Just this week, we upgraded our two guinea pigs, Ginger and Cocoa, to a deluxe C&C cage with a loft. While the old Marchioro cage was pretty big, the new cage gives them a lot more room to run around and explore.

But with our daughter’s 13thbirthday looming, time running out, and a new piggy cage at the top of her wishlist, we decided to take the easy route.
