The size of this cage doesn’t meet the required size in terms of the length (L30xW18Xh20). However, the height of this cage can compensate for that since it is double the required dimension.

When purchasing this cage, you will have an option to choose between two sizes, 25 x 17 x 36.5'' and 25.2 x 16.9 x 51.6’. It is durable and can be used for a long time because of the high quality steel wires that is powder-coated to avoid corrosion.

It also comes with a water bottle and food bowl so you won’t have to make an extra purchase anymore. The height of this cage is pretty good for a ferret. However, the length and width doesn’t meet the recommended size (at least 30x18x20). So, the maximum number of ferrets that you can put here is one.

It is also important to note that the pull-out tray is very helpful in keeping your pets clean. The wire over the tray can also be pulled-out.

Kaytee Complete Ferret Kit

Summary:

This cage comes with a few accessories for your ferret like food bowl, water bottle, Kaytee Fiesta ferret food and Clean & Cozy bedding. It is available in one size and one color only. The ramps and platforms are made of plastic. This cage can be assembled easily without the need for tools.

It is recommended that you bathe your ferret not more than once a month. With this cage not having a separate tray for urine/stool, you might have to bathe your ferret more frequently.

The only accessory that can be placed inside is a hammock. Since the base floor is pretty much the litter box as well, it is impossible to put in more accessory for the entertainment of your pet.

The size of this cage is 30 x 18 x 29. Although it is perfect for the recommended size (30x18x20), a bigger cage is still better. There are better cages available close to the price of this one.

This cage is pretty much basic. It comes with a platform and ramp made with plastic. There is a small rooftop door which makes it easier for you to get your pet without having to open a large door and risk an escape. This cage is available in one size only.

This cage may even be small for just one ferret and the space of the bars (⅞ inch) may be a little big for smaller pets.

In addition, if you get this cage you should line the bottom with solid material, otherwise your ferret may hurt its feet.

Homey Pet 3 Tiers Chinchilla Hamster Rat Ferret Cage with Sleeping Platform, Pull Out Tray, Urine Guard and Lockable Casters, Brown, L26 x W17 x H38

Summary:

The Homey Pet-3 cage come in three colours: brown, pink and blue. You have an option to purchase a 1-tier or 3-tier cage.
The platforms, ramps and pull-out tray are made of plastic while the rest of the cage is made of wire that is painted with material free from lead to ensure the safety of you and your pet. It is also covered with non-hazardous powder-coating to ensure that your cage will not rust in a short period of time.

The standard size good for a ferret is at least L30xW18xH20. Given the size of the 1-tier cage, the 1-tier cage (L26"xW18"xH21"), the maximum number of ferrets that you can house here is one and the space is limited for other accessories and leg room. However, the 3 tier cage is quite bigger (L26"x W17"x H38") and I would say that it is good for one ferret with further room for other stuff.

Key Features

L26"x W18"x H21 or L26"x W17"x H38"

Lockable wheels

Completely secured urine tray

Materials used are non-hazardous and lead-free to ensure safety of you and your pet

Pros

Transportable and the wheels have locks/brakes to keep the cage steady

Keeps your place clean due to the secured pull-out tray

Cons

Can be chewed and scratched because of the plastic material used

Due to the small size of the door, cleaning can be challenging

The holes on the bottom base are quite big. Small animals might get their feet stuck or injured

The simple lock system makes it easy for your pet to get out and escape. Can be fixed with wiring

With the shallow pull-out tray, urine or other mess can spill when you try to pull the tray out
