Default OK. NOW I'm Worried

Lola has been chewing on her cage the past few nights and last night when I took her out of the cage and she was crawling on me the cage was next to me. She reached over and started to chew on the bars and then literally jumped onto the outside of the cage and started to climb the cage and chew on the bars. Do I have an unhappy hamster? What do I do?

Click "go advanced" next to "post quick reply" and click the paperclip. There you can attach a photo.

The way i do is that i click on Post Reply - scroll down and click on Manage Attachments - then click on Choose File ( mine are in Gallery on my phone) - click on photo you want - then click on Upload and wait till uploaded then click on Close This Window top right which will take you back to your post with photo attached. You can then Submit Reply or view it first.

I believe that there are other ways of doing this but that's the only way i know.

Go advanced - scroll down to manage attachments and click. A new window opens. Click browse to upload files (they need to be resized to fit the forums - about 650 pixels wide).

You can upload five at a time. Close the window. Go to the paperclip at the top of the message box and click "insert all" then submit reply (your photos appear in your message).

It does sound a bit like she is trying to chew her cage bigger!

You can use something to just crop the image or select it and shrink it. I usually use paint or photoshop on PC, or procreate if it's on the iPad.

I find paint on Windows 10 the easiest and quickest way. Apps can be fiddly. If you can use Windows 10 then just right click your photo and select "open with" and choose Paint. Then in Paint select "resize". Next to the numbers box, change to pixels rather than percent and put 650 in the top box - the number in the bottom box changes automatically. Then "save as" (so it keeps your original photo the same size).

On Iphone I use an app called "Image Size" - but it;s a bit fiddly and the photos seem to come out much smaller on the forum page (despite pixel sizes apparently being the same!).

You can also upload an image to imgur.com and post the link it provides.
