The HappyCavy Forever Home for Guinea Pigs

Our home is a 28 square foot (2.6 square meters) C&C cage. Click here to learn more about what a C&C cage is and why it’s totally awesome. Then find out how you can make your own C&C cage.

Metal storage grids can be found at local big-box stores like Walmart, Costco, and Target. We purchased our grids at Target. It’s imperative for your guinea pig’s safety that you only purchase grids that have 9 holes across each side (see what a 9×9 grid looks like). Some newer packages of grids contain 8×8 and 5×5 grids which may be potentially dangerous for your piggie due to the larger hole size.

Coroplast is like plastic corrugated cardboard. It is water-resistent and perfect for the behavioral needs of guinea pigs (if you know what I mean). It is easy to keep clean and sturdy enough to keep its shape for a long time. You can find coroplast usually at art supply stores and sign stores. In fact, we used Fast Signs to buy our coroplast. We paid $30 for a 8 ft by 4 ft sheet of coroplast.

Guinea Pig Cage  

The cage has two levels. The bottom level is used as a multi-purpose “living room”. The top level provides extra space for eating, sleeping, and exploring.

The cage is big enough to provide plenty of room for the guinea pigs to run around until they tire out.
