About indoor Guinea Pig cages
Guinea pigs are best kept indoors for a variety of reasons and we have the perfect pads for your furry friends! Our guinea pig cages provide spacious and comfortable homes for your pets while being easy to keep clean. Chosen from the impressive Ferplast and Kaytee ranges, the cages are designed specifically for cavies and are easy to incorporate into your home.
Why keep Guinea Pigs indoors?
Guinea pigs favour similar temperatures to humans and prefer consistent temperatures, making your home a pleasing environment in which to live. You will see your pets regularly, ensuring that you note any health issues at the earliest opportunity and your pets will receive the company they need to stave off boredom.
Where should a Guinea Pig cage be positioned?
Your indoor guinea pig cage should be located away from direct sunlight. Avoid conservatories and sun rooms as these could become far too hot in the summer months. Cavies are nervous creatures who will be scared by loud noises, so choose somewhere relatively quiet and protect your little friends from your other pets, especially cats! If you plan to let your pets out of their cage, you must ensure that the room is safe for them which means hiding any electrical wires and cables which the guinea pigs will be happy to chew through!
How often should you clean Guinea Pig cages?
You should remove poop from the cage on a daily basis and clean it thoroughly using a pet-safe detergent every four or five days. Always replace the bedding and dry the cage thoroughly before returning your pet to his home.
