My husband and I went into the store and the lady there recommended this cage because she had used it for her Chinchillas. When we actually bought this cage I was so excited. It was a decent price and seemed big enough for our 2 Chinchillas. However, it is a really messy cage! poo, hay, and the bedding fall out from the wire and goes all over the place. It would be great if we kept the cage somewhere where it's out of the way and the mess wouldn't be that big of a deal but we keep it in our living room. I would have made a wall around the bottom to retain some of the mess. I wouldn't recommend this cage to anyone for the use of Chinchillas.

Good Cage, Good Price, Bad Instructions

I have been looking all over for a decent cage with a decent price, and I this is exactly what I wanted. However, I must say the set-up was not an easy task. The instructions are minimal at best and only give a vague step-by-step labeled picture of the cage. It is difficult to get it right away if you haven't set up a cage like this before.
Another thing is the doors on the cage. They seem to slide open with the lightest touch, which hasn't been a problem yet, but let's just say my pets' room will have the door shut 24/7 until I find a fix.
I would recommend this product to a friend who is tight on cash, or doesn't want the cage to cost more than the animal. If you can afford to get a nicer one; do it.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Very Escape-able!

When I purchased this cage I thought I had found a great cage for our 5 ferrets. It's very large and all 5 fit in there comfortably. The problem started when our youngest, smallest ferret almost immediately managed to sneak through the bars of the cage. Prevue says the bar spacing is 1" but it's actually a bit more than that. Within 2 months of purchasing this cage, 3 of our 5 ferrets could get out of it either through climbing through the bars or pushing on the door so that with enough pressure, there is enough give in the metal to sneak out. A letter to Prevue asking them about the cage proved they don't stand behind their product - the claimed they used an "industry standard" of 1" bar spacing and that my ferrets "would get out of any cage". Prevue advertises this model as a ferret/cat cage. If you are looking for a ferret cage, look to Superpet or Ferret Nation for a ferret cage and leave Prevue-Hendryx to modify their cages and their customer support.
