So if it’s made with all non toxic materials is it okay if my rabbit actually eats the cardboard?
Answer by ChewyMar 06, 2018
These shapes are non-toxic so your pet is safe to chew on it, although it's not recommended for them to eat the hideout.

can you fit a full size guinea pig inside the hole
Answer by ChewyDec 28, 2020
A full size guinea pig would not fit inside the holes.

Which one should i get for my hamsters?
Answer by ChewyJan 26, 2018
We'd recommend measuring your hamster and the area it would being going for the best option since hamsters can vary in size.

Would this fit a hedgehog?
Answer by ChewyOct 31, 2018
This hide out is great to provide daily mental and physical stimulation for small mammals, including hedgehogs.

Mind the Sizing!

First, big thanks to Christy’s review, as that is what decided me on this product. So I’m not a rodent person and haven’t done any deep dives into rodent care. Currently I’m gerbil sitting. Found this and figured that as gerbils are some of the smallest of pet rodents (so I thought?), the size small would be perfect. Maybe it is? The holes look too small and I had a panicked moment envisioning trying to unstick a gerbil from a cardboard trap. Now I had ferrets for 20+ yrs so I know that spaces that seem too small are often not - boy do I know it. Still, as these gerbils aren’t mine and I haven’t seen all the wild things they may be able to do as far as squeezing into or out of stuff, I cannot give this to them as is. So I ordered the next size up and since they seem to like chewing the corrugated cardboard, I’ll cut the small one (says ‘Tiny’ on tag btw!) up into cubes for them to hide and chew. Who knows, my kid might just have larger than normal gerbils. Regardless, I posted a picture w a quarter for scale next to the hole.

Gerbil Problem Solved

Are your gerbils tired of the same old toilet paper rolls? Are the longer, more exciting paper towel rolls just not cutting it anymore? Have they brazenly and callously eaten the lovingly placed plastic castle? Look no further! Imperial Cat has you covered with this fun edible cardboard hideout. Why risk it with shipping boxes from questionable warehouses? Avoid boredom AND poisoning... opt for the Play N Shapes Cheese Small Animal Hideout instead!

Small and cute

I got the medium for my rats, but it’s too small for them to get into. I have some big tubby rats. Of course this must have been made for mice because it’s the perfect size for them. I’m going to use it as stairs for my rats since some of them are old. They love using it and chewing on it. So it’s a win. I highly recommend it even for rat owners if they have older rats that need sturdy steps to climb.

You get what you pay for I guess

I knew it would probably be too good to be true that this little hideout was only a few dollars. But I was a little shocked to find that it was literally just cardboard with paper on it. Not really what I was expecting. Not terrible. But I wouldn’t buy it again.

Mice tested and approved

My mice absolutely love this and the size is just right for them to hide inside the holes

Much smaller than expected

I ordered this knowing I ordered a small but didn’t realize it was as small as it was

Too small for rats

I got this for my rats but it's too small for them to fit in the holes. Will still use it as an agility obstacle.

awesome multi purpose toy!

I use these in my mouse enclosures as stairs to the water bottles. I love that it also is a chew toy and tunnel/hide. I have 10 females in a 75 gallon so anything that can be used for multiple purposes is a must to keep my girls all busy and entertained!!
