Default Re: Cage/Peer pressure on social media

I know what you mean though. Boromir and many other hamsters on here lived to a very good age, very happily, with an 8" wheel and an 80 x 50 ish cage. As Ghosts says - other things are important too - bonding, attention, out of cage time.

My ideal cage size doesn't exist. Sometimes 80cm isn't quite big enough and 100cm is too big/tall. I guess my ideal cages would be a variety of different sizes of hamster heaven at 80, 90 and 100cm. All with big front doors. And them come with a shelf and a house like the ones in the Barney.

Sushi I added hemp mat round the bars of the Savic Plaza to make the base deeper. Not because I wanted a deeper base, but to reduce the overall height I got the idea from people having done that with cardboard.
