For my dwarf hamster, I use a large fish tank and bought a screen top for it. It's incredibly easy to clean and fun because you can see everything that your little buddy does.

One little project that I would suggest is to build a multiple-story house for your hamster out of clean cardboard: Using a clean, thick cardboard, a boxcutter & non-toxic glue... it's kind of like constructing a gingerbread house where you have to cut each side and attatch them. Make different windows, doors & entrances for them to climb through. Use the non-toxic glue to attach and hold the pieces together with sewing pins. Remove the pins when it dries!

It gives them something to play in, climb & chew on and will replace the lack of levels that you would normally find in a cage. Both you & your ham will absolutely LOVE it.

My daughters would only put the bottom of the cage inside a large rubbermaid container that the hamsters could not climb out of. The bedding and food would still sit in the cage bottom but it could climb out into the rubbermaid also. A wheel on a stand can go in the cage. This is much easier to clean and change litter instead of tearing apart a cage all the time.
