We have had guinea pigs for about 4 years. Currently have 3 guinea pigs and had expanded a store-bought cage with a ramp down to a playpen so they had a little room to run around, but the setup really took over our entire bonus room.
My daughter asked for a C&C cage for her 13th birthday; I didn't take her seriously at the time and didn't want to have to create such a cage myself. She researched it extensively, found this website, and convinced me to get it for her 14th birthday. We have had this cage for about 2 months now and I can't say enough positive about it. We got a Cavy Bistro to hold food, water and hay at the front of the cage, where it is easily accessible. It has Carefresh bedding, and the rest of the cage uses Fleece Flippers.
Our piggies love to hang out in the balcony in their houses but come down and run around and popcorn like never before. They love their fleece forest and all the room. Best of all, the whole cage tucks into a corner of our room so even though it has larger square footage it fits in the room much better. I feel better about our piggies bedding down on soft fleece instead of recycled paper, too.
The personalized customer service of this site and its sister site, Guinea Pig Market, is really unmatched and I feel good about supporting their mission. Thank you so much for giving us the ability to give our piggies a palace!
