Default Cage Rattle

Hi All!

I hope everyone is having a great day. I have ordered some really nice new wooden cage shelves from My Critter Store. They are wonderful but they are only anchored to one side of the cage (previous shelves had nuts and bolts that anchored to 2-3 sides of the cage at once). We have a Ferret Nation 142.

My main issue is now when my chin bounces from one shelf to another the cage rattles. This seems to be stressing her out.

Are there any quick fixes to quiet down the cage?

Thank you so much!

I see you posted this a while ago, so hopefully you have been able to resolve the cage rattling.

If not, what part is rattling? With mine, whenever my chins move around in the cage the doors were rattling. I don't know if it stressed them out, but my ears sure didn't like it. My fix was simple - I glued a few small pieces of cardboard together and stick it in between where the doors meet to make a tighter fit.

Hope this helps.
