FLEECE CAGE LINERS FOR THE STANDARD C&C TYPE CAGES (35cm grids)
(Not suited to the Kmart 30cm grid cages)
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.
The easiest washable bedding is of course, a fleece cage liner.
Using Fleece Liners are cost effective, better for the environment and also much healthier for your pets overall well being.
And with so many fun prints and colours, Fleece Liners can be a great way to jazz up your cage!
Each Deano cage liner is made with quality polar fleece on the outside which wicks away the moisture from your pets.
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.
There’s fleece on the top & bottom – there’s nothing else needed 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.
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.
CLEANING AND CARE: For information on cleaning and maintaining your fleece cage liners, see ABOUT FLEECE section here on the website.

- 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 ramp gap, or without.
- There is also a C&C RAMP LINER available to order, fits the corflute ramps 70cmx16cm
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.

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. Many cages are configured with the ramp either needing an access gap, or not.
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.
Note: we can also offer L SHAPED LOFT LINERS
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.
Kmart brand wire cube units – Jan 2020
Kmart have released a range of wire cube storage units – that are pretty similar to the GPA type C&C cage grids.
There are differences in the overall size of each grid, and the number of squares per grid.
This means that the regular C&C grids (35.5cm) are much larger than the Kmart ones (30cm)
