I love the grosvenor cage. A big one will be even more lovable. It is great how the whole top lifts up. It is also very sturdily built.

I'm interested to know how much they will cost. I think the Savic Plaza is still a better option for a 100cm cage due to the large front door but maybe these ones will be more affordable.

Bigger Versions Of Our Popular Cages!
Excellent find - just looked properly. The 100cm Grosvenor is 54cm deep - same floor space as the Barney cage used to be. Yet also not too tall at 39cm - so more like the height of the hamster heaven. It looks like it will be a good option. The downside being it is top opening only. Some hamsters would be ok with that, some may not be (and some owners too!).

The new bigger Langham is the same floorspace again, has a couple of smaller doors on the front which is a bonus. But far too tall for a hamster - it would probably need a full level but still another 100cm option.

Lets face it there is a shortage of 100cm cages since the Barney and Alexander became unavailable.

Now if they would just do one with a large front opening door!

Exactly!!

I had a Grosvenor but donated it because of the top opening door.
Still, the 100cm length and low height is a very good option for a dwarf.

Little pet warehouse have another 100cm cage - the Kensington. It looks weird! Also doesn't look safe for hamsters to me - those gaps in the end panels they could get paws caught and end up hanging by a leg.

The Grosvenor 100 is well and truly available at little pet warehouse now - in black or grey.

That Kensington is very weird indeed. The side panels. Why? Is it even possible to attach a bottle, shelf or corner shelf? And the colour borders onto pink, ugh. What were they thinking.

Thought I would add the IKEA Komplement cage here too:

IKEA Komplement Cage1 forum.jpg

Build Video:
Ikea Komplement Hamster Cage | Full DIY Tutorial - YouTube

Approx 96 to build or maybe a little bit less.
Tools you will need are a drill, saw, screw and staple gun

Cage internal measurements: 96cm (length) x 57cm (width) x 55.5cm (height) = 5,475 sq cms = 848 sq inches.

Cage external measurements: 100cm (Length) x 61cm (width) x 57.25 (height)

I've just emailed regarding the Kensington and asked what the reasoning is behind this design.
