I (Actually, my mom sort of force changed my mind) changed my mind and I'm going with the FF. My mom said that FN modifications were more work than it was worth, and I don't think she would help or really want me to do it.  :'( Oh well. I like the Feisty Ferret and I only have three rats, so it's enough room. I'm pretty sure I won't have to modify it either. That would stink!

You will be happy with the FF  ;D. You just need to modify it a little by adding in a solid floor (using tiles, chloroplast, plexi-glass, ect), covering the two floors with fleece, and getting some wire storage shelves to zip-tie up in the cage. The extra shelf space really is a must, my rats love hanging out on the extra shelf (you can see it in my pictures).

Updated cage pictures! It looks really "toy-less", but my rats don't show interest in toys. They love to roll around the balls and play with each other, more over toys.


Spartan, Ralphie, and the new dumbo guy's top half:







Leonidas' bottom half. Yes, he is alone...he absolutely refuses to get along with the 12 week old babies or Spartan, who is neutered. Maybe he would get along with a spayed female?:






Enjoy  :BlueDumboSmile:!

Wonderrodent's snake works really well in the Feisty Ferret home. When we had our rats they loved it. We would hide treats in it for them. I may have pictures in my posts. Just do a search for Feisty Ferret homes. We really liked the FF. We only had two boys and it worked out great for us and them.

Do they make FFs with one level? I did a google search, but only seem to be able to find two level cages.

I doubt I'm getting a new cage anytime soon (especially since I'm ratless and not sure when that's changing- hopefully sometime in the *really* near future), but it doesn't hurt to look, right? I really like this cage, although I think it might be a little too wide to fit through my door. I could barely get the 695 through the door (we have a bookshelf in the hallway that blocks half of my door- I hate it).

Does anyone still have the directions for construction lying around that could scan it?

I checked the prevue website, but the layout that they have pulls the javasript link bar up WAY far away from the customer service image, and it's a hover so that's what triggers the javascript to pop up. As soon as I try and get over to the manuals it goes away ;;

so, if anyone could scan theirs in for me that would be amazing! Or, if it's my computer can someone can properly navigate the website to get me the link Id be eternally grateful.

I'd love to post Feisty Ferret cage pics..That is if I had one! Right now I'm (well,rather my rats are) stuck
with a little Martin's cage top on a aquarium.Ugh.You can't exactly decorate an aquarium. And if I put anything in the metal cage-top part,there won't be much room for them.



Where are you located? Check Craigslist for cages...you might see something much better than an aquarium with a topper...

reply to luv-animal's post...

i believe they only make 2-level cages, but you can close off the levels, so you could use one for rats and the other for storage or something :)

Why would you need to get it through the door? It will fit, anyway -- the cage is 20" wide.  But you assemble it, so it will enter your house in a box anyway! :)

Around that -- 21" maybe?  I haven't needed to move the cage at all -- I use fleece on the top floor and the shelves and just remove the fleece, babywipe well, and put on new fleece.  I left off the wire floor and put Carefresh in the tray--I take that out w/ a dustpan, clean the tray, and put in new Carefresh.  Nothing else gets messy!

New pictures of my cage  :).

The trio's top half:






Leonidas' bottom half: It's plain and boring, I know. He won't play with anything, hates braided fleece ropes, and won't accept the trio at all. I am going to look into adopting him a female baby in May/June when we get our house. I'll have Ralphie and Louie neutered by then, so no chance of babies, and that way if he won't accept her either, she can go in with the trio. We'll see. I feel sad for my poor boy now, though. I bet he would love the SP Exotics cage because of all the levels...




Oh, and say "hello" to Brody bunny in the bottom left corner, hehe.







**Now for some cage rambling, lol**

I have decided that I really want an FN. I am debating whether or not to sell this cage (or donate it to a rescue), buy the FN for the trio, then buy a SP Exotics cage for Leonidas. OR....keep this cage for the trio and get Leonidas the SP Exotics cage. Then again, the FF is nice and buying the FN would just be using up money that I can put elsewhere.

I have a while to decide, as my fiance and I don't get a house until May/June and our bedroom right now would be even more cramped with an FN in it  :P.

But now I am really debating whether or not going to PetsMart this week to get Leo the SP Exotics cage. He would just love all the levels....hrrrm. I might as well, I am eventually wanting to buy it for him. I can then later decide on the FN or not.

I personally would just stick to the FF and get the SP cage for Leonidas. You'll save money that you could use to decorate the new SP cage :)

LOL sorry Rodent! Did you see the lameo pics of my boys a while back? If not, search "Cow" and click on the topic "Cow and Squid!!" to see the extremely lame pictures of Cow and Squid.
My FF cage is too lame to post anyway. I suck at sewing so they have like no hammocks except the one yellow one that came with it, and I have an igloo on the top level, a box on the bottom, a water bottle on the bottom level (I'm going to get another one tomorrow), two food dishes on each level, and a litter box on the bottom level.
Anywho, awesome cage undergunfire :) I've always wanted to hang ropes and stuff but then it seems overcrowded. Pictures look fine, but when I'm looking at it in person it just looks like a big mess.
Are the ropes for decoration or do the rats climb on them or something?

Thank you  ;D!


They do try to swing on the fleece ropes, but they don't walk across them or anything. I think they love them in the cage because it makes the cage more "cozier", rather than blank.

Is it possible for the FF to be separated into two different cages like can be done with the FN?  Also, is the top level a wire floor?  These are the things that concern me about purchasing a FF as opposed to a FN.  I love the fact that the FF has smaller bar spacing as I have small girls.  Any opinions?

I just added some new toys and rearranged after a huge cleaning - took the whole thing apart and dumped it in the bath. If I used liners I probably wouldn't have to scrub it down so much all the time but I haven't gotten around to sewing them yet.

Anyway I made a new climbing rope out of some socks, a treat tube, and I hung up a lemonade case for them to play in - that one they don't really seem to like. They have a ton of new toys coming soon anyway.

I'll try to get my liners sewn soon and post photos!

Thanks for putting our stuff back mom!

Liners for this cage is a MUST. Rats should not be allowed to run around on wires that wide...broken legs would be horrible. At least cover the cage floor with a towel or something, until liners are sewn  :).
