I found the omlet website about 2 years ago. Since I first saw the qute cage I thought it was amazing. I ordered the cage without storage because I didn't need the extra space. I think that the extra space underneath is a very good idea though. When I ordered my cage it was very easy process. I found that the tracking was very useful.The cage came on the date I asked for and the driver helped bring it into my house because the box was very heavy. I opened the package and everything was very neatly packed and protected with no damages which I was pleased about. Lots of the reviews on here say that the flat pack cage took a while to make but I found the step by step guide very easy to follow. It took me and my boyfriend 30 minuets to make. In the guide book it said that there was 8 of one type of screw but I only had 4 we found that we didn't need the other 4 anyway so we just assumed that they were for if you brought the cage with extra storage. I do advise that you clean everything before placing the hamster into the cage. I finally got my hamster and placed him Into the cage and found that because he was so small and only 8 weeks old, he couldn't get up or down the vertical tube so this was quite worrying. I then found that he had fallen down the tube but was okay. After about a week he was able to get up and down his tube. He absolutely loves his wheel although it isn't silent but it is a good size for a medium sized hamster. I found that there was a lot of mesh floor which I thought the whole floor was plastic by the discription on the website but it isn't. I'm concerned that it might give him mumble foot later on.
Pros: quite big, very modern and not an eye saw, easy to clean,easy access to your pet, good delivery experience, easy to build.
Cons: expensive, heavy, wood gets stained easily, has mesh flooring, wheels not silent, tube is difficult for young hamsters to get up at first.
I bought this cage as my hamster kept chewing out of his cage through the plastic. The plastic bowl on this cage is very strong, he has tried to chew out but failed! He loves climbing up and down the tube to get to the top level too.
It's very easy to clean and looks lovely and it fits in with the furniture. Would definitely buy again!
A lovely product. We are happy with it.
We bought this cage to replace a standard version purchased from a pet store. So glad we did! Hamster adores her new home and snuggles far better in this as the bottom part is so much like a natural habitat to burrow etc. Love the fact it has two separate floors and there is no waking up to a pile of mess on the living room floor as any debris falls below into the bottom floor. This actually blends in with our current furniture and looks stylish/contemporary. the only negative thing to say about this cage is that we didn't feel the bottom perspex part was secure enough as our hamster kept pushing it forward even although there is a locking slider in place so we attached a small bulldog clip onto that and the lowest cage bar for more security just in case she did escape! Other than that, this is a fantastic purchase and worth every penny! Our hamster loves it!
Great product and well built! No complaints other than sometimes the wheel falls off and also my hamster likes to pee on the side next to the wheel and it runs down on the outside of the bottom compartment. The wheel isn't silent but isn't terribly loud either.
A really fantastic and value for money product, looks great, is easier to clean and sturdier than any previous cage we've had, and is as good as it says. And no more hamster mess all over the floor. I have already recommended to various friends. One of the best purchases I've made in a long time.
This cage makes cleaning so easy and the gerbils love it. We call it their London Flat because it's so fancy and from the UK. ;)
Wow what more can I say.well thought out design. Plenty of space the wheel is perfect size . Looks great easy to put together. Our hamster loves it. It has helped make her very tame, my daughter is able to handle her thanks to the bedding tray. It really is great. For those that have mentioned the wheel being noisy/coming off. If you make sure the fastening is covering 4 bars it is a silent wheel, also the water bottle if you really screw it up super tight it doesn't leak!! ,took us a week to work those things out!
We love this cage! It is nice to not have a cage taking up table space, and it is fun to sit on the floor to watch the hamster explore. The cage took 1 hour or so to assemble, but it is very sturdy and will last a long time. I love that there aren't a million plastic tunnels to disassemble and reassemble to clean. Even the water bottle is the perfect size for small critters. We bought with storage and are glad we did. Truly thoughtfully designed!
Excellent materials - very good looking - need some DIY skills to assemble. I use mine for "rescue" mice - ones the cat brings in alive. Got seven so far - plenty of room. Bit of a hassle to get all seven on one level at the same time for cleaning - but it adds to the fun !!
