Other than enjoying design and craft, I love animals. I have been the proud owner of many pets through my childhood, from rodents to exotic animals. Since moving into Newcastle as a student my pet collection has decreased, but I still manage to keep my corn snake Kairo. A few days ago my long haired Syrian hamster Obi passed away. I thought I might share the cage that I built for him, designed to give him a more natural way of living. It was inspired by the ‘German’ hamster cages, and it’s just under 1m long! R.I.P my little man.
