Step 1: Think big Always get the largest enclosure you can afford, even if your pet is tiny. Just like larger animals, 'pocket pets' need plenty of space to roam around.
Step 2: Consider categories Keep in mind that small-pet cages fall into three main categories: Glass aquariums with wire covers, wire cages, and plastic habitats.
Step 3: Choose glass aquarium for larger pets If you have a 'larger' small pet, such as a rat or teddy-bear hamster, consider a glass aquarium that’s 20 gallons or bigger. These provide enough room to run around, with space for toys and exercise wheels.
Tip A rat will adore a two-level ferret cage, if you can afford it.
Step 4: Consider wire cage If you’re looking for something inexpensive and easy to find, go for a wire cage with a plastic tray bottom. The tray makes the cage easy to clean.
Step 5: Make sure bottom is solid If you select a wire cage, make sure that it has a solid bottom that can hold bedding and is comfortable for your pet to walk on.
Step 6: Check cage’s bars A mouse can squeeze through an opening no wider than a pencil. So if you choose a wire cage for a mouse, make sure the cage’s bars are close enough together to contain the little critter.
Step 7: Consider plastic habitat For gerbils, mice, and hamsters, consider a plastic habitat with tubes and tunnels--but keep in mind that these cages are more expensive and a bit harder to clean.
Tip Small animals are surprisingly good climbers and escape artists. Make sure to put covers securely on aquariums and to fasten doors and latches of wire cages and plastic habitats.
Step 8: Get an exercise wheel All rodents, big and small, love exercise wheels. Make sure your cage is big enough to hold the right-sized wheel for your little friend.
Step 9: Set your pet up Lug the cage home and set up your pet in his nice new habitat!
