Hello, lotus 15!
Thank you so much for a well-written, objective piece about cages on the market today. I have two California Cages that are decades old -- one for my macaw and one for my African Grey. Both are beginning to show some wear, so I'm just starting to look for new cages.
Like you, I also thought California Cages was out of business, but when I went looking for the Freedom Cage, I found a California Cage here: http://www.birdtoyoutlet.com/prod-SANTA_CRUZ-978.aspx
I thought you'd like to know, because they truly were superior products. I would love to buy two stainless steel California Cages, but I have no idea what the company's status is at this point. Obviously, the cage I just listed is still being made, assuming it's the "same" California Cage company. I'm going to do more research to see if I can find more info on the cages, and will advise if I find out anything helpful.
Thanks again for all the research you did on the article.
It's very helpful!
