Thanks Kirsty, I looked high and low for it.. We needed to get a new one, because one of the metal bars on the old one broke, and Jimmy managed to escape through the inch gap.... On Friday night we were watching TV and Jimmy came into the living room and was running around for ages, we couldnt work out how he got out at first..

aaaaawwwww i bet he had some fun and now has some stories to tell the girls of his bravery I know what you mean about cages, took me ages to find a shop that sold chinchilla cages the first time i wanted one so i went back to him for my second and he had a sale on so got another big one for cost price and yesterday I was passing by so went in and brought another cage the size down from my two big cages as they are going really cheap, over half retail price anywhere else and cages always come in handy so got another. The boyfriend groaned but my babies come first Although i'm thinking of adding it onto top of Basil and Ruperts cage for extra space

Awsome cage! I assume degu's don't chew everything in sight like chinchillas? (I know nothing about degu's so forgive my ignorance ) Anyway, they certainly look spoiled rotten

Thanks Mandie! Unfortunately they do chew anything, especially plastic.. I have restricted this to just the 3 shelves in the cage, the rest is metal and wood.. And yes they are spoilt!!!!

Beautiful cage! They definitely have lots of fun toys to play with. I couldn't find any non-plastic chinchilla cages around here, so I went to a little place not far that's run by a guy who sells cages that he makes himself. We wound up buying one that he designed with a sugar glider in mind. It's plenty tall/big enough, and not having a ladder to get from the second floor to the third doesn't stop them at all. They just climb up the walls.

Looks a lovely cage though My big cage cost 50 (which everywhere else is 90) and the smaller one was 28 (which in my local petshop is 79) so i think i did well. And they last a lifetime as my other big cage is 6 years old and still looks brand new (well apart from where Basils chewed the floor bars a little ) only thing is i'm tempted to fill it

I know thats why i got another or so i keep telling people but large cages are hard to find around where i live so buy in bulk is the key plus with what i've saved i've been able to buy my babies lots of new toys for them all
