What people thank an animal should be kept in and what the animal actually should be kept in. (click the pictures)

This is a companion piece to this post, which focuses on small mammals.

Once again we have companies telling people that their cages are large enough, that the animals only need a little space, or that their cages are “large”. The boxes boast about the products being spacious and large enough to house “happy” animals. This is a flat out lie. The majority of commercial cages are completely inappropriate for what they are made for. And it’s so hard to convince people otherwise because it says right on the box that it’s big enough. And you see it in the media, too. Mice in tiny cages, rats in tiny cages, etc. It’s all fed to us since we were little. And so people grow up with these preconceived notions that animals can live in cages that size. They keep them in the small cage, their friends keep them in the small cage, the animal lives and dies in the small cage. And then you congratulate yourself on a job well done and repeat the process.

All animals need a certain amount of space to be happy. This is especially true for mammals, who are generally social and high energy. A mouse will run between 1-6 miles a day on their wheel. Now tell me that tiny cage is big enough to satisfy their urge to roam.

If we are to keep these animals in captivity their well-being should be our first concern. If you cannot afford a cage that big, you cannot afford the animal. If you do not have space for a cage that big, you do not have space for the animal. If you cannot devote the time to letting them out every day, you do not have the time for the animal. Do NOT get the animal unless you can actually care for it. Not just give it the care the BOX tells you to give it but ACTUALLY care for them.

Mammals kept in cages that are too small tend to give off signs of their cruel confinement. These unnatural behaviors are indicative of (though not soley caused by) an unsatisfactory environment.

Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined ferrets:

  • Pacing
  • Aggression to you (lunging and biting)
  • Constant and intense escape attempts
  • Obesity
  • "Laziness" (really depression or lethargy)

Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined rats:

  • Biting the bars of the cage
  • Cage aggression
  • Aggression to other rats
  • Obesity
  • "Laziness"
  • Pacing
  • Walking in circles

Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined chinchillas:

  • Obesity
  • Chewing the cage bars
  • "Laziness" (especially at night when they should be active)
  • Pacing/repetitive behavior
  • "Barbering" another chinchillas fur. (pulling the hair out)

Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined mice:

  • "Chasing" their tail (walking in a tight circle)
  • Chewing the cage bars
  • Aggression to other mice
  • Backflips in place
  • Pacing
  • Obesity
  • "Laziness"

Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined hedgehogs:

  • Obesity (the biggest sign)
  • "Laziness"
  • Aggression
  • Pacing
  • Repetitive behavior

And to repeat the other article I wrote about this:

And to all those people who are thinking “Well I had a mouse in a cage that size and it was fine.”

Stop.

You have only observed your animal. You have only observed the animal in a confined space and most likely showing signs of distress or behavioral problems. But you interpreted it as normal because that is all you know. You haven’t seen mice in appropriate sized cages. You haven’t seen ferrets in appropriate cages. You haven’t seen a rat who is happy.

Not only that but you are not qualified to make decisions about an animals mental health unless you yourself have researched their body language and spent time (not years, but at least enough time to be well-learned) studying it to understand it competently and be able to accurately interpret it.

Because I can tell you literally every single person who has come into work and seen a mouse or hamster doing backflips starts LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY because they think the mouse/hamster is playing.

That means adults, young adults, teenagers, kids, EVERYONE thought it was a happy little animal jumping for joy when in actuality it was an animal so confined that it was literally going insane.

Mice need to burrow, climb, forage, run, and play. Chinchillas need to jump, run, forage, and play. Rats need a LOT of play. Ferrets need EVEN MORE. These animals are more complex than you think, and that “starter kit” you just bought at the pet store is not going to cut it. So please, if you find yourself in a situation where you already have one of these animals or plan on getting one, give these sites a good read. (note: even some of these sites do not give out proper cage size information! It just goes to show how common of a problem it is)

What people thank an animal should be kept in and what the animal actually should be kept in. (click the pictures)

For one about ferrets, rats, mice, hedgehogs, and chinchillas go here.

Not based on personal preference, but observable fact. An animal kept in an environment that is too small is unhappy and stressed. This can absolutely lead to a short miserable life.

I see a lot of people, virtually every day, who have these preconceived notions about what an animal can live in. A hamster lives in a hamster cage of course, because the happy little hamster on the box says so! This cage is for finches, they even keep them in it at the store! My friend had a rabbit and it lived in that cage so I’ll get that one. This sort of dangerous socially accepted neglect is not just limited to bettas and goldfish. Mammals and birds are subject to it as well.

What people don’t realize is that almost all commercial or common cages are completely unacceptable as homes for what they are marketed for. Those guinea pig/rabbit cages? Garbage. Those tiny finch cages? Torture. That cute technicolor hamster cage? A gimmick.

All animals need a certain amount of space for enrichment and general well being. That does not mean the cages someone is trying to sell you. It means the cages that are best.

And to all those people who are thinking “Well I had a hamster in a cage that size and it was fine.”

Stop.

You have only observed your animal. You have only observed the animal in a confined space and most likely showing signs of distress or behavioral problems. But you interpreted it as normal because that is all you know. You haven’t seen rabbits in appropriate sized cages. You haven’t seen parakeets in appropriate cages. You haven’t seen a hamster who is happy.

Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined hamsters. (The same applies to mice, gerbils, and rats):

  • Biting the cage bars
  • Obsessive digging
  • "Laziness" (lack of foraging/exploring)
  • Aggression
  • Pacing
  • Running in circles
  • Obesity

Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined rabbits:

  • Biting the cage bars
  • Running in circles
  • Bouncing off the cage walls
  • Aggression, irritability when being held
  • Cage aggression
  • Constantly banging toys/decor around
  • Obesity
  • "Laziness"

Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined guinea pigs

  • Biting the cage bars
  • Banging their water bottle on the side of the enclosure constantly
  • Aggression tword other guinea pigs or you
  • Obesity
  • "Laziness"

Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined parakeets

  • Feather plucking
  • Aggression to other parakeets
  • Pacing
  • Obesity
  • Repetitive behaviors (constant singing into a corner, going from the same perch to the same perch over and over again)
  • Fearfulness

Signs and symptoms of cruelly confined finches

  • Aggression to other finches
  • Flight tracing: Going from one perch to another in the exact same spot the exact same way over and over again
  • Obesity

Animals are more complex than people give them credit for. They to do all of the natural behaviors they’re built to do. Exploring, foraging, playing, hiding, interacting (or not interacting) with another animal, etc. All of this is taken from them in cages like the ones above.

People need to educate themselves about an animal before getting one. It’s a thought that’s been said a million times over and yet nobody actually does it. The reality is people who want a hamster/guinea pig/rabbit are not going to sit down and read ten articles and three books waiting 2 months while they set everything up unless they are already enthusiasts who are willing to put that much into their pets. I can say from experience that over 80% of the people who buy pets buy them to make their kids happy with no regard to what the animal needs. What is most important to them is getting a present for their child regardless of any consequences that decision comes with.

So we have to try and get this information out there. We have to try and make THIS the general knowledge about these animals.

Resources and very good reads for anyone who has or wants any of the animals listed here. I’ll add more when I find them.
