how many rats can live in the single story?
Answer by ChewyJul 31, 2018
The general rule of thumb for rat cage size is at least 2 cubic feet of space per rat. This cage can hold around 3 to 4 rats.

Are the shelves metal or plastic? Our chinchilla chews through the plastic shelves so looking for something more durable
Answer by ChewyMay 21, 2018
This Cage has wide expanse shelves with full width plastic pan floors to provide maximum play area and to prevent dangerous falls.

would this be good for my guinea pig
Answer by ChewyAug 06, 2020
This multi-level cage is not suitable for guinea pigs. While some small animals enjoy climbing on multi-level platforms in the cage, guinea pigs generally prefer flat, open spaces. Guinea pigs tend to be scared of heights, and even a gentle ramp leading up to a second level may be too frightening for a guinea pig to attempt. For a Guinea pig, we carry the ""MidWest Cleo Guinea Pig Cage", the "MidWest Guinea Habitat Guinea Pig Home" and the "MidWest Wabbitat Deluxe Rabbit Home".

What's the measurements of the pans?
Answer by ChewyAug 10, 2018
The pan measures 34 5/8" x 22 7/8" Inches.

Awesome cage!!

Very pricey for sure but it is PERFECT for my little chinchilla man!! I bought the Ferret Nation version which is the same thing but since it was slightly cheaper at the time. If youre looking to save a bit of money tho I would say the Full Cheeks 4 Story Small Pet Habitat is just as good, with the same security doors but also small latch doors that may need an additional lock on them.

Disappointed in quality

The cage has function for it's size, shape, and double doors but it arrived in a heavily damaged box from chewy. It has multiple manufacturing flaws, the coating is chipped off and bars are bent and welded in crooked. In many areas it was like the coating wasn't allowed to dry before packing. It took a rubber mallet to assemble and reshape multiple pieces. there was not a piece that was in good condition, all had coating issues. The trays were warped, took time in sun to reshape to lay semi flat. Disappointed. Ordered for a ferret, bars are as described so the cage is suitable for rats, including young rats.

hard to clean

Love this cage for the most part. It has more then enough space for my ferrets. It is hard to clean tho. The inclines are hard to clean and the texture of the pans makes them hard to clean. I end up pressure washing it every few months but it holds up!

Great purchase!

Absolutely love it and my Guinea pigs love it too! It’s perfect for them especially when they have to be separated! I have two on top and two on the bottom! Perfect running room!

great cage for 3 male rats

Some pieces did come a little bent, but it was shipped in pieces in a box, that's bound to happen. My boyfriend was able to bend everything into place and we got it all set up pretty quickly. The boys have a great time running all about this 2 story cage. Easy to clean too!

Lots of work

This cage was the most time consuming thing I've done in one day. I had to take it apart 3 different times. One of the panels was broke so I had to unbend/ fix it. I was missing a few different pieces. Panel bars were bent. It's definitely a big cage, which I wanted. And fast shipping. But overall, plan on at least 2 hrs to put it together.

Great, BUT...

The cage is great. We are replacing an older one that we had bought used for our ferret, and figured that we should go with something familiar. The only issue was that many of the side pieces of the cage were difficult to place because of bent pegs that required tools to get them unbent. Either parts of the cage were not measured correctly or assembled correctly before packing. These were not issues caused by any sort of damage from travel. Other than that, the cage is sturdy once built, clean, and roomy.

Beware of bent parts

This is a wonderful cage, best of the market! It’s just a shame the parts were bent. Luckily my husband took a hammer and bent some back to shape so it would ring the holes, but we shouldn’t have to do this with something labeled as “no tools needed”. It’s not easy to assemble as one person and you will need another to hold things in place. Not to mention the instructions are printed in black and white and the pictures are blurry, dark, and unhelpful.

I've heard nothing but good things about this cage before I bought it. It's quite spacious, exactly as advertised, and shipped in 2 days. Plenty of room for toys, hides, food bowls, etc. However, the box arrived in a fairly rough condition, with damage and dust. It was clearly stored in a warehouse for months before shipping. Some of the wire was bent slightly, though not enough to be unusable. The parts also struggled to go together in some places and were extremely difficult to build. There doesn't appear to be anything to hold the trays to the wire mesh, and there is a nearly 1 inch gap between the wire and tray on the upper floor. Some of the wire even has little sharp bits that poke out and may need to be sanded down. When I finished assembly, my fingers were coated in a black dust. I expect higher quality from a $300 product.
