Lrg. X 3-Level Wrought Iron
First of all, I do really like my Tall Sturdy cage, and it's not even a year old yet. I however find it intrusive in my new small space. I would like to keep it in storage but downgrade slightly to the size the cage above due to several reasons:
1)As stated, the size is intrusive in my small space. I have to keep it by the door, it's the only place I can fit it and be able to pull out drop pan to clean daily. However it sticks out close to the door and as I pass I sometimes slightly bump it with my elbow, between that and the sudden motion this has startled my babies. They may grow accustom to it and most of the time this setup seems to work for the most part.
2)I've found this cage harder to clean thoroughly the same as I did the Madagascar cage. I can manage reaching in and getting to the farthermost corners, but it's very uncomfortable and awkward, I feel I'm not getting it wiped down as well as other areas of the cage except when doing the "full" cleaning every few months.
3) The cage in above link is slightly smaller, it's not as deep so it would not stick out into the room as much and not startle my babies at times. And, I should be able to reach the back corners easily as it is less wide by a bit as well as not as deep. I know this will give them a slightly smaller space, but still I feel more than minimum for a trio.
I will not be able to purchase this cage until after I gain employment, which hopefully will be very soon. So I have time to really consider opinions on this change.
So please, everyone, tell me what you think, is it a bad idea to downsize slightly for reasons stated?
What is your opinions of this particular cage?
Any experience or knowledge is greatly appreciated.
