Merlin and Galahad have been snarking at each other over pellets, so the kitchen wall was changed. Though it only made escape easier for Galadah, so we built the new upper deck to make a second feeding area. (Conflicts are only during pellet time for some weird reason)
It's a simple 3 square based L shape with a 2-grid long ramp made by bending grids. (Galahad sees the ramp as his new sleeping-under place). I tried to lay everything out so that zoomies will be as good as ever (possibly better, once Galahad is comfortable enough to zoom up the ramp). The front half of the upper-deck was made by cutting a grid in half.
And to think my mother already thought my cage was a monstrosity ;)

Honestly, sometimes I feel like my boys are too big for just a 2x4 C&C. I really would like to have a 2X8.
This is their new, devided cage with Kitchen up top as soon as I'm sure they'll use the ladders. I actually underestimated the size of my chunky guys and need to go back and widen the bridge opennings, so they don't have squeeze!
I'm also trying fleece, and I found 2 cages worth on sale for $10. It was a set to tie together in a blanket actually. One peice is the bright blue in the first picture, and this is the cute peice. I love it :)
My mom says she hopes my own kids pay me back someday by surprise! adopting a giraffe, and then surprise! that giraffe needs a buddy giraffe. :) I hope so too.
There are many alternatives to C&C Cages. I just don't want you to experience the gross results of a hutch that I did!
Grids are from Bunnings, in (or around) the storage aisle. Corflute can be found in the garden section (at some bunnings, it comes between the pallets of pavers, it's black and sometimes they'll let you take it for free). Cable Ties are in the electrical section.
And before the C+C I had a $200 wooden hutch...used it for 2 years (the last year was only when we had people coming to look at the house and I had to pack up the C+C's on the bathroom and laundry floor) and even though it was not in sunlight or exposed to any weather it was falling apart, and at one stage I was only using it once every few weeks.
This is my girls current cage (it's very...girly), along with the new Weaver products they got some new girly fleece.
My parents have said no more fleece...apparently I have a *slight* problem. This isn't counting the fleece in the two cages, the one under the girls cage and the two I use to cover the ends on cool nights...and fleece season (aka winter) is coming soon. Oh dear :P
