Ok we had shelves and wire here so we made a cage because I didnt like the size of the ones that could be bought. We had the materials so why not right? Any way my hubby wants them in the liven room and I want them in my grand daughters room. Down falls of each room. LIVEN ROOM- We have cats that might hunt/scare them. Would have to move a cabinet in my GD bed room ( I don't mind ). It would be noisy here in the liven room. GD BED ROOM- they would be away from every one and the cats BUT they would be in front of drafty windows. I put plastic up every winter but it is still cold / drafty. I could put blankets up over the windows but it would be dark all the time. They are in my room in a middle size hamster cage at the moment. They are ok for room for now as they are very small still.
