really great quality hutch, lots of space for my bunny and easy cleaning as the trays come out, one downside of the manufacture is the tiny door on the bottom, meaning theres no way of taking the litter tray out without taking out the top tray, other than that its really great hutch
Having searched the internet for this Furplast hutch, Zooplus came back the cheapest. I emailed to check stock and had a reply quickly back confirming it was ok to place the order. Two parcels came the same day, one with the plastic trays and one with the hutch to assemble.
Other reviews mentioned it was hard to put together but a little more patience and thought needed as opposed to a simple Ikea build. Just measure and double check that you are putting the correct screws in the right places.
Lovely item but could do with a couple improvements
I ordered this for my two guinea pigs and received delivery quickly, in great condition. The home is lovely but could be amazing if it had a much larger opening at the bottom layer rather than a tiny one. I created a coroplast insert for the top layer to enable the use of fleece and easy changing/cleaning then I use puppy pads underneath on both layers.
Brought this big cage for my 2 female guinea pigs, wasn't happy on size pets at home was advising to get and after some research come across this, wasn't disappointed and the price was reasonable too.
I have fleeced the bottom section for them with toys etc and upstairs is where they sleep and eat. Overall couldn't be happier with this buy, and they are happy too. 🐭
The parcel arrived in two separate parcels but on the same day. This item is very big! I brought this item for my two Guinea Pigs (boys) whom needed more space, I was not disappointed, however it would have been nicer if the bottom section were a little deeper in height, the top part is really deep in height but the bottom not so much and makes it very dark. The shallow tray at the bottom does make a mess with sawdust, be prepared to hoover a lot. This is a very attractive cage & am very happy.
good quality cage for my super big rabbit;) if you have big big rabbit its the best option ;) my rabbit like to eat cage but just corners , stairs ;) The downside sliding door opening is pretty small and you do need to get your arm right in there in order to change food or pick up your pets. and my rabbit litter tray downstairs so i need to take upper plastic tray to take it out .. price is good, in my living room the cage looks very nice better than plastic cage. BUT never choose yodel delivery option!!! i was at home 3 days they never show up no card left just in tracking page they said that i wasnt at home!!! omg they are very lazy to bring me my big parcels !
Can't fault this cage it is beautiful my gunieapigs look so happy in their new home ! Would recommend it to anyone It's abit bigger than I expected but so much nicer than just a metal cage especially as it's in my bedroom only thing that annoyed me was the fact it was delivered in two parts and did take longer than the days stated but turned up with no damage from DPD easy to clean out bit of sawdust does flick out of bottom level but not many cages I have known where this doesn't happen overall I'm very pleased with my purchase and excellent value for money ! :)
Delivery quick, main part came and the two plastic trays a couple of days later. The corner of one of the plastic trays was snapped off but once it's inserted in the hutch you can't see it so I didn't bother sending it back. The main hutch arrived in near perfect condition although I think they needed to put it in a stronger box as Yodel had taped the box as it seemed a bit flimsy. It took two of us two hours to put together. Instructions were clear and easy. The 2 guineapigs love it.
Had such a game with Zooplus ordering this product, After I ordered it came very promptly at a great price. However one of the huge side wood pieces had split and the clips which secure the hutch doors were missing. I emailed Zooplus and they sent a replacement which came again with the same missing clips! I couldn't afford to wait another week for a re delivery so we have made our own clips, So annoying! Zooplus were very quick and good customer service but they need to sort out their suppliers!! Despite this the hutch is great, easy assembly, it's a great size for my pigs and they a very very happy in there, it also looks amazing. I don't think this would be sufficient home for a rabbit unless it was just used as a 'bed' because my little guineas fill it! The pigs were a bit hesitant about the stairs but after leaving a tasty kale trail now they love running up and down. They're not so sure about the big built in 'bedroom' so I've had to put in a couple of cosy hide aways in there too. The only problem we find is that it is really hard to catch them in the bottom part of the hutch and the bottom plastic tray is very shallow so they kick out a lot of mess, also the little buggers find the wood very delicious to chew, particularly the stairs.... It also uses a LOT of hay and sawdust but it's definitely worth it to see happy animals.
Fabulous !! So well constructed with so much detail to help build. Would definately recommend this product to all small pet owners - it looks great too ! The only downside it the door at the bottom is tiny to get your arm in to reach for fast pets that don't want to be caught and can make picking them up a trifle awkward. A removable door the full width of the hutch would be ideal (I have a way that works for me as it is now).
When I saw this cage on the website, I was happy that finally designers invented a cage which is nice looking and not a plastic monstrum in the corner of the room. But still there are some dark sides beside the nice look...
First it was really time consuming to build it together. I had a drill, but still it took me finally... two days:)! Well, I did not worked nonstop and I am a lady, but still. You have to be prepared. Building IKEA furniture is fun comparing to that.
Functionality. I have two guinea pigs living in this cage. Pigs were scared to use these stairs (in two months period). To fix it, I made edges and glued some hemp-mats between the stairs.
But the main thing is the narrow edge of the first level. Every morning there is a load of hay, bedding material and raisins on the floor on the half meter radius of the cage. Behind the cage there is a pile of sawdust+hay. My natural oiled oak parquet is partly ruined as pigs managed to pee somehow in spite of the edge between the bars.
And the design... You have to be prepared this cage is massively big. I have big rooms, but still it is a huge wooden block which is nicely white outside, but dark inside (you cannot see animals inside it very well). Next time I would choose Natural Living cage.
But positive things are that I belive pigs have plenty of room there and that is nice. And it is not made from plastic. To improve using it, I have to change type of lining (fleece, mats instead of sawdust) and maybe build some plywood barriers between the narroe edge of the first floor.
I bought this cage for my two guinea pigs, it's great because they have loads of space to run about and don't have to sleep on top of eachother, plus it's really pretty. The downsides however are that it's impossible to catch them from the downstairs as there is only one small door. I use sawdust and it gets kicked out the bottom all the time meaning I've had to make a makeshift barrier, as well as the hay falling out the little trough this means the cage certainly wouldn't be good for a carpeted floor! Cleaning it out is really fiddly as the drawers don't slide out very easily. I'm not sure it's worth the money I paid for it! :(
I bought this cage for my two new Peruvian Guinea Pigs last month. When I used to own piggies years ago, all of the cages were cheap and bad quality, along with the fact there wasn't much space for them to run around in! I was SO glad to find such an attractive & spacious cage nowadays for my two little additions.
It was very complicated to set up & would need two people. It took a good few hours to build, but the end results are definitely worth it! It is super sturdy & made from Nordic Pine which is sourced from sustainable forests.
My piggies love running and popping around the cage & get ever so excited when they go up the ladders - I actually added carpet in the ladder steps for extra grip.
The only downside is the bottom level sliding door opening is pretty small and you do need to get your arm right in there in order to change food or pick up your pets. I would suggest that they change the design slightly regarding this opening as it would make life a lot easier.
Overall though it is a good price & well worth the building time!
I bought this hutch for my two mini lops as I wanted a nice, spacious indoor hutch.
This hutch is perfect, it's a lovely size for them- at just nine weeks my tiny buns are loving having masses of space - at the moment they are too small to see over the wooden frame of the top floor unless they stand up on their hind legs! They've certainly got room to grow in to, but because this hutch is nice and tall - particularly on the top floor, they will still have plenty of space to stand up fully on their hind legs even when fully grown.
The hutch is well designed and easy to clean, the pull out trays are a dream!
It does take a while to build, make sure you have a few good screwdrivers, and some posts of the build process are definitely a two person job.
It's really worth it though, this is a lovely sturdy hutch, so much nicer than the indoor cages you can buy.
As my two buns are so tiny st the moment I have them living upstairs only and have closed off the downstairs with the trapdoor, this works just great for them, and when they are bigger they will have more space to explore!
My only criticism is that for smaller bunnies it is difficult to fit a water bottle to the upper floor where the bunnies are actually able to reach it, plus the bottle provided is way too big whilst mine are just babies. I bought a Ferplast 'sippy water bottle' which fixes in the hutch really securely and is much more suitable for my buns to drink from.
Overall I am thrilled with this hutch, as are my very energetic bunnies!
The best indoor hutch ever! Us and our two dwarf rabbits love it! Easy to clean, only trouble when my rabbits don't want to leave the hutch and let me open the drawers :) they have their hutch open all the time and most of their time they spend inside the hutch anyway, they love their rabbit kingdom!
The cottage looks exceptionally stylish and the trays are very functional. The opening to the bottom level is very small so it would be difficult to get Buster out from this level unless he comes out himself. Only negatives really are that there isnt a place for a water bottle on the 2nd floor as the bars are too for up and the fact that it took ages to put together. Luckily my partner has some patience, but it still took him (with the occasional help of me) about 5 hours!
