beware the plastic ramps

This cage was fairly easy to put together, however I was very disappointed to discover that one of our two ferrets was chewing on the plastic ramps. Apparently they are not as chew-resistant as the rest of the cage. Plus, the spiral slide constantly falls down thru normal use. So we took all that out since the ferrets are big to climb from level to level.
I would recommend this to a friend!

I bought this cage in store and got it for 20% off due to box damage and for 110 bucks I am pleased with it. I didn't have much trouble putting it together but the platforms are VERY difficult to take in and out or to move around. I bought the cage for my two adult female rats hoping that they wouldn't be able to squeeze out and luckily they don't (Or at least they aren't trying hard enough because they love their new cage so much!). There is plenty of room to run and play for a rat or a chinchilla, not so much for more than one ferret maybe. If your rats are small or if they are escape artists, I would not recomend this cage. The widest gap is 1 inch. The ramps are pretty flawed; they are too long for the dimensions of the cage and they touch the wall of the cage which kinda bothers me but isn't physical problem. Also they are a little slippery which means you can't make them very steep. Lastly, the slide seems really cool but in order for it to fit in the cage at all you MUST put the shelves in exactly like the are in the picture, which I didn't want to do. All in all, this is a good cage based on the resonable price and my ratties and I are satisfied with the purchase! :)

It's a great cage for my bigger ferret, but my other ferret keeps slipping through all the bars. Also, the wire breaks easily and the top corner was bent when I bought it. Despite the quality, it'd be okay if the bars were a bit smaller. :(
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I got this cage for my pet rats, even my full grown ones can slip through the bars, though even looking at the bars in person, they don't look it. Chincilla would be happy here I'm sure but the darn thing took me over an hour to get together and some of the ramps are breaking when they came out of the box. Could be better quality and I wish the bars were smaller!!!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

great cage for starters

It's a great cage for starters, I have two ferrets of my own. The downside to the cage is mainly the slide. It won't stay together with the ferrets' weight. I ended up 'duct taping' the top part of the slide to keep it together. The ramps were a lil slick for them climbing up and down, and some of the cage latches I had to bend a little to get it to secure a little better. On the plus side, there is a lot of space for their sleepers and what not, easy to clean and maintain, and it also has a top latch for easy access... Overall, I would refer this cage to others, as long as they don't mind the little faults.

This cage is good for a starter. it is big enough for my ferret to play around in. but if you don't put the slide together correctly, then it wont work. That and the slide wont hold the ferrets weight. But overall it is a great cage
