Red face Re: Possible hybrid

Whimzees usually get carried to their nests!

I made a hamster playground in the hall by closing all the doors and put a blanket down with things on it.
I always put a spare wheel out and a long bendy plastic tunnel, cardboard boxes with entrances cut out, a washed Pringle tube, kitchen roll tube, egg box, houses, anything really a hamster can explore.

Hamsters quite like a playpen or secure play area big enough for us to sit in with them so they can use us as a climbing frame or run up our trousers legs.
It's also a good way to get to know each other.

Did you mesh the photo frame by stapeling on the mesh? I'm just curious because i've never heard of a photo frame being used for a lid.

That would be why I couldn't see the whimzee then. I will no doubt find in on the next cleaning! That's brilliant I hadnt thought you could make a play area so easily.i love the idea of using the recycling and the pringles. It could be s
Changed regularly then. Do you wake them up to do it. Mine seems to be asleep until 1am. !
The lid is quite easy to do. You buy a 40x50 photo frame (I bought a 30x40 this time by accident which means I have to have 5 instead of 3). You take the perspex out and use this to cut round the mesh(which can be got from a hardware store). There are clips in the photo frame to keep the perspex/picture in you use these to fit in the wire and its done. I'm no good at diy so this works nicely. Hope this helps. If I can remember how to do the photos I'll put a picture on.

That's a good idea to use photo frames as long as they're heavy enough not to let an adventurous hamster squeeze through a gap.

No, i don't wake mine up to take them out of their habitats.
The ones who want to come out to play get up by themselves.

Thanks. I have now seen him up earlier so should be able to get him out. Good point but the gap il see if I can get hold of the bigger ones during lockdown.
