Default Questions?

Hi guys! Few questions for ya.

1) I want to let Percy run in his ball in the kitchen-dining room as it is huge and open. Only thing is that is where the cat and dog stay. Would their scents bother him?

2) Would he jump off my bed if I let him run around on it? The bed is around 2 feet high then a ledge then another 20 cm.

Thanks x

He may be too busy exploring to notice their scent. You would need to keep the dog and cat somewhere else so they don't chase or bark at the hamster as this will scare him.

Jumping off the bed could cause injury. A dry bath or playpen it a good way to let your hamster have another area to explore. If he is tame and easy to handle he could play on the bed, with tubes, wheel etc, but you need to supervise and be ready to get him before he jumps off.

When Sweep explores my bed I put toys and things where I don't want him to go and if he decides to climb over those and make his way towards the edge I just put my hands there to stop him or pick him up and move him! A previous ham I had, Baby Belle, used to LOVE the bed, but she was always so good and never strayed far from me so never went over the edge. I think as long as you watch him he should be ok

Ohh, of course the animals would be put outside, or somewhere.

I'll try him on the bed with strict supervision. Thanks for the replies x

Only reason I use a bed here is because I am not allowed (apparently!) to use the bath tub! Once I get my own place though I plan to use that as Sweep's playpen for cag cleans, though actually he is more settled in the carrier since I filled it almost full with substrate (from his playbox so it had his scent on) and buried a few wooden chews and a dog biscuit! He gets lost in there now LOL
