What kind of Cage do guinea pigs live in?
5/5 (804836 Views . 402418 Votes)
- Many guinea pig rescue organizations recommend “C&C” cages, which are enclosures made from cubes and coroplast, a corrugated plastic. Plastic tubs, glass aquariums and cages with wire floors are NOT acceptable as guinea pig housing.
Can a guinea pig be in an unheated room?
- Guinea pigs cannot sweat when they become too warm and are particularly susceptible to heat stroke. Don't put your guinea pig’s cage in an unheated room, breezeway, garage or other chilly location. Place the cages in a draft-free area (i.e. away from doors and windows and on an elevated surface). Guinea pigs don’t do well under humid conditions.
What kind of space does a guinea pig need?
- While small animal cages often utilize vertical space to increase living area and encourage climbing, digging and burrowing, guinea pigs do not jump or climb and rely solely on floor space. Ramps and platforms at low heights provide variety, but guinea pigs need room to exercise, even with daily playtime outside of the cage.
Is it OK to keep a guinea pig in the kitchen?
- Noise: Guinea pigs have very sensitive hearing and their cages should not be placed next to stereos, televisions or other loud noises. For sanitary reasons, don't keep your guinea pig's cage in your kitchen or other area where food is prepared.
