"A retrofit method to modify your cage on a stand so piggies can easily exit for Floor Time"

YOU asked--we delivered! You asked for a way to open a door to the cage and let piggies out for floor time--we listened--and here we have it.

This can be used for a cage on a stand, or if your cage is on the floor and you want to let them out from the loft, It does involve cutting a small section of the Coroplast® wall, but we've made a clever work-around to close it back up safely when not in use. Once it's installed, it's easy to open and close, and you can leave the ramp there or remove it. 

You can use one of your existing ramps if you have one, or you can choose an optional ramp below.


1 Portal Grid
1 Wide mini grid
1 "Drawbridge kit" (Translucent backer with rivets and velcro)
1 Template for cut out
1 Larger clip to hold the "door" back
1 Small clip to close it securely when not in use
Cable ties
Complete color step-by-step instructions
1 26" Standard Wire-Reinforced Cage Ramp with Carpet and Edgers

I’ve wanted to have a way for my piggies to get from their cage (on a stand) to floor and back on their own and of their own free will, but couldn’t visualize how to make it work. Sue to the rescue! She had a fabulous cage edit idea and this simple and easy few pieces makes it a reality! It was super easy to install with the included instructions and I’m so appreciate of Sue’s thoughtful assistance with this project. My piggies love to check out their floor space and they like not having to be picked up to do it. Win-win!

My piggies love their cage more than the floor space so I appreciate being able to close the little gate at the top of the ramp so they don’t sneak back into the cage before I’ve gotten to clean everything for them. It’s an extra nice feature to have for times when you need them to stay on or out for a time. Then it can be open the remainder of the time so they can go where they’d like. We are still working on them using this reliably but they use the ramps in their cage without any issue - it just takes some time for them to get used to a change.

This is an excellent addition to the cage set up!

You will love this simple way to expand your piggies space to as big as your floor space set up will allow and your piggies will be so happy! Thank you again to Sue!
