It takes a good couple of hours to assemble but the hamster loves it.
Found our gerbils made a huge mess with a traditional cage, and it was tricky to get the gerbils out to play with them. This cage is fantastic as they cannot make as much mess on the floor, it's really easy to get them in and out and it's easy to keep clean. It also looks great! Took a couple of days training to 'teach' the gerbils to climb the vertical tunnel, but once they did it was all good.
We are 1st time hamster owners and this cage is perfect. It was easy to assemble and our hamster seems to be super happy in her new home. Being able to remove the bottom box is clutch to allow my daughter to interact with her pet safely and without worries of the hamster getting away. Also our hamster figured out by night 1 (with a small amount of hand herding and encouragement) how to go up and down the tube in order to enjoy and play on both levels. The wheel is silent and I love how easily it can be removed and put back so that it can be cleaned out on a daily basis. The drawer at the bottom is perfect size as well to hold all our hamster care items such as food and toys in 1 easy accessible spot.
Our new gerbil brothers (Chadwick and Cameron) love this cage! They took to it immediately and are very happy in their new home. It seconds as a bedside table in my daughters room - nice piece of furniture and easy to put together. Thanks for creating this cage - we may not have gotten gerbils if we did not find the Qute Omlet Cage to keep them in.
Our syrian hamster Diego is so much happier and content in this gorgeous, yet very practical new home..it is very easy to keep clean,and we like the fact you can remove the base, and pet him safely..he loves it..before he was an unhappy hamster, constantly knawing at his cage bars..there is none of that now..i thoroughly recommend this home..it is easy to put together, looks stylish and sleek..fantastic x
This is a great cage got it for my 15 year old daughter hamster loves it big enough space great having an upstairs and downstairs in it and drawer at bottom for storage wee mansion for a happy hamster would deffo recommend best one I’ve seen
I've had hamsters for over 20 years. My whole life, I couldn't wait until I was older and could afford a fancy cage, like a big hutch that rabbits have.
I recently bought a home and decided my hamster needed an upgrade as well. She had a 20 gallon aquarium, but it wasn't anything fancy.
I looked at hutches, but none of them were made for hamsters, except a couple I loved - but they're all wood and the reviews all said that their hamsters chewed through them.
I was lucky to find this one, as it was my next best option. I wish it was bigger (either a third floor, or something) BUT being that there's not much on the market, this is great. My hamster has had so much fun exploring and building tunnels. She has also decided that she wants bedding on top, so she's moved it up... which does create a problem. The top is all bars, so the bedding and poop does get pushed out and falls on the floor. Not too much, but enough to be a mess to clean up. I'm working on a plexglass half plat to attach to the back so it won't come out.
I did also have to teach her how to use the tube. She'd never used tubes before, so we practiced together, but it took her maybe one night before she figured it out herself. She has a great time exploring. It looks perfect in the room too - just like furniture. I'm really in love with it.
It took a while to put together, and some parts are very particular so I was worried that I got a piece that was defected and wouldn't fit, but it all ended up fitting. I'm very happy with this product and would definitely recommend it. It looks good, it's functional, my hamster is happy, and it gives her some new things to do.
This cage came quicker then estimated ordered it Thursday night and got it Sunday. It looks bigger in pictures and the video but still works great for my Syrian hamster. We have been through several cages. First one was from a pet store and she got stuck in the tubes as to return and buy something with out tubes. Second cage my dog flipped over all the time trying to get to our hamster. This put me on the hunt for a dog proof cage. I definitely found the answer to that problem. This cage is heavy and my dog can’t move it at all. The tube is big enough that my Syrian can climb in and flip over go what ever way she wants to without getting stuck at all. It was easy to put together and looks great. All of she stuff “she has a lot” fits great. Love that she has a play area away from her sleep area. The wheel is super quiet and you can only hear the sound of her feet on the plastic. Only bad thing I found so far is that the water bottle leaks and is small so all the water leaked out over night. This is not a big deal as I just used our water bottle that we had. I am so happy we found this cage. And wish it was sold in stores as I think it the best on the market and everyone needs one for there Syrian hamster.
Overall I think this a great cage. It was easy to put together. Seems very sturdy. The only think I foresee being a possible issue is how the bottom bin is built. There seems to be potential for urine to leak out the seems. Other than that I think it’s still worth the purchase. It’s a nice addition to my daughters room and is very elegant looking.
