Are these IKEA homes suitable?

Post by Wishfulturtle on Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:27 pm

I know that these are intended for hamsters, but I've used hamster cages for my mice before... so I was wondering whether these IKEA hamster homes that ive seen online are good for pets? The most popular is the "Billy" home, and I'm planning one similar. Obviously, it would have a glass pane and a mesh top for respiratory needs, and the glue recommended is aquarium glue because it s strong and okay around animals. I'm also not sure about using nails to tack down the mesh as it will be at a height where the mouse could bite them. Would that be okay?
Okay, so basically, should I make this IKEA mouse enclosure or are they bad??

I think it's a great idea. I've seen photos of them online before and the look really nice and are quite roomy. Maybe use shorter nails to tack down the mesh so the mice won't have access to the pointy end of the nails (if I understood you right?)

I don't know how much the billy costs to build, but if the detolf don't fall far from it I'd defiantly go for that one instead, if you have space for it Very Happy
(it's also less work d; )
