As newbie Syrian hamster owners trying to find a larger replacement for our initial cage (which after reading up on the subject we deemed unsuitable due to its size) we were delighted to find “Hamster Homes”. Although a 90cm by 60cm cage would have been a step up we went for a 120cm x 60cm, with a perspex drop down front, and a PVC base. The process of ordering was easy and I was able to email any additional queries to Kate, who quickly responded. I also like that should the need arise in the future, I can order a replacement base. Our hamster home arrived before the timescale indicated and was easy to put together. Our hamster seems so much happier in his new home, and we are thrilled that he loves it as much as we do.
As we were having a perspex front, I wanted to affix our drinking bottle to the wooden side of our cage. For convenience, and to save on p+p, I ordered this water bottle and fixings at the same time we ordered our Hamster home. I didn’t realise until it arrived that it had a flat back so sits really nicely against the wooden side of our cage.
We ordered a large wheel at the same time as ordering our Hamster home for Deaky, our Syrian hamster. He loves his new wheel, I can see it is sufficiently large for him and his back isn’t arched, so I find that reassuring. My daughter likes the wheel as the only noise she can hear is the pitter patter of his feet. It is also a generously wide cork lined wheel, which means Deaky can change direction easily and is kind to his feet.
This was our second order as we decided to enlarge the space for our two guinea pigs. The cages bought a year apart are both of excellent quality, very well finished and really simple to put together. Kate provided valuable advice and help with helping us make an idea into reality of connecting 2 cages with an interconnecting door! We have two happy chilled piggies!
Great house for the guinea pigs, they enjoy spending time in it and on it. Part of a larger order that we’ve very happy with overall. One slight issue we’ve had is that no matter how hard we try the ladded won’t stay attached – as soon as one of the guinea pigs runs under it they manage to knock it off. However, it doesn’t stop them enjoying the roof as they just jump onto it instead! HAMSTER HOMES REPLY: Hi Ben. Thanks for making us aware of this issue. We’ve now changed the design to prevent the ramp from slipping off. Many thanks for your feedback!
i got this for my winter white dwarf hamster amber i am so happy with it the cage is so sturdy and looks beautiful i like how that you can replace the base i would highly recommend this product amber loves it too so much space and room for her to move around thankyou so much 🙂
I ordered this for my syrian so sturdy and easy to put together there was a fault with the lid but customer service was second to none a replacement was sent very quickly. I like if you need to you can replace the base instead of replacing the whole thing. I am very happy with my cage I highly recommend 🙂
I ordered this for my Russian dwarf and it is amazing. I ordered it customised to 120 x 50cm so it fits on my sideboard perfectly. Very easy to put together with excellent instructions. Jellybean now has loads of space to play and explore plus we can enjoy watching her with the Perspex front.
Really happy with large cage for our children’s first pets. Great good size for two guinea pigs and we also ordered the stand so it’s a nice height for interacting with and storing all their paraphernalia. Good quality product which will hopefully last for years (we put some pond liner down under fleece, with puppy pads in between, to protect the wood). Although it turned up without full instructions Kate was super prompt and helpful at rectifying this which shows all the benefits of ordering from an independent business and allowed us to get it built for Christmas (my 7 & 9 yds helped me build it). Will recommend to friends HAMSTER HOMES REPLY: Thanks for the great review Tim, despite having forgotten to put the instructions in the box! Glad you got it sorted in time for Christmas.
Having spent weeks researching which cage to get my two guinea pigs, I couldn’t be happier that I decided to order from here. The 150cm cage is the perfect size, gives the guinea pigs loads of room to run around & they have been popcorning constantly since they moved in. Kate was great with speedy replies and lots of answers to (the many) questions I had. The cage was so easy to put together and I done it all myself within about 10 mins! Lovely quality & looks great in my living room 🙂 Thank you again, 2 very happy piggies x
This is a perfect home for our two rescue guinea girl pigs. We have relatively small, but tall rooms in our house, so two tiers seemed a good way to go. It’s beautifully crafted, and was easy to assemble. We also got it on wheels, so during the working week the girls are wheeled into the home office, and at the weekend they’re wheeled into the family room at the back of the house. I’ve knocked one star off purely because the ramps, as beautifully made as they are, are too steep and slippery for our girls. We had to line them with carpet before they would use them, and occasionally need to put a block under the end of the larger ramp to lessen the gradient, or have to put two play tunnels (made of fleece) along the length of the ramp to encourage them to use it. That said, this may just be our girls and that other piggies wouldn’t be so fazed by it. We also need to install a balcony along the edge of the loft hatch as they keep rolling their rigid play tunnel into it and blocking it up. But it’s a fab cage, and everyone who’s seem it has admired it! HAMSTER HOMES REPLY: Thanks Rachel for the constructive feedback about the ramp – we’ve already made design changes as a result of your comments.
I ordered this cage for 2 guinea pigs and it is fantastic. There is so much room inside it for my piggies and it is much better than anything else I have seen. The cage and stand I ordered with it were easily assembled and another bonus is that cleaning it out is made very straightforward due to the fact that the base can by separated from the rest of the cage. I would highly recommend this cage to anyone considering buying it.
Hamster Homes service, creativity and craftsmanship is incredible. I ordered a customised 120*60cm Pygmy Hedgehog Cage for my hamster Ernie. I am so overjoyed with what we received and building was well explained with good instructions. Ernie is a very content ham who loves his Hamster Home and cannot stop exploring all the space it offers. Plus, the customisation of the drop down front really helps me to access Ernie easily and encouraged the taming process. Now Ernie runs straight up to me and I love seeing him so clearly through the perspex glass design. I will certainly be back for any small pet housing needs, thank you.
You’ve made one little pig very happy indeed! My adopted boar probably thinks he must have died and gone to piggy heaven 😉 He spent most of his life alone in a cold garage (he fell out with the other boys the breeder had), so it’s a massive change for the better for him. Hopefully a suitable lady friend will join him soon to enjoy the good life together. 😉 More practical infor: the cage was really easy to put together with all holes pre-drilled and all bolts and screws supplied. The wood is good quality, not brittle. I’ve also ordered a stand and everything fits together perfectly. Thank you from both myself and Moomin 😉
I ordered this home for my African Pygmy hedgehog a few months ago and I love it . It’s large enough that I don’t feel bad if she doesnt have a lot of time to free roam outside of the house , there’s so much room for her wheel, lots of snuggly corners and also foreage materials. I opted for the little hatch door so with supervision I leave it open and she climbs in and out as she pleases which I love. She had a two tier viv before this and she hated it and would never play, and I never knew when she wanted to get in and out whereas now it’s conpletely up to her ! I found hamster homes customer service great and they were quick and happy to help with my queries! I also love that you can buy a new bottom if need be without having to buy the whole house again. Thank oh very much 🙂 xxx
We purchased the extra large guinea pig cage for our three guinea pigs as we wanted them to have lots of space to run around .we are so pleased with the cage it is amazing and beautifully made and with Kate’s simple instructions it was so easy to put together .our piggies love their new home .
I am so happy with my guinea pig cage. It is very well made and much more attractive than plastic indoor cages I have had in the past. At first I opted for an open top cage, however I have 2 very inquisitive baby piggies who like to sit on top of their houses and reach up to the top of the cage. I contacted Kate and she gave me options of the different types of roofs she could make for me as a Bespoke order and once I had chosen it was soon on its way to me. I have 2 Guinea pig houses which are lovely. Quite often my 2 Guinea pigs will be together in one, but sometimes like their own space and I will find one in each. I would also recommend the haystack as it keeps the hay off the floor and also my Guinea pigs seem to love reaching up to it. So much more exciting than eating off the floor! Thank you so much for all you help and a lovely cage.
Bought this for my two guinea pigs and love it!!! Looks great in the lounge, they can roam free with the little door I requested to have put in the side and I can not rate it highly enough!!Beautifully made and worth every penny!! Thank you Kate for a beautiful, quality made house for my darling boys!
I originally ordered this 2 tier hutch, but then changed my order to a bespoke hutch 180cm x 60cm single tier – perfect for 3 guinea pigs. Its fantastic and great quality! Got absolutely super service throughout as well.
I brought this for my pygmy hedgehog with other bits recommended from hamsterhomes. This cage was exactly what I had been wanting and when it arrived it was so easy to put together and looks great. Its easy to maintain and gives my pet a lovely environment to live in. Thank you HamsterHomes.
We bought a cage last Christmas for our sons’ piggies And we’re thrilled with it! We were a bit worried what it would look like in the sitting room but they are lovely looking cages. As the pigs grew we felt they would like more space so we asked Kate if we could have ‘penthouse’. Communication about our order was great & Alistair & Jonny are very happy with the extension to their home …. once they’d got over the trepidation of using the ‘stairs’.
I shopped around for a while looking for a suitable guinea pig cage that would look nice and the choices were limited so I was so glad when I stumbled across this. I think the price is really reasonable when you compare it to other cages and it fits in nicely with my furniture. I got the solid back as it is up against a wall so it was nice to have the option and I think the idea you have come up with for cleaning the cage is fab, so many cage designs I looked at had reviews saying it was hard to clean or bedding was everywhere because the tray was too shallow, definitely not the case with this. Also great communication from Kate, she got back to me straight away and the cage was delivered when she said it would be in time for my Daughters Birthday 🙂
The cage is very straightforward to assemble and makes a really lovely home for Bean, my (grown-up) daughter’s hedgehog. Bean loves running around in it at night, and also has the little hog house which she is very happy with. We have three different types of substrate, which works very well with this cage – one for scrabbling around in, one for litter and one for bedding. The team are extremely helpful and responded very quickly with a couple of queries that i had in the first instance. Would definitely recommend this lovely natural product for a little hedgehog.
I used the customisation option to add a front opening panel to the open top guinea pig cage I ordered from Kate. It works beautifully! Kate is a pleasure to deal with and I can’t recommend her first class service enough. My piggies love it and so do I!
I ordered the guinea pig home and opted for the front opening mesh panel. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I can’t fault the workmanship or quality, it’s beautiful. Kate was helpful and patient right from the beginning even though I bombarded her with questions, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for all your help and an ‘A Class’ service, I would have no hesitation in ordering from you again.
I came across this site quite by accident and what a gem of a find. I purchased the Extra Large Home for small animals. The product arrived flat packed and despite the suggestion that an electric screw driver was required I assembled it myself without one, it took me about an hour. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. Once assembled it was pretty impressive and very robust. The quality of the product is amazing and it sits in the lounge of my home where it blends it like a piece of furniture. At the time I also ordered the large wheel and a ball, which unfortunately was damaged, however a text message later and it was replaced with no hassle. Again the quality of the wheel and the ball are brilliant. I would not hesitate to recommend this product or HH to anyone.
Lovely wheel – so sturdy and SILENT 😛 it looks great inside the wooden cage – so stylish and classy looking compared to bright wacky cages and squeaky/rattling wheels. My hamster loves his new wooden wheel – he uses it more than he ever used the other wheels we’ve bought – think it’s the gentle cork feel on his little paws. So happy with this wheel and would’ve been prepared to pay more than £15.50 for such a great product – one very happy customer 🙂
This cage honestly changed my life. I bought it for my Syrian hamster after looking through many options. I struggle with a chronic illness and often find that hamster cages are quite inaccessible and cause me difficulty when cleaning, such as the traditional wire cages. This cage changed all of that for me. Everything is so simple and this cage feels safe & secure. It is well built and worth every penny. Plus, it is simply gorgeous to look at.
I orderd this cage for my hamster as in his boring and very small plastic cage he was super unhappy and always tried to get out! This cage was very easy to put together, and once assembled looks lovely. Also this cage is very easy to clean out which is such a bonus as it was a nightmare before! My hamster is truely in hamster heaven. I’ve been able to see him exhibit natural behaviour like borrowing and digging which he never did before. He’s so much happier and will interact with me, he also sleeps a lot better as now he’s very tired after running around in his spacious cage all night long! I would definitely recommend this hamster home it’s the best indoor cage I’ve ever had.
We’re very happy with the new cage – it is well-built and easy to put together. I’m really pleased with the attractive design, much nicer than most other indoor cages. My daughter is finding it easy to clean out. Hamster homes have been a pleasure to deal with, kept us updated on a slight delay and upgraded us to 24 hour delivery as a result. Very pleased with both the product and the company.
This is a really well made house and more than big enough for our two guinea pigs. Kate was extremely helpful in rushing the order through to ensure it arrived in time for my daughters birthday, I also bought some other products and everything was lovely quality. Excellent service from Hamster Homes,
Fantastic product, and excellent craftsmanship. Bought the large hedgehog house for Victor and he loves it! I also bought the hedgehog bedroom for him which is perfect, and with the removable roof, allows for easy access to Victor’s bed-pouch. Thank you hamster-homes!!!
This is a fantastic new home for our 3 guinea pigs. They are very happy with it and it is a lot easier to clean out than our old cage with very little spillage of sawdust / hay. Looks lovely and enables us to watch the pigs (and them us). Really well made and easy to assemble. I also spent a long time researching cages and think this is the best indoor hutch available. Highly recommend.
Bought this cage for my Syrian hamster, and it’s amazing! Sturdily crafted, and very easy to assemble. Very happy with this purchase! It is great to see the little guy running around with so much extra space n.n Highly recommended. Many thanks to all @ Hamster Homes!!
Having searched various high street stores and online for a suitable cage for my daughters hamsters, I stumbled across hamster-homes and instantly knew we had a winner. I placed an order with a special note that we needed a 2 week turnaround as the cage was for my daughters upcoming birthday, Kate got in touch to reassure that this would not be a problem and duly delivered. Quite literally as she delivered all the goods herself by hand which was greatly appreciated. I must say, the photos are good on the website but I still don’t think they do the end product justice. The cage we bought was fantastic along with wheel, see saw etc, and the hamsters now have a very special lovely home. Would highly recommend to all. The products may cost a little more than the plastic versions offered elsewhere but you get what you pay for and you wont be disappointed.
I have been struggling to find a suitable indoor hutch for my rabbits for some time and I dedicded to contact Kate as I’ve had a guinea pig cage that she build and it’s absolutely brilliant. Kate provided me with a detailed design and was happy to accomodate my changes (even midway through building!). The result is great and is exactly what I wanted. The size is perfect (most off-the-shelf cages are far too small) and is over two floors so doesn’t take up too much space. I’m just giving it a coat of paint and it looks so much better than any hutch I’ve found anywhere else. I know exactly where to come when I need another rabbit enclosure and a summertime run may well be next on the list!
Asked Kate to make me a stackable cage for a new hedgehog to go with the hedgehog cage i’d already bought from her. Communication was amazing, we had a couple issues with couriers and parts (as it’s something she hadn’t yet made and they needed to be ordered specially) and she kept in touch every step of the way. The cage itself is great! It’s everything I needed and they look wonderful together. Thanks so much!
My two Guinea pigs love this house. It’s easy to assemble & clean. The top is removable for easy access to your pigs. Plenty of shape inside for them and the ladder can be used either side, which I wasn’t sure if they would used but within 5 minutes there was up & down exploring. Defiantly recommend.
My two Guinea pigs love this cage they haven’t stopped running about and happy squeaking since putting them in it. It’s beautifully made, easy to assemble & clean out. I opted for the mesh sides & lid which allows my children to watch the Guinea pigs without disturbing them. I spent along time researching cages suitable and I am so happy I found hamster homes could not recommend highly enough.
I ordered this house for my Guinea pigs, slightly larger at 150x60cm and it looks absolutely fab!! Really really well made, looks amazing in the house and really easy to put together. My Guinea pigs also love it. Kate was really efficient at responding to emails and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend the Guinea pig houses and hay rack too. It all looks lovely together and my Guinea pigs adore it all. Worth every penny!
Wow!This is a beautiful cage for my two skinny pigs. It is very well made, easy to put together and spacious. The perfect home for my piggies, they love it, popcorning around with glee! I added a perspex back panel (to go with the perspex front panel) via the customisation page, which really makes it not only a light, airy and warm home for my piggies, but also a feature piece in our lounge! First class product and first class customer service from Kate, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this house to anyone looking for a home for their small pet. Thanks Kate!
I recently purchased this for my Syrian hamster who quickly got bored of his pet store bought cage. This is perfect for him because not only is it much larger than “normal” cages, it gives you the option to change it around and keep boredom at bay. It is also really simple to clean out which is great. I added the Karlie Wonderland wheel which fits in nicely and is a really good quality wheel. Lastly I would like to take a guess and say climbing the mesh is one of my hamsters favourite things to do – because the front mesh opening is really large it gives him a great view, and it is nice to have a good view of my hamster having a good time! Thank you Kate!
My daughter was given Button, her pygmy African hedgehog for her 15th birthday and I can honestly say that we were at a loss as to how to look after her properly. After extensive research online we luckily came across Kate at Hamster Homes and ordered the lovely wooden hedgehog home that Button is very happily living in, along with the exercise wheel, toys and box that we also ordered. Everything is beautifully made and the cage was very easy to put together. Kate was extremely helpful and engaged from order to delivery and my daughter says that Button is happier since moving into her cage. All in all we’ve been really delighted and relieved by the home and other products as we feel now that Button is happily living in spacious comfort.
This ladder goes perfectly if you decide to have a second layer in your cage which is very handy to have to put food and treats on. It also means that the substrate used in the cage stays cleaner and tidier for longer. The ladder is very well made and a good width for small animals.
I have had this cage for 5 days now and I can honestly say I am so happy I made the purchase! I have a Syrian hamster called George who was in a basic pet shop cage and was very anti-social. I am so happy to say that since transferring him to this cage he seems to be so much happier. He loves running around like a crazy little fluff ball in his new mansion. Hamsters need lots of room to live in for them to be truly happy and have the best life and what Kate is doing is truly brilliant. I placed the order and received updates throughout. The cage is very very well made and also surprisingly easy to put together. When I received the package I thought there is no way I’m going to be able to do this on my own (I’m 21 and 4 foot 11). Half an hour later and George’s new home was ready for him to move in to! The instructions provided are really clear and easy to understand. If you are considering making a purchase from Hamster-Homes do it! You will not be disappointed and your little fur baby will be extremely happy too. Thank you Kate. 🙂
I had this stand customised by Kate for a reasonable price so that it was double as tall with a shelf underneath to neatly place my gerbil cage on. If you are buying the cage, I would recommend getting this stand as well as it looks brilliant once altogether! Definitely worth it
I bought this cage for my African Pygmy hedgehog along with the house you can see in the picture, after scouring the Internet endlessly I decided that this was the best cage I could find. And I was not wrong! This cage is absolutely brilliant and my hedgehog loves it. Made to a very high standard and comes with easy assembly instructions. If you want the best for your pet I would definitely recommend this for any small animal!
I got in contact about Kate making me a customised stand to be able to fit my gerbils underneath the “hamster home” I also purchased from her. It’s a shame I can’t post a picture of it on here for everyone to see because it is absolutely brilliant! I told her what I wanted and within a couple of days she had figured the design out and sent me sketches for me to choose which I wanted. Now all my animals are neatly contained in one unit. Very impressed with the of contact, you will not get better service than this. Highly recommendable!
Delighted with our new cage! Kate was really helpful and efficient with our order. The instructions for assembly couldn’t have been easier and the cage is beautifully made. The two mesh panels make it feel light and airy and we can see our piggies inside very easily. We went for the optional roof and a front opening panel, which operates nicely. Thank you so much!
I had the guinea pig cage made to a bespoke size of 140 cms long. The cage is good quality, easy to assemble, looks much nicer than a plastic cage in the house and my guinea pig seems to really like it. The top fully opens which gives good access for cleaning and handling guinea pig.
Thank you to Kate at the team at Hamster Homes. We are utterly delighted with our boutique home for Ozzy, the African Pygmy HedgeHog. The beautiful, hand crafted wooden hutch arrived flat pack by courier. It was easy to assemble – my son and I did it together ; ) – and looks and smells (wood) wonderful. Hamster Homes is a company after my own heart, producing thoughtful, beautifully made goods that will last a lifetime. We are happy, Ozzy is delighted and even Nutmeg the cat has taken a liking to watching what can only be described as ‘cat tv’ through the Perspex front as Ozzy performs HedgeHog Olympics in his very own stadium : )
We commissioned Kate to make us a new rabbit hutch and run for our two Netherland Dwarf/Lionhead cross bunnies. Kate was brilliant! The hutch and run is exactly what we had hoped for, and more. The design is waterproof, windproof, sturdy, comfortable and very spacious. We used to have to bring the bunnies inside the house whenever the weather turned too windy and wet in Edinburgh. Now, we can leave them outside in nearly all weather and they are very happy and comfortable. For the first time, the bunnies are content to be in the hutch and run for the long periods we are not able to let them hop about the garden. They each have plenty of space to hop about, they are able to spend time together but also to find their own sanctuary if they need time apart. Kate is a pleasure to deal with and goes well beyond the call of duty to ensure that everything is perfect. She is an absolute professional and, after years of hunting through hutch and run manufacturer’s websites and never being able to find what we were looking for, I would recommend this bespoke service to any small animal carers 🙂 Onie, Edinburgh
