Oops! With so many playgrounds currently i got confused last night and forgot that Jack was still out in the upstairs hall one.
What threw me was that Jack had asked to come out again after Rory who is usually the last one out because he gets up quite late.
I tidied up downstairs and spend time with Rodney on a towel on my lap before going upstairs to tidy up. And that's when i noticed Jack's open cage!
No sign of Jack until i called him and he appeared from the door/wall gap looking sleepy.
Luckily Jack is such a laid back hamster who will find a comfy dark corner and go to sleep if no one puts him back.

Aww, he found a corner to sleep in! How cute. Luckily he did not get up to mischief!

They've gotten up to plenty of mischief before so i'm aware.

The shoerack needs to be moved back so no climbing hamster can jump over the stair barrier as demonstrated by Rory in his younger days.

The other doors need to be firmly shut or Clive will push it open. It's funny when i do remove the devider and he's on the other side pushing with his little paws to help.

A towel needs to block off the gap under the toilet door to keep a small hamster out. Clarissa showed me how surprisingly flat a small hamster can go to squeeze through.

And that's only the hall playground.

I am amazed Clive is strong enough to push the door open! I think robos must not be as strong as no way could Orko do that.

It was ajar while i went in and out thinking he wouldn't notice but he pushed himself through. He kept jumping up the properly closed door for ages knowing that there's another room behind it.

Jack is the most relaxed hamster i've ever met. I just had both my hands and the little scoop in his cage cleaning up the poops from his wicker tunnel.
He very briefly sniffed in direction hands then attended to the much more pressing business of eating chilled Ella's kitchen dairy free rice pudding with bananas and strawberries.

Jack sounds amazing. The bond he has with you is wonderful.

He was tame when i bought him off a woman whose child had lost interest. Just as well because he didn't even have a wheel and he loves his wheel.

I always say he joggs rather than runs. He doesn't stop, sniff and start like many hamsters do but joggs keeping the same, steady pace until he's had enough. His nose always points to the left and he keeps to a rythmn.

I find it relaxing to watch him on his wheel. Jack is quite a therapeutic hamster. He's so big and lovely to stroke.

It really saddens me to think of a hamster not having a wheel. Their wheel is so special to them.

I love his jogging style! It is like he has a left leaning gait He sounds so precious.

it sounds like my syrian can learn a bit from Jack! Daisy is absolutely insane, I need to babyproof every single thing when i let her run around my bedroom. the other day I noticed that whenever I assumed she was just having some fun with the curtain behind my bed, she really had chewed quite a few holes in them. some holes were super high up, I hadnt realized she was climbing so high! luckily they were pretty old curtains and the chewed up areas werent anywhere visible but just goes to show how much enrichment some hamsters need! my fault really for not setting up a proper playpen and giving her access to my entire bedroom
