So I've posted these on the guinea pig forum I'm on (Cavy Cages) a while ago but I figured I'd post them on here too.  Maybe they'll give someone some ideas.


The hammock lying flat.


Here is Pixie the guinea pig trying it out. 


This is their cage I made for them.  I made the hammock to match the fleece bedding they have.   It's supposed to be girly.

I want to make one for, Cosmo, my boy guinea pig too but I haven't thought of a theme for his cage yet (he's on his own till he gets neutered).  Any ideas?  I was thinking of a biker or camoflage theme.

that is the cutest thing ever! how did you think of that? i think a camo theme would be really cute in the boy guinea pigs cage or you could also do dinosaurs or like cars and trucks or sports and have like a soccer ball hammock.

that is just awesome. You mind giving me some tips as to how do I make something as clean and organized for my guinea pets? My Chichi is just a mess of newspaper & seeds in a cage, I totally feel bad about that but Im not a very organized guy.

Thanks everybody!

edward_victor if you go to this site: http://www.guineapigcages.com/index.htm you'll find all the info you'll need to make a cage.  They are really inexpensive and guinea pigs love them.  My pigs run, jump and play now, before they just sat there looking bored.  Plus its really fun to make them and accessories to match. 

I guess I should have mentioned that the idea for how to make the cage isn't my idea it's just my design.

I bought a hammock at a petstore for over $20 and it was really ugly colours and a plain shape.  I figured I could sew one for far less and since both my pigs are girls and are named after flowers the idea of a flower hammock came to mind.  My girls love hammocks, not all pigs do though.

Oh my gosh my ferrets would love that. For that matter so would my rat... Do they chew on it? I would be concerned they'd chew on it.
Anyways do you think you could share the pattern and proccess you used to make it? Becasue I have a whole level in my ferret cage that needs decorating.... And my tachi would love that!

I am SO making one of these for my ratties. Granted they are BOY rats, but I doubt they would care too awful much. They love hammocks and always could use another one!

I'll post pics of them if/when I make one! (that is if you don't mind that I use your idea of course.)
