Modification for timid piggy

Cons:
I thought this looked perfect for my older, arthritic piggies. The lower ramps gave me less concern for my 7-year old who doesn't know he has arthritis. However, he was really scared of the open ledge and wouldn't do more than test out the ramp for a few steps. I used zip ties to attach the decorative dome grid to the base of the ramp and the top cover, making a little arched side rail. He LOVES it now! It's where he zooms when he gets a cookie. His girlfriend (they are both spayed/neutered) tends not to go up there, so it's his "base." They both love the dark hiding spot underneath the perch for sleeping, and I've put a heating pad under their fleece in that area, making it their favorite spot in the whole cage.



My C&C was already put together with zip ties instead of the plastic connectors, so the perch is a little bit wobbly, even after having secured it with a ton of ties. I'm really glad to have the extra support/security of the dome grid to prevent an accident off the ledge.

Will not fit with Mezzanine in Midwest Cage

Being new to guinea pigs I wanted to give my piggy everything. Bought all the enhancements for the midwest cage including the piggy perch. The perch will not fit in the cage if you buy the mezzanine - not enough room. I am just going to save it for future expansions to the cage but think it would be helpful to note that you can not have both mezzanine and perch.



FROM Guinea Pig Cages Store: You're absolutely right! Thank you for pointing this out. We will correct the description and add that the Piggy Perch is too tight of a fit to use with the Mezzanine in the Midwest cage. :)
