View Full Version : My bin cage/habitral for small syrian

Hi, just though I'd show my handy work (well my design, hubbys handy work! :mad:) on our bin cage for our late small syrian Rory, we wanted him to have lots of space to run around but still have a wheel. We got two under bed storage boxes as they provided a large area without too much wasted height. The then incorparated the habitrail ovo suite with the wheel in as it was a perfect sized wheel for him. He loved it :)

It looks great :)

hehehe, thanks all. I can't take credit for his name though! I got him from Just for Pets and they'd named him. Its because he had a nice fluffy mane and yawned a lot so it looked like he was roaring! lol. It fit him so well I didn't change it. :)

AAH! Thats Great:D! I bet its a tough job too clean though... :mad:

its not too bad actually. I do it in layers, the habitrail section comes off and the other too its just removing all the bits than then it can be emptied and cleaned. its worth it too to see a happy little face prancing round in thier palace :)

wow that is a fab set up you have there, very lucky hamster to have that as his home.

I tried to do a bin cage once and it was rubbish!

Thanks Purple_x :) We gave it a thorough soaking and once dry, sprayed it with animal disinfectant so get rid of Rory's smell and its now become Smokey's home. He seems to really love it :) It seemed a shame for it to sit empty but its always so hard to see another hamster in a cage that belonged to a hamster that's passed.
I've got some really large pieces of cardboard from work last week so I'm going to have a go at making some toys next weekend!
