    KAYTEE® CritterTrail® Starter Habitat is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oh kaytee This is not nearly big enough and give me ANY excuse you’ve got and I will prove them all wrong. Hamster sizes DONT MATTER they all need 450 square inches of floor space and next time you make a “starter kit” make it 450 square inches of floor space and don’t fool your buyers into buying something not good for there pet quit trying to get money and think about the animal for a change

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from can I respond to kaytee here? they need one whole cage that has 450 square inches of floorspace and a place to dig and I dont see that in kaytee so please come up with huge 450 or larger cages and also if you are going to say "they can be expanded" dont label it "everything a hamster needs!!!" when really it should be named "hamster cage expansion" once again dont come at me with "it can be expanded" because they need a cage that doesnt need an expansion and they need bedding so next time come up with just overall a better cage!!! >:(

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hamster has escaped several times. Either we have a genius hamster or this is garbage. He can pop the top open and also unhook the front door to escape! I wired both shy, but now the top has finally cracked up by the lid and he again has found an escape spot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Mice! I’m not sure why everyone Gave this cage a bad review I’m not sure how it works for hamsters but for mice it is a perfect size. I have a blind mouse Harriet who seemed lonely in the cage I had the habitrail cristal was kinda small. So we bought her a friend and this cage with the extension tubes. Little annoying to put together But once you get the hang of it it’s easy to clean and easy to disassemble and reassemble. The only bad thing about this cage is with the additional tubes you need to rinse out the tubes at least every few days because it will smell. And I added a 2 hideouts for the red platforms. So my advice is but the extra tubes, 2 hideouts, use aspen shavings and shredded paper towel for the bed at the top. I probably wouldn’t recommend for hamsters since it’s not the biggest cage nor super sturdy But for mice or dwarf hamsters it’s amazing

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Notice. As a hamster owner, I can tell you that one of these cages is not nearly large enough for a hamster. the minimum required space for a hamster to be as happy and healthy as possible, is above 400 square inches. so please if you want this cage for you hamster, plan on purchasing a few cages. Or purchase, or build a larger cage. You can see many videos about this topic on Youtube. This cage is only 75 inches in floor space. i have purchased a similar crittertrail cage for my dwarf hamster. It is insanely too small even for one chinese dwarf hamster.

    I want to get this cage for a travel cage and i want to know if it is strong cause my hamster loves climbing and dome people say that their hamsters escape from it so is it proof for climbing?

    Asked by: Hamsterlover1212
    It’s important to know that hamsters should not be able to climb their cage. No matter wether they can or not, if they fall they can injure themselves severely and can induce stress with back problems. A typical vet trip for your hamster is around $77.50 to get it looked at an exotic vet. ( The only vets who see small creatures ) So please keep that in mind before buying bar cages for your hamster :)

    I recently bought this starter kit and iwas wondering if the water container thing was for all types of hamsters because the tip seems big for it to drink out of

    Would this work great for a rat?

    Asked by: TheShugart
    We recommend something larger for a rat, like the Kaytee Rat Home found here: https://www.petsmart.com/small-pet/cages-habitats-and-hutches/cages/kaytee-rat-home-44964.htmla CritterHome. Another good option is the Kaytee CritterHome, found here: https://www.petsmart.com/small-pet/cages-habitats-and-hutches/cages/kaytee-critterhome-habitat-41477.html

    I have this cage from when I had a dwarf hamster. I recently received a three week old Syrian hamster and don’t know much about them. Is this a good cage for her for when she’s fully grown? If no what are some good cages you recommend?

    Asked by: Lexw
    Hello! For when the hamster grows, you may want to look into getting one of our CritterHome habitats. These offer much more room than a CritterTrail starter habitat.

    I am thinking of getting a gerbil, would this cage work for them?

    Asked by: Superfan
    No! It’s too small for one gerbil, let alone two (they should be kept in pairs). Gerbils also chew through plastic like crazy which can get them sick and have them escape.

    I was wondering if it came with a wheel and If works for a hamsters?

    Asked by: Jobuddy767
    It does come with a wheel however it is only big enough for a dwarf. The cage itself is too small on its own so it should only be used as an add on to an aquarium or bin cage.

    Can I get this in the store

    what are the actual dimensions of this cage? I bought a similar looking cage that came in a 6" wide box so I think the product dimensions may be for the packaging instead of the assembled product.

    Asked by: M Michele
    The dimensions are 16” X 11.5” X 10.25”
