Default The guinea pigs: new home and new pics!

So, I've built a cubes & coroplast cage for the piggie sisters. It's still smaller than I'd like, but it's an upgrade from what they were in. I'll add a second level eventually and they'll have more room to roam. For now, they love the space and were hopping about while I was working today.

The bottom area is going to be storage for some of the stuff in my office. Dual purpose!

The whole thing.


Close up. The blue coroplast is covered in "under the sea" stickers that look really awesome. I've since removed the rainbowy shelter for more running space.


Mabel!


omnomnom spinach!

omnomnom.


Aaand the one decent pic I got of Sable. She's antisocial.


No. Iz not coming out. Ur annoying.


Done!

Thanks! And I assume you mean the blue part? It's coroplast - a type of signboard that's inexpensive at most big home stores like Rona and Home Depot. It's essentially plastic cardboard - durable and easy to wash when changing bedding.

Looks small for my liking, but you have very beautiful Guinea Pigs.

It's small for my liking too, if you read my post. I will be expanding it.

I want Mabel.

I don't even really like piggies, either. . . she's just so cute.
