Default moving cage to another room

Hi all, iv'e just moved my hamsters cage to another room as my bedroom is too hot.

The room is practically empty as my sister has just moved out and is very quiet, but also very echoy.

I don't spend any time in the room iv'e moved him in, but will see him when i take him out to go in his ball etc


Will him living in an empty room like this cause stress/depression?

Thanks!

Hello,

It shouldn't make any difference. He will be asleep in the day and you will be going in to interract with him as usual. I sometimes have a night light when I move my pets to a room that usually would have light in all evening etc

That's a good question, Hamsters Syrians definitely are solitary by nature, but they do seem to like interaction with us Hoomans...!
If the room he is currently moved to is empty and is hamster safe why not let him free roam instead of him being in his ball?
Also once the weather has cooled down I assume you will be moving him back to his normal place in your room?
Finally while he is in your sisters old room why not spend more time with him?

Does your hamster usually interract with you lots in the evening? If it is just background noise/light I wouldn't worry. Long as you get him out like usual. If you are concerned, as I mentioned you could put a little night light in the room. Many people have hamsters in spare rooms where they only go in to get the hamsters out for the play time

He will be better off in the cooler room. All you need to do is interact with him as you normally would, but in the cooler room.

Give him the same amount of out of cage time, cuddles etc as normal.
