Which Pet Playpen Should I Get for My Small Furry Friend?

There are so many pet playpens in the market that claim to be good for your pets. Be it hamsters, pet rats, pet hedgehogs, gerbils, degus, ferrets, short-tailed opossums, chinchillas or guinea pigs. Considering bar size, ability of your pet to escape, your ability to hop into the playpen, space you have in your house and cost, here are some recommendations on a good pet playpen.

OPTION #1. Tespo Pet Playpen Animal Fence Cage Exercise Pen Crate Kennel Hutch for Small Animals, Bunny, Rabbit, Puppy & Guinea Pigs, Indoor 12 Panels

 

It comes in two measurement sizes:

 

14″ x 14″ Frosted White

OPTION #3. MidWest Homes for Pets Small Animal Pen

We would recommend this for  guinea pigs as smaller pets might squeeze themselves through the bars or climb their way out. For smaller pets, you can use the Tespo Pet Playpen Animal Fence Cage Exercise Pen Crate Kennel Hutch for Small Animals, Bunny, Rabbit, Puppy & Guinea Pigs, Indoor 12 Panels.

If one MidWest Homes for Pets Small Animal Pen seems too small, get two of them to get more room.

If you are wondering what the material covering used is, it is a waterproof twin mattress cover.
