It's a lovely cage but when we put the Gerbils in they won't use the tube.
Found Omlet after searching online. It may appear to be expensive but totally worth the cost. Very well made, easy to clean and works in nearly every room. Dealing with Omlet customer service was excellent. I purchased the wrong one (my mistake) and Omlet helped me to return and exchange to the correct one with about any problem. Highly recommended.
Really pleased with the cabinet unit, very solid and strong. My hamster is happy in it and doesn't try to escape like he did in an all wire cage, he moves around the cage no problem. It does take just a couple of minutes to clean and because the cage is a functioning piece of furniture (I use it as a side table)Andy Murray (the hamster) gets to live beside the sofa getting attention from all visitors and getting sneaked biscuits which he loves. Would be better if the tube was at the side of the cage to make it easier to fit in toys etc. However the cage arrived with a few annoying problems, there was 1 screw missing, which meant a run to the diy store for 1 screw... The plastic floor arrived cracked and there was a broken bar on the wire front, also the water bottle drips. None of these problems were big enough to justify returning the cage and were easily fixed but this is being advertised as a premium product so I didn't expect to see sloppy errors like this. I would still recommend this product to others.
Omlet Says: Thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear that some of the parts were damaged in transit. We always replace any parts which are damaged. I will send you an email to arrange this.
Ample storage for bedding and food. Easy to clean Hamster loves it. Sturdy so ideal for younger children who want a small pet. Good investment you can pay a lot of money for the plastic type but hamsters love chewing plastic.
It looks really nice and is very well designed. I like how my gerbil is safe from other pets, and can still enjoy himself! The only problem is that because gerbils need really deep bedding the tube was surrounded by bedding and he couldn't work out how to get up. I'm hoping he'll learn that he has to dig around the tube otherwise I'll have to replace it with a bridge or something! We were also only sent 8 screws when we were supposed to have 9 but luckily we had a spare in my dads tool box.
Super product. The hamster seems to love it too. Its nice go see her enjoying burrowing as per her nature.
We have had so many poor modified birdcages, plastic pipe cages escaped from, that this was our last resort. It's great! Does everything really well.
And if you want an introduction to Dobbies purchasing, I can do. They need your product. They don't have a cage suitable for gerbils.
Looks fab, easy to put together and fast delivery. Our new gerbils love it lots of room to dig and it's very easy to get the tray out for the kids to handle them safely, only downside our young gerbils would not climb the tube but we replaced it with a c shaped tube and they are quite happy now
This cage is amazing! Easy to build, easy to clean, and looks fantastic! I've had so many comments on this from friends. Highly recommended.
Fairly easy to set up, instructions were clear and only took 30 minutes to an hour. Ziggy the Syrian hamster immediately loved the large wheel and two levels of space. Took some encouragement to climb up the tube the first time, but since then he loves having two levels to explore. He has designated the upper level for feeding, toilet and grooming, and the bottom level for sleeping, gnawing, burrowing and exploring. Only points I would make are the water bottle provided leaked badly so had to be replaced, the wheel is not silent (but the hamster is not located in a bedroom so this doesn't bother us) and occasionally the hamster manages to stuff the vertical tube with bedding material, leaving him stranded in either top or bottom (something we've managed to solve by putting less bedding material in the bottom tray!). None of these are detract from the excellent design of this cage in any way. The storage door at the bottom is handy and it is extremely easy to clean. Overall a happy hamster and happy owners, so well worth the price tag.
