Came undamaged

Cage is great for a quarantine, travel or hospital cage. Woefully inadequate for a permanent home for rats.

rusty cage

Came with a few rusty spots. Rust is like a cancer. Overpriced

Rats can get out

This cage is way too flimsy for a smart rat. The bars can easily be pushed apart and rats can squeeze through. The door and the latch are not secure and rats can get out. I cannot recommend this product.

Great temporary cage

This cage is not enough space for keeping even one rat long term- and yes, you should always have at least two. But it is a very good holding cage for when you clean out the regular cage, because, although it is too small to be a the rats' regular cage, it is a pretty comfortable cage for the rats for a short time. You can put a hammock, water, bottle, food, and chew toy, and they will be okay. It's also good as a nursery, bonding, hospital, and travel cage. I love these cages, but the rats will not be happy if kept too long in here, at least most will not be.

Yes, it’s terrible.

We had a dwarf hamster dropped off and needed a cage quickly. I bought the cheapest cage that was bigger than a shoebox. Reviews told me it was poor quality, and it is. But I can make it work. Bad: >Door doesn’t hinge properly / partially gaping on one side. (Zip tied for now.) >The bar spacing is inconsistent and there’s wider gaps in sections. >As mentioned, ledge doesn’t fit well (floating corner) and you’ll need to bend the plastic ramp for it to reach the substrate. Not a big deal nor surprising! Good: >Big enough for a 9” silent Silent Runner wheel, hamster house, toys, and bowls, with clear floor space to spare. Decent for a single petite female dwarf hamster. >4” deep base for substrate. >Aesthetically... it’s not bad. I wouldn’t recommend it. But I know most (if not all) hamster cages aren’t worth what they’re priced at, which is what made spending $50 on this garbage IMO kind of worth it.

Not for rats!!!

This cage is WAY TOO SMALL for even one rat! Please don't do this to your rat. Ok for a mouse perhaps but nothing bigger!!!!

It works for a budget.

The accessories are cheaply made and don't connect and stay in cage well. I removed them and added my own shelves/ledges for my ratties. They are fine if you keep them busy!
