What 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.
But what about those manufactured pet store cages? Aren’t they just fine? I mean – we see them everywhere. They have to be okay. Don’t they?
No they don’t. See for yourself.
Just look inside one of those manufactured cages. Imagine plopping your full-grown adult guinea pig in there. Clearly, she takes up a significant amount of space in there. Now add a nestbox, a hay rack, a water bottle and a feed dish — just to make things more comfortable for your pigs. There’s no room to move around — no room for exercise — no room to run, romp or roam. And that’s without toys.
It’s been said before: Making your pig live in one of those cramped pet store guinea pig cages is like someone making you live your entire life in your bathroom.
And to make matters worse — there you were sitting quietly in your bathroom habitat and your owner decided that it would be a splendid idea to put a kitchen table and a refrigerator in there with you — just to make things more comfortable for you. Aren’t you beginning to feel just a little like a laboratory guinea pig stuffed into a rodent cage?
There’s supposed to be at least two pigs in there.
