2x3 Colonial guinea pig cageWhat is the most important factor when selecting guinea pig cages? Space. Your piggies need room to run, room to romp – that’s right – room to roam. The minimum space recommended for two pigs by many guinea pig rescue organizations is 10.5 square feet. And since you should always keep at least two guinea pigs together (they’re social animals and need company); you should never be considering a cage any smaller than 10.5 square feet.

2x4x3 Colonial Guinea Pig Cage with StorageAre you considering buying a guinea pig cage? Perhaps you should consider building your own cage – either from a kit or from scratch. With cubes and Coroplast (C&C) technology, you not only get a lot of cage for the money; you have the freedom to design and build the exact cage you want with custom innovative features.

Milllennium 200 guinea pig cageWhen I was a little kid, there were virtually two types of guinea pigs cages — manufactured and homemade. The manufactured cages were those tiny store-bought wire cages that would have looked more at home stacked in an animal testing research laboratory than they did housing a cherished family pet. They were small, lightweight and compact — too compact.

2x3x2 Mini-Terrace Guinea Pig CageCan you remember seeing a guinea pig hutch when you were a kid? Remember that one kid (maybe it was you) that had that old wood and chicken wire beast-of-a-cage behind the house — or maybe behind the detached garage. Or perhaps it was a rabbit hutch. Whatever it was, chances are that poor little animal had a hard life trying to survive outside in most regions of the United States.

Well we survived the attacks by the insidious malicious software hacker agents of evil. That is to say, if you’ve visited our guinea pig cage site over the past few days, you may have noticed that we were hijacked by malicious software.

You may have seen the Google Attack Page. And you may also have seen me – waving my fist in the air, cursing and throwing a hissy fit of epic proportions… or not.

Yep! That’s right – was hijacked for the past couple days… Maybe you noticed…

Road Trip! All our stores are CLOSED (for now). We’re on our way to Great Smoky Mountain National Park. But, no worries. We’ll be back in a week. We’ll put our cages up for sale again during the weekend of May 18-20 and begin shipping the following Monday.

We’ve had problems with our flights…

We’ll get home on Monday the 12th of March, 2012 instead of the planned Sunday March 11. But we still plan to get those C&C guinea pig cages out ON TIME… We’ll do our best!!!

Yep, We’re in Hawaii!!!

That means that all of the BlueStoneCommerce guinea pig cage operations are closed down for a couple weeks!!!! This time we’re taking our college-age kids with us for part of the vacation. But don’t worry about all the pets (five pigs, one dog [Cosmo the Wonder Pig] and the two frogs). We have hired one of our kid’s friends to house-sit and take care of the BlueStone domestic menagerie. So the animals will all have care, feeding and companionship while we are sunning our buns in the Aloha state.

You just bought your first guinea pig. You have all intentions of being a conscientious owner. You want to treat your guinea pig “right”. And, most of all, you don’t want to “mess up” and do the wrong thing. But there are so many things to know in order to get started—and so many little things to buy. And the first item you need to consider is a new home for your new pet. And with so many guinea pig cages for sale, how do you know which one to choose?

Yes, we’ve been there. Many years ago, we bought our first guinea pig. And we “messed up”. We’re not bad people. We just simply did what other uninformed new owners do—we bought a pet store cage. Everyone buys them. You see them everywhere. They must be good. Or so we thought…

When you think of a guinea pig cage, what’s the image that immediately comes to mind? Of course, it’s that tiny little factory-manufactured rodent cage that we always see in pet stores.

We’ve been sellers of large, comfortable and healthy C&C guinea pig cages for several years. We deal with these non-traditional cages on a daily basis – and yet – when you mention the words “guinea pig cage” the image of the small, cramped pet store rodent cage is still the first to come to our minds.
We’ve been conditioned. Since we’ve been small, we’ve seen guinea pigs housed in these small cages. We saw them at friends’ houses, at relative’s houses and in stores. And, if we were lucky enough to have a pet guinea pig as children, this was probably the cage that our parents bought for us.

Space-saver cages for guinea pigs are becoming more popular these days. In fact, one of our top-selling guinea pig cages just happens to be the Mega Tower (shown below) – one of our space-saver cages for guinea pigs.

The Concept Behind Space-Saver Cages for Guinea Pigs

Mega-Tower-Space-Saver-Cages for guinea pigsMost people have the wrong idea about space-saving. To them space-saver means “less space”. Space-saver means “smaller”. But not to us.

The concept behind BlueStoneCommerce’s line of space-saver cages is to deliver a roomy and spacious cage in a product form that can fit in a small footprint.

Yep. It’s a good idea – but not one we can really say we originally invented…

guinea pig cageTomorrow we fly… and so can your pigs.

That’s right. Tomorrow (Saturday Feb. 19, 2011) we hop on that plane for home. Bye, bye Florida… hello Michigan.

Our guinea pigs must have woken up and seen their shadows because we still have a few more weeks of winter in our future.

But, bad news for us means good news for you (and your pigs). Because we’re going home, we’re ramping our guinea pig cage inventories back up from vacation levels.

You guys are amazing! The guinea pig cages we built for shipment during our vacation are going far faster than we anticipated.

Neither here nor there

“Here”? “There”? Don’t know, don’t care - either way – we’re not home. All I know is that for the first time in weeks, I can look out the window and not see snow. I see white – but it’s not snow. When I lay on the ground, I make sand angels - not snow angels (sadly, my sandman wasn’t much to look at).

So now, as I write this, we’re one hour behind (time zone) and 30 degrees ahead (heat zone) of our home in Michigan… and that’s a good thing.

Don’t get me wrong! I like the snow. But 12 inches in one day is just too much. WE’RE OUTTA HERE! Bob and Nancy (Mr. and Mrs. BlueStoneCommerce) are headed to sunny Florida for a week.

We leave Feb. 12, 2011 & will return Feb 19.

We’re going back to Panama City Beach – had so much fun there last year,we’re going again. See for yourself. Here’s a VDO from last years trip…

What’s that – hives? A rash? What’s going on?

Yep. This holiday season, we’ve had two households find out that their kids were allergic to guinea pigs when they handled the little critters at the store. They had each ordered a guinea pig cage in advance from BlueStoneCommerce and now they were stuck.

Another bought a guinea pig cage from us after self-confessed hours of study and deliberation on our website. After receiving their cage, they found it was too big to fit in the location they had chosen for it. (“It’s a lot bigger than it looks in the picture”.) So now they were stuck.

No problem. With our 30-day guarantee of satisfaction, we refunded their purchase price and they returned the cages. Nothing wrong with the cages. They weren’t returned because they were defective or broken. They just didn’t fit the customers’ needs.

Nothing wrong with the cage – their kid was allergic to guinea pigs. Nothing wrong with the cage – they just measured or estimated wrong. Not our fault – yet we took it back. Why?

We are not in business to make money at all costs. If we were, we’d be selling drugs, assassinating people for money or holding up liquor stores. (Those certainly pay a lot better than guinea pig cages).

Yes – of course we are doing this to make money. We have five guinea pigs to support (and, oh ya, two kids in college). But we’re also in it to create happy, satisfied customers. We don’t want to force a cage on someone who doesn’t want it. We want happy pigs and happy owners. Simple.

And our eBay feedback tells us that we are succeeding.

One problem with buying online is that you can’t touch, feel, hold and examine the object you are buying. So it feels like you’re taking a big risk to buy online.

Hopefully our guarantee takes that risk out of it for you.

Just return the cage in the condition which you received it so we can resell it. That’s all we ask.

It doesn’t have to be our fault. It can be your “fault” or no one’s fault. Your kid can be allergic, you can make a measuring mistake, you can change your mind, you can tell us you thought it was an aquarium, you can tell us your pig was abducted by aliens - we don’t care.

If you’re not happy, return it within 30-days. Why are we so confident that we offer this (and most others offer 7-days)? Because we get very few returns. Almost everyone is happy with the guinea pig cage we ship them. Don’t believe us? Read our feedback.

We like happy pigs. We like happy customers. I think we’ll leave the liquor store holdups to the pros.

Why not take a look at our unadvertized, money-saving special offer?
(It’s okay. You’re protected by our 30-day money-back guarantee – even if your pig is abducted by aliens)…

Yep. You read that right. This post has absolutely nothing to do with guinea pigs, guinea pig cages, cavy cages, rodent cages – or even animals in general. It’s a holiday wish from us…

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from BlueStoneCommerce!!!

And, we wanted to give you some music. But… if you know anything about us, you know that we try to be innovative and creative in all things we do. So, we are breaking with tradition and are offering a song for the holidays that is not a holiday song. Here’s why…

Why do we play holiday music? To raise our spirits – to get us in a good mood – to make us happy. That’s what holiday music should do.

This video my son found on YouTube should do just that!

Think of it as Bluestone Commerce HOLIDAY MUSIC.  Ha!

And now… a musical selection…

Earlier today, I sent out an email announcement saying that if you needed a cavy cage, while we’re vacationing in Hawaii (Oct 6, 2010 – Oct 24, 2010), we still had all of our BlueStoneCommerce models in stock. Well, guess what?
Bad News: We just sold the very last 2×4 Colonial model. No more of this particular cavy cage model available until Oct. 25, 2010! (Yes, they’re going that fast).
Good News: As of today, we still have the 2×4 Colonial with storage in stock. (Same as the 2×4 Colonial but with a very handy integral storage pedestal built in to the bottom level).

While we are here in Hawaii, we are working to keep your pigs happy – although working here doesn’t really feel like working as you can see in this VDO:

So, in the mean time, you may want to get the cage you’re interested in before they are picked over and sold out. All models except one are still available (but some models are running low).

ACT QUICKLY and get, not only the cage you want – but Save Money with our Unadvertised Internet Discount – just CLICK on the BUTTON below:

Nancy and I are indeed enjoying ourselves in Hawaii. But we are still in contact with “civilization” as you know if you have sent us an email in the past few days. We are still answering emails and we are still selling cages.

So, if you need a cavy cage we still have a large selection and fairly large inventory of cages.


Although, as of this writing, we have already sold seven of our 30 original cages. So they are going kind of fast – and the selection will become more and more limited as time goes on. But, no need to fear… Remember…

We will be back in town and fully engaged on October 25, 2010.

 Until then, I think we’ll just go fly around Kauai. (See if you can spot the waterfall that they used in the movie Jurassic Park)…

So, yes, we’re away from home. But, because we worked hard to make prior arrangements, you can still get a cavy cage from us by visiting one of our online stores.

Are you keeping your cavy in a rodent cage that might be more commonly seen in a laboratory than in a family home? If so, it’s not your fault – until now.

The standard rodent cage or guinea pig cage that you see at pet stores and department stores sell is much too small to provide a physically and psychologically healthy environment for your guinea pig. You may have heard me say this before – it’s equivalent to you living your entire life in your bathroom. There’s no room to exercise, no room to move about comfortably and there is an ever-present sense of confinement.

As I said earlier, if this is the case at your house, it’s not your fault because those are the cages that are displayed and sold by all of the big retailers. These cages are the default cages offered when a new guinea pig is sold. In fact, these cages are often the only cages offered when a new pig is sold.

But, if after reading this article, your cavy continues to live in a small, confining rodent cage, you can no longer claim ignorance. If your guinea pig is not in a cage that is at least 7.5 sq. ft. – you can no longer claim innocence. It’s all on you now.

Of course, an economical way to get a cage this large is to get or build a C&C cage. No – you won’t find them in pet stores. Where can you find one? Well, admittedly I am biased, but I think the best place is here at BlueStoneCages. And here’s an additional bonus…


That’s all you have to do to SAVE MONEY on a guinea pig cage deal. Why not CLICK on the Button below and at least HAVE A LOOK at the SPECIAL MONEY-SAVING DEAL we have for you…

Looking for a cavy cage? You can still get one even when we’re on vacation. For details, CLICK HERE–> Get a cavy cage while we’re in Hawaii.

Forget the previous post about Going to Hawaii – We are GONE!

What does that mean to you? Well, before we left, we packed up 30 cages of different varieties and we arranged with our great UPS guy to ship them for us as necessary. So…

1. YES! CAGES ARE STILL AVAILABLE while we’re gone.
2. We have a limited number of cages. When they’re gone – they’re gone. Sorry.
3. We have a limited number of each cage model. When particular models are gone – they’re gone. Sorry again.
4. We’ll be back in full stride on October 25, 2010.
5. That’s it… I’m going snorkeling…


As I write this post - we are in Hawaii right now. I’m not bragging  – I’m just passing along some information. For those who are interested – here’s us getting to Honolulu…

Sorry for the inconvenience – but I’m sure you understand – and, I’m sure, so do your pigs.

By now, you have to know the story. Small cages for guinea pigs are out – big guinea pig cages are in. It’s a fact. People (people like you and me) are becoming more educated about animal and pet care.

Sure, years ago, we had an excuse for stuffing our pets into tiny cages—ignorance. That’s right. We didn’t know any better.

When I was growing up, we didn’t fully understand nutrition and exercise for humans—let alone for our pets. Our parents were stuffing us with fried foods, whole milk and red meat because, back then, it was good for us. They didn’t know any better. And pet stores were selling small lab-rat cages for guinea pigs—and we bought them. Again, we didn’t know any better.

I stumble down the stairs still sleepy at 7:00 AM. Our five guinea pigs can hear my footsteps on the stairs. Usually Apple is the pig who begins the cacophony of wheeking from the large C&C cavy cage.
They demand food. All five of them wheeking and calling for food. Like young, spoiled children – give me food! Give it to me now!
Are they spoiled? Are they like little children throwing a tantrum? I don’t think so. They’re just hungry little guinea pigs and they’re excited.
Actually, I love waking up to the sound of their wheeking. I think I’m the one that’s spoiled.

Mr. & Mrs. BlueStoneCommerce going to HawaiiBob and Nancy (Mr. and Mrs. BlueStoneCommerce) will be going to Hawaii to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. They leave Oct. 7, 2010 & will be gone for 17 days.

What does that mean to you? It means a smaller selection and limited quantity of cages while we’re gone.

We plan to pack a limited number of our popular models before we leave. And we have contracted with someone to fulfill orders for us while we’re gone – so we don’t leave our potential piggy customers high and dry.

But, when the supply is gone – it’s gone. Also – we won’t be able to handle special options – like chew-resist upgrades. We simply won’t be there. So…

If you’ve been following us on our BlueStone Commerce site or on one of our YouTube channels, you know that we have five pigs in our family. We get emails, YouTube comments, and blog comments on a regular basis asking us the names of our pigs. So here they are:

The cages that pet stores try to pass off as healthy and suitable guinea pig habitats are generally neither healthy nor suitable. Those small pet store cages are usually designed to meet the old two to four square-foot guinea pig cage design standards. These standards are not there to satisfy your guinea pigs’ needs. They are there to satisfy the financial needs of the cage manufacturer and the pet store.

It’s a simple fact. Smaller guinea pig habitats are cheaper to ship and warehouse than larger cages. Do the analysis yourself.

You’ve already got your cage, pellets, hay, water bottles, and all the other necessary guinea pig supplies you need to make your pig feel right at home.  It’s one of the best little guinea pig habitats you could have set up. It truly looks like the perfect place for eating, drinking, sleeping, and of course pooping. Although it may be true that your cage may be fit for even the most high maintenance pigs, life in the same cage day after day can get quite dull for any pig. So what can you do to help enhance your pet’s comfortable quarters as well as keep him entertained?

What are the things you consider when looking at guinea pig cages for sale? Color? Price? An aesthetically-pleasing design? Different People choose cages based upon different criteria. However, one extremely important factor is often overlooked.

Why use C&C (Cubes and Coroplast) materials for building a guinea pig cage? There are many reasons. It allows your cage to be customizable. In other words you can design your cage to suit your living space, number of guinea pigs or even the color of your décor. You can add or even invent new never-seen-before features. And you can build it as tall as you want (within reason).

Yes — it’s no secret. BlueStoneCommerce has C&C guinea pig cages for sale. What’s our motivation? Let me give you a little history.

Because most pet stores don’t carry big guinea pig cages, many guinea pigs end up in a home that is much too small to promote good health. Your doctor advises regular exercise as well as a good diet for your health and well-being. And the situation is no different for your guinea pigs. They need exercise on a regular basis and those tiny department store rodent cages are definitely not the place to get it.

The fitness craze has been with us since the 70s. Many people are hooked on an exercise program. So first thing in the morning — or perhaps after a hard day’s work — they need to get in an exercise session. So they’ll change into a t-shirt and shorts, put on the running shoes, and head down to the… bathroom? Closet? Laundry room?
