    The bath is a good place for a hamster to run around in :p

    I can't have Sausage on my bed... he runs towards the end and threatens to jump off it :rolleyes:

    WOW!
    Super duper quick replies.... LOVE IT!!

    I was thinking about getting a little ham proof fence/gate thing, to put up in my room (obvis closing doors etc) to let zee hammy run around, to get a break from the ball.
    Good idea???

    thankies

    It's just a cage made out of a plastic box like this one:

    [​IMG]

    You just need to make holes in it and add some cage wire and possibly some platforms :)

    Btw I don't know who's cage this is, it was on the hamster central forums :D So sorry if it belongs to someone here!!

    A bin cage is a cage made out of plastic storage boxes but with mesh inserted so they have air vents...

    I have two for my dwarfs but i dont use a lid as they are really deep and they cant climb out..

    This is the box i use

    Are you using one as a cage? You can get the mesh and stuff from Wilkinsons or probably somewhere like B&Q but I don't know. :)
