This is my cage. An inescapable prison. Few have dared try…and…well…they actually succeeded pretty easily… :S
Do you see the second row, how it’s slightly larger than the rest? It actually measures a 1.3cm in height while the other rows measure 1.1cm…
and in that 0.2cm of extra space, my hamster Chandler escaped. In this picture, I placed a small wheel up to the cage with Chandler inside. While escape looked seemingly impossible, a few minutes of waiting and Chandler actually fits her tiny head between the 1.3cm of space….and escapes! I really have no idea how to keep her from escaping…except making her a little fatter on purpose but I feel that borderlines animal abuse. Sneaky hammy!
Let me explain why there are 4 wheels. Originally I had 2, a big purple one and a small red one. I wanted to buy another large wheel…and when I was at the store, I wanted a different color than the original purple wheel. So I got a red wheel, not really remembering the small red wheel. When I put the 3 wheels together, it was large red, small red, large purple. My OCD kicked in and I couldn’t stand the 2 reds beside each other…so I bought a small green wheel.
OCD. It isn’t pretty. And sometimes ridiculous…or maybe that’s just me.
