Sorry my videoing is shocking and the room is always so dark so apologies for that.
So, I’ve got a Plaza 140 on the left then attached to it (lots of cable ties to make it sturdier) is the main part of the Plaza 160.
In my mind I thought both cages had the main part was 100 cm while the separate add ons were 40 cm and 60cm.
However the main part of the 160 is actually 120 cm. which makes it 180!

So I ran out of space and couldn’t add the final bit on (60cm) but it’s ok.


So why do they call it the 160 when it’s 180?

Have you kept up!? 😂

So you have two Plaza cages
One is called the 140
One is called the 160

But! The 160 ends up being 180- it comes in two parts , a 120cm part and an optional 60 cm add on.

So it should be called the 180!

I think the add on to the 120 part you can use as a carrier so mayb thats why

I should have read the description better as I thought I’d end up with two 100 parts plus a 60 plus a 40.
I’ve not been able to add the 60 bit as run out of room 😂

Are you sure it doesnt come as 140 with a 20 add on? And if you order a 140 its comes without the add on as a 140?

Ok! 😂

I bought two cages- the 160 and the 140
Both cages come in two parts
The 140 comes in one 100cm and a 40cm bit =140

The 160 comes in one 120cm and a 40 cm bit = 160

BUT!! Initially I thought both main parts would be 100cm and so the add ons would be a 40 cm bit and a 60 cm bit... sooooooo with this in mind I then found out that the main part of the 160 is NOT 100cm but actually 120cm and still thinking that it’s add on was 60 made me think the whole cage would end up 180 cm

Now I realise that both add on bits are only 40 cm each so the cages are as thus
140 = 100 cm plus 40cm add on
160 = 120 cm plus 40cm add on

😂😂 it’s not my best subject either
The moral here is before you buy a cage read exactly what the dimensions are and don’t assume anything!
