    Hi, i've just found out today that our house is due to be re-wired. They start a week on wednesday. The trouble is.. Where on earth can i put all my hammies? The house will be very very dusty and not ideal to keep them here. I am going to ask the nextdoor neighbour if she can put all the cages in her spare room but if she says no then i'm screwed!! :eek:hmy:

    Any ideas as to where i can keep them??
    Thanks :)

    Oh dear, how long will it be for? alot of pet shop have adverts that say we can look after your small pets while on holiday, maybe this would be a good idea? sorry not sure what else i could advise, good luck!

    Yeah, you should definitely look into getting them out of there until the dust, well, settles. Poor things are very sensitive to things like that.

    I still haven't managed to find someone who will have them..

    I would never normally have this problem as i never go away..
    Even if i did, there would be someone else here to look after them..

    I have tried custardhams hamstery but they are away.. :(

    I need to get them out of the house for a week..

    Does anybody know of anyone who can look after them all for me whilst they do the re-wire? (there's 4 of them)

    If we'd have had some notice from them it would have been nice... they told us on wednesday.. they are coming a week tomorrow!! :eek:hmy:
