Default Re: Henry and Gordon

Last night Henry must have decided that the hoard in his house was too big even for hamster standards.

Maybe he started to feel crowded in his nest or had not enough room left to stretch his paws in his guinea pig sized house.

He had chucked part of his hoard out of his front door for me to collect and dispose of i guess. Nice to know that i'm his refuse collector now.

He tidies his coconut outhouse quite frequently so i had to collect and dispose of the chucked out poops and seed shells as well.

Handy to have a hamster who prunes his own hoard. Saves me a job.

Henry sounds like a very orderly hamster! I've never had any of my lot clean out their own nest before. I wonder if this behaviour is common?

Henry our Syrian hamster does not chew, burrow or play with toys.

I made him all sorts of cardboard toys and puzzle toys in the past but he simply can't be bothered with any of it.

The only time he chewed was when he took a decorative garland down, he had climbed up his cage on both ends of the garland and bitten through it.

A couple of nights ago i made him a toilet roll toy, put slits in, then stuck sunflower and pumkin seeds in them. A short while later i retrieved the toilet roll minus the seeds and with chewed ends! Henry chewing cardboard was unheard of. So tonight i put more seeds in the slits and later retrieved the cardboard roll minus the seeds and the slits because Henry had chewed right through them.

I think that he was trying to tell me to stop messing with his food!

That sounds like a good idea! I've been trying to think of a toy that Baldrick might enjoy as his new section is quite bare. Nanuk will definitely enjoy that too.

A quick tip i wanted to pass on.

I have two identical houses (Ferplast guinea pig house) for Henry so when i have to clean his cage i put Henry plus house plus some of the nest and hoard in a transport box. I keep the clean part of his nest back separately.

I clean his cage and put everything back exactly where it was before or he'd throw a tantrum and put the second house with the old nest plus fresh and a little of the old hoard plus fresh hamster mix back in so everything is ready for him.

He usually goes back in his house while waiting in the transport box and the house in the cage smells of him because i alternate them.

I find that as long as Henry has one of his houses to go into he's alright waiting and doesn't get too stressed.
He's not exactly happy to be out of his cage when it wasn't his idea to come out but he tolerates it......as long as i hurry up and don't keep him waiting for too long.

Here he is in the transport box.
