Great cage, quick shipping.

Haven't gotten my rats yet, but the cage is up and ready. Much easier to put together with two people. We did have to bend a couple pieces slightly and used a mallet a couple of times but it went together nicely. I got custom scatter guards from pet revolutions to keep any debris from being kicked out of the cage.

Could not fully assemble cage

I could not finish assembling the cage. One of the side pieces were bent and would not fit into square slot. I was fortunate enough to have a spare critter nation and used a piece from that to finish it.

Dissatisfied customer

After spending $300+ on this cage, the last thing I want to deal with is trying to get a new pan because one of them is warped. I called Chewy who has referred me to the manufacturer.

Would be perfect if it had borders... not best for untrained guinea pigs

The cage itself is a great size for my two guinea pigs. Even better that there's space underneath for storage. However, my guinea pigs kick the bedding out (along with their turds) all over the floor! There's no border around the cage to stop them from peeing on the wall and just kicking everything out. Maybe if you have potty trained piggies who use a box this would work. But mine just go as they please off the side of this thing. It's literally the perfect cage if it had some plastic or whatever around the side. Or maybe I just have very evil piggies, lol.

Bars break easily

I've had this cage for about 2 years and now and from the beginning the top of the cage has never fully closed which wasn't really a problem because my chinchilla is too big too fit through the opening but I do not recommend this cage if you plan on using it for a chinchilla or any other small animal that requires ledges. The bars are super flimsy and they break very quick. Ive had to move around the ledges in her cage about 3-4 times a month and I'm running out of places to put ledges so now I have to buy a new cage. Disappointed that with how expensive it was I have to replace it so quick.

Bent in shipping

Bars were bent during shipping and it’s so difficult to screw together, like the holes aren’t drilled enough for the support bars/bottom area so it’s very, very difficult to screw in.

The absolute best!

I would have nothing less for my darling boys. I have the double CN. I did invest in different trays for top and bottom through another shop because my guys love flipping litter. It’s so roomy for them with plenty of space for customization as their needs change - and I can change things around to give them something new. The storage is great. I use the top of the cage (get a step stool unless you’re over 6 feet tall!) and the bottom with baskets. Yes, it’s more expensive than others but your rats deserve the best. And it’s chew to proof and escape proof. I have 3 boys in mine - a friend has 4 in hers. Plenty of room for a mischief.

Love this cage, this is my third one

I've had two that I used for chinchillas. This one is for my three pet rats. It's really big for them so don't feel bad leaving them for a weekend. Cage came slightly bent in a few places. Mostly where the pieces connect. Took a screw driver to pry a couple pieces apart from each other, took a hammer to a couple other pieces. But once I got the pieces bent back to place it was fairly easy to get it together. I love this cage and am so happy with it!

Sturdy Spacious Cage!

The cage came in a well packaged strong and sturdy cardboard box, The instructions was really easy to follow. I am giving this a 5 Star since it is of good quality metal and has plenty of room. I do have some cons about it. 1)One of the cross bars I need to go buy a tap to clean out the threads so the bolt will thread. I had to leave it off the bottom part since I could not get the bolt in one side, it's not that too important piece since the two cage units interlocks on top of the stand anyways. 2)For what this unit costs you would think they would make the doors line up imagine you buying kitchen cabinets and one door is lower than the other, for 300.00 they should line up perfectly.

The very best cage EVER!!!! I’m 65. - soon to be 66 on February 1st plus I’m a woman. I’ve had many cages for small animals in my lifetime. I was able to put this cage together by myself. It’s very very sturdy, looks great in every room & is exceptionally easy to clean. Our Ferret, Mr Freddie, is absolutely in love with his new home. Thank you Chewy for carrying this high quality cage with a Chewy price (lower by $$$$$from pet shops)
