My hamster got a new cage a couple of weeks ago, and for the first 2 days, she would avoid the tubes, then she mustered enough courage that now she goes up and down and she wont stop

but it depends how bright her cage is, i always put my cage in the dark, and she is fine once i take her out in the light.

I once had a hamster who did that too, although I had aspen chips in her cage, so they didn't get stuck. Your hamster may just not like the feel of the bedding.

hmm i dunno..its the same bedding that was used at the petco that she has at for three weeks before i got her. its just the plain white carefresh..because i seem to be allergic to any other types. dust is a no no for my allergies

some hamsters like bedding and others might not like it. That is pretty weird
