Hamster Habitat Perfection

Just for the heck of it, I figured I would give you a visual of a bin cage. Hamster habitat perfection, if you were to ask me. This is Sassafras' bin. I used to use Carefresh, a bedding composed of recycled material, it's great for odor control, very absorbant, but very expensive. And it's too clumpy to burrow in. I now use Aspen which is like 4 dollars a month per cage, and it smells nicer, nice and woodsy, and is fairly absorbant, and they like burrowing in. Aspen is in her bin in these pics. I change around the layout of her bin occasionally. I clean it out completely every 2 or 2 and a half weeks. The white stuff is toilet paper for nesting material, the green thing is a Greenie, for her to chew on.

I think this bin is 32 inches by 19 inches. I think. Can't remember. It's on my old keyboard stand.

This is the lid. I've put more holes in it since then. You can also cut out part of the lid and attach wire mesh with rivets, but seeing as my cat loves to perch on the lid, I'm not sure that would be such a great idea in my situation.

The inside of Sassy's bin. She was in her ball at the time.

Now for Dexter's bin. (Yeah I named him Dexter, aka Dex.) The lid cracked when I drilled the holes. Zoey loves sitting on this one because she can watch him through the top. The bin is on top of Tucker's crate at the foot of my bed.

The inside of his bin. They like to chew on toilet paper rolls. Since this pic he has made a nest under the water bottle and in the wooden house.

So yeah, there ya go. =) There are alot nicer cages than this. Some people use tanks or bins and add them together and put all sorts of cool stuff in there. This is pretty simple, but satisfactory to a hamster. I think.

Now I must go continue school. Blech.

I am the same with the shelters. I volunteer at one so I try to help out with the small animals since they get the least amount of attention.

I have two hamsters already so a third was hard to get my mom to say yes, but she finally did. :D
