I have 2 robos. One just escaped his cage, I have no idea how and I didn’t even hear or notice it happen and was even in the room! I found out that they seem to be running on the wheel as though they were trying to get to the bars to climb them. When I moved the wheel, they did the same, except they fell off the other side of the wheel instead (saucer wheel). In a panicked fear they might escape again, I’ve cooled their playpen around the bars and pray they don’t get out while I sleep. I do feel that the cage is too small but I have to wait a week before I can purchase one...anyone have advice for what I can do in the meantime to ensure they don’t escape??

@Téa still it’s too small for Syrian the minimum is 450 inch squared floor space. Try 30 by 18 cage or bigger.

My Syrian hamster keeps chewing the cage but I don't know why. She comes out almost every day. She has 10 inches of substrate, and the cage is 1209 square inches of floorspace. She also has a 28 cm trixie wheel amd four different chews and lots of toys and hides. Do you have any ideas as to what I could do?

I have my hamster in a small rectangular tank and I had given him a wood stick to chew on and yet he tries to start biting on the corners of the tank. What should I do?

Our hamsters had her babies approx. 17 days ago. I Hve been feeding the 5 babies since about 9 days, as they were so active. The problem I that the cage is Now very dirty and smelly. (I have taken out Some filthy & soaking wet bedding & sawdust) When an I clean it properly andis it too early to remove 6all of them to a clean cage?

My new Syrian hamster began chewing bars on her second day home. I’m not supposed to touch her for 2-3 days to let her adjust. She has 4 chew toys (I only keep 2 in her cage at a time) and one even has a hard nut inside but she still chooses the bars! My cage is larger than the recommended size (I believe it’s 24” by 12”?). Is she stressed being in a new environment? Should I be worried?
