A hamster's enclosure is central to its wellbeing. A good cage will result in a happy, healthy hamster; a bad one... well, you don't want to go there. The cage's size, shape, and accessories are all important.
Hamsters need a stimulating environment. The enclosure needs to be suitably large for them to exercise and explore, too. The Qute range, for example, is perfect. Owners of single hamsters need to provide a complex, interesting environment that is capable of exercising their pet’s mind as well as its body.
A hamster needs a safe, comfortable home of sufficient size
A hamster enclosure needs to be big enough to house whichever pet (or pets) you choose. A cage intended for a dwarf variety of hamster may not be suitable for a Syrian hamster. The exercise wheel needs to be the right size too, or your hamster will not physically be able to use it.
