I think that is really the only acceptable time I would let them live in a small cage.

I love Oliver! lol
Most piggys freeze when out of their comfort zone.
Before i build whistles C&C cage i let him free roam every single day until evening time. And what would he do? sit there like a frozen statue or hide in a hidy and never come out.
I built his cage, put him in it and off he went. He still runs around like crazy. I have to vacuum the floor everyday to get up the shavings he kicks out. i plan to be switching to fleece in the next month or so.

I used to have cavies. Miss them sometimes. I bred them for 4H shows. At one point I had 12! Lemme tell yah, if you want a loving lil mammal, get a guinea :D :D

Most of mine I kept til they died of old age, one died of ovarian cancer, and the 8 babies went off in pairs to new homes. I had abyssinians and americans :D their names were (in order of ownership/birth) Cavy Davy, Oreo, Patch, Frizzle & Cupcake (sisters), Coco, Chocolate, Caramel, Frosting, Teeter, Totter, Scout, Bandit, and Candycorn. :D

Oh geeze, can't resist. :D

Here's the four newborns (well, they were newborns when I took the pics. Now they're two or so months old.)







And the parents of the rascals....

YOU GUYS!! You are all sooo lucky! I had always wanted a silly chubby guinea pig! My teacher has 2 but since they are 4 years old, they are sorta slow now and sleep a lot. They are still absolutely adorable, though!

Here, the brand is rubbermaid and it's 12 pieces of the "C&C" which gives you a 3 by 3 cage 20.00. so, 40.00 for a 6 by 6, CHEAPER than a store bought IMO/IME. A smaller, 2.5 by 5 cage here from the store costs 100 dollars!!
