How to Extend the Critter Box®

How to Extend the Critter Box®


As a pet owner, you know how important it is to give your furry friend a comfortable and secure living space. One way to enhance your pet's habitat is by using Critter Boxes®, and in this post, we'll show you how to combine two or more Critter Boxes® to make a bigger enclosure for your pet.


C&C Cages

C&C (Cubes and Coroplast) cages are a popular choice for building habitats, but as they get larger, it can become more challenging to fully cover them. To address this issue, we're going to show you how to use Critter Boxes® to cover you C&C cages.



Here we are using two 2 x 3 Critter Box® liners to cover a 2 x 5 C&C base (approximately 27 by 71 inches).



Combining Critter Boxes® is a straightforward process. Start by leaving one edge of each Critter Box open and place one liner edge on top of the other.



MidWest Guinea Habitat*

Another popular option for small animal habitats is the MidWest Guinea Habitat. If you need a larger enclosure than what a single MidWest cage can provide, you can combine two or more cages to make a bigger habitat. To do this, cut out one end of each cage and then tape them together. You can then insert two Critter Box® MidWest* size cage liners to create a comfortable and secure living space for your pet.

By combining Critter Boxes®, you can give your pet a larger and more comfortable living space. Using liners can also make cleaning your pet's habitat a breeze.


It's crucial to use the right size liners for your cage to ensure a proper fit. For example, if you have a 2x6 C&C cage, make sure the liners you use can cover six grids. You can use two 2x3 liners or one 2x3 liner and one 2x4 liner.
