Chinchillas love peeing in corners so this guard helps keep their business inside the cage and not on the floor...

Both of my ferrets just love kicking food and bedding out of the cage. I'm hoping this helps prevent the mess.

Hopefully so I don't have to vacuum daily

Wanted to make sure the lower pans I am putting in the top do not allow feces to be knocked down into the bottom part of cage and its occupants.

To use with my Ferret Nation cage.
Dawn M on Jan 20, 2015
To try to keep any mess that my ferret makes in the cage. My little guy hasn't been very good when it comes to litter box training, he will use any side of the cage sometimes and I'd like to keep the cage bars and my floor clean.
Clarissa M on Jan 11, 2015
I have 6 ferrets and they are messy, this is to try and keep some of that mess in the cage.
Edward V on Dec 3, 2014
Saw many recommendations to use these with the cage.
Loretta M on Oct 12, 2014
i bought this to HOPEFULLY stop my little digging ferret from scattering her bedding all over the floor! :)
Angela C on Oct 11, 2014
My ferts use the lowest floor as the 'bathroom floor'. Even with three litter pans sometimes they're just not clean enough to use. I figure this should at least keep it in the cage and not on the floor... maybe :)
Damien C on Sep 26, 2014
The Midwest critter nation cages have nice features and are well built-sturdy but the trays are not very deep so litter scatters out. The scatter guards add on easily and keep the ferret litter from falling all over the floor and keep the ferret poo from getting stuck in the bars of the cage corners.
Malinda R on Jul 13, 2014
Needed to protect the plastic pan from my chewing rats so the scatter guard will keep them from chewing on the pan and the scatter guard will help keep the litter inside the cage.
Lynne M on Jun 7, 2014
My chincillas make a big mess in their cage and that should prevent their litter to spill all over the floor.

I just bought the critter nation cage for my two chinchillas, they are very active. When they start playing bedding amongst other things get all over the floor. The scatter guard is made for the cage so I figured I would give it a try.

Jessica J on Dec 15, 2017
I'm very confused. I ordered this thinking it came with the pan pictured and all that showed up were the guards. Is the pan not included?
Jen R on Jan 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This item is just the scatter guard as mentioned in the title of the product. The pan is a separate item.
Will these guards also fit the critter nation or do they only fit the ferret nation?
Kathy W on Aug 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: they fit critter nation I have6
How many guards come in each order? For example, if I select a quantity of 1 for the upper tray, does that send 4 pieces to completely surround my upper tray or is a selection of 1 only going to supply one of the metal sides/guards?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The scatter guard is a completely different tray that goes in the bottom of your cage. It has raised sides that are molded into the try that help keep litter in the cage and off your floor. A quantity of 1 would mean that you are ordering one complete scatter guard pan that is raised on all sides.
Is this a whole tray to replace existing flat tray? Or is it just the side guard that works with existing tray?
Desiree N on Jan 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It's just the side guards that attach to existing trays. I thought they were not helpful bc poop and bedding would just get shoved underneath and find it's way out still. Then it made it harder to clean
How big is the opening on the first level? Also, is the bottom shelf w/wheels optional? I need to cut down on the height of the unit?
A shopper on May 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Are you asking about the ferret nation cage or the scatter guard? The scatter guard is just a border that goes around the bottom pans to prevent spills. There is no opening. The borders just clip on. For the cage it is the same size as the top and the doors open the entire width of the cage. And you can leave the shelf and wheels off of you like. Just skip that portion of the instructions.
