    Found this on an eBay search for a new cage for my finches...

    Cage for parrot, monkey, cockatiel, budgie, finch, bird on eBay (end time 16-Jun-10 14:36:23 BST)

    It states this fairly ordinary sized parrot cage (alright for something Amazon or Cockatoo sized but not Macaw imo) is 'suitable for monkeys' .....BLOODY MONKEYS???!!!!

    sorry but anyone in the right mind who thinks this is a good sized housing for a primate is out of their minds!

    Stuff like that makes me really mad :(

    and for the record.... the bar spacing is FAR too big for finches or budgies, they'd be straight outta there! How irresponsible :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I know, me too :(

    it's just a very irresponsible thing to do... I mean, anyone who might be buying finches or budgies for the first time and is looking for a cage might be really impressed by this massive cage (massive for a finch or budgie) and buy it, not realising the bar spacing (which doesnt appear to be mentioned on the listing) is too wide :(

    ...and if anyone else so much as thinks of putting a monkey in there... they'd be the ones who need bloody caging! Owning monkeys is cruel imo anyway, no 'average' person will be able to offer them the space, time and care they really need :(

    oh my god, seriously? That's terrible! Those poor doggies :(

    Hopefully anyone who is stupid enough to think that it's suitable for a monkey is too stupid to be able to get hold of a monkey!

    Yes you know those really, really small ones that look a bit like a Cappucino only there not coffee coloured but are much, much smaller like those you get in Kinder eggs! ;)
