Default Stealer got a new ball, and wheel!

The ball we got is a rat ball, massive, but she loves it. Right pain to assembled and we secured it with Gorilla tape.



We also got her a nice 28cm wheel which just fits in the current cage.




New bigger cage is on its way!

She looks to be enjoying that wheel! I am sure she will enjoy the Alaska cage as well. Don't mean to put a damper on the ball but they can be a bit risky as the rat balls have such large slits - hammies can get their toes or toenails caught in them. I gave up on using a ball. I do have a Savic Rat ball (it seemed to have the smallest slits of all but they are still too large) - I just use it for transporting our hammy from the cage to a playpen area now. You could rig up a playpen maybe, rather than using the ball. There are lots of tutorials on making one, or Zooplus sell a good one but it's about 25. I think there are cheaper options. Or you can use the bathtub (dry with plug in) for taming and running around although it's not really big enough for a playpen.

I made one out of sheets of correx (plasticised corrugated cardboard) and bulldog clips from a tutorial on here. That did us for a while but it wasn't escape proof so I had to keep an eye on the corners. Or you could make one from sheets of cardboard from large cardboard boxes and bulldog clips.

This was my old playpen - you can set it up any shape you want - long and thin or square. I used A1 sheets of correx/coroplast. But to be honest that cost me about 25! Same as the Zooplus one. I have the Zooplus one now and it's great.

Someone on here made one out of some panels you can get that clip together and aren't too expensive I think. When she's tamer you might not need one. Our hammy used to run around on the sofa when he was tame - I just blocked the front edge off with a blanket and kept an eye on him.

You may have accidentally posted it in the robo section. Worry not, a moderator will likely move it to the correct area

I didnt even know there was a Roborovski section. I only ever post in Hamster Chat. I wonder if there was a glitch when I edited the title...

Editing the title of your post won't have moved the thread to a different section but don't worry, a moderator can move a thread if it's more suited to another section of the board as it makes things easier for members to find possible solutions to a similar problem that they may be having.

I have moved this thread to 'Housing' for you as it concerns toys.
