Review 1 for WARE Ferret Pad Ferret Furniture
Had to cut a hole in it to make it 'usable'...

This was definitely not originally meant for ferrets. I bought this for my big boy, who's really long and between 3 to 4 pounds (so pretty big for your standard Marshall ferret). There is just no way my ferret could reach that top floor hideaway, I don't know how your typical 1-2 pound ferret could ever reach. Ferrets are not cats, they can't just jump 3 feet into the air to get into a tiny hole, which is why this makes me think this was not originally intended for ferrets. I ended up cutting a hole on the floor of the top level hideaway so that my ferrets could use the center pillar to safely climb up and down between levels. It took tools, and it took sewing (because I had to cover the sides of the hole with fabric so they wouldn't get splinters), so I don't think most people would go through the trouble or even have the means or knowledge of altering this. I would have given this 1 star, but with the change I made, it's actually become a decent piece that my ferrets actually enjoy! I wish the manufacturers would fix that one flaw...they really made a wonderful looking, and sturdy piece of ferret furniture a pain in the butt! I've attached a photo, you can see the cloth coming out where I cut the hole. Now my ferrets love it.
