This thread is a great idea! I asplso have a little cardboard tea box shelter. I love the walnut string! That is so inventive!

I'd like to see what HCers do to make water bottle holders.

Pringles tube Tunnels.
These are nice and wide and even a plump syrian fits through.
Eat a tube of Pringles (hard I know!) then cut off the bottom metal disc using sharp scissors. Use a cloth and water to clean the inside of the tube of any pringles dust and flavouring. Dry well and allow your hamsters to have fun running through the tunnel
The plastic lid makes a nice low dish as well for porridge or babyfood as well as fruit and veg

I was at the Goodwill yesterday and happened upon this little goodie. It was intended to be a little scrubbie holder that sits on the top of the kitchen sink. BUT me, being the crazy hamster lady, never sees anything as it is intended to be used...I look at it & think, "How could I use that for my hammies?" It is PERFECT for Smudge's girly pink bin cage!!! Not bad for $1.99

If you need food or water bowls, look no further than the supermarket chilled pudding aisle! Gu puds do lovely little glass hamster bowls - 2 in a box. The only downside is that it does need the human to empty the chocolate banoffee filling inside them, but I know we're all committed to our hamsters and so would be willing to make such a sacrifice for them
chocolate banoffees : GŁ Puds

I've had several in use for 2-3 years and they are so sturdy.

i still have mine left from Xmas in a dish and they are still fine.
I posted the same thing about the walnut toy on another tread like this (but without the photos). Nuts in shells can last quite a long time.

I never knew keeping hamsters could be such a burden

Love this thread! Peter has a tissue box with some tissues in it and I always hide treats amongst the tissues and he uses them for his nest even though his house is full of them

About to use up some tea bags too so that box will definitely be saved!!

And finally, I have a Pringles tube all washed and end cut off but do I need to take the silver foil bit out the inside or will this be ok? He's not much of a chewer to be honest
