Some of the metal crates come with a movable metal grid which allows you to adjust the size as they grow. I was lucky and a pet supply store had some extras and they made one to fit for me. You can make your own out of the lightwieght metal garden fencing . Or you can put a box in back to take up the space . I'd put a rubbermaid storage box instead of card board. They are not supposed to pee in an area they can only stand and comfortably turn around in.
I placed Hannas airline crate on top of a blanket chest at the foot of my bed. She whined only a few minutes then settled down .
we have the crate with the partition, we have it where she only has room to turn around still did no good she would pee in it after 10 minutes or so.
we did have a break thru this past weekend, we moved the crate up stairs in our living room and just left the door open and allowed her to come and go freely as she wished,someone on here suggested and that part worked. we have since started closing the door ater she goes in and falls asleep,when she wakes up she will whimper a few times but we do nt pay her an attention until she is calm.
we hav not went for the all night stay in the crate yet, but hopefully it will be soon.
thanks again for all the advice
