My son got a pet hamster and we thought this would be a good way to let the hamster explore without escaping in our house. The first thing I noticed as the little rodent starting roaming around is that he was leaving a trail of little rodent poop in his path, which was dropping out of the little slits in the ball. YUCK!! I told my son to take the thing outside because I''m not cool with rodent poop on my floors. Once I told him to take it outside, both my son and the hamster decided they weren''t interested in the exercise ball after all. Which is just as well, because the ball (without the hamster inside) fell off of an ottoman and cracked in half anyway. After less than a month, the hamster ball is in the trash!

Ok first off I have read people complaining about their animal peeing out of it, but really how can you make a round ball with holes for breathing and allow the pet to safely roam the house without having the issue of the pet possibly peeing a tiny bit?! I don''t find this a concern, because if you keep your house clean then all you have to do is swifter the floor after the pet! It''s a safe way to allow your pet to get exercise and a safe way to allow the pet to hang out with the kids especially if you have a cat!! We love ours. This is the third one purchased in the last two years but to the products defense it was used in a classroom with 23 kids and sent home on the weekends with kids! So this is the first one purchased with only my children and guessing it should last the life of the pet and longer! I mean if you drop it off the ottoman like the one lady said, sure it''s going to brake, I mean it''s not meant for a gerbil or hamster to go flying with it! But under normal use then it should last, if taken care of. Its easy to clean and if cleaned after each use it smells fine. Simply wipe with a baby wipe or run a little warm water and soap on it. Don''t use chemicals or you will kill your pet! Very happy with my purchase. Kaytee makes good products

My Chipmunk loves it
Reviewed in the United States on September 7, 2015
My cat brought home an orphan chipmunk at 2 weeks of age and I have raised it. He can now safely run all over the house with 4 dogs and a cat. Thought this might be too big or too heavy for him but it''s actually perfect. I have had no issues with the lid coming off.

My hamster loves to run around in it. At 7 inches, she barely fits into it. She is always in a curved position, which can''t be comfortable, but she''s used to it. She has been eating away at the plastic from the inside somehow, and now the latch is not as tight. I had to put a piece of tape on the outside. Also, I feel the glow in the dark feature is useless as I need to see where she is so I don''t kick her or send her flying down the basement stairs. The ball gets pretty cloudy over time. Needs a better latching system. She escaped once before I was taping it.

The product is great. Ours did come apart once, but my son saw it so our Hammy didn’t escape. The bad thing is that if our Hammy stops and pees, it has gone right through the crack, leaving a tiny but very smelly puddle. A parent would have to follow it around and clean up messes, and I just can’t do that and don’t trust my children to clean something like that up to my standards. So... we don’t use it anymore. Expect to clean it out after each use. I have to say, it’s a riot watching them roll around in it!

Update Jan 20, 2020: My 2nd ball lasted just one month. Multiple cracks, scratched to check, after just normal use for maybe 30-60 minutes per day.

========
It''s thin, cracks easily, doesn''t last long.

I looked around at other Hamster balls, and apparently they just don''t make them like they used to. I looked at the pet chains, and those are more expensive and aren''t designed well - air slots are big enough to trap a foot or toe, and the lids don''t stay on well.

At least this Kaytee ball the lid stays on (if you are careful to line up the tabs properly). And it glows in the dark a little bit, which isn''t really needed since we''re not going to put her in a dark room.

The biggest problem is the air slots are the perfect size to trap poop. But I''m buying again because can''t find a suitable alternative.

This ball works great for our hamster. The door is easy to open and closes securely, and is big enough to fit a 10 year old’s hand to place him inside when he’s reluctant to go in.

Unpackaging the ball was a struggle, exclusively because the door was taped in place with 3 strips of clear adhesive tape that would not peel off. It took 6-8 minutes of scraping with a fingernail to get one piece of tape off, and that spot looked terrible when we gave up. For the remaining two strips of tape, we used a sharp box cutter to cut the tape at the door edge and kept the tape in place.

Well, it is a rodent exercise ball and I don''t know how much fancier you need to get. This size is roomy for my kids'' hamster and it''s been so far more durable than our last ball. My one complaint is the lid. The first time, we didn''t get the lid on as securely as we thought, and the hamster escaped (in our defense, he is something of an escape artist). So, you really have to check the lid to make sure it''s actually on.

Lid flew open and hamster fell out. This has happened twice, the second time my cat swooped in and grabbed the hamster in the blink of an eye. He''s okay, but come on... the lid was on as it''s supposed to be, so that shouldn''t have happened.
