Question by paintedrain2: What’s the best cage for a Syrian hamster?
I have a new foster hamster (long story short: Guy bought her as ”live entertainment” for his cats. The cats weren’t amused!)
Anyways, she’s in a temporary cage that isn’t good for long term use (more of like a traveling cage).
She’s a golden Syrian hamster, so I know she can get pretty big, and I’m just wondering what’s the best cage(s) other hamster owners have found? Preferably something sold at Petco or PetSmart.
I don’t want a cage with a lot of plastic. I want a nice, wire cage with plenty of room for accessories, lots of air ventilation/circulation and for an appropriate sized wheel so Cosmo can run with comfort.
Jay: The cage I’m currently keeping Cosmo in, is a wire cage, and she doesn’t chew on the bars at all. When she’s not sleeping, she’s running on the wheel or eating. She’s not a bar-chewer (luckily. I have had one in the past that was like that!)
Everyone: I plan on a wire cage being a requirement for her. No tanks, and no cages made mostly out of plastic.
I’m asking about specific cages that you’ve favored as hamster owners.
Answer by jay
dont get a wired cage it will knaw it all night and you wont get any sleep lol, plus once it had knawed the paint part off it starts to go rusty. I say the rotastack ones are best because you can always buy new things to add onto it and it keeps the hammy amused
