Hi I have been reading about people adding one martin cage onto another and I am curious about this and would like to find out more info on this.

How exactly do you do this. Do you have to order it special as an add on or what?

Is it hard to do?

Also what is the difference with the pull out pan verse the regular drop in one?
Is the pull out better? If it is why?

thanks rhsm

Oooops Sorry I made that sound like adding a Martins cage to another brand . What I meant was adding one Martins to another Martins.
Sorry I didn't make that clearer.
Thanks rhsm

 You don't want to get a slide-out pan. My rats have chewed the pan to smithereens for any cage I've ordered with a slide-out. And it really isn't any better. Pee dribbles down on the outside of the pan, etc. Always go with cages that the cage sits in the pan and that way there is no chance of them chewing the pan.

 there are people who have stacked their cages or linked them up side by side. With a little creativity you could crate quite a cage however it would be even more difficult to lug around to clean.

I have a R680 and an R695 and I wanted to be able to make a RUUD (R699) and I asked Martin's about it and they just sent an extra floor with a ramp.  So, when I want to put them together, all I have to do is take the top off of the 680, put the extra floor back on and then zip tie the 695 on top.  It is a bit of a hassle, but it is not hard at all.
