Cold store Granite Cico for rodents!

cool for rodents during hot days The Granite Cico Cooling House 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 down on the roof and cool off. In winter the stone can be turned over and help the nails to wear down. 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 cave when it is hot - you can imitate this effect with the granite roof. In summer, the granite cooling stone offers pleasant cooling.

❤ TIP ❤ Moss works like a sponge. Saturated with water, it retains the refreshing liquid for hours, releases 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: 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 design that is tailored to the natural needs of the animals. As in the wild, a multi-room house* gives the animals access to several rooms. One of these needs is the ability to take shelter. Small rodents are prey animals that like to flee and hide. They do this not only when something scares them, but in general they also like to have several hiding places.

❤ TIP ❤
We always think it is very nice to place a piece of dried moss on the roof or plateau, which gives a very beautiful natural look to the house and fits perfectly in a
natural design!

Why a multi-room house* for small rodents?

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

For group animals (mouse), the multi-room houses have an additional advantage: they can avoid each other in the event of a disagreement or argument. Although group animals like to be together, disagreements can occasionally occur, causing the animals to find each other's presence less pleasant. 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 to see if there are any older food supplies that need to be thrown away, fresh vegetables in particular 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 entire 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 a small food or water bowl, for example, but it is also a nice place to put down a snack, for example.

Which 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 larger 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, that is certainly possible! For group animals (mouse) we always recommend placing at least one large house in the enclosure where all animals can fit together. Group animals like to be together and often also want to hide and sleep together. By offering the animals at least one large house like this, we meet this important natural need.

Are the openings large enough for the cheek pouches?

The smaller house has an opening with a diameter of approximately 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/Golden Hamster) to fit through the opening with full cheek pouches. to walk. The larger house has an opening with a diameter of approximately 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/Golden 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 cannot enter the house with full cheek pouches or the hamster will have to squeeze through. The hammered 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 a shelter, in which case it will remain fairly clean, but the animals can also use the house as a food supply storage or as a sleeping house and if you are really unlucky also as a toilet , but fortunately that does not happen that way. often. If the animals do leave a puddle, which often happens with mice, we recommend a urine spray . This breaks down the urine of the animals and thus cleans the wood.

Can this house be placed on the ground cover for small rodents?

Yes, this can certainly be placed on the ground cover ! The House is a very light house with an open bottom, so there is no risk of undercutting.

Can the nails wear out thanks to the cooling stone?

Yes, that is possible, through the bottom of the cooling stone. The granite stone has a fairly rough bottom. In winter, the rodents do not need cooling. Turn the stone over in winter and let the animals walk over it so that the nails can wear down.

Can the cooling stone be placed in the refrigerator or freezer?

Although the stones can often be stored in the refrigerator, this is not the case with the freezer. If too great a temperature difference occurs, the cooling stone may 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 wiped off with soapy water and water.
