p.s. my favourite is the 1st cage. I love how the tube runs across the top of the doorway. The hamsters must feel like they're flying when they cross that 'skybridge'!

I was curious about why so many people were searching for this particular Rotastak Maxi Tunnel of Fun hamster gerbil mouse cage. I finally understood when I read this review from a buyer on a website...
"My hamster loves it" - 5 Stars *****
posted on 05/03/2010 15:35:11 by family-stanton

"I got this (rotastak maxi tunnel of fun hamster gerbil mouse cage) for my older hamsters as they are not very good with bendy tubes and they seem to manage very well - pricing was ok but bigger rotastaks are better value for younger hamsters although my hamster is very happy with this one." - (click here to visit the site he bought his cage from)
His comment really warmed my heart because it reminded me of lovely Hammu, who has since passed on. I recall how he couldn't climb as well as he got older.. so I completely understand how this owner must have felt, wanting to give his pet a better, more comfortable life.

With this is mind, I think it would make Good-Forward-Planning-Sense to own TWO Rotastak units for your pet, especially if it's a young, and join the two together to form a huge playground mansion!

Why? Because if you buy the 'Rotastak Maxi Tunnel of Fun hamster gerbil mouse cage' for it now, you can still use it when your pet grows old. Think about it.. if you have to buy another cage for your pet when it becomes older and less mobile anyway, why not get it now and let it enjoy while it can?

Give your pet its Best Life Ever. Don't regret all the things you could have done for your pet.

Taming your hamsters

Taming Hamsters

Taming hamsters requires patience, especially for certain breeds like the roborovski hamsters. I took 2-3 months before training Hamu and Hamsti to climb up my palm without trouble.

This is how I did it:

  1. Before feeding your hamsters, talk to them. Let them know you are approaching their cage and let them get used to hearing you call them.
  2. Put some treats/food at your fingers and slowly put it into the cage. Make sure you do not startle your hamster by moving too fast. Another thing to take note is, hamsters will be able to sense your fear. So if you are afraid of being bitten by your hamster, try to relax because there is a high chance that your hamster will take a nibble.
  3. Once it gets to the food on your finger, let it savour its food and do not make any sudden move. Otherwise, the hamster might get frightened and you have to wait for it to run back to your palm again.
  4. After 1 week of feeding them on your finger, it is time to progress. Spread the food towards your palm. Let it crawl towards your palm, sit and feast. (Shown in the pictures below) Alternatively, you can place the food on your palm, face the food towards the hamster and once half of its body climbs up to get the food, slowly lift your palm up. Your lovely hamster will climb up to your palm and get the remaining food.
  5. Do not try to grab your hamsters as they do not like it. Make sure that your hamster is not held at a great height in case it runs out of your palm and take a fall. All these steps can take up till a few months depending on the nature of your hamster.
