I know... I knew this and it was one of the reasons why I chose the first cage, because it was nice and wide. But for some reason I got myself in a flap (pardon the pun) and that went out the window because the only space there is for the cage is on a shelf in a nook in the livingroom and so width is limited to 70cm.
I can cancel the order, it's not saying dispatched yet. I'll have a look for a wider one. Is it being wider so important that it would be better it be wider but smaller overall?
I was going to grab this one initially, but the reviews completely put me off, because they say it's quite flimsy https://www.amazon.co.uk/Liberta-Riv...s=bird+cage+70
