Smile Hamster Platform Color?

My fiance just built a little wooden platform to go in Hamilton's glass tank. What color should I paint it for him?

What paint are you planning to use? Here in the UK we use Plastikote water based enamel paint which is non toxic & safe to use unlike most paints but I'm not sure if you will be able to get that in the US. Amazon might sell it but I'm not sure.

It might be better not to paint it unless there is some pet safe paint available in the US

I know it has to be non-toxic, waterproof paint. It's not like I'm going into this without doing my research.

Thats good. It is surprising how many people dont realise the need for paint to be pet safe.

I like white cream or pale blue for my hamster cage accessories.

Ooh, pale blue sounds nice! It'll go good with Hamilton's pink skin!
