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. Not to mention with so many fun prints and colours, you can jazz up your cage your way!
Each custom made liner is made with quality polar fleece on the outside which wicks away the moisture from your pets. The liners contain a non-toxic, highly absorbent core on the inside which absorbs and holds the liquids and keeps your pets comfortable and dry.
All the layers are stitched securely together – you wash the whole item either by hand or in the machine. You do not need any other bedding underneath or on top to make them work – no puppy pads, no fleece blankets, no carefresh, no paper litter etc – just wash the one item, a single layer!
The 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.
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.
All liners are machine washable and dryer safe. For washing/cleaning tips, see “About Fleece”

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)
