Ferplast Laura Cage – Is It Worth The Money? First up is the Ferplast Laura Cage Review and whether this is best cage for dwarf hamsters. Click Here To See The Video Review
The Ferplast Laura Cage is priced around £50 and is by far one of the most exciting cages to have and look at. It comes with all your needed essentials for dwarf hamsters including food bowl, hamster house, tubes (which brought separately would cost more than the cage), water bottle, water bottle holder and a surprisingly good running wheel.
Now our first impressions of this cage were negative about the wheel before UN boxing. We thought were “it seems to good too be true and has enough space for our two male dwarf hamsters; maybe the wheel might be rubbish.” But I was wrong.
In fact the wheel in this cage is good and the tubes are easily put together. However, the assembly of this cage took roughly 4-5 minutes.
Why This Dwarf Hamster Cage Will Benefit You
Dwarf Hamster are very active creatures, especially at night and this hamster cage is one of our favourite cages that we still use to this day. This is because it has plenty of space, room, tubes (Dwarf’s love the tubes) and 2 layers. Another benefit of this cage is the overall size being not too big, not too small… Just right for fitting in your living room or on top of a cabinet/shelf (away from the cats and dog).
Here are the top 3 reasons why we would recommend this habitat for your pet:
Space – Space is important especially if two or more hamsters live together in this cage. Space can be what causes dwarf hamsters to become territorial over when they grow older and can be the cause of fighting. This cage provides plenty of space, distance whilst being fun for all types of dwarf hamsters.
Tubes/tunnels – For some unknown reason, hamster really enjoy wooden/plastic tunnels, tubes and passages. The clear tubes are great for kids to watch and adults to observe as they play in the tubes.
Accessible – This cage is connectable with other cages by Ferplast including the Combi (See our Review) and other Ferplast accessories including the wheel room. You can get parts for this cage online and connect them up to make overall bigger hamster cages.
Best Cage for Two Dwarf Hamsters? Yes, this cage is suitable for two hamsters and has more than enough room for two robo, Russian, fancy Russian, Chinese or other dwarf hamster. Please be aware that this cage is not suitable for non-dwarf hamsters like Syrian.

Ferplast Laura Cage Bad Points – Who is this Designed for?
This cage is great for Dwarf hamsters including:
- Chinese Dwarf Hamsters
- Roborovski Dwarf Hamsters
- Winter Whites
- Fancy Dwarf Hamsters
- All types of ‘Dwarf Hamsters’
The Ferplast Laura Cage is designed for dwarf hamsters and should not be used by bigger hamsters like Syrian hamsters or hamsters. They require a bigger cage with bigger tubes, more space and a bigger wheel.
You will notice that most of the bad reviews about this cage are because of wrong choice of cage for their hamster. This cage may be big for a dwarf hamster but small for a Syrian.
Final Thoughts – How Your Dwarf Hamster Will Benefit From This Cage
Our rating on this cage is a 4.5 out of 5 for size, reliability and general care for your Dwarf Hamsters.
Here are a handful of ways in which this cage will improve your dwarf hamster’s life.
A Cage With Fun Integrated – The tubes, layers and wheel supplied already provide a fun experience for your dwarf hamster, even before you have put accessories in. The tubes can be bought separately and fixed to other Ferplast cages like the Combi to create bigger cages.
