I dont think I will get another hamster. I couldnt stand it if something happened agian.
Buddy lived in a dessert empire hamster habbitat, not only a glass aquarium. The first layer of his house was a glass aquarium, with wood chips his running wheel and toys and his treat bin in the aquarium. Then on the top of his aquariam was a dessert empire hamster habbitat. They are made to fit the top of the aquarium and snap into place, the there is a hole in the floor that has a tunnel going down into the aquarium. Coming out the top and sides of the hamster habbitat are holes to add tunnels. Buddy had a tunnel going up with some quirky little pit stop things coming out of it.
The reason I put buddy on the shelf is because the first time they knocked him over he was in the bedroom out in the open. So after the first accedent I moved him into the kitchen, I have built in shelves and one shelf was just large enough to fit buddys cage, so he was inclosed on 3 sides due to the built in shelf.
I also put a heavy book on top of his hamster habbitat, so it could not be opened or knocked over. I duct taped his top tunnel to his cage as well. I dont really know how Jerry got him out, it seemed to me that it would have been impossible. The only thing I can think of is that his cage was weak due to the first fall.
it really is sad!
