    Upgrade your Midwest Cage with a second level that is both secure and has easy-access for cleaning. We strongly encourage a Midwest Diner kitchen to be added underneath, as they'll want to potty more there once they have that area nicely covered with the Mezzanine. Cleaning the removeable, plastic Midwest Diner will be much easier than scrubbing the normal canvas bottom of the Midwest cage.

    Mezzanine for Midwest® Habitat cages only



    Please note: You cannot use both a Mezzanine AND a Piggy Perch together in a Midwest cage. Also a backsplash will not fit near the Mezzanine, but it can be used on the opposite end.

    Currently, Midwest brand cages do not offer a second level as the fencing doesn't support one....until now. Our Mezzanine not only provides your guinea pigs with a second level with two ramps for zoomies, but reinforces the Midwest's fencing, making it stronger and more stable.

    Easy Lift for Cleaning and Access Below!

    Just lift up the platform for 100% access to the cage (or diner) below.

    Lower upper level -- Easier for your Guinea Pigs

    Your guinea pigs will enjoy getting to an upper level on a ramp with a gentler slope.

    Add a deck (patio) in a SINGLE-LEVEL, CLOSED cage!

    Now you can add an "upper level" or Piggy Patio to a single-level cage with a closed top! There is enough clearance for the guinea pigs on both the lower level and the patio level.


    Our Midwest Mezzanine is 13.5 x 22.5" inches with 3.75 inch walls. The two ramps are 6 x 14 inches each and are backed by our short half grid. The coroplast ramps are carpeted and they're recessed flush with the short half grid.

    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 reducing harassment.

    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.
    • 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.

    Great add on!

    I purchased this upper level along with the diner for my Midwest cage with two pigs and they love it. The upper level was easy to put together with easy instructions. Pretty color and design as well! One thing to note is that the loft and diner together cut into the roaming space of the cage a bit. But with some extra free roam time along with a large diner for hay piles (and not as much mess!), my pigs don’t mind! Service was good too, shipping didn’t take long!


    Midwest Loft

    Absolutely LOVE! I really wanted to upgrade but I had just upgraded to the Midwest before discovering this site! This was a perfect middle ground where my boys have extra space to be away from each other. Until I inevitably buy a cage from this site for them! LOL.


    Love it

    This was a great addition to my Midwest cages. I put there hay bag, bowls and veggie up there for them. Leaving the mess just up there.

    Great add on!

    My guinea pigs love this addition! It was easy to set up I like how they added pictures in the instructions

    My pigs and I both love this product!

    I love this because it is so easy to clean. The ramps fold up and it is easy to clean underneath them. I can lift out the grids supporting the loft as well with ease. My guinea pigs love it because the ramps are not very high so they are comfortable climbing up them.

    Love it!

    I love this new level! It’s my favorite I got it to go with the bottom of my cage and it’s perfect. It was a tight fit because of how high the chloroplast walls went on the bottom of my cage. But it works and that’s all the matters. My piggy’s Cocoa and peanut run up and down it all day. It’s there favorite to look out of the level and see what is going on in my room. I’m so glad I found this site. Thank you!


    Fur babies love it!

    I purchased the loft and diner for my piggies!It fit in the Midwest cage like it was always meant to be there! Super easy to put together they provide fool proof instructions! I definitely recommend to any piggie parents with the Midwest cage! It’s not only aesthetically pleasing but the piggies absolutely love it! Thanks again 😀

    This Balcony as I call it is beautiful. My piggies have yet to climb up there but I am sure they will eventually, if not than atleast it looks nice! lol

    Great for Midwest cage

    Great addition without extending the ends of the cage. I put a cover over the side and they are jumping up and down the ramps all day.

    My boys love it

    Wasn’t sure if the boys would like this but I wanted to give them a little more room. They not only love running up the ramps but they enjoy laying and eating underneath it as well. Great idea!


    I have installed the second floor. My guinea pigs love it. As long as I put food on the second floor, they would like to climb on it. Just a little reminder, If you want to put kitchen area under the second floor, hanging water bottle might be a little challenging. I do not put kitchen area under.

    Great 2nd level

    Shipping was fast and the directions were so easy to follow (thank you so much for the pictures as well). My older piggy loves this - still working on the younger one but I know she will get there soon. The heart design is so cute... thanks so much for creating this 2nd level!

    LOVE it!!

    I received the Midwest Mezzanine today and we LOVE it!! It was so easy to put together and our two piggies went up (with a little nudge and some spinach leaves). I connected 2 Midwest cages, but ordered your cloroplast for the bottom and kitchen area. Thank you so much for creating this addition.
