    Has anyone got any ideas on a water bottle for a zoozone? The little ones have just got up for a drink and I don't think they could get any :(
    I think their used to the silver ball water bottles but I didnt think one of those would fit so I got them a ferplast sippy..

    Aww thats so cute! I have got a little step kind of thing there but they seem to be able to reach it fine they just can't get any water. The nozzle needs to be pushed up to get water ( which I didn't realise when I bought it :rolleyes: ) and I don't think they are strong enough to push it.. Especially when they've just woke up and stumble out the house all bleary eyed :001_wub:

    Ferplast Sippy's are crap bottles, most small animals struggle to push the metal bit up to get any water. Their also a pain in the ass to fill, as you can't stand them up, and if you try to just pour the water in it goes everywhere. Utterly crap design.

    I know I wish I'd just stuck with the normal ones now like!
    Well I've got one now set up in the cube, so just have to wait till a thirsty hammy emerges now :)

    If your bottle won't fit in the cube, you could always put it under the bottle hole like a step. Those cubes usually have at least on solid face.

    Mine have holes in each side-really annoying when you're trying to pick it up with a little mouse inside who keeps trying to get out of each hole in turn LOL
