I am hoping it doesn't make anyone uncomfortable when I mention this(I don't normally think anything about it and I make jokes sometimes ex specially if it is a perfect situation for it)  Anyway The first one I needed a bit of help from my son, but the second one was in better shape and I put it together myself and I only have one arm.  So I think it's pretty darn easy for someone to put together.

It came! It came!

And with the help of a 4 1/2yr old we put it together! One door is a little out of alignment and I did need a hammer, but other than that it was no problem, no damage.

Finished!

Wow, it looks great!! Hopefully, I'll be able to get mine into my room that quick... though I doubt it. I'm going to have to move a shelf, my current cage, the stand for my current cage, and clean up some.  :BlueDumboBigEyes:

I ordered mine from Ferret.com because they were having a 10% off sale, and I haven't gotten a shipping notice yet. It's supposed to ship directly from Midwest too. *goes to Ferret.com to check order status*

Edit: Woot! It made it to Jax, so if UPS is still delivering today, I might still get it!  :BlueDumboSmile: Either that, or tomorrow! Grr, and I have an exam tomorrow so I'm gonna be at school til 6 pm, instead of noon like usual.

I was thinking of you & hoping yours would come today too! Well, even if you have to wait til after 6pm tomorrow, it's SO worth the wait.

Um, and I still have some re-arranging to do in the office - the old cage still needs to be cleaned and moved into the garage, hopefully before Bob gets home  ;)

I had all this morning waiting, so I pulled out the old cage, vacuumed & cleaned real good in that spot, organized, etc.

But now I'm having too much fun watching them run around having fun I don't wanna clean the old cage!!

Geez, undergunfire, why didn't you use more space in there? It's sparsely furnished!    :yelcutelaugh:
Owned by three kittehs (Raja, Adrian and Audrina), and two pups (Sunny and John). Currently on a break from ratties.

undergunfire: I'm sorry if you've been asked this question a million times before, but what are you using in the lefthand corner as that extra little shelf, where did you get it, and how are you attaching it? Also, is the entire thing wire or does it have a solid bottom?

Undergunfire - don't you LOVE those cheap hanging jingly balls from walmart? 76 cents! Except they break easily xD I just cut the string that holds them together so I have separate jingly balls :)
I am ratless. Someday I will own rats again.

Rats across the Bridge: Penny, Heidi, Jerry, Teddy, Lucy, Sophie, Silhouette, Jupiter, Ozy, and Rorschach. I love you all and hope we will someday meet again. :heart:

I moved mine in as soon as it was ready!  They loved it!  New pics today! (Actually from a couple days ago but server was down :()



Oh yay! Those are the liners and matching hammock I made for you! :) I was just browsing this thread to help tip me over the edge to order my CN for the girls in my rescue tonight, and I think that did it! :) I hope you are enjoying them!

I do like them! Thanks.  The tray cover could have been about maybe an inch longer though.  I had to stretch it out a little and hold it with a binder clip to fit on.  I do love the pillowcase style though.  The others I have either clip on or tuck under, like this cover better!  They came out great though! Thanks again!!!!

Good I am glad you like them! Darn, I will definitely add another inch next time then. I held it up to my FN and it looked right. I wonder if the CN is just a touch bigger? Glad you like the style! :)

Thanks, guys  ;D! My girlies love their cage packed...it just gives them lots of things to check out  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:.


Schrute...the shelf thingy in the corner is this basket off of a deep fryer that I found at a thrift store. All the pieces were priced separately, so I picked up this "shelf" for like $1. I attached it with little black zip ties. The entire thing is wire, but I just lay down a piece of doubled-up fleece in there and it works well. I like it because the metal power coating matches the color of the CN. I wish I had more! I can be on the look out at thrift stores for another one for you, if you'd like! Actually, I might even consider letting it go to you once I buy another CN and attached it to this CN, like I plan. If I let it go, would you like it?

Thats a good idea I keep trying to find a way to keep the liners attached and the girls keep getting under them.  These last ones I made I used hooks, I didn't figure this out till I went to put the boys in but I used the zip ties I had and put them @ the bottom to hook the hooks on.  I didn't do this with the girls and the hooks slide all over.  A pillowcase would work too and maybe just put a brick @ the open end.

I just ordered mine!!! EEEE... The rescue girls are going to be so excited! And mommy (me!) is so excited because this will very likely shave an hour off cleaning time! (No small thing when it takes 1hr 40 mins -2 and 1/2 hours to clean everyone! And that's not even including my kids!) The martins have been hell to clean during the winter without being able to hose them off!

Sounds like me!  Think we followed about the same path of cages recently!

You guys are KILLING me here. I SO should not spend money on one, but I want one so bad! I only have 2 girls, so it would be logical to get the single, but I feel like it'd be too low and that would bother me but I cannot justify spending $140 on the single, let alone $240 on the double! AH. Now... how to make some extra money... or get someone to buy it for me lol.
