Let’s prepare the cage for our pet!

So, we have decided we would like a new pet at home. That’s a wonderful decision. But where is it going to live? It is important to accurately prepare your pet new home. First of all, we need to find a right cage for it. Secondly, we need to find a nice spot.

Which cage?

A good cage for Guinea Pigs must have a plastic base, because it is easier to clean. There are also some measures recommended: the minimum size for the cage should be around 3.5 square feet, but if we place inside accessories like the stand, the feeder, some toys etc. we should consider a cage at least 1.5 square feet larger. Guinea Pigs are very sociable and love company, so if we have more than one, it is obvious we need a larger cage too.

Which place?

Let’s move to the right place: a lighted spot is ideal, but it’s necessary that the sun doesn’t get directly on the cage. The ideal temperature would be between 18 and 24 degrees Celsius. It is as well very sensible to put the cage in a place where we spend time during the day. We can both beneficiate from each other’s company.

Finally, we recommend  that  you use safe places in the house, where there are no cables to gnaw, open doors, wholes or hard to reach corners , because they are small and easy to scare and they might get in some difficult place for us to reach ,and  stay there quietly for hours.

Cosy cage

At the base of the cage we put Naturlitter wood or paper, like ecological bed (place it only in half of the cage, choose the place which they mostly use for doing their needs) and on the other half we will put paper Sweet Dreams. This product allows them to borrow, providing a padded and warm base where to sleep and to rest when they need it.

As for the accessories they need: a fixed or heavy ceramic food dish that prevents overturning; bottle with fresh, clean water; a place to hide, like a covered shelter (nest box, cardboard box…) and a hay rack to keep the hay clean and fresh.

With this cage, your new pet will feel at home!
