This cage is not easy to assemble because it is just so flimsy. It collapses on itself so easily during assembly that it’s difficult to get it up. Once up, it has the soft, water proof material that you have to Velcro on to the bottom of the assembled cage to give your cage further strength. It’s a real job cleaning the material because it lacks a sturdy base. When cleaning, the whole cage rattles and moves along with the material, making it a very difficult job because there is no hard base. And you may ask, ‘why not just remove the material?’ Well, with 18 Velcro straps and a super flimsy frame, I don’t think anyone would like to do that every time they have to clean the cage. As I have mentioned it is not sturdy at all. The lid it comes with is very flimsy and when you have the middle divider in place, it is impossible to close this lid if you have fleece lining your cage, so please be aware of this. It’s a design flaw with the divider because the divider has 4 downward facing pieces that need to be attached on to the cage by pushing down on to the cage so they sit on the cage for support. Because your fleece or any thick material you use is below, it stops the divider from sitting flush with the area on the cage that the divider needs to clip on to. This not only affects the divider making it unusable, but the lid will NOT close at all unless you force the lid down and hope that you can clip it down on to the frame with the clips that come attached to the lid. This makes it a terrifying ordeal for your guineas especially when the divider is being used during the bonding stage and your guineas we already under stress. I would not invest in this cage. Look in to making your own C&C cage which is what I’ve ended up doing as this cage is too flimsy and way too small for two guineas.
This cage is the worst cage ever!! I bought this to help with re bonding my male guinea pigs after a disagreement. It was rocket when assembled, loose corners that needed tightening with pliers the side doors are very small for adult guinea pigs and my boys are very clever they can lift the security bar and escape so hight unsafe in my opinion. Impossible to comely clean as the wood shaving, carefresh type bedding will get caught behind the bars inside the green base so I need to dismantle the cage every other day and try a put it back together again this process takes me around 3-4 hours as it never goes back the same way I had it. I also have 10 guinea pigs and every piggy that I put in this cage became very depressed very quickly. THIS IS THE WORST CAGE I HAVE EVERY OWNED?!!!!
My guinea pigs have chewed threw this cage and only had it last week the sawdust is coming out of the cage as the side is chewed it was very expensive and extremely disappointed with this won’t be buying again!
Bunny chewed Through And outgrew this in less than 6 months. Also cleaning it requires taking everything out of the pen. Good for gerbals or hamsters, but definitely not rabbits. Also metal frame came weirdly bent in an almost circular shape.
This case is too flimsy and hard to clean, The spacing never lines up and you'll get bedding stuck in corners and hard to reach places. I would recommend everyone to build a proper C&C cage instead, save you money and headaches when cleaning.
