Thanks for the quick reply. However now I've looked into the Savic Hamster Heaven and am pretty sure I'll buy that instead. What do you think?

There are lots of good reviews for it in this section. The one thing I'd suggest is maybe blocking up the penthouse bit as it's not very well ventilated and if you're still getting to know your hamster you don't want them hiding up there all the time

Hi Hope u all had a good Xmas..and hope Knotty was pleased with the Alexander,u said u were setting it up on Xmas Day! I'd quite like to be snuggled up in an Alexander in this weather..I guess our hams have a pretty good life.
Re keeping hams warm in winter....I expect most people have nice modern warm places,but I live in an old cottage which can be slightly draughty,even with dbl glazing,so I have Hum's cage next to a radiator, his bedroom is alongside,and I insulate the base of the cage with honeycomb blanket around the outside of the base.As the central heating is off all night I have a small Bambino oil radiator close up to Hum's bedroom,which I put on a low setting,2,that way he's just right.You can tell if they're warm enough by feeling their paws when you lift them out! Now Hum's always nice and warm.I always have plenty of soft bedding so he can make a really warm nest.That fluffy stuff seems really good. I also put a blanket across one side of the cage for extra warmth.I leave the room's curtains open at night so the little man can see what he's doing! My relatives said he looks much better now than when I first got him.Must post a pic soon,he's so cute..he has developed a lovely coat now(he's a longhair).

Talking Re: Alexander Cage - recommended and review

I saw this cage review and many others on the alexander cage and i really like it, I'm planning on getting a Syrian hamster after my 3 dwarf hamsters now and i am thinking about getting this cage, my only question is that can you move the different levels to different heights in the cage or do they have to be one height only?

You can move the two end shelves up and down - they can sit on any level that has bars. While they're a bit stiff to move up and down, they do just sit on the bars (no glue, screws etc.) so you can move them as often as you like.

There is also a shelf which bridges the gap between the two - totally optional whether or not you want to use it, but if you do then it does mean that realistically the two end shelves have to be at the same height.

I've ordered the Alexander cage for my Syrian and it should be here tomorrow or the next day and I'm honestly so excited. I've wanted one for so long but put it off as my hamsters current cage was ok.
Reading this has made me look forward to it even more so.
Can't wait to set it up and put her in it

Thanks to all the helpful reviews and guidance we selected an Alexander cage for our hamster, Milku, and haven't regretted the choice.

I've uploaded some photos of it to show that it's a great roomy cage.

We have posted a more detailed review on line, but I can't quite get the link added here. It's on:
