I wouldn't be able to connect it to the previous cage because it doesn't have the tube attachments at allSkratikans said:I like the first one as well, are you going to connect it to your previous cage...i bet you they would love that
What type of cage would u suggest?Neko-chan said:They both seem pretty nice. Personally however I won't use cages with those type of bars anymore for Dwarf hamsters... I have had hamsters get their legs caught in those bars multiple times. The last time I was sure my hamster had a broken leg-- she had gotten stuck in the bars and when I entered the room she was hanging upside-down in the air by her leg! Turned out she just sprained and badly bruised it luckily. After that I stopped using that type of cage for good!
you should never let them walk on exposed wire like that, they will get their feet caught, and worse they will get bummblefoot...which is painful...you should put some paddingNeko-chan said:If you can find any with the bars that look like the cage bars in this photo, that kind is less likely to get their feet caught:
I agree with you about the tubes. Cause my sisters hamster had a huge network of tubes one day it go stuck in one of the tube in a really weird position and die. I would build a cage but I don't have the tools to do so and the cage sits on a book shelf in my living room/kitchen.fur_ball said:i personally dislike both, i dont like the fact, that the tubes lead to everthing, the wheel, water bottle, bed,etc. it means when the hamstre gets older, it has to struggle up them, to reach its whereabouts. my 2 robovorski hamsters were in a 10 gallon tank, with home made wooden stands with ladders and ropes and tubes for them to access all areas. of corse, some people have kept their hamsters in these types of cage and will say that are fine, but im just giving my opinion, i dont like them. i suppose you could move the wheel/bad/food/etc lower down or modify the cage. but then its just as good as buying aplain cage and builoding it up from scratch, thats what i like to do,
