Critter Nation cage

Post by CanadianExport on Mon Oct 17, 2016 10:25 am

I was wondering if anyone has ever modified a critter nation cage to work for mice? I know the bar spacing is too wide and you would need to mesh it, plus creating some kind of pan for substrate at the bottom. I was just wondering anyone has actually ever done it. I know it would also depend on the mice you have and how you set it up as to whether they would be comfortable in something so huge.

I don't know of anyone who has done that. It seems like an awful lot of work for something you don't even know if they will like. I have a critter nation for my chinchillas, and I wouldn't recommend it for mice. That said, if it was something that you were planning on doing anyway, I will tell you that they make Bass pans that are stainless steel with 2" sides all the way around to hold litter for other critters the cages are intended for, so that would solve your problem for holding substrate.

Thanks for the info scaredymouse. I am just exploring ideas as I will not be changing cages for a few months since I will be moving in December.
