While many experience hamster owners may steer clear of cheap cages, you can get some excellent bargains. Obviously they won’t be as good as their premium equivalents, but they are great for a beginner. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to find any large cages that are cheap; unless they are on offer – so do keep this in mind. Especially considering that hamster’s does thrive within a large space, so your hamster may seem a little distraught at first when placed in a small cage.
