I’ve been idling contemplating getting a new cage for the ratties for a while. The Savic Freddy 2 Max has been great for them, but as Nine became less mobile, it got harder to elegantly lift her out through its relatively small door. And something with better access would be easier to clean and furnish.
Much reading of forum recommendations and cage specifications, combined with an admission that no, we can’t fit one of the double-height cages under the stairs, led me to the conclusion that I wanted a single Critter Nation for them. Unfortunately, when I was looking earlier this year, they were quite hard to find, and anyone who did have them was charging silly money. I finally found a supplier at a sensible price, but then all the redundancy kerfuffle kicked off, so it got put on hold.
Then, on Friday, Codepope dropped in to our local pet shop and texted me a photo of the single Critter Nation they had on sale for £40 less than the best price I had come across. He even got them to bring it round to us that evening.
So now the girlies have a new home.
