Panda Veranda

Reach New Heights with our Panda Veranda!

This cage is designed for special circumstances (by the creators of where you have pigs that don't always get along, but need them to live together. If you like, you can change the connecting grids at the bottom to DOOR GRIDS and allow them to *RUN THROUGH* as normal in a 2x4. You just have to be a bit more particular and creative on putting fleece between the cages. This setup will not work with just an open 2x4 on the bottom. It needs supporting grids mid-cage. This setup allows for easy access and cleanup.

The sky is the limit with this custom creation featuring our Outset Wide Loft Trays for THREE levels of fun! Your cavies will love zooming up and over our Piggy Back Ramp which connects a divided lower level to make cleaning a breeze. Our specialty grids have also been strategically placed to provide easy access throughout the cage. Note that this is not for the novice cage builder. ALSO, please note, this does NOT come with specific directions for assembly. It's a time-consuming project (as any 3-level configuration would be), but if you have any questions, we're always here to help and provide additional images. You'll need to use the images here as your GUIDE.

Designed with piggy fitness and happiness in mind, this multi-level creation features our Cavy Cafe Kitchen and our Corner Kitchen for healthy meals and delightful hay piles. Keep things cozy with fleece bedding and colorful accessories in the Pandas fleece collection from Guinea Pig Market for a home your piggies will love to hang around in.

This cage configuration can help with guinea pigs who need more enrichment for getting away from each other and finding their own space. The up and down activity on the ramps helps keep piggies more fit, especially for males in their hind quarters. Ramp action can help prevent impaction in males later in life.

Easy Access with Specialty Grids:

We strive to make the highest quality cages with both piggies and their owners in mind. Our investment in a wide variety of Specialty Grids allows us to get creative when it comes to cavy caging solutions.

Panda Veranda Specialty Grids

Cleaning Made Easy:

Our Panda Veranda features an assortment of custom grids to provide you with easier access than ever before. The lower and upper levels feature our revolutionary Swing Grids and we also used our half grids for a drop-down wall. These unique features make previously undesirable stacked cages easy to clean and realistic to maintain for cavy caretakers who are looking for more vertical space.

Piggy Back Ramp:

We combined our specialty grids with our Piggy Back Ramp to connect the divided lower level and encourage some additional exercise throughout the day. This also makes it easier to block off the lower kitchen area for cleaning. You'll need to flip-up and remove the ramp to slide out the right-hand side for cleaning.

I love this. I have been thinking about how to practically add multiple levels into new design ideas to add more sqft in a 2x4 or 2x5 foot print.

I want to build this for a guinea pig I am getting, but it looks complicated with no instructions.

You are right. It is probably the most complicated setup we have. We do not recommend it to novice cage builders. You have to have the right expectations. Please send us a note on our Contact Us form and let us know what your situation is and we may have some other, possibly better, suggestions for you.

How are the Tall Half Grid and Wide Mini Grids used for the Piggy Back Ramp Entrance? I assume it's to raise the hinge since you're spanning two walls with some distance in-between instead of just one wall but it seems like you would only need one extra grid for that purpose.

The Wide Mini Grid is 4x5 inner squares, 6 3/8 x 8 inches. The Tall Half Grid is 5x9 inner squares, 7 13/16 x 14 inches. The specs are also listed on those items. And yes, it's just one Wide Mini-Grid needed. 2 was a mistake and I've updated it. Thanks.

Could this be adapted into a 2x3? I just wonder if it will be enough room for the piggies to find their own space of needed. How many pigs would you recommend for this set up?

If you mean the whole thing down to a 2x3 size, most definitely not. If you mean each side upsized to a 2x3, definitely yes, with a little extra support via our support rods. That's what I personally have right now for my two pigs. They've got the equivalent of 2 jumbos! But this cannot be made any smaller. It would be physically impossible and not appropriate for the guinea pigs. 3 pigs in the setup as shown would be the most I would put in this layout.

Thanks! I was referring to each individual area being upgraded.

Great, then yes, no problem with a little creativity. I added a support bar under the suspended 2x3, cable-tied just underneath it for support and to prevent sagging. I also made mine with two door grids on the bottom for full run-through ability and I just overlap some thick fleece on the bottom to bridge the cage wall gap. I folded my coro walls flat rather than doing a ramp over them. Better for the pigs on running around.

Any suggestions on how to add a cover to each level? I have a cat too in our home

Not really. This is one of the few that you should not get if you need it covered. Too difficult with the outset ramp. Sorry.

I am confused about the measurements of this cage. Would it be able to fit in a 24x48 inch space?

NO. No C&C cage will fit in that space. It's really too small of a space for guinea pigs. All C&C cages need 30" of width. The smallest C&C cage (2x3 grid) cage needs 30"x44". The cage pictured above needs 30" x 60" or 2.5 feet by 5 feet.

We would like to order this set up for our Guinea Pigs but we want to expand it so that the bottom floor is a 2x6 and the 2nd and 3rd floors each 2x3. I am trying to figure out what additional panels I need. It looks as through some are regular, some are the swing panels and some are the half swing ones? Are you able to clarify for me? Also if we need to take the ramps out are their doors/covers to block to opening that the ramps leave? Thank you very much.
