5Are C&C cages safe for baby guinea pigs?
The majority of baby guinea pigs are fine in C&C cages because the correx walls are 15cm high. However there are several ways to baby proof a cage until they have grown.
You can:
Extend the height of the correx walls to block access to the grids Reduce the inner grid hole openings by by overlapping standard grids or buying our exclusive baby bars instead. Baby bars can be used with all age of guinea pig and are 35.5cm with 30 holes by 11 holes.
6Do I need a lid?
You only need a lid for you cage if you need to keep children, cat or dogs out of the cage. Guinea pigs aren’t climbers.
7Can I have a loft with a lidded cage?
When you order and loft and lid, you will receive a low loft which sits within the standard cage walls. The lid will cover the entire cage.
8Do I need nibble guards?
Our nibble guards are designed to help prevent the guinea pigs from chewing on the correx edge. They slide over the top edge of the correx. Chewing the cage edges is often a sign of boredom or needing something to chew. You can minimise this by providing a large cage with a variety of toys and ample grass hay.
9Can guinea pigs use a ramp? Is the ramp slippery?
Most guinea pigs soon start exploring the ramp. The height of the ramp can be adjusted by lowering the loft if necessary. Our ramps are reinforced and have a non-slip surface.
10Can I add / extend to my cage in the future?
You can add lofts, stands, lids and extend your cage in the future.
11Can I buy correx on its own?
We sell the complete cage kits with correx liners. With care the liner should last indefinitely. We can only supply replacement liners to previous customers.
12Can these cages be used outside?
The cages cannot be used outside. We do not recommend housing guinea pigs outdoors and many rescue centres stipulate, in their rehoming agreement, that guinea pigs must be kept indoors. We do have outdoor runs which allow supervised outdoor exploration in mild weather. They are collapsible for easy storage.
13What bedding is suitable?
Many people like to use fleece liners in their C&C cages. These need to be washed and dried at least 3 times with mild detergent before use. DO NOT use fabric softener as this will prevent the urine from soaking away. You need two layers of something under the fleece to absorb the wee. It’s best to use old towels, puppy training pads or mattress pads.

Alternatively you can use wood shavings ( not sawdust as this is too dusty ) and hay.
14What can I use to clean my C&C cage?
Normal pet safe cleaners can be used to clean the cage. White vinegar diluted 50/50 with water is also suitable.
