You and Your Hamster

How Much Food?

I would suggest that you buy you hamster pellet food. So that anything else you give him/her will be a treat.

Treats

I would only give your hamster treats every few days - for instance - every three days give him/her a few seeds or another kind of treat. 

Important tips you should know

  • Hamster loves to exercise. They are naturally energetic and will do a lot of running. So make sure you provide all necessary equipment such as hamster wheels or adequate size of running space for them to 
  • Hamsters are nocturnal creatures (active at night) so they need peace during the day to sleep. It is highly recommended to place the cage away from draughts and direct sunlight.
  • The cage floor should be covered with adequate layer of bedding. You can use the commercial wood shaving as they are absorbent and nontoxic.
  • Hamster also needs privacy during their resting time. Build them a simple small room for them to sleep. A small box will be a good idea.
