If you have a pet rabbit, guinea pig
or other small mammal pets, you`ve probably been looking for a perfect home for your small pet. While there are many small pet cages available in the market, several key criteria need to be considered so you can select the right cage for your pet.
- 1. The interior size of the cage is very important because this is where the flooring will be for your pet. This is also where the bedding litter will be put on. Enough space is needed for your pet to freely move around, as well as for you to designate sections for toys like; a tread mill, a ramp or some other areas your pet can move back and forth on.
- 2. The wire mesh is another criterion to be considered. Unfortunately, not all cages are built to last. Some are quite flimsy. By flimsy it means that the wire mesh is very thin or can easily bend. There are also some wire mesh may look thick but the metal material or alloy used is weak; so it can easily bend. Also avoid wire meshes that are too big because if you have a pet rat for example, you wouldn`t want them to get stuck within the wire mesh. The wire mesh needs to be spaced correctly depending on the pet that you are getting the pet cage for you.
- 3. Ease of cleaning is the third criteria. Any small pet cage must be easy to clean. You have to understand that the small animal cage that you`re getting has to accommodate your pet`s litter. It must be easy for you to disassemble, take out the litter, clean the cage and put it back together. If you pick the wrong cage and it doesn`t have easy maintenance features, it will be time consuming, more hassle for you, and inevitably more unhygienic surroundings for your small pet.
