Cages for Guinea Pigs – How to Choose One

Several factors should be considered when picking out cages for guinea pigs. The first thought that may come to mind may be to insure that the cage is sturdy and sound so the guinea pig cannot escape. While this is certainly an important criterion, unless your guinea pig possesses the strength of the mighty Hulk, most cages can easily satisfy this requirement.

But there are, however at least four other not-so-obvious factors that should be addressed when choosing cages for guinea pigs. In fact, this article Cages for Guinea Pigs – What Features are Important in a C&C Guinea Pig Cage? addresses these four factors and answers most of the questions you may have in regard to your next guinea pig cage purchase.

One of the criteria discussed in the previously mentioned article is obvious — size. The cage should be spacious enough for your guinea pig(s) to live comfortably and to get adequate exercise. Many new guinea pig buyers (and by that I don’t mean pig buyers from New Guinea) make the “rookie mistake” of buying the standard pet store cage. This tiny little cage is much too small to house a full-grown guinea pig. In a few short weeks, your pig will have outgrown this tiny “baby cage” and will be having difficulty maneuvering around its tiny living quarters. At this point, you may find yourself out shopping for a new cage…

So, whether you are contemplating buying a guinea pig or you have already made the dreaded rookie mistake of buying that tiny pet store rodent cage, you will need to do some research to help you choose a quality guinea pig cage. The article Cages for Guinea Pigs – What Features are Important in a C&C Guinea Pig Cage? can certainly help.  <– CLICK HERE to read it.
