We were looking for some fun blog hops to participate in and we ran across one titled Monday Mischief. It’s hosted by some great doggies, but all animals are invited to participate. Even with only one cat and one hamster, there’s plenty of mischief going on around here, so we thought we’d join in.
This is Nutmeg hamster’s habitat. He has a huge 6-level cage, play area, and a ball to run around the house. Apparently he’s not satisfied with his housing arrangement and believes the play area is a jail yard. He’s learned he can attempt a jail break by using the brick wall to help him climb over his fence.
I used to be able to put Nutmeg in his play area and glance over every couple minutes to be sure he was ok. I stayed within a few steps just in case Raven came to check things out, but it was to intercept Raven. Now that Nutmeg has learned how to escape, I’ve become the jailer and sit next to his play area and grab him once he reaches the top of his fence. I have a second fence, so I a may have to set that up as an extra safety precaution. Hamster on the loose is never a good thing!
