    Getting an imac fantasy tonight for Spike, Cordelia and Willow. Do you think it will be big enough for the three girls (they are Campbells dwarf hamsters) but I have never seen the cage in real life so I don't actually know how big it is, also how much would you pay for this cage, I hope I haven't overpaid:(.

    They are in a Savic Cambridge at the moment so I think it is a bigger cage than that, oooh and I will have two spare Cambridges just in case they start fighting in the future.

    The Imac is much bigger than it looks. I paid £35 for the setup you are buying there...but it was collection only and that is why I got it sooo cheap. It was in very good condition. It is plenty big enough for 3 russians!! :D

    They will love it. How much did you pay? x

    I am getting it tonight and paying £40 it includes the wheel, house etc but I don't think those wheels are safe so I won't be using it.

    Lmao, don't have spare cages, its fatal. I am telling myself that the spare Cambridges are there in case they fight but I will probably end up filling them with someone before long. I will let you know what I think when I get it home.

    It is lovely but they are being a bit dense about the tubes :rolleyes:.
    I have looked into it a lot, apparently Campbells are the least likely to fight and mother and daughter/sister Campbells are usually very good together. However I have two spare Cambridges so even the slightest sign of fighting and they will be seperated. I have done the usual scatter feeding and three of everything etc so keep your fingers crossed for me that they can stay together.

    Aww that's a lovely cage and well worth it with all those levels. Just keep an eye on the doors though because I had an imac for my last syrian and the door became very loose and I ended up having to hold it in place with clothes pegs or the hamster would have got out.:eek:

    I'm sure they will be okay with the tunnels once they get used to. Hamsters can take time to properly adapt to a new home, I've found.

    I thought I remembered someone doing a thread about that problem, was that you Jazzy? I have tested the doors now just in case and they seem quite tight so I don't think there will be a problem, also they are just tiddly hamsters, not big Syrian bruisers:D.

    Willow is still on the bottom floor today so I have put water and food down there just in case she can't work it out:rolleyes:. She really isn't the brightest spark:D.

    I think Foxy also had a problem with the door opening and her hamster escaping and I don't think it was a syrian one.:confused:

    Yes the problem with syrians is they keep chewing the bars don't they so that probably weeked the door a bit. If they are tight now they should be okay.:)
