She 'loves it' and rolls around the house for hours. I am intrigued as to what behaviour you are interpreting as 'loving it'. The fact that she rolls it around for hours ? Because to me, a T that walks, or runs for hours on end is desperately trying to escape, and is not in any way 'loving it'...I actually bought a small hamster ball for my big Rosehair, Twiggy.
She loves it, and rolls all around the house for hours.
Of course I kick the cat out when it's Twiggys time to play.
Happy T's want to sit still IME, not to be unnecessarily transferred into a bizarre, completely unnatural and unfamiliar plastic ball for little more than the amusement of its owner. I imagine that after hours of trying to get out of the sphere, the tarantula is, at very least, exhausted...
