Hi, I have three PDs and they are extremely destructive
. They have destroyed every cage I have put them in and are currently in a ferret nation single level cage with no shelf until I can finish building their homemade cage. The homemade cage will be four levels each with a footprint of 36"x18" and each level will be connected by drainage pipe so there will be no ledges.
The problem I am having is finding a water bottle
that they can not destroy or knock off the cage. The glass bottles they cannot chew but they knock them off the cage and break them. I have used metal wire and they chew that right off the cage. I am using the flat bac water bottles but they can chew through the bottle, and they leak.
Any suggestions? The youngest one I got as a pup from someone who is allergic to hay. The older two I got as rescues from my vet so they don't do well with handling and out of cage time. They like to be scratched, but only while inside the cage. The younger one gets out of the cage daily to run around my room. I have exercise wheels, pipe for them to run through, and lots of stuff for them to chew on, and I work daily with the two older PDs on handling. I am hoping once in the bigger cage they will be less destructive....
