Default Free to good home - large chinchilla/ferret cage

Our chinchilla died a few weeks ago (he was 12!) and we still have his cage. It's about 4 feet tall, 3 feet wide and about 1.5 feet deep. It's got 4 levels and a detachable bottom.
It's in used condition, the bars are a little chewed up, but overall it looks decent. I'm hoping to give another animal a good home!

Let me know if you're interested, I'm in Wesley Chapel on the Hills/Pasco county line.

Yeah he was healthy his entire life. 2 weeks before he died, he was tearing up and down the stairs like a nut. The last week though, he seemed a little sluggish and wasn't eating much.
I figure he lived 24 times as long as the average gerbil or mouse.

Got pics? Is this a traditional cage or is it a "habitat"?

I'm trying to gauge its rabbit-appropriateness-factor.

The first 2 levels look like this cage, then there's a 3rd and 4th half level, where the floor doesn't go all the way across. This cage is 30" high but mine is about 48" I'd say.
I don't know if a rabbit would want to climb up to the higher levels.

Darnit. If only I were closer.

I have been kicking around the idea of getting a ferret, and this could have sealed the deal......

I thought they had those at the pet store for fancy cat toys. I brought one home one time, but it didn't last 3 minutes with 2 cats around.

Our dog Molly has two cats to play with... she still thinks they are the best chase toys 3V4R. I think the cats would like to feed her to a chinchilla or two...

aww.. I would love to get the cage too. A few years ago we wanted to get a Chinchilla. Any pics of your old friend? My wife and I are thinking of getting a rabbit though but I may start looking into Chinchillas again.

Good Luck!

Alright, I realize I"m behind on this... but Porter, do you have a rabbit... or just an obsession with them?
either way I am slightly scared.

Just FYI: Right around the corner from your shop is a vets office that has 4 ADORABLE puppies that were abandoned and they are adopting out... $50 includes first set of shots & "fixing". 6 week old lab mix puppies.
