Question by Cari: Would female rats or young rats beable to escape a ferret nation cage?
I got some extra money and decided to buy some rats and a great cage for them. I saw a ferret nation cage and really like the setup of it. Do yoou think female rats would get out of this?
Cage: 36”L x 25”W x 62 1/2”H
Mesh: 1”W x 5 5/8”H
Cage material: 12 gauge wire, 15mm square tube
Ramps: 18 5/8″L x 5 1/2″W
Ramp spacing: 1/2″
Shelves: 17″L x 22 7/8″W
Pans: 34 5/8″L x 22 7/8″W
Openings in floor: 8 7/8″L x 5 3/4″W
If you think it wont work, could you recommend another cage like it in the same price range?
If it will work, how many rats could it hold comfortably?

Midwest makes a Critter Nation as well. http://www.ferret.com/item/critter-nation-small-animal-cage-double-unit/650232/
Read the info at the bottom and you will see it is more suitable for rats and such. Very similar to the Ferret Nation, just more small animal friendly!
I love ferret.com for all my ferret stuff, and they carry the Critter Nation. They are generally cheaper than anywhere else I have found.
Hope this helps and good luck!
