I already wrote in another post – Why do hamsters need Hamster Wheels – about the urge of hamsters to move and to run – a lot! That‘s one natural instinct of hamsters.
The other instinct is about playing. Hamsters love to play, they love to entertain themselves. As your pet they need be offered items that makes them play. A hamster house is certainly a great way to promote your hamster’s playfulness. Even better when it is a deluxe hamster house.
You know the picture. A hamster running endlessly in a hamster wheel. At first sight it might look weird and even compulsive. I can assure you it‘s far from being obsessive.
To prove that we need to take a look at wild hamsters and their behavior and needs. And then I‘d like to point out some aspects that a good hamster wheel needs to have in order to be perfect for your hamster and for you – your ears as a matter of fact.
You don’t know how funny it can be to see bunnies when they play, run around, chase a toy ball or chew on it until you watched them. Rabbits are very playful and exploratory, and they need to live their playful side and drive to explore in order to stay mentally and physically healthy and happy.
Chew toys are perfect for rabbits because they provide a big variety of material to chew on and to play around with. Rabbits are curious animals, eternally curious. So, they need to find out what the things are they encounter, and they want to find it out by playing with it and by chewing it. It’s their instinct. You can observe this behavior also with wild rabbits outside your home.
Water feeders are perfect because you don’t need to worry about water dripping on the floor. Your pets – cat, small dog, rabbit, guinea pig, ferret – can drink of it whenever they want to. For your pet it is very easy to learn how to drink from a water feeder. A water feeder is a must for all pets living in cages where you cannot place any open water bowl.

When we see hamsters, these cute little furry pets, we might not think of their needs. But they have them, so much so that they answer with health issues when their needs aren’t answered properly.
Hamsters have incredible energy and need a lot of running and jumping. Knowing about this need will help understand why hamsters just love having great playgrounds where they can move around as much as they want.
