Default Yummy and Bin cages

On Saturday we went to the pet store to get some supplies for our two dwarves, when we saw the most gorgeous six month (I believe six months old) Syrian female. We both fell in love with her and he said if I wanted her I could bribe him (>_> Bribe? That means you want the hamster too!) On the way home in the car she chewed the carrier box and escaped, to climb over me while in the car and I just told her to go back in the box which she did. Then kept trying to get out of it while I was opening the front door!

My partner called her Yummy and she is currently in the Duna fun with the top shelf out, as she's an escape artist and has figured out if she pushes the back of the lid she can squeeze out. Yummy is also pretty skittish right now, any fast movements or sudden noises will make her jump and put on a burst of speed. We think she might have been a little bit abused as the other hamsters we got from the store aren't as nervous. I know the cage is too small for her but since she is nervous I figured the smaller size for now will help with taming.

Is the SAMLA containers from Ikea the best for both Syrians and Dwarves? I'm asking as so far our DIY project is a no go due to all the wood being too small, and the house needing maintenance all the time. As its a house boat keeping it floating is a bigger priority, or there would be no home for any of us. They need to be tall enough to keep Yummy from climbing out, there's no danger from cats (except next door's ginger tabby, but we keep a close eye on him whenever he slips in to the house) If its tall enough we can take our time putting mesh on the lids, the two dwarves are starting to get a little hectic now in their cages specially since Cindy is chewing everything at all hours. Might need to get one of thos crocidile things that were mentioned in another of my threads.

I want the best for my hamsters and bin cages are maybe the best option. Anyway here is two pictures of Yummy, the flash makes her look darker than she is.

^__^ She is certainly Yummy and a lot more food orientated than the other two hamsters we have.

On a side note we came back from IKEA today with three Samla containers, earlier in the week we got mesh, and dog treats that still fail at stopping bar and plastic chewing. Yummy and Cindy have already semi destroyed the dog chews o.o Fingers crossed we get the bin cages done by monday, and all the hammies transferred over to them!

Lol. Reading Yummy's story reminds me of how I took Chaos home when I got her. Yummy's gorgeous and I saw a similar coloured Syrian the other day and fell in love with it.

Since Chaos went to the Rainbow bridge, I took a break for a couple of years, but have recently picked up a B/W Syrian pensioner called Romeo...and he's already sparked my interest back into getting another lol.

Looking forward to reading more about Yummy and will look for your other threads as well.

Mweekie xx

I couldn't leave Yummy at the pet store licking her glass cage, though she's trouble I adore her to pieces.

I'm sorry you lost Chaos and I know that your new hamster will get lots of love, we started with one had three lost one and back to three now.

We finished the bin cages today, no platforms or anything because our DIY skills are limited but we got the mesh fronts done. Pictures to follow soon <3

FINISHED! All hammies are now in Samla bin cages from IKEA, the two dwarves looked around for a little then went straight to bed :/

Each one has a sand box but Yummy decided to try and destroy hers right away, I had to remove it for now and will find something else on the weekend to put sand in for her.

That hair clip is what keeps her wheel on the stand, I lost the clip that came with it. She's never tried to chew it funnily enough, and just doesn't bother with it at all.
