Awesome cage!
I got this because so many people recommended it. I'm glad I bought it! So roomy even for 2 ferrets. I ordered it while it was on back order, but when they were back in stock I got my cage a day or 2 later. Very fast. I can't wait to get the add on unit!

Best affordable cage out there!
This cage was exactly what I was looking for. My little ratties are still babies so they will have to grow into this cage but I loved the easy set up (only had to get my fianc's help once because I wasn't strong enough to put the final joint in place). It is spacious with plenty of room for them to run around and has plenty of spots for me to hang accessories and hammocks. This cage is super durable and well made and was more spacious than I expected. Defiantly worth every penny.

I would definitely recommend this cage to any ferret owner , its very roomy , well built and rolls so easily I push it outside on nice days and my ferrets love it! has by far the best price and shipping was so fast , ordered on Monday and was on my porch by Wednesday, I was kinda worried about the bad reviews I had read about them but my experience was a very positive one.

Great quality and easy assembly
First off, this site has the best pricing I found, searched several pet stores and scoured the interwebs and most want close to $200 or more. Secondly, the assembly was complete within 30 minutes easy and the quality of the cage is very apparent. No tools required, however, I would recommend using a full size Phillips head screw driver for convenience, the small one provided gets old quick. Lastly, follow the instructions and you'll have no issues, very well written. For the reviews that state there's a door alignment issue, read the warning disclosure that accompanies the instructions. It clearly states there are two red protective guards on the prongs of the door panel that need to be removed for a proper fit. I highly recommend this cage, and will be purchasing an add on unit in the future!!

Excellent Cage
I bought this cage for my rescue pigeon. He is a special needs handicapped, PMV survivor. He does not fly well. He jumps hops around. A normal flight cage would not be suitable for him. I liked the idea of this cage. I loved that this cage has shelf that was adjustable. I especially loved the fact that both doors open completely or can be easily be removed.Excellent QualityEasy SetupMost Importantly!!! My bird loves this cage. He loves to show everyone around. He shows my friends and family that he can climb up and down his ramp.

Perfect Home for Bun-Bun
Our rabbit, Foster, loves his new home. Rather than climb the ladder, he jumps up and down from the upper level with ease. Easy to clean this cage especially since he religiously uses his litter box. We need to purchase a high back litter box and that will help with him spraying out the back. I preferred the Ferret cage for our bunny - the space in between the wires are wider making it easier to see him and give him a treat or pet. And I love that we can easily move the cage around - good for cleaning hay off the floor.

To give my ferret more room.
MysteriaSilver on Jul 15, 2016
I did a ton of research before concluding that, according to the internet, this cage is the best choice for ferrets.

Needed a smaller cage for our vacation home and am hoping this smaller version works well.

I have the 182 and 183 add-on unit for my rabbits. When these units are stacked three high, my rabbits don't go to the upper level, so I am purchasing another floor level unit to have two separate cages, each two units high.

I foster kittens. Is it big enough for 2 kittens?
Heather B on Jul 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It would be large enough to comfortably house one kitten, and I would say two at the very most. More than that would become cramped. Once they become adolescent however, you would want a bigger unit.
Would this be good for 2 guniea pigs? They'll gets LOTS of attention but still Id like them to have plenty of room in their habitat.
Amanda H on Dec 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Guinea Yes, it ia a fantastic cage. I purchased it for my Grandchildren along with 2 Guinea pigs.It is tough, and very roomy. It is also very easy to clean. The pigs can easily kick out your hay, or pellets, ect. So we purchase a large plastic bucket that went up 6" or so and filled the entire lower level. Problem solved for under $10.00. .
Will this work for Guinea pigs?
Aaron D on Jul 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Guinea pigs need longer cages, most people make cc cages for them. I know that my guinea pig would hate this cage because of how little floor space there would be after adding her litter box and bed and everything.
Does this come with a bottom pan?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes, but "pan" may imply that the perimeter is raised significantly... which it is not. there are accessories which attack to the base "pan" to raise the height to something more like a shallow litter box, but they're only necessary if you plan on putting bedding down on the entire bottom of the cage.
can the wheels be removed?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You don't have to put the wheels on it, but the height the wheels add and the fact that it can be moved makes it a lot easier to clean under it.
How wide are the cage bars apart? Would it be suitable for 1 fancy rat?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Depends on how small your rat is. If your rat is an adult, then yes. Juvenile and young rats could probably wiggle out.
how many square feet is this cage?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 36"L x 25"W x 38½"H. or 20.04 cubic feet. By the way the second level falls down easily and is heavy enough to hurt most small animals. If your thinking about getting the cage keep that in mind. I would recommend replacing the second level with more secure levels or hammocks. Ive been able to use mine that way. Mine also arrived with a sharp piece of metal sticking out so be careful before putting any animals inside. I tried to leave a review before but the site would take it down. Hope you can see this before its taken down.
Can stand be removed?
Jamba on Dec 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, but this product is Amazing. I have had it for 2 years now and it is by far the best that I have seen. My ferrets love it. Easy to clean. I keep their supplies on the shelf underneath. We also have a hammock that easily attaches to the top. I recommend this to everybody. :)
