Thought this might be of interest for those of you who have the kind of small furries that like to sprint and climb Smiley

I made this for my chinchillas out of planks and flowerpots - it means I can reconfigure their cage constantly without the faff of removing and reattaching permanent shelves. I bring it out into the kitchen when they're having exercise time too.

The planks are bolted into small bits of wood inside the flowerpots, for stability (see pics). I wouldn't recommend stacking it more than two levels high but as long as you stick the that, it's very sturdy.













Now I just need to make twelvety more, so I can create huge labyrinths :lol:

That looks like great fun for chinchillas! 

We looked after my friends chinchillas for a little while and I couldn't believe quite how good at jumping they were.  By comparison we have guinea pigs who are super lazy!!!  Smiley
