Default Worrying..

My hamster Honey was just recently moved into a much larger cage to fit her 12 in. Wheel in- but I'm concerned. She seems to have been scratching and maybe biting at the two bottom sides of the bin cage. It seems quite flimsy- unlike the other one- and I don't want her to tear a hole into it. What should I do?

What is she biting at? It's hard to imagine what she would be able to get a hold on with her teeth in a bin cage. If she's scratching at it I wouldn't think she'd manage to make a hole.
It may just be because it's new & she's exploring her boundaries & adjusting to the new cage.
Give her plenty to distract her, toys, whimzee dog chews, try scatter feeding or hiding food in little cardboard parcels so she has to forage & work at it.

Thank you!! I went to look at it and it there's no marks or anything. I added more of her favorite chews (sticks), too. I'll try scatter feeding her and giving her some whimzee dog chews!
