Narrow Loft with Ramp
My guinea pigs loved this ramp at first, but after having it for a few months, my piggies feet started to get red and irritated, and were really sensitive. If you are planning on purchasing this product, please cover it with a fleece liner of some sort! Otherwise, I would totally reccomend!
My guinea pig figured out the ramp within minutes and absolutely loves his new loft! In fact, he spends most of his time up there, when he's not zooming up and down! He definitely seems happier (more popcorning!) I did modify it and use a portal grid (with the opening) instead of a solid one on the front as I was worried about him fitting as he gets bigger and I like that better but everything else about it is
We adopted a pair of piggies and didnt introduce the ramp until a few weeks after. The younger (and more timid) surprisingly took to the ramp more quickly and decided the 2nd floor was his new hiding space. It wasnt for another week or two until his buddy one day decided to go up, and then claimed it! Our children love to watch the piggies run the ramp and they have gotten so good that they sometimes jump off the end. Installation was super easy and the carpet is grippy and gentle on their feet.
I had concerns about whether my guinea pigs would actually go up the ramps, whether it would take up too much space in the cage (2 by 4) and whether it would make cleaning much more difficult. I shouldnt have worried. My guinea pigs are pretty young and they ascended the ramps immediately. My bigger boy made the upper level his cozy space right away. This saved cage space and stopped the constant bickering. The ramps also are on the edges of the cage so still leave a nice open space in the center. My littlest piggie likes to go under the ramp and cuddle in. As for the cleaning, it is only slightly more difficult. My kids love watching the piggies zoom up the ramps. It was nice to provide some more space without going out further horizontally.
2x3 was indeed too small for my very active piggy. I was short on space but he loves his narrow loft loop! Lots of space to run and he loves ramps! It also opened up a little space on the bottom because his cozy now goes in between the ramp openings on the top. Perfect for small spaces! Also when he used to run around in circles he used to trash kitchen. Now its under a ramp and out of his running Loop.
