Default Spoilt Russian chewing his hamster heaven.

My Russian hamster likes to chew his cage door when I walk past. Despite having a Hamster Heaven cage and plenty of enrichment, including chew toys, he tends to chew especially upon me walking past his cage or hearing me talk.

Any ideas?

I would feel quite flattered to get so much attention from my hamsters who usually ignore me.

What happens when you talk to him, stroke him? Does he stop bar chewing after getting your attention?

Hamsters like Whimzee dog chews. You could give him one when he chews the bars to keep him occupied.

Awww that is so adorable!! You could try weaving some strips of card around the door and nearby bars, to encourage nibbling that not the door... also, weirdly a sand bath underneath the door could help - my previous hammy had an awful chewing habit when I was around, and before I upgraded to a diy tank style cage, the only thing that helped was putting a sand bath under where she chewed. It seemed to distract her, and when she got to the chewing spot she seemed to forget her purpose and go digging instead!
