Default Slow boat to Saudi

Hows this for irony...Iíve done a massive online order and the majority of it is arriving between 5-8 days from Wednesday. I feel like a child waiting for Christmas. The only spanner in the works here is that the wooden wheel is part of the small minority of things arriving over 15 days from Wednesday. Can you believe this!!! Why couldnít it be something else like the oat spray or the random log I ordered that looks like a tree or the hay treat that really looks the same as the other hay treat I ordered. This isnít fair!!!!! Why must it be the wheel?!!

Would it be ok if my hamster went without a wheel for a week or so after I bought him or her? The agony of staring at a set up cage with everything ready to go minus the wheel until it arrived would be agony! Iíve tried finding other sellers, other types of wooden wheels but there is only one 28cm diameter wooden wheel. All the others are smaller and guess what? All the others that are smaller ship in 5-8 days. Can you believe that!!! That almost finished me off.

Hang in there! If it was me, I hate to say it but I would wait for the wheel, i know you are so excited and i would feel the same way as you but without the wheel I would be worried that my hamster got frustrated and started picking up bad habits like bar chewing which may then be harder to get them to stop if it has become a habit before the wheel turned up. Or is there a chance you can pick up a large enough plastic one before the wooden one arrives. You could always use the plastic wheel as a spare for if/when your hamster is out of it's cage

Schwartzie, you are VERY well informed and know fine that you HAVE to wait for the wheel because it is a hamster essential. In the meantime keep talking and sharing on this forum, you have waited so long now and you will cope with another couple of weeks. It will be worth the wait to get a complete set up the way you like it and then your hamster will decide how he or she likes it. You can go to the pet shop at different times to catch sight of the hamsters when they're eating and observe them to see which ones look healthy and which ones you feel drawn to.
