Default Re: A New Hamster

The 11cm wheel is way too small for any hamster, even a Robo. I'd go for a 17cm minimum/20cm one. A plastic one would be better unless you plastikote a wooden one first because Robos run marathons and leave a combo of wee and sweaty paw prints as evidence.

I quite like houses with a removable roof that can also double as a platform like the Ferplast sin guinea pig house. Robo Gordon had one of those but prefered the little wooden cottage type Monty's inherited and likes as well.
Important is that they are bottomless so they can tunnel down if they want.

The Ferplast guinea pig houses need to have the holes covered because they are big enough for a dwarf to get their head stuck in which dwarf Clarissa did the day after i had rescued her. I use Elmer's school glue which is non toxic and a flat chew they sell at [email protected]
