FLEECE CAGE LINERS FOR THE STANDARD C&C TYPE CAGES
(Not suited to the Kmart 30cm grid cages,find them here – link: Liners for Kmart grid cages
OCT 2021: NOTE: We’ve made a small change – The inner absorbent layer is now stitched securely all the way around on all liners, instead of just across the ends.
What are C&C cages?
C&C cages are basically a set of wire plastic coated grids around 35cm square, that you clip together to make a cage for your guinea pigs – to give them more space to run about.
They connect together with the plastic connectors provided in the package, or you can attach them together with cable ties if preferred.
In the base of the cage, you buy a sheet of corflute (like plastic cardboard) and trim it to size, or fold the edges up to create a base where nothing falls out onto your floor like hay and poops. This means the floor has a waterproof barrier between the guinea pigs and your floors.
The cages can be configured in many different ways, single or multiple levels, connected with bridges and low angle ramps – limited only be the space in your room, and the amount of grids you can afford.
FINDING LINERS HERE IN THE SHOP: Regular C&C grids are 35cm x 35cm.
I make the fleece liners in multiples of 36cm (35cm + 1cm for the connector) ie 4×2 liner is 144cm x 72cm
Once in the website shop, choose the liners you need by grids long x grids wide. I always make them a couple of cm larger for a good fit in the cages.
FLEECE CAGE LINERS:
Here at Deano, we’ve been making fleece cage liners since 2013.
WHAT ARE THEY? – Deano fleece cage liners have three layers, all stitched securely together. There’s nothing to pull out or recover – it’s just a simple ‘mat’ that you can wash, over and over.
The top and bottom layers are polar fleece – this fabric works as a wick to pull liquids into the middle absorbent layer and keep it there – like a disposable nappy. This means the outer surfaces are dry and comfortable for your pets.
WHATS INSIDE: The liners contain a non-toxic, highly absorbent cotton based core on the inside which absorbs and holds the liquids.
There is NO PLASTIC or BAMBOO in my liners. Liquids will not leak out through the bottom so there is no need for any plastic barrier..
Deano liners need nothing else on top or underneath to make them work for you – no carefresh, no puppy pads, no shavings, no towels ….nothing!
Save yourself time, money and water by washing one single item – instead of many bedding layers .
The Deano cage liners are designed to be reversible which makes cleaning halfway through the week a breeze!
Just shake out your liner, flip it over and your cage is nice and clean for a few more days. So no matter which side faces up, it will work for you.
RECOMMENDED NUMBER OF OCCUPANTS FOR CAGE SIZES:
I recommend the liners should be spot cleaned daily to keep your pet’s home clean and healthy.
You can do this easily by using a small broom and dustpan or even purchasing a hand-held vacuum.
Of course you can also just remove the fleece liner and take it outside, shake it out and put it back in for a quick cleaning day.
In between washes – if you’re pressed for time, take the liner out and hang it in the breeze for a few hours to dry off. It will start working again straight away.
All liners should be changed out every 4-7 days or as needed.
Please do not keep them in the cage any longer, even if the cage liner still feels dry to the touch.
Our fleece cage liners are made to be easy to use, easy to wash, and quick to dry – so they can get back into the cage faster.
All Deano Designs Perth liners are machine washable – or you can hose them off, or handwash them.
FOR INFORMATION about cleaning and maintaining your fleece cage liners, see ABOUT FLEECE section here on the website.
ORDERING TIP: Load your liners into the cart one by one, this will help you get your fabric selections right for each liner (ie your chosen colours for front and back of each item.)
Discounts will be automatically calculated inside the checkout if you buy more than one of the same product type, even if different size.
ADDING ANOTHER LEVEL TO YOUR GRID TYPE CAGES:
- If you’d like to add a second level to your C&C cage, I also make liners for the loft areas, you can have them made with the standard 15cm x 21cm ramp gap, or without.
- Absorbent liners for the corflute ramps are also available: C&C RAMP LINER
STOCKISTS OF THESE CAGE TYPES – I do not sell the cages or components, I suggest Guinea pigs Australia website as a popular choice.The grids are also sold online as ‘wire cube storage’ etc, check the number of squares per grid, to ensure small piggies can’t wriggle through.
RAMPS AND ACCESSWAYS FOR C&C CAGES:
ABOUT RAMP GAPS – You might have constructed an upper level in your C&C cage – and if you are needing a fleece liner for it, ramp access is something to consider.
How the ramp attaches will affect how the liner works and fits your cage.
Check the pics below to see how your ramp will attach to the upper level. Then you can choose the option you need for the loft liner. You can also choose for the ramp gap on left or right.
OTHER LOFT LINERS:
‘L’ SHAPED : Available on the 2×2 grid liner size, you can select either the regular 15x21cm ramp gap – or a full L shaped gap 34cm space.
TWIN RAMP GAPS – Yes, from October 2021 we can offer all loft liners with ramp gaps on the left and right – twice the fun for piggy zoomies! Choose TWIN RAMP GAPS when you select your loft liner sizes.
