Can you move the cage to the coolest room, keep curtains shut in the day and windows open at night.

Offer cold cucumber and frozen veggies. There are many threads with helpful tips. Hopefully just one more day and we'll have some relief!
unfortunately she is in a detolf so not very portable! it seems to be cooling down weather wise now anyways and shes been acting normal besides that. I've brought in a fan which is helping to keep her cool. I'll make sure to buy some cucumber though to feed to both my hamsters as the rooms are still quite warm
