Caring for Hamsters

When you take your hamster home, it is important to provide it with a secure cage, soft bedding, (usually sawdust) a water supply, and opportunities for exercise. The best way to provide exercise is to have a wheel attached to the side of the cage where the hamster can run. If you are lucky enough to have room to have your hamster out of the cage, you can also purchase a running ball. This is a ball, which you put your hamster inside so they can run around without worrying they will get lost.

Your hamster will also need feeding daily. Specially designed hamster food is available from most pet stores and supermarkets.
