Hi. Has anyone had a John Hopewell cage with wooden shelves / platforms? How did you find them for cleaning / smells? Thanks!

They do tend to hold the pee more. When I had a cage with wooden shelves in I painted them with child safe paint, which seemed to help keep the pee from soaking in. But I ended up taking them out because the rats tended to use them as toilets more so it was another thing to clean. Never used a John hopewell cage so can't comment on their layout/access etc.

He uses mesh, and mesh always gets smellier quicker because of the many little angles that will hold onto muck. I'd opt for a barred cage any day.
