This series of photos is from a 'return' of guinea pigs adopted out to a nice, well-to-do family with 3 kids. The oldest was 10. She was the one apparently 'cleaning' the cage. Despite hearing multiple times from me during the adoption process that kids WILL NOT take care of the guinea pigs over time, that it is the PARENTS RESPONSIBILITY, THIS is how a cage and a pair of adult females was returned to me in October 2003 from an adoption in May 2002.

NO EXCUSE
There is NO EXCUSE -- other than abuse and neglect -- for a cage to EVER be in this condition. I have been using C&C cages 5 years and everyone of them looks as clean and new as the day they were first made. This is disgusting.

"that is big time animal curalty"

NO CAGES IN KIDS BEDROOMS
This cage WAS NOT in the kid's bedroom. Thank God for small favors. It surely would have been even worse. The conditions of this return just underscore all of the statements put forth on my page about why we do not allow cages to be in a child's bedroom. It's a condition of adoption from Cavy Spirit (Bedroom Policy).

I have seen this with the plastic tray cage that I bought for my piggie. I religiously cleaned the cage every week and put fresh bedding in. What can be done to prevent the build up of the "crud" that is on the bottom of the cage? I switched to a metal tray cage and it's not that bad.
