The Ferret Nation cage itself is constructed of 12-gauge wire, vertical bars with bar spacing of 1″, and a sturdy square frame.

This easy-to-clean cage also features full width opening doors for complete accessibility, plastic trays that are both durable and able to slide in and out of the cage, one-handed duel locking access, casters that allow mobility AND raise the height of the cage, and a storage shelf area underneath. While all those features are important for ferret owners, the ferrets themselves will enjoy the numerous attaching points for accessories, as well as adjustable shelves for different configurations, a place for food that is far away from the litter box, and swing-up locking ramps. Ferrets need hideaways and toys, which makes the attaching points for accessories important. From tubes to hammocks to crinkle bags, ferrets need plenty of places to explore, play, and cuddle. Finally, these bad boys are hefty, as the single cage weighs 55 lbs, while the double cage weighs 93 lbs.
The single Ferret Nation cage with stand measures 36″ L x 25″ W x 38 1/2″ H. It is perfect for new ferret owners or ferret owners with up to two ferrets.

If you need to, there is a ramp between the 2nd and 3rd level that can be raised and latched shut. This allows your ferrets to each have their own living space and play areas.
