Chinchilla Mansion - 48" TallQuality Cage Crafters
Not your ordinary chinchilla cage. Our Chinchilla Mansion is made with a chinchillas needs in mind. Wooden shelves, no plastic, and 100% safe for your animal.
Our mansion is 30"w x 24"d x 48"h, and made of sturdy 1" x 1" wire.
The Chinchilla Mansion includes four replaceable, movable solid pine shelves (two 24" and two 30").
It offers a full opening top with a 12" x 14" door on the upper part of the cage, and a large 12" x 18" door below. Both doors are secured with safety trimmed metal door guards.
The bottom of the cage is equipped with a 1-1/2" tall powder-coated slide-out tray. The floor panel below the tray is made of 1/2" x 1/2" wire. When the tray is removed for cleaning our sheet metal flap keeps your chinchilla from escaping.
It’s a great size and not having fixed levels makes it easily customizable. The wire and wood is of great quality and I have no doubt this will last forever and if parts break off, it seems a lot easier to fix than the other cages I’ve bought. I thought the zip ties would be an issue but my chin has not been able to chew them, and normally he chews anything plastic or paper if he can reach it but so far he hasn’t with the zip ties because of where they are placed. Be warned that the pandemic has made production slow way down so you’ll be waiting several months, but it is worth it and these guys are trustworthy and will be honest and up front on all the reasons for the delays.
The cafe itself is easily 5 stars but I have to factor in the time it took to get the cage. The cage finally arrived a little over 5 months after we placed the order. We had some problems with the sliding tray as I think it was warped after shipping but we just bent it a little and now it slides enough to get it in and out of the cage. I would give this cage 5 stars in a heart beat as it’s easy to clean, you can pop the top and both doors to clean and get the chins out but they really need more help fulfilling orders as 5 months is crazy.
The Chinchilla mansion in blue is perfect! The pandemic slowed down my order, but it was worth the wait. My boys love it. It's so big, I'm still ordering more "furniture" for it. I had a Townhouse for about 15 years, so I know it is "quality".
For a long time we always joked that proportionally our chinchilla lived in a bigger house than us. Now we have two boys and we want two mansions that we jerry rig together. We love this cage! It's solid, lots of room for the boys to jump around and easy to clean.
The good: The cage is great and well worth the money for anybody interested. Try it out -- you'll love it! It's solid and roomy. We have no regrets. (Plus, our chins seem to love being able to climb the walls!)
* The cage took nearly 3 months to fulfill
* Communication was sparse during these 3 months (and was largely driven by me reaching out)
* Some of the metal parts and the metal sheets were banged up and bent out of shape (though overall usability of the cage appers to be ok)
* Part of our order (accessories, shelves, treats) still has yet to arrive
The longer version:
I'll preface this by saying that I truly hope these less-awesome parts of this experience are due COVID-19-related stresses.
We happened to order our cage right before the whole COVID-19 lockdowns started to swing into full gear, so I understand that many things got hit hard with delays. With that being said, however, we had some less-than-stellar communication about the whole situation. I found myself having to reach out in order to get any status update for my order.
When our order finally arrived over 2 1/2 months after ordering it, parts of the cage and part of the sheet metal drawer were bent out of shape. It was fairly straightforward to bend the cage portion into a usable shape, but I have been unable to fix the sheet metal portion of the drawer -- it's too warped. It appears to be related to shipping as the box arrived in pretty bad condition with many tears and holes.
We also have yet to receive the remaining portion of this order and it'll hit the 3-month mark this week. (I'm crossing my fingers that it will ship soon, though!)
Despite the long delay, the cage is fabulous. I knew it was a large cage based off of the specifications, but I wasn't prepared for how enormous it was once we got it set up in person.
There is so much room for our chinchillas to hop around and have fun. We would definitely recommend this cage, though hopefully you'll be able to enjoy it sooner than we were able. :)
We'd definitely recommend this cage to anybody looking for a good home for their chinchilla buddies.
No kidding when they call this a Quality Cage, really a step above the rest in terms of quality. I have a lot of the extra accessories to go with this and I think it's really great, I think my Chinchilla's do too! Would definitely recommend buying the 10 inch wheels to go with this. Also seriously wish I had the blue powdercoat version of this that they're selling, looks seriously beautiful from the photos.

My chin loves the new cage. We had to add an extra large shelf as a divider and left room for him to jump up. It was just such a long drop from the upper shelves. Maybe you could add a large middle shelf along with the already included ones! But he LOVES his chin spin. I am so happy I purchased it. He is a couple years old (we think
Our chinchilla Pookie loves his new cage. It’s so well constructed and solid. Took no time at all to put together and the owner gave us tips on how to make the wheel less noisy.
The cage is well made. Very chinchilla friendly. The only problem I have is the top portion of the cage uses zip ties. I would recommend a different type of item to hold the cage together. A clip maybe? Other than that my chinchillas love their cage!
