    So pleased

    By Halima on Apr 17, 2019

    I'm a first time hamster owner who was very on the fence about getting my Syrian a ball, but after losing him under my dresser a couple of times while letting him run free outside of the cage, I weighed my risk and decided it was 1) possibly hurt him trying to move the dresser to get him or 2) have him I'm a first time hamster owner who was very on the fence about getting my Syrian a ball, but after losing him under my dresser a couple of times while letting him run free outside of the cage, I weighed my risk and decided it was 1) possibly hurt him trying to move the dresser to get him or 2) have him possibly be hurt in a ball. I went with the latter. I decided on the 11.5 inch ball because I felt the 7 inch would be too small for a Syrian, but when I got it I thought it was huge. I decided to try it anyway because I still believed the next size down would be to small. Although he does look tiny in the ball, my shy hammy quickly got the hang of navigating so that he could almost stop the ball before running into stuff so any impact with furniture is minimal and he can even turn the ball in order to round corners! I placed him inside of it today and I felt like I couldn't get the lid on fast enough because he was ready to roll. Of course his favorite activity now that he has the ball is following me around, so now I have two dogs and a hamster in a ball around me at every turn, but that's ok lol Anyway I only leave him in his ball for 10-15 minutes at a time, but I feel completely comfortable during that time and feel he's having a nice time exploring as well. Only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because I've only had it about a week and I'm not sure yet how well it will hold up, but no problems yet. … more

    Broken, mouse almost got ate

    By DogLove123 on May 10, 2019

    I was so excited for my mouse to try this out, he loves running around in these clear balls. I was cleaning out his area while he was running around in the new ball, suddenly I hear squeaking. My cat got a hold of him! I was able to get my cats into a room, and put my Mousie back in his cage. Thankfully I was so excited for my mouse to try this out, he loves running around in these clear balls. I was cleaning out his area while he was running around in the new ball, suddenly I hear squeaking. My cat got a hold of him! I was able to get my cats into a room, and put my Mousie back in his cage. Thankfully no injuries. I was hoping maybe the cats figured out how to open the ball and it didn't just pop off, but I tested it out. While running around, the lid wasn't secure at all! It just popped off, even though I twisted the lid like I've done in the past. This one was so disappointing, but I love the size of it though. Perfect amount of room, lid is just too loose! … more
