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.

How to organize cages for guinea pigs – watch this video…

Now, this is not one of our BlueStoneCommerce cages for guinea pigs – it’s a completely homemade cage. But look at the storage! Great idea to have the storage directly under the cage – for two reasons. Obvious reason #1: handy, convenient, nearby storage. Not-so obvious reason #2: It raises the cage up to waste level. Easier to interact with your pigs and maintain the cage – and no need for an extra table. Here at BlueStone Cages, we offer several cages for guinea pigs with integral storage bases.

Are big guinea pig cages as large as a Volkswagon?

Wouldn’t your pigs love it if people built big guinea pig cages as large as a Volkswagon? Sure they would. But do you think your pigs would start punching each other each time they passed one? What am I talking about? Watch…



Okay, maybe cavy cages aren’t as large as cars. And maybe – just maybe – pigs don’t talk and drive Winnebagos either. But here’s something that is real: BlueStoneCommerce does build big guinea pig cages – C&C guinea pig cages to be exact.

WARNING!!! Mr. & Mrs. BlueStoneCommerce Going to Hawaii


Bob and Nancy (Mr. and Mrs. BlueStoneCommerce) will be going to Hawaii to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. They leave Oct. 7, 2010 & will be gone for 17 days.


What does that mean to you? It means a smaller selection and limited quantity of guinea pig cages while we’re gone.

We plan to pack a limited number of our popular models before we leave. And we have contracted with someone to fulfill orders for us while we’re gone – so we don’t leave our potential piggy customers high and dry.

But, when the supply is gone – it’s gone. Also – we won’t be able to handle special options – like chew-resist upgrades. We simply won’t be there. So…

If you have a particular guinea pig cage model in mind, or a particular option…
You have until Oct 6, 2010 to order.

Are our guinea pigs spoiled?

I stumble down the stairs still sleepy at 7:00 AM. Our five guinea pigs can hear my footsteps on the stair. Usually Apple is the pig who begins the cacophony of wheeking from the large C&C cavy cage.

They demand food. All five of them wheeking and calling for food. Like young, spoiled children – give me food! Give it to me now!

Are they spoiled? Are they like little children throwing a tantrum? I don’t think so. They’re just hungry little guinea pigs and they’re excited.

Actually, I love waking up to the sound of their wheeking. I think I’m the one that’s spoiled.
