Default Ferret Nation Ferret Habitat - Model 143 *Add-On*

i see that there are many detailed posts on FN. however, i am wondering if it'd be a good idea for me to purchase *just* this add-on and use it as a standalone cage: http://www.mightypets.com/product.asp?3=2004

the reason is that we keep Sweetie's current cage on a long drawer/chest and we'd really have no use for the full FN.

what do people think? also, what is the price just for the add-on? is it really a whopping $147?

If the ferret nation is only $129, that is absolutely ridiculous that the add-on is more. I would shop around and see if you can find it for cheaper, if you can then sure you can just order the add-on.

I think what Larry is saying though is that if you have to pay MORE for the add-on, just get the whole thing. I'm not 100% sure on this, but I'm guessing you can take it apart, and just use the top? Then you'll have an extra bottom in case you ever decide to get another hedgie. And you're paying less anyways, so why not get more?

A 143 cannot be a stand alone cage. It wouldn't have a bottom.

OK, let me reword that as someone pointed out that "technically" I'm misspeaking.

The 143 comes with 4 sides, a pan and a wire floor with a cut out. You remove the top of the 142/141 and insert the before mentioned items... and then put the top back on....

So technically you would have a floor with a cut out, but no top of the cage. It really is not meant to be a stand alone item.
