    Cagetopia XL (2x5 grid) covered C&C cage with Wide (2x2 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 2-5 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.

    WIDE LOFT POSITION

    While we show the wide loft straight up and down over the cage, we actually recommend OFFSETTING it by one grid (shown here) as you can't really reach all the way to the back corner for good cleaning. Please select the Offset Loft Support Kit option on this item below.

    OR, our French Doors offer some additional access, but it takes more effort and is still a challenge retrieving your pigs as they'll run to where you can't reach them. It's better to offset the wide loft by one grid length if you have the space.

    XL Cage Dimensions

    • Lower level = 27" x 71" = about 13 Square Feet of space.
    • Upper level = about 4.5 Square Feet of additional space
    • Total = about 17.5 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" wall on one long side as shown. Three sides are 6". May help keep hay and bedding kick-out more contained with active guinea pigs, especially when not using fleece, but generally 6" walls are just fine.

    • For a 12" wall on a short END (behind a Kitchen), we recommend our Backsplash, which is removable for cleaning.
    • 12" back walls are NOT compatible with Patios, Lookout Lounges, Cage Dividers, Piggy Perches, or Midwest Mezzanines (without cutting into the Coroplast back wall -- doable).
    • 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

    • (40) 14" Grids in black or white (powder-coated & SAFE inner holes 1 3/8")
    • (2) Portal Grids
    • (38) 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
    • (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 cable 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.

    Bought this cage for our 2 guinea pigs! They loved it! It is so much bigger than I thought it would be which is a good thing. So much room for the pigs to run around in. When finally finished putting together, put piggies in. They walked around and checked everything out and even went up the ramp all by themselves!!
    Had to get a covered cage because we have cats. It is very sturdy! The cat jumps on top and like to sleep. I have this cage on a table and doesn't move or shake.
    Their customer is very good! I only received 1 support bar. Contacted customer service and received a reply right back. They mailed the bar and extra wire tires out to me very fast!
    If you looking for a bigger Cage, this is it!

    Room to pop all over here... Don't forget the stand though and double the stand order if you have larger than a small dog...(Have medium size dogs and 2 cats and the piggies seem unfazed and well protected from the other critters). My cats cannot find comfort on top and have given up the curiosity the piggies create... Multiple packages in delivery but this is expected for this large of a delivery... Well done!

    Love this cage, I got it for my one guinea pig, Apollo. Hoping to get him a buddy soon.

    The cage is good. A bit difficult to put together, I was given the instructions for a large cage instead of the extra large cage I had gotten. And had to buy more zip ties for the mistakes I made. If you get this. Have tape and zip ties. And be prepared for hard work. Took me 5 hours to make this cage! But that could just be me aha! Get thus cage! It's so nice! Here's a picture of mine. ( sorry for how blurry it is, it's so big I had to stand on my bed!) https://fbcdn-photos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/s720x720/295633_504257016276994_1351389198_n.jpg


    And my guinea pig uses the ramp! He loves the loft! The ramp is a little steep but he's okay going up it. :3
