Best Guinea Pig Cages

To help you make the best choice, we have looked at many different cages that are for sale online in search of the ideal cage for your cavies. 

Do be aware that many on sale at pet shops and online are simply too small for the amount of room a guinea pig needs.

Plastic cages are the best option for indoor guinea pigs as they are safe and easy to clean. Below are our cage recommendations. They are all a good size and will be perfect for 2 guinea pigs:

Ferplast Casita: A Review

Ferplast Casita 120 Cage for Guinea Pigs
Our recommended best buy: the Ferplast Casita 120 cage

The Ferplast Casita 120 is our recommended best buy and the one that we found to be the best guinea pig cage for 2 sharing.

Large Enough for 2 Guinea Pigs

The Ferplast cage is a good size measuring 119cm x 58cm x 61cm. This is one of the few cages that met the RSPCA recommended size.

Don’t be tempted to buy one of the smaller similar products they sell as guinea pig cages. Smaller cages than this are simply not big enough for the space your guinea pigs need to thrive and be happy.

This cage has a lot more height than most which gives the cage an even more spacious area to popcorn and play.

The Cage is Good Quality

Top opening cage
The Ferplast Casita 120 has a rounded top that opens for easy cleaning and accessibility

This modern cage is well made and built with good quality materials. Unlike many other similar looking alternatives, the plastic is strong and durable.

The rounded roof opens which makes it easier than a side opening cage when it comes to taking your guinea pigs out for cuddles and pampering. This also makes it a lot easier to clean.

There is also a sliding door in the side of the habitat so you have the option of a top and side opening.

Accessories are Included

The accessories that are shown in the picture also come with the cage. These include:

  • Plastic food bowl
  • Water bottle
  • Plastic feeder for the hay
  • Small house that you can fill with hay so your guinea pig can feel safe and secure.

If you would rather add your own accessories, these can be removed and replaced with some of your choice.

Putting the Cage Together

The cage comes flat-packed but is very easy to put together and if for any reason you need to store it, this will help you save space. 

There are no screws. All you need to do is clip it all together, following the instructions, and it will all click into place, ready for your cavies to move in.

The instructions are detailed with pictures to show you what to do which makes this habitat easy to construct. Make sure you follow these step by step though so that you get it right first time!

Easy to Clean

The plastic base is easy to clean and easily accessible via the opening roof. This makes it a lovely hygienic home for your guinea pigs.

Stand Available as Extra Purchase

Ferplast Casita 120 Guinea Pig Cage Stand
This stand is especially designed to fit the Ferplast Casita 120 cage and can be bought separately 

A great addition might be useful is the Ferplast stand/trolley, specially designed for this model. It keeps the cage at a good height without having to place it on a piece of furniture.

The stand is constructed from a robust metal and has wheels so that you can move it with ease when required.

  • Ample space for your guinea pigs to be content
  • A secure and safe environment

All guinea pigs need regular exercise in a large space where they can play so you will also need a good sized run.

Do You Need An Extra Large Custom Shaped Cage?

If you need an extra large guinea pig cage that you can configure to the size you require and don’t mind a bit of work in putting it all together, take a look at C&C Cages, a modular, DIY option.

However, if you want a simple cage for 2 guinea pigs that you can put together quickly, choose a standard plastic cage like the one recommended above or in our list at the top of the page.
