Taking Care of a Hamster

Taking care of a hamster can be tons of fun. Hamsters have funny personalities! Here are some things you should know about your pet hamster.Hamsters' are funny, little, cute, balls of fur. But be-careful, they will bite just like any other animal. Its' just instinct. So don't get mad at them and lose your temper.They can have a heart attack very easily.

Hamsters are nocturnal. So they do most of their activity at night . It's best to close your door that way you can get some sleep,instead of listening to the wheel all night long or listening to them biting the bars. They love to hide and go through tunnels and run on their wheels. Hamsters love attention.

You must play with your hamster at least once a day for 1 hour. If they start to get antsy put them back in their cage and play with them later.

Your pet hamster must go in an exercise ball. For at least 20 minutes a day. You can buy one at a any pet shop. Make sure you get the right size for your hamster.

Hamsters must have their cage cleaned once a week. You will need to put fresh bedding and hamster food in their cage. Never let them go with out water , they exercise a lot. Always check that their food hasn't spilled. Accidents happen. You should put toys in their cage that way they don't get bored while your gone. These are some toys you should have in their cage to keep them occupied :

  1. tunnels

  2. wheels

  3. ladders

  4. balls

  5. rope for them to climb

  6. slides

You must make sure that their bedding stays dry otherwise this might cause milldew or bacteria. Take out any fruits or vegtables in their cage . They can get very sick if the food starts to rot. Put some chew sticks in the cage for your hamster. This helps their teeth from growing too long. Make sure that the food you get agrees with your hamster. They might get sick or have a bad stomach. If you've tried all the other foods you should go tell your vet very soon. If their cheek seems to be swolen and their eyes are watering that means they have something stuck in their cheek - pouch. Tell your vet as soon as possible. But before you call try to get them to drink some water this might help.

They can can get very stinking. To prevent this from happening just put them in a basen or in your bathtub. Which ever one you prefer. The water should be warm, check the water by putting your elbow in the tub. If the water is too hot put some more cold water in there. Let them swim for 5 minutes . This can be very tiring . Some hamsters can't swim that well , they might start to sink. This is very common. You can also put some kind of bath tub toy in there for them. They might play or take a brake on it when they get tired. Then dry your hamster gently , you can use a q-tip to dry their ears. You can also get your blow dryer out and put it on low. They love this.

Hamsters are tons of fun .But you can lose them quite easily.They are sneaky quick little things. If you lose your pet put the cage on the floor. They will probably be in there in the morning , asleep. If not , check behind your refridgerator usually they'll be there.

Well I hope ya learned something. If I forgot something tell me, please. Thanks : )

      Um.. I don't think it's very safe to put your hamster in a bathtub. If you do, make sure it's only up to your thumbnail , and the tub is very clean.

      I used to have 2 male dwarf hamsters (brothers) but after a while they had to get put into separate cages because they tried to kill each other lol. but then one ran away and we couldn't find it and the other one died of old age lol x

      i now have 2 bigger hamsters (one of them is the first long haired picture^^^)

      Oh um I just want to know somethings.

      1.if you put their cage on a small counter, will they be able to be strong enough to push it off the counter?

      2.Is it easy for them to open their cage doors because my mom would get super mad if I lost one of my hamsters.

      3.If I get a boy hamster and a girl hamster will the girl always turn out to be preganant? If she does then how long will it take for her to have her babies and wll I need a vet to help give the girl hamster birth to her babies?

      Sorry about all the questions I just want to be prepared and know everything before I buy my 2 hamsters.

      Care for your Hamster 7 years ago

      A hamster should never be washed, since hamsters keep themselves clean. If you bath a hamster, it would catch a cold and die.

      Hamsters produce their own natural oils to maintain the condition of their fur and will spend a long time grooming. So I would not recommend bathing a hamster since it will not enjoy it and bathing may make the hamster's fur look worse. If your hamster smells bad then you should clean the cage more frequently.

      Overall, this info was ok. Please NEVER give your hamster a bath, this gives them a fatal disease called wettail. Hamsters can not swim- NEVER try this ,they will drown and die. I am getting a Teddy Bear (syrian hamster)for Christmas, and I srongly advise you not to buy cedar or pine bedding! Thanks for the info!

      Please be careful with the bathtub, She said they might start to sink once they get tired, THAT'S NOT GOOD, if you turn your back even for a second they could easily die. There very fragile and if mistreated WILL bite, ive owned over 10 over the years, mine all lived to their old age. A sink would be a much safer and easier choice. ALSO make sure when you take them out you be careful with them and watch them at all times, and don't leave their cage door open while there in it and then you walk away! THEY WILL ESCAPE (talking from personal experience also expert advice). A hamster is a very cute and rewarding pet, but they can get a deadly disease easily such as wet tail which is caused by dirty habitat or a wet cage (cant spread to humans or other animals obviously , we don't have a tail :)). There not the type to come snuggle in your hand and if they do then that's very rare, A guinea pig however would be a better choice if your talking about a snuggly small animal and there much less quick to bite, (when hamsters bite they draw blood and it can be very painful). BUT guineas are harder to take care of. Just think before you buy, a lot of people get the misconception that there easy pets because there so small, but that's not true. As with any animal, much love and care is required. please be responsible!

      I have had many hamsters before. You have a lot of truthful and good information, but one thing is majorly WRONG. DO NOT GIVE HAMSTERS A BATH OR PUT THEM IN WATER.If you want to get them a bit clean, wipe them down with a damp cloth. Make sure it isn't to hot or to cold. The reason you should never give hamsters a bath is because they can clean themselves. They cannot swim, and will probably get VERY sick if you give them a bath!!!! Bye.

      Let your Hamster swim in the tub? that is the dumbest most dangerous thing you can do to a hamster. If you do wash a hamster use very little water I recommend a bowl and wet rag. Hamsters are not meant to be swimmers and they sniff when nervous and if they sink they could breath in water so DO NOT PUT YOUR HAMSTER IN DEEP WATER!

      well it depends , some hamsters can and some cant... but ive tried and only 1 out of both my hamsters can, but in my pet shop i found a hamster bath and sand that cleans them, so i would prefure that if your local pet shop has it

      can i just tell you that your information regarding bathing your hamster is wrong! you could cause many hamsters to die by telling people to bathe there hamster as they catch chills very easily...you obviously didn't even research it before or even consulted a vet because you should NEVER bathe your hamster and if you do its only because they have got something poisenes on there fur that would harm them if they cleaned it themselves. in fact hamsters are very clean creatures as they have special cleaning fluids in there spit so when they lick themselves it removed dirt. if your hamster is smelling its because you are not cleaning the cage enough.

      secondly another bit of your information that is wrong is that last bit about if they escape, in fact you SHOULD DEFINATLY NOT PUT YOUR CAGE OPEN ON THE FLOOR FOR THEM BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT BE THERE IN THE MORNING!!!! all that will happen is they will go to the cage in the night and take there bedding and food ect and then go back out into the room and use the bedding and food to keep themselves survivng out in the wild. you infact need to do this -http://www.hamstercentral.com/wiki/How_to_capture_...

      now please do not give incorrect advise with out researching because you could of easily lead to hamsters dying :s

      hamsters are very good pets for childern but they need to be age 8 and up to learn the real responsibility of taking care of hamsters. It was my birthday and I wanted a hamster I did get 1 she was a teddy bear her name was muffin and she died at 6 or 7 months old because I wasn't taking care of her properly I said I was ready but I wasn't now I'm getting another one and I know that I am ready cause I have learned the exprinces and I know I have to take responsibility.when I got muffin the lady at the pet store said that she bits I was really scared I wanted a nice hamster. but I have learned that the trick is just be paitent my cousin came to my house and just put her hand in the cage of course it was in the evening and cup her hand and all this time I have been scared. I also learned that wear gloves you never knew when your hamster might bite if this works then post a comment if not then just post a comment telling me it didn't work and I will give you another method I have lots
