Small Pet Housing

Small pet housing greatly affects your little pet's overall health and activity. Providing your little friend with comfortable, sturdy, and well-ventilated small pet housing will ensure they enjoy a well-lived life.

The most important factor in choosing small pet housing is that it should create more than enough room for your little friend. No matter which small pet you have - hamster, mice, gerbil, rat, rabbit, among others - he will need a lot of space to move around and satisfy his playful disposition. Choosing a chew-resistant metal cage is also a good idea for long lasting protection. Also consider the cage wall spacing. There are small, medium and largely-spaced walls to choose from depending on your pet's size. Also opt for cages with secure side latch and large front and top access doors for easy pet handling.

You wouldn't want a dirty pet, right? Then you should choose a small pet housing that is raised above soiled litter by about half an inch of grid mesh floor. A slide out dropping pan is a must as well, for easy cleaning.

Small pets are naturally curious and intelligent little creatures, and you can easily bore them to death with a bare home. Bring out your pet's playful self by decorating his cage with toys and cage accessories! Now, if you think choosing the right toy for your small pet housing is easy, think again. Each small pet, like humans, has its own distinct personality. Some pets like to run around, others like to climb, some are just plain lazy and like to sleep a lot. Get to know your pet, and choose from among the hundreds of toys and accessories available for them. There are tons of beds, hammocks, tunnels, shred toys, shelves out there to suit your pet's individual taste.

When trying to get your furry friends interested with new accessories and toys, also remember that moderation is the name of the game. Some owners, in a well-meaning attempt to please their pets, bought a flurry of stuff and gave them all to their pets - all at the same time! Well, let's not get overexcited here, remember to moderate toys and accessories as too much of these may cause undue stress to your little friend. Like you, he may get overly excited in exploring his new toys, and this overload may be unhealthy. Try to put toys and accessories in your small pet housing one at a time, and rotating them a few times each month.

Choosing a small pet for a companion needs significantly less nurturing effort than having dogs or cats around. But low maintenance as they are, remember that small pets love activity. Nurturing their curiosity and energy by creating the right small pet housing is the key to keeping happy little pets.
