I've made several different cages in the past few years of owning guinea pigs.

This was my first cage for five pigs, it had mesh grids in the front to keep shavings in.

This is the cage I built when I moved and had 4 pigs together (One passed). This was a pain to clean and a pain to build! Once I got more pigs I had to build a bigger cage, anyway. All the levels are connected in this cage.

This cage held a neutered boar and two sows. It was a nice cage.

I copied the design (but bigger)  and built this for the other 4 pigs in my room (we had had 7 at the time)

After adopting a rabbit I moved all the pigs into the living room, and built this for the free-range bunny.

The pigs moved into this when we had less room for cages. I eventually tossed this. It was made out of a wire shelving unit. VERY heavy.

And after that I integrated eveyone into big cages in the living room with the rabbit's cage underneath.

And I also got a cage from Freecycle that was a two-level wire cage. I cut the second level out and used wood from Hope Depot and washers, wing nuts, nuts, and bolts to screw them to make levels for my degus.

Have you seen the movie Garden State? They have a full size hampster condo taking up a good portion of one room in her house. I had to laugh when it I saw your because it reminded me of that scene. You must have happy pets!

Those are awesome. (And people used to make fun of me for the huge cage I had for my rats!)

I'm actually hoping to get a rabbit soon and I've bought the same type of materials to make her cage.

That's really cool but I wouldn't want to clean them.  Tongue

Thanks everybody! Smiley

They are not fun to clean at all! But having the animals made it not so bad.

I've always loved your cages. Especially the one with the nice yellow fleece with the brown stars.  Smiley
