Hey NancyNancy said:Usually they climb the cage when they are bored. Does he have a wheel?
You can stop cage climbing by weaving stiff plastic in and out of the bars to a level of about 10" from floor. Plastic report covers or the dollar store stiff plastic place mats work great.
How terrible!LizardGirl said:Kean, I had a very similar experience with my first dwarf hamster. She landed odd after a fall, broke her back, and died in my hands.
Look at Nancy's post about the ferret cage. (just a post or two above) You'll see it there.ByeByeBeautiful1 said:bah my hedgie is doing this now and im freaking out because I can hear her doing it atm and im broke until Friday and im working tomorrow and its keeping me up because im worried.. >.< do u place the mats on the inside or outside of the cage? how exactly do u do it? ive never had a xcage animal before.
I have no idea why but my photobucket is empty. I can't find the photo of the fuzzy cage which best showed the plastic around the sides, but here is a photo of the FN after it became for the hedgehogs. It shows the plastic woven in and out of the bars.ByeByeBeautiful1 said:i tried it says the photos not there or something silly :/ im buying her a bigger cage tomorrow . I am hoping this will prevent climbing because right now i cant fit her wheel in with her litertray, food , water and hut even though the cage met the required measurements..... Oh well Im just hoping it will help maybe shes climbing cause shes bored. im more freaked out about when im at work for 8 hours and all last night i was worried when i heard her playing that id hear her fall or see her climb. i probably sound crazy im just new
