    So worth the wait, really happy with my little Bumbles cage! Fantastic looking and perfect hamster cage. I’m so grateful for all of Kate’s help and assistance with delivery to Jersey Channel Islands as a lot of English companies don’t ship to us. Thanks to everyone at

    Yesterday I finished setting up Tater’s new enclosure and she is now all moved in. I’m very happy with the quality of the cage – I have been recommending it to everyone including the FB group of veterinary professionals that I am in. Definitely worth the wait and lovely to be able to support a local UK business promoting better welfare standards.

    Thank you Kate for providing such wonderful products and for your outstanding customer service. Patch, our Syrian hamster absolutely loves his new home! Beautifully designed and so well made throughout, we could not be happier. Wishing you and the team a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Vince.

    Steven is a happy hamster. Got him out last night for the first time and he seems so much more hamstery- probably because he has all natural behaviours on tap now. I’m so relived. Thanks again for providing locally made hamster homes. We’re so happy with his little world.

    I am so happy with this cage. I had it custom made to be 100cm by 60cm for my hamster. It is beautifully made, and the instructions are super easy to follow to put it together. It has so much room to make the perfect home for your pet, and it is also a good height to fit correct size wheels and platforms etc. It looks great too, much nicer than barred cages. Really impressed!

    Thanks Kate and everyone at Hamster Homes. We bought this for our daughters ageing Syrian Hamster after she researched how bad her existing cage was. Ordering was simple and comms from Kate were excellent. It was delivered ahead of schedule. Easy to assemble, robust and durable providing excellent view and access. Peaches has had a new lease of life as a result of her new home (and sends her thanks). Thanks again, Dave

    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. 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.

    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 🙂

  9. Deborah

    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.

  10. Georgia

    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.

    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

  12. Vicki

    My Pygmy hedgehog loves it. So light and big, very easy to keep clean aswell. Might have to treat hamster next !!!!

  13. Donna

    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!

  14. Nicola

    This is absolutely amaaaaaaaaaaazing! Such a fantastic product. I wish I could give it 100 stars! Delivery was arranged exactly on the day I asked for it as well 🙂

  15. Karen

    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.

  16. Melissa

    Great home for my Hedgehog- he’s only a baby still so it does indeed seem super large! But It’s great quality and looks lovely. Thanks!

  17. Emmy Rhoslyn

    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.

    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!!!

  19. YVONNE

    Beautiful product and a fantastic home for our hedgie – Looks great in our home and was very easy to assemble – I highly recommend this product to any fellow hedgehog mummy and daddies.

    Lovely wooden home for our African pygmy hedgehog. Easy to put together and is very well made. Good communication from Kate and great customer care.

  21. Brenton

    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!!

  22. Zoe

    Great cage for an African Pygmy Hedgehog, perfect size and the wood is a great quality! Really good customer service. Highly recommend 🙂

  23. Lara

    Great quality product, very easy to assemble. Looks so much nicer than plastic cages and gives a more natural environment for your pet. My hedgie, Quilliam, is very happy with his new home 🙂 Thank you Kate

  24. Anna

    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!

  25. Hannah

    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.

    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. 🙂

    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 : )
