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.

The unglazed surfaces of Rodipet® EasyClean Ceramic items are great substitutes for those rough surfaces and offer pets an opportunity to shorten their nails just by walking on or through them, avoiding complications that can occur from overgrown nails.

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. Moreover, the houses can be thoroughly cleaned by hand or in the dishwasher, giving them an extraordinarily long lifespan.

By applying glaze to the bottom part of the house, moisture cannot soak in as it would with wooden or unglazed ceramic houses. By leaving the top part unglazed, the house remains breathable, keeping the living climate inside the nest healthy.

Why is the entrance 55 mm in width?

A fully grown dwarf hamster with stuffed pouches, depending on their species, can be up to 5.5 cm in width. 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 55 mm for all entrance holes - if your hamster chooses to partly close them up with soft bedding that is alright.

Versatile hollow

The lid features a hollow, which is the perfect for offering some fresh vegetables, main food or treats

Particularly interesting: During the summer, the hollow may be filled with a little water - this creates a great living climate inside even on the hottest of days. A physical phenomenon works as your pet's personal air conditioning: In order for the water to evaporate, it needs energy, the most readily available form of which is heat. To pass from liquid to gas, water will draw this heat energy from any body it touches - thus, this body (in this case the lid and hence the entire house) loses warmth and cools down.

Perfect 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.

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!

The animation shows the EasyClean House in combination with an EasyClean Tube and an EasyClean Burrow. This arrangement is particularly suitable in groups of pets (e.g. mice), as there are two ways out if an argument occurs.
