My brother and I built a cage for Sam I Am and, when we're past the quarintine and intro phase, Baz and Deo.






It's Sammy approved!!!










Please note the two untouched yogies in the food dish. Sam prefers broccoli.

if at all possible, try to get something on the wood doors so its chew proof.

the cage i just built had a gap between the wood and mesh at the door, and i came home finding my Toodles chewing the heck out of it. if i had been a few hours later, she might have gotten out. i re-meshed that particular part of the frame, and its ok now..

but yeah, i think you need to fix up the door portions for that reason, exposed wood will be chewed, and a door is not a good place for chewing as it will losen up the mesh so they can excape

Rat_Ratscal - The screening is 1/2" galvanized steel hardware cloth.

bubsybob - I'm not too worried about the doors being chewed through at the moment because Sam has no interest in them, he prefers to chew on the tennis ball. He also has on interest in escaping his cage, he'll only leave if I'm holding him. I'll need to do something about them once it's time for Baz and Deo to enter the cage because Deo is an aspiring escape artist.

xxpinkfunxx - I wouldn't have done nearly as good a job had my brother not helped me, he builds houses for a living. Sam wasn't litter boxed trained when I put him in it but he seems to want to keep his new cage clean.

Not mine, it's solid. It came from a fish store and is meant for aquariums.

I'm not really sure the brand name, my brother's the one that actually found it. I think maybe Aquatic Gardens possibly. Sorry I can't be sure, I got it a while ago.

Look like those glass aquarium pebbles, I think.

I call them flat marbles.(Not sure what the actual name is.) It's the play/grooming water dish

Its blue and the consistency of jello. Its used to provide water (there are some that aren't blue and contain vitamins and food) to crickets. I personally hate touching the stuff.
