- Guinea Pig Market
Well this happened luckily when I was home, but I heard some terrible screaming and ran to the pig cage. One of my smaller guys had his head stuck!
My husband had to run and grab the wire cutters and gently cut the grid all around where his head was. He came out safe and sound luckily, but had I not been home things could have been much worse.
This is very scary and dangerous, I sure hope that Target will do the right thing here. I contacted them via email and they just sent me a generic message stating their concern, blah blah blah.

Target has stopped manufacturing the 9 square grids, so you may want to buy some. You can always use the grids for storage if you end up with too many.
Other stores may still carry them later on; I hope they all do not eventually switch to the new style of grids.
It is great that you are planning ahead. :)
Then, tell us which Target you went to that still had them so the rest of us can go buy what's left.
The Target I'm going to is located in Millersville, Maryland. It's the closest one to my house. There's also one in Glen Burnie, Maryland that I'm going to check out today also.
Oh well, if this means I have to spend a little over $40 for two future pigs then so be it.
There's also another Target down in PG County that I may check out if my boyfriend is willing to make the drive. Would stores like Wal-mart carry them too? I may even mosy over to Bed, Bath and Beyond.

I was thinking of putting an ad in the "wanted" section of my local craigslist asking to buy the old style. Surely there are people out there using the grids as shelving and ready for an upgrade. I've been able to buy grids at garage sales before, and our Salvation Army thrift store had some last year and now I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy them!
