    Cagetopia XL (2x5 grid) covered C&C cage with Narrow (1x2 grid) Loft. The assembled cage footprint is 30" x 76”. We use durable, powder-coated grids (not vinyl), and our Coroplast bases are secured with reusable, plastic rivets (not tape). Suitable for 2-4 guinea pigs.

    Loft access is via our reinforced Coroplast ramp with 3.25" side walls -- proven safe for all guinea pigs providing them security while you can see the fun action. The top edges are reinforced to prevent chewing. The top flap is well-secured to the loft with our Cagetopia Wire Ramp Hooks for easy maneuvering.

    When ordering a covered cage and the Kitchen Suite or a Cavy Canopy, be sure to choose the Under-cover version of the Canopy. ALSO NOTE: although we don't show it in some photos, the opening at the top of the ramp can be covered (below) -- for curious cats -- with our optional Mini-Grid Portal Guard on this item.

    XL Cage Dimensions

    • Lower level = 27" x 71" = about 13 Square Feet of cage space
    • Upper level = about 2 Square Feet of additional space
    • Total = about 15 Square Feet of cage space
    • Exterior: 30" x 76" when assembled = you will need a table space of about 2.5 feet by 6.5 feet to accommodate this cage.

    Images & Portal Opening

    Please note that some images show our older style loft with a standard grid at the top of the ramp. This grid has been replaced with a Portal Grid which allows a larger opening for the ramp to swing up for easier cleaning and access. The Portal opening at the top of the ramp can be covered if desired with the optional Mini-Grid Portal Guard.

    Upper Levels are Good For

    • Reducing boredom by enriching the spaces available.
    • Provides a covered area over the kitchen to provide a sense of security which encourages its use.
    • A get-away area for some guinea pigs who may not get along.
    • Exercises different muscles than flat running, which can help keep them more toned and healthy.

    Cagetopia Flip-Fold Covers

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

    • Provides quick and easy access along the full length of the cage for a person of average height using only one hand.
    • Rest the cover midway back on the cage, all the way back, or the front half can be flipped on top of the back section. Leaning on other objects is not necessary.
    • Reinforced strength with our custom, high-quality steel Cagetopia Ultra Rods and Wonder Bars where needed.
    • Safe and convenient for both you and your guinea pigs.

    Coro Height Options

    • 6" walls on all four sides. This is the perfect height for keeping bedding contained, visibility to pigs, good airflow, and safety.
    • 10" walls on all four sides for Hedgehogs only.
    • 12" long back wall only, three sides are 6". May help keep hay and bedding kickout more contained with active guinea pigs, especially when not using fleece, but generally 6" walls are just fine.

    NOTE: High walls all the way around a cage are not recommended for guinea pigs as it blocks too much airflow as well as your visibility.

    Deluxe Covered Cage Kit Includes

    • (37) 14" Grids in black or white (powder-coated & SAFE inner holes 1 3/8")
    • (2) Portal Grids
    • (36) Connectors in black or white
    • (1) Extendable Long Ultra Rod Set (extends 38" to 64": 2 rod pieces & 2 end caps per set) in black or white, matching the grid color
    • (2) C&C Wonder Bars for support (29"x1" custom-designed by us for C&C Cages) in black or white, matching the grid color
    • (1) 27" Ramp in Coroplast color of your choice and edging to match grid color with grey Carpet.
    • (1) Pair of Ramp Hooks for ramp attachment
    • 4mm Coroplast bottom in your choice of 16 colors!
      The base is pre-cut and pre-scored with pre-punched holes to secure flaps using snap-in plastic rivets (not tape). Coroplast base is creased and folded for shipping, which creates an indented "crush" line. This does not affect the functionality of the cage. It's barely noticeable when fully assembled.
    • Rivets for fastening all coroplast flaps
    • 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 XL Cage Stand if you are interested in a cage stand.

    How many Guinea Pigs will fit in a 2x5?

    • Up to 3 adult guinea pigs comfortably. It varies a bit depending upon your group. This is actually the recommended size for 2 males. Males typically need a bit more room than females. They need space to get away from each other when they want to.
    • It would be possible to house a larger, well-bonded group of 4, perhaps as many as 5, but that would really be pushing it.
    • ONE guinea pig needs at least a 2x3 grid-sized cage. This cage could temporarily be divided to accommodate splitting a bickering pair or separating a male and female. You just need a Cage Divider or our "Wall of Silence" down the middle of a 2x5 to instantly create two 2x2.5 grid cages. But, as we really recommend a 2x3 for even one guinea pig, using this cage to separate them should be a temporary situation.

    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.

    It's already great!

    Product:
    Service:
    Just last night I assembled my XL with the narrow loft for my two boars, Elmer and Winston. The assembly took me quite a while, but my order was quite large (I ordered a kitchen as well) and the lower lid took a little bit to construct. Once I got half of the lid constructed, the other half was very easy.

    My boys were cramped in a Midwest habitat. They are ten months old and near their full size. Although they are a bonded pair of brothers and generally get along very well, I could tell they were getting impatient with each other.

    After a few minutes of cautious sniffing, Winston broke into spasms of popcorning pleasure. He even bounced off the coroplast wall! It was very amusing.

    The amount of increased activity I've seen already is really impressive. I've seen piggy trains, popcorning, jumping, and even running! Once they discovered the ramp, both of them were climbing up and down. There is room for their toys, hides, and beds with room to spare! I can tell this cage is going to be very beneficial to them.

    I have a cage stand on the way and I will say that I am glad about that. The far corner under the loft is hard for me to reach, and I think some cage height will help with that.

    Thank you!
