Default Deep bedding screens for savic plaza

Hi, been a long time!

I just found these screens made for the savic plaza to allow for deep bedding & to reduce the height which is a bit of an issue if you want to keep dwarf hams in this cage. I have thought about buying a savic plaza & putting cardboard around the base but these would be a much better & more permanent solution although not cheap they might well be worth considering so I thought I would post the link here as it may be helpful.

Hello cypher! So lovely to see you back!

I've cut out those panels myself from a sheet of acrylic and attached them to a Plaza. They are a great idea and look so much better than cardboard and they don't get chewed up.

Hello Cypher I saw those recently too - they have a lot of good perspex solutions for cages. It's a great idea. I did do the cardboard round the inside for our robo - about 10" deep substrate and less height to the roof - but it didn't work for our syrian! He just shredded all the cardboard! Perspex would be much better.

Hi Ria & Serendipity 😊
I guess it would be easy enough to make your own Ria, but its a good option if DIY isnt your thing, I feel a bit past it with DIY these days!
I had visions of chewed cardboard & substrate all over the floor too Serendipity which put me off a bit. I meant to mention that he does them for the mamble & alaska too but forgot.

It's a great service - I also balked at the idea of cutting perspex and getting it to fit! It also looks nicer than cardboard.

What hams do you have at the moment?

Good to know someone has tried them & they worked well Luna, Im getting tempted to buy a plaza now!

Serendipity, I just have one now, my little Zak a very sweet little dom spot boy, hes three & a half now so every day is extra special.
Sadly my other two both went to the bridge at beginning of the month within 5 days of each other, Im still quite shocked tbh but glad to have my precious Zak still with me.

Three and a half is a grand age. So sorry about the two passing so close together - Zak must be even more special now. Are you looking for another hamster while thinking about the Plaza?

I have two now. I still prefer the Savic Mickey 2XL/HH for build quality but the 100 cm is a better size.
