This is the best cage ever! A very reasonable price also. I have no idea why I didn't get one of these from the get go of owning guinea pigs. My piggies are so much more happier now, and there is so much more room for accessories and toys. I love that the cage is expandable also so you can add on if you want more guinea pigs. It is so much easier for me to keep clean making my darlings so much more happier. I line the cage with puppy pee pads and then the pink blanket on top. All i have to do in a full cage clean is wipe down the green liner. Replace pee pads and change the blanket. I already clean up poops twice a day. And full clean weekly. So much easier than having to take a whole bottom of a cage apart and emptying somewhere else. But nothing leaks onto the green liner anyway. There is another amazon review on here that someone mentions the cage is flimsy. That is NOT the case. The cage basically comes assembled already, you just have to attach one corner and then put the lining on the bottom which is done with velcro straps on edges. And then the lid onto the top. There are metal clips to keep the top on.) My blankets on top are only there as nights have been cold. It comes off during the day time. I recommend this cage highly. You can also purchase a replacement liner (green part) separate But i don't think i will have to in a long time. My first pic I is the whole cage, the second pic is the clips that go all the way around the top, the third pic is the Velcro straps that the green liner is attached to the cage with, and the Fourth pic is the opening of which you can expand your cage or you can open it if you let your piggies run freely.
Perfectly packed, the cage is easy to set up without too much reference to the instructions. The guineapigs loved it immediately. The cage top comes included so it’s up to you whether you want to put it on or leave it off - the cage can be set up to your preference which is great.
I love this cage, and so do my guinea pigs the popcorn and run about in it a lot! It’s so spacious which is better than the ones at the pet shop. I recommend this cage to everyone who wants to give there piggy the space it deserves! Very good material and worth every penny!
Great product. Love it and so do my piggies. Very happy with it and great value. Would buy more if I got more animals. And was delivered a day early with tracked delivery service. I extended it with my run, just attached it onto the end of it. But large enough as it was. I just needed a space for hay for my animals and have done that until my divider comes
This cage is not easy to assemble because it is just so flimsy. It collapses on itself so easily during assembly that it’s difficult to get it up. Once up, it has the soft, water proof material that you have to Velcro on to the bottom of the assembled cage to give your cage further strength. It’s a real job cleaning the material because it lacks a sturdy base. When cleaning, the whole cage rattles and moves along with the material, making it a very difficult job because there is no hard base. And you may ask, ‘why not just remove the material?’ Well, with 18 Velcro straps and a super flimsy frame, I don’t think anyone would like to do that every time they have to clean the cage. As I have mentioned it is not sturdy at all. The lid it comes with is very flimsy and when you have the middle divider in place, it is impossible to close this lid if you have fleece lining your cage, so please be aware of this. It’s a design flaw with the divider because the divider has 4 downward facing pieces that need to be attached on to the cage by pushing down on to the cage so they sit on the cage for support. Because your fleece or any thick material you use is below, it stops the divider from sitting flush with the area on the cage that the divider needs to clip on to. This not only affects the divider making it unusable, but the lid will NOT close at all unless you force the lid down and hope that you can clip it down on to the frame with the clips that come attached to the lid. This makes it a terrifying ordeal for your guineas especially when the divider is being used during the bonding stage and your guineas we already under stress. I would not invest in this cage. Look in to making your own C&C cage which is what I’ve ended up doing as this cage is too flimsy and way too small for two guineas.
Easy to access your guinea pigs and to feed/clean daily. All on one level so much easier than having 2 tier. It opens at either side ( like a picnic basket ). Room for 2 GP’s, More would be crowded. The base can be put in the washing machine and you can order a spare base. This would be handy if you do not have another cage or run to put them in while base is in machine. I have one of the side gates open and have another run at end. This is my own run. However, I’d expect this company to have additional parts so you can extend the side of cage. All in all pleased with the functionality of this cage. Entry from the roof makes it easier to look after your GP’s. My GP’s are happy too.
Same size expected but flimsy, the sides I had to cable tie because they were very unstable and wonky. The sides were caving in and leaning out making the floor peice crease and making it harder to clean properly. My piggies run around and their sawdust goes everywhere wouldn't recommend at all. Wont be returning as my piggies seem to like the size of it and shipping costs are expensive. Hope someone finds this useful.
