Lovely cage and he enjoys the toys and houses etc.

Those treat cupboards are a good idea. Do you have a tutorial on how you made them?

Thank you. Those opening cupboards will be great hiding things for a hamster to find. Like food, treats and nesting material.

Wow! I definitely want to make one of these! Maybe next month...
Where did you get the safe sealant from? And safe paint?

Your DIY cage looks lovely - I really enjoyed watching your video on the construction of your cage and has given me some ideas. That is such a good idea on painting the mesh white.
Vanilla looks like he was enjoying his new cage.

The sealant is from eBay and the paint on the inside is Plastikote project enamel. I think the paint on the outside was from B&Q
