Default Help with new cage.

I'm getting a Syrian next week and I need some cage help in the form off I don't know what cage to get!
I have a budget of £60 and floor space of no more than minimum requirements because of space issues.
I don't fancy the Alaska because of bad bar reviews but can anyone give me some advice?
Thank you!

If you're not keen on the Alaska (I haven't found the bars to be a problem even though it isn't the strongest cage) then within that price range the barney is about the best although it may be too big for your space, the Hamster Heaven would fit both your price & space but I think it's too small for a syrian & you'd do better with the Alaska.

I've watched a lot if YouTube videos showing how ridiculously flimsy the bars on the Alaska are, they bend and are often bent out of shape which is a shame because it's a cheap cage with good space. But I'd be constantly worried about escapes. I have a cat.
I could go a little bigger in length but not width.

The Little Friends Grosvenor seems ok. It's 77 by 48 so only three cm smaller than recommended guidelines.

Bear in mind you are going to need an large wheel, possibly up to 12"/30cm for a fully grown syrian so be sure to get a cage with enough height to allow for that plus a good depth of substrate, I'm not sure the Grosvenor would be tall enough.
