So, I waited about 3 or 4 days anxiously for Milo to have his own bachelor pad. Very cheap, not sturdy, falls apart as soon as you touch it.. it has a bunch of little plastic pieces that holds it together. Try to fix on piece and all the other fall off ruining any progress.. anyhow, some that should be simple is not taking the spouse and I 30-40 minutes to try to get together. Let's see if it hold Milo in... smh
The directions were a bit vague (only pictures, no written instructions), so the first time I put it together I put the metal part inside-out/upside down and couldn’t figure out why the corners didn’t line up and the front of the cage had a huge gap at the closure. After looking at pictures of the product I realized my mistake, laughed at myself, and fixed it. It was very easy to reassemble the correct way. However, the water bottle definitely doesn’t work in the holder they give you, luckily I had one with a larger top that didn’t just slip all the way through the bracket. So far my hedgehog seems very happy in her new home.
My girl loves her new home!! It was time to replace her old cage and I liked the picture. So happy with this purchase. And it's not small at all for one piggy. Plenty of room to roam and still has her "bedroom" and "kitchen" space.
The cage was exactly how the picture looks, I felt more excited for my Guinea pig. It was super easy to assemble and looks great!
At first glance, product seemed fine and we put our new baby guinea pig in it. However, the clips shown in the photo are not that sturdy and the hinged front (the entire panel opens) is quite easy to push either inward or outward despite the small plastic lip intended to keep it in place...wish I would have realized this sooner. Long story short, not sure if the guinea pig pushed his way out or the dog pushed his way in but it did not end well. Do not buy this product, it is not secure for your pet.
This is the worst product ive ever received. not just from chewy, not just for pets, but ever. $60 for this cheap stuff? really? The pieces arent even close to the same length. its not like theyre .5 mm off, theyre about half an inch from fitting. thats way too much room. All of the pieces are bent and also made of cheap flimsy plastic. I am going to be throwing this away without hesitation. I am disappointed and will never, ever buy anything from chewy again. I highly recommend that no one buys this product and I am thoroughly convinced that there are fake positive reviews for this.
The number of people saying this cage is bad because it's of poor quality is sad, because none of them realize that it's much too small for even one guinea pig (and guinea pigs shouldn't be kept alone unless there are major extenuating circumstances anyway), which to me is a bigger deal than its construction. This cage is MUCH too small. The Midwest cage is a much, much better option for a pair of pigs, and is also well constructed. Please skip this thing.
I honestly loved this cage! I used it for my full-grown hedgehog, and putting together was easy-peasy. When cleaning time came 'round, I could take it apart to clean. Not only that, but it was built nicely! I adore the addition of the hideout as well! The only thing I would "complain" about is the water bottle, which wouldn't attach right, but I had a spare one so no matter :)
so there are a few design issues a a others have stated. The hide would be nice if it had other holds on all sides instead of just the back to make a bit more stable. The water bottle is AWFUL it will not stay in the holder so buy a different one. For the price it is amazing, my daughter has 1 guinea pig that could still be considered a baby. We did have a FULL SIZE adult guinea pig in it and he loved it as well. I wouldn't have 2 in this cage together as there wouldn't be enough room. If you have a small animal cleaner the "grips" on thr platform do come clean just might need to wipe from all angles. I would highly recommend this cage just might need a few tweaks here and there and definitely a different water bottle.
Cage is great but the water bottle holder will not stay on the cage keeps falling off
