I was'nt going to go that big really, but it was hard to find a large cage with the right bar spacing, and yet be a nice big one. Did some furniture shifting today, to accomodate it. Now i have to fill it Im off to see my inlaws Sunday, so hopefully ill be allowed to chop the apple tree. I do hate those bottom grills though, I will put it up, and use one side. Let Ziggy investigate it by herself, and see if she wants to use it. Shes a nosey girlie, and not fearfull, so i think shes going to like the space. Im sure if i could get a filing cabinet in it, she would be straight in! she was in mine today.
