how snowball's living quarters started and how it now looks

started off as a basic puppy play pen.
far too many toys in it with no space to move
carpet underneath
you can also see the pole that holds the sides of the pen together sticking up over the top

added a sheet to the top because he got big enough to jump out
shortly after this i turned the pole holding the pen upside down and put it up through the bottom instead of down through the top.
the bit sticking out could then be folded down leaving no dangerous bits sticking up.

changed the shape from a circle to a rectangle because having it round was wasting lots of space

also started putting sheets and towels underneath

added mesh to the top instead of having a sheet over it
here you can see what i mean about bending the pole over. it is more clearly seen in a picture further down.

changed the flooring from sheets and duvet covers to lino
here you can clearly see the folded over pole. i did this by hand, the metal was thin enough to just bend over with a bit of effort.

I have that puppy pen. It was Biscuits home for many months and then Gingers for a couple post-bond too :)

As a square, its 4x4 so gives 12sq ft, same as a 6x2 hutch but obviously the length isn't as good.

I think you've done alright so far :)

It's a nice little cage isn't it :)
I tried to make it a square, but ended up with 2 panels sticking out, it wouldn't work :lol:

As a rectangle, it's about 6 x 2.5 so it's quite a good size :)
Once bubbles and snowball are bonded, they will have the pen and the dog crate will be attached :)

Aw thanks :)
I quite liked searching through the photos seeing how it started and how it is now. It's changed a lot even though it's the same accomodation.

He was on muesli when I first got him, but now has pellets. He was getting whole bananas and whole carrots as well :lol:
Things sure have improved for mr snowball :)
