Oh, gotcha! Well you have to cut the tiles anyway, you could just cut the notch out of one of the larger tiles to match the opening. The tile would look like an "L".But the thing is, I want to keep the hole open, so that my chinchilla can run through both levels. But thanks.
You have to use a tile-saw to cut tiles. Some stores will cut them for you, but a lot of stores will say no way, just like they are doing for cutting wood. Some places will let you rent the saw, but its pricey.How do you cut tiles? Can store people do it for you? Also, I orderd FN 143 for my three FN 142 cages. actually, I love the storage space under the cages, so I am planning to keep the wheels. I am quite tall, 5' 8". Would the weight of tiles be ok for 143 WITH the storage space and wheels?
Also, what do you think about puting bunch of Chin-Chiller on the floor, at least the lower level? It might be too heavy, though.. :hmm:
Hi fanofdmb84, I absolutely love you cage and would love to do the same to my Ferret Nation cage. How to you get the tiles to stay down? Do you glue them, or do they just fit naturally because they were cut to fit? I was planning to go to Lowes and have them cut a slab to my specifications and try to place it on top of pans. Thank you for any answers.Tala has been making it her mission to destroy her cage, no matter what I do. Since I don't care for the Bass pans, I decided I needed to make some changes. I bought a few more granite tiles from the local hardware store and had my dad cut them to size with his tile saw. It only cost me $36.00 to tile all three levels :thumbsup:
They fit in there pretty tight, so I don't have to worry about Tala pulling them up or moving them around, and they're nice and cool so the fuzzies will be comfortable. I haven't yet decided if I'm going to keep using fleece over the top of the granite or not. We'll see what kind of a mess they make of them overnight. The nice thing is that if someone decides to pee in one corner, I can pull that tile up and wash it without having to take them all out. They should make cleanup easier too, just sweep up the poo and hay and I'll be good to go.
I also made them all new hay bags, Tala was particularly grumpy about me taking pictures
Tala checking things out
Groo wasn't real happy with me either. Poor guy just wanted to run on his wheel.
They are cut to fit and just drop in, they definitely don't need any adhesive or hardware to stay in place.Hi fanofdmb84, I absolutely love you cage and would love to do the same to my Ferret Nation cage.
