So I have two female rats and had been looking for a large cage that fitted in my small room. This was perfect as it's almost as tall as me and fitted nicely into my cramp room.
I didn't put the wheels on and the shelves I covered so that their paws didn't slip through and I didn't bother with the mesh at the bottom, all to protect their feet. But I reused the mesh at the bottom for something else so it's all good.
Brought this as my first rat cage after searching the internet. Delivered on time, there were slight dents that we noticed when putting it together but now it's all together they can't be seen/have been pushed back out. Overall it was easy enough to put together but needs two people.
We got 2 young female rats and the bar spacing is plenty small enough - I have no concerns that they will get through. The cage looks good and isn't an eye sore in the living room. Easy to clean and gives the girls plenty of height to go up and down.
Ordered Thursday night and arrived Saturday. Very well made cage and perfect for two baby rats. We have removed the rack over the bottom tray and covered the ladders and shelves in fleece to protect their feet. We were worried they would push open the front flap so have used a clip to stop them. Plenty of room to hang hammocks (purchased from them) and toys. They seem to love it. We were limited on space and searched for ages before we found this one which fits perfectly. It's the first time we have used this company and they have been excellent. We did order plastic shelf which will give more "floor" space, but don't feel they need it at the moment.
Great cage, only downside was that the side panels came dented and bent so I had to bash them out again in order to put it together and the instructions were shocking! Fortunately it was easy to put together with a bit of common sense. Plus side is the goos love the space and it looks fab in the living room :)
Super cage - doesn't take up too much space and is nicer looking than most! 3 rats - very happy
