What is this ball pit you all are talking about that you are putting in the bottom of the cages? I see it in several new posts.

its a plastic container, a small one that people put ping pong balls in.

I would use a cookie jar from the dollar store, they are cheap.

I just made one today! I got a small CD holder (12x6x6) that is wire from target and put 24 ping pong balls in it. I will post a picture of it with my pictures. Tate has crawled around it, but not in it yet. I didn't go with using a cookie jar, I had a dream Tate got stuck in it b/c it was to hard for her to climb out. Sorry, weird I know, but I got something she can climb in and out of.

I use a large plastic strainer for the balls, the pee will fall out and it also easier to clean, I set it in the sink and use the hand sprayer to clean it

Would a small glass fish bowl work as well?

I havent tried a ball pit. Does anyone have photos of what they are doing this with? I picture 50 ping pong balls stuffed into a small trash can or such. Sounds dangerous but I suppose a sugar could navigate that mess.

Makes me think about trying to swim in a pool filled with Jello. That would be immediate death.

A fish bowl wouldn't work because the suggies can't climb out of the glass. You would have a very frantic suggie who could become dehydrated.

Some suggie owners have used chinchilla bath houses for ball pits. It has to be something they can climb out of. I purchased a large plastic food drainer from the Dollar Store and filled it with ping pong balls. I have placed mealies in there for them to "hunt" and also fleece strips to make bedding with. In the morning, all the fleece strips would be in their sleeping pouches and the ping pong balls are everywhere!!!

This isnt a toy to leave in their cage all the time because it gets dirty pretty quickly.

Tate is a little turkey, she hasn't played in hers yet!! I can tell none of the balls are moved!! I took a few out to roll around the bottom in case she needed to get used to the balls. I just don't think she is normal! LOL

Kazko, mine is picutred in my picture album if you want to check it out. I know Rita said they get stinky not to leave them in, but mines not stinky b/c Tate won't play in it! Maybe my new little girl will like it once I get her. END OF JANUARY!! YAY!!
