KAYTEE® Critter Trail 360 Small Animal Habitat
Not what I would recomend
When i saw this cage on display I was pleased with it. However, as I placed my new winter white hamster in there, I realized the bars were extremely bendible. After some research I discovered that this cage was almost cruel to any pet, even small rodents. My hamster hardly did anything but dig in his bedding. The water bottle constantly leaked and he had difficulty getting anything but a drop out to drink at a time. His food bowl was ok though, even if it got bedding in it constantly.
I went out and got a new cage a few days later (the crittertrail two) and he now is out every night running through his "fun-nels" and on his wheel. The crittertrail 360 left him depressed, stressed, and agressive half the time, while now, he hardly ever growls at me. Since he is new, i do espect this behavior, though the crittertrail 360 provoked and encouraged it.

Great for a larger rodent. Mice escape!
Small, compact, easy to clean, noiseless wheel, built in water bottle. Suitable for 1 inhabitant. We bought it for our pet mice. All of them were able to escape through the wire bars. Not suitable for mice! Small rats would probably be okay. Too small for multiple larger rodents.

Not a great cage
TERRIBLE!!!! i got this cage for my hamster then soon found out it was way to small!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hamsters need a minimum of 360 square inches or more (you can find this by legnth x width) bigger is always better the wheel is way to small measuring 4.5 inches in diameter those kinds of small wheels are suitible for only Robos also the food not healthy. the water bottle only has a hole in it that leaks water. i suggest water bottles with a ball so when the hamster pushed the ball water comes out. the food dish tips over everytimes my hamster gets the food. the cage is round.dont waste your money buy a cheaper bin cage just go to your local hardware store and buy a large bin make sure its tall so it cant come out. after a few weeks the cage didnt snap on also it isnt sturdy its kinda easy to clean tho.

You get what you pay for....
This cage was given to us by a friend, along with one expansion trail pack, so I can't really complain about the price. I did price-check, so I knew it would be about twenty bucks if I had to replace it. But the fasteners stop working fairly quickly, and the door had to be clipped shut with a carabiner or else the hamster would escape. The wheel is really small, so she didn't run in it very often. Also, the wires are so long, she bent two aside and escaped that way! It was easy to clean and open and airy, but I would recommend spending a few more dollars on another product. Other CritterTrail cages are great.
