Savic Hamster Heaven

The Hamster Heaven is an excellent and easy cage. Its design makes cleaning very easy, and access to your hamster is no problem thanks to the large door. It provides 589 square inches of space for your little friend! We recommend this cage for all hamster owners, beginners and seasoned. 

The Hamster Heaven is available here!

Savic Mickey, X-Large

  • All accessories are fully removable to customize
  • Very large and sturdy
  • Deep basin for nesting
  • Available through Amazon Prime
  • A stand for the cage is also available for purchase

Cons

  • Wheel will have to be replaced--too small for Syrians

  • Stand is also expensive (~$80)
  • Not always available on Amazon.

Marchioro Goran 82

The Goran 82 is essentially the same as the Kevin, but in more elegant colours and outfitted with different accessories. It does not, for example, have a second corner shelf but it does have a water bottle (although it will need to be replaced). The bar spacing on the Goran is also 1/2" rather than the 1/4" on the Kevin.Of course, it will need more creativity to make it a stimulating environment. The Goran also fits on the Vekto 82 stand.

While the Goran 82 offers the same footprint as the Kevin, there is a Goran 72 option that is smaller. We feel the 82 is better and urge you to choose it instead.


The Goran 82 is available here.

The Vekto 82 stand is available here in white and here in black. It also ships Amazon Prime.

The Mickey is a simple cage. It's attractive, easy to clean, and makes everything nice and easy! It also comes with some nice accessories, like the "space pod" house and the metal dish that give the cage bonus points. The only downfall is that the top shelf will need to be covered or removed. Good news though! An inexpensive placemat fits perfectly over the shelf--just secure in place.

Prevue Hendyrx Universal Small Animal Cage

We were so excited to find this cage, as previously we only had barred cages over $100 that were suitable for Syrians. This cage has it all. It's attractive, sturdy, reasonably priced, and wonderfully sized. We highly recommend it!

The Kevin is another great option for all hamster owners. It is similar in construction to the Hamster Heaven, but is actually even larger. The Kevin provides 640 square inches of space! This makes the optional stand even more helpful, as it fits the cage perfectly. The stand also provides a handy shelf for hamster supplies, and is fitted with castors for easy moving. Of course, you could simply keep the cage on a suitable piece of furniture too. Either way, your hamster will love it!
