I bought a set of 6 C&C cubes at Target, so I could try them out myself and build Inky a playpen. Well, it turns out Inky can escape. He can climb over (majority can) AND squeeze through the 1(or so) inch squares! He did this last night, this morning, and again for me to get a video. I knew he was small (250 grams, trying to gain) but it was crazy!

Here is the video of him squeezing out. I'm really sorry for the crappy quality and general shaky-ness, I had to use my cheapy video camera instead of my regular camera.


I've had problems with his adventures several times, actually, one of them being an escape from the ceiling of a SuperPet cage...

PS: I thought all the squares would be the same size, but only a few of the panels have the small ones, and the rest have large squares! For anyone who might buy that set... I'll post a pic of the box later.

Haha, that won't work either. He is an expert at scaling walls and climbing up even through lids. I could swear he has gecko toes the way he climbs...

I am only using the cubes (now, after realizing his talent) when he is under constant supervision so I can stop him from trying to get through or climbing. I am especially concerned about him squeezing through because I've been trying to get him to gain weight, and if he does, he would likely get stuck halfway. :(

I am being extra, extra careful with them, and he won't ever be left without someone watching, even if he's sleeping.

If you got your cubes at Target did you notice the organizers that were frosted with plastic? These http://www.target.com/Storage-Solutions ... 64940might be a good option to build your playpen with, unless little Inky really is Houdini!
I actually looked for those as well, but my Target didn't have them at the moment. I may buy those in the future and experiment (safely!) with them as well.
