TOP 10 BEST HAMSTER CAGES IN 2019 REVIEWS

The small size of this rodent often makes a hamster a child’s favorite pet. Hamsters are easy to maintain and are strictly solitary in their living habits. These two features jointly make hamsters the preferred pet in many households. But the one thing you must pay attention to is a good cage for your pet hamster. Remember hamsters need large floor space to move around and deep bedding to be able to burrow. The minimum recommended usable floor space for Syrian hamsters is 1000 square cm with a height of at least 19 cm. For the smaller Chinese or dwarf hamsters, the usable floor space should be at least 750 square cm with a height of 17 cm at least.

If you are planning to build a wooden cage for your hamster yourself, just make sure that you use an untreated variety of wood that your pet can gnaw and avoid the use of wood glue. If, instead, you are planning to buy a commercially available hamster cage, here are the ten best choices by customer reviews in 2019.
