Latest Product Reviews For Zippi Guinea Pig Shelter - Green
Not An Ideal Standalone Hidey Without Doing Some DIY - Guineaowner, Cork,
I was looking for a two-way corner hidey and this one appeared to be perfect. However, the design is not the best if you intend to use it as a standalone hidey. The reason for this is that it is designed to connect other combinations such as tunnels and platforms. As a result, you get four rather large elevated holes on the bottom of each corner on a ledge that is pointing to the inside. Guinea pig's feet/toes could easily get stuck in there. Having such ledge there is also not convenient if you are already intending in using absorbent fleece underneath, which then does not use its entire surface. Also, the entrances are way too sharp. The solutions I found to make it work as a standalone hidey are the following: Use a sharp ‘thin’ knife to cut away the inside facing ledge so that the holes are gone. Then go around the entrances to make it less sharp/thicker with the same knife. You could veil it as well to make it smooth. But my experience thus far is that my guinea pigs start to bite the entrances from time to time and you have to keep cutting the newly occurred sharp edges again and again. This is a small effort though. Due to it being entirely made out of plastic, it is also a more suitable hidey for outdoor use than it is for indoor, where I am actually using it. I recommend to not use it as a standalone hidey unless you are willing to do some DIY on it as outlined above and as can be seen in the image.
