This is a cage that I made. It is lightweight (10 lbs), and telescopes from 2 ft. high to any height up to approximately 6 ft.. It is 2 ft. wide. As far as I'm aware it is completely safe for gliders also. The best part is it can be made for less than 50 bucks! I've made some changes since this photo was taken, like replacing the wood dowels with some PVC coated stakes. It is free standing, or you can use a Shepards hook to hold it up if you like, or one of those plant hangars that go into your ceiling.

Very Clever!

Can you show photos of the doors?

Where do you place wheels?

I'll try to post a pic of the doors. As for the wheel, I hang it from one of the stakes.

How will you lock the door?
What are you using for the bottom of the cage? - looks like it is sitting on the floor in the photo.

Have your gliders tested the cage yet?

I lock the doors using twist ties, same color as the netting, that way they don't stand out and draw attention.

I house two gliders in this cage.

The bottom of the cage has a part that makes it stand up off the floor a few inches so that prying paws can't reach anything down below. I have the cage setting in a pan I made for another cage I had prior to this one. I included a pic of the interior of the cage bottom also.

very innovative.

On the plant fencing: With all the concerns over cages and wires recently, I would contact the manufacturer and verify that the fencing is safe for animal cages and make it clear it will be used indoors and in close proximity to an animal for long term. Make it clear also that the animal is one that may chew, explore things with their mouths, climbs on the cage ALL the time, and grooms a lot. Better to be safe than sorry.

JillMarie, something I've been mulling over is whether or not to use the plant fencing like an exo-skeleton, i.e. have it on the outside. This would help keep it away from the taste testers better and wouldn't compromise the integrity at all.
