Default Amazon essentials cage

I found this cage:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/AmazonBasic...a-403383736696

Which is around £50 or for £40 they do a version which would fit the minimum 80x50cm recommendation.

Iíve been looking for a few days now for a good cage and it seems a bit too good to be true for the price. Also the picture makes it look small?

Has anyone ever purchased this? Or have a review?

Donít worry, I found the problem is the bar spacing is about an inch. So a hammie would escape.

Trying to find Savic hamster heaven currently if anyone knows any selling, or anything similar it would be great to know!

I'm in Wiltshire and have an Alaska for sale.

Have you looked on Gumtree? I bought a number of Hamster Heavens there.

Iím 187 miles away from where you areÖ

How much are you selling it for and would you consider delivery? I totally understand if you donít want to post as I know itís a big thing.

I have had a look but nothing at all near me.

Ironically, I just found that deal! Tomorrow Iím going to check on my laptop to see if honey will discount it any further.

And oh my days those links are a LIFE SAVER. I have honestly been looking all day and the past few days trying to find names of suitable cages and thought of doing a bin cage, but then couldnít find a suitable box. This is amazing, thank you! ❤️

Hope you get better soon ☺️

I sent a cage once by courier and it arrived damaged so wouldn't do that again.

Thanks and you are welcome, if you have never bought anything from zooplus before you used to get 10% off your first order i think, but they may have stopped that now.

Yes, please don't traumatise poor Ria by making her post a cage again - it was a bit of a disaster when she kindly sent one to me for a friend

It is my first time on the website, but I canít see any deals? Iíll look online tomorrow and see if there is a code maybe.

Also, Iím sorry to have bought back traumatic memories! I know what postal services can be like and I wouldnít put you through that pain a second time 😂 thank you for the recommendation of your Alaska though, but definitely too far for me
