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.

In contrast, the homemade units were a bulky and heavy conglomeration of two-by-fours, chicken wire and galvanized hardware. Back then, that ugly beast of a cage was called a guinea pig hutch. Back then pet store cages were mainly used to keep animals inside and hutches were used to house them outside.

Today, things are different. Yes, the grand division still exists between manufactured and homemade or home-assembled guinea pigs cages.  Yes, the old undersized, manufactured, pet store guinea pig cage is still around — a testament to the “old days” — those days when men were men and guinea pigs were mistreated little rodents.

But the old chicken wire guinea pig hutch has become quite uncommon in the guinea pig world. It is generally acknowledged that guinea pigs are not hearty enough to stand up to the temperature extremes encountered in North America. So relatively few choose to house their cavies outside permanently. In addition, most people find that bare two-by-fours and chicken wire often has a tendency to clash with the existing décor in their homes. As a consequence, few people are using wood and chicken wire enclosures to house their guinea pigs.

So the old wooden and wire beast has been essentially replaced by its newer, sleeker (dare I say “prettier”) cousin — the cubes and Coroplast (C&C) cage.

It’s easy to see that C&C guinea pigs cages offer all of the advantages of the old wood and chicken wire hutch — economy, scalability, customizability, a lot of cage for the money, and the plain old satisfaction that comes from building something yourself. But it goes beyond this. It is also sleeker, lighter, more sanitary, easy to clean and (dare I say it again?) “prettier” than do-it-yourself cages of yesterday.

    I’m with you, I’m around 18 wks pngraent. I also read the vaccine has mercury in it, and other things I don’t want near me or the baby. I know what the media is saying, but they lie a lot for the lefts sake, so I don’t trust them. I have been reading stories from actual people who are sick as dogs from the flu shot.But at the same time, if I knew it was safe, and could save me and the baby, I would take it. I read even nurses and doctors don’t want to take it, but expect us to. Where you are in N.Y. health care workers were protesting the shot, because they were told they would loose their job if they didn’t. Why would the gov’t have to force something if it’s so great?.Something came to my mind about if there was a connection in Obamas crappy healthcare take over and this so called flu emergency??? Read about Judy Roberts story on youtube, how she was paralyzed from the swine flu shot back in the 70 s. More people died from that vaccine than the actual flu, so I just don’t know.

  35. Great common sense here. Wish I’d thought of that.
