The September Cage Makeover (2020)

The Remains of the August Makeover

Welcome to the September 2020 Cage Makeover! As usual, after a month Beanie’s last makeover is dwindling, and it’s in need of a clean. I hope this post interests you and that it inspires you for setting up your own hammy’s cage!

The Substrate Setup

First I did the usual, removing all the dirty substrate, adding in the clean stuff, and adjusting it to begin setting up Beanie’s home.


Since I wanted this setup to be more naturalistic, I submerged two bark caves in the substrate for hiding and burrowing from.

Another Hidey

I then added Beanie’s wheel, rock, and for good measure, my corner hidey house.


I now put in a Bran-Bowl, chew block, bendy bridge, water bowl, and food dish. Although I scatter feed Beanie I do like to put a food dish, which Beanie enjoys sitting in.

The Final Touches

And for the final touches, some shredded tissue for nesting material, and food.

The Makeover Completed

Voila! The setup is complete. I love the natural appearance, and just how fresh it looks!
