Cool clay house for hamsters and other small rodents
House with removable roof: The Rodipet® EasyClean GOBi Ceramic House is made from durable quality ceramic and has a roof that can be removed for a quick check on the nest inside. We have created this hamster house on the model of Mother Nature. Observations made during Rodenti® Expeditions to the Mongolian part of the Gobi desert in 2008 and 2016 were essential in developing this species-appropriate high quality product.
Just like in Nature
The choices of both colour and shape of this product are based on the actual burrows of wild rodents. The house works particularly well when combined with a Ceramic Burrow and a connecting Tube. Such a setup allows the inhabitant(s) to create separate bed- and storage rooms betweeon which they can move under cover of the joining tube. Using the Ceramic Tube with Side Entrance, they can even slip in through a top-facing entry hole, just as they would do in the wild.

Nail care par excellence
Our pets' wild cousins run over sticks and stones and dig tunnels, which naturally shortens their nails. In human care, this natural process usually happens at a much smaller scale, if at all.
For animals with a strong urge to gnaw
Rodipet® EasyClean GOBi Ceramic Houses are just perfect for pet rodents with a particularly strong urge to chew, such as dwarf hamsters and fancy mice: They are made from a very hard and tough type of clay and the thick walls make this product even sturdier.
EasyClean: truly easy to clean
The bottom part of the Rodipet® EasyClean GOBi Ceramic House is glazed, so your rodent's urine will just flow off it instead of soaking in as it would with wooden or unglazed ceramic houses. Moreover, the houses can be thoroughly cleaned by hand or in the dishwasher, giving them an extraordinarily long lifespan. By leaving the top part unglazed, the house remains breathable, keeping the living climate inside the nest healthy.
Das Rodipet® EasyClean Burrow setup
When combined with a Ceramic Tube and a second Ceramic House or Burrow(not included), species-appropriate burrows can be created: in those, our pet rodents can live in a subterranean burrow made up of several tunnels and chambers, similar to what they would themselves dig in the wild. Many pets enjoy using those multiple chambers to create separate sleeping and storage rooms. If the tube is buried in a thick layer of bedding with the side entrance facing sideways, your pet can even use the EasyClean Ceramic Burrow system as the beginning of their very own home-dug bedding burrow!
Why is the entrance 55mm in width?
A fully grown dwarf hamster with stuffed pouches, depending on their species, can be up to 5 cm wide. If the house's entrance is too narrow, the animal has to squeeze through. During this process, grains or other carried materials may prick and injure the pouches, potentially leading to pouch abscesses. Thus, we recommend an absolute minimum of 5 cm for all entrance holes - if your hamster chooses to partly close them up with soft bedding that is alright.
The lid of the Rodipet® EasyClean GOBi Ceramic House features a hollow, which is the perfect for offering some fresh vegetables or to place a little ceramic dish. Our tip: On hot summer days, pour a little water straight into the hollow. As it evaporates, it keeps the inside lovely and cool.
