Default Re: Does the platform feet have to stand on the base of the cage?

I have niteangel bendy bridges where there’s no gaps and ladder for her to climb but I know she could also choose to climb over them.

egg cartons would make good barriers, also as you say bridges like the niteangels ones don't have gaps, the bridges made with dowels lay flatter together leaving no gaps.

When I've had different levels of substrate, I just have a slope usually, rather than an actual divider. Other times I've used a large cork log (they're about 15cm tall). So on one side the base of the log is on the substrate, on the other side the substrate is up to the height of the log.

Thanks for all the advice. I’m gonna put the cage together Saturday and will post a photo to see if it’s suitable.

Looking forward to seeing that. I'm sure it will be suitable! It helps to get feedback though and tips of what might be added etc sometimes or suggestions how to tweak something if something isn't working.

I ended up not making a fence in area. I’ve took a photo. It’s not very good. I can take a better one after she’s settled in.

Um, how to I upload a photo to here?

The file was too big so uploaded to IMGUR instead.
