Product Reviews by Customers

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dweezil loves it! This is a great cage and ferret.com has it for one of the best prices around. The single level cage is great for my one ferret and being able to add a level if and when a new fuzzy comes along is a great bonus. My cage did have a couple slightly bent wires, but other than that I have no complaints. I definitely recommend anyone buying a Ferret Nation get an external ramp to give your ferret(s) easy access into and out of the cage. January 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this cage! I actually bought this cage for my rabbit. I had been looking at cages for rabbits and was not pleased about the actual amount of usable space inside them. My friend bought this one for her ferret so I decided to get this one too. Lucky my rabbit loves all the room she has and going up the ramp to her second level. It has all the room for her litter box and playhouse ect... We call it her bunny condo. Since I don't use litter shavings in this cage I was concerned that she might have trouble getting around in it (she hates any tile or hardwood floors,) but she has no trouble at all. The plastic seems to have a nonslip surface. I bought the ramp that connects from the cage to the floor too. When we come home from work we open the door and she can come in and out as she pleases. I am even considering buying a second one of these cages to keep at our cabin so when we go there for holidays we don't have to keep carting her cage around with us. Definately a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Ferret Cage I got this cage for Christmas and I love it! It's bigger than you may expect, but in a good way. The only complaint about it structurally is that some things were bent, but it was easily fixed. Other than that it was fairly easy to put together and took me about 35 minutes including bending back some places. This cage is perfect for 2 ferrets, and even 3, providing that they get ample time out of it. It's easy to clean, and you can place the shelf on either side you want, which is great. There are three options of which height you can put the shelf, another great feature. This brings me to the price. Ferret.com always has the best price for this cage, and more often than not they have it on sale. Last Labor Day it was $49.99, and I wish I had gotten it then. However, if you think it's too expensive here I suggest waiting until another sale. This is the best cage for ferrets, by far. January 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awsome Cage Couldn't Be Better! Rat Owner Assembly: Fairly easy, we did spend some time putting in the sides. You will need two people to put it together. Pet Approval: Our rats love it and couldn't be happier. They like that they can climb very high up. Pet Safety: Our large male rats can't escape but I am sure smaller rats could. I would recommand Critter Nation for smaller animals. Owner Approval: I am very happy with the cage. I love it's design and the double doors make cleaning so much easier, taking rats out is so much easier, and interacting with them so much easier. The cover on the ramp is nice. I really like the Rack at the bottum for storing stuff and the wheels make moving it around very easy. Quality: I think the cage is very well made. The plastic bottums if you take good care of them will last but you will need to replace them at some point. Price: The cheapest out there. It is reasonable for what you are getting December 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Cage! Before I purchased this cage I read the reviews but was still worried because I know a lof of companies have employees that post stellar reviews to help sell the products. I was skeptical that a cage could get ratings this high on it's own merit. I got my cage last night and pulled it out of the box and started putting it together. I only had to look at the instructions once to see which piece was the top. No tools required made this easy to put together and the best part is everything fit together perfectly! The final product was very sturdy and WELL worth the money. I didn't think it was possible for a cage to actually be 5 stars in all aspects but this one lives up to the rating! And even better my new fuzzy REALLY loves it! December 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for One Ferret Just got it and put it together today. It was pretty easy and it's nice and sturdy. It feels well made, which can't be said about most small animal cages. If you have a single ferret and/or they come out of the cage for a few hours a day, then this cage is great. My big male has plenty of room to move around when he has to be in the cage. December 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME this cage is fantastic, it was a breeze to put together, no tools required was an awesome addition. I noted some poeple said it is not as sturdy as the one with tools (models 140 and 141) my fur baby can not get out of his cage, its a secure as can be! He loves it, the second, half level is huge, that was one problem with all the other cages I looked at, the additional level just wasnt big enough. There is lots of places to hang hammocks from, which is great. The ladder comes with a cover to protect my babies feet, and the ramp is not to steep, my furbutt has no problem going up and down it. I would highly recommend this cage as it is spacious, safe, easy to put together and esthetically pleasing! October 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Ferret Cage BY FAR I Have plenty of space for my fur-babies. It'seasy to clean, a breeze to put together & sturdy construction! I have 2 for my 6 Ferrets. I give 5/5 stars! April 27, 2011

I have a Ferret Nation Double unit and I can say without a doubt that this is the bed small animal/ferret cage on the market!!! And PetSupplies has an amazing price!
Tami C on Oct 23, 2015
I spent a lot of time researching cages for my littler critter and every website/blog I came across raved about the quality and functionality of this cage.
Melissa R on Oct 12, 2015
does the pan slide out from bottom to clean?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, it does slide out. We find it easier to open the doors to clean the cage daily, and then about once a week we pull the tray all the way out, and take it outside for a deep cleaning :)
