Couldn't be happier!, 6/20/2017

PayAk from Rochester, MN

We bought this double unit habitat for my son's two ferrets. We couldn't be happier with this choice! They have plenty of room to run around and play. It is extremely sturdy. I had no issues with bent parts. There were a couple of times where the corner squares didn't quite align, but we were able to muscle everything into the proper location without resorting to a rubber mallet. The bottom shelf has adequate room for storage. I was able to find storage containers at Target that fit perfectly underneath to hold extra food, litter, and supplies. I also like that the doors open up the entire front of the habitat. It makes it very easy to clean.

Love it, but..., 5/27/2017

Lauren from

This cage was an absolute nightmare to assemble. It should have been easy, half of it was just sliding pegs into slots, but the side pieces didn't fit into the back pieces right at all. I spent forever on all 4 side pieces trying to bend the metal trying to get it to fit into the slots. But that being said, once it was finally assembled it is a great cage. Very sturdy, has tons of space. I love that you can hook the ramp to the bottom of the top level to separate the two levels. So I can have the ferrets in one level while I clean the other. And since it's on wheels, it is easy to move around if needed. The trays slide out easily for cleaning. I don't have a single complaint about it after assembly. The cost is also lower here than anywhere else I can find it after I applied the 25% off coupon, fantastic value!

Perfect if pieces fit, 5/23/2017

Mykaelakayy from

I ordered one of these and the side panels were bent and impossible to get into the slots. So I contacted ferret.Com and received another cage, that had the same issue! My roommate and I had to get a hammer to bang the poles into the correct positions and that still didn't work. So after receiving a THIRD cage with messed up bars, we just used the hammer and spent 2 hours banging the poles straight so they could go into the slots. Ferret.Com was great, Midwest is my issue right now with the quality of their 3 crates I received.

Great product and price, 5/15/2017

LHoney from

I ordered this and when it got here, pretty quickly, I was ready to put it up and move my ferret out of a one story to a four story, I ordered a large hammock also, anyway he absolutely loves the cage, he passes out all over it and looks so comfy in the most uncomfy places. However, make sure you have a hammer when puttiing the cage together, it's pretty easy to assemble besides that though, one of my best online purchases.

Great Cage!, 5/2/2017

bandrade8613 from

My Ferrets love this cage so much! It's huge, nothing is "easy" to assemble but this is easy as assembling something could be. But you will need a rubber mallet, i personally used a 5 lb weight coated in rubber, close enough to a rubber mallet lol. It's definitely an investment but its worth every penny.

So much more then I imagined, 4/19/2017

JayK from

I bought this after many weeks of searching through reviews. Once the box arrived i was concerned about the condition the cage would be in since the box was torn in so many places. Once I unpacked it though everything was in great shape. I put it together by myself, it took me about 45 minutes. I only used a mallet once for the last few corners since they were still tight. The only negative I found about the design of the cage is the pans are not nearly deep enough for keeping the bedding from ending up on the floor. I simply bought a large cement mixing tub from Home Depot to replace the bottom pan since it was deep enough to hold bedding. I would definitely recommend this cage to everyone who wants a McMansion for their ferret.

Good cage, 3/29/2017

Lorek from Nashville, TN, USA

This cage offers lots of space for the boys but is very hard to assemble and really requires at least 2 people. It was bent in shipping making assembly very difficult. They have toys and hide outs and seem to enjoy it. The large double doors making cleaning and feeding very easy. Have to be careful sometimes the doors dont latch very well and they can push them open from inside.

Happy Ferrets!, 3/28/2017

KDrop from Dallas, Tx

My husband and I put this together in about 2 hours. For the most part it was fairly easy. You really do need a rubber hammer/mallet to put it together. Some of the pieces fit so closely it was difficult to insert, but a little hammering made it work. We are still adjusting the ferret beds and shelves, but so far they are very happy. They rarely got into their old cage by choice, now they go in this one all the time. We did buy new bowls for the sides which worked out great since the bars are not conducive to water bottles. We also bought the ramp for the outside of the cage. My female uses it well, my male just kind of slides/falls down it. You do have to be a little creative in hanging their hammocks or cubes. We bought some new ones and surprise, they still like their old ones best. :-)

Best cage for ferrets, 2/14/2017

Sm25 from Bismarck, ND, USA

I really like this product. It is very sturdy and great for my 3 ferrets. I also bought the add-on unit, if you do this just beware that it is very tall with the three sections. It was almost up to my ceiling. I put it together myself in an hour and a half for all three sections including the add-on. Assembly was mostly easy except the side panels. Sometimes the knobs and holes did not line up. A rubber mallet would have definitely been helpful, but I just used a regular hammer and a towel to not chip the Coating. Very easy to clean. The only problem I've had is that my ferrets can push up on the Shelf and knock it off the holes where it's inserted. I wish there was a security latch for the shelves. Otherwise amazing product, i definitely recommend for ferrets

Great Cage, 2/10/2017

GeeS from Barnegat Township, NJ, USA

I absolutely LOVE this cage! I have 3 ferrets. Its more than roomy enough. The ramps are great for them to travel from shelf to shelf and the ramp covers are great for their little feet! There are lots of areas to hook hammocks and toys, the ways you can accessorize this cage is endless!. This cage is a breeze to clean. I love that the doors open wide and the shelves come. The doors lock securely so there are no security breaches! There is a roomy storage shelf underneath the cage to store food and litter. The metal is sturdy and it has a nice finish. The only minor downfall is assembly. If you're not handy you may need some help putting this cage together. You'll definitely need a screwdriver and rubber mallet as some of the openings did not line up perfectly . But dont let that stop you. Its a great cage you and your ferrets will love!

Challenging assembly; overall good cage, 1/23/2017

Nbse from

Multiple pieces of the cage did not align, making assembly somewhat challenging. The shelves, also, do not sit level.. One of the doors needs to be jiggled for it to actually latch shut when closing it. But overall the cage was a great deal for the price and it was delivered extremely fast.

Not actually a "no tools required" assembly - most parts misaligned., 1/17/2017

JT2001 from Portland, OR, USA

When this arrived I discovered the "no tools required" claim by the manufacturer really isn't. My first clue was the inclusion of a screwdriver in the box to assemble the bottom wheeled portion. My second clue was the suggestion to use a rubber mallet in the assembly of the cage. This took nearly two hours to put together due to misalignment of the screw holders in three of the four struts. The rest of the parts came together with my having to using a hammer and pliers to align the sections. I know others may have had better luck with theirs - I've purchased other cages of this size over the years and was disappointed by the overall poor quality of fit of the components.

Not happy with my order, 1/14/2017

Sara65 from

This cage took my husband hammering it for three hours to get it into the right spaces then once we finally got it together the top left door is messed up ( from poor welding once again) really wish we would of ordered from somewhere else. its already put together and would be a pain to take apart, that's the only reason I'm not returning it. to be honest I feel this cage was used and returned and we got it, which is wrong. I would recommend the cage just not this site.

Not a great product for the money spent, 12/10/2016

chlooren from

For as much as we paid for this cage, I would expect there too be far less problems with the welding and assembly. We've had to use a hammer to get 80% of the parts to fit into each other. Almost nothing would just slide in with ease. Incredibly frustrating while trying to make a new animal feel at home.

awesome, awesome, awesome!, 7/28/2016

Rhiannon from

This was the best upgrade we could have made for our 2 boys. I appreciate the double doors that allow for much easier cleaning. We have the double unit and we are able to separate them quickly and easily now, simply swing the ramp up and place the hook on the end to give them the alone time they need or when we need to monitor our little ones' food intake. If we were to get a 3rd we have discussed adding on an additional unit because of how much better this product has been vs. the other cage we had (the basic fold up one with the plastic shelves and flimsy everything we were sold at a local store) It's so awesome that the ferrets even put themselves in there when they are tired of running around. It has made a positive impact in their happiness. They no longer chew on the bars because they are vertical and spaced appropriately. If you are on the fence about it I would say get it. I waited a year before I upgraded to this and I wish I had done it a lot sooner.

Good Cage, poor packing, 7/9/2016

TexasFerretOwner from Austin, TX, USA

I didn't plan on writing a review, but after numerous email request to write one, here it is: The cage is good solid quality. It could be a bit tricky to align for some people, a rubber mallet (which I happened to have) sure did come in handy. The ramps are too steep for young and old ferrets... Even at the lowest height. The box was extremely damaged upon arrival (I took pictures) and packing of the cage inside the box offers no protection. Consiquently several bars of the cage are bent and the doors are crooked. (I'm not sure if the doors are crooked from design or shipping damage. I would have returned it for a replacement, but I had two baby ferret that needed a home the next day and could not wait. So, feel free to make it right in some way. Not sure how you will.

Easy to assemble and keep clean, 7/3/2016

Perhensam from Philadelphia

I really appreciate how easy it is to remove plastic trays, hose them down and slide them back in. My son and I put it together quickly and easily, and the wheels make it simple to move around when needed. The multi-levels are fun for the critters to scamper around on, and it's easy to hang toys on the top for them to play with. Just 2 minor gripes-. The cloth covers for the ramps don't stay on, so I just took them off. And one of the shelves kept falling down, so I removed it entirely. Other than that, it's darn near perfect.

Best ferret cage PERIOD., 6/23/2016

Tany from New Jersey

I've had the fortune of working with various ferret cages and if I were to build one, I'd only recreate the Ferret nation Habitat. This is a solid unit that easily fits the needs of my three ferrets. If you are hesitant in buying one, please let this push you in the right direction! With minimal effort the cage can be set up and you and your furries will enjoy their new space! To the credit of ferret.com the product came to NJ in a matter of 2 business days! They were very helpful in the purchasing of this product.

I'm not happy with the ferret nation cage I got. I'm never using this site again.

If your ferret is as stubborn as mine you will want to make this invesment. Some how my little one managed to break through and open two different types of cages. This cage is sturdy and well made. Dont waist your time paying for cheap imitations. The ferret nation is one of a kind with two doors that swing open with easy access that provides your ferret lots of room. They will absolutely love it. And lets not forget get the easy cleaning !

I had been debating buying a new cage for some time. I felt like $206 was a bit steep for a cage but decided it would pay for itself over time. I am so happy that I bought this cage! It arrived in excellent condition, and the shipping was SUPER FAST! I ordered the cage on Tuesday, and received it on Thursday. Overall, it was fairly easy to assemble but was much easier having an extra set of hands. I am completely satisfied with my purchase! Wish I would have bought sooner. My 2 ferrets seem happy as well.

Beautiful cage if manufactured properly, 5/4/2016

Sara from New York, NY, USA

This cage is a beautiful cage if it was manufactured properly. It took my boyfriend and I over three hours to build the cage because there were pieces that were bent and were made of pure metal. Because these pieces were defective and dented in it made it almost impossible to build the cage, we literally had to pry pieces open with tools. Even the holes to screw in the screws weren't made properly and my boyfriend had to open the holes with a hammer and that alone took over 30 minutes to do. However, after taking forever and getting incredibly frustrated we finally got the cage built and I must say it is very nice once we got through all the torture. I would recommend this cage to someone If the company would take more time to ensure the quality of the cages

Buy this cage!, 5/3/2016

Kelso from

This cage is amazing! I have three furbabies and there is more than enough room for them. The double doors make it so easy to clean and reach the ferrets if I need to. And the vertical bars have stopped our cage climbing issue :)

Greatest product i could have bought, 4/29/2016

falcetta64 from Romeoville, IL, USA

This Product was the best thing I could have purchased for Our Ferret. He has plenty of room to move around and stretch when we are not home also it is big enough for another ferret or two if we ever plan on getting him a little friend. I feel we got well worth what we paid in this product and I Would recommend this to any one who has or plans on buying a ferret. I also purchased food as well which he loves. I will definitely continue to buy from Ferret.com

Nice, but parts didn't fit great, 4/19/2016

Kryst from Allenton, WI 53002, USA

The cage had all peices needed, but when putting the cage together I had to use a hammer to get the sides in place. This caused some paint to chip off(not noticable). If I would not have ran into these issues, it would have taken about an hour to put together, but with these issues it took me 2 and a half.

Perfect cage! Patience is required, however!, 4/16/2016

HavenandBear from Minnesota, USA

This cage is the answer to my spoiled fur baby's needs. When it comes to quality, this cage cannot be beat... It is made from extremely sturdy metal (which weights quite a bit!) and wheels are attached to the bottom to allow for easy moving! This cage says "no tools required", however I had some issues with the build of the cage. Since you assemble the whole thing, its to be expected that some errors might arise. The spacing for a part of the cage was off, and required me and my roommate to get a wrench and hammer to whack it into place in order to assemble. This took 4 hours to do... Literally. This cage is excellent, but be prepared to examine closely if you cannot get it assembled like me. If all the pieces would have fit right off the bat, this would have been assembled in a jiffy-- an hour tops. Be prepared to break a sweat if your pieces don't align like mine! OVERALL.... buy this cage! Your fur baby deserves it! ?

Trish from

This cage is very sturdy and so much easier to clean than my old chinchilla cage. Also easy to find vendors that will custom make fleece linings for since this cage is the very common with chinchilla owners. Also easy to attach wooden shelves and toys too.

This cage is very safe and made according to the needs of ferrets, 4/15/2016

Critters from Bullhead, Sahuarita, AZ, USA

My daughter purchased our first ferret & bought a cage that she thought was adequate. It was not made of the same quality as this cage & our first ferret tried to get out & squeezed through the bars & got caught. We were gone overnight & don't know how long she hung dangling in that position but it cut off her circulation to her lower half. I massaged her legs (which were purple) & we had to wait a day to find a vet. We cried because we thought she was going to die. The only emergency vet we could find for a ferret on the weekend wanted to euthanize her. After we got her to our vet & they discovered after several trips that her kidneys were failing they put her on dialysis for about a week. She slowly started recovering. She is now fat & healthy. I immediately bought this new cage after what happened. In fact we have 3 ferrets now and I have two of the Ferret Nation double cages. I highly recommend them. DO NOT BUY THE OTHER CHEAPER CAGES. They can be dangerous.

Huge!, 4/7/2016

Haleyh from WI

My ferrets are going to love this thing - it is simply massive. I was able to put the cage together by myself with the help of a rubber mallet. It was not as difficult to put together as I expected. I'm a bit nervous at the thought of what will happen when I move - this cage seems like it would be really hard to take apart. Everything is super sturdy and I love the double doors! The box arrived looking like it was holding onto its last life. One plastic shelf insert was cracked. Thankfully Ferret.com is shipping a replacement piece. All in all, I would definitely buy this cage again.

Jamielynn91 from Hopedale, IL 61747, USA

This came so incredibly fast. I placed my order on the 8th and it was delivered on the 11th. This cage is huge! Definitely worth the money. It wasn't to difficult to put together I did it on my own in about an hour. I would recommend a rubber malt however because the sides need to be "encouraged" into place aside from that it's an amazing quality cage. I know some people are considered with it coming with damaged parts mine was in perfect condition. I highly recommend this cage. This is by far the cheapest site to order it from as well as the fastest with delivery l.

Ferret Nation models 182,183, 1/23/2016

WhiskeyGirly from California, USA

This is the best home you can provide for your ferrets. It offers multiple, adequately sized floors that allow for food, sleep areas, and litters boxes to be in separate places. This is necessary for ferrets to be healthy and happy. Remember that ferrets spend all of 21-22 hours per day in the house if you are caring for them properly. I have owned two of these houses and my only complaint is the doors don't close 100% properly because the house is not "square" even though it is on an even surface and was assembled according to the instructions provided.

Great product, 1/16/2016

Chin88 from

This item shipped fast. There were some holes in the box and one of the trays was cracked, but still functional. I am replacing all of the trays with bass trays anyway. The trays are plastic, which are bad for chinchillas. I had to send an extra $125 for metal trays. This cage was easy to put together. My chinchilla loves the extra space. It's huge. I thought about getting a third level but after seeing it in person it is so big that it's not needed for only 1 chinchilla. I love that the doors open wide. I don't have to worry about catching my chins leg in a tiny hole like his other cage. I also love how easy it is to clean. My old cage I had to take whole thing off and fight with the bottom pan. My only other concerned is if the ramp covers come off it could break my chins leg. The ramp covers are just Velcro so I feel like it could come off easily I wish this was better designed. Other than that I am happy I got it

Kara7 from Youngstown, OH, USA

I was skeptical ordering such a large cage for one ferret and being his first cage with us. He loves it. It was easier to put together than I thought. It does come with latches but I still haven't figured out where they go. Since he spends most of his time in there I'm glad it's so big.

An absolute must-have!, 10/8/2015

wswaringen from Winston-Salem, NC, USA

I've owned 7 ferrets over the last 6 years. the cages have come and gone -- some were better than others. I needed a more spacious and easier to clean cage and this one definitely did the trick. The build quality is impressive (practically no plastic at all). It's heavy and sturdy but is on wheels so it's easy enough to roll outside and wash off. The double doors on the front that open past 180 degrees make it super easy to remove the bottom trays and clean them -- it also gives you easy access to every corner of the cage (which makes cleanup a breeze). There's also a good bit of customization available straight out of the box (the shelves can be installed in 3 different positions, ramps can be moved, etc). The $200 price tag may seem steep but I've paid more for cages I liked a LOT less. This cage is everything a ferret owner could want.

Best cage, 9/4/2015

MayMay2000 from

It took awhile to get here to my house but it was worth it! It doesn't need any tools to build it cause it already comes with it. I had to use some of my tools that are bigger so it would be easier to handle and a hammer to put the peaces in place. It took me about 10-15 minutes to finish it. I love how it has lots of room! It was bigger than I expect it would be. My ferret bandit loves his new cage and i would highly recommend this product!

dcdancer from Colorado, USA

This cage was over all great but I am using it for a chinchilla. I had to replace the plastic and ramps although that is not a review for a ferret it is true. It took three people to put together as well as a hammer and a piece of wood to have all the pegs in the right holes. It also got banged up a lot in shipping that is not about the product but it was a big hassle.

Nice look, sturdy but not appropriate for ferrets., 6/29/2015

petlover from Watertown, NY

I like the looks of the cage. It was easy to put together. We have had it up for a couple of weeks but can't put the ferret in it because there are no sides on any of the shelves. We have been trying to find a tote the same size as the shelves so we can put a tote on the shelves but we haven't found one that size. We are now thinking of getting plexiglass to make our own sides. I can't imagine a company putting out a ferret cage with no sides!!

This is the best cage in my opinion, 6/25/2015

AlyGifford from Waukesha, WI, USA

I ordered the ferret nation double unit cage for my chinchilla and he loves it! It has lots of space to run around and put things in it and has nice storage underneath. However, the instructions that came with the cage on how to put it together were pathetic. Also it states "no tools needed" which is not true because you definitely need a hammer to pound the sides in. This cage is really expensive at pet stores and other sites but ferret.com sells it for the best price you will find. If you're going to put a chinchilla in this cage I would recommend not using the ramps because they are really difficult to put in and chinchillas jump anyways. Also you will need to buy fleece liners for the bottom of the cage to go over the plastic to give your chinchilla or ferret a soft place to lay. Plenty of places sell those and other fleece items. This is the best and safest cage for your chinchilla or critter in my opinion.

Patrick from Long Island

Cage was a bit of a challenge to construct, but took suggestions from other folks on here which was helpful. The bottom tray definitely could use a redesign to have the edges come up by the same height as the scatter guard (which you have to purchase separately).

JtheK from Bloomington, IN, USA

Not only am I a first time ferret owner, I am a first time pet owner. I was given a large "Kaytee" cage I when I adopted my 2 babies. I found that cage very difficult to clean. The Ferret Nation habitat is much easier to maintain. The large doors make it possible to reach all areas of the habitat were little "gifts" may have been left. I am very satisfied. It may be a bit more expensive than some others, but quality is always worth it.

turbohunterferrets from Boston, MA, USA

Buy this cage! It's very spacious for my two ferrets, they have plenty of room to move around, lots of sleeping spots and there is plenty of room for multiple food bowls and water bottles so they never run out. It was easy to put together by myself and the company makes a nice set of accessories that can be used to customize it. I especially like the cover, which helps my boys calm down and sleep even when our other pets are around and curious. Also, the size provides plenty of room for customization, which I know I really enjoy.

sbeav from Western, NY, USA

I'm very happy, and excited to be able to pet my girls thru the bars. I bought a used critter nation w my chinchilla's, altho it was still in great shape for being used (means these cages last many yrs!) I was alil upset I couldn't get my fingers in to pet them. Both cages serve different needs, critter nation w small bar spacing is great for babies but having adult chin's the ferret nation worked better for me :) the only con is, because the wider spacing, there's limited ledge placement options...but still works for me and I love it, the girls do too!

This cage is perfect! I have 4 ferrets and they have plenty of room to stretch out and exercise even when I'm not home. And unlike most large ferret cages, this one has platforms that span the whole length and make it impossible for them to fall from a great height. The only con is that it was a bit hard to assemble because the pieces didn't all line up correctly (took one of the other reviewer's suggestions and hammered them back into place.) But overall it's wonderful and my little buddies seem very happy.

Did require some "percussive persuasion" to get it assembled, but once it was, it has been awesome! No longer do I have a petite ferret that can wiggle her way through pliable bars to freely roam whenever the mood strikes her! And the ease of cleaning is light years better than their former cage! We'll worth the money for a little less labor and some peace of mind!

A must for ferret owners., 3/27/2015

Johanna from Ohio

Even if your ferret is free roamimg, I believe this cage is a must have for all ferret owners. The cage assembly is fairly easy. It does need to be forced with a mallet together in some spots. Big enough for multiple ferrets, toys, hides, hammocks and litter boxes. I do suggest getting the ladder to go from the floor to the cage bottom so you don't have to physically move your ferrets out of the cage. This shipped faster than expected as well. Ordered on a Tuesday night and arrived Friday morning. Thanks ferret.com!

There is really nothing bad I can say about this cage. While it is a tad more expensive than other cages on the market, you really do get what you pay for here. Assembly was a bit more difficult than expected but the instructions were clear and with some elbow grease my boyfriend and i were able to put it together without much issue. our furbabies have never been happier! they are loving their new home more than anything! you can tell their quality of life got loads better with just one simple change. You definitely aren't doing enough for your ferrets if you haven't invested in a cage like this one.

Mica from Boston MA

The picture lies. I'm 5'2" and this cage is well over my head. It is huge. I have 5 ferrets and they have plenty of space for all their toys and beds and still have space for two litter boxes and could probably fit another one if I needed to. I do recommend two people when putting it together as it is much larger than I thought. I love how I can wheel it into other rooms to let the ferrets play somewhere else while still having access to their cage. My only wish is that it came with extra of the plastic shelves for easier cleaning but they can be ordered.

Huge, heavy duty cage!, 2/27/2015

Buddy from Toledo, OH

I bought this cage on sale thank goodness! We have one ferret, and now we could house 4!!! That's how big this cage is. I love it.!!!! And so does buddy!!!! Only reason I gave it a 4 start rating and not a 5 is because you have to spend extra money and buy the 4 inch sides seperately, and they don't sell them for the small ledges, just the main floors. My ferret poops on the small ledges and then it falls out of the cage on the carpet!!! :( Not to hard to put together, I did it myself fairly easy.

haven't used it yet, 1/17/2015

tjstojo from South Carolina, USA

I will be using the ferret cage for a marmoset monkey instead of a ferret and I haven't gotten him yet so I can't comment on how it's going to work but it was highly recommended to me from another monkey mom so I'm hoping that is true. I will be happy to give another review after I'v started using it in a few months.

DragonsMonkey from Bradford, PA 16701, USA

The girls absolutely love this! It comes with 2 layers, 3 ramps, 4th as for easy clean up and plenty of space for our 2 girls to have fun in. Stability is amazing and has 2 front wheel locks so it doesn't travel anywhere unless you want it to.

Amazing, 1/4/2015

Ferrethoarder from Albuquerque, NM, USA

This cage is absolutely amazing. We wish we would have just bought this first off instead of trying other cages. We have 5 ferrets and the 2 levels is plenty big enough even though we might eventually add the third layer. They seem much happier in their new home.

Cadillac of cages, 12/26/2014

Fuzzylover from Indianapolis, IN

We have a shelter with 40+ ferrets and we use these cages exclusively. They are heavy duty, quality cages , spacious and easy to clean.We have used other cages previously and would never consider any of them now that we have the FN cages. One caveat would be the wheels--they do not hold up to the weight of the cages. We replace them with heavy duty wheels from hardware store. While they are expensive cages, they are well worth the money.

Easy to clean and easy to keep clean!, 12/20/2014

Terter from Danville, Il

I absolutely love this cage and my two carpet sharks do too. It's easy to clean, has tones of space, and the bars are completely covered. I cane from a all wire cage that my male fuzzbutt could bend and break the bars and it was sooooo cramped. Not to mention I had to take apart the whole cage to clean just the litter box. It was a nightmare! So this cage is excellent for me since I clean my fuzzys cage daily. Highly recommended to all ferret owners.

Excellent cage, even for a Chinchilla, 12/18/2014

lakeshorewish from

We bought this to give our Chinchilla extra room, and the cage is very well made and the Chinchilla loves the height. The doors are very secure which was one of the deciding factors as well. It appears to be very well made, and is pretty easy to assemble, even for just one person.

The best EVER!!!, 12/16/2014

Zcruzer from

I was a first time ferret owner and was struggling to find a good inexpensive cage. I found ferret.com and was extremely excited at the much cheaper price on this cage. I ordered it, it shipped in 24 hours and was delivered to me in 12 days. The cage came and at first I was worried because the box had holes and scratches in the box, but the cage was perfectly fine. We assembled it easily and quickly. I have had my ferrets for a month now and the cage ROCKS!!! It's easy to clean and a perfect size for multiple ferrets to run around and have fun in when they're not out. I love this cage and would recommend this cage to any ferret owner no matter what.

Great for Male Rats, 11/27/2014

Lizz from New Jersey

I have 2 adult male rats that absolutely love this cage. This is just about the largest home I could have bought for them, and it's worth every cent. There's so much you can do with this cage! It's incredibly user friendly. The door clasps are easy to use and can't be opened accidentally, the shelves have slots so that you can put the two smaller shelves on either side and as high or as low as you want them. The bar spacing is not suitable for small rats, but that's completely fine. The gaps allow you to place multiple hammocks and whatever else in the cage.

Very large; construction a little iffy, 10/25/2014

Junebug from

It's very large/tall, and I love that instead of being made entirely of half-levels, this cage has two full floors (as this is essentially two units) and a half level (well, it's about a third of the full length) in each unit. I also like that every floor has wire underneath that can be used for hanging things. The unit also came with ramp covers. The front opens completely up, which will make cleaning much easier. The cage wires are vertical as well, so I'm not worried about the ferrets scaling the side of the cage. If you use a water bottle, you may end up having to get a new one as the vertical wiring makes that harder to attach (ours barely fits). Downside: several pieces were difficult to fit together and some are still crooked. I suspect this may eventually take away from the durability. Overall, I love the cage. I feel much less guilty about leaving them in the cage when I'm gone, and the extra space will make decorating much more fun. I would recommend it to any ferret owner.

Took my husband and I 3 hours to put together. Some of the wholes were not free of debris, they needed poked through. Instructions not real clear either. Overall a fantastic cage. Very strong and very easy to clean. You will want to buy the exit ramp right away if you want them to come and go without you waiting there.

Love this cage, 10/9/2014

holymolyhogs from Oklahoma, USA

I got this cage after extensive research for my hedgehogs. I took the middle panel with the hole between the floors and put it on bottom where the storage was since I wanted 2 separate stacked cages. It would have been a lot easier putting it together if I had some help but I got it done. My hedgies absolutely love it. Very roomy, they have their wheels on the loft so they have plenty of floor space below. I love it as well, both doors opening make cleaning a breeze. Plan on buying another one as soon as I make room for it. This cage is a little pricier than others like it but it is larger and worth it. Ferret.com had the best price and trust me, I looked everywhere. ;)

I am the proud mother of two fur babies and couldn't be happier with the Ferret Nation cage I purchased for them. PLENTY of room for any of your ferrets favorite amenities. The French doors on the front of the cage are lovely for ease of cleaning-- and make retrieving your fuzzy from his/her favorite sleep spot easy peezy as well. I highly recommend this cage and all the wonderful accessories (ie. ramp and tray covers) for anyone that wants the very best for their pets!

Ferret Nation cage, model 182, 9/24/2014

Devious56 from Middleburg, Florida 32068

Nice cage, much larger than our first cage, with features that makes it easier to use, and much more convienent. Being able to open all the doors at once makes cleaning a breeze, and being able to block off the bottom from the top comes in handier than you can imagine. I thought it might be a bit pricey, but I must say, the features make it worth while. I have to mention that it was damaged in shipping, and the factory made good on it and I had the replacement part within a week. Can/t ask for much more than that.

This product is great, 9/24/2014

Zoeythebandit from Riverside, WA, USA

This cage is perfect for the fur-babies. I love it. Plenty of room to hide n' sleep and to play. There's one bad part when you have to put it together. None of the cage parts have a letter sticker on them so in the beginning when you follow instructions you will get confused on which part goes next.You do need a rubber mallet to interlock parts, you do need to remove the black tabs that they insert into the parts. The instructions will not tell you to remove the tabs, when you have to so you can interlock parts. Over all I rate the cage a 5.

gman from

Great cage for multiple ferrets (I have three). Have little worry of them falling far when inside as each level is completely enclosed with a small entrance to the upper level. Nice to have double doors on each level as ease of cleaning and taking them out. Just be careful when closing the doors and placing them immediately inside. They like to poke their heads out.

Got this for our son and his two ferrets. This cage is way better built than his last. Thicker metal on the frame and more solid all around. He appreciates the removable floor on the first level for easy cleaning. All in all good bang for the buck, just not cheap. But you get what you pay for!!

Decent product but design flaw?, 8/20/2014

Wednesday from Grand Rapids, MI, USA

Ferret Nations are supposed to be great cages but this one came with a design flaw. When you are trying to install the ramp to go between levels, the right hook doesn't fit right due to the metal piece attached to the back wall. You have to bend the hook out to fit and it says nothing about that in the assembly manual. Other than that, sturdy cage and will work fine.

My husband and I quickly put this cage together and found it to be of high quality and very strong. We have a 14 year old chinchilla and worried about moving her to a new cage, but, after the initial panic, she has become very happy with her new home. This cage is, by far, the best price for the excellent quality and stability.

Really Good Cage, 7/28/2014

Yano from Cincinnati, OH

It's so roomy and the doors open completely for easy cleaning. The metal frames on the two platforms are great, and have hooks to hang beds from. The ramp covers are friendly to little feet. The platforms are half the width of the cage, instead of the usual quarter. The plastic floors are great. Mine arrived in great condition. But I still had to use a hammer to get the sides lined up. If yours arrives with the box beat up, just refuse delivery and have another one sent. I was able to assemble mine alone, but a second person would have been nice. Of course, having two ferrets climbing on everything didn't help. Also, it arrived just two days after I ordered it.

Easier to assemble then I thought!, 6/2/2014

sheilaNpym from Phelan, CA, USA

I have to say, I was very worried to get this cage just because of all the reviews I had seen about how horrible the assembly process is. I am proud to say, that I put this cage together by myself with my 6 year old daughter as my "assistant" in under an hour with nothing else but a hammer and the small tool that is given to you in the package. Yes I did run into a few hiccups along the way, but there was nothing that needed to be altered. All of the pieces made perfect sense on where the needed to go. If anything I would say you may want to use a rubber mallet to help the side panels get into place, they seemed to be the only pieces that were a challenge, and you might want to use a full sized screw driver to make the job a little easier. Other then that I am 100% satisfied with this cage! It makes cleaning so easy with the big door and casters. And it feel very sturdy and durable. I love it!

Great cage..., 4/16/2014

Sheepdogmama from Suffolk, VA, USA

I had the smaller version of this for almost five years and LOVED it! I went from 2 ferrets to 3 and wanted more space so I bought this cage and am sure I will love it just as much. The fact that the entire front opens up to allow you access to handle your ferrets, hang their hammocks, and clean easily... Which we all know is important when owning ferrets! I am able to wipe out daily then very easily remove the trays for more thorough cleaning. I have jad ferrets off and on for more than 20 years and this is BY FAR the best cage I have owned ( this size or the single).

Pretty good, but there are some issues., 4/10/2014

Milkshakes00 from New York, NY

The cage is made out of good material, arrived quickly, and is priced well. But there are drawbacks. First thing first: The doors. One door isn't really welded properly, or the hinge isn't, but the left top door can actually be simply pushed open from the top. Fortunately, it still takes a bit of force to open so our ferrets can't really get the angle and the force to open it. The other problem was during assembly I noticed quite a number of other welds weren't that great; I had to really force the cage together, because certain things were slightly out of whack. I had to actually fix the top left square portion that the sides slide into, as it wasn't even lined up correctly. I also had issues getting the ramp hooks into the proper place inbetween the top and bottom sections of the cage. I had to actually pry the wired mesh forwards to be able to fit it. But, with all that said, it adds a lot of room for our ferrets over the previous cage, and it's just all around more nice.

This was on sale when we bought it and when I did a post-purchase price check I was shocked how much we saved using Ferret.com. This cage is big. I am 5'7" and it is nearly as tall as me. We just have one petite ferret but this cage is huge and could easily accommodate multiple ferts easily! So far it has been easy to clean and use. Hoping it moves a reassembles well as we anticipate a move fairly soon.

my ferret loves this cage, it has lots of room for her to play. Its all metal so i know she wont be chewing on this cage. the locking doors are great I think this will be the cage that she won't be able to get her way out of. Was slightly hard to put together since some of the metal pieces were bent. the shelves were also bent and didn't sit in as they should have but in time they will break in. the instructions were also vague and kind of hard to follow at some spots and the pieces should have been labeled. Other then that this is a great cage.

Great Cage!!, 3/21/2014

Jaxson from New Hampshire, USA

This is a great cage and a great price! And super fast shipping!! I ordered this cage Wednesday morning and it was at my door the next day! (and I only paid the $4.99 ground shipping) The box it comes in is big but not huge but really heavy! It weighs 107 lbs so you might need some assistance getting it in to your home. The cage is heavy duty and very durable.I was able to set this cage up by myself in about 30 minutes.You will need a rubber mallet to put this cage together as the metal pegs that hold the cage together are a tight fit. When I ordered this cage I thought that the hammock and sleeper cube in the picture were included but they are not, however the ramp covers are. The only downside to this cage is the way it is packaged, 2 out of 4 of the plastic shelves were cracked upon arrival but I called customer service and they are sending out replacement shelves at no extra charge. Overall I am very pleased with this product!

Very good quality, 3/18/2014

Serena from Rhode Island, USA

I got this cage for my two ferrets which of whom are very active little critters and the cage they were in before was not suiting them to well so after a lot of reading into this cage I decided to go for it and I'm glad I did.The cage got here very quiclkly which was awesome,because I was anxious to get it,assembling it was very simple,directions were easy to follow,no tools required which was awesome!it is very spacious for my girls and plenty of room for their toys! On the other hand you certainly do need a rubber mallet to assemble this cage the cage unfortunately came with some bent pieces so we hammered them into place,other than that we had no other issues with this cage! My girls are happy=happy ferret mamma:)

This cage means business!, 3/5/2014

TimL from Charlotte, NC, USA

Fantastic build quality. The cage is extremely strong and heavy; your postman will hate you when he has to bring this thing to your door! Box was almost completely destroyed by the time it got to me, but the cage is so tough it didn't even matter. I had some issues with a couple of things not lining up right during assembly which called for some persuasion with a rubber mallet...other than that was super easy to put together. Nothing will be getting out or in without my permission. I was reluctant to spend so much at first but after seeing the cage I feel like it's a steal for the price listed here!

SUPER PLEASED WITH THIS CAGE, 2/28/2014

BARBIE from Corpus Christi, TX, USA

LOTS OF ROOM IN THIS CAGE! LOTS OF LIVING AREA! BIG CAGE FOR THE COST! WELL-BUILD AND STURDY. EASY-TO-REMOVE SHELVING FOR EASY CLEANING. BIG DOORS FOR EASY ACCESS AND EASY CLEANING. SMOOTH ROLLING CASTERS. ALSO GOT THE SHELF COVERS -- WARMER AND SOFTER FOR MY FERRET. QUICK SHIPMENT. QUITE TALL. CAN'T IMAGING ADDING A 3RD STORY UNLESS YOU HAVE MORE THAN 3 FERRETS. I DOUBLED THE RAMP COVERS FOR EXTRA COMFORT. ONE NOTE: THE LAST CAGE I GOT A FEW YEARS BACK WAS LARGE AND HEAVY TOO. THE UPS DRIVER DROPPED IT AND IT BROKE, SO I HAD TO RETURN TO SELLER FOR REPLACEMENT. BIG HASSLE GETTING SUCH A HEAVY PACKAGE TO THE UPS STORE (THEY WOULDN'T PICK IT UP). THIS TIME, THE FED EX DRIVER DIDN'T FEEL LIKE USING A DOLLY BECAUSE IT WAS "TOO MUCH TROUBLE." HE DROPPED THE BOX ALSO AND BENT ONE OF THE CAGE PANELS. LUCKILY WE WERE ABLE TO STRAIGHTEN IT, SO WE DIDN'T HAVE TO RETURN IT. IN OTHER WORDS, DELIVERY PEOPLE HATE THIS ITEM CAUSE IT IS SO HEAVY. MIGHT BE BETTER TO SHIP BY FREIGHT.

Great for multiple ferrets, 2/26/2014

FerretFrenzy from Bristol, RI, USA

This cage has plenty of room, we have four ferrets and they can all play and sleep without hassle. Full size doors make cleaning super easy and the material seems really sturdy. This cage was a little difficult to put together at 1 step but overall wasn't too bad. I have had several cages over the years and this one seems the best and the price was okay too. We bought the covers for the levels for extra comfort and our babies love it.

My Fuzzies love it, 2/26/2014

Aceslady51975 from Peoria IL

I purchased this to replace an older model and to add another level(183). This is sooo spacious and easy to clean and gives my fuzzies plenty of space to play and even to get away from each other during a fuzzy feud. Relatively easy to put together, but it definitely needs 2 people to assemble. The plastic pan came cracked but was quickly replaced by ferret.com.

Love this cage!, 2/25/2014

GandS from Bellevue, WA, USA

We got this cage, because one of our ferrets kept getting out of our other cage. This cage is great, and she can no longer get out. The cage is really easy to clean. Only bad thing (besides it being pricey), it's so difficult to put together. Not all the parts fit correctly. All and all a great cage.

I love it, 2/21/2014

Bosslady24d from New Port Richey, FL, USA

I am very pleased with this cage. I bought it along with the add on cage to make sure my babes have plenty of room and they do. I was allowing them free run of one of my rooms because I hated the cage they had. To me it just wasn't big enough even with the 3 levels. Long story short, they got into a lot of trouble and refused any kind of litter training which was very difficult to keep up with. I decided to order this cage as much as I hated the thought but I am super happy with it. With the addition it is just below ceiling height and they have so much space and it has to be one of the easiest cages to keep clean. This is one of my best purchases .

smilesalot59 from

Had a bit of trouble putting together the first floor. The pegs wouldn't snap in place as easily as I had hoped. I had to use my screwdriver to make the holes larger and took a while to get it together. It was more time consuming than I thought , but its beautiful and so easy to clean. the doors open wide. My teenagers like the ease of cleaning

Extremely happy!, 2/3/2014

JenD from Wilmington, DE, USA

I have 3 fuzzies that live in the ferret nation cage! It's absolutely awesome. Plenty of space for them to run and play. Which makes me happy if one day I'm not able to let them out due to work. The price was much cheaper than anywhere else. We also purchased the add on unit. It's very easy to clean and easy to block off sections while cleaning due to the hooks to hold the ladders up. Bear , Bandit and Bo have the life on thier playboy mansion! It has storage underneath for food, litter, toys etc. the directions to put it together did miss a step but it's not rocket science putting it together. When it was delivered (super fast I might add) 2 trays were cracked I'm guessing by ups by the looks of the box. I called customer service and without any problems 2 more were sent to me with-in 24 hrs. Best customer service I've dealt with anywhere by far! Hope this helps someone!

Best cage evarrr, 1/23/2014

Nicolou from

We bought this cage to upgrade the ferrets from a small 4 foot cage. We have 2 and they take up space as they grow. This cage is perfect for space, looks nicer, and is made of much better materials. Since the bars are vertical, the ferrets can bite and chew the bars to make noise at night. The only thing we needed to modify was our litter box so it would stay in place for overnight stays. OVERALL, I LOVE this cage. Worth the money, easy to build, and not tacky.

HBrimm from Morgantown, WV, USA

Very spacious, Super easy to clean. I currently have 3 ferrets and there is more then plenty of room for all of them in there. They love to use the whole cage as their play area whenever they are in it. Love that the trays slide our and are easy to wipe down. I line them with fleece and it works great. Have to make sure you push the gate to make sure the top and bottom latches completely. I have left it several times with only one part of a door latched. However this has never been a problem, they were never able to open the door. Only trouble I had was with assembly. Some of the metal pieces were bent and would not line up completely so I had to use a hammer to lightly tap them into place which in return chipped off pieces of the coating. It was difficult as I was doing it all by myself. Overall tho without those setbacks it was quick and easy to do! In conclusion I am very pleased with this cage and would recommend it to EVERYONE who has ferrets that they love. :)

Perfect price, quality, and durability., 1/8/2014

GAGEnLYNZ from Pa

I love the size and setup of the cage. It's extremely hardy against things like toddlers I have 3 ferrets and they love it. The only con is that the holes where you put it together are extremely tight on mine. I had to chip the finish off it for it to fit and use vice grips to force it into the holes to align in perfectly.

Tools actually ARE necessary, but still a good product., 12/20/2013

Deannie from

I ordered this cage for an adoption event for kittens. The first cage I got was pretty damaged, and the pegs did not fit well in the holes. Customer service got right on sending me a new one before the adoption event, and it arrived un-damaged. However, I still had issues with the side panel pegs fitting in the holes and had to use a hammer on the top of the panel to make them fit. Overall I am pleased with the cage (so are the kittens!) and the customer service was great!

StephCity from Rhode Island, USA

This item is a great cage for the price (especially if its on sale!). However the items boxed showed up on our doorstep in shambles, barely being held together by a staple and the welding on the a lot of the joints needed to be bent back to shape or removed. I sure know my bf wasn't happy putting this together! But all in all, once finally set up its a great cage for my two fur babes! So just be prepared if you are going to be purchasing this to make sure to have a few tools (hammer, screw driver, etc) ready to doctor up the poor welding!

Best possible choice!, 12/1/2013

CuddleBuddy from

I got my first ferret in September and I'm beyond in love with him, and he's beyond in love with his home! The french doors make it so easy to clean. Sure, it has its quirks. The hard plastic floors are a little hard to clean if you decide not to put down bedding, which I don't since I clean the cage thoroughly on a daily basis and I also don't want him just kicking it out and it getting all over my carpet. The cage is the perfect size for all of the bowls, litter boxes, hammocks, etc., and is still comfortably spacious for him to roam around in. This cage is perfect for him AND me - and for his future furry friend!

great cage but quality was lacking with this one, 11/30/2013

Becka from Cortland, NY 13045, USA

This is my second ferret nation cage, I bought it because of the large doors. It's very easy to access the ferrets and for cleaning. However, there were a lot of scratches in the enamel and chips exposing the bare metal underneath. I am worried it will now rust prematurely. I am replacing my other cage after 6 years because it started to rust in spots and the new design of the half shelves. The cage would not go together easily (i had to use a saw to cut off a chunk of metal to make it fit!)because the parts were made kind of cheap for the price. It seems like they didn't do a quality review ... I am upset with the quality but overall will be happy with the cage.

Alanda from Wellington, KY, USA

I received my cage on time and it was not damaged! I am a female 37 years old and it took me about 45 minutes to put together. It was easy because the instructions were great. I bought this for my 15 year old son because he wanted a ferret for xmas this year. Well we bought 2...they love their cage and it accommodates their every need. It is a very sturdy and attractive home for our new family of ferrets. I recommend this cage to anyone thinking of getting ferrets. I have a large corner litter pan and a hanging tent/hammock in the bottom floor, cozy cube hanging in the top level, along with their food and water and there is still plenty of room .I love this cage!!

Your Ferret will LOVE this..., 11/6/2013

ldjbritgirl from Boca Raton, FL, USA

Our ferret is comfortable and loves her cage. We have a large dog and two cats and the cage keeps the ferret safe, while she still can have her own space with the multiple floors. The assemply instructions were not as easy as other instructions I have used in the past on similar items.. The ramp from the top level to the bottom level was a little difficult to secure. Regardless, that was a minor issue. Easy to clean, extremely open, so easy to view your ferret(s) at any time; flexibilty to add hanging beds, playtoys etc. Thank you - I believe you and your ferret(s) will throughly enjoy this prodcuct.

Very nice cage for chinchillas, 10/21/2013

LaurenChinthrilla from Indiana, PA, USA

I had to purchase a new cage for my chinchillas because one of them chewed a humongous hole in the bottom of his old cage and was constantly escaping (I'm not even sure how he got the hole started). My chinchillas don't get along, so they had separate cages before, which took up a lot of room in my studio apartment. Now, I have them both in the ferret nation cage (I put the second level litter pan the opposite way so that the opening wouldn't overlap the opening in the metal grate underneath). Although this cage would be IDEAL for two chinchillas to live in together, my situation requires that they live in separate levels of the cage. The space in the cage is great, with removable platforms and litter pans. The only thing that bothered me a bit was that when I received the cage, some of the pieces were warped in ways that I wasn't able to fix without taking them to the hardware store. Once fixed, everything went together perfectly. No further complaints here!!

AWESOME!, 10/21/2013

Tneyy from

Just to start out with this is an Awesome cage. It is super spacious and has plenty space for multiple fuzzy friends. What is super awesome is that if you are adding a new friend to the family you can block off half of the cage for each of them to get use to each other and it worked really well for me. I will say that it literally look 2 hours at least to assemble and required four people. We had to use a hammer to re aline some of the pieces so they would fit together, and some wholes weren't the right size. Other than that if you are good at reading directions you can get through it. After that though it was very easy to take apart and reassemble if necessary. The price is kinda up there but if you really love your little ferret babies like I do it's completely worth it.

Great cage would not have anything else, 10/13/2013

Awest0425 from Washington, USA

Best ferret cage on the market. Very nicely made, easy to clean. The only bad thing that I can say is not about the cage but about the way the cage is shipped. It is a heavy cage and a big box, it is shipped in the box that it would be in on the shelf at the store and the box does not hold up to the shipping at all. My cage came with huge rips and holes in the box, cracked pans, deep scratches and rubs on the cages finish/paint. Called and Ferret.com sent me out a 2nd one ASAP, but is was shipped the same way and arrived pretty much in the same condition. But I was able to make 1 complete cage that was not all beat up out of the 2.

Ferretlover001 from Bluffton, SC, USA

This is a very sturdy cage and has large doors on the front for easy cleaning. It is roomy for the ferrets and has large shelves for blankets. For our older ferret, we can put her bed with her food and water close. The ramps look a little steep but our 8 year old femaie ferret, Ginger, has no problem walking in and out of the cage. The younger ones really love it, too, because there is a lot of room for hammocks, blankets, and litter pans.

Best Price online, also have the add-on for the top!, 10/11/2013

KyleD from Denver, CO, USA

Recently during my move to a house my extra tall ferret cage fell out the back of my truck onto the freeway and broke apart. So I had the cage strapped together with zip ties for the last 6 months and felt it was time to finally upgrade to a new cage. I strayed from this cage last year when I got my ferrets because the price was around $250, now it has been dropped to $157 and I felt I could not pass it up! I like that the doors swing wide open for easy access to clean things and remove the trays. The removeable trays is the best part about this, making cleaning much easier on the owner. The doors are a nice material and are textures and comes together in a very solid state and is very sturdy. I also bought the add-on piece to make this cage well over 7 feet tall! I actually could not fit it through the doorway into my ferret room (with the top part on) so I had to assemble it all in the room itself. If you want to have the largest ferret cage around then get this thing!

Built with ferret owners in mind!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!, 10/6/2013

nkhyatt from South Carolina, USA

Time and time again, I heard great things about this cage. My 10-year-old daughter and I constructed this cage in about an hour even with some frustrating reconstruction here and there, but what started as a doubt about the construction materials quickly dissipated as we added each layer and the cage became a sturdy piece of furniture. We have had this cage now for about one month. I love that the cage is not an eyesore like the purple and green wire cage we had before. Our escape artist cannot access the locking pins in this new cage which is great and I love the storage shelf for food, cleaning supplies etc underneath the cage. The removable trays are so easy to clean. Before, it took me over an hour between wiping all the grooves on my hands and knees in the old cage and sweeping all the litter flung everywhere. Now, it takes me about 15 minutes every night to simply wipe down the trays and sweep. Plus, it saves my back with its elevated design. LOVE IT!!!

We purchased this after seeing these cages used at the SPCA for kittens. We foster for them, and have found this cage to be perfect for older kittens. The levels allow us to keep litter boxes away from food and water bowls, which is so much nicer than wire dog crates we were using before. We will be ordering more of these! Thank you for the very fast shipping. We are pleased!

Better than the description, 9/24/2013

Kepp from California

This cage is better than the description, first off the ramp coming from the second story to the bottom story which is great when you need clean the cage because you can block your animals up in the top story and not worry about them getting out while your cleaning the cage out. Also it does come with plastic shelfs which is important because they are much much easier on ferrets feet than the wire cages. One Con to the cage isn't actually the cage but the directions. They are horrible, they don't appear to be written by someone who even speaks English, they skip at least two steps that are important and leave out a few important things. When assembling the sides of the cage two panels have small hooks in the middle of the top bar, these panels need to be on the top story as the hooks are used to hold the roof panel down tight. The directions completely leave this out. With the exception of the directions this is a great cage and I'm super happy with it.

Ferret Nation not only makes the Ferret Happier, It makes the Owner Happy T, 9/20/2013

HeavyDawg1 from Burlington, Ontario, Canada

This cage is Awesome. My only ferret basks in delight, and lives in Hotel Full Time, and comes out to play when she wants to play, and stretch her legs, and do a bit of monkeying around. She is a character that knows she is loved and adored. Cage open most of the day, and she loves her hotel, and the apt. She is a happier character, and called Justice that gets happy joyful play, so all Justice too Justice. I love the cage, it was simple to put together, easy, and a rubber hammer may be needed, but all in all this cage rocks.

I've wanted this cage for years and I finally found this amazing deal on ferret.com. Thanks! I do not regret buying this cage, but it did have some cons I wasn't expecting. The cage pieces were warped slightly and I couldn't easilly get them together. I ended up having to use a rubber mallet to bang some of them together. BUT, after getting it all up it works great. It's a little wobbly, but not enough to cause concern.

Made with ferrets in mind, 9/4/2013

Suzanne from South Carolina

I am very satisfied with the Ferret Nation. The instructions were fairly easy to read. I would recommend 2 people putting it together. Some of the pieces were bent, so they to be hammered straight. I only have one ferret and he LOVES all the room to play. There's lots of space to hang his hammocks and tent. Overall I am happy to have found this cage and the price is fabulous!!!!

Great product..great price!, 9/4/2013

Alyssa from Wi

I am overall SO happy with this purchase. It is such a great ferret cage and my ferrets absolutely love it! My boyfriend put it together and it was generally pretty easy to put together however the top piece wasn't welded together completely straight so he had a pretty hard time getting that piece on (but he eventually did..) We also purchased the add on unit for this cage and this thin is huge! This cage with the add on unit is close to 7 feet tall and just barely misses my ceiling. I think that's great though because I know my ferrets have plenty of room. We got a really great deal on this cage. For the cage AND the add on unit plus shipping and tax we got everything for about $230! Which is by far the cheapest I have found it anywhere online. I'm also really impressed with the shipping we ended up receiving both products before the estimated number of business days so I'm very satisfied with my purchase!

They love it., 9/4/2013

MattW from Hutchinson, KS, USA

This cage is spacious. This cage is so much larger than the last unit we had for our two ferrets. It is durable. The double doors that allow you to open the whole front of each section make so easy to get them out for play and especially to clean. The one thing I would advise against is how easy they make it sound for it to be assembled. It does take screws (screw driver included.) Also the instructions aren't real clear in a spot. I had to go back three steps because it didn't warn you about pieces that have one tiny little difference. Of course once it is together it is wonderful.

The best cage for ferrets, 8/29/2013

veabr from Andrews, TX, USA

We've had this cage about 3 weeks now for our 3 ferrets. We previously had a small critter cage from Petsmart. This cage is obviously designed with ferrets in mind. All the features combine to make the perfect ferret cage. The dual opening front doors make cleaning a breeze, and the lips on the various levels keep things contained. The ramps aren't too step, which had previously been an issue with our last cage, and the covers help the ferrets navigate the levels with ease. The construction is solid and was easily put together by one person. No real complaints except the bottom storage just isn't that large. I was expecting more, but it's decent enough to store a few things there.

Solid cage, easy to assemble!, 8/29/2013

GRBMom from Freeland, MD 21053, USA

Our daughter bought this for her four ferrets, upgrading from a smaller Prevue Hedryx cage and I just put it together today. So far we are really happy with it - it's very solid and sturdy and we love how both doors open on each level. The platforms are really large and the ramps are curved and come covered with fabric. (Don't know how long that will last with her critters, but we'll see.) Assembly was very easy - there are only bolts for the base, and then the rest is designed to slip into notches, which are then made secure by the next piece that goes in. We're not used to having the removable trays on each level (we had cut out carpet and zip-tied it to the wire rungs on the floors) - so I'm not sure if the ferrets will find a way to get under the tray or not! They'll try, I'm sure. Hopefully the litter box will be heavy enough and bulky enough to deter them. Really happy with this cage so far.....glad we upgraded and wish we had bought this in the first place!

Best cage for Ferrets,but not quite what I expected., 8/27/2013

Todd from CT

I like the size and materials this cage incorporates. Putting it together is fairly easy. I'm not happy with the workmanship, though. Jagged edges, misaligned pegs and holes make the doors hang crooked and make putting it together require a hammer. Overall, this IS the best cage on the market for Ferrets.

GREAT CAGE <3, 8/27/2013

Chintastic from Canada

I bought this cage for my spoiled chinchilla and he loves it. The height of this cage is great for jumping around which helps with keeping him active. This cage was only hard to put together because the pieces didn't snap together so I had to use a rubber mallet but that's okay. Also the instructions were so straight forward and really helped for me to put this together. Overall the cage is great and the price was great. I would totally recommend this cage.

Easy access to everything... cleaning is a cinch, tons of room to play., 8/24/2013

ARIESandATHENA from

We originally purchased the biggest cage available that Petco had when we bought our 2 furry friends. Within a week we knew we needed a better cage so we bought this one. What a difference. The solid flooring is easier on their feet and makes clean up so much easier -- our kids sleep in the litter box and poo in the corners. There's lots of room for hammocks and to run around play. It is very durable and sturdy. It does not feel cheap or look cheap.We love the storage area on the bottom -- that's where we hide all their toys for playing outside of the cage. I love that you can close off one of the levels -- making it easier to do a quick clean without them in the way. The doors fully open up -- no more trying to get them in and out through small doorways. Oh yeah -- crazy fast shipping. Bought it online on Sunday night. It was in our home and set up on Tuesday.

Love it!, 8/23/2013

aloya from Houston, TX

Ok this cage was a nightmare to put together, mostly because some pieces were bent from Fedex. The directions were too wordy and complicated. Some of the pieces arrived scratched up too. Aside from that, I love this cage! My ferret loves it, too! It's very roomy and I really like how the doors open by squeezing the two knobs together. Diezel had figured out how to open his old cage and there's no way he will figure this one out!

High price- but high quality, 8/20/2013

Cate from Ocean City, MD, USA

Our ferrets love this cage! There are areas where they can get their own space, or chase each other up and down 4 "stories". Since we set it up, they haven't had any issues with having too much energy. In the smaller cage they'd get bored and try to break out. This cage keeps them so busy, they sleep half the day now. Love the wheels, helps make cleaning up around it easier. And the doors are a great feature! Overall a great purchase. The only thing that I didn't like was this website kept changing the prices of the cage. I bought it for $215 and within 3 days it dropped to $197, $175, $157... Then back up to $197. Was disappointed, but that's this website not the cage.

My Ferret's Perfect "Forever Home", 8/14/2013

Breanna from East Lansing, Michigan

You will NOT find a cage better than this The only thing that wasn't perfect about this cage was that you do actually have to use some tools for the assembly (it's supposedly a "no tools required" cage). It's good to use a screw driver to tighten screws just for max stability, & it took my dad & a friend to set it up. It does take a little muscle. But, in all seriousness, this is the best cage you can get for your ferret. It has plenty of room for multiple ferrets, & if you have one (like myself), they have a field day with all the room. His cage is like his heaven...a perfectly sized area for his "bathroom,", a level for his feeding/drinking area, a whole level for quick naps in his nap sack, an entire level filled with toys just for playing, & another level for all-out "dead sleeps." Not to mention tons of places to hang hammocks, hideouts, toys, etc. Under each level & shelf, there are little half circles specifically for hooking things like hammocks. This cage will last forever.

My babies love it and so do I!!!, 8/7/2013

Shell from Langley, SC, USA

I absolutely love this cage and the service at Ferret.com!!! It arrived faster than I expected and was very easy to assemble. When the cage arrived some of the plastic shelves were cracked. Customer Service took care of this the same day by sending replacement parts. I am a small woman and assembled this all on my own. The only extra thing you may need is a small hammer or rubber mallet to "help" get some of the pieces in place. I love the product and the great service!!

BEST ferret cage out there!, 8/6/2013

pennygrammar from New Hampshire, USA

I had the previous 142 model for over 8 years (got it used, too) until recently replacing it with this once the screws started rusting. These are spacious, high quality cages. I've never had any issues and will repurchase again if needed. This model has no screws so it will likely not be anytime soon. We have always assembled it without the bottom shelf so that the cage door can be left open and they can come as they please without a far jump to the floor.

Piece of Junk!, 7/26/2013

Derkaderka from

I have owned the Ferret Nation 142 since the summer of 2010. It held up really well the first two years but this past year it has been falling apart at a rapid pace. Two of the shelves have developed huge cracks that are now being held together by duct tape. However, this is just a minor annoyance compared to the next issue. The welds (if you can call them that) that hold the very bottom of the cage together have come completely undone. Now I only have two struts on the bottom of the cage keeping the wheels from going awry. Once again, duct tape has been called in to save the day. I would hope that these issues have been addressed with the newer versions. After all of the rave reviews that I read for the original I have to say that I have been very disappointed with my purchase and am very hesitant to drop another $200 on a cage that didn't even last three years.

WORTH EVERY CENT!!, 7/16/2013

Shopgirl0301 from Wichita, KS, USA

We just got our first ferret - a 6 month old female, and she loves this cage. It's amazing quality, functionality & looks great with our decor. I put it together myself with no problems in about 30 minutes. It says no tools required, but I read up on the cage prior to purchasing and everyone suggested a rubber mallet for the sides - - - I AGREE. We are going to get a 2nd ferret in the near future and this case will be perfect for both of them. :)

Superior Design; Inferior Fit & Finish, 7/11/2013

FosterParentForCats from Inland Empire, CA

Best design I could find. Sad to say that assembling the pieces to make the #182 habitat was long and frustrating. Paint was poorly applied or rubbed off in many places.. Parts didn't fit together - poorly engineered - had to use hammers and other tools to finesse parts together. Finished product will work but top level is lopsided due to bad fit. Perhaps the previous model #142 that had to be put together with screws would have more precise engineering. Too bad that such a wonderful design had to be cheapened.

Excellent Cage!, 7/8/2013

DMegaera from

I absolutely love this cage! But I can't go without admitting two small pieces were broken off when I received it: one small chip from from the second story floor piece and some other small metal part. Nothing that can't be fixed with super glue, though. And I don't really wanna bother complaining and returning it for such small pieces, as it doesn't effect it's stability or general appearance. So, in all, it's an awesome cage, and worth the money! Just beware that a piece or two might be broken during shipping, though I'm sure you should be able to exchange or return it.

Excellent cage for ferrets., 7/7/2013

Chris from Perrysville, OH

This cage is such a change from the 1st cage purchased. Such great access with doors the width of the cage to keep it clean and much stronger and more durable. For only $20 more than the 1st, this cage provides almost twice the space for more play room, sturdier shelves, stronger ramps with soft fleece covers, and less height of the shelves for safety from falls. My furry friends seem to be very comfortable with their new habitat. Luckily, the pet store allowed me to return the other cage after a good scrubbing, for which it had to be disassembled. Only drawback, wish the shelves had higher sides. I just don't use shredded bedding. The ferrets do great with beds made of towels & fleece blankets which are easy to launder, and they love their fleece cozy cube.

Perfect cage, 6/28/2013

sbackx from

I love the fact that you can play with your little hobs/jills in this cage while they are still in the cage. Also if you have to do maintenance you can put them in the top and then work on the bottom (it buys you at least a few seconds!) Amazing cage and worth every dollar. The fact that sometimes I open it up and they just look at me like "do I have to come out and play??" tells me that they truly feel happy and at home :)

Huge, But a great cage, 6/28/2013

TMLewis from Gainesville, GA, USA

We have an escape artist ferret who actually learned how to break the welds on her other cage. She has no such luck with this one. The construction is very good and it is a well designed cage. I will say it was larger than I had expected but getting more for your money is not a bad thing. This cage was also $100 less than the price on it at the local pet superstore, so you seem to get a great deal from ferret.com. I would defiantly recommend this cage to any ferret owner.

Great for use in cat rescues!, 6/28/2013

JanetK from Lansing, MI, USA

I purchased these cages for the no-kill cat rescue at which I volunteer. We use them for integrating cats in the colony once they clear their initial medical quarantine. The cages allow the cats to adjust to the sights, sounds and smells of the other cats, whilst avoiding spats between cats who do not know each other. The kitties especially like to lie on the upper shelves, which are much larger than those in other ferret cages we've used, and allow the cats to spread out and relax. It is easy to reach all the corners of the cages to keep them clean. We also place pads on the storage shelves underneath the cages, and often find cats hanging out there. The cages are also ideal for the adoption events we hold: they show the cats well, are easy to open, and close securely. All-in-all, a great product for our rescue!

I have 2 double ferret nation cages as well as a single critter nation cage. I've had other cages in the past but these cages are the best. They are so easy to clean because of the wide doors and everything can be taken out to be cleaned. My ferrets and my rats love the huge space and I love the easy cleaning.

Great cage, bit hard to put together then advertised, 6/21/2013

AaronFromPA from PA

Ill start by saying that I, and my ferrets love this cage, there is a lot of room, it is very sturdy, and I feel good about having them in it during my work hours. I do highly recommend this product for the price. I don’t think it can be beat. That said it was a little tougher going together then they lead you to believe. The no tools assembly SHOULD work in theory but I think my product got slightly and I mean ever so slightly, bent during delivery and things were a smidge off. I had to use a hammer to get a few of the sides in place. This was a tad annoying and very loud. It also took me a couple hours to assemble because using a hammer was a last resort. Again I want to reiterate that I feel this was mainly due to the delivery guy but can’t be certain. Once together though it is a great cage. The doors are very secure, and everything is heavy duty. Also I assembled it solo...try to get help it is fairly large. Your mileage may very but this is a good product.

So far, so good, 6/16/2013

Elliott from Iowa

This cage is the best thing we've ever gotten for our ferret, Feivel. He's not good at using the litter boxes, and cleaning up his baby cage was difficult and time-consuming. The double doors of this cage are perfect for cleaning up accidents, and we are finally able to stay on top of cage cleanliness, even though we are in the process of moving! I will say that putting it together was somewhat annoying; not all of the holes lined up well, so we did have to use a hammer to set the sides in place. There is absolutely no way we will be able to take this cage apart because of this. However, it really isn't necessary because it is super easy to clean, to reach everything in the cage, and to move (it's on casters that work well.) Feivel loves the space and the soft hammock, and threw a tantrum when we tried to temporarily put him back in his old cage! All in all, it's the best thing we've found for him, and now he just needs a buddy to share it with.

Great Unit for Multiple Ferrets, 6/11/2013

southunder from Puyallup, WA

We recently purchased this cage after adopting a 3rd ferret, who is substantially smaller than our other two ferrets. This way we can keep them separate from the tiny little girl and not risk squishing her. Once the habitat is built, it's solid and very affective in doing what we need it to do. Downside is that putting it together was not easy, contrary to the box that states that no tools are necessary. The begs that the sides go into, weren't straight and took some manipulating on our part, and utilizing a rubber mallet to get them into the proper place. We also purchased the trays to catch the bedding, and in a perfect world the lip of those would be about another inch higher, as there is far more bedding that falls out of both habitats on the Ferret Nation one than the Super Pet Habitats. Aside from those two minor "issues" the cage is fantastic and does exactly what we need it to do!

This is my 2nd cage as my 1st one is getting used and abused. I've had the first cage about 12 years and it is still suitable for all 3 of my prairie dogs. I decided to go ahead and buy another cage so that I could simply replace the old one. Of course my PD babies don't care one way or another. This is just a gift for myself. I would recommend this cage to anyone with a small pet. My PD babies even chew on everything and it has withstood their teeth. Everyone needs this cage. Enjoy :)

Daughter brougt a ferret home with her and her 7 month old son. He has been some what ignored now that the baby has arrived. He was in a very small starter cage and I felt sorry for him so I began looking for an upgrade. Love this cage very sturdy and easliy assembled. Got it for 179 at 1-800 pets bought access for cage hammock, pan covers ramp covers and other toys he has a lot of fun up and down the cage now I think he needs a friend we have a ferret rescue here who is helping me find a good fit. My daughter says "oh Mom you're so over board" but it's the right theng to do so he's not lonley and cramped since he doesn't get out as often as before

Awesome Ferret Hotel, 2/21/2013

Ferret Nation Habitat Model 182 Double Unit from Lafayette, LA

Bought this double unit with 3 ferrets from local pet store for $175. I was told the prior owner was going off to war & the 3 had to go together. Have had the ferrets for about 4 years now but the ferret housing is awesome. It was completely assembled when I bought it so have no info on assembly. The wide double doors are great and make cleaning a snap. I have bought 2 small cat litter pans for the top and bottom shelf and put about 1/4 of Fresh Step clumping cat litter in each. The ferrets love it and rarely miss using the box. When I have to transport them with me in a smaller cage they don't like it and are constantly pulling at the door. When I arrive home & they go back in their double unit hotel ( that's what we call it ) they are immediately relaxed & love it. Would definitely recommend this product for quality, size & craftsman's ship.

Ashley from Vacation town, ohio

I've had the ferret nation for a few months now. It housed a ferret for a few short weeks (he's gone now) while he lived in it he was so happy with the room I used a regular cat litter box at the bottom he never messed in the cage always used the litter box :) downstairs was bathroom food area top area was for beds and toys, only problem I had and I'm not complaint was I couldn't get a water bottle to stay on safely and properly so I did use lock on crocks they were wonderful but my little guy was a digger so I couldn't leave for more then a few hours because he would be without water. Cleaning the cage was a breeze 10 mins to do light cleaning 20 mins to sterilize the plastic I love this cage and it was well worth the money I spent I recommend this to really anyone who has to cage an animal (that won't squeeze through 1") this cage is also huge bigger then I expected and only took me a 1/2 hour my 2 year old helped a little lol you won't regret it *****

Escapee , 1/17/2013

Sophie from Florida

I found my ferret down the hall way in our dogs mouth one morning after she opened the cage and got out, something fell in the hole where the bar goes so it looked closed and she jumped out. When she had her old really small cage, she would go to the bathroom all over and in this giant cage she only uses her litter box! she adores the cage and so do I!

New home, 1/3/2013

ANTHONY ROBINSON from West Columbia,SC

This is a great cage. Works out just fine for my female ferret. She started out in one of those small beginner cages that didnt have any room for her to do anything, but now she enjoying the new cage. It came with ramp covers which i thought was good. It wasnt that bad putting it together by myself, but you could always use an extra pair of hands to make assembly quicker. Also noticed that the ramps were bent or had a "bow" in the middle when i got it. Probably due to shipping. its a sturdy cage and shes adjusting to it, but nowwhenever she uses the litter pan she tends to go to the wrong corner of the cage and poops. There are no side edges to the cage so when she does this, it goes straight out the cage! It keeps me busy to say the least!! Its a lot of cage for her to explore. And ahes enjoying it. thought of adding another ferret to the cage for a companion for her. But other than that its a good cage. Big enough!! Can roll around from room to room if i want to. Clean up is easy. Just a little more cage to wipe down than im use to thats all(smile). If you dont mind spending money on your ferret like me, then this would be a very good investment for them.

Did it myself, 12/14/2012

182 ferret nation 2 layer cage from Buxton, Maine

Cage arrived quickly and no pans or shelves were cracked. It at first looked over whelming as I took out the heavy gauge pieces. I read the step by step directions, locating each piece before starting. I started the bottom shelf assembly on my bed with castors and continued where the cage would sit. Now I am 60 yr old female and put it all together myself. Where I could have used a helping hand sliding a piece into the holes, I merely used a piece of electrical tape to hold it in place tightly on both ends. As everyone else stated, I did had to tap with hammer in couple spots to set a couple pieces down into holes and one square hole spot was not square but squished so had to tap it square. Otherwise everything went great. Oh I was missing one black screw but no big deal to replace. I love the durability of this cage and its easy doorway access for cleaning and arranging. My ferrets however will take time adjusting as they are 4 and 6 months old and have never been caged. I leave it open for now and let them get used to it off and on a half hr or less at a time. I purchased the outside ladder also to climb out of the cage. My ferrets(Demetrius &Oliver) are not used to climbing and jump, fall off the ladder, or bump their nose on cage trying to access levels. They will get used to in time. In all, I find this the best cage ever, having owned large tall smaller gauge wire cages in the past.

Just wow!, 12/3/2012

Harley Hanson from Laredo, Tx

I have had my two boy woozles in a Super Pet Cage for about a year. The quality of this cage is amazing. Putting the cage together is a two person job, you also need pliers, a hammer and zip ties for the top (my boys are escape artists). The cage took 20 mins to get together. I knew it was going to be big by the dimensions, but wow! I'm totally happy with my purchase! I also bought all the Ferret Nation Accessories to go with it! Love it totally!

They love it!, 11/27/2012

CHRIS GREEN from barboursville, WV

It was a big change going from the cage we had to this one but both of our ferrets love it! It's a lot bigger than the one we had & we were worried it would stress them out but as I said they love it. It gives them plenty of room to play & we don't have to worry about them falling from very high. Also, between me & my husband, the thing was easy peasy to put together. Took us a little under an hour.

Best cage ever!, 11/22/2012

Lo from PA

I just recently ordered this cage. It was here within two days and it was easy to set up. My four ferrets love it. It has a lot of room for toys and beds. I also recommend getting the accessory kits. The hammock and ramp covers are all so soft. I highly suggest buying this cage for ferrets. I might buy another one for my other three.

Definately needed for fur babies!, 11/20/2012

ZOEYandZEKROM'sMOM from pittsburgh, pa

I have had my eye on this cage for almost a year (when we got our first ferret) but could not justify spending so much on a cage since we already had one (we had a double shelf/ramp plastic cage from a pet store). We adopted another ferret and I found some coupon codes and decided to buy this cage. It was heavy carrying all the pieces up 3 flights of stairs (which I knew and warned my husband), but so worth it! I knew from the reviews that a rubber mallot was needed(and we really did and thankful for knowing that) and it took a little less than an hour to put together. I couldn't be happier with this huge home! Now, if only the babies would use the litterbox EVERYtime....life would be perfect! I highly recommend this cage (even if you have just one furbaby but a neccessity for multiple) and order it from ferret.com (best price and shipping cost!) Happy Holidays!

Great Cage., 11/2/2012

DieselJunki from Manassas, VA

Love this cage! It was extremely easy to put together (I did have help). It did come with a couple pieces bent from the shipping process but they were easily bent back with a pair of pliers (just be gentle as not to break anything). Also a hammer(rubber mallet would be best) was helpful when putting this together. My ferret seems to love it. I know I love it.

Compared to the 142 model, not great, 10/30/2012

Skerlock from Aurora, CO

I have had the ferret nation model 142 cage for about 6 years now and it finally reached it's limit. So I decided to order this model to replace it... Same basic cage except one big thing. The new "no tool" setup is a nightmare to set up and in my opinion not very stable at all. Everything just snaps together but very loosely in some places and I feel if it ever got hit too hard it would fall apart. The old model was all screwed together and very sturdy. Also made it easy to unscrew and move the cage to a new home when needed. I feel with this cage I would never be able to take it apart again without breaking something... Overall the design of this cage is still good and I love it. but unfortunately this new model is far off from the greatness of the 142.

Nice cage, AWFUL setup!, 10/26/2012

Miranda from Jackson, MS

I ordered this cage because I plan to convert it into a larger habitat for my baby iguana. It came in the mail, and I got it all open. I didn't expect it to be a simple setup, but here were the issues I had with it: The screwdriver that came with it was awful. It didn't work properly, and the screws were too large to work with the phillips head I already own. My hands are red and bruised from the awful little tool that came with it. The second issue, which is the major one, is that the side panels would not slid completely into the holes until I banged on the top of them with a hammer. I had to beat up the cage in order to make it fit. I checked the grating, I followed every last instruction on the manual, and I still had to pound the side panels in with a hammer. I was literally frustrated to the point of tears with this thing. I can easily lift 50 pounds. I have done plenty of handywork in my home. I am not inexperienced with things like this, and this thing was heinous to set up. The cage, now that it is set up, is nice, but the process was infuriating. Anyone considering this ought to take that into consideration before buying. Also, a few of the smaller metal "hooks" attached to the walls of the cage were bent out of shape.

Huge!, 10/6/2012

Dalton Foster from Salem, AR

This cage is very large and spacious. I wouldn't mind living in it as a ferret! I had a little trouble putting it together but I managed to do it. I recommend you have someone help you. Also, some of the pieces I had trouble fitting together but it was nothing a rubber mallet couldn't take care of. All in all a great cage! I can't wait to fill it up with hammocks, bedding, and toys.

I love this cage!, 8/13/2012

Kate from Unicoi, TN

I ordered this cage along with a bunch of other stuff in December (2011) It arrived and the box was a little beat up but I didn't care, I mean, the thing was over 100lbs and their was only one delivery guy. We had to roll it in. We had to go carry it up piece by piece up around 20 stairs. It was a pain and took about 2 hours to set it up and 3 more to get everything in, Get my room cleaned and everything but I would do it again ANYDAY! This cage is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. The doors open so wide and I can get in their, Clean it, feed them, get them out, without a problem. The only thing that was cracked was a tiny piece of one of the shelves. But I couldn't care less as I cover my shelves with pillow cases. But this is a very good cage and I got it for a great deal. I got it for $170! My ferrets love this cage too. They still get 6hrs of playtime everyday but at night or when they aren't out they Love sleeping in their Hammocks, Sleep sacks, blankets, tubes, or just laying on the fleece. Thanks so much Ferret.com!

The best cage out there!, 8/1/2012

April from Moundville, Alabama

This is the best cage by far if you have multiple ferrets! The double doors on top and bottom make cleaning litter boxes and bottom cage liners so easy. The shelf at the very bottom for storage is awesome for bags of food and litter. The wheels on cage are very useful for moving cage to sweep or vacuum . There have been some complaints about the cage not having splash guards in the event a ferret decides to go the the bathroom on a shelf that there isn't a litter box. I used old twin sheets, split them down the middle giving me two pieces, folded the two pieces individually and placed them on each shelf. My ferrets consider it bedding I guess and make more of an effort to use their litter boxes and not "go" on the bedding. I then put some old fleece material on the bottom of the top unit and now the only section left uncovered is the very bottom of the bottom unit where their litter boxes are. So if you have the extra money then I would invest in the pan covers and shelf covers. Or if you're cheap like me just do it yourself! Works like a charm!

Whooot!!, 7/28/2012

Brenna from Dalton, Georgia

First and foremost, my ferrets absolutely adore this home! It was a bit of a chore putting it together. I did need a mallot and two burly men to help me but we got it all together and got the bent pieces to go back the right way ((which were mainly just the connecting squares. No biggie!)) Its gigantic and beautiful and sturdy and very, very easy access to the shelves and pans for cleaning. I love everything about this home!

kat from acworth, ga

I absolutely love this cage. It was a little hard to put together, but with a bit of hammering you're good to go. My three ferrets love it and I don't feel bad about leaving them in this cage. There is plenty of space and easy to clean. And I wouldn't recommend any other site besides petsupplies.com for this purchase. I had looked at several other sites, but none compared to petsupplies. Finding their site to have the best deal, I purchased my cage for 15% off. The next day the price was reduced to 24% off and petsupplies adjusted my price after one quick email. the customer service and prices of petsupplies is the reason I am a loyal customer to them now. Best prices around!!

I ordered the FN Friday May 19th and I just received it today on the 23rd. THIS CAGE IS A PAIN IN THE BUTT TO PUT TOGETHER!!!!!!!! Took me almost two hours because all the little squares on the cage were BENT! I had to hammer down the poor cage. But other than setting it up and actually building it I LOVE THE CAGE!!!! My ferrets Pinkh and Zora do as well. You should totally buy this cage but be PREPARED for the setup of it. (:

Great cage but I've had an issue, 5/19/2012

Legrand from AL

I really like this cage. It is roomy and looks great in my house. The doors are wide and fully open on both levels so you can easily reach the back of the cage. I bought this for my single ferret (who is deaf) and, after conquering her fear of going down and up the ramps, she is all over the place. I don't have quite as many tantrums when it is time for a nap. It's probably a good idea to spend the extra money and get the scatter guard (at least for the top level). I have had to clean poop falling over the side and getting on everything on the lower level twice now (she's still potty training). My only problem with the unit is that the latter that attaches to the middle/upper grid is unable to be attached because of the locking tabs that hold the side to the front and back pieces. Make sure that the lower and middle/upper grids are in the notches that are cut out on the sides otherwise it will throw the unit off balance. Overall, it looks great, is secure and my ferret loves it.

Great cage, 5/1/2012

KALENA SAUNDERS from Vancouver, Canada

It was a bit of a pain to put together alone. I suggest using a rubber mallet to bang some of the pieces together, some of the fits are a bit tight. Once it's together though, I LOVE this cage. and so do my fuzzies!

Ferret Mansion, 4/26/2012

J Johnson from Mayfield Village, OH

This cage arrived exactly 5 days after ordered (ground UPS.) While the packaging did not include a bunch of excessive padding, and the shipping box did appear a bit "beat up" all contents were in tip-top shape and went together in minutes. While the directions say no tools are necessary, I'd recommend a rubber mallet in order to coax some of the corner/side pieces into their respective slots. Only 4 ramp hook extensions were included when 6 (3 ramps x 2 hooks) should have been packaged with the contents. We will have this cage for a very, very long time and I'm confident our ferrets and those thereafter will love it and be more healthy as a result. The finished product sits proudly in our sunroom, so that all our cute little fuzzies will have a great view of the outdoors and wildlife just inches away from them. Thanks for producing such a high-quality product.

Terrible assembly process, but has its pluses, 4/22/2012

Anthony from Ferreton

I probably got a bad one because I had a terrible time putting it together. Nothing seemed to fit, pieces were bent, too large, not flush with other parts...it just seemed like a poor manufacturing job. All in all it took me about 3 hours to put it together. I actually had to break out my rotary tool and grind down pegs just enough so they would actually fit(believe me, this cage needed it...I put my entire 160lb frame on top of one of the sides and it still wouldn't go in). On several occasions I had to use a hammer to bend pieces into shape as well as force pieces into place. I had to remove a piece of metal lodged inside a hole preventing a peg from going in. The doors do not close neatly, you have to squeeze the handles then push it in until it clicks. And to top it all off...the top piece just sort of sits there. I have a feeling an adventurous fuzzy would have no problem pushing up a corner and falling out. I'll have to get zip ties for it. However, once it was all put together it really is a sight to behold. It looks nice, it's roomy and is very easy to access. It's like Ikea furniture, the assembly sucks and you probably don't want to move it much afterwards. Your fuzzies will love it though, and that'll make it all worthwhile.

Happy Ferrets!, 4/21/2012

Kara from Liberty Hill, TX

We have two fuzz babies, and this cage completely fits the bill! Sturdy construction. My little escape artist has yet to figure out the doors. No more luggage locks needed to keep the mischievous ones contained while I'm at work! Space! My little hoarder has all sorts of spots to hide her toys. The locking center ramp is a very nice feature, making it easy to get at one level or the other without releasing the ferrets. Accessory connection loops under each shelf: Excellent bit of design! The possibilities are endless! Complete customization for changing the interior of the cage to keep ferrets interested in their habitat. Storage shelf. If the storage shelf were not on the bottom of the cage, it would be perfect for me. My ferrets are far too clever at opening storage containers and bags for their own good. Shipping: My unit lost a small chip of hammertone finish from one door in shipping. A small complaint. It can be fixed with some enamel. One connection peg on each side panel was bent during shipping. Also a small complaint. A mallet was all that was needed to straighten the pegs. I was a bit daunted at the 107lb weight of this cage, but it has proved to be easy to move on its casters. Locking casters are a nice touch. Overall, a very well thought-out, well engineered, and well made piece of equipment. By far, the most superior ferret cage I have had the pleasure to own.

I love the cage, but it was hard to put together, 3/18/2012

Grace from Clarkfield,mn

Pros- Shipped really fast. Huge, amazing cage! I love the huge swinging doors. My chinchilla loves the felt ladder covers and he likes the big size. Its better to get a nce heavy duty cage rather than a few bad cages. Cons- the pieces didnt fit together right. I had to use a hamer on every single side, and the one door was crooked. I fixed it though. It took me over two and a half hours to put together the ferret nation double. It works perfect now tho, best cage ever.

Simply the BEST cage out there, 3/7/2012

Noelle from Pittsfield, MA

My three little fuzzbuts absolutely LOVE this cage and so do I. I broke it down into my pros and cons: Pros: The fully opening doors make it absolutely easy to get things and fuzzies out of the cage and makes it a breeze to clean. The half shelves are adjustable so you can make any and all accessories fit exactly how you want. It is definitely big enough to fit my three babies. The Happy Feet ramps are great for kits to get up and down the stairs easily. It is WELL MADE and SOLID. There is NO WAY your ferrets will get out and you can feel confident that they are safe. The shelf for storage on the bottom is ESSENTIAL and easily holds their food, litter, and gallons of water for on demand use. Cons: If you use pet bedding your fuzzies WILL toss it out of the cage whether by accident or on purpose and it does create a big mess that has to be vacuumed about once a week. Yes they sell scatter guards specifically for this cage but they have a tendency to be on backorder and I haven't read any really great reviews on them. Plus they would block some of the view of my ferrets and I just love to watch them when they are not out playing with me. What I will be transitioning to is tight knit carpet (you can get it in specific sizes at Home Depot and Lowes) so that should be an easy fix. The second con is that the fully opening doors make it easy for the fuzzies to GET out onto you when you have the doors open for cleaning or freshening water etc. It's mostly funny getting covered in ferrets in a split second but it can be a trick to get them all in there without accidentally squishing a ferret toe or nose etc. Last but not least the way the doors close (there are two small holes for the rods to insert when you squeeze and release the door openings). Those small holes tend to get bedding and food or litter in them and have to be vacuumed out periodically. This is no big deal and in no way affects the way the cage functions or it's safety for your ferrets. Frankly, this is the absolute BEST cage for the money, guaranteed. I originally bought the best cage they sold at PETCO only to be extremely disappointed at how flimsy it was. Made of mostly plastic, it was a horror and I returned it as soon as my Ferret Nation one came in. I also ordered the single model for a downstairs/nighttime cage for my fuzzies. I will never have to buy a new cage again. Don't pass this one up!

It's huge :), 2/29/2012

Sammy from Ashtabula Ohio

I bought the cage on Saturday and wasn't expecting it to arrive until today. But came home last night from work to discover the cage sitting in my living room. Started to put it together last night but couldn't get the pieces to fit. Not knowing you needed a rubber mallet. Continued with it today, I used a regular hammer with a wash cloth/towel over it to prevent scratches and what not. I had really no problems since I did majority of the work by myself. If you're short like me I would recommend a step stool to finish the top part of the cage. I did have to hammer it into place. The only down fall that I have with it is how it's put together. I'd rather have the screws and what not to hold everything in place. But I used zip ties to help keep it together. Shock and Weezy were thrilled to have a bigger cage they had explored for a good half hour. It's a good price, didn't really have any problems with UPS. But i do have a shelf that is cracked. But it's no big deal I used black duct tape can't tell the difference :) But overall my ferrets and I are extremely pleased with the purchased. As always never had a problem with ferret.com. I've been ordering from them since '09.

Awesome!, 2/28/2012

Amber from Key west,fl

I just recieved it tonight. My four fuzzies definitly approve! Good sturdy cage! If you lift holding the top it will come undone as someone said in earlier reviews but zip ties would fix it easy. Or just lift from the bottom level. Two things made me leary of buying. One shipping weight is 100 lbs but it is very easy to roll around. The other was all the shipping horror stories. Mine came in great condition. The box was in perfect shape and everything inside as well! You will need a rubber mallot or something similar but no big deal. The water bottle is a little difficult to find a brace bar but i thnk i will just use a zip tie. Overall this cage is the best one available!!

The best ferret cage we've owned, 2/23/2012

Mike Miller from Ottawa, Illinois

After fifteen years of having 11 ferrets in our lives, and after purchasing 5 other cages, this has got to be the best we've ever owned. The assemble took less than 20 minutes and the quality is great. This cage was deffinatly designed with ferrets and owners alike. Thank you so much for this product.

A bit wobbly, 2/22/2012

rob from Denver, CO

If I had known that the base would be wobbly I would have gone for a used 142 model with screws. This is a snap together, which really doesn't snap together. The pieces just slide together, sometimes requiring a hammer, and some of the pieces have some play in them. I put it together and then rolled it to the location that I wanted it. Once I had done so I noticed that the base was not inline with the rest of the cage and actually looks like it could possibly snap. I can push against the cage which will line the base with the rest of the cage but once I let go, it goes back to it's bent position again. Other than that, I like the cage but I would consider calling Midwest to return it and get a used cage but I don't want to have to fork over more money to pay for shipping and I don't want my ferret to have to go with a much smaller cage while I am waiting. So I guess I am stuck. If you can, get a used 142, I think you would probably be happier.

Absolutely Amazing Cage, 2/21/2012

PAIGE MOORE from Erlanger, KY

I thought I wouldn't get another ferret... but I did. I though I wouldn't get a bigger cage... I did. What's next? Anyway this cage is great. I was surprised it fit so well upstairs seeing as how the ceiling is slanted. The big doors on both floors make it easy to put any toy in, and easy to change liter and food. Lily and Molly love the cage. Now that there is room for more beds and hide aways they often go back into the cage for some wrestling or burrowing! The only thing I can complain about is the assembly. The directions are somewhat obscure and "no tools required" should say "get out the hammer". Other then that great cage and I'm gonna hate taking it apart when I move out. *Note: I bought this at a local Petsmart so I have no idea how it's handled shipping wise.

Huge home for our little fur balls!, 2/10/2012

Summer D. from Carthage, NY

We just placed our order on Tuesday, and yes I did choose to pay the extra $1.00 to get the delivery days pushed down to 2-5day delivery, we got it in exactly 2 days! they were very quick on sending it out. We got ours by UPS, the box was a little damaged, but the pieces were all fine (except one must have been a manufacturing accident, on one of our ramps the second metal cross bar down was not fully connected, we just cut it off the rest of the way). This cage is way bigger than the one we already had so our Ferrets (Panda & Fox) are extremely happy. This cage is as tall as I am, our last one only reached my chest. Its HUGE!!! we also invested in the PIRATE SHIP bed, oh my goodness let me tell you our babies were right inside that thing! And today when I came to let them out of the cage, our female ferret (Panda), did not want to come out. This cage overall is very lovely and gives animals the space they need to move around when they are not out and about the house. The only thing I wish that they had come with the cage is the SCATTER GUARDS. I'll just have to invest in the very soon, since our male ferret (Fox) is still in the process of being potty trained, he has already had an accident out the side of the cage :(

Great product, 2/8/2012

Koani from Corpus Christi, TX

After reading how awesome the cage was, I finally went ahead and bought one for my two boys. My last two cages were almost as much and were held together by cheap plastic pieces and needed additional zip ties. They also did not last longer than a year. My ferts bent the bars open at the corners/top which made me worry I'd come home and find one with their head stuck in between, pulled the doors open, and they were a hassle to clean. The removable shelves are a godsend, but the fact that they can't worm their way out if I don't want them to or get hurt trying makes it worth every penny. I had thought of buying the add-on later but for now, I don't even need it because there's so much space. I read comments that maybe it wouldn't be as sturdy as the 142 because it has no screws or bolts, but I rolled it from room to room without it separating (including over pieces from the box it came in.) My only negative experience so far was with the shipping with UPS. I think if I had the choice I may have gotten it at the store because my box came shredded in the corners and many of the grids were bent. Like other reviewers I also had to use a hammer to straighten it out so I could put it together. One pan is missing a chunk from the lip also. Midwest is replacing the pan and Ferret.com's customer service offered to ship a new cage though, so the fail is completely with UPS (of course!) Aside from that, I would completely recommend this to anyone.

Best cage ever, 2/4/2012

YankeesGirl from Newark, NJ

I bought this cage as a replacement and bday gift for my baby girl. 4mos before I bought this cage I got Luna a little brother. I wanted them to have enough space and this was the perfect cage. They love it and so do I. I never had a problem with it. Didnt come bend, or any damage. I guess I'm luck? I love to shop on this site. This site is the best and its so much cheaper then anybody including petco. The only problem I had was with delivery (fedex)they are the worst. They end up delivering my package to someone else. I call ferret.com and told them I never received my package. They were nice enough to offer me a new package in replacement of my lost.. Lucky enough I knew where my package end up and went to pick it up myself.. Over all this website is very good and so is this cage.

Awesome Cage!!!, 1/26/2012

Ruthie from Hartwell, Georgia

first of all, this is very heavy lol. it took about 30 mins to put together,wasn't that difficult. i recommend using a rubber mallet tho. to help ease some parts of the cage into there places. over all this cage is awesome, and my 3 ferrets- Pockets, Buttons and Our new baby ferret Loki. really really likes all the extra space. the only thing i dont like is that when the back into a corner, there poop comes out thru the bars and onto the floor and wall.. also, you can buy level covers and matching bedding. thru custom order. like your get to pick out the fabric and prints. got to Littleferretfeet.org. Rose, is a very sweet and talented lady :) out of any bedding you decide to use for your cage i HIGHLY recommend Rose

Very Nice home for your pet., 12/29/2011

Cheebs from Iowa

I bought this cage about 2 months ago and I am very happy with it. Shipping handled my package well, the UPS guy even carried it inside for me as it is extremely heavy. Assembly is different as there is no tools, but I preferred this. It was a bit difficult to fit some pieces together but just working them I got them to go. My ferret seems to really like the cage, the pet store cage she had been in had no levels and it actually took her a day or two to get used to the ramps. We built a ramp for her to get out of the cage to play and back in to potty. Just used a wide piece of wood and stapled some cute fabric to it. The few accidents she has had out of her litter -go everywhere. That would be the only real downfall so far. They could have made the plastic levels sides a bit higher to prevent this. I built her a large litter pan out of a rubbermaid container and fill every other corner with bedding or food and since then she has not had any accidents. It is hard to fill this cage with accessories and food it is so huge! Overall very pleased.

Alexander Loves It!, 12/28/2011

Tyler LaChapelle from CT

I am 17 year old that bought a ferret for the first time. He was living in a a large bird cage at first that was 3'6" X 3' for a month because it was all I had. For Christmas I bought this for my ferret, Alexander, and it was fantastic for the cost. The only problems were how the mail handed the package, there were cracks in the plastic floors and the metal cage was bent but it only took me 30 min to full assemble. The ramps were a two steep for my ferret but the great thing about the cage was that you can adjust the platforms so I adjusted them so ramps were at a 20 degree angle. My ferret loves the cage, he has enough room for an area to go to the bathroom, sleep, eat, drink and of course play. I highly recommend this to anyone with one or two ferrets.

syekim from Wichita, KS

Our ferrets LOVE this cage. I LOVE this cage. It went together in 1/2 hr or less :) The doors open ALL the way across the cage & ferrets CAN'T open them. Both levels are off the floor with a storage shelf under them, yea! Much easier to clean than any other cage we've used in 12 years. GET this when it's back in stock. We actually bought Critternation cage (bars closer together) and the available cover. The cover is wonderful, it lets the babies have more of the darkness they like when sleeping :) Just can't say enough good about this product.

Bent out of shape, 12/7/2011

ihvnnm from Fall River, MA

Took about an hour to put it together, many of the hooks and pegs were bent out of shape, requiring a hammer and pliers to reshape (some were completely crushed) One of the plastic shelves had a huge crack, the box itself was pretty dinged up (most likely from shipping) However all the headaches, it turned out to be an awesome cage, plenty of space, very tall, not much wider than most super pets, the additional ramp is a must. Ferrets are now adjusting and go back into the cage when they become tired. Wide doors make feeding, cleaning and playing so much easier. The cage itself is very sturdy and doesn't shake. I would highly recommend the cage, just be warned you might need to adjust some of the metal before putting it together.

Great Cage, 12/4/2011

Spokane Chin from Spokane WA

I am going to say that i love this cage. it does have som ethings that were not the greatest about it but overall it is wonderful. so bad: super hard to put together. confusing directions, peices dont fit, and peices bent. but i got it together in about an hour and half alone so its doable. did need a hammer so the "no tools required" is not true. I did have to zip tie the top on because although it fits it is not a tight fit. The good: this cage is HUGE. so much bigger than expected. the doors opening up all the way is great. I have chins and they love the room. it is also easier to clean and get them out to play. over all i love this cage.

Good Product, 11/28/2011

Tara from Wichita

I upgraded to this cage thinking that if they had more room to run around they would play in there cage more. Unfortunately, they don't really play in there cage they just like to have roam of the house when I'm home. although it's much bigger it's easier to clean because of the easy access front doors. The trays are easy to remove easy to clean. They do have accidents in the bottom cage frequently... I wish the tray was tall on the bottom to prevent accidents from leaving the cage. I havn't had any problems with rusting. It's easy to move around although it's ginormous! I like having the bottom storage level to keep all the ferrets cleaning and food container. :)

Must have ferret habitat, FN 182!, 11/16/2011

Whitney from Champaign, IL

Pros: 4 ferrets with their food/water dishes and potties and beds fit very comfortably, very high quality, plenty of storage space underneath, easy to open up and clean, escape proof, somewhat expensive but a good value for the money, ramp covers are cute, customer service gets back to you quickly, very big nice looking cage. Cons: Instructions are confusing, a lot of the connecting pieces were bent out of shape and needed to be hammered together to get them to fit, took a couple hours and 2 people to complete assembly, not sure no tool assembly is an improvement because the top is not flush and does not sit flat, plastic floors and shelves had a strong chemical smell for weeks even after scrubbing with soap and hot water in the tub.

Really nice cage!, 11/3/2011

brinzie from Phoenix, AZ

When I first got the cage, many parts were bent and uneven. I had to use a hammer to straighten bars out and pliers to reshape some other things. One of the half shelves was chipped on the side, but nothing to bad. Other than all of that, the cage is nice and sturdy! It took about 15 minutes unpacking and figuring out what was what, and about 30 minutes putting it together (two people). Only one ferret lives in mine currently, but now that I have this cage, Im getting 1 or 2 more ferts! Overall, this is a really nice and solid cage. It's way bigger than I expected!

let me start with the good and go to the horrible yes horrible. 1 the cage itself is worth the money buy it most deffinately if u have space for it its great to clean easy to manage its everything an owner would want. 2. my ferrets went insane w hen i put them in they saw all their stuff in the top level and hoped around flipped and i mean went insane cuz they were so happy ive never seen them THIS CRAZY then they finally calmed down and i notice ever since i gave them this bigger home they are nicer happier and just easier to manage so this cage is a deffinate yes!. now here my problem. 1 the instructions need to be a little bit more clear as to what piece is what and should put the alphabet labels ON THE PIECE but honestly it wasnt that hard im just suggesting they should label the pieces 2. SHIPPING WAS HORRIBLE FOR THIS if i could of went to a near by pet co and picked it up i would of instead because shipping handeled my package so horribly i had to actially get a hammer and plyers and reopen slots and reshape parts of the cage so it would fit the way its supposed to it disgusts me how shipping treated the cage. also i watched the ups worker drop this 107 Lbs package out of his truck didnt try to put it down on the top step he from the inside pushed it out his truck and let it fall so i could ojnly imagine w.t.f ups did before him. i should not have to pay almost 200$ for a cage i bassicaly needed to remake myself so it would be able to be put together. now im not blaming ferret.com its an amazing product exactly what you would want and hopefuly when everyone else buys this their shipping company treats it well. as for over all satisfaction after some work i am 100% satisfied with my purchase and will be a permanent costomer of ferret.com unbeatable prices and top quality products

Chinchilla loves it!!, 10/28/2011

Jennlew from Tampa, Fl

My chin loves this cage. I am so pleased with the quality and durability. Do not buy any other cage! I wasted $130 on the super pet exotics when I should have just put the money into this to begin with. The price is expensive but I got it 20$ off the normal price and if you buy it from petsmart it's 250$, which is rediculous! And shipping is only $5.99! There is so much room for my chins and shipping was fast and everything arrived intact

Practical, 10/25/2011

MICHAEL SCHOFIELD from Solomons

Great for viewing, but hard to clean. Ferrets, will be Ferrets and back-up to the fence and out and down the side. Urine guards are available, but closing the sides of the whole cage is not practical, or affordable. each corner piece guard is around 16 bucks each.

Wonderful cage..., 10/22/2011

Kristynicolang from PA

..But some things could use a change. Whenever i read reviews on this site and another site about this cage i was thinking about not buying it because how damaged other peoples were because of shipping. Whenever i got my cage both pans were cracked and i called midwest to get a replacement. maybe some more support in packaging is in mind? putting the cage together was very simple and took about 45 minutes to an hour. Rubber hammers are handy in putting it together though. The cage is very sturdy and very heavy. Im actually using my cage for a holland lop rabbit so i did modify the cage a little. he absolutely loves running up and down the levels. i would recommend this cage to everybody.

Love it!!!!!, 10/22/2011

Rochelle from Corpus Christi, TX

This cage is huge :) My Fuzzies love it! It is really heavy and takes a little while to put together, but it's worth it!! Great cage, has lots of room for them to play! I'm so glad I read the reviews and went with the Ferret Nation cage :)

AMAZING cage!!, 10/13/2011

Freya Marie from Vermont

This cage is great. I did find that I needed a rubber mallet towards the end to get everything together flush, but still managed to do it by myself (which is amazing by itself). It is HUGE and I cannot wait to get my fuzzy a cagemate, now that we have the space! It is SUPER heavy in the box though -- be careful! I had to take the pieces out and carry them up separately to get them to my fuzzy's room.

The best!, 10/8/2011

Forever Home Ferrets from Huntsville, AL

This cage is the best of any on the market. Personally and in the shelter, we prefer the Ferret Nation cage for ease of cleaning, arranging and care of the ferrets!

LOVE IT!, 10/8/2011

Liz from Iowa

We bought this after searching for a cage for our ferrets that would be easy to clean and fun and spacious for them. This cage is HUGE! It is so much easier to use than any other cage we have ever owned, and we have owned alot of pets with cages over the years. IT is big enough our 2 male ferrets have plenty of room to play and also have their own space... now they play instead of fight. Very happy with our purchase.

Great cage overall, do not let the no screws deter, 10/1/2011

brandy1179 from Harrisburg, PA

I read review after review on this cage, and was not going to buy it because of a couple complaints about it coming apart easily. Do not let this deter you. Yes, I agree I wish it was put together with screws. But your furry friends will not be able to tear down the cage on their own. Do not however try to move it far with them in, because if you were to lift at all a side could come off. This cage is a breeze to clean compared to my old cage, with both doors coming open, the shelves OVER the metal bars. And my favorite feature of all.... the ramp from the bottom area up to the top will clip up and you can clean the bottom while your babies are secure in the top and not trying to help you clean at the bottom! I highly recommend this cage and my two ferrets love the extra space. I suggest having two people put it together. I did it alone and could have used the extra hands. You will need a hammer as some of the rods and openings are a bit bent. I did have trouble getting the doors to securely close at first, but I found out if you make sure the plastic floor panels go behind the metal tab where the doors come together, the doors will shut easier.

Guys love it! But a little more QC would be nice., 9/2/2011

B from NY

My boys LOVE this cage, it's very open and easy to clean. My only issue is with the quality control over at Midwest... I had to fight a bit to get the thing put together. Some of the corners where the pegs fit in were bent inward and would not fit together until I pried them apart with a pair of pliers. There were some other issues with pieces warping and requiring extra maneuvering in order to fit together. Probably the worst issue was with the top, which was so warped that it would not lay flat, and created so much of a gap that the ferrets could have escaped right out of the top of the cage. I put zip ties around the top and was able to seal it down so that no one can get out, but that is somewhat of a large flaw.

Comes damaged every time, 8/15/2011

Duhh001 from Michigan

Bought the 182 and it came damaged. It's 150 lbs of metal with virtually no shock absorption material in the box. The doors don't line up, the pieces were scratched up and the Top was bent so won't sit flush. I asked for a replacement top, and said I can live with the rest, but they refused and sent out another full replacement. Second cage came same as the first cage. No surprise there. Still refused to send just the top, so stuck with damaged cage. Great design to cage, but due to cost cutting measures and poor execution, expect issues.

<3 FERRET NATION 182!, 8/8/2011

Cass from Morris Plains, NJ

Great cage that required little to no tools. Every possible improvement made from the 142 model kept ferrets and their owners in mind. Spacious, easily cleanable, easy set-up (though it does take about 45 min.) Definitely worth the money spent! Don't buy anything else!

Great Product , 8/8/2011

Amber from Maine

The ferret nation is big with removable trays and wide doors for easy access and cleaning. It has a storage unit which comes in handy. This cage is expensive but very durable and will last you a while.

Great Investment, 8/3/2011

TIMOTHY MCDERMOTT from Atlanta, GA

After trying to get by with make-do arrangements, I'm really glad I spent the money for this quality product. It is well designed and made of durable materials. I've since added an additional level and, using "blast gates" designed for workshop dust collection systems, incorporated a run of Marshall's Ferret Super Thru-Way Tunnel on the adjacent wall, making my Lucy a spacious triplex. I expect we'll be using it for many years to come.

Not Perfect, But Close, 8/2/2011

Joseph P from Bowling Green, VA

The quality has a few quarks that I'm not crazy about (a few bad solders that broke loose), but compared to the "smaller" cages, it's no comparison that this thing is above the others. The cage assembles and disassembles easily. If you have to take it apart too many times, I would suggest finding hardware at your local hardware store since the bolts are made of relatively soft metal. In other words, it's definitely built as a permanent structure. The good news is that it is good looking enough to put somewhere relatively public in your home without a problem. I have 3 ferrets, 1 extremely active, and this gives them plenty of "play room" for when I'm at work. BTW, it's close enough to the ground that a full-grown ferret can jump back inside without a ramp. Added plus!

WORTH THE PRICE IN EVERY WAY, 7/23/2011

Dawn from Dallas, Texas

This is a wonderful cage of excellent quality: sturdy, spacious, VERY easy to clean which was my main reason for buying it, the ferrets LOVE it, and it is very nice looking. My guys love cruising the levels and speeding up and down the ramps. Top of the line, this is the best. I added a third unit on top and an extra shelf, put it together easily all by myself. It provides plenty of room for all 8 rescue fuzzies, each one has a shelf/deck to themselves if they want. This is the best price at Ferret.com, especially once you figure in the $5.99 shipping. Do not buy any other cage, this is THE ONE you want...promise.

KATY SANTIAGO from Atascadero, Ca

This cage was very easy to clean, corners were accessible, easy to move around. I had 3 ferrets that enjoyed this cage much better than the ones with the tiny doors. It also very easy to assemble.
