    Now you can add an upper level to a single-level covered C&C cage! Set on our Cagetopia Wonder Bars, Patios are easily raised or lowered allowing young or older guinea pigs to enjoy exploring an upper level on a ramp with a gentler slope. Also great for all guinea pigs new to upper levels.

    Our Patios are designed to fit within a closed C&C cage with enough clearance for the guinea pigs on both the patio level and the main level underneath as well as an open cage with optional safety grids or windows around the patio perimeter. Just lift the patio for easy cleaning access!

    Patios are shipped with all four sides intact, allowing you to choose where you want the ramp entrance located--you just make a simple cut wherever you'd like--left, right, or in the center.

    Party Patio

    Easy Lift-Off for Cleaning and Access Below!

    Our Patios are only possible because of our EXCLUSIVE, custom-manufactured Wonder Bars! The patio rests on a pair of very strong 1" x 29" steel powder-coated bars. Just lift off the patio and easily pick up the two Wonder Bars for 100% access to the cage below.

    Adjusts to your Guinea Pig's needs

    You can raise or lower the patio to make the ramp slope gentler, making it easier for very young or older piggies to navigate, as well as guinea pigs new to upper levels. Just change where you place the bars to raise or lower the height as necessary.

    Make a Fun Look!

    Choose one of our patterns and cut a wave or castle for a fun look on the front edge of your patio. Email sue@guineapigcages.com for PDF.

    Dimensions

    Our PARTY Patio is 20.5 x 28 inches. Please note that the width is 28 inches, not 27 inches or less. This is because the patios are mid-grid height where there's no connectors. As a result the width of the patio is slightly wider than the base for a better fit.

    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. Ideally, it's better to locate the kitchen under the patio or loft.
    • 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 may lose interest in going up a ramp to an upper level. Some are unable 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 less 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 required cage space for your guinea pigs. Upper levels DO NOT COUNT in determining how much space you are providing. Upper levels are used occasionally and sometimes not at all by some guinea pigs.

    COMPATIBILITY EXCEPTIONS

    • HIGH BACK WALLS: The Wonder Bars used to support the Patio pass through the inner grid holes, so if you have a 10" or 12" back wall on your cage base, you may need to cut that section down (good scissors will work) depending your desired patio height.
    • NEEDS A 2X4 CAGE OR LARGER: Our PARTY size patio is designed to fit inside a 2x4 grid cage or larger.

    My boys favorite place

    Product:
    Service:
    Upon receiving the Party Patio I installed it according to the suggestions on the instructions page. I wasn’t sure if there’d be enough room below or while on the patio (I have the cage cover to keep my cats from jumping in) but figured it’d wait and see what my boys thought. It took minutes for them to run up the ramp & investigate. Since then, the patio has become their absolute favorite place to hang out. I now have 2 beds up there for them to sleep in. They love their patio so much that I have to change the fleece bedding more often than the rest of their palace. I highly suggest this addition to any and every cage.

    Great loft alternative

    Product:
    Service:
    I had a regular loft in the past, but eventually took it down after getting tired of the hassle of cleaning underneath it. With the patio this problem is solved - it's super easy to lift off the coro base and the support bar to gain access underneath for cleaning. The pigs took a little while to adjust to using a ramp again, but now they've mastered it and enjoy going upstairs and having a little extra space when they want to get away from their roommates!

    Fabulous suite for two

    Rating:
    It literally takes ten minutes for my two young guinea pigs began to run from the top to the bottom of their new patio which we transform it in to a beautiful and spacious bedroom with hanging fleece tents. You can say how much they love their new space by how much time their spend there!Rest of the X large cage its use as a playpen for running and exercising.Thanks guinea pig store for making all this possible for our two sweet girls we will be back for more.

    Amazing Product

    Product:
    Service:
    I bought this product for my five girls a week ago and they love it!! I already have a loft but is was becoming a problem with my three senior piggies- too much of an incline for them. So I bought this- much better. They can easily climb up and down. I love it! The patio is the new pigs kitchen area. It easily comes off for cage cleaning- the loft doesn't. I love this product!!
