I got Milo a little home away from home ( a portable cage for him to stay in when we are visiting people) We went and visited a friend for a few days and he was quit at home in his new digs:) It has cloth sides and a metal frame, and folds up flat for transporting. Milo seemed to like it, he even got out and started running on his wheel while the lights were on and I was watching lol he never does that in his cage. He is such a little traveller he is so busy taking in all the wonderful new smells that it doesn't seem to occur to him to be scared :lol: He even met our friends little dog Fifi. Milo hardly even seemed to notice the dog, who cautiously came over to sniff him the decided he was VERY scary and ran off.

It's a Port-A-Crate P2 Indoor/Outdoor Pet Home from Petsmart

I was thinking about getting this one...

...it was a little smaller but I liked how it had more usable storage on it, the one I got just has some small pockets, but all they had was bright pink and I just couldn't bring myself to buy it :lol: Plus the one I got seemed like it was a little more durable and might become a hand-me-down for other pets one day :)

How long do you think he'd be comfy in that cage? For work I'm going to be sometimes traveling for a month or two at a time and am looking for something to house Sylvie in.

It depends on how much space she is used to. I'm sure these come in bigger sizes, but the one I have is just big enough for his wheel, food and water dishes and a folded fleece blanket to hide in. Milo seemed pretty comfortable with it though (I'm pretty sure all he ever does in his cage is sleep poop and run on his wheel anyways lol). If your taking her out for play and exercise each night I'm sure this would be just fine. My only concern would be heating, since this is made of cloth I have no idea if it would be safe around a heat lamp.

With one of those portable pens you'd have to use a heating pad. I wouldn't risk a heat emitter around it.

If you want more floor space lay it on it's side. I have one similar and when laid on it's side it provides half again as much floor space.

That is a fantastic portable home :D I must get one immediately
I noticed on the first link that it comes in 5 different sizes, what size did you get funkybee?

Also, LizardGirl, what size Sport Pet crate did you get?

Thanks!

I got the medium size from Walmart, it was about $16 on sale.

Here's the thread to it, if you want. :)
