Large cages in small rooms

Post by kammi_sparky123 » Mon Jun 13, 2011 7:59 pm

I love my Tom cage, I really do, but for some reason I feel the need to upgrade!
My issue is space... The tom is 50cms deep and I reallllly can't go over that as my room is so narrow, I also don't want one that is like directly on the floor (I have a small dog and would rather his nose was left in one piece :lol: ).
Just curious if anyone can think of anything?
My brother has a Tom he is getting rid of soonish, so could make a tom tower, but I would guess that would be a paaaaaaaain to clean!
I don't realllly want the cage to take over my room, but don't mind something slightly larger.
Need bar spacing small enough for babies, I prefer the ones with the deep base for finacard, and needs good access :)
Any ideas? :lol:

There's a thread here about tall cages with small footprints if that would help :D

I used to have a tall chinchilla, and went back to the tom as I wasn't a fan of it - my issue is it needs to be just under 80cms really as that is the gap between my open door and the radiator (stupid radiator haha)

A tom tower would be fine to clean I think - depends on the modding you do based on how much you're likely to want to use them both seperately again. SargentEllie has one I think.

Hmm, I do love Tom cages..... stability may be a worry though! Would have to think about it... but that may work

a tall aviary was going to be my suggestion XD So long as you think about stability while planning how you will mod it, I wouldn't have thought it would be that big an issue.
