Cold store Granite Cico for rodents!

cool for rodents during hot days The Koelhuis Graniet Cico is a versatile house that provides cooling in the summer. The 15 cm variant is a multi -room house. The 26 cm variant is a spacious one-room house. The roof is covered with a granite stone, which provides cooling during hot days. Granite has cooling properties because it stays cold. Especially useful in the summer when temperatures rise. During hot days, rodents can lie on the roof and cool off. In winter, the stone can be turned over and help with the wear of the nails. The back of the stone is quite rough.

Can rodents tolerate heat well?

Rodents have only a low heat tolerance. In nature, the animals retreat to the cooling, underground burrow when it is warm - this effect can be simulated with the granite roof. In the summer, the granite cooling stone offers a pleasant cooling.

❤ TIP ❤ Moss works like a sponge. Saturated with water, it retains the refreshing liquid for hours, releasing it slowly and continuously, keeping the fine capillaries of the granite slabs moist and cool for a long time. During evaporation, a physical phenomenon automatically lowers the environment: a wonderful climate!

Are the houses suitable for Hamsterscaping?

Yes for sure! The Cico houses are very suitable for Hamsterscaping ! Hamsterscaping is mainly about a natural interior that is geared to the natural needs of the animals. As in the wild, a multi-room house* gives the animals several rooms. One of these needs is being able to take shelter. Small rodents are prey animals that like to flee and hide. Not only do they do this when something frightens them, but in general they also like to have several hiding places.

We always think it's very nice to put a piece of dried moss on the roof or plateau, that gives a very nice natural look to the house and fits perfectly in a
natural decor!

Why a multi-room house* for small rodents?

Small rodents such as mice and dwarf hamsters like to keep a food supply close to their nest. In the wild, the animals live in burrows and have a special room for the collected food, which we call the pantry. The multi-room houses thus imitate the natural habitat of the animals and give the rodents the opportunity to use several rooms.

For group animals (Mouse), the multi-room houses have an additional advantage, being able to avoid each other in the event of a disagreement or argument. Although group animals like to be together, there can be disagreements from time to time that make the animals less comfortable with each other's presence. Multiple rooms are ideal for these moments and the animals can retreat to their own room.

Why a removable roof?

Thanks to a removable roof you can take a look inside the house without disturbing the nest. You can then check whether there are older food stocks that need to be removed, especially fresh vegetables are very perishable. With a removable roof this is done quickly and the small rodents are not disturbed because you do not have to lift the whole house. In addition, the nest can be inspected undisturbed if there are offspring.

❤ TIP ❤ The stone has a fairly rough bottom. In winter, the rodents do not need cooling, but can still use the stone to wear down their nails.

What is the advantage of the flat roof?

The flat roof of the House has the advantage that it is a stable place to place, for example, a small food or drinking bowl, but it is also a nice place to put down a snack, for example.

What animals is the house suitable for?

The 15 cm house is a small house that is only suitable for small rodents such as: Mice and Dwarf Hamsters . The 26 cm house is a lot bigger and is suitable for both Mice and Dwarf Hamsters, but also for Syrian Hamsters (Golden Hamsters) , Gerbils and Rats .

Can these houses be used for group animals?

Yes you can! For group animals (Mouse) we always recommend to place at least one large house in the enclosure in which all animals fit together. Group animals like to be together and often hide together and sleep together. By offering the animals at least one large house like this, we meet this important natural need.

Are the openings big enough for the cheek pouches?

The smaller house has an opening with a diameter of about 4 cm, which is unfortunately too small for Dwarf Hamsters (Roborovski Dwarf Hamster, Russian Dwarf Hamster, Campbelli Dwarf Hamster, Chinese Dwarf Hamster) and Hamsters (Syrian Hamster / Gold Hamster) to pass through the opening with full cheek pouches. walk. The larger house has an opening with a diameter of about 7 cm, which is large enough for Dwarf Hamsters (Roborovski Dwarf Hamster, Russian Dwarf Hamster, Campbelli Dwarf Hamster, Chinese Dwarf Hamster) and Hamsters (Syrian Hamster / Gold Hamster). It is very important that the openings of a house are large enough. If the entrances to a hamster house are too small, the hamster will not be able to enter the house with full cheek pouches or will have to squeeze through them. As a result, the hoarded grains can damage the mucous membranes of the inside of the cheek pouches, which can lead to abscesses of the cheek pouches.

What is the best way to clean the wooden house?

A wooden house can be cleaned in a simple way, depending on the use of the animals. The animals can use the house as shelters, in that case it will remain quite clean, but the animals can also use the house as food storage or as a sleeping house and if you are really unlucky also as a toilet , but luckily that does not happen that way often. If the animals do leave a puddle, which often happens with Muisjes, we recommend a urine spray . This breaks down the urine of the animals and in this way cleans the wood.

Can this house be placed on the bedding with small rodents?

Yes, this can certainly be placed on the ground cover ! Het Huisje is a very light house with an open bottom, so there is no danger of being undercut.

Can the nails wear out thanks to the cooling stone?

Yes, you can, because of the bottom of the cooling stone. The granite stone has a fairly rough underside. In the winter the rodents do not need cooling, turn the stone over in the winter and let the animals walk over it so that the nails can wear out.

Can the cooling stone be kept in the fridge or in the freezer?

Although the stones can often be stored in the refrigerator, this is not the case with the freezer. If there is too great a temperature difference, the cooling stone can crack. We therefore advise against placing the stone in the refrigerator. The stone cools down automatically as soon as the animals leave it for a while.

How should the stone be cleaned?

The stone can easily be removed with soapy water and water.
