    Well it finally arrived on Wednesday after waiting a week for delivery - think they had forgot to send it because I phoned them and they sent it that day and I received it the next day.

    I think its great for dwarf hamsters although I wouldn't like to keep a Syrian in it unless you added a few add ons. Jasmine our Russian hamster seems to like it anyhow. I got her a little den add on that she sleeps in and she loves the wheel and the cardboard thingy in the cage - she likes popping up through all the little holes. Not sure about the water bottle though - seems a bit daft and not sure if she knows how to use it so I have put a bowl with water in too just to be on the safe side.

    I love it that much I have ordered another one for Tommy our other Russian.:D

    A double-sized ovo, that might be interesting.

    Aww thanks Sharon.:D

    Yes the cardboard thing is meant for them to chew and then you can replace them. I have seen a pack of 3 for £4.99 online. I'm not sure that she will chew it though because I have noticed that my dwarf hamsters don't really seem to chew cardboard at all - they aren't like Syrians that will chew anything in sight. I have ordered an add on maze and a tree cardboard thing to put in it too so she should be happy. She seems happy enough in this cage anyway. I bought her a Savic Peggy and she was so unhappy that she didn't come out at all that night and I was worried that she had died so I put her back in her old cage the next day but this one she seemed to take to right away. I'm wondering if she just likes plastic cages and not ones with bars - perhaps they make her feel vulnerable.:confused:

    Thanks Cherrie.:D Yes they are bigger than they look aren't they. I like the little bit where the wheel is where there are some steps and the little hidey hole underneath - I reckon she will be moving her bed in there when she gets fed up with the den.:)

    Well the other Habitrail ovo loft that I ordered on Friday came today. I ordered one of those little den thingies for the hamster to sleep in and one of those mazes. I was shocked how big the maze compartment is - it's massive.:eek:
    I have put Tommy the Russian in it and he seems to be enjoying himself on the wheel at the moment.:laugh:

    Well I cleaned out the first one I got last night for the first time and it took about 5 minutes which I thought was great because hamster cages usually take about 15 minutesor more depending on the number of fiddly tubes, to wash, dry and put together again - I was well impressed how easy they are to clean out.:D

    Just loading some pics now to my computer and will put some on of both cages.:thumbup1:

    It looks like a great cage. My Bella would love the cardboard thingy, as she likes running through things.
