General Information

Whether starting with a new puppy or starting again with an adult dog, this folding double-door metal dog crate cuts housebreaking time in half and reduces behavioral problems. The exceptionally versatile unit features a divider panel that allows for adjusting the length of the living area. Keeping the living space small enough reduces the chance of the puppy eliminating in one end and sleeping in the other. Choose the size of crate that the dog will need when it reaches its full adult size, as the divider can be adjusted as the puppy grows. For easy placement in an automobile or in the corner of a room, the dog crate also comes equipped with convenient double doors, which allow both side and front access. Other highlights include safe and secure slide-bolt latches, a durable satin-black electro-coat finish, 1-1/2-by-5-7/8-inch mesh, rounded corners, and two plastic handles for carrying. The unit easily sets up and folds down to a portable size for suitcase-style carrying, and an ABS-composite plastic pan for easy clean up comes included. The dog crate measures 36 by 24 by 27 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

Pros: easy to asssemble (collapsible design), handles for lifting, plastic tray, reasonable price, sturdy, some sizes come with a divider panel
Cons: must check all ends of bars and rounded panel connectors for rough or sharp
this MidWest Life Stages crate is a very good product. i bought the XL size crate with double doors (one along the long side, and the other at one end), in the 48 inches L by 30 inches W by 31 inch H size. i had read the reviews before buying, so i knew two things:  check for rough or sharp ends of the bars before using, and can use the included divider panel (available with some sizes) to make a quite roomy shelf/loft space (which expands the available space for kitties).

as for the rough or sharp ends of the bars, do check for that. i carefully checked every inch of the crate and bars, and all rough or sharp parts got filed down with a metal file (available at most hardware stores). there weren't any particularly sharp parts, but i was meticulous and got anything that even had the slightest roughness to it.

this crate, in the size i bought, is just huge! we're planning on adopting two young female cats, when i've found good matches for my jaspurr, so we're preparing for our new little ones now. i wanted a crate that would be more like a kitty apartment for our new girls (to be used during the integration), and that's what we have. i have inside the crate:  a large corner cat hammock, a full-size litter box and litter mat, a food mat that will hold food and water dishes, and i even have room for a regular sized ball track game. there's extra space on the floor area even with all those things on it. and there's the shelf/loft space too.

this crate is very easy to assemble. it's collapsible, and it's very easy to set it up as well as collapse it back down to move it. it also comes with easily attached/removed handles, that are smooth and comfortable on my hands when lifting/moving the crate.

the size i bought included a divider panel, which i set up as a shelf/loft area using zip ties. i added a blanket on top of the shelf/loft. the crate comes with a sturdy plastic tray for inside and laid on the bottom of it. the instructions, which were easy to follow, suggested using the box the crate came in to cut cardboard panels. the suggestion was to use a cardboard panel under the plastic tray to avoid having rattling sounds, from the plastic tray bumping against the metal grate bottom panel of the crate every time your cat moved around. definitely take the time to do this! my 12 pound adult male cat has been inspecting and testing the crate and it's set up, and we've heard no rattling whatsoever. i've found that i'll need to cut another cardboard panel to use under the blanket on the shelf/loft, because the blanket tends to push down through the shelf bars/grate with kitty paws/legs.

i really like that there are the two doors on the MidWest Life Stages crate. this just makes things easier, and gives you more options on where the crate is located and what you have set up inside the crate.

my boy has spent time curled up or stretched out and napping on the shelf/loft area (doors left open, so he can come and go from the crate as he wants), and seems very pleased with the crate. at this point. two days after setting this crate up, my jaspurr has given it his seal of approval.
