Easy to access your guinea pigs and to feed/clean daily. All on one level so much easier than having 2 tier. It opens at either side ( like a picnic basket ). Room for 2 GP’s, More would be crowded. The base can be put in the washing machine and you can order a spare base. This would be handy if you do not have another cage or run to put them in while base is in machine. I have one of the side gates open and have another run at end. This is my own run. However, I’d expect this company to have additional parts so you can extend the side of cage. All in all pleased with the functionality of this cage. Entry from the roof makes it easier to look after your GP’s. My GP’s are happy too.
Bought for three baby piggies, good quality. Love that I can extend the cage for when they get bigger and the ramps are fab. Only issue is the price point. I would say it’s an investment but if you are looking for a cheaper alternative look on eBay/gumtree etc for c and c cages because it’s better for people who want to have bigger area for their cages for multiple piggies.
I love these cages for my future guinea pigs. The cage is amazing. But if you but two its very difficult to assemble. I tried to take out a grid but that was very difficult and at the end of it I had to change two grids its Hard!. The sturdiness is good but could be better. Overall great cage and would recommend
My Guinea pigs love this cage, it is spacious enough for 2 and they can have their own space away from each other. Not the easiest to put together as the edges of the cage needed opening up with force to allow for them to join together. Otherwise, it is a good product.
This is a great cage and the perfect size! It was extremely easy to set up, and you can tell that it was designed particularly for piggies. I love the fact that it is expandable and I cannot wait to make my piggy's cage bigger over time! I installed a shelf into the 'kitchen' area so that my guinea pig's bowls could be off the floor (plus he loves jumping onto shelves and it makes him get a little bit of exercise to eat) and it also made it so that he can still have the full floor-space of the kitchen area as well.
I do wish that they chose to go with a hard bottom rather than canvas. Although the canvas is completely water-proof, it gets very stained and cannot be cleaned as thoroughly as if it was a hard plastic bottom. Because of this it holds smells (but don't worry, guinea pigs aren't that smelly to begin with). However, it is machine washable.. it would just be easier if it was 100% wipe-able :)
After lots of research, this is a great option for guinea pig enclosures without building something custom made. I considered a "C&C Cage" ("Cubes and Coroplast - look it up, it's a great option). However, many "grid" cube shelving products come in a combo of large and smaller grids sold as a set, with the larger sized grids having holes large enough for a piggie to poke their head through - not safe. Also, the coating on some grid/cube shelving is not safe for guinea pigs who chew their cage bars. The Midwest Expandable Guinea Habitat allows for customisation and the ability to be modular - just like C&C cages. I do not use the canvas bases. In my opinion, these canvas bases are good for storage and portability, perhaps I'd try using it as a sun roof if I use these enclosures for supervised play time outside. I imagine it would end up holding urine odour.. yuck. For a base and bedding, I lay a clear (thick) plastic table cloth on the floor, followed by an absorbent layer, followed by a fleece blanket. This is the absolute best, easiest, cheapest and healthiest bedding/floor option I have found. This is a great enclosure for how I use it. PS - setting it up in a hexagonal shape without the canvas base allows some more room for your piggies compared to the rectangle.
