As for the hideout area, it's just the right size for my dwarf hamster, Mikage. It's one of his absolute favorite places to curl up and take a nap (adorable pictures provided :)).
The bottle itself works just fine, but the nozzle just so low. While I try to keep it raised as much as I can without it blocking the aforementioned cage door, Mikage usually has to lower or turn his head to get his drink. He doesn't seem to mind it much, but it's not ideal. Furthermore, while I've never had problems with it leaking by itself, for a whole month after I got it I would often find it touching the bedding (as the bedding would naturally get moved around as Mikage walked around or dug in it) and the bedding would end up getting wet. Sometimes it was only a little damp, but there were a few scary moments when I would come home to discover that the bottle had almost completely emptied itself out and gotten all of the bedding soaked. I would constantly worry that if I didn't check it regularly Mikage would get sick, since wet bedding can easily give a hamster a cold.
I haven't had that problem recently though. I added a tray of pebbles just beneath the nozzle with the intention of giving him both a stable surface to sit while he drinks and some rocks to naturally file his nails whenever he does so. I don't how much I can say about the results on his nails since they're just some decorative pebbles meant for flower vases (don't worry, I washed them before use) that aren't all that rough, but it seems to have almost completely solved the bedding problem. Mikage will sometimes just sit the rocks while he grooms himself so he doesn't seem to mind having them there and he doesn't bury them either, so it keeps the bedding away from the nozzle.
In conclusion, while I may not be a fan of the nozzle height, it should be an easy fix for most people (the type of cage I had just made it a little more troublesome for me), the product didn't leak, and Mikage himself gives this bottle--or, at least, the hideout--his stamp of approval!
Says it's made for mice, but I will recommend it for dwarf hamsters; would definitely be too small for a Syrian though.
I read reviews where folks just got water bottles that either leaked or didn't work, but that's true of any rodent water bottle. I also read reviews where the little ones died of dehydration - no one can just fill the bottle and walk away. It must be checked daily, at minimum, and tested out first to be sure it's working. I even test mine every time I fill them. Just a few taps to ensure hydration. So you can never blame the water bottle when it's the caregiver's job to watch over them. If I see the water has not gone down, I check it. All it takes is a glance and a minute of time. And if I hear constant tapping for water, I know to check it - an obvious problem needs fixing.
I feel sad for the people who lost their rodents and blamed the bottle, but it's like cooking on the stove, walking away for an hour, and blaming the pan for burning the food. We all need to authentically show up for the little ones in our care. All lessons are gifts so we know better next time.
Probably the biggest problem is that they cannot move the little ball in the stem with their small tongues, so no water can come out. It's simply too heavy for mice, which stinks for me because i have to figure something different out for when i leave town.
I strongly suggest making a smaller, easier version for the smaller rodents. I doubt this will happen seeing that this is made in China and came in some really weird Chinese packaging.
About how it works: don’t fill it to the brim leave a little bit of space in between the top when filling to create pressure. There is a whole on the blue cap top to let air in to crest this pressure. If it’s a full of water as you can make it then no water will come out. Or loosen the spout but then you could have it leaking. Otherwise tape up the hide/house/cubbie hole if you got a Syrian aka golden hamster.
I use it as you can see for Andy’s play pin. Do tape up the hole if youDONT want your Syrian hammy to get hurt.
