Default Re: Keeping your hamster cool

I got a shallow terracotta dish each (today) for my hamsters. I have flower pots, but suspect they may have been used as a toilet. So have taken them out and put in the new ones.

Where do people put theirs? On a shelf, under a shelf etc

At the moment they are under the water bottle.

Feel free to add more to this thread!
  • Make sure no hamster homes are in direct sunlight.
  • Try to make sure the room is cool, you could put a fan in for air flow (but not pointed right at the homes) If the room is too hot for you, it's most likely too hot for the hamster!
  • You can put cold packs next to the outside of a cage where it cannot be chewed, just on one side so the hamster can go near it if they want.
  • You can put ice cubes in front of a fan or near a cage to help cool the air.
  • Small plastic drinks bottles can be 3/4 filled with water, then chilled in a fridge or frozen in a freezer then either placed outside like a cool pack, or inside the hamster home wrapped up in a bit of loo roll ( so the hamster doesn't hurt itself on the cold (really important if frozen!).
  • Mugs, saucers or even tiles can be chilled in a fridge then placed into the hamster home, giving something they can lean against, go in, or lie on if they want. You could try to order some free tile samples, or get some marble coasters.

Remember not to go too far, only put a cooling thing in one spot of a home so the hamster can get away from it if it wishes.

If your hamster looks ill, do call a vet to get advice/an appointment.
