Rated 5 out of 5 by CatRescueLady Kitten Playpen
A well-made product at a reasonable price. The playpen unfortumnately arrived without the fasteners to connect the casters to the plastic base, but the maker sent replacement bolts and nuts promptly.
It was a bit awkward to unfold and set up for one person to do and would be much easier to set up if two people can help. The instructions aren't great, but the concept is pretty simple and the pictures are pretty clear.
This playpen was immediately put to use to house 6 kittens and is working out beautifully.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mmmkit This is a good value
I needed a cage to isolate a very near death cat. I took him to the vet, only to find out that there is preliminary blood work, and he may be FIV positive. We won't know until we do the Western blot test in a couple of months, so I ordered this cage. I use it to temporarily put the little feller in while I'm cleaning his litter box and such (he's sort of messy), and he is very comfortable in it. It isn't a permanent place, but it is very useful for isolating cats from other ones just for this reason. I would recommend it also for indoor cats, if you want to put them on the patio for some nice outdoor air for awhile. It was very easy to put together, and can be taken down and stored away. All you need is a screwdriver. It took me about 40 minutes to put together, and I was all done!

This was perfect! I have two full grown cats that get into trouble doing things they shouldn't overnight, so during the night they get confined in their kitty kennel. The only thing is I wish that it had a couple of hammocks for them to sleep on. :) But all in all, it has plenty of space for a litter pan, water, and food containers! Great buy, super item, and very easy to assemble!

My cat has chronic illness, and lives in this cage when it flares up. Even when she's not sick, she chooses to sleep there. The litter pan goes easily through the bottom door. The cage lifts off, so you can clean the base easily (I left out 2 screws so I can do this, and it seems the screws weren't really needed). I bought extra shelves (elsewhere). That let me make wider sleeping platforms. I put a cardboard box under the lower door so when it is open the door rests on the box, creating a step instead of a ramp. The cage has performed wonderfully.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SaintFrancisProtege Wonderful item
This is an extremely good value for the money, easy to assemble, and disassemble if necessary, for cleaning or otherwise. The three kittens we have like it immensely and I put them out on the screened porch in the sun when the weather permits. The one and only improvement I would suggest is to include additional ties or clamps to secure the corners of the cage where they meet, as they tend to gap. Otherwise, a great product for the money, and looks nice. Plenty of room inside.
Rated 4 out of 5 by TheLadyShops The ONLY reason I didn't give this cage 5-stars is because it can be difficult to set up for one person. To clarify, I used to show and breed cats for about 12 years, which was about 10 years ago. Back then we called them "Tokyo cages" and they had great little spring action clips that held the sides together extremely well. The side clips on these new designs come apart if you are not very careful as you move from the side you already put together to the other side. Also when you move the cage on to the base, or need to move it to clean the base. You just have to be careful. BUT, considering the price was great, I suppose I shouldn't quibble. It's a great cage and working wonderfully. The base design is excellent too, and an immense improvement over the original designs from when these kinds of cages first went from wood to a plastic base design. The groove the metal part of the cage sets in is above the bottom where the cats are so that any wetness won't pool there and cause rust. The cage arrived for store pick-up about 2 days faster than projected which was wonderful because I desperately needed it for a litter of feral kittens I had trapped in my back yard. I had been keeping them in my bathroom, but it was due to be re-tiled the same week. I put the two shelves together on the same level to give them wider room to lay together. There they are in the cage in the pic. The pic doesn't really show the cage well, but you can see they are happy together in it when I am not working on their socialization.
Rated 5 out of 5 by petperson2 great value..
This cage is the perfect home for my new kitten....
Keeps her safe and secure .....
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rathe best value for price
product works well for price paid . You will be hard pressed to find a similar product at this low of a cost. Directions are very unclear however and a better fastening system would be a much needed improvement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ahalaia Happy with it over all
This cage is a nice size, sturdy and easy to put together. Though I wish the cage would 'lock' into the base. It has 2 screws that are suppose to hold the cage to the base, but I didn't use them. I could not see how the screw heads could efficiently hold the wire cage in place (there were no specific area on the wire for the screws to go). Also, when I compared the screw size to where they would go, it looked like the screw might stick out into the cage. Though I might of been wrong on that part. I just opted not to use the screws, if needed I'll find another way to secure the cage to the base. Overall I am happy with it though. For now I have the doors open and the cats can go in and out freely.

no complaints, other than the hardware was missing from the box, and we had to wait an additional week for the company to send them. cat seems to enjoy the cage.
Rated 2 out of 5 by HORSERIDERUSA Kat Kennel
This product can collapse too easily. Would be nice to have larger doors to access the animals inside, as well as clean the pen. Nice idea, though :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by KyttieKat A Great Product!
I love this cage for my cats. It has plenty of room to play and sleep. I would recommend.
Rated 1 out of 5 by SaveAnimals Cheap piece of junk!!!
First of all the product came to me USED! The box was retaped and the item itself was dirty, scratched and the bags that hold the screws were opened.
Since I took it out of the box I wanted to see if I would order another one in its place. NO... Very flimsy, not sturdy at all and doors were way to small. The only way to hold it together would have been to use ties. Needless to say it was returned!
I would have given NO stars for the rating, but you have to give at least one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UberTeacher Spacious for the growing kitten
An accidental kitten happened to my stepson, and he needed a cage for where he was living. It was easy to build and set up, although some of its pieces seem not to fit perfectly. The interior is easily adapted--we built a ladder and hammock for the kitten. Fits a petite litter box and a protected area for her food.
It is bulky- base 2' x 3', and a height of 4', but you don't feel bad about putting your pet in it when you have to leave the house.
Rated 1 out of 5 by didntworkforme This product would have been a great value if I could have assembled it. I tried several times and different ways to assemble, but I couldn't get the hooks over the wire bars. I think that I may have been sent a defective product since the product was not brand new. The product had gentle wear on it. Perhaps it was returned because the previous buyer couldn't assemble it either. Return process was quick and painless at my local Walmart.

Easy to assemble. 2 doors allow for easier access to animals. Shelves are good for kittens, not larger cats. Decent value for the quality.
Rated 1 out of 5 Disappointing
I desperately need a cage big enough for my cat and her two kittens. This would have been perfect if it had been sturdier. Some of the wires didn't meet properly at the sides and the platforms did not fit exactly right. They looked like they would easily fall out. After reading some of the reviews about injuries to pets I returned this for a full refund. I'm looking at a different brand but may end up just building what I need.
Rated 4 out of 5 by KitMitten Serves Purpose
--Easy for one person to assemble
--Wheels glide easily on linoleum floor
--Two screws provided to secure at bottom sides--I couldn't maneuver myself to that level/angle to install, and grateful I couldn't. Without the screws in place it allows me to lift the entire wire cage off of the platform in order to thoroughly clean all parts of the pen. And so far, my fat cat has not fallen to the ground when she jumps/lands on the shelves
--Nothing wrong with this product; however, next time I will purchase a playpen that has a slide-out bottom platform for ease in cleaning
--Baby wipes work nicely for cleaning the bottom platform in between thorough washings
Rated 5 out of 5 by siamesee Excellent Playpen for cats
The Playpen is durable, it does take about 30 minutes to assemble, When assembled you need to pinch the clip ends together otherwise very flimsy, My 15 pd cat sleeps inside and on top of the playpen.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dolphynia Better for kittens than full grown cats
It would be nice if the shelves had a slight lip on them as I am using a towel for the kitten's comfort and it slides off all the time.
