Who’s going to take care of the 5 pigs in the big guinea pig cages at home?!!!

Since we announced that we’re going to Hawaii, people have been wondering – who’s going to take care of your five pigs – and Cosmo the Wonder Pig (our dog)?
You can’t just leave them in their big guinea pig cages at home alone!!!
Well, it’s okay. Our two adult children will be home to care for all the pets. They are both attending nearby colleges and they’ve taken care of the pets many times before.

So – bottom line – all is okay. Don’t worry. Our pets will be cared for and will have lots of company and attention from the people they live with every day.

By the way, time is short. If you’re interested in big guinea pig cages, you had better order soon. October is coming fast.

Safety First! Guinea Pig-Proofing Your Home

Sure, you need large cages for guinea pigs. They need room to exercise and move around throughout the day. But they also need dedicated exercise time – time when they get the free-run of a room. But before you let them out of their cage, you need to pig-proof the area. Here’s some tips I found at GoArticles.com…


So, I’m sure you agree, your cavies shouldn’t spend all of their time in their cages for guinea pigs. But, the fact remains, they will still spend most of their time in their cages. So those cages should be good, comfortable, roomy cages. And the C&C cage is the best cage to fulfill this need.

Keep your pigs from getting injured! Your C&C cages for guinea pigs may SO need a bottom!

From time to time, we here at BlueStoneCommerce get questions regarding the need for a bottom on cages for guinea pigs. We’re not talking about the Coroplast plastic “bottom” (litter bin). We are talking about a grid bottom underneath the Coroplast.
Sure, there is the stability and structural integrity issue – but the far more important issue is that of your cavy’s safety and well-being.
Watch this video for a dramatic (and potentially disturbing) consequence of using bottomless cages for guinea pigs

Cages for Guinea Pigs – This one is a really interesting and unique guinea pig habitat…

Like I said, we at BlueStoneCommerce like to look at other cages for guinea pigs from time to time. This one is not practical for most homes – and would be very difficult to build. No idea where this is. The comments say “in Pisac, near Cusco” (which is still no help to me). But, when it comes to cages for guinea pigs, this one is certainly unique!

OTHER PEOPLE’s cages for guinea pigs – Good ideas / bad ideas

Here at BlueStoneCommerce, we like to study cages for guinea pigs – especially homemade ones. Manufactured cages for guinea pigs generally seem to us to be a) too small and b) not really innovative.

Here’s a cage I found on YouTube with a cool floor-plan…



Just a couple no-no’s first. It looks like they used electrical tape to bind some of the grids together. This can get chewed and/or eaten. Secondly, some of the floor areas are covered with wood. Yes, that’s ton’s better than a wire bottom because it won’t harm fragile toes and feet, but wood absorbs urine and other liquids and thus, captures odors. For best performance, flooring should be waterproof and smooth.

One thing I like is the innovative layout. It has two balcony levels – connected by a bridge. BlueStoneCommerce has a very similar floor-plan in a futuristic-looking cage we call the Millennium 200.

Communicating with Cages for Guinea Pigs

As guinea pig owners, we have thought of putting a stereo nearby the cage to soothe the cavies. However, until watching this, we had never considered installing a CB. If cages for guinea pigs had integral CBs, maybe our pigs could stay in contact with their friends on the road…



I wonder – if cages for guinea pigs really had CB radios, would the arguing and shouting keep us up all night?

Autumn is the season to think about new cages for guinea pigs

Fall is the season when we start moving back indoors. After a summer of outdoor activity, it’s time to get prepared for a cozy winter spent inside with our pets. And cages for guinea pigs are an important element in designing a comfortable, safe and healthy set up for your cavies.

And when it comes to healthy environments, nothing is healthier than a large cage with lots of room for exercise and adequate “psychological space”. And C&C cages for guinea pigs are the ideal way to get a lot of cage for the money.
