OUR INDOOR HOUSING & OUTDOOR PLAY AREA Whilst your guinea pigs or rabbit stays with us, your pet is housed indoors in a family environment. All our suites are in the living area of our private residence. This is to ensure your pet feels at home and is included in all family activities. Housing your pet indoors will also ensure that illness is detected promptly. There is no risk of predators, pests or weather extremes. Please see our article on Indoor Housing for more information on why we promote an indoor environment. Our C&C Cage Customisable, adaptable and great in offering a large open space for your guinea pigs to roam. Our 2x4 cage is prefect for 2 - 3 guinea pigs with a running space of 76.2cm x 152.4cm. The C&C cage is very easy to adapt to be a bigger space should you have more than three cavies. Storage is available underneath should you wish to bring your own accessories. Fresh grass hay, pellets and vegetables and fruits are provided daily. The cage is lined with vet bed and a wide range of soft fleecy items from strawberry houses, cushions and cuddle cups. Guinea pigs love lounging after a hard day’s work munching on our grassy garden! The cage is positioned in the living area and is regularly decorated with fairy lights and colours which we think your guinea pig will enjoy. Why C&C Cages? C & C cages can be wide, tall, or designed to fit any space. The key feature of these cages is the ability to create a space for your guinea  pigs that can be altered or changed with ease. The easy to use lock in grids can create multi levels, ramps, hay racks, floor time areas or outdoor play pens. You have the ability to alter the cage to suit your guinea pigs changing needs and requirements. Space: A C & C  cage has the benefit of providing adequate space, accessibility and enables you to provide your guinea pig with a stimulating, fun environment. Our Short Stay Cages Our short stay cages are 90x45cm. They are suitable for 1 - 2 guinea pigs. We also extend these cages and connect them together to make a larger space for your guinea pigs if needed or if your guinea pig is staying for an extended holiday. All cages are bedded with premium vet bed, which is hypo-allergenic, soft and stays dry. Cages are cleaned daily with a thorough change once every 3 days or as needed. See Vet Bed for more information. Each cage comes with a hidey house, soft bed, hay rack, water bottle/bowl and toys. Our Outdoor Play Area Guinea pigs and rabbits LOVE our outdoor play area. We have created a safe and secure pen which encompasses the entirety of the back garden. Every morning and afternoon (weather permitting) your pet will have at least 1 - 2 hours of grass time and outdoor play. In summer this time will reduce and be strictly only early morning and late afternoon as humidity levels rise. Weather forecasts are checked daily to ensure no storms, rain or wind is present. If outdoor play time is not provided we opt for an indoor play time or floor time. Fresh water is provided during outdoor play in addition to adequate sun shades and wooden housing. All outdoor play is supervised with outdoor seating to see the guinea pigs or rabbit at all times. For rabbits the outdoor area is customised with a sunshade cover and plenty of toys and accessories. Grass is very important for guinea pigs and rabbits. It assists in digestive function keeping the hind gut moving and the balance of protozoa and good bacteria in check as it is very high in fibre. In addition as guinea pigs and rabbits teeth are open rooted (continuously growing) it is important they continue to grind and trim their back molars, cheek teeth and incisors daily. Grass is an excellent way to do this not only providing enrichment but also health benefits for your pet whilst they stay with us. Rabbit Housing Rabbits are all housed in C&C cages which are built with extra height to allow the rabbit to have enough space to stretch, hop and lay down comfortably. Rabbits are also given daily floor time. It is important that rabbits are given floor time daily as without adequate exercise they can be prone to osteoporosis and joint issues. Our kitchen and dining are is bunny proof. Some regular guests are toilet trained so have a larger access to the house! Weather permitting the rabbits love outdoor play time, foraging on grasses, wild seeds and safe flowers. Rat Housing Rats are housed in an escape proof cage which is 90x45cm. Rats are fed on a diet of Vetafarm rat pellets. If your rat prefers a different feed pleasebring this with you on the day. All rats get lots of play time with us! We love petting, feeding and socialing with them. Treats include cooked pasta, pine nuts, vegetables, and the occasional fruit. We have hammocks, bowls, toys and are expanding our rat range as more guests choose to stay with us.
