    If really don't have the space for a Large cage (it would be better), then the next size down is our intermediate or "Medium" size which is a bit bigger than the small size. To accomplish this size, we must overlap the grids in the middle of the cage. The same applies to a matching cage stand if you go that route. It can make it a little trickier getting fleece items to go with it, but bigger is always better, so if you can't go Large, but have room for a Medium then this is your solution.

    Medium Cage Dimensions

    • Lower level = 27" x 50" = about 9 Square Feet of cage space
    • Upper level = about 2 Square Feet of additional space
    • Total = about 11 Square Feet of cage space
    • Exterior: 30" x 54" when assembled = you will need a table space of about 2.5 feet by 4.5 feet to accommodate this cage.

    Images & Portal Opening

    Please note that some images show our older style of loft which shows a standard grid at the top of the ramp. All deluxe cages now come with TWO Portal Grids. One placed horizontally for the ramp cut out, and one to put vertically at the top of the ramp. The Portal opening at the top of the ramp can be covered if desired with the optional Mini-Grid Portal Guard. The Portal opening allows the ramp to swing up for easier cleaning and access.

    Upper Levels are Good For

    • Providing variety to your guinea pigs to help reduce boredom.
    • Providing a ceiling for the kitchen area below which will give them a better sense of security for relaxing, eating and pottying.
    • 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.
    • Exercises different muscles than flat running, which can help keep them more toned and healthy.

    Upper Level Things to Consider

    • Older, senior guinea pigs typically lose 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 with people.
    • Not all guinea pigs will want to use a ramp. It can take patience (as in days or weeks) 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.

    Flip-Fold Cover

    Our Flip-Fold Covers are designed with you and your guinea pig's safety in mind. We compromise on neither and give you the best of both!

    • Easy
      Our cover design is based on many years of guinea pig experience with many hundreds of guinea pigs. When you are standing in front of your cage, you need to be able to open the cage easily and quickly. You need immediate access along the full length of the cage.

      With Flip-Fold Covers, you only need one hand to open and close our covers, and you don't need something to lean them against to hold them up. Most people have their cages against a wall. Our covers do not require you to rest the cover against your wall, leaving unsightly scratch marks. They rest nicely pushed midway out of the way or all the way back. Or you can just flip the front section over the back section.
    • Strong
      Not only are they easy to use, our custom-designed and custom-manufactured Ultra Rods and Wonder Bars are very high-quality and provide added durability and strength.
    • Safe and Convenient
      Not only are they safe for the guinea pigs, they won't fall down and whack you in the head while you are trying to feed or pick up your piggies or clean your cage!

      In addition, our covers are reachable by the average person who can reach moderately across the cage. You don't have to be super tall to manage the covers safely, so it's safe for a younger person to simply fold back the front half to access piggies quickly.

    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

    • (31) 14" Powder coated Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (28) Connectors in black or white
    • (1) Extendable Ultra Rod Set (extends 38" to 54": 2 rod pieces & 2 end caps per set) in black or white, matching the grid color
    • (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

    Optional

    • 1 Mini Grid with clip and zip ties

    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 Medium Cage Stand 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 2x3.5?

    • 1-2 guinea pigs. This cage is too small for 3 or more guinea pigs.
    • The 2 guinea pigs should be a BONDED PAIR. If you have two new males who have not been together yet in a pet home, then in all likelihood, this cage will be too small. Or if you have two guinea pigs who do not get along -- either they bicker all the time or occasionally -- then this cage is too small.
    • This cage size may not be divided to accommodate two guinea pigs who do not get along, nor is it appropriate for separating two guinea pigs of the opposite sex. It is just not big enough for that.

    Guinea Pigs should have a Friend

    Just a note that guinea pigs are a social, herd animal and are happier and healthier in pairs or groups. If you only have one, please consider the best interests of your pet and adopt a same-sex friend.

    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

    I KNOW this cage will fit in my space!


    I've read the cage dimensions and have measured my space. GRIDS are 14", NOT a 12" FOOT! For example: 2x4 Grids needs 2.5 x 5 FEET of space.

    Nice for my boys, Thor + Pablo!

    The cage itself was excellent, but the cover was very difficult. The loft cover was perfect it worked fabulously but the downstairs cover was a hazard to my piggies. It did not come with the support bar shown and the cover was collapsing on my boys. I was about to order a support bar but luckily my parents had just ordered a new towel rack so I took the old bar and DIYed it.Thor LOVES to sleep in his cozy sack upstairs, while Pablo sleeps in the sun in his cavy kitchen.

    This cage is awesome! Tons of room for the piggies! You could probably put 3 pigs in this with plenty of room. Easy to put together!

    Large and Quick Shipping

    Product:

    I purchased this cage for my two guinea pigs. I placed the order on a Friday and received the cage by Monday - very impressive. The assembly is time consuming, but as long as you read through all of the directions before beginning (which the directions instruct you to do) it is not difficult, just tedious.

    The cage is very large and they both love the room. I have three cats and two very nosy dogs and therefore had to get the covered cage. I was very disappointed with the construction of the cover; I thought it would actually be a secure closure, but it is just overlapping grids that simply lay over the top. They are zip-tied and secured on one side only to allow them to "flip". They do not lock, they do not click into place, nothing. They just lay there. I have to use binder clips to hold it down so my cats cannot open the lid - and they are definitely more than capable of it.

    Overall, I am satisfied with my purchased, just a bit shocked over the quality of the "animal proof" cover.

    Excellent

    This cage is a huge success. I upgraded from a smaller cage for my two guinea pigs, and they love their new, larger home. The ramp works out perfectly and they love running up and down it even though they are going on five years. Just remember, the bars and the coroplast base is not connected, so you must have a space large enough for the bars to rest on as well.

    Great cage but missing a few cover grids

    My two piggies LOVE this cage so far (they've been in it for almost 3 days now) They'll run all around it pop-corning. This cage is VERY BIG, the piggies love the space. They love going up and down the ramp, one of my piggies sometimes naps up there. I use the loft as a kitchen, I bought the small hay rack from this website and put it along the side, my piggies like to crawl underneath it sometimes too. The cover would have been great if I would've gotten all the grids, I only got 7 instead of 11 (I think that is the correct amount as shown on the directions) so I gave the product a 4 star instead of 5. Great cage though!

    Big Cage

    Product:
    Service:
    The description stated this cage for 1-2 guinea pigs, and not enough room for 3. This is a large cage. I only have 2 piggies and there is way more than enough room. I should have opted for the small.
