    KAYTEE® Rat Home is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for a full-grown Syrian My Syrian used to reside in an aquarium tank that she ended up growing out of and would build a hill with her bedding in order to escape. I didn't want to buy one of those plastic hamster habitats with the tubes because I know that it's way too cramped for a hamster of her size and it's very likely she would just chew her way out. I bought this cage on sale at Petco for 15-20 bucks less than Petsmart price, so I think it was a good deal compared to other just-as-expensive habitats that aren't that great. I like this cage because my Syrian is a big girl, so this is decent space for her. We take her out to play frequently so that she isn't always stuck in the cage, but even then I know she likes it in there. She LOVES climbing the bars for exercise and the bars themselves seem decently escape-proof. They do feel sort of flimsy and I'd be careful when taking the bars off the plastic tub so that they don't bend excessively, but the first night my hamster spent the night in this, she tried to chew every bar possible and she didn't even chip the paint off, so I think it's pretty safe. The only thing I'd advise people on is the hatch could possibly be opened by the hamster for really any habitat in general, so just put a strong binder clip on it when you aren't around and it'll be virtually escape proof. I replaced the plastic ladder with a piece of wood attached to the bars so that she can use it like an actual ladder to get to the top part and get more exercise that way. There's room, but not THAT much room, so it may end up feeling a bit cramped depending on how big and how many objects and toys you set up in there, but if you take your hamster out frequently to freely roam around in an enclosed area, then I think it's a pretty solid habitat. This cage has a ridiculously easy clean up which is a big plus for me. I think the only risk with this cage is that my hamster COULD chew through the plastic bottom, but I really don't think she understands she can. She focuses on chewing on the bars and I've put TONS of chewable toys in the habitat so that she doesn't resort to chewing on the plastic bottom. It's also a little deep, so if your hamster likes to burrow in bedding, then this would be pretty good. Just put a towel or something underneath the cage to catch all the excess bedding that may come out. Based on other reviews I've read, this isn't super suitable for rats as they'll chew through the plastic tub pretty fast, but I've also read of other rats that haven't. If you know your animal, then you would get what you believe is best for them.

    I was looking at this for a hamster, does this work well for one? Also is the bar spacing really 1/2 an inch, because in the images it only looks like about 1/4 of an inch.

    Asked by: Rylee1214

    I was wondering if this would be big enough for 2 rats
