I had a similar type cage by ferplast for Yummy, it's good for small Syrians and elderly hams

We have these cages for our boys (dwarf hamsters) and really like them, like FF we threw the accesories out as well. It's a good quality cage and have had no problems with it at all.

It comes in black now as well



The Grosvenor Large Rat and Hamster Cage with Shelf - Black - Little Pet Warehouse

I think it's a very nice cage. For a Syrian it might be a bit on the small side in terms of being able to fit things in - but I have seen some nice set ups in it. I think it would be good for a larger dwarf hamster (it's not too tall so less fall risks) or s small Syrian if set up to make the best use of space so you can have enough enrichment in it. Or as Drago says, for an older hamster.

I also think it would make a good travel/holiday cage as it comes apart and packs flat - so wouldn't take up a lot of space for transporting but a decent size for a hamster while away from home.

The advantages of the lower height are - less fall risks. But if you had an 11" wheel in it, it would mean not having much substrate at the wheel end and reducing the floor area even more a bit. Hence maybe better for a smaller Syrian or dwarf needing an 8" or 10" wheel, so you can still have a good depth of substrate.

Talking Re: Review: Little Friends Grosvenor Rat and Hamster Cage

Totally agree with the OP, mentions all the points I would say about this cage.

I've only had my latest Syrian hamster for a few weeks and with my old hamster having had a wire cage, I thought I'd try something different with the Habitrail.

The Habitrail turned out to be a complete nightmare, and even with an add-on pod and extra tunnels it wasn't big enough for a young and active hamster. The water bottle leaked and my hamster actually got stuck trying to drink from it.

I got this cage instead and I love it! There's so much more space for Bilbo to run around, he loves eating on the plinth and the dark area underneath it is good when he's nervous. Add-ons were rubbish as OP mentioned but there's loads of room to customise it - my cage now has a cool bridge, a see-saw and a chewable garden bench!

Habitrail is going in the bin for eternity. This cage is amazing.
