    Recessed Ramp

    Our Deluxe, multi-level cages use our new recessed ramp design! This design provides a more stable cage overall without the need to overlap grids in the front of the cage.

    Versatility

    You get a more professional look and the ability to add or remove a top as desired.

    Our Ingenious Reinforced Ramp!

    We invented the Reinforced Coroplast Ramp! Our Coro ramps are very strong as they are reinforced FOUR times along the length of the ramp with a strong custom wire made just for us. This keeps the shape of the walls and adds to the overall strength of the ramp while at the same time, still giving you some flexibility in how you adapt it for your own use!multi-colored cage

    How long will it take? (shipping FAQs)

    Large Cage Dimensions

    • Lower level = 27" x 56" = about 10.5 Square Feet of cage space
    • Upper level = about 4.5 Square Feet of additional space
    • Total = about 15 Square Feet of cage space
    • Exterior: 30" x 60" when assembled = you will need a table space of about 2.5 feet by 5 feet to accommodate this cage.

    Upper Levels are Good For

    • Providing variety to your guinea pigs to help reduce boredom.
    • A potential Kitchen or Hay area separate from the main cage area. But please note, not all guinea pigs will want to use this.
    • A get-away area for some guinea pig pairs or groups who may not get along all the time. When one guinea pig can get out of sight from another, that can go a long way towards keeping the peace and keeping harassment down.

    Upper Level Things to Consider

    • Older guinea pigs typically loose their interest in going up a ramp to an upper level. Some are not able to as arthritis can bother guinea pigs, just like it can people.
    • Not all guinea pigs will want to use a ramp. It can take patience (as in days, weeks or even months) to get a guinea pig to change and adapt. Do not expect overnight results when adding an upper level. Training with pieces of food can help.
    • While a wider upper level provides more space on top, it is more difficult to reach under a two-grid deep upper deck. It is trickier to clean and to retrieve your guinea pigs for lap time.
    • The gentler the slope of the ramp, the better, but more slope also takes up more precious downstairs cage space, so it's a trade-off.

    Counting Cage Space

    Please keep in mind that you should only count the lower level when determining how much cage space is required for your guinea pigs. Upper levels DO NOT COUNT in determining how much space you are providing. They are used occasionally and sometimes not at all by some or all of your guinea pigs.

    Coro Height Preference

    This refers to the HEIGHT of the COROPLAST on ONE long-side of the cage -- for the back wall.

    • 6" (inches) is standard. 6" sides all the way around maximizes ventilation and visibility, and it is generally high enough to keep in bedding for most guinea pigs. Also, a water bottle spout resting on the top of the 6" Coroplast is a good height for guinea pigs to drink from.
    • 12" (inches) is good if the long side of your cage is going up against a wall. This helps prevent hay (and in some cases bedding) from being kicked up and getting stuck against the wall. You can always cut it down later if you decide it doesn't work for you. The 12" option is just to help you keep your floor and wall cleaner in some circumstances.

    NOTE: We do NOT offer 12" walls all the way around because we do NOT recommend it. It cuts off too much air circulation for the guinea pigs.
    In addition, even if you wanted it regardless of our advice, coroplast
    is only 48 inches wide and that would require 51 inches.

    Deluxe Covered Cage Kit Includes

    • (36) 14" Powder coated Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (34) Connectors in black or white
    • (1) C&C Wonder Bar for support (29"x1" custom-designed by us for C&C Cages) in black or white, matching the grid color
    • 4mm Coroplast bottom in your choice of 16 colors! The base and loft are cut and scored so you only have to secure the flaps with the rivets provided. (Coroplast base is scored and folded for shipping, which makes an indented "crush" line, but it does not affect the function of the cage. It's barely noticeable when fully assembled.)
    • Rivets for fastening all coroplast flaps
    • 27" Ramp in Coroplast color of your choice and edging to match grid color with grey Carpet.
    • Cable ties that match the grid color. (Using cable ties to reinforce the grid connections helps make the cage extra tight and super secure.)
    • Easy-to-follow, color assembly instructions with photos
    • Two-page Guinea Pig Care Sheet

    Please NOTE about the Cage Bottom

    The cage does not have grids on the bottom. They are unnecessary. The cage is designed to sit nicely on a flat surface -- a table top, a desk, the floor (if it's draft-free), etc.

    However, if you desire, you can make a cage stand out of grids. Please see our matching Cage Cubby™ Large System if you are interested in a cage stand.


    ASSEMBLY

    We include detailed instructions with every kit, but if you have questions, we are always more than happy to help you out! Just contact us--pop us a note with your phone number and we will call you back as soon as possible with in-person assistance!

    PLACEMENT

    Please do not put the Coroplast directly on a hardwood floor. Moisture from the air and/or wood can get trapped and has nowhere to go and hence can cause sweating -- which has NOTHING to do with the quality or character of the cage. Nor is the cage leaking. All you have to do is put something absorbent down first like a towel or carpet and set the cage bottom on that instead of directly on wood.

    NEW! Rivets on the Flaps!

    • We've updated our cage design to make it even easier and more secure than ever! All of our Coroplast bases now come with nice, clean holes -- professionally punched in the appropriate locations. We include our new, easy-snap-in plastic rivets for securing the base. 
    • The rivets, while very secure when in place, can also be popped back open with a little separation pressure should you need to dissemble your cage and are generally reuseable.

    How many Guinea Pigs will fit in a 2x4?

    • Up to 2 adult guinea pigs comfortably. It varies a bit depending upon your group. This is the recommended cage size for two guinea pigs. Males typically need a bit more room than females and while this cage can work, we ideally recommend a 2x5 size for two males.
    • It would be possible to house a well-bonded group of 3, but 4 would really pushing it in this size cage. Keep in mind with more guinea pigs in a smaller cage, it's also more work to keep it clean.
    • ONE guinea pig needs at least a 2x3 grid-sized cage. This cage size is really too small to divide, so you should make your decision wisely if you suspect you may have to divide the cage. In that case, you should go with a larger size to start with.

    Impressed Piggies

    <p>My husband and I ordered the Deluxe Large covered cage. We are completely impressed with the quality of the product. The instructions were clear and made assembly fun and easy. Every part and every extra item we ordered was neatly packaged and arrived earlier than expected. My 2 piggie boys love their new home and run endless laps in appreciation. We will buy all cage necessities from and refer everyone to this store!!!</p>

    Cage for our babies

    <p>I am so glad to have found this company. I did not realize how large of a cage was required to happily keep 2 Guineas. The two were kept separate until the cage arrived and were introduced to it together. Its been complete harmony ever since. They both have developed their own personalities and entertain us daily. They are my other two children &lt;3 Thank you for all of your information, and help. Fast and friendly service!</p>

    Amazing Hedgehog Cage

    I bought this cage over 6 months ago for a new baby hedgehog. It arrived so fast and was packaged very well. It was easy to put together and everything fit with no gaps. I purchased the 10" walls and the cover not knowing how big Q-Bert was going to get. He is still a small hedgehog and I don't use the cover because he can't get out. The cage is very sturdy, it doesn't have any sharp edges and is well worth the price.The colorplast is durable and easy to clean. Q-Bert runs around the whole cage all night, up the ramp, down the ramp and over again. I am so glad that I found this company and Q-Bert loves his cage.

    This cage is wonderful!

    <p>I was nervous about buying a cage online that I hadn't actually seen in person, but based on the reviews I read, I went ahead and ordered one. I'm SO glad I did. I wouldn't have been able to buy a cage this nice in any pet store in my area. We were originally going to get 2 piggies, but ended up getting 3 baby guinea pigs. They LOVE their cage. They weren't even in it 2 days and they were already popcorning. It took them about 2 days to figure out the ramp/loft, but once they did that is their favorite place to be (other than in their kitchen eating!)</p>

    Absolutely worth the price!

    I have built cages like this in the past and this time decided to be lazy and order one so that I wouldn't have to drive from store to store looking for the grids. Also, cutting the chloroplast correctly to fit the size you need (without cutting yourself or your flooring) was the worst part of making them. I went crazy and got funky colors for the 2nd level. I had trouble placing my order and was amazed that on a Sunday, my email was replied to immediately. The problem was with my computer and I placed the order Sunday. My cage was delivered on Wednesday. I was also impressed to see "please deliver to side door" hand written on the box so the delivery person couldn't miss it. When it arrived, it was indeed at our side door!



    The instructions that come with the kit are wonderful and very easy to follow. I put all of it together myself except for installing the ramp which really needed an extra hand to get it attached in exactly the right spot.



    My pigs refused to go up the ramp when I tried to shove them up there, but when I was cleaning it a few days later, I put one pig on the second level and left the room. When I returned a minute later, the other pig had joined her up there. They haven't used it since, but I have hope that they will at some point. If they never do, the second level will be a great place for storage.



    I will say that cleaning under the loft is quite a challenge as my hand won't reach all the way under there. A small broom of some sort will be needed.



    The price of these cages may shock some people...but there are no store bought cages that even come close to being big enough to make pigs happy. With the color, size, and other options available, the great instructions, amazing customer service, and the ease of having the chloroplast cut to size for you...this really can't be beat.
