Looks a bit small, but hard to tell from that photo. A hamster has to spend its whole life in a cage, so best to get one as big as possible.

I got one of these just before xmas and i was disapointed. To undo the doors you haver to bend the wires to get them open and after a week one of the bars was found on the carpet. We now have a tin over the hole after finding the damn thing in the wardrobe.

It is not tall enough for a Syrian Hamster. The whole thing is very flimsy.

cold from me.

I have a rat in mine and its plenty big enough. My daughter has 3 mice in hers and again no problems. The drinks bottle, wheel and food bowls would be about the cost of the whole thing so why cold? Also the platforms could go in another bigger cage. Geez, what do you want for £10.99?

I find it very hard to believe a full grown rat could live in that cage. Initially we put the Syrian Hamster in the cage but he was unable to stand up fully when he was on the platforms. He was also too big to squeeze comfortably up the holes. We tried the Syrian as there was a pic of one on the box but it soon became obvious he was too big. He was too big for the house as well.

I can see in your pic that your rat cant stand up un the platform. The platforms take up a lot of room so i assume he can only stand up in the center of the cage. A Syrian Hamster is smaller than a rat and the cage is too small for him so surely its too small for a rat. I think a lot of people will say it is cruel.

Why would you go against what the cage was designed for and put a rat in it, clearly the house, wheel, ladders are not designed for a rat. Id guess/hope that if you had tried to buy this cage at the same time as your rat you would have been refused it. If you dont want to pay money for a rat cage... dont buy a rat.

The way you have copied the quote looks like i made the post.

The picture posted makes the cage look taller than it is. There is no floor space in this cage. If you put the house under a platform then you have to raise the platform up to fit it in then you have to raise the next one up or the chute wont fit properly. If you look at the Op's picture you can see her rat cannot stand up on the upper platform.
The instructions tell you to have at least 11 bars height minimum between floors. That is 5". Our Syrian couldnt stand up so unless Soziberry has a stunted rat it is cruel to keep one in there, maybe they didnt realise.
My sister has a rat and his tank is about 3ft long, he loves running about in it. In the cage there is no room for toys or anything.

Please say that you will get a bigger cage.
You said your sister has 3 mice in hers, i think a rat may be a fair bit bigger than 3 tiny mice.

I said I have a rat in, as I assumed it would be ample for a hamster. My new cage is reserved but a £10.99 cage for temp use is better than none. That is why I can't understand why voted cold, its a spare/starter cage for £10.99

So you had a rat, bought a temporary cage that is too small while your 'proper'cage is reserved to buy?
Funny way to go about it. I dont know how you thought a pic of a dwarf hamster on the box would mean a rat can live in the cage. Obviousley you can now see the cage is too small now.

Some people can be very short sighted when it comes to animals and i feel very strongly about cruelty. Not saying for one moment that you was being cruel, maybe misinformed.
Rats, and other animals need lots of room to move about in as their whole life is spent behind bars. They are a big rodent and if you put them next to a hamster you will see the massive size difference. There is plenty of info to be found on the net if you need it. Good luck with your hamster. :)

IT IS A CAGE FOR £10.99
Why is this so cold? Regardless how I am using my cage, there is nothing wrong with it or my daughters

Beware, hamster cages should only have vertical bars. I bought this cage last week and my hamster climbed to the top, then went along the top holding onto the bars, fell and died. Don't buy it.
