Default This cage is ridiculous

I know we have seen a lot of bad cages, it's nothing new but I think I may have found a contender for one of the worst lol (if my maths is correct it comes out to around 60~ square inches).

wow is all I can say to that. I don't understand how they can put that much effort into a pushing a product with a four and a half minute video without realising how bad the product actually is.

I think PicklesPets did a review of a similar cage to that one you listed. I think it was like 2 of them connected together with a divider so you could put 2 hamster or guinea pigs in it side by side. It's ridiculous that these types of cages actually exist for people to put their hamster in permanently. I saw an ad for a hamster cage online that maybe had 100 square inches of floor space, it was super vertical and the person in the ad said that their mom got it for one of her guinea pigs.. she was selling it because clearly the guinea pig took up the entire base and couldn't crawl around in the tubes made for hamsters.

How about this one... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Flamingo-Sp...8088881&sr=8-1

It has a slinky instead of a ladder. And a barred floor and barred wheel.

Absolutely dreadful. That first cage would be an OK transportation cage for vet visits but that is all.

I can't believe that anybody would think that something that small is acceptable for an animal to live its whole life in?

A lot of these cages come from China. China doesn’t have the best regards for animal welfare. I’ve seen a video where you can buy goldfish in a plastic ball filled with water marketed as a “necklace” over there...

Those poor hamsters that end up having to live in one of those cages. Those cages should not be on the market!
