I was thinking about re-doing it for a while. Was thinking about it for my break before school starts again. I got sick of the way it was. One thing lead to another and I totally re-vamped it!! :D I didn't mean to but I did buy the appropriate materials yesterday...:rolleyes: Without further ado...








So the main changes were: I took out the old top level and put it on the other side, made it bigger. And with the top of the old side I have a spot for my stuffed animals!! They don't get in the way now, her stuff is on the side with the new level. It's stronger and sturdier than ever. She's been using the cat scratch thing like a fiend :rolleyes: Chewing on it and running up and down it. I'm happy with the result. It cost me no more than replacement cable ties, hook-n-stick ties (velcro), and NIC left over from her babysitter cage at xmas. :yes: I found Akina's old fleece blanket and that's in the wash now.

Very nice! I'm hoping to do something like this eventually but I only have very limited space, and no materials to make it at the moment. I may have to rearrange some furniure to hopefully make some more space that is also accessible to me. But yeah this looks great :)

Thanks! The beauty of diy is that you can fit them to any space!! I'm after playing with NIC for 4 houses now (one house I moved them twice). But yes, I would love to see your work when you get it done :) All of my NIC came from Wal Mart in multiple trips, each priced at about 15-20$ for 15 squares. My first pen used up 2 packs of the squares and 1 pack of cable ties. So probably only cost me 41$ :D WAY cheaper and better than any commoercial cage you'll find.

:) litter box habits- I can't even remember training Kaysh. I know it was easier to pick up all her poops and put them in the litter box rather than throw them out. I couldn't hold her at the time (tenacious terror) so I couldn't pick her up and place her in the litter :D Some people can do that though when they learn how to tell when a bunny's about to pee

Neat!! I've seen setups like this before with the squares for guinea pigs. It never even occured to me to do this for bunnies! How long did it take to build initially?

o_O back when I moved in (aug '10) I just built this from the floor up with no real plan. (actually that's how I did this too, along with life in general) Maybe both times it took an hour-2 hours. But that's because I'm used to putting these up by myself, with help it could have been half the time. Matt would have helped but he went to the store for supper:p

I put Hamm's cage together myself and I'd never used power tools so it took me a good four hours of blood, sweat and tears...

Wow, that cage is brilliant! If I ever have an empty closet I know exactly what I'm turning it into! Can you give the dimensions (in NIC panels)? It looks super huge but I know Hamm's cage looked bigger on the website.... I don't think it's big enough but that'll have to wait until I've moved out.

Probably. She definitely loves the new top level. I put her food and water up there. What she's been doing is making me slave and pick up her cat ramp because every single time I do she pulls it and it drops back down to the floor -_- I know she is managing to jump without it to go to the litter (she left evidence) but she still likes the ramp to be there. . My, what slaves we become to them eh? Sheesh.

thanks :D I like your colorful one too!! I only wish I had the floor space for this kind of over nighter cage. For the time being I like that the closet is out of the way (I share a bedroom with my dog, bun, and bf!! :p ) and she can come out whenever she likes. I wouldn't even know where to put a panel cage!! lol Let alone a commercial cage, the rescue is daring me to take a foster ;)
