FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional view of FIG. 1 taken across the lines 3--3;

FIG. 4 is a cross-sectional view of FIG. 1 taken along lines 4--4 showing the substantial features of FIG. 3 in elevation;

FIG. 5 is an enlarged perspective view of a corner portion of the animal cage with the floor showing my new design, the walls of the animal cage being shown with broken lines for illustrative purposes and forming no part of the claimed design; and,
