Piggie Poo recommends that all of guinea pigs are housed in C&C habitats as pet store cages are just too small. Bigger is better, so opt for the largest cage possible.

Pet stores will tell you that small cages are fine. NOT TRUE!

Small cages have been shown to directly contribute to serious health conditions like:

  • Bumblefoot
  • Impaction
  • Emotional distress
  • Boredom
  • Behavioral problems

Ramps & Lofts Are Not Recommended

Piggie Poo does not recommend two-level cages as ramp and lofts are opportunities for falls and injuries. Piggys are ground dwelling creatures and the most important thing to consider when selecting your C&C Habitat is open floor space i.e. square footage.
