Default Re: Introducing Polo

What a lovely and fun hamster home Polo has! I really like Polo's set up and she will be a very happy hamster in there.

Peeing places. Yes, well, i have once started a thread about Henry's peeing places and changing habits and in the end concluded that a hamster will pee where a hamster wants to pee.

Touch wood, he's been peeing in his large Rodipet ceramic corner toilet which doesn't sit in a corner anymore and is located outside his house for quite a while now and nowadays he prefers to pee in sand.

He used to pee in the small Rodipet ceramic corner toilet inside his house which he also used as a bin until the day he decided to use it as a food store only.

I chuckled at the M&S clothes size reference...

Default Re: Introducing Polo

Some help needed, Polo has started frantically chewing her cage, she is in an Alaska, the corners are vertical bars and slightly wider than the others, she has made her face sore where she shoves it through this gap and chews.
She obviously wants out, but she is doing this once we have gone to bed. I have checked her wheel, and for the moment attached some card over the corners to stop her. She comes out daily and the more I let her free roam the more she wants out!
I will attach some photos of her set up when I get home from work.
The only thing I have changed is that about 2 weeks ago I removed her food bowl and started scatter feeding, mainly to give her more space on the ground.
She has whimzees and currently has half a hedgehog and toothbrush in her horde.
She is quite clever and just. Bit manipulative, she will give us a little press of her teeth if we donít do what she wants, itís not a bite, just a threat lol
I hardly clean her environment at all as she pees in her sand bath and I can just clean her pees from that daily.

I really like your set up a lot and can't suggest any improvements.
I'd put her food bowl back in and scatter feed half the food. They can get funny when we remove something that's theirs.
See if that helps.

Polo is such a cutie and very photogenic, love the cage set up, as Ria P says they can get funny when you remove things from their environment
