place especially behind the cage in the heater vents. Yuck! haha. It doesnt look the best and it takes up a lot more room but the boys definately liked being able to go in and out their selves last night. I need to do a cage evolution series of pics... Haha I wish I had gotten pics of all the cages but some didnt stay up for long because they were too hard to clean.
2nd attempt with a different ramp situation...
3rd attempt 3 level cage (sorry its so hard to see I didn't get a full pic of it. At this time I had Sweety, Monty and 2 fosters Toffee and Fudge.
Little better pic but darker
Ok attempt # ??? does it matter at this point? lol 4x4 HATED it because I had to step into it to clean it and I ended up dragging poop everywhere.
Then we fostered Wendall, Gus Gus, patches (RIP)... Then we went to this cage: 2x12 and we had 2 piggies in a 2x4 and we had 3 2x4 cages.
Then we went to a stacking 2x6 for 6 male piggies. There were 3 piggies on each level. After the abuse issues with my now ex husband I had to more activly adopt out all the fosters as it was only me who is disabled taking care of 2 human boys under 4 and all the other animals...
When we moved to a tiny 2 bedroom apartment 200+miles away from all my friends and family we were down to 2 male guinea pigs Sweety and Gus Gus. I was only able to provide a 2x3 cage. I was too ashamed to take pics but heres as close a pic. Its in the far right courner:
Now that everything is finally unpacked and we are starting to adjust and get rid of unnessisary items I have enough room for a 2x6. I did not how ever have anymore coroplast and there is no where up here to get it so I used a left over tarp folded in 3rds.
And heres the boys (who still havent figured out the cuddle sacs... haha
Anyway, does anyone know "where to buy those mini-cubes/grids?" I have been looking everywhere and looking for pictures over at gpc.com hoping there's a caption saying where they got it but I just couldn't find it. I am in dire need of it for a piggy cage project. Thanks in advance!
You have given me sooooooooooooooooooooooooo many more ideas, plus I just loved the first attempt, 2nd attempt 3rd attempt then attempt??? LOL you cracked me up :) :) :) your humer is just outstanding :)
You have just opened my eyes as to how much you can do! and how high you can go and everything! I need too borrow your brain for a week ... do you mind? :) :) :) simply stunning is all that comes too mind, the lengths that you went too to try different styles and shapes is just amazing, your dedication to your piggies is a testiment too yourself, you go above and beyond the call of duty especially with fosters. You have a special place in my heart now. :)
