he got out of his hamster ball awhile ago and we were frantic, but the cats didn't seem to think anything of it. now i tape the ball shut, just in case.
once in awhile our littlest cat will observe the hamster in his cage, and they'll lay on the cage now and again, but other than that, they don't pay him much mind.
patches is oblivious top the cats. it's cute.
i can let him run around on the floor and the cats just pass on by. 'course i'm right there with him.
So you got Patches AFTER the kitties... whoa!! You have done a fine job making a peace between them, compliments!! But I can imagine your panic when he got out of the hamster ball.... it happened to us before too and the whole house got turned upside down for 2 hours before we finally found him snoozing in one of Cris's shoes!! Maybe I will get a very young kitten, and raise him as a friend of hamsters!!

We too have a cat and hampster. When I first brought Rollie home our cat Trinket was all into him......nosing around the cage. We put a heavy angel figurine that is lying down on top of the cage so that Trinket couldn't get the lid off. We also put the cage on top of a console table......making it difficult for this fat cat (minimum 20 pounds) to get up on the table.
Rollie loves to roll around in his ball. At first Trinket would follow after him but now she just kind sits back and watches. We've had Trinket for 3 years now....she was 5 when we got her according to the previous owner. We've had Rollie for 2 years now. And I'm happy to announce no disasters have come about them co-existing together.

And even if he is safe in the cage, he may well get too stressed out if he see a cat hanging about constantly in the vicinity... How did you solve the problem??

1-7. Reading. I am a voracious reader
8. Walking
9. Talking with Freinds over bottles of wine. I have several groups of freinds who just love to sit around and eat, drink and talk for hours. We don't need games or entertainment other than our minds and mouths.
10. Writing. Believe it or not, the computer has made this harder for me.
