No chin needs to be around plastic! They shouldn't have it, that's why they try to tear it up lol ;)
While the Critter Nation is a popular cage for small animals, It does need some upgrades to make it pet-safe.
Our Ferret & Critter Nation Shelf pan enables you to remove the plastic with a robust steel pan with an option of powder-coated colors!
It fits perfectly in the adjustable shelf racks that come with the cage and the smooth surface makes cleaning a breeze!
We use a thick 26ga sheet metal, either galvanized steel or stainless steel.
It measures 21-1/2 deep x 15-5/8 wide and is Handmade here in Austin
If you have a Chinchilla determined to destroy some plastic, This replacement pan will surely stand up to them for a long time.
I have 4 female rats in a double decker critter nation cage. I purchased the full bottom pan and the cutout pan to cut down on them kicking their bedding out. It was amazing!
I’ve been using pillowcases to cover the plastic shelves, but they crawl inside them, chew the plastic shelf, and of course pee. Without bedding to absorb the pee, it gets gross fast.
I finally decided to purchase the shelf pans that match the bottom pans and it’s SO NICE! I’m able to put bedding on the shelves and it has drastically cut down on their smell.
The only thing I wouldn’t mind is having the shelf lip lower where they climb out to go down the ramp (like how the full size cutout shelf is). I understand that can’t happen since the ramps don’t have a set spot.
If you want the best of the best for your pets, get the critter nation cage and these pans to match.
Unprofessional man running this company. I waited almost a month for way overpriced litter trays to fit the Ferret Nation cage. After waiting weeks. I was sent a message that my order was already delivered. After hours on the phone with FedEx, it came to be that the shipper made a mistake labeling and I received the order a week later. There is no customer service phone number. The only communication is through email. I don’t feel this is acceptable when paying nearly $400 for the products. But, it looks like he’s the only one making this product online so, he’s able to put as little effort in customer happiness as he wants. Good product=terrible support.
Great replacement for original shelves. Slippery bottom, had to line it with cardboard under the bedding.
I am so glad I made this purchase. It is easier to clean the cage, the metal stays cool for my babies feets, and it fits perfectly. Great quality!
This pans fit the cage perfectly and I like how durable they are. My chinchillas chew anything plastic so the metal pans are so much better. The sides of the pan also help to reduce bedding from getting out of the cage. Highly recommend!
I ordered the shelf pan replacement in teal. I received my order quickly. It’s great quality from the color to the way it fits and how it cleans up. Great purchase. Hayes approved.
I have several sets of pans from this company and have had several orders as a result. Every time we added a critter nation cage, I ordered a set of pans. Packaging and shipping have always been great. Quality is obviously good since I haven’t replaced any pans yet. They clean easily. I even got an email from the Chinchillas updating me on the time frame. Not one bad thing to say as of yet. Highly recommend.
Great quality! This pan is definately reducing the mess on my floor.
Critter Nation Shelf Pan All Metal Replacement
I desperately needed shelves with high walls, as I'm not sure what my rats do all night, but whatever it is, it involves kicking huge amounts of bedding out and onto the floor. These shelves with their higher walls fit perfectly in the cage, like a glove. No regrets on this purchase, and as far as I can tell, the only vendor selling these. Bravo to Quality Cage Crafters, THANK YOU!
