Beanie the Hamster

Hello and welcome to this week’s post! I recently purchased a few different sizes of popsicle sticks from my local dollar store, and I was very eager to create something with them.

Greetings! This week I will be demonstrating how I created this really neat popsicle stick bridge for Beanie, my Syrian hamster.

Don’t worry, I’ll write up some posts about those upgrades when they’re …. Read More
Greetings, and welcome to this week’s post. I’ll be showing you how I created this two-story platform for hamsters. It is more directed towards dwarf and Chinese hamsters, but it the size is acceptable for smaller Syrians.
It has a little fenced-in upper platform with a ramp leading to and from it. Below is a larger platform perfect for a food dish to rest.
Let’s get into the tutorial!
