The Critter Nation is a little pricy but still one of the best rat cages out there. With 2 rats, you could get either the Single or Double.

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!

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!

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.

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!

Yes, Petco do sell dwarf hamsters, but not purebred Campbell's Russian Dwarf hamsters - I recommend doing some extra research on this before buying. You could even adopt.
It's best to buy a dwarf hamster food in a pellet form instead of a mix as mixes tend to lead to fussy hamsters and they may leave out the nutritional bits.
As for bedding, Carefresh is the best. It's dust extracted and soft, which is great for small animals and rodents.
You can use simple toilet roll tubes as tunnels, or buy natural wooden ones. Little houses and climbing frames are great.
Make sure the cage is big enough - 60x40cm is the minimum. Any smaller and pairs of dwarf hamsters may fight, and the hamster won't have enough room to run around and play.

I suggest the WARE Chew Proof 3 level Cage or the Petco Rat Manor. If those are out of your price range, get a small tub cage or an aquarium with an aquarium topper. So many people underestimate the needs of a hamster. You are right to want a bigger cage! If the cages look barren, buy lots of toys. Disinfect baby toys, reuse paper tubes, and rip up paper towels to make your hammie's cage fun!
