No. Guinea pigs do not like ramps, believe me. Try to find a cage with 1 level. Plus, if there's little holes for tubes or anything, guinea pig are too big to fit through most of them.

I would say that you could probably fit in 3 to 4 rats, as the CN is a large cage.

What's the best cage for a (fairly large) syrian hamster?

I want a cage, I was thinking of getting the Qute cage because of the good reviews, but when i searched it elsewhere the reviews were all horrible and to be honest i didn't know of the wires on that cage being the floor so I guess its a out for me. I guess its quite small too.

Guinea pigs are expensive. You need a cage, I recommend a c and c cage, about $60. You need bedding or fleece ($30 a month). You need high quality pellets, I reccomend oxbow. ($5 month). You need hay, about $5 a month, and you also need daily veggies ($30 a month) You also need bowls, toys a scale to weigh your piggies, a water bottle, hidey house etc. ($100)
The most expensive thing is vet care. I have spent thousands on vet care when my piggies need it.

I think you can see that keeping a Piggie is a big commitment. hopefully, the price of everything will turn you off from having a pig. There are too many people that get piggies, then realize that they arent what they wanted.

Build a C and C cage! Most pet store cages are too small for one, let alone two piggies. C and C cages are made of corrugated plastic and metal grids sold as cube storage units. Google it. For two you will need at least A 2x4.

I think your best bet is a tub cage. They are easy to clean, have great ventilation, and you can always see your piggie. Guinea pig cages on the market today are pieces of junk. You should always get something bigger than smaller. I suggest the KAYTEE Rabbit home or the KAYTEE deluxe Guinea Pig home. Good Luck!

You need 360 sq in per hamster. I would recommend a few bin cages. Also, what type of hamsters are they? Syrian hamsters are solitary and should live alone.

If they're teddy bear hamsters you should get three different cages. They are solitary animals so they like to be alone. But dwarf hamsters can live together. They need at least 4000 sq inches.

Most pet store cages are too small, especially for 3 piggies. Build a C and C cage! They are made out of corrugated plastic and metal grids sold as cube shelving. Google it. For 3 girls you would need a 2x4 or 2x5, at least 12 sq ft, but that's the minimum.

Question

Would the WARE chew proof four story cage be suitable for a guinea pig?

We have the starter guinea cage now and it just doesn't seem like it's enough room for her to run around and play in. She likes to get on top of her igloo house and look around so we thought a higher cage would be ideal. Also, we have limited space for the cage so going up instead of out would be best for us. Any other ideas would be great!

Are any of these cages suitable for a headgehog?

A hedgehog cage should have a minimum of a 24"x24" base, a wire spacing of no more than 1/2", and enough room for a hide, large plastic wheel, large food dish, and would preferably be multi-level.

None of the pet store cages are suitable to a hedgehog. Make a diy cage! A few examples is the popular bin cage. OR you can buy a tank at least 20 gallons, but if you want your hedgehog to have an enriching life get a 50 gallon. I highly recommend the bin cage since the tanks are really annoying when you clean it.
