Good cage for rats

I'm not sure if I would personally put a ferret in this cage, maybe for babies temporarily or one ferret... but I bought this cage on 10/29/2014 for my rats and it was perfect! One of the rat cage calculators says it can hold up to 4 adult rats but I think I'd max it out at 2-3 adult rats judging from the size off my males, MAYBE 4 smaller males.
It was easy to put together and was bigger than I thought. The bar spacing is perfect for baby/smaller rats, I've kept multiple 4-5 week old boys in it with no issue. Only "down sides" (that aren't that bad) are the top door should be held up otherwise it might bend the plastic on top. It also has a smaller front door that I had issues opening in the beginning... definitely needed two hands and some thinking to open it lol! It also had to be taken apart to be cleaned because I used fleece, but none of those are really major things. It is a great cage for ratties and I'd definitely recommend it for those looking for a cage. I bought a critter nation for my rats since I've got 7 now but I will definitely use this cage if I ever need to separate any of my boys, if I ever get females, or if I can figure out if the bar spacing will work for another small animal. Definitely worth buying if you want a smaller/lighter cage compared to a critter nation.
I would recommend this to a friend!

I'm very pleased with this cage. Was a little worried about the size being to small for two rats but when I recived it in the mail, it came in a huge box. Easy to set up and doesn't feel flimsy or like cheat meterials. Everything lines up great for easy set up. Lots of room for hanging things and toys. Thinking of even getting a third occupant too, do to how much room there is. Great cage for sure. I would recommend this to a new pet owner looking for a good size cage. For their small animals.

Great cage for Rats!

The space and lay out is awesome for Rats! You can add extra shelves, a large hideout and a wheel. My one annoyance with it is that the escape proof front door is a pain to open. However the quality of the cage and the ease of the build were worth it, especially since we got it on sale!

Not Impressed

I had one ferret in this cage, than two.
The plastic shelf is flimsy. My one ferret made it bend and look precarious, two is asking a little much. It needs more support.
The ramp is difficult for my ferrets to climb, The plastic is slippery, and the raised bumps need to be larger for grip. I recommend putting some kind of cover on it for grip.
The horizontal bars create an easy climb for one of my ferrets, making this dangerous for her, and frustrating when she uses it to get into other areas.
The base seems to hold excrement into it, and is not easy to clean, as the description seems to imply.
The litter box is ridiculously tiny, not allowing ferrets to get all four feet in as they need.
The hammock is complete trash. Both of my guys refused to use it. I ended up buying a different one.
The only thing this cage is good for? A travel cage, otherwise don't bother. Spend a bit more and get a quality cage with wide opening doors, and that are able to fit rectangular litter boxes.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Pretty cool

It is a pretty cool cage and is fairly roomy, my two rats enjoy the climbing space. The water bottle however does not work and my rats are completely unable to drink from it. Sadly when you open the top door you have to keep it open or it bends part of the cage backwards.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
