I chose a ferret nation cage for Smoky, and I love it!
The only problem was the leg started breaking. It wasn’t sturdy anymore and the leg was weak and wiggly.
We were all worried for his cage because it is very expensive. But my dad went to the hardware store and bought a metal rod in a right angle and some round, metal strips.
I hope this helps! But I hope more that your chinchilla’s cage isn’t breaking. Tell your chinchillas that Smoky says hi, please! 😉
