1. Guinea Habitat

Review
Our first pick is a Modular Guinea pig cage.
This cage offers a base set up with 8 sq. foot of space to eat sleep and play in. Having extra space in your cage is vital because hamsters don’t have great eyesight. Here’s my article on hamster eyesight and the precautionary measures you need to take for them.

Although 8 sq. is just enough space for one pig to live comfortably, you can expand it by buying additions to the base cage and connect them if your guinea pigs need a large cage.
The simple yet convenient set up allows you to install the cage outdoors or indoors whenever u want.
The canvas bottom can get dirty, but the leak-proof PVC lined base allows for easy washing repeatedly.
This MidWest guinea pig cage offers a simple Wire Mesh and canvas base set up that is good enough to keep any guinea pig happy.
If you want an indoor/outdoor setup this is an ideal cage available at an affordable price.

What to consider when buying a guinea pig cage?

While buying any product for your pet, you should be wary of all the factors involved in making that purchase. Here’s what you should know before buying a cage for your guinea pig.

Guinea pig cage size

Make sure the cage you’re opting for is not congested and has plenty of space for your piggy to roam around in.
A multi-level cage is even better as it keeps your piggy active and gets more exercise.

Wire or plastic cages

Wire cages have always been very popular.

If you’re getting one, make sure it has a deep plastic base which can be filled with at least 1.5 inches of bedding.

Make sure the cage you get does not have a wire bottom as they aren’t comfortable for small animals.

Moreover, cages with horizontal wires are better as they make climbing easier for little guinea pigs.

Plastic cages are gaining popularity as they come in unique looks and are easier to clean.

On the other hand, plastic cages do not provide the same level of ventilation as a wire cage.

Modular homes

Modular homes look fun and enticing for guinea pigs, but they may not be the best idea.
Usually, modular pet homes with tubular designs are small.
They do not provide them in the same area as wire cages and large guinea pigs may get stuck in the tubes.
In case you’re looking for a modular home, keep these factors in mind

Conclusion

Wire cages are almost always more durable, can be used indoors as well as outdoors, and are airier.
Hence, they make better homes.
Despite this, if you want to buy a plastic cage, make sure it is spacious and has enough ventilation to keep the bedding dry and your little piggy comfy.

Related Questions

Do guinea pigs need a house in their cage?
Guinea pigs love to burrow somewhere inside their cage. They also like to relax in a cozy spot. Ideally, its best to have a small home in their cages filled with bedding/litter. They are pretty small and get frightened by the slightest noise so they need a place where they can hide away and sleep in peace.
