Default Re: feeding/hoard advice

The Ferplast guinea pig house is good and inexpensive. It has a flat, removable roof.

Is the house with the tunnel entrance a plastic one? Could be that he got too hot in there and moved out if its a plastic one.

Trouble is that hamsters sometimes change their peeing arrangements. Mine pees in his corner toilet in his house and used to pee in the other corner toilet in the cage while outside his house. Now he ignores that toilet and pees in the corner behind the sand bath. Why? I have absolutely no idea.

I'd leave the caves or one of them in if they give him another level and you have the space. Hidey places are always good.

You never know, he might be exploring those caves when you're not watching him. My hamster switches nests rather frequently, she gets attached to one for days and abandons the others. After a week or so, she may choose to switch up according to her mood. I'm with Ria and I'd leave them in even if he doesn't nest in them, they're still fun places to hide in and explore.

Smile Re: feeding/hoard advice

his house is wooden- (its a 'natural' themed habitat)- I'll check out the ferplast suggestion.

there's plenty of room for a house and his caves, I'll just slightly rearrange his tunnel and climbing branch, to accommodate a larger house

thanks for all the advice and suggestions

I goy him a rodipet labyrinth house/hideout,which he loves, he has chosen one room for his toilet, so I put his potty in there and he's using it no bother, though I still find a bit of his hoard in the potty. His main hoard is in his nesting room, which I just leave alone.

He didn't use the top entry much, the hole is above the eroom he chose for his toilet, I put a wooden house over it and he uses it all the time now- its soo cute watching him dart in one door, and come out of another- I never know which he will choose.

He seems to have developed a habit of dumping his evening's collection into his wheel - I heard a strange noise one night, whe I checked he was running in the wheel with all his food spinning out and dropping on him-which he wasn't bothered by in the slightest! Now every morning there is a little left on his wheel and the rest salted away in his hoard

He still uses his 'caves' but they are now in his playpen.

He seems to be a very happy little hamster now, and I'm a bit less worried now that he's living in a nice clean environment.
