    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.


    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!

    You've READ the cage dimensions in the description below and you have MEASURED your space and you KNOW that this cage will fit there. Grids are bigger than feet. Our cages are large. Please order appropriately.

    How long will it take? (shipping FAQs)

    Small Cage Dimensions

    • Lower level = 27" x 41" = about 7.5 Square Feet of cage space
    • Upper level = about 2 Square Feet of additional space
    • Total = about 9.5 Square Feet of cage space
    • Exterior: 30" x 44" when assembled = you will need a table space of about 2.5 feet by 3.75 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.

    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

    • (27) 14" Powder coated Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (28) 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™ Small System if you are interested in a cage stand.


    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!


    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?

    • 1-2 guinea pigs. This is the MINIMUM cage size for 1 or 2 guinea pigs. This cage is too small for 3 or more guinea pigs.
    • ONE guinea pig needs at least a 2x3 grid-sized cage. TWO guinea pigs who get along well can also live in this 2x3 grid-sized cage. Although we do recommend a larger cage, this will suffice.
    • 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.

    I have not yet purchased this cage but I am seriously thinking about it. I just have a couple of questions. 1. Is the price really worth it? 2. Is the loft to narrow or small for my piggy to go up there and actually move around? Overall I think that this cage is very reliable based off of other reviews and I will be purchasing it very soon.

    SOOOOOO Cute!!!!!!!! Best Cages Around!!!!

    I haven't gotten this one yet for my baby piggy, but i am thinking about it a lot. I have the 2x4 pink covered cage for my older piggies and they LOVE it. All we need to do is train them to get up and down the ramp. They love their large hay rack from here too! Great cages and Service!!!!!!! Very Impressed! Since my baby guinea pig is small, we wanted to get the smallest cage for her because she surprisingly likes smal spaces but not too small. She is very active and LOVES to popcorn day and night!! I am hoping to get this cage for my baby piggy VERY SOON!!!

    We brought our 2 Guinea Pigs home May 1, and made the mistake of getting the wrong cage. We got the largest one we could find, which in terms of square footage wasn't TOO far off from this one (but still too small)...the main problem was the that the ramp was impossibly steep, even though it was marketed for a guinea pig or 'other small pet'. This cage is so much better, is actually cheaper, much MUCH easier to clean (especially paired with the Fleece Flippers, but even if you don't have them it's still easier!) and is much more attractive. The kids had a great time picking out colors. Oh, and the ramp? After being hesitant for a few hours, they now hop and run up and down. We keep their hay rack, food bowl and water up in the loft area, giving them more room to play 'down stairs'. All in all, a great set-up!

    Perfect Cage Upgrade!

    <p>My piggy, Oscar, is a little over 5 months old now and this cage is the perfect upgrade from the pet store cage that he was quickly growing out of. </p><p>Time it took two of us to put together from opening the box to putting Oscar inside: about 2 hours. It probably could have been faster, but we were trying to make sure it was going to be safe and secure. The grids are sturdy feeling and the connectors hold them together well. I picked black for the grids, it is glossy and smooth. The silver/grey color for the coroplast is exactly the same color as classic duct tape and looks great! The finished cage size is as described. We have it sitting on a table that is 30x48 and this cage fits perfectly on it with only about an inch to spare on the 48 inch side. This cage will be the right size for my single piggy to move around in but he will still need play time out of the cage to reach full running speed.</p><p>I also bought the "kitchen" and it holds the bedding and food about as well as it can. Oscar was so excited when he first got to explore his new house that he popcorned the bedding all over the place! The space was big enough to put his food dish, water bottle, hay, and his wooden house in the tray and leaves a large play area with a fleece floor.</p><p>His old cage had a small ramp and he is an expert at jumping, so the ramp only took about 5 minutes for him to decide it was safe to explore. The only down side I noticed was that the coroplast was scored to have the ramp on the opposite side that I wanted it, so I had to fold the walls backwards to make it fit. But that was only a small bump in the road.</p><p>The coroplast is wonderful for making the cage customized to the piggy's needs. Oscar kept trying to stick his nose over the 6 inch walls to see what was going on, so I trimmed some of the walls to about half the height so he could see easier. I made sure to leave it alone around the bedding so it will still be effective in containing the mess, but in his play area he is enjoying the view.</p><p>It has only been a few hours since relocating Oscar and he is completely at home. He ran and popped all over the place and then crashed next to his food bowl, then next to the ramp, then upstairs, then next to his food bowl again. I am getting the impression that he loves it so much he wants to be everywhere at once!</p>

    Looks Good

    I have not actually purchased one of these cages yet, but they look very nice. I have recently looked into buying my girl a new cage, but none have looked as good as these. Many people that I have asked say that these are very nice cages, and very good quality. Just one question, do you ever have sales????
