Overall this is a great cage! Larger than I was expecting/envisioning and overall great design. You really need to read the instructions and follow them closely. There were a few of our pieces that seemed to be bent but we were able to get them to work/bend them as needed. I love that the bottom pan is metal like the rest of the cage and not plastic. We were able to end plenty of enrichment for our rats. I think this cage is going to be perfect for our two days.
First off putting this cage together had a few frustrations. The side guards don’t match up on one corner. The measurements online are bit confusing as far as height on the stand. The cage is not attached to the stand, this is a huge issue for me. I have dogs and a toddler. I see this being an accident waiting to happen of getting knocked over. Its just not right for what I was hoping for. I love oxbow products, they need to consider making a few modifications on this. The stand not connecting is the biggest issue causing me to return this.
The cage is well made in terms of materials, and I like the solid ramps and shelves to be easy on the feet, and the storage at the bottom! The cage design needs to be re-worked, though. It's too tall, so the cage and shelves is a bit too skinny to add a lot of enrichment items. The doors are only at the front of the cage, and a bit small, so it's hard to access the back and corners for cleaning.
This is an excellent cage for our chinchilla. There's plenty of room and it's very sturdy. Definitely recommend, but be sure to pay attention to the assembly instructions.
