Default How to fix this hole

Hi everyone.

So I am more than annoyed at Khali right now. I discovered she has started to chew the tiny hole in the end of her detolf where the light cable would go if used as purpose. I have always had the wheel against it and its never been a problem until now.



So at the minute I have just cut up some thick carboard and wedged it in between the two metal bits so she shouldnt be able to move it about.



Has anyone else with a detolf had this problem and how did ypu fix it? Im thinking maybe screwing in a tiny piece of wood to cover the whole into the end piece of wood fron the inside, but would i be able to do this with the cage still on its side and set up? What about wood glue, is it safe?

Any ideas would be very very welcome.

Fron a rather angry hammy parent

The best thing for a hole is usually a bolt & washer, if you try fixing wood over the hole she'll probably just have lots of fun trying to chew it off again.

Thanks Cyoher. Thats what I have done for now and then covered it back with the carboard for now. Hoping she forgets about it
