Exclamation Affordable Large Cages UK Dec 20

Hi all,

I have just bought a new hammy and was planning to have her in the Alaska I had stored round my Nans, I have found out she has since chucked it and I canít get another in Zooplus as they no longer sell them.

Can anyone let me know where I can get an affordable large cage from at present?

Hoping not to pay more than £30.00

Having a job finding anything on Amazon or eBay, all just ridiculously small plastic tubey nightmare deathraps for silly money!

Iíve got her in a decent sized one from letís at home for the time being with some modifications to make use of the space better- but need to upgrade ASAP and keep this one as an emergency cage/cleaning cage.

Best

Is it for a Syrian or other hamster species?

I think you can still get an Alaska from German Zooplus (Zooplus.de). Only till the end of the year though.

I've bought a number of good second hand cages off Gumtree lately. Have you tried there?

Unless you are looking 2nd hand I don't think there is another cage around £30, you could see if petsathome reduce the price of the savic plaza or their other larger (online bought) cages, after xmas day

Thanks all so much, German zooplus do sell the Alaska but have cancelled my order because all their deliveries are being turned around- I’m assuming this is because of tier 4 restrictions. So but gutted as one was within my grasp! I’ll have a browse on gumtree so fingers crossed. She is proving quite hard to tame so eager to give her all the room she deserves as I think it may help in that area also.

My syrian lives in a Skyline Barney cage. I like it alot.

I think I got it from Zooplus and it's £50 with free delivery. It's over your budget but I think it's a great cage. It comes with a large shelf, a latter and a house. It also comes with a wheel but it's too small for a syrian so I had to chuck it. Plenty of space for a proper sized wheel though. It measures 100 X 54 X 45 cm

Good luck!

Agree - the Barney and Alaska are the two cheapest decent sized cages for Syrians. I think Amazon sell the Alaska actually. I saw it there once but not sure what it was called (something other than Alaska).

Yes, Amazon does sell the Alaska for around £55.
