KAYTEE® CritterTrail Begin & Connect Habitat is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I do recomend this but... I used it only for expansion on another bigger cage. This is way to small if you don't plan to expand. It is a little hard to clean and assemble because unlike the bigger cages the lid snaps on vs. clipping on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ADD ON This cage is great in addition to other crittertrail hamster cages. I do not recommend this as a single-cage habitat because it is very small. There aren't very many things that fit in here (Syrian-sized wheel, large toys, tunnels etc.) Overall this cage is great but you need many other things to accommodate it well to your hammy setup :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT!!!(with add-ons) I bought this when I was walking around pet smart. Its a great cage if you put on add-ons. It was so good I bought a second one because my hammie was sick. it was great to separate and a good add-on or sick cage. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cage If you are planning on keeping a hamster in here get an add on. I add it to my crittertrail 2 level cage. comes with cage, water bottle, wheel, and two bubble plugs so u can add on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT cage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bought this cage yesterday and love it! it has an easy to assemble wheel, water bottle, and inside. It was hard to assemble at first but then I got the hang of it. The wheel doesn't squeek { big pro!} and it has plenty of places for fun extenders. It comes with the exercising wheel, the water bottle, and a spring to keep the door shut. Over all GREAt Product!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Small I was sold this cage for a SYRIAN HAMSTER... This is way too small for even smaller hamsters! When the wheel is in place, along with a small food bowl and hut, there is only a few inches of floor space for your pet! Even with attachments, it is cramped, and my Syrian Snickers was miserable from day one. Even my mothers' Robo Hamsters were miserable from lack of room to run and stretch their legs! I would not force any creature into such a small enclosure! Do not buy it just because it is cheap! Think of your pet's comfort over your wallet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Cage This is a super nice cage and Bonnie, my winter white, loves it so much. I recommend this cage only if you have another cage connected to it... because it is only about one square foot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This cage is great! I got a chinese dwarf hamster and she loves it! the wheel is perfect height for her. It's not too big but perfect for little hamsters, if you keep your hamster in the cage all day it's not very good but whenever she's up i hold her and put her in a ball so she's not cramped and its great

Would this cage be recommended to start with for 2 robo hamsters?

Asked by: Momma bear x4
No, not even 1 would even be close to happy in here. Hamsters need a minimum of 450 square inches. This means you need at the very least 900 square inches of UNBROKEN floor space. Then you need at least 2 wheels of 6 inches or more, at least 4 hides, a ton of toys, a lot of chews, sand bathes, and at least 5 inches of bedding ( for robos). Please listen. Pet stores have marketing tricks to make you think this cage is proper care when it isn’t. This is the minimum for 2 not more only 2 robos to live together. But I wouldn’t recommend having 2 or more robos (or any hamster in fact) for anyone even if they’re experienced. Hamsters are solitary animals. But this is the minimum if you want to try. Always have a back up plan or extra money for a vet if anything goes wrong.

Would this be a good cage for a rat??

Asked by: Jackie576
No. This would most likely be too small for a rat. It is good for a hamster or a mouse.

Can you remove the wheel and use a different one ?

Asked by: HalleHamster
Possibly? This cage has less than 11" of interior height, and only around 70 square inches of interior floorspace. It is minuscule: so you would likely only be able to fit a wheel that is the same size or smaller than the one it comes with.

I have a baby rat about size of a hamster maybe little smaller can I get this and when gets bigger get a bigger cage?

Asked by: Jackie7223
This cage is not suited to any rodent species, but especially not a young rat. You would do better to look into barred cages with metal or plastic bases and added levels, to allow for the climbing needs of a rat. A young rat would be safest in a cage with 1/4" or 1/2" bar spacing. I should also mention that rats are strictly social animals, and will experience depression and a weakened immune system when kept alone. If you are trying to keep a solo rat- especially a young one- I implore you to get him/her at least one cagemate. Take it from someone who has made the mistake of keeping a solo rat in the past. (I bought him when he was around 2 months old, and he lived one very sickly year with me before suddenly becoming very ill and dying of unknown causes. He was extremely attached to me- as the pet store had promised he would be- but I realize now, after having done research, that this bond was extremely unhealthy and the result of his being denied same-species contact during his time with me.)

Is cages with bars better that the cages w/o the bars for hamsters

Asked by: Lize
Currently, few to no barred cages available in the US & marketed towards small animals (with appropriate bar spacing) have both enough floorspace and a deep enough bedding pan for a dwarf hamster. No barred cage exists in the US that would suite the needs of a Syrian hamster. Being denied over 450 square inches of unbroken floorspace and bedding deep enough to make burrows in can lead to severe stress; depression; and aggression in a hamster. A stressed / bored hamster in a barred cage will likely start chewing on the bars- which can lead to misaligned and broken teeth- and climbing them- which can lead to damaging falls, as hamsters are not designed to climb vertically. I highly suggest looking in to buying a 40 Gallon Breeder Tank or a 55 Gallon Tank if you are interested in housing a dwarf hamster. You could also convert a large plastic storage bin into a cage for a dwarf hamster, provided you attach mesh to either the lid or the sides. A 75 Gallon Tank would work for a Syrian, you could also research making DIY cages with melamine wood and a clear glass/plexiglas/acrylic front.

Can i put a rat in here?

Asked by: Random people who can hel
No. This cage is too small for a rat. I wouldn’t recommend this cage for anything other than a travel cage for a mouse or hamster
