Girl looking at a Hamster in the Qute. Your Kids will love the Qute Hamster Cage.

The large, deep bedding tray allows your gerbils and hamsters to nest and burrow naturally. The bedding tray is made from virtually unbreakable polycarbonate and is crystal clear so you and your pets have the perfect view of each other.

The flooring in the top tier of the Qute.

The Qute Hamster and Gerbil Cage now have solid floors. The majority of the floor is made from clear plastic, allowing you to get a good view of both the top and bottom of the cage and your pet. A slightly raised grid surface design provides grip, without being uncomfortable on small feet, and a section of mesh either side offers good ventilation and allows bedding or debris to fall into the tray below.

The Lift 'n' Twist™ Tube Keeps your Hamster Healthy and Happy

The Qute hamster house has two levels, the top floor is for feeding and exercising and underneath your pet hamsters and gerbils will love the extra deep tray for nesting and burrowing. You can use the patented Lift 'n' Twist Tube to separate the top level from the bedding tray - this fantastic feature is great for when you want to clean the bottom tray, remove it to add or retrieve something, or if you want to interact with your pet.

The Qute is suitable for one Syrian hamster or two gerbils. Syrian hamsters are solitary animals that prefer to live by themselves, so don’t let two of them live in the Qute. The Qute is not designed for dwarf hamsters, as they can struggle to use the tube. It is also not suitable for mice, rats or chinchillas.

The cage is designed for Syrian Hamsters, but many people keep dwarf hamsters in a Qute. Dwarf hamsters might struggle to use the tube to get between the levels, so you might have to find another solution if they can’t work it out, such as steps or a ladder. This is however not something we provide. The wire spacing is also designed for gerbils and Syrian hamsters, and might not be suitable for dwarf hamsters.
It might take your pet a few days to get the hang of the tube, but they will learn eventually. Try giving your pets treats to encourage them to climb both up and down the tube. You can also take the tube out of the cage and let your pet explore it during playtime, tilting it gradually more and more until your pet runs through it in a horizontal position.

External dimensions:
Without storage: 2'1.1" (H) x 1'6.8" (L) x 1'2.5" (W)
With storage: 2'8.2" (H) x 1'6.8" (L) x 1'2.5" (W)

Internal dimensions:
Length: 1'4.9"
Width: 1'2.5"
Bedding tray: 11.6" (H)
Top level space: 11.6" (H)

Approximate volumes:
Top level space = 8.3 US Liquid Gallons (or 1921 cubic inches)
Bedding tray = 8.5 US Liquid Gallons (or 1978 cubic inches)
Combined = 16.8 US Liquid Gallons (or 3900 cubic inches)

The Qute comes with a comprehensive instruction manual that takes you through the assembly process, and you can also watch our step-by-step How to Build videos. You will find the video for building a Qute without storage here and one with storage here.
Yes, very easy. Locking the tube in place you can keep your pets secured on the top level as you pull out the bedding tray. Throw away the used bedding, wipe the tray clean with wet cloth and a pet safe disinfectant and refill with fresh bedding. Move your pets into the bedding tray and keep the tube in the locked position while you wipe down the solid floor, clean all accessories and replace food and water. This will only take you a few minutes!
Yes, as long as it’s assembled properly and the different components are put in place, the Qute will keep your hamster or gerbils from escaping, and for other pets to get to them. We recommend that you regularly go over the cage to check for any wear or damages that might compromise the safety of your Qute. Please also make sure that your pets are secured in either area or kept elsewhere when you are cleaning the cage.
The diameter of the wheel is 7.4 in.
The wheel mounting has an extremely low friction bearing inside, resulting in a much smoother turn, so the noise level from the wheel will be minimal.

Fantastic - Maria, Tyne and Wear,

I bought this for my sons 2 gerbils. The gerbils love it. Took them about an hour to realise they had to go up and down the tube but they can do it easily. The wheel is very quiet which is a godsend as cage is in my sons bedroom. It's so easy to clean and instructions are very straight forward assemble the cage. Other cages have wire stairs etc, this one doesn't which makes it kinder to their little feet. Keeps area around it clean, no food etc being thrown out and it looks good too. Highly recommend this cage.

Perfect cage for our hamster! - Jessica,

I have been looking for a hamster cage for ages and researched lots before I decided to go with this one. I loved the fact that it’s like a piece of furniture and is the perfect size for a Syrian hamster. When we first put Rolo in he stayed at the top and loved his wheel and climbing on the wire sides, he didn’t venture in his own down the tube so the following day I put him in the bottom. He loved it! There is so much room for digging but he couldn’t go upstairs by himself (I’d left little nuts around the top for him to find and each night they were still there.) Two days after putting him downstairs I got a long carrot and held it down the tube and sure enough he soon learnt how to come up the tube to chase the carrot He was unable to go down so I’d move him downstairs to keep going up! It took him about a week to figure out how to get both up and down the tube and now he happily plays upstairs and then goes down stairs to dig and hide his food. I think I would prefer the tube to be at the side so I could put more toys inside but other than that it’s great. I’ve cleaned it without any trouble and the best thing is that I can clean it without disturbing Rolo too much. I use the cupboard to store his food tubs and his monkey nut treats and it’s great. I don’t use it to store sawdust or bedding because I prefer to take the draw outside to clean so that stays in the garage. I recommend this cage it’s really well built, simple to build, easy to clean and best of all Rolo seems happy!

Attractive cage with great space for burrowing at the bottom. Could be bigger. - Rachel, Aberdeenshire,

We got this cage for a syrian hamster we adopted that had only had a very small cage with a thin layer of bedding. She immediately took to burrowing through the bedding in the bottom drawer of the qute and spends a lot of time there. We fill it quite high. She clearly loves having the chance to burrow - something her previous habitat did not provide for. I thought she'd find it difficult getting up and down the tunnel especially since it's buried in the bedding but she manages fine. My only concern is it looks a little small. It would be good if there were options to buy two of them to link together. I have seen other people have done this by DIY but we're not very good at that sort of thing. Maybe the product team can design a front or back cage portion with a tunnel attachment that can be connected to another enclosure?

Grandson loves it - Catherine, Caithness,

Bought this for my grandson's 8th birthday in September so he could interact and learn to look after his hamster. He loves it and it is so easy for him to use. Cleans out both areas himself and Oreo the Syrian Hamster mastered the tube after only a couple of days! Very pleased!
