    Custom build it, of course.

    You can use anything from hex fencing (Cyclone fence) to chicken wire fencing to hardware cloth. Lots of options there.

    The do-it-yourself route will be far cheaper, too.

    I recommend making panels from 3/4" white PVC pipe to the required dimensions, then making a smaller panel to fit into one side. Use that as the door.

    Then you can go nuts with self-tapping screws and your hardware cloth or what have you, and you'll be done in no time. Use cable ties or stiff wire to lash the panels together and you are set.

    Might I also recommend a remnant from the Linoleum or Office Carpet store to line the cage with? Cheap and very effective.
