My dwarf hamster loves this!
on July 20, 2006
I just bought this last week, and so far- it's doing a great job.
-The bedding stays inside the cage, even though she loves to burrow.
-It's easy to attach fun-nels to (although my pet wants nothing to do with them- she's either strange for a dwarf hamster, or a bit uncertain, being only a baby)
-The cage is petite and doesn't take up much space. However, she still has plenty of room, even with a small igloo in there.
-It's well ventilated and secure, so she can breathe easily without me fearing her escaping.
-The roof is easy to remove in order for cleaning
-I ended up throwing out the water bottle after a couple of hours because she couldn't figure out how to use it. I bought her a separate water bottle and she was very parched, drinking for several minutes before settling down. I heard others don't have problems with it though, so again, it could be that she's so young and gets frustrated easily.
-I think the food bowl, while in a convenient place, is sort of small, but that's only my personal opinion.
-The "silent and safe" wheel is safe, but you could never call it silent. At all. I always know when she's awake (around 3 a.m. every night) because her running wakes me up.
-I wish there was another door on the side of the cage, or that there was a removable tray, but that's just me being picky.
After reading other product reviews and getting feedback from other hamster owners, I still say this is worth the price and the easiest design with the least bit of fuss. It may be a bit too small for a regular sized Syrian hamster, but for a dwarf, mouse, or gerbil- it's perfect!
