The cam is brilliant. Works really well. Records night or day. You can look back bay recordings or watch live on your phone.

That is fantastic! The night view is amazing. Iím sold. Thanks SO much for sharing this, Serendipity!

I also had been interested in your setup with one cage below the other, so that was good to see, too. Do you think they are happier hearing/smelling another ham nearby, knowing that they still each have their own secure territory?

I think it was very good value the camera! I asked for it for Christmas and have used it more than I thought I would. You also need to get quite a large capacity micro SD card. When it’s full it goes back to the start and records over previous recordings - so if you want to keep any you just download them and let it carry on. I use it more for the live view at the moment. I enjoy watching them after lights out when I go to bed.

I am not sure about the cages stacked tbh. Previously I had two cages in different rooms but wanted them both in the living room this time for more interaction (but ended up being less!) so invested in the console table so I could have them in the same room. At first I think the younger hamster hid away more but not now. They seem used to it. They have gone into a kind of sync. Ie Moo (the older institutionalised adopted hamster!) seems to just copy whatever Pickle does mostly. He hears what Pickle is doing (wheeling or drinking) and does the same. They both do their own thing as well but neither come out before lights out except for food and that is when they sometimes want out of cage time but not that often. I think that might be different if they were in different rooms. Moo, having lived in a rescue full of hamsters, seems very interested if he can smell Pickle and pesters at the bars if Pickle is out. Not sure if that is in a friendly way or not! We got Pickle as a baby and he seems more suspicious about Moo.

So I think ideally I wouldn’t have them stacked. But in separate areas of the same room. But it’s hard to know what difference it makes unless I move one of them and how much is personality and how much is location near another hamster.

One issue is it is quite awkward doing anything with the bottom cage - even spot cleaning.

Thanks, Serendipity, for your response about the experience of two hamsters. I actually have space to have cages side by side. On the other hand, I've only ever had one hamster and I'm not sure I'd be ready to have two just yet. Don't know; something to think about.

Interesting that yours get in sync a bit with each other, although it makes sense.

Once again, I'm reminded how individual these little creatures are! There certainly does not seem to be any kind of generic hamster with a predictable personality. Part of their charm, though.

Still planning on getting that cam!
