I have put this in rabbit chat as is with regards to rabbit cages, but the cage is actually going to be used for some older rats. I am looking for one around the size of a Nero 4 but only really want to spend around 40. I would prefer a top opening and not one where the whole front opens, I would also like coated bars as opposed to plain metal.

Any ideas?

Only the really cheap ones are top opening these days as the companies have listened to the customers

Imac are cheap but the quality is awful - and the door in the top is too small to reach into it very easily - I hate my only imac with a passion! I like those nero ones though, and marchioro are good, much bigger, but similar price - worth the extra 20 though in my opinion, having struggled with a cheap cage.

Hi

If you have the space then a Dog pen is ideal as they are very spacious. I have found these to be more spacious than the standard indoor bunny hutch you see in pet stores.

Try looking on ebay. I've got an imac (4'x2') but it's got a large (about 2') door at the front and the same on top that I picked up for 50. Great for rats, I put a shelf each end for those that can hop a bit still.

This is probably a useless link as its no doubt miles away, but maybe other places sell second hand ones.....:?

Like Mandy said zooplus are good, they sell the Ferplast 140 Rabbit cage. That's where I got mine, it's a bit more than you wanted to pay 59.99 but it's well worth it because it's soo big! Zooplus are the cheapest, most places sell these for 100+ :shock:

Personally I think that anything less than 120cm is too small, unless the cage is always open and only being used as a "base"

EDIT: Oh sorry.... I just read your post again and it's for rats!!! :lol: So forget what I said, I'm sure the smaller ones would be fine for ratties!

Well I erm went to pets at home and went a teeny tiny bit over my 40 budget and bought the nero 4 at *cough 70 cough cough*:oops:

i have been looking at it on all the websites and I think no matter what i got I would have always compared it to that so I went with my heart not my budget:D It's a wee bit big though:shock: had to put the seats down and tak the top apart to close the boot!
