Guinea Pig Cages - Make Your Guinea Pig Cage Comfortable

Having a guinea pig for a pet is a great idea, especially if you have young children around. Along with the fun of having a pet comes the need to make sure the pet has a comfortable space that is just for your guinea pig. Here's a few ideas on making sure your guinea pig cage is everything it needs to be.

One of the first considerations should be something soft and comfortable for your pet to sleep on. You can invest in hypoallergenic cushions from the local pet store, but chances are you have an old tee-shirt that will do the trick nicely. The old shirt can easily be removed from the cage periodically and ran through the washer and dryer.

Carpet remnants are also a great way to line the bottom of your guinea pig cage, although cleaning will be a bit more of a chore. The real advantage to the carpet is that your guinea pig can sleep anywhere in the cage.

Making sure your guinea pig cage allows for easy access to water and food is also a very important factor. Invest in containers that will affix to the wire mesh of the cage, so they will remain stationary and will not be apt to spill the contents all over the cage.

Make sure the containers are situated in locations where it is easy for you to refill them as needed.

A strategically placed litter box is also a must. Just as with the water and food containers, make sure the litter box is placed in a position where you can easily empty and replace the litter when needed. Set up a schedule to replace the litter regularly, and that will help keep your guinea pig cage smell nicer as well as be easier to keep clean.

Taking care of a guinea pig cage is not difficult, although it does involve some degree of commitment and regular maintenance. But the hours of fun your pet will provide are well worth the effort.
