Caged Pets 43

A cage is an enclosure often made of mesh, bars or wires, used to confine, contain or protect something or someone.

A cage can serve many purposes, including keeping an animal in captivity, capturing, and being used for display of an animal at a zoo.

Cages are often used now as a source to confine animals. These provide as a habitat to the animal, and since they’ve advanced so greatly, they are now specially designed to fit that species of animal.

Captive breeds of birds, rodents, reptiles, and even larger animals have also been known to be confined in a cage as a domesticated animal (also known as a pet). Captivity is a common purpose of the cage.
