hi, i've just been looking at cages for Wilfred so he can stay safely in the shed near the girls-without escaping & getting in with the 4 buxom beauties! i like the look of the ferplast 120-i need side opening ,but i've seen comments that the quality of Ferplast has gone down hill? anyone bought one recently and are you happy with it? thanks.

I bought one a few weeks ago when my piggies were ill and I needed to seperate some. The quality was quite poor compared to the one I bought 4 years ago, I think that was a Savic. The plastic base is thin and bendy, the wire is very thin and awkward to get all the bits facing the right way at once to assemble (hope that makes sense) . Everytime the pig that was in it moved the whole thing rattled and when I tried to open the doors I had to jiggle the door around to get it to open up fully. Saying all that if it's just a tempory cage for emergency use you are getting what you pay for and it's worth it but for a permanent cage I would pay a bit more. I have a Little Friends 160 and that is very solid but again it's 4 years old so they may not be as good now.
