DISCLAIMER: This product is made of untreated kiln dried pine wood— it is not water-proof or weather-proof. Durability may eventually be affected by pet urine, feces and other debris. If purchasing for outdoor use, we recommend using DEFY wood stain or a simlar product to help protect against water damage, mold and mildew.

Our suggestion is to mount the box higher in your pets cage, top corner of the cage is ideal. Make sure your pet can always easily enter the box by setting up a wood platform below, or mount next to side of cage. The wooden post will come detached inside the box and can be inserted into a pre-drilled hole at the front of the box. We suggest using super glue to permanently mend the post into place. When used for breeding, mount closer to bottom of cage in case babies come out and need to find their way back.

Nesting animals require a safe place to sleep or nap, preferably one that is quite, dark, and warm. Proper nesting material can help reduce stress levels and increase the quality of sleep your pet is getting, all while optimizing their health.

To ensure your pet's safety, thoroughly inspect cage accessories on a daily basis. Look out for any signs of damage or defects, and replace the accessory if damaged. Make sure that the accessories are securely fastened to the cage and check for any sharp edges or points that could cause harm to your pet. Additionally, we recommend that you regularly clean cage accessories to maintain a healthy and hygienic environment for your pet.

My surgar glider love it

Nice but could be harder wood

Used in an indoor cage, the squirrel is already chewing pieces off the edges of the wood top. Disappointed that when I asked where I could buy just the metal liner on the hole you could not (or would not) help me.

Thank you for leaving a review for our Sturdy Nest Box. We're glad to hear that you like it, but we're sorry to hear about the issue with the wood. Our team will definitely look into using harder wood in the future to prevent this from happening. We apologize for any disappointment and we will also look into offering the metal liner as a separate purchase option in the future. If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

My five sugar gliders love it!


I looked at this and thought, such a little hole and just a box. But noooooo... It's so well built easy to sit or install and the squirrel claimed it immediately!! I so want another now.


Our little Rowdy loves this box. He is a southern flying squirrel and it is the perfect size for him. He picks it over other bedding spots majority of the time. I also love the feature that you can open the lid from the top! -Shelly J.
