excellent cage: easy to assemble, lasts forever, large, well designed, easy to clean, good looking, easy to access. Pet friendly. I have in this cage: ( I have a cage for each: sugar glider, chinchillas, rabbits, mice. I keep coming back to this cage. Worth the money and then some. Could even use as an aviary for birds, removing the mid level. I took out the mid level for my sugs. You can not go wrong with this cage.I have bought 9 total.
Kenneth M on Jun 16, 2018
I've been searching for a larger and overall better cage for my 2 rats. They're growing boys and I know they'll soon need more space! After much research and comparing of prices and brands, I came across this cage. 99.99% of reviews on it were perfect and I even watched youtube videos of people who own them. It seems to be an amazing cage and I can't wait for it to come in the mail. I'll definitely be posting a review when it does!
Jordan L on May 27, 2018
My Grandson has three pet rats and this cage will be great for them. They need more room now as they are getting larger. I like the shelf on the bottom for storage also.

Keyra J on Jan 25, 2018
I've had one for six years and it is very durable. I am expanding my chins living space, so it makes sense to buy this again since it has been so great for my babies. It provides lots of space for them to hop around.
Yi D on Jan 19, 2018
My chinchilla needed a new home and I like how easy the cage looks to clean and move about the house.

Miranda M on Jul 12, 2017
This was the best purchase yet. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cage. It is roomy for play when they can't come out and is safe and secure.
Carolyn H on Jul 5, 2017
In my opinion, this is the best rat cage on the market currently. The price that it was at right now for the value that this cage has is ridiculous. My three girls are going to be very, very happy :)

Michelle M on May 1, 2017
I raise sugar gliders and have two triple critter nations and two double and find these to be the best cages for my suggies. Its the right amount of room easy to clean and the doors open wide for easy cleaning and arranging of their toys and such.

Is it used for canaries?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This item accommodates a variety of small pets, such as rats, chinchillas, and sugar gliders.
cant the sections be closed off so 2 animals cant get to each other?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can! I have a double critter nation with an add on unit, and all are separate at the moment. I have two boy fancy rats in the bottom unit, two girls in the middle, and two girls on top. They can sniff each other but you just rotate the pan liners to block the openings that connect the units.
where can i find pans that have higher sides so that bedding and food don't come out of the cage so much? I see that some people mentioned that the ladder/ramp things come with fleece covers and that's great. are the shelves solid metal, solid plastic, or sort of a metal grate kinda thing? my current cage has all the levels covered with fleece bc the shelves are all metal grate-like.
Jordan L on May 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not really sure what you are asking. Critter nation has plastic trays that are easy to clean. There are grates but the also can be covered with the plastic shelf. I don't know what kind of animal you are using the cage for. I have sugar gliders - I did not use the middle grate so they have more room and I can fit tall toys.
I and other people have attached the middle grate under the bottom grate with zip ties and slide the large tray between the grates for easier cleaning. Also additional half trays can be purchased if you like. I have 4 critter nation cages with 3 half trays in each. I don use the fleece on the ladders - I would be concerned about nails getting caught. I don't use bedding for gliders. I use brown paper bird liner sheets it's easy to keep clean. I hope this helps
Are the ramps and levels safe for rats feet? I have a cage now that I have fleece covering all the levels bc they’re made of bars.
Jordan L on May 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Actually, the critter cage is all bars, too. You can get plastic shelving ( sometimes, they come with the critter cage), but I ordered two metal bases, as that way I can use paper litter. Paper litter is miore fun for my rats!Or, you can just get rhe side metal inserts, which work just as well with the bases. Your ratties will chew the plastic mid-level shelves and the plastic bases, which is anothet reason I like the metal bases. Bass Equipment sells them. Love the critter cage, though!
Is the middle full size floor pan removable to make the cage more completely open from top to bottom?
Melissa J on Feb 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi from what I can see it appears you could remove the middle wired panel which is actually the bottom of the top portion of the cage however I would check with the manufacturer to be sure removing it won’t jeopardize the integrity of the structure
I can tell you it’s extremely well built easy to clean and for the size it’s not an eye sore
I purchased this when it was on sale and got for a get price
My 2 ferrets love it (when their not running around the house! Hope I helped
Does the top pan slide out? if not, how do you clean it?
Patty M on Sep 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, none of the pans slide out. I vacuum out the pans and then use a mild natural cleanser (Odo-Ban - you can get it at Home Depot) to clean off any wee/poop and then towel dry and line with newspaper and then put in habitat confetti on top of the newspaper. Easy really. Hope this helps!!
Can I put 2 of these cages together?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The units are designed to be stacked, not connected side by side. It could be done but would require modification to the cage like cutting the side bars out.

I have 6 rats and am looking for something eviulant to a 6 story ferret house. Will this work and be big enough for my babies?
Christina R on May 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Im not sure how it compares to a six story ferret house, but this case will definitely hold 6 rats comfortably. I've had up to 18 rats (When my girl had a litter of 15) for about two months and they were all pretty content. Of course 18 is a lot and defiantly not ideal or recommended, but 8 should be fine compared to that :) it's a little rattie mansion

does it come with the ramp covers?
A shopper on May 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am sorry but this does not come with ramp covers. In a pinch I have used material-appropriate unmatched socks
Can they be combined to be one cage, so there is no divider in the middle?
Tabby C on Apr 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Essentially this cage IS ONE unit. When you assembly the bottom, the top of the cage will have an opening in it and when you assemble the top cage the bottom of that cage will have opening in it and you pair these two openings together and the critter has free range between the bottom of the cage and the top of the cage. So the cage is truly TWO stories with access between the bottom and top cages. I have 3 of these cages for my chinchillas and they are the BEST!! Easy to assemble (should have two persons to help assemble but I did all three of my cages by myself) and very secure for my chinchillas. Hope this helps!
Is there any way if I got a 3 stack to separate the cages to two separate cages??
A shopper on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: i did that. the only thing is if you are just using it as a DCN and a SCN the single will have the small nubs on the bottom. mine sit on a desk the same size so its no big deal. also had it on a smaller table and it just hangs over. if you just buy a single you can add the 3ed part on top of that to make 2 DCNs
Can the wheels be removed?
CoriRayann on Apr 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can put the cage together & just NOT put the wheels on. Personally, I find it HELPFUL to have them on when washing day comes....the cage is heavy (almost 100 pounds) and it would be hard on your back to physically lift it from where it sits all the time to where you're going to wash it.
Is this suitable for rats?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If it isn't, I'm in deep, deep trouble, because I have 14 Lady Rats living in one!

The Girls scamper around and climb the walls and race from top to bottom and back again. The cage is surprisingly easy to clean because the doors swing all the way open, allowing access to all corners of it to remove any grunge.

I should note that I have smaller cages that I put everyone in while I am cleaning because there are just too many of them to keep track of and do anything else.

This is a very heavy duty and sturdy cage, yet the rollers on the bottom make it easy to move to vacuum under. If I had room for more than one, I would probably have one.
Cleaning?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: First let me state, I have this cage and I love it! Ive used other types of cages in the past for my rats but this is literally the best around. It is coated metal. It wipes clean. The trays slide out and can be cleaned off and put back in or wiped down in the cage. Ive even known people to take their cage outside and hose it off one a year as part of their spring cleaning. By far the easiest cage to clean that Ive found.
Is this cage suitable for gerbils?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You may use this cage for any small animals
Does it come assembled? If not, what is the packaging size?

Is this good for a small rabbit?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it would be ok for a small to medium one. Very spacey and can not be chewed. There are ramps with provided covers to be easy on the feet, keep clean. I love how the doors open wide to allow easy access to your pet, just be careful they don't jump out when you open the doors.

Sharon on Dec 15, 2016
