|Two cages, one wall|
Willow is a nosy old lady: she often watches the Newbies from her second level and tries to rubs noses with Bertie. I think the new design will let Willow be closer to the Newbies without them stealing her food.
|New grid layout but still the old store-bought bottom|
I normally tackle cage redesigns on cleaning day, so I had my day all planned out. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough coroplast to construct the bottom of Willow's cage. I plan to pick up the coroplast during the week.
Regardless, I took the opportunity to reassemble the grids. I hate deconstructing a cage. Clipping away zip-ties makes me feel like I'm wasting good work. But the end results should be worth it. Both cages now share two grids as a common wall and the coroplast along that wall was removed. Willow's cage has a sturdier base and was lengthened to a full three grids. So far, it all looks pretty good. All I have left to do is the coroplast.
