My 2 rats love it so far, 7/4/2017

99leadballoons from Dallas, TX

Assembly was mostly easy, but the side panels needed a hammer to straighten out the bottom pegs and the top latches. It's huge - I could fit in it, and my sister joked that with all the accessories I added it would probably go for $1.1 million on House Hunters in Hoboken. Having the full-front doors makes cleaning and rearranging things so easy. The doors even come off and on fairly easily. The shelf is great, I can store just about everything under the cage - bedding, food, extra liners, box of miscellaneous treats & chew toys, etc. I don't have any bedding in the shallow bottom pan, instead I use two corner litter boxes with shavings, and the high sides of the boxes seem to keep most of the shavings from falling out. I haven't covered the wire ramp but there is a fleece cover for it included with the cage. Daily/weekly cleaning looks to be quite easy, but the size of the cage precludes a deep clean of all the wires with a hose/shower without taking it apart.

Nice quality for the price, 1/10/2017

meg1974 from Montara, CA, USA

We bought this cage for our two chinchillas and it's perfect for them. The quality is very good and it's nice how wide the doors open to clean the cage. We did purchase a stainless steel bottom pan to replace the plastic so the chins wouldn't chew and replaced the plastic shelf with wood as well. Now it's the perfect home for our chins. The cage was difficult to put together but overall we are happy with our purchase.

Nothing is better for Pet Rats than the Critter Nation!, 10/19/2015

Mandyy from Jackson, NJ

Midwest's Critter Nation cage, single or double is just the best, horizontal bars make climbing easy for my Ratties! I highly recommend it!

Great cage., 9/28/2015

Marsie from Kansas

Before I get in to the stuff that made this cage not perfect, let me say that this is a FANTASTIC cage. I got the single nation and then the add -on so I suppose I technically have a double nation. This cage is a super quality and size for the price, especially on this website; the cheapest I've found it online. Before this cage, I had a Petco rat manor that cost almost as much as a single nation and was completely not worth it. Cleaning this cage is a breeze compared to taking that cage apart each week. My rats really love the extra space. Over all, I would just go ahead and buy a single or double nation for your rats. I also appreciated that they came with ramp covers! Now, these are minor things, but flaw wise, these cages are not entirely tool free construction. I needed a a hammer to force in ill-fitting pieces. Also the two levels can be separated but you'll want to straighten out the ramp and put something over it if you have babies or small females.

Sturdy and Strong, but a bit Pricey, 9/22/2015

Julian from

This cage is very sturdy, and clearly takes a lot to break. That said, many of the pieces arrived bent out of shape, so they will need to be bent back to fit. Building it is awful, but one together, it will last a lifetime. It is pretty spacious, rolls well, and the included shelf is pretty nice. It's just a bit pricey, although still worth it anyway.

Great Cage for Rats!, 9/21/2015

Coffee from Indianapolis, IN

I have two boy rats and the single level critter nation is perfect! There is plenty of room for toys, hideaways, a wheel, and hammocks. I could easily get two more rats and still have plenty of room. You will need a rubber mallet to put this together, though. Other than that it is easy to assemble and very sturdy. This is a cage that will last a long time.

After a lot of research this was the best cage out there and this is the cheapest place to get it. Delivery was quick and everything was intact. Assembly is difficult, so rope someone into helping you ;)

Good for the price, 6/11/2015

Samanthariedl from

It's a really great cage. I got it for my two rats because they chew apart anything plastic. They have tons of space and they're huge rats. The only complaint is that I had to hammer some pieces together because they don't match up perfectly. Once you get the cage together there's no way it's ever going to come apart.

Had to fix the cage soon as I opened it!, 4/15/2015

CandCRatLove from

So I just have some warnings on this product. It is a sturdy cage once you get it together. However the instructions are not real clear. There is little black caps that they fail to tell you needs removed upon assembling the cage. The cage itself... well some of the panels were bent upon taking it out of the box. The latches on the doors are rusted. They claim its no tools needed. However you do need a rubber mallet. So assembling this cage was not easy due to the panels being bent and the sauntering was very sloppy. If you are willing to work on the cage a bit yourself it is a sturdy cage. However for the price you shouldn't have to work that hard on a new cage. Nor should the latches be rusted.

Large, Durable Cage, 4/13/2015

CatsNRats7 from

We purchased this cage to house 2 pet rats in a home full of cats. It was easy to assemble and is made of sturdy metal. The large double-doors make accessing the interior of the cage easy whether to interact with the pets or clean. We feel confident that our children open and close the cage easily and never worry that the rats can get out or the cats can get in.

Awesome!, 3/18/2015

xxmyamxx from Saint Louis, MO, USA

Very sturdy. Easy to clean. Very large in size. A lot for the money. Although it was very very very difficult to put together. Tears were shed. The holes weren't punched large enough. I had to file down parts just to be able to fit it in. The instructions are a bit unclear. It arrived fairly quickly.

Variety of uses, 12/21/2014

shai from British Columbia, Canada

I have purchased the double unit ferret nation cage for my 3 ferrets and its the best purchase I have made and very affordable, now I have purchased the critter nation single unit and taken out the shelf and I turned it into a flight cage for my green cheek conure. I was having a really hard time finding affordable, durable flight cages online and It finally clued to me that I should look into this cage and it was the best option. Great cage. going to purchase scatter guard to keep seeds and feathers in but over all awesome purchase you wont be disappointed!

The *perfect* cage for my two pet rats!, 8/27/2014

davidvanbeveren from Edinboro, PA 16412, USA

We were looking for a cage for our two rats when a Petco representative recommended we check out ferret.com, for this exact cage - and we couldn't be more happy. Our ratties have more than enough room to play, it's easy to move around - and best of all - EASY to clean too! It's the perfect cage for rats, I could see now why it was recommended. I don't own a ferret - so I don't know how this cage would do for them - but I would imagine just as amazingly. Thanks for reading!

Great price, shipping time, and product., 6/10/2014

Quizzle from California Bay Area

I searched around a lot, and this was one of the best prices I found for a SCN, plus the shipping rates are crazy low (I paid $3.99). The shipment tracking updated often, and the cage arrived exactly when they said it would, and in good condition. The SCN itself is a fantastic cage. It's nice-looking, spacious, easy to clean, and the fact that the entire front opens means you can reach any part of the cage without a struggle.

Very pleased, 4/30/2014

Christine from Seattle, WA, USA

I love this cage and so do my ratties. Plenty of room for toys and space to run. It's also very easy to clean. Assembly was easy enough, but I do recommend a rubber mallet and the wheels are quite tough to get in place.

Wonderful cage, 4/12/2014

Emilypb from Jacksonville, FL, USA

The cage arrived in perfect condition. I had heard horror stories about the boxes being destroyed and the parts being damaged when people bought from Petsmart or Petco. I did not experience any of that when buying from ferret.com. Now about the cage... FABULOUS quality. I am really thrilled with the size and my ratite girls love it. I can not say enough about how great the cage and ordering from ferret.com turned out. Definitely recommend. The price was also the best I have seen.

Worth the Hassle., 11/9/2013

Manda from

I purchased this product about two months ago. The cage arrived within two weeks of purchase. One of my panels was defective. I contact Ferret.com who got back to me very quickly and sent out the replacement panel. I received it in a few days. The wrong panel was sent by mistake. I explained the issue to them and they sent me another replacement. I received it a few days later. The cage itself was kind of a pain to put together because the cage comes in several different panels and pieces. All of the hassle and fighting with the cage to get it assembled was totally worth it. I have 3 rats who were quickly getting to big for their current cage. They LOVE this cage. They love to climb the high sides of it and run up and down the ramp. I would definitely recommend this cage to friends. The only thing I would note is that you have to be careful with the finish on the cage, I found that it flakes off easily.

Looks wonderfull, difficult assembly, 6/19/2013

Kayden from Southern California

I really love this thing, looks great, it is WAY bigger than the picture (unless those kids are like...6 feet tall). Only down side is it was faulty. The assembly took several days because my carpenter had to come fix it; the peg holes didn't align well enough/weren't square enough to get the sides in. So, great product, "special" manufacturing. The base pan also arrived cracked, but it still works.

Great cage but pan too shallow, 2/23/2010

Cits from Walnut Creek, CA

Great design, well made, easy to clean. Easy to hang hammocks and decorate. 3 heights for shelf to attach. Wire spacing quite narrow so baby rats cannot escape. Rated only 4 stars because the ~1 inch deep pans are insufficient if you have little females who back up into the corner to urinate. I have not put my girls in this cage but just my male rats for fear they would pee outside. A Urine guard is needed for those who rats back up against the wire to potty. I put in the cage bottoms from 2 rat cages one with alfalfa pellets so they can use that for potty. The rats love the space. Superpet Silent Spinner attaches easily and securely. Midwest has a deep plastic pan "in the works". So waiting to get that. There is a metal aftermarket pan from another manufacturer available. But prefer plastic since does not mark up bathtubs and lighter weight, no rust. Another solution find 2 cat boxes that would fit.
