Awesome cage, EXTREMELY difficult to assemble
Virginia from Seattle, WA – Verified Buyer
The cage itself is awesome and everything I hoped for, but it is EXTREMELY difficult to assemble. Even with two people, it was a massive pain and some pieces simply did not fit into the slots they should have without a LOT of finagling and using a mallet to tap (or rather, bang) it into place. Also, the instructions labeled the four side panels as identical, but only after we were down to the last step of putting on the top did we discover that two of them had holes for an attachment meant to hold the top in place while the other two did not. Guess where the pieces with the holes were On the bottom as we'd not realized there was any difference. I reread the instructions several times and this truly isn't mentioned anywhere until you get to the final step and realize only two of the pieces have holes for this attachment. We had to dismantle nearly the entire thing to swap the pieces and do it all over again, including trying to fit together the maddening sections that just didn't quite want to line up right unless you exerted a lot of force and wiggling and used a rubber mallet. The finished product is great and I don't regret buying it one bit... I just wish it hadn't been such a pain to put together. Prepare to spend time cursing andor crying andor considering tossing the whole thing out a window. I would never ever try to assemble this cage without two people. It's a joke that the instructions say it's possible to do with one person, but may be difficult. I do not think it would be possible at all.
Bigger than expected!
Brandy from FL – Verified Buyer
I got this cage for my pet Florida grey squirrel. Squirrels need lots of space to jump, climb, and multiple nesting sites. This cage didn't disappoint! The pictures don't do it justice, as it's much bigger than the pics lend to your imagination! I got the addon unit as well, thinking I'd need it, but really, the double unit cage is plenty big. I'll keep the addon anyway (although, Wayfair sent me the Critter Nation addon, instead of the Ferret Nation one. Thank goodness they fit together the same way!) Both units together, on top of the stand wcasters, it is over 7 feet tall!! I needed a step ladder to assemble the addon unit to the top. You get a bargain with the price and quality of this cage. The ramps and shelves are larger than I expected. A little bit overkill for my squirrel, but I imagine ferrets have plenty of room to lay down and play as well. The door locks are awesome, there's no way an animal could manipulate the doors open. I'd recommend the Critter Nation cages if you have smaller animals, like rats, however! My squirrel is full grown, so the bar spacing isn't a big deal, but younger or smaller squirrels, or rats would be safer with the Critter Nation line (bars are horizontal and 12 spacing). I've used MANY different types of cages, and wish they had this unit when I started - You can't beat the price for the quality and satisfaction of size that Midwest offers! Assembly was a breeze! A mallet would be handy to secure the dowels tight, but the rest is supplied (few screws and tabs and a nifty Philips screwdriver). I'm in love with this cage - so is my squirrel! The trays are easy to clean, because they can be removed and hosed off, and the covers can be removed and washed. And the unit can be modified easily to accommodate more units if you have more than 2-3 ferrets (this unit should do fine for up to 3 full grown ferrets).
Nice, large, attractive cage
Lisa from Coker, AL – Verified Buyer
This cage is well made, sturdy and attractive. It was fairly easy to put together. I love the fabric covered ramps. I sewed cloth covers to place over the trays, a hammock, tunnel, pillow and critter cube in matching/contrasting prints. This cage has plenty of room for my two chinchillas. However, I bought this mainly because I needed to keep my chins separate. (The older one tries to hurt my new baby.) The method by which the opening between the two areas can be closed is totally unreliable and very easy for my chins to open and get through. Luckily I was watching when I first put them in. I had to patch the opening with wire. Also the bars are spaced too far apart for baby chinchillas- they easily slip thru the bars. Pros: Attractive, well-made, sturdy/durable, fabric ramps Cons: Closure between 2 parts is not reliable
Fantastic, with minor flaws!
John from Buffalo NY
The pet store around my area sells this exact cage for 299.99 I figured I could find is cheaper and I did! This is a phenomenal cage for your fuzzies. Now for the pros full face doors, cleaning is a breeze and youll never huff and puff about it again I promise, its very roomy for my two fuzz butts after being transferred from a 2 story one unit cage from years a go they hardly know what to do with themselves. Cons the cage is a pain in the neck to put together, I advise to read the instruction verbatim. The box says no tools needed but trust me you need a rubber mallet and some elbow grease. (Its 107 pounds with virtually no packaging contents to prevent the cage parts from slamming off of one another and warping them) but saving money there is no complaints. I would recommend two people. I expected them to be somewhat beat up, I also had to zip tie the top, the two clips that come provided arent enough to keep to top secure. But I recommend buying this, its easily the best cage on the market. By far.
Great Quality. Flexible.

Works great for Ferrets or larger small animals. Don't think you can buy a better cage. You can let the animals go between the two units or close off the opening and have two separate units. There is also an add-on unit (no stand and it mounts on top of these) available so you can go 3 high. I suppose you could go higher but it wouldn't be reachable. If you have smaller small animals like sugar gliders you need to go with the Critter Nation. It is very similar but has smaller wire spacing.
cindy from miami, FL – Verified Buyer
I foster felines, and this cage is amazing for kittens. You can divide it into two separate cages, each with an additional half shelf, or open it for a larger litter. It is well made, very sturdy, and the spacing on the bars is small enough to be safe for kittens. Unlike some other cages, since it does NOT fold down you don't have the risk of kitties getting their paw pads caught if they play in the corners (I've had this happen with some 4' tall condos I have). Great value, very durable For some folks or situations, the fact that this does not fold down might be a negative. As stated above, this also eliminates the risk of injury in the corners.
Awesome ferret cage!
Sarah from Ohio – Verified Buyer
I purchased this cage for my 2 ferrets, and they absolutely love it! It's SO roomy and the large access doors make it super easy to clean! It has cut my daily cleaning time in half! Based on the other reviews, I was very nervous about the assembly, but to my surprise, my husband and I found it very simple & easy to put together! We had it assemblied in less than 1 hour! Rubber mallet is definately required though to hammer it all together. One of the shelves did come with a small chip missing in the corner, but I called the manufacturer and they replaced it right away. Only minor complaint is that one of the cage doors seems a little 'off' and I have to jiggle it a little to get it locked into place. Overall, not a big deal though. My fuzzies love the cage and maneuver between the levels with ease. I'm very happy with the purchase and I would recommend it to anyone in the market for a new ferret cage.
Great for cats
Angel's Wish Pet Adoption and Resource Center from Verona, WI – Verified Buyer
We've purchased several of these cages for use at our Adoption Center for cats and kittens.They work well for both young kittens to play around in, as well as for our adult cats to have more room to move around. When we're at full capacity, we just switch the trays around and divide the cage into two units instead of one. We've previously purchased Critter Nation cages but found the bars too close together to really show off our adoptable animals. The cage is easy to clean for our volunteers.
Ferrets Love It - So Do We!
Lisa from Fort Worth, TX – Verified Buyer
We were looking for a sturdy, well-built home for our little guys, and found it! It has tons of room, so you can load them up with toys and other things designed to keep them entertained. Plus it's super easy to clean, which is always a plus. The ability to raise one of the ramps and close off the upper and lower sections is great when they need their "space"! Highly recommend to anyone thinking of investing in a new house... Definitely worth the extra money!
ferret nation cage
Michael from Graham, WA – Verified Buyer
My first ferret nation cage I bought here was a little disappointing and I voiced it. Well wayfair went above and beyond to make that up!! What they did was send me another cage and said to donate the damaged one free of charge and it was delivered 3 days before it was said to arrive. I will be coming back to Wayfair to do my business. Thank you Wayfair, I will make sure all my ferret friends know how you treat your customers!! Sincerely Donnelle Kress
