Apparently my grandson's hamster is very happy in his new home. I heard it is very well made, attractive and secure from their cats.
'I thought you had a hamster'. No-one that comes in to my room ever notices the cage at first glance, especially with it matching my birch furniture. It looks fits in perfectly and doubles up as a piece of storage!
Most importantly though, our little man Albert is very happy. He spends a good couple of hours doing his intervals in the wheel each night, luckily it is very quiet!! The tube is perfect for him travelling between the levels, but even more than this it is somewhere he can hide and feel safe when the scary hoover is in the room.
The bars allow him to have a little climb and let me attach some chews to keep his teeth in good shape.
Being a student house, easy cleaning was essential for us and it genuinely takes no more than 5-10 minutes out of our week.
Albert says a big thank you for his swanky pad. One of the many ways we spoil him rotten.
Beautiful house looks so good and so easy to clean
Great product, my hammy loves the 2 levels and the deep tray at the bottom. At first it took her a while to know to use the tube to get between the top and bottom ( I got a little worried) but within a couple of hours she was whizzing up and down with ease. It is great to clean although some sawdust and other food bits etc can sneak out of the cage wires at the top and either down the back or down the front ( there is always going to be mess with a hamster though!) There are also 4 small silver retaining pins that fit into the woodwork above the deep tray that were easily removed by my hamster...I got concerned she may eat them so have removed altogether and doesn't seem to affect the cage at all. Great cage though and would definately recommend to anyone looking for a unique cage for a hamster. Looks great in my bedroom too, nice wood quality and colour blends well against other furniture.
This is the best hamster cage ever! Very deep tray for my hamster Tedder to burrow in and it really promotes natural foraging. Awesome storage compartment. The wheel that comes with this is small and not appropriate for my hamster but other than that I can not fault anything. Thank you so much Omlet for such a cool piece of furniture, it is so nice to have my hamster in the living room right next to where I sit on the sofa, I get to watch my hamster eat, play, be cosy and happy all the time now! :D
Really pleased with cage. It looks lovely. Is easy to clean and spacious. Spike the hamster took a little while to get use to it but is bombing round it now.
The cage is great but I thought a little too small so we bought 2 plus an extra tube and linked them both together.
Nugett, my daughters hamster loves running between the two cages. It took her a couple of hours to work out how to manoeuvre up and down the tubes, but now there is no stopping her.
The only problem we had was Nugget decided that her toilet was going to be in the left corner of top floor. Poo's are fine as they fall through the grill but her wee's run down on the outside of the Perspex box underneath.
We have got over this by having a local company make us a piece of right angled Perspex 4 cm high by 4cm deep and 41cm long and I have placed this into the back of the cage. This stops any "excess" splashing the wall behind and running down the back.
If the top floor of the cage was changes so it had a 4 cm up stand front and back, this would erase the problem we have encountered.
But saying this I still would recomend this cage 100%
Hard to assemble as instructions arent too clear
A little fiddly to put together, but once done, looks great. Clean lines, stylish and functional. Our gerbil struggled with the vertical tube, but once we replaced that with a ladder, she's happy! Decent size for a single animal. Would love to see a bigger option created for anyone with a group of animals.
Don't know why there are some people have given it a lower review. This is a marvellous product and Bluebell loves it! Plenty of room for a larger than average Syrian hamster. Can't fault it at all. Well done omelet for a first class product.
