Is This Cage Big Enough For A Mouse?

Post by lu99879 on Sun 15 Jul 2018, 2:34 am

Please no judgement !

I’m wanting to get this cage for a mouse that I will be adopting.

The dimensions are Length 40cm x Width 26cm x Height 54cm.

I’m concerned as to whether this is suitable.
Cages are so expensive these days especially in AU, you just get ripped off.. I didnt want a cage thats all wire and this is the biggest one that isnt all wire I can afford. I’m trying not to spend a lot of money.

I feel this cage is too small. It’s smaller (length x width, which is what counts) than the bare minimum suggestion of a 10 gallon tank (50.8 cm x 25.5 cm).  These types of cages tend to be very overpriced and cheaply made, breaking easily, and the wheels they come with tend to be too small.

I recommend a tank instead. That would be a pain to clean btw with all the floors and tubes. A 20 gallon tank would be cheaper than that if you're concerned about prices. A tank has great ventilation too. Buying accessories separately will also save you money.

You can build your own Bin Cage. I’ve saw really big ones in Walmart, plus you can add diferent leves.

Like Joshua A. said, bin cages are really spacious and affordable too = a trip to walmart or target. It's odd that the big tanks in your area are over 300$. That's just crazy. A 10 gallon tank would be fine because they are really small(maybe even a 5 gal.) Depending on where you live, Petco and Pet Supplies Plus have a dollar for gallon deal usually. Good Luck! Smile

That stinks. I’ve heard that finding decently priced aquariums in some countries is really difficult. Sad You may want to look into making a bin cage or building something yourself. I think there’s a bin cage tutorial on here somewhere... . Or if you’re interested in building something, there’s a few you tubers out there with some great ideas. Erin’sAnimals is one I can remember off the top of my head.
