I thought the same thing as wildsoda. My kids had hamsters and that cage needs regular, thorough cleaning. How do you clean the bottom part, and won’t the urine seep down into the seams and be absorbed by the particle board? I don’t think hamster cages should be made from potentially absorbent materials. I predict a very smelly living room in the near future!

When one has a hamster that does back flips or constantly runs in circles, s/he must house the hamster in a one level cage and remove any toys that may cause the hamster injury. If the case is extreme and the quality of your hamster’s life is not what is should be, then may be considered.

Finally, if you’re looking forÂ a cheap and easy solution – or a temporary materialÂ to use while you wait for your permanent hamster bedding to arrive – then it is ok to use paper in your hamster cage. You just need to ensure that the paper is non-toxic and not covered in ink. That said, it’s worth noting that paper will not do a good job of disguising odours. Your hamster cage will probably get very smelly if you use paper as a bedding!

Hamster pyometra is an infection of the uterus and the womb becomes infected. If you find some blood in the hamster's cage, you must not mistake pyometra with first breeding...meaning that if the hamster was recently bred for the first time, then there will be a small amount of blood (which is normal).ALLERGIES: Hamsters can become allergic to bedding (particularly cedar shavings), some foods, cigarette smoke, perfumes, furniture polish, etc. It is also thought that some allergies are hereditary. Increased scratching, sneezing, runny eyes, swollen feet, wheezing or white flakes around the eyes and ears after the introduction of something new are a sign of a possible allergic reaction. Remove whatever has been added to the cage or food and watch for signs of improvement. If there is no improvement within a couple of days, it might be the result of an infection and veterinarian advice should be sought.
