Advantages A nice cage that comes with a starter kit.
Disadvantages Unsure whether it will last the "boys"!
When my husband decided he was going to buy my children a guinea pig each, we were complete and utter novices in the way of small animals, so much so that we did what we normally wouldn’t do, and listened to the attendant serving in the store at the time of purchase, though due to this being a last minute decision we decided this was the way to go at that point.We did do everything a little backwards, picking the guinea pigs first, then going to pick a cage and all the accessories that go with them, though there would have been no point surely if we didn’t like the pigs on offer!
Due to us buying two guinea pigs we were advised that a larger cage be purchased to give them room to run about, and with this being an indoor cage too it obviously had to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye also.After much perusing we decided that the best cage for us, and one that was the best price too was the “Ferplast 100 guinea pig and dwarf rabbit cage”, more for the fact that you also get a basic set up pack with the cage too, consisting of feeding bowl, water bottle an now (though wasn’t available when we purchased our cage) also a feeding cage that hangs from the bars themselves.
The cage’s dimensions are - L95 x W57 x H46cm, making this the ideal size for two guinea pigs or one dwarf rabbit.The bottom plastic tray of the cage is fully removable for ease of cleaning, though find it just as easy to clean with a dustpan and broom, then give it a quick spray with the appropriate cage cleaner, then a wipe down.
The bottom is sturdy and chew proof though be under no illusions that the little blighters won’t give it a good go, around the sides of the “room” separator there are very distinctive Fudge and Alvin sized bite marks!The cage part is attached with four securing clips around three of the sides, with there being two separate swing up “doors” for access to the guinea pigs or feeding.
Inside the cage there is the afore mentioned “room” separator, which is simply a shelf that comes a 1/3 of the way out over the bottom tray, with a small section to give the guinea pigs a bit of privacy and somewhere to sleep when still feeling a little shy.
Though I have now removed the smaller section divider as my boys struggled getting in and out due there now larger frames!
The free bottle was soon made short shrift of, with that being chewed into pieces within a fortnight, though the free cage advertised as coming with the cage now looks very useful, holding the food clear from the floor which of course is also where the boys do their “business”!Any downsides? Only a couple and one of those is due to general wear and tear.
The first is the flimsy cage front.
