    The Cagetopia Small Cage with a Narrow Loft is good if you are space-constrained and simply cannot make the Large size work in your area.

    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 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 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.

    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 Cage Kit Includes

    • (18) 14" Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (28) Connectors in black or white
    • 4mm Coroplast bottom in your choice of 15 colors!
      The base and loft are cut and scored so you only have to secure the flaps. (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.)
    • 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 Small 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?

    • 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.

    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.

    Best Cage Ever!

    Product:
    Service:
    I got my two guinea pigs back in July of 2012. My last one just passed away today, and in the past 7.5 years, this cage has really stood the test of time. I HIGHLY recommend this cage. Thanks for keeping my piggies safe for all these years :)

    All-in-one all you need

    Service:
    I recently rescued some piggies and had them in a make-shift cube and fleece setup while finding out what my permanent solution was going to be. Through tons of research, I saw everyone raving about C&C cages. And I can see why. With the cubes, you can expand, downsize, or just completely overhaul the layout of your cage. You can make big squares, long rectangles, lofts, L shapes. You can just have a blast. I personally do not trust my skills with scoring and cutting coroplast, even after looking at all the tutorials across the web. That's where I ran into this shop. With a couple of color choice selections, I was good to go on a fully supplied cage setup without having to think about how many cube sections I need, how many connectors, the math to cut the coroplast. It's a little more expensive going this route, but I am happy to pay the extra knowing that it is all going to be done right while supporting people who are passionate about good piggy care. I would have never thought about expanding up with a loft, either, and it turns out one of the piggies spends most of her time up there. I definitely see myself returning to the cages and market stores to expand in the future.

    Great Cage for my little guy

    Product:
    Service:
    We ordered this cage after speaking with another guinea pig owner who raved about the cage. It was built and shipped in a matter of days. Great service. Once it arrived I had a few question and called customer service and they were very helpful. I put my little guy in his new cage last night and he has been running and popcorning all night and morning. He LOVES his new cage. The open air concept is great. Makes it much easier for us to interact and I feel like he is more part of the family when we are hanging out. He loves the ramp and runs up it to get closer to his human family. My only concern was the material the base was made out of. It is not a hard plastic like the cages you buy at the pet store. You can not hose it off outside but I was told to just scoop the chips out and spray with a solution of water and vinegar. I hope it holds up. That is the only reason I am giving it 4 starts is because I am a little worried if the base will hold up over the years.

    This cage is huge!

    <p>I just got this cage for my two male guinea pigs (cagemates since babyhood) and its HUGE! I think it's too big for two guinea pigs but heck I'm no expert on guinea pigs, trying to get them to use to ramp so far- hilarious (as I place them up there and they slide down so awkwardly) and they're not going up there hope they do as sometimes my eldest Stripe bullies Thorin and they can have their space. So far the upstairs is time out spot. Also love the purple and black together so thank you!</p>

    Great Cage

    Service:
    I got my guinea pigs from one of my sisters friends. She gave me a cage that was way to small for them, so I bought this cage. This cage is perfect for my two guinea pigs. They both love it. They run and jump around all day and night. This cage was the best thing that I bought for my guinea pigs and I highly recommend it.

    <p>We got our first guinea pig ever in August. After doing some research, I realized the store bought cage was not adequate. Due to very limited space I went with the 2x3 grid. It was easy to assemble by myself. My piggy was so happy to have more room to popcorn and run. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.</p>
