4 reasons to add a stand to your guinea pigs C&C cage
With so many options to choose from, you might be wondering whether to pick a C and C cage with a stand or not. In this short article, we share some of the reasons why we think stands are an excellent add-on to your C&C guinea pig cage.
Reason 1: C&C Cages with a stand make your guinea pigs less stressed
In the wild, guinea pigs are prey to many predators, including birds of prey. As a reason, guinea pigs tend to panic when someone reaches out to them from above.
Adding a stand to your cage prevents this, by putting you and your pets at the same level. Guinea pigs kept in a cage with a stand are noticeably less stressed and more easily tamed than if your pen is at floor level.
Reason 2: Stands greatly improve the user-friendliness of the cage
If your guinea pig cage is on the floor, you will have to bend down or squat for every interaction with your pigs, and every clean-up. In the long run, this could be not very pleasant and lead to decreased interaction and level of care.
Reason 3: Stands create storage space
Guinea pigs come with a variety of supplies: hay, food, bedding, toys, medicines, etc.. A stand will conveniently create storage space under the C&C cage to put them away.
Reason 4: C and C cages with a stand look great
Cages with a stand are impressive and noticeable. Expect to receive many compliments from visitors. There now exists a large variety of baskets and storage bins to place in the stand and prettify the cage.
