great habitat

Very good cage for 1 adult rat. Built well and room to move and hang items.

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.

rusty cage

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

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!

Far too small!

I´m very disapointed that this is made and marketed for rats. It is way too small for rats to live in permanently! It´s great as a travel cage, or for holding them, but PLEASE do not make your furbabies live in this! Rats should never live alone, and this is not large enough for even one!

Not suitable for any small pet

This cage is way too small. Not at all suitable for any small pet. This cannot be used as a permanent home. It would only be reasonable to use this to TEMPORARILY house my rats when cleaning their cage, vet trips, etc. Please do not use as a permanent home.
