he is absolutely adorable!!
Thanks so much☺️ Iím just trying to figure out how to work it with pellets and a mix.

I saw Ragna last night....he is very scared and froze when I looked over his cage. He then went on his wheel then back into his nest. I hope he will become more confident.

What do you mean by "you looked over his cage"? Did you put your hands in while Ragna was awake? He needs to learn first that he can feel safe in his new home first so i wouldn't do anything too intrusive at this very early stage. You could add some paper with your scent on for now.

I'm going to get a pet camera like Luna has. You could get one of them to watch Ragna and find out how he's doing in his new home.

I didnít open the cage or anything...the cage is on an average height table and peered to see him through the mesh. From what I can tell, Ragna has made a tunnel from the bottom of the cage where the pot plant holder barrier is up through the deepest part of the substrate to his house which I think is great - he is using his sixth sense as a hamster but how am I going to clean anything? I carefully lifted the lid of his box house this morning and I can see through the paper that he has a hole linking to his house so he must be using it as a thorough fair. He hasnít used his toilet like he did the first night. I really have no way of spot cleaning at all. The substrate Iím using needs to be ordered and will take an average of a week to 10 days to arrive. Will I still be able to do big cleans every couple months or so? The pee is what is concerning me. Any advice on that anyone?

Ragna is huge, and soooo adorable!

I'm sure he will become confident very soon with such an amazing owner like you, and such a lovely place to stay in.

Remember to talk gently near him (it doesn't have to be at him, you could just be talking or singing in the background), and add your scent to his tissues so that he will get used to you more quickly!

Luna has an iegeek camera and i've enabled private messaging now. I don't know about cleaning because Henry sleeps in his house and doesn't burrow or tunnel. Ragna may move above ground once he feels safe though.

Just to throw in the mix and so a comparison can be done...I have a zmodo night camera which can spy on hamster antics. I even used it once when I was 100 miles away overnight for work. Mine is about 3 years old so I expect a better model is available now.
Congratulations on the arrival of Ragna, it has been such fun following the preparations for the arrival. Fabulous set up for him.

What's the model of your camera? Do they need an App downloaded or how do they work? I'm a technology phobe. There are so many different ones! Schwartzie, i'm not trying to hijack your thread but you're probably looking for the same answers.
