Welcome to the August 2020 cage clean! Last month Beanie became a senior (18 months old), and her cage setup has been simplified to suit her needs. I won’t be changing it up too much, but I will do a deep clean and exchange some toys. I will be reusing the black cheese slate, because since it’s so hot out I’m sure she’ll enjoy cooling off on it.
I will be linking any mentioned DIYs I have posts on at the end of the post 🙂
First I removed all the toys and bedding from the cage. Beanie came out of her nest on her own while I was doing this.
I sanitized the cage with vinegar/water and put in the clean substrate.
Next I gave her a new nest box, which I’ve fitted with a tube for an entryway.
Now I added in the wheel, slate and a short bendy bridge.
Then I added her chew block (smeared with yogurt drop), her baseball glove, heart-shaped dish, cute little house, and water bowl.
Finally I added a small Two-Tiered Tower, plastic barn, food, and shredded tissue around to complete the look.
And that’s it! Thank you for reading this rather short blog post, I hope it may inspire a setup for your own hammy 😍
