Rated 4 out of 5 by Kortskritters Excellent Play pen
I bought this item 6yrs ago and love it! Every now and then I order extension panels to make it bigger and my ferrets love it. I have it set up in a spare room, and I put my ferret nation cage inside of the play pen with the cage door open so they have the option of playing in the pen or hanging out in their cage. Most of the time they play in the pen. I have only had one ferret escape from it in the past 6yrs and that was because of a toy that was next to the side of the pen that was tall enough to give them leverage to climb over the top. As long as you use low toys or keep tall toys away from the border the pen works great. Best ferret play pen out there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ashley Works perfectly!
I have had this for about 6 months now for my 3 ferrets. 1 jumper. 1 little girl. 1 big fatty.
So far, I have not had any escapes except when I didn't assemble it correctly.
I can leave them in this for an hour and leave the room and feel perfectly safe. It's made my life alot easier, and my ferrets don't mind being in it at all.
The price is really good here too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Melissa I don't know why you all are having problems
my ferrets do just great in this they love it to. they can't climb the bars you must have some acrobats for ferrets. they might be board so try changing things to do in the playpen ferrets do get board

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tabitha Did not really work.
I purchased this item thinking that it would keep the ferrets in, however, I was wrong. Both of my ferrets figured out how to climb up the bars using the horizontal bar and get out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SirFrisco Playpen MAT!!!
This is just the MAT/COVER, NOT the entire playpen. From reading the other reviews and not paying good attention, I didn't realize this was just the mat until I received it in the mail.

I too had my ferret escape from the playpen. I solved this problem by attaching 18 inches of plastic mesh (3/4 inch diamond) with small zip ties around the outside bottom of the entire pen. I can still disassemble and move it around. She hasn't escaped since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VCastro Fantastic for guinea pigs, too
I bought the large, 11-panel version and one mat earlier but just found this site with the expansion panels and ordered that and another mat (wash one/"wear" one?).
Better price here than I paid elsewhere for the pen and first cover.
The 5 cavies have a huge cage but still love their floor time and with the two giant cats we have, this is almost like having one whole room to run safely in.
I figure the cats could clear the top if they were motivated enough but mostly they just sit outside the playpen and stare at the piggies inside.
The guinea pigs love it so much I put up a YouTube video of them playing in it. They are really going to love having an extra 3 panels!

I have a lot of fuzzies, as any family with more than 1, some are climbers. Forget this for holding them. I also have one who is a jumper. Clearing top with out missing a beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JEN WARNING!
THOUGH I really like this cage for my 6 ferrets. 2 have learned to climb out even with the red cover velcrowed on top. (they can squeeze through tiny openings) so 2 roam the house wile the others play nicley in the pen... the warning comes with putting this outside....all my ferrets started digging in the grass and before i knew it they were getting out!!!! LUCK I WAS THERE TO CATCH THEM!anywaysplease do not put them in this pen outside on grass they will dig their way out and keep a close eye on them...

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kathryn My Ferret can escape
One of my ferrets can jump right up and pull himself over the top. I bought another mat for a cover and he learned how to unlatch it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jamie Bought for ferrtes, ended up using for dog
I bought this for my two ferrets, thinking that it would be great for them inside and out... BUT they sure showed me... They were able to get out of the cage by squeezing out between the vertical wires!!! So I didn't dare try it outside which is what I originally bought it for! I think it would be much better if they put more or the horizontal wires around it so they wouldn't be able to get out. So I ended up using it for my 4lb dog when I work, I love it for her But not the ferrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Caela Great Product :]
It helped to let my ferret play outside. It lets them get some fresh air and to be able to experience more then just te inside of your home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barb GREAT! Puppy Pens
We bought the first for our 2 Lhasa puppies to protect them when we sleep. They stayed in these till potty trained. No mess on our floors. Now we have 4 dogs, the 2 small Yorkies stay in these. This is the best place on the web to buy these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amanda I love it!!!
I just recently moved into a trailer home that has too many little ins and outs for my ferrets to run around in, so this is a god send! They aren't quite used to it (they're used to having the whole apartment), but none of them can get out of it; not even my huge baby. I would recommend this to anyone!

When I went to NC to visit family. I had to take my ferrets with me. My cousin didn't want them in the house, so I bought the playpen and a mat and cover. The cover kept them from climbing out, and the mat kept them from the grass, (one has grass allergies) and fleas. They loved it!!!
