It looks fine to me .

While your ham is away for up to a week it's the perfect chance to give it a good degunge incase anything in there was causing his rash/infection! Just to be on the safe side

Perhaps that part that's made from lolly sticks could hurt his underside if he catches his ribs climbing over the top of it? It's probable OK to be honest I'm just being too safe lol.

And freeze those stones for a few days while he's out to kill any possible bacteria that may be on them.

Thank you!

This is actually my other hamsters cage ( Taro ) She's very similar to Haru but about 3 months older! But yes I will be cleaning her cage and Harus while he is away. c:

Ah OK sorry! Taro is lovely by the way, I love his eyes! That lolly stick thing is cool did you make it yourself?

I know you've got good experience with hams but always consider how fragile they can be internally and externally before you put homemade/non high street kind of toys and accessories in there and you won't go wrong . Some people catch diseases off things from the ground so the chance of non wild ham catching something nasty is quite high!

It's not a Syrian shawny so I think the wheel is OK

No worries! Thank you, me too. I adopted Taro from a breeder

Yes I made the lolly stick house myself! Got the idea off of watching loads of DIY hamster toys on YouTube aha

Okay! Thank you for the advice c: I'll make sure the rocks are very clean.

I tend to swap the wheel from time to time, to my flying saucer... However, she runs so fast it can get very loud!
