The Midwest Homes for Pets Guinea Habitat Plus and Accessories offer plenty of space and options for designing your guinea pig’s home.

Although one cage is large enough for one to two guinea pigs, many reviewers suggest purchasing a second cage and connecting it to the first cage with one cage’s door/ramp to create lots of open space for two or more guinea pigs.

We found many reports of guinea pigs popcorning in joy after entering this customizable cage.

And

The Midwest Homes for Pets Guinea Habitat Plus is made of wire side panels and a washable canvas bottom with 14” side walls.

It has a washable and removable PVC-lined canvas mat. Although advertised as “leak-proof,” a few owners suggest adding a lining because the canvas leaks slightly where straps are sewn into the bottom.

Also, many recommend substituting traditional loose bedding with a fleece pad over puppy pee mats or newspapers for convenience and economy.

Then put bedding on top of the pad/mat in at least one section of the cage.

Bottoms up!

The canvas bottom is what distinguishes the Midwest Homes for Pets Guinea Habitat Plus from many other models.

Easily folded up for moving, this soft-bottomed cage does have a few disadvantages.

So what are?

It’s thin and offers little cushioning or support, stains easily, and requires a large hard surface to sit on–like a big table or much floor space. If you do try to move the cage after assembly, it’s not unlikely it will collapse in on itself.

Several owners report that their guinea pigs like to chew on (and sometimes through!) the canvas bottom and straps that hold the wire and canvas together.

The Midwest Homes for Pets Guinea Habitat Plus is fairly straightforward in assembly and set-up.

The wire side walls hook together either inside or outside of the canvas base. Some people find the overall structure sturdy while other describe the walls as “wobbly” and “bendable”.

What is good?

Many people agree upon are the Midwest Homes for Pets Guinea Habitat Plus’s accessories (sold separately) are handy.

First, the divider panel–which has a hinged tailgate-style door–doubles as a ramp that can close off sections to keep guinea pigs in one part of the cage while the other part is being cleaned.

Also, the divider is great for separating two guinea pigs who’re acclimating to (or fighting with) each other.

A top panel is great for offering protection from other pets, although a few people warn that it’s “flimsy” and falls in if not properly clipped on. Finally, the canvas bottom replacement and the ramp cover are convenient to have.
