Default Re: Hamster wants to escape!

Hi, thanks for all the advice. So I’ve added more substrate and have her a house which she sleeps in. She uses her toilet but does poo in her wheel so I do spot clean that and only do a full clean out around every month/ month and half. Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed she doesn’t try to escape. However, if she sees or hears me she’ll try and climb the walls again and as soon as I put my hand in she runs to me and tries to climb up my arm!

That sounds as though she's happier in her cage now which is great, sounds like she just wants to interact a lot too, does she have much out of cage time?

I’ve previously let her roam around in a secure room with her toys but she seems anxious and goes straight to the corner and starts chewing and digging the carpet/skirting board. I don’t want to stress her so she’s not been out of her tank since.

It's better & safer to either buy or make a playpen for them, some are quite adventurous but most can be overwhelmed by having a whole room to explore with no boundaries, especially to begin with.
Even with a playpen some will be anxious at first so you need to begin with short sessions & gradually build up the time.
