I've had a few different cages over time, and they were all a PAIN to clean! One of the main things I was looking for in a new cage was something that'd be easy to clean, and this cage definitely fits the bill! It's SO easy, you just take the clear top part off (which doesn't ever put up a fight! There's a spot on each side that you push in & then it picks right up!) and from there you can just dump the shavings from the bottom tray part in the trash. SO easy!
It came with accessories, which was nice. I had the loft in for a while, but ultimately decided to take it out. The ramp to get up there kept falling off and my hamster would climb up the bars to get to her loft, which I didn't like because I'm overly worried about her falling. So I put in a little house I already had and it works just as fine! Everything else it comes with is great. The wheel is nice, and definitely the quietest one I've had but it's not silent by any means.
The only thing keeping me from giving this a full 5 stars is the size. It's much smaller than I was expecting, and I really wouldn't recommend it for a syrian/teddy bear hamster. I have a teeny-tiny little robo hamster so it's not too bad, and I take her out often to run in her ball or play in her playpen. Other than that, it's perfect! Nice looking, good quality (there are barely any signs of wear after having it for so long! My hamster doesn't chew her bars though) affordable, and easy to clean!
If you're into tubes there are 2 separate spots for them. I'm not sure of the size but I bought tubes from a different brand and they fit nicely & weren't overly challenging to put on.
I included some pictures for reference. -Size of the food bowl, which is so big my robo has to sit inside of it to get her food! -How the cage looks once it's set up. -And a panorama of the inside. (Which is why the wheel looks messed up)
-Protection from drafts
-Easy to clean
Reviews on other brands seemed hit or miss, and quite frankly, when I viewed the Crittertrail cages in-store, they seemed flimsy. I bought this one even though it had no reviews, but other Hagen/Habitrail products were well rated. I'm not dissapointed.
This cage is the same as Hagen/Habitrail's Habitrail Classic cage, but with nicer colors. It's hard to see in the product photos, but the construction is such that the white bottom sits below a clear plastic band. The clear plastic extends up the sides as well, and the center is made of wires. The opening in the front of the cage is made from clear plastic. This design serves several purposes:
-Clear plastic is easier to see through than the red, blue, or other colors found on many other cages.
-A good mix of wire for ventilation plus plastic for protection from drafts.
-Wires provide flexibility in where you mount the wheel, the loft and water bottle.
-The entire upper assembly (wire and clear plastic) disconnects from the white base for easy cleaning
-The white base plus clear plastic provides a good 2-3 inches of depth to help prevent bedding from flying out.
The Loft: The loft is made from 3 pieces. The white plastic base clips onto the wires, and has a deeper well for the nesting box. There's an orange lid for the nesting box to help provide some protection from light and drafts. The ladder is solid plastic, and is designed that it can be mounted at various angles.
The Wheel: The wheel is not silent even though it's made completely from plastic. It does squeak, and I'm going to try to find something appropriate to oil it with. The wheel has a slot in the center of it to allow "stuff" to come out. Since it mounts inside the cage, you don't deal with any of the "stuff" going on your floor or furniture.
Water Bottle: Seems to be a step up from many included in other habitats. It's a plastic bottle with metal spout and ball tip. It holds 2 ounces (60ml). Doesn't leak very much - maybe an extremely slow drip. It's plastic mount can be placed anywhere on the metal wires.
The Dish: The dish is translucent orange like the other accessories, is fairly sizable, and widens at the bottom to make it pretty stable. It does not lock down into place anywhere.
Tube Connections: There's only two on this cage - one on each side near the bottom.
The Door: The door has to be latched in a specific way, since it's plastic that snaps under the wires. The small lock doesn't really "snap" into place, but provides a bit extra help in securing the door. If done wrong, I could see an escape.
Overall, this seemed to satisfy most of my criteria, in that it's easy to lift the top off the base for cleaning, it can be expanded, has a decent wheel and water bottle, plus a loft/nesting area. The partial wire construction won me over vs. the Ovo habitats which are exclusively plastic. While not perfect, it's a good starter cage and I feel I made the right choice for us.
