      thats not cruel at all. in fact thats how many trainers suggest you keep them.

      If the cage is large, dry and warm, they are receieving food, water, shelter and love, and getting regualer exercise, then its not cruel.

      no, as long as it’s only for a few hours, and the cage is big enough for them to stand up and turn around in.

      You put him in there at night? As long as the crate is in a safe, climate controlled area that’s not cruel at all. Why are you even asking?
