Critter Nation vs Savic Royal Suite
Midwest Deluxe Critter Nation
Savic Royal Suite XL
Savic Royal Suite 95
Critter Nation Cage
The first advantage of the Midwest Deluxe Critter Nation Cage is that it’s available for purchase in both Europe and America. While the Savic Royal Suite is primarily only available in the U.K. and Europe unless you’re willing to pay for international shipping.
Critter Nation Cage – Litter Tray
The Critter Nation Cage (Buy Online) includes two plastic ramps along with ramp covers, two shelves, and two litter pans. The shelves and plastic trays are easy to clean and they are height adjustable, so you can configure the cage to meet your pet’s needs. The only downside is that the pans are a little shallow, which can allow litter, food, and debris to easily get kicked out of the cage.
Critter Nation Cage – Doors
The critter nation cage also has “critter-proof” dual-locking doors that allow easy access to the whole cage. Both the Critter Nation and the Savic Royal Suite have double doors, so in that respect, they are very similar. However, you’ll need to be more careful when opening the doors on the critter nation cage since the shallow litter pans might make it easier for your pet to jump out and escape.
Critter Nation Cage – Accessories
The Midwest Critter Nation Cage has built-in attachment points for toys, tubes, hammocks, and a wide range of accessories that you can purchase separately. The critter nation cage is even expandable, which we’ll go over in more detail further down on this page. The Royal Savic also has attachment points for cage accessories, but the Savic Royal Suite isn’t as easily expandable as the critter nation cage.
Critter Nation Cage – Build Quality
The critter nation cage has a sturdy steel square tube frame and strong metal mesh wire panels, and it’s painted with a durable gray hammer tone paint. The cage also sits on sturdy caster wheels that make it easy to move around on any type of flooring. The critter nation cage also has a built-in storage shelf on the lower level, which you won’t get with the Savic Royal Suite.
Critter Nation Cage – Warranty
The Critter Nation is backed by a full 1 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty. While the Savic Royal Suite only offers a standard return policy.
Critter Nation Cage Add-On
The key defining feature of the critter nation cage is its modular design. The cage is comprised of two levels that stack on top of each other, which makes it easy to expand the cage to meet your pet’s needs. That means you can start with the single-story cage, and then get the Critter Nation Cage Add-On (Buy Online) once your pet needs more space. The Savic Royal Suite, on the other hand, has separable levels, but you can only purchase the complete two-story cage.

Savic Royal Suite
In most cases, you’ll only be able to find the Savic Royal Suite for sale in Europe and the U.K. That’s because the Savic Royal Suite is made by a Belgian company that doesn’t have the same global reach as the MidWest Cage Company.
If you want to import the Savic Royal Suite into the U.S.A it’s still possible since you can find the Savic Royal Suite on eBay (View Listing). However, you’ll have to pay for international shipping which can be very costly.
Savic Royal Suite Replacement Tray
The Savic Royal Suite has deep removable trays that are lightweight, which makes them very easy-to-clean. The 1.37-inch (3.5cm ) deep trays can hold more bedding than the critter nation cage, and the cage also has a built-in 4-inch (10cm) spray protector that will keep food, litter, and debris inside the cage and off your floors.
Savic Royal Suite – Doors
The Savic Royal Suite has four large doors with durable stainless steel knobs and an escape-proof spring-latch system. The large front doors will allow you to open up the whole cage to easily clean and reach every part of the interior of the cage. However, the only problem with the doors on the Savic Royal Suite is that they can stick sometimes if they aren’t aligned properly.
Savic Royal Suite – Accessories
The Savic Royal suite has hooks in the interior of the cage that you can use to mount accessories like tunnels, hammocks, tubes, hideouts, bowls, and water bottles. The cage also comes with a set of 5 ladders that connect each level of the cage. In this respect, the Savic Royal Suite and the Critter Nation are pretty much equivalent when it comes to cage accessories.
Savic Royal Suite – Build Quality
The Savic Royal Suite is also constructed using a square steel frame with wire mesh panels just like the Critter Nation Cage. Also, the cage is painted with a gray hammer tone finish that resists scratches, and the hammer tone finish makes it easy-to-clean. The only downside to the Savic Royal Suite is that the build quality isn’t as good as the Critter Nation Cage. For example, the door panels on the Savic Royal suite don’t always align properly, and in some cases, the door handles can loosen over time.
Savic Royal Suite – Warranty
The Savic Royal Suite is only backed by a retailer’s return policy. While the MidWest Critter Nation Cage has a full 1 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.
