Step 1: Attach Side Passageways to Base.
Place the Scatter-less Base on a flat surface with the CritterTrail sticker facing you on the right hand side. Slide the Left Side Passageway (only one open hole) into the u-shaped opening on the left side of the Base. Slide the Right Side Passageway (with both holes open) into the u-shaped opening on the right side of the Base. Be sure to line up the grooves and gently press down until both Passageways snap into place.
Note: For your convenience, the Side Passageways have been pre-assembled to last permanently. Attempting to disassemble the Side Passageways may cause breakage.
Step 2: Fill Scatter-less Base with Bedding.
Fill the Scatter-less Base with a liberal amount of bedding material (not included). Your new pet naturally enjoys burrowing and digging, so choose a material that is safe and dust-free. Some small animal experts discourage owners from using cedar bedding due to the sensitivity of the small animal's respiratory system.
Step 3: Insert Wire Panels into the Scatter-less Base.
Gently slide the Back Wire Panel through the side grooves located on the back sides of the Passageways. Be sure to press down gently until the Back Wire Panel is secured into the lip on the Base. Next, gently slide the Front Wire Panel with Door through the side grooves located on the front sides of the Passageways. Again, be sure to press down gently until the Front Panel is secured into the lip on the Base.
Step 4: Bubble Wave Wheel Assembly.
Insert the Wheel Connector Clip into the center hole of the Bubble Wave Wheel. Attach the Bubble Wave Wheel to the center of the Back Wire Panel between the third and fourth bar up from the bottom. Simply press the Wheel Connector Clip through the Back Wire Panel and twist Connector half way to lock Wheel into place.
Step 5: Petting Zone Lid/Roof Attachment
Insert the Petting Zone Lid into the Roof Top. Be sure to press in gently until the Petting Zone Lid is secured into place. Next, place the Roof Top with Petting Zone onto the top of the assembled bottom portion of the home. It is important that the Petting Zone is aligned over the right side of the home. Be sure to line up the grooves and gently press down until the Roof Top snaps into place.
Step 6: Accessory Attachment
Click-lock the Bubble Plug into the bottom circular opening of the Left Side Passageway. Next, click-lock the bottom of the U-Tube into the lower circular opening of the Right Side Passageway. Then, click-lock the top of the U-Tube into the top circular opening of the Right Side Passageway. The U-Tube will allow your pet to have access to the Petting Zone.
Hint: Accessory Access Holes: There are two unused access holes that will allow you unlimited expansion of your pet's home with the use of CritterTrail Add-On accessories. Do not punch out the additional access holes until you are ready to expand your pet's home and have already purchased your accessories. Access holes cannot be closed once opened without the use of a Bubble Plug cap. To close an opened access hole you will need to use CritterTrail Bubble Plug item #60590 or any other accessory Add-Ons.
Step 7: Using the Water Bottle and Food Dish
To fill Water Bottle, remove the metal cap. Fill Bottle completely by placing it under a light stream of running water. Replace metal cap and insert through pre-opened hole in the front corner of the Roof Top.
Hint: To prevent any leaking, always completely fill the Water Bottle full of water (leaving air in the bottle may cause excess dripping). Always remove the Water Bottle before transporting your CritterTrail One. Transportation will shift your Water Bottle and can cause leaks.
Place a quality food mixture (not included) into your pet's Food Dish. Place the Food Dish into any corner of your new CritterTrail One. Do not place Food Dish under the Water Bottle.
Cleaning Your CritterTrail One
To clean your CritterTrail One, simply push down on the Back Thumb Tabs while lifting up on the Front Finger Tabs.
Note: The Back Thumb Tabs are located on the sides of the Scatter-less Base. The Front Finger Tabs are located on the bottoms of the Side Passageways.
Gently lift the entire assembled upper portion of the home away from the Scatter-less Base.
When cleaning, do not use any abrasive or toxic cleaning products that may cause damage to your home or harm to your pet.
After cleaning and replacing soiled bedding, place the upper cage portion back onto the Scatter-less Base. Again, be sure to line up the grooves and gently press down until the upper cage portion snaps into place.
Cleaning the Roof Top and Petting Zone
To clean the Roof Top and Petting Zone, first gently lift up on the left side. Next, lift up on the right side and remove the Roof Top from the assembled lower portion of the home.
