lots of toys to keep them occupied such as play tubes, and hay. I have a baby bunny and I have a foam mat under her (that babies use) so that she doesnt sleep on the floor.

Chinese dwarf hamsters are quite small, but energetic. This means you can get them any cage you want, but if you get them a big cage, put lots of toys in it so they do not feel intimidated by it, since they are in fact prey animals. Just keep in mind that ALL hamsters need a minimum of 360 square inches!

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.

Well for one hamster the min. floorspace for a cage is 360 square inches. Robos are smaller so they will need a smaller wheel (make sure that it's not wire or mesh it can cause bumble foot) or you can get the flying saucer they sell those at Petco). But Robos are VERY Energetic Hamsters So they need More Floor Space. I Recommend a 20 Gallon Tank Or Bigger (Wait Til Petco Has There Dollar Gallon Sale). Or you can build a DIY Bin Cage. Lok up videos on good and bad hamster cages. :D and remember that if you get 2 Robos dubble up the size of the cage. :D

Rabbit rescues recommend that you have at least 4x4 feet of floor space for your rabbit, so any of the petstore cages you will see are too small. But you can make one using NIC grids or as other people call them storage cube grids. Or You can buy a dog x-pen those can be cheap depending on where you get them ( I know that Petco sells them :) ). But be shure that if you get a x-pen that it's at least 36" high. Or you can just let your rabbit free range your house and/or your room or wherever your planing on keeping your rabbit. :D

I recommend a C&C cage! These are not actual cages - you have to make them from wire shelving grids called cubes and corrugated plastic called coroplast. These are much cheaper than the cages you can buy, and so easy to build and customizable.
Make sure the cage is large enough - 10sq ft should be sufficient for 1 or 2 rabbits. Also, rabbits need hours of exercise daily - make sure you can commit to this! I think Petco have runs avaliable to buy that are big enough, but free range floor time around the house should be even better.

I would recommend a dog crate as a rabbit cage. I know it sounds weird but it works. All you need to do is put blankets down instead of bedding. It is cheaper anyways to use blankets instead of bedding, you will save $220 a year. Dog crates tend to be bigger for less money. You can spend $30 on a small dog create and only get a gerbil cage for that price.

Rabbits make great pets. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a "good cheap quality cage". You either get cheap or quality. This is the cage I would recommend and with the holidays coming I'm sure you'll be able to find sales, which is where you can get the quality cages for less:
http://www.petco.com/product/113412/Trixie-Natura-One-Story-Rabbit-Hutch.aspx

Keep in mind that is for an average or dwarf rabbit. The larger bunnies will not fit in there comfortably. I recommend getting a dwarf bunny they make great pets.

My advice would be to get a rabbit playpen, clean living makes one with a cover so your rabbit won't escape, altogether this would be about 40 dollars, another option is a c & c cage which is a great cage you build yourself. for a 2 by 3.5 by 2 feet (which is the smallest size you should ever use for one rabbit) it costs 64 dollars which is really good for all that space. however if you will want to invest in a top which will cost about 12 dollars or you could make your own. Good luck!

Question

What cage is good for rats?

I have had rats for a few years. I currently have one doe and am planning on getting two more does very soon. I currently have a Rat Manor and it has been wonderful. It lasted for years. Now it's old and I'm looking to upgrade to a bigger cage. I can't seem to find any that are suitable for rats. They all seem to have bar spacing that is too big. I don't want my girls getting out! I'm very frustrated!

I would recommend getting a Critter Nation or a Ferret Nation. Although a Ferret Nation has 7/8 bar spacing so if thats too big you can either get a Critter Nation or just line it with chicken wire.

Well the actual hamster could be found in Petco or in rehoming ads for between 5-15 dollars. Then for a nice habitat, which i recommend using a 20 gallon long or bigger aquarium with a ventilated lid, another 30 dollars. Then for a few toys budget 20-30 dollars. for a good wheel, about 10 dollars. Food, bedding, water bottle around 15-25 dollars (i recommend carefresh-safe to consume and very absorbent-great for rabbits, guinea pigs, and others-it is more expensive, but keeps habitat clean which is important as teddys contract wet tail easier than other hamsters.) Keep in mind that the Teddy is actually just a version of the Syrian, and is a relatively large hamster and needs a large habitat-these hamsters can get stuck in tubey habitats like crittertrail. Also, do not buy your hamster hay despite what some might say. Sorry for the long answer-good luck with your new furry friend!

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!
