Why are some pet playpens not able to be shipped to California
Answer by bbbbApr 09, 2022
Most of the time items can't be shipped to CA is because they have high lead content. This means you wouldn't want it anyways

Couldn't a cat scratch it's way out of the windows or doors?
Answer by ChewyJun 27, 2017
While the mesh is made to be durable under regular use, cats purposefully clawing on it can damage it. It's important to supervise your cat while this item is being used.

Was the bottom made detachable for washing purposes?
Answer by ChewyDec 21, 2020
The portable playpen has a removable top and bottom.

Is it big enough for 4 cats?
Answer by ChewyJul 09, 2017
The OxGord Portable Pet Playpen will be able to fit multiple furbabies, so long as they can comfortably fit in the dimensions of 48 (length) x 48 (width) x 25 (height) inches.

Great for price.

Look, I think its a great product for the price and size. Sorry your animal is a little maniac and tries to claw its way out of the pen. That isn't the companies fault. Go and buy a heavy duty one then if your animal isn't calm when put in an enclosure. Anyway, im using this for pigeons and silkie chickens and its great! Keeps the mess of them throwing their food out and plent of room to stretch.

Just OK, not good for cats

I ordered this as a playpen for my two kittens, with the intention of using it outdoors. Unfortunately, the zipper lasted about five minutes against a pair of teething kittens, so it couldn't be used outdoors. We used it as an indoor cat lounge for about two weeks before they ripped up the flimsy fabric with their little claws. The playpen arrived nicely folded up in its tote bag (which was a primary reason why I bought it), but I could not get it to fold back up properly to fit in the bag, no matter how I tried. It came with no instructions, so spent two hours looking for some kind of instructional video on how to fold this specific playpen: nothing. One of the poles snapped in my efforts to fold the playpen, and poked through the fabric a few days later. If you have small, docile critters like rabbits and guinea pigs, this playpen MIGHT work... but if you have cats, dogs, or ferrets, don't waste your money. Spend a few extra dollars something sturdier that will last.

Very Portable!

My cat really enjoys sitting in this playpen and watching nature with human supervision. (She would prefer to be frolicking freely in the backyard catching all the birds, but this playpen is an acceptable alternative). It's a good size for her to pace in and it's VERY easy to fold up and put away after use. The zippers don't seem to be super sturdy, but it's otherwise great.

OK. Not 48” as advertised

This pen works for short term. Kitten claws easily made holes in the bottom. Frustratingly, the enclosure is only 45” not 48”. I bought a washable pad for a 48” enclosure & it is way too big.

Not good for puppies

I recently adopted a 12 week old Wire Fo-Tzu and bought this pen to keep him contained when i’m showering and whatnot. It’s a huge space for him to play but I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone with a wild pup! He zipped his way out of the side door and it had to be pinned closed. I would take him out and put him in through the top until he broke the top entrance zipper and was pulling it down into the pen. When he runs around in it, he moves the whole thing when he jumps into the side of it. He’s a whopping 4.1lbs but spunky! Not recommended for wild pups.

great for supervised playtime

I live in an apartment with little space, and my cat loves his leashed excursions outside. However, his newest favorite past time is taking off at full-speed to chatter at bugs. This playpen has been a life saver so we can both enjoy our time outside. The playpen is safe, secure, and the fine mesh means he can chatter at all the birds and bugs he sees without taking me on a sprint around the neighborhood. The best part is this playpen collapses and stores very easily in between uses, and is easy to clean with a mild cleaner and a towel.

Good playpen for small animals!

This playpen is actually pretty good for the money. The zipper is a bit weak and snags on the side door. The zipper on the top separates from the base and is a constant nuisance, however the overall utility is wonderful and the animals really like it.

Great buy!

Used to house four kittens, full size litter box and a pillow bed. Still had room to move around. Durable. Highly recommend.
