Hello and welcome to HC!

Congratulations to your new girl Ziggy!

There is a lot of helpful information on this friendly forum and people are always happy to answer any questions you may have.

I used to keep my hamsters in bin cages and have converted many storage boxes into hamster habitats.

Holes in the lid do not give enough ventilation though and lack of ventilation can lead to all sorts of problems including health problems for your hamster and expensive vet bills for you.

I always meshed the lid, a front window and a back vent but it may be easier for you to just mesh the lid which is necessary to keep your hamster healthy.

There are tutorials on youtube.
