This cage arrived exactly 5 days after ordered (ground UPS.) While the packaging did not include a bunch of excessive padding, and the shipping box did appear a bit "beat up" all contents were in tip-top shape and went together in minutes. While the directions say no tools are necessary, I'd recommend a rubber mallet in order to coax some of the corner/side pieces into their respective slots. Only 4 ramp hook extensions were included when 6 (3 ramps x 2 hooks) should have been packaged with the contents. We will have this cage for a very, very long time and I'm confident our ferrets and those thereafter will love it and be more healthy as a result. The finished product sits proudly in our sunroom, so that all our cute little fuzzies will have a great view of the outdoors and wildlife just inches away from them. Thanks for producing such a high-quality product.

Rated by 4 out of 5 Anthony Terrible assembly process, but has its pluses
I probably got a bad one because I had a terrible time putting it together. Nothing seemed to fit, pieces were bent, too large, not flush with other parts...it just seemed like a poor manufacturing job. All in all it took me about 3 hours to put it together.
I actually had to break out my rotary tool and grind down pegs just enough so they would actually fit(believe me, this cage needed it...I put my entire 160lb frame on top of one of the sides and it still wouldn't go in). On several occasions I had to use a hammer to bend pieces into shape as well as force pieces into place. I had to remove a piece of metal lodged inside a hole preventing a peg from going in. The doors do not close neatly, you have to squeeze the handles then push it in until it clicks. And to top it all off...the top piece just sort of sits there. I have a feeling an adventurous fuzzy would have no problem pushing up a corner and falling out. I'll have to get zip ties for it.
However, once it was all put together it really is a sight to behold. It looks nice, it's roomy and is very easy to access. It's like Ikea furniture, the assembly sucks and you probably don't want to move it much afterwards. Your fuzzies will love it though, and that'll make it all worthwhile.

Why did you choose this?
does it have a wire bottom?
Best Answer: Sorry it took a minute to reply but yes and no it does but they're covered by the plastic pans that slide in and the bars on the bottom of the top level actually make it very convenient for hanging tunnels and hammocks and the pans are great because you can just pull them out and clean them off for the price this cage is wonderful I absolutely love it I hope this helped :)
Can the middle section be removed, so that it makes one large cage?
Best Answer: Yes, you can do that - but it has to be done as you are putting the cage together, it is sandwiched in between other metal rims.
what demensions are the ramps?
Best Answer: Approximate dimension of the internal ramp is 18" x 5.5" .
what is the dimensions?
Best Answer: 36"L x 25"W x 63 1/4"H
Is this two cages? like can one ferret be put in the bottom and the other in the top and them not get to each other? Ive got two that get along and a third that the other two like to attack so he is In a small cage at the moment, I must do something.
Best Answer: Yes. It could be easily adapted to be seperated. For the assembly it really is two cages and a base.
The middle of the cage has an access cut-out and so does the plastic pan/tray. You might could find another solid tray without the cut-out and use in the middle shelf OR make your own trays from coro-plast (found at home depot with the plexi-glass). If you do that leave flaps long enough to make walls to contain messes. We bought this cage/condo for our ginea pigs and they had some compatibility issues, we thought we were going to have to do the same thing, which really made this cage appealling. The shelves and ramps can moved so the lower shelf could be on the opposite side of the cut-outs to hopefully prevent chew-throughs. Good Luck! By the way, we still got coro-plast and cut in 4" stips high to build walls and contain messes because the trays are only about an inch deep. We did that on the back and a side to protect our house walls.
Will this cage hold sugar gliders? I'm trying to decide between this and the Critter Nation Small Animal Cage Double Unit which is more expensive but has smaller spacing, thanks
Best Answer: Critter Nation wires are closer than Ferret nation. But since we do not have sugar gliders can not say which is better. Google sugar gliders and you will find all kinds of info. That is how we have learn about our chinchillas.
Would this hold sugar gliders? I'm trying to decide between this one and the Critter Nation Small Animal Cage Double Unit that is more expensice but with smaller spacing, thanks!
Best Answer: I have Chinchillas - it good for them. But the spacing is larger than the other model. I would question how big is the sugar glider's head? If there is a chance it can fit thru the spacing and get stuck - go with the smaller spaced cage.
Can this cage be taken back apart once it is put together? I know I'll be moving in about a year and I'm worried about how well it'll transport.
Best Answer: Short answer - yes. We ended up using a rubber mallet on a couple of the "insert tab A into slot B" connectors, so had to use a good amount of strength and "oomph" to de-assemble it - but as long as nothing is too badly bent, it actually comes apart fairly easily for a human - a ferret could not accomplish it.
Is this cage good for gunia pigs?
Best Answer: I don't think so. The cage has multiple levels and I think a guinea pig would just poop and pee all over it. It would be a real headache to clean. The cage does not have deep enough sides for bedding and guinea pigs are near impossible to box train.
What r all the accessories that come with cage double unit?
Best Answer: It comes with the ladders and the plastic flooring that is removable for cleaning.
