Draenog I would definitely make it bigger if I could but I simply don't have the room :/ Maybe once I'm on my own again during school I can expand!

Melanie G. Thank you!!

Ah, sorry! I wasn't thinking when I read and was reading "here" as forum rather than Europe/your country. I should've read it again!

That's the size cage we have and I think its perfect, both for her in terms of space for her things, and for me in terms of being able to reach things/clean things.

I also used the leftover cubes from the pack to create a little shelf, and have containers for her things, clean fleece & such to keep them put away and the dogs out of it.

Don't worry, it's fine, I might have been unclear!

It's not terribly small and the hedgehog most likely won't be unhappy, it's just that it would be considered too small here and a bigger cage is definitely better. But if you don't have the room there's not much you can do (unless you're creating multiple levels).

My C&C is 2x2, and its very spacious. I have her items that take up space long the edges, so the middle is clear for her to run and play, aside from a few cat toys. I used zip ties, but put 2 connectors on the front for the lid to lean on. With zip ties it is very sturdy. I made the stand from the cubes as well, and I feel like it is very stable.



I have tons more stuff under neath it now, and its still very stable.
My coroplast is 8in high, and when I first put Penny in i used fabric and weaved it through the grids just incase she could squeeze out, but shes never even tried, so I think shes fine, and the coroplast is high enough.

Your cage is so cute! I may use the fabric idea until I know how high he/she can climb or tries to climb!

Thanks everyone for the input
