Hamsters  - Lovely funny little animals, children's favorites. It is extremely exciting to watch these rodents. However, a hamster is not a furry toy, but a living being, therefore it requires care and careful care.

In general, there are several different types of hamsters that can be kept at home. The most common are the Syrian, Dzungarian, Campbell hamsters, Roborovsky's hamsters. Each of these species has its own characteristics of nature, habits, but there are several general rules for caring for hamsters.

Almost all hamsters is solitary animals. They get on very badly with each other. Unisex hamsters will often fight, and gay men - very often multiply, which can lead to early aging and death of the female.

Cage for Your hamster should be comfortable and spacious. Zoologists recommend to choose the cell for the considered types of hamsters size not less than 50х30 cm. The cages of the cage should be placed horizontally so that your rodent can climb the cage.

In a cage for a hamster must be. drinker, separate bowls for dry and fresh feed, snack stone (mineral or chalk, for grinding the teeth of a rodent), toilet. A hamster is an active pet and loves to run. Therefore, in his cage be sure to put running wheel. preferably with a solid surface, otherwise your pet can break the foot. The larger the diameter of such a wheel - the better.

A filler for a hamster cage can serve sawdust. swipe or toilet paper without dyes, special extruded or granulated filler. In any case, as a filler for cells you can't use WOOL. even special for hamsters. In the cotton wool fibers, the hamster's foot may become entangled and this will lead to a disturbance of the blood circulation of the paw or even to the death of the hamster.

The cage with Your pet place away from drafts. heaters, protect from direct sunlight. The cell should be placed in a place inaccessible to other pets or small children. In addition, it is better not to put a cage with hamsters near objects that it can drag into its cage and gnaw.

Hamsters do not like change. Therefore, it is not recommended to move the cage from place to place in Your home. Every seat in the house has its own smell, which is very sensitive hamsters. If the smell is unfamiliar, the hamster is very nervous. Also hamsters don't respond and change their cage. Therefore, the total cleaning of the cage, which recommended approximately every 1-2 weeks. Do not disturb the location of objects in the cage. This is especially true of the so-called pantry, the place in the cage where the hamster deposits its reserves. Therefore, experts recommend to remove from the pantry only those products that have deteriorated.

When cleaning the cage should be transplanted hamster in some other place, for example, in a jar (more). To remove the litter and wash the tray cells with a solution of salt or baking soda with the sand. You can also use special shampoo  for washing rodent cells. The toilet corner in the cage should be cleaned daily, drinking bowl - once a week. After cleaning, be sure to put some sawdust or napkins from the old bedding back into the cage. This will help the hamster quickly adapt to the washed cage.

Hamster, you cannot bathe! After bathing in the water it can get cold and die. Better to clean the animal's coat are special bathing.

Bear hamster for a stroll on the street is not recommended. Many unfamiliar smells, street noise and bustle, cat or dog – all can scare Your pet and he will flee. To find it because it will be almost impossible. For walking it is better to organize Your hamster a spacious corral  in your house. The walls of such a paddock must be high enough that the hamster does not climb over them and does not run away. A hamster lost in the house can harm itself (injure, poison) or your furniture!

Hamster the best way to feed ready dry grain mixtures. grain sticks, herbal granules, special biscuits or crackers for hamsters. The hamster will also gladly eat vegetables, fruits (but not citrus and exotic), fresh herbs.

With proper care your pet will be healthy, active and friendly!

Speech in this case is about beriberi. What substance is not enough in the body, it has not been precisely clarified. It is recommended to freeze the green food in the summer in order to feed them animals in winter to prevent vitamin deficiency.

If the hamster is ill deny, that in this place he has a bad skin, with crusty and scaly, and hairless hamster it is smooth and clean.
To treat any of these diseases there are ointments which advise the vet when you turn to him for help.

Hamster is an active animal and very fond of running. Therefore, in his cage, be sure to put a running wheel, preferably with a solid surface, otherwise your pet can break the foot.

and how to distinguish a boy this or a girl when they are still small))

It is very difficult for the young to determine the sex. But in general, to determine the sex of the hamster, it must be taken by the palm of the back and gently turned upside down by the belly. Below the abdomen, the hamster will have two holes - the anal and the urethra. At the female they are located side by side, almost closely, and at the male - at some distance. In addition, males tend to behave more calmly than females.

And if two Syriac hamsters live in one cage, will they get along?

tell me, why should I take care of the Angora hamster's wool?

It is necessary to comb the hair as necessary with a comb with long, pointed teeth or a brush with long curved teeth. A hamster should have a small sandbox in which it can clean the coat. Sand before use must be sifted, calcined in an oven and cooled. Sand is suitable for chinchillas, available for sale.

My hamster is of course super. Girl. But the last time between her legs is some kind of white mucus and it stinks. I rub it and give a special food that I was advised. But does not help!

Sevodnya cupl hamster I Evo called Homa into need to give him is for the first time

Hello! People tell me how to determine the breed hamsters? Today on the occasion appeared in six of us. How to determine their age, gender? And who can say how many years live these cute little animals?

I really want a small(in size) and not very energetic hamster. What better to choose? Thanks in advance=)

I want to have Syrian hamster, but they say that they are a strong smell. Is this true and, if so, how to get rid of it? Thanks in advance. )

Normally, the hamster should not have a strong smell. If it is, then either the host uses the wrong filler for the cell or rarely changes it, or the hamster is sick or nervous. A healthy hamster in a clean cage will not smell unpleasant.

You know, such a good homa. I called him a merlin. He very well adapted to human life. he fell off the cabinet and there was nothing - I was taking care and leading to the vet. He said that there was nothing. I was pleased. If you bathed it in water then, after bathing, put in a bath of sand and leave for a day (the sand should be hot but not to the limit). The veterinarian said that there will not be any such thing. Vsetki strong homa.

Maybe she's just too young to give birth, + previous unsuccessful births weakened the body. Often a hamster eats offspring because he can not feed him because of his own weakness.

i want to buy a hamster pasavetaite what

our hamsters sleep during the day, and at night they start moving. why?

Hamsters lead a twilight or nocturnal lifestyle, so in the daytime they sleep, and in the evening and at night begin to show activity, this is natural for them.

Good afternoon. Tell me please. At night it is not clear what the hamster died from. He was standing on the balcony. All summer he stood in the kitchen. And on Saturday I took it to the balcony. In the afternoon he slept and drank ate. Then the windows were closed on the balcony and there was no one before the vecher. And on Monday morning I took a cage to carry it to the kitchen. And he does not move and his eyes do not twitch at all. He seemed to have turned to stone. I took it in his hands, his cold paws and back and as if he began to podkamemenivat. And his stomach was warm. I again put it in the cage.

Perhaps sunstroke, if the cell is in the balcony stood in direct sunlight.

Hello! I was bought a hamster a month and a half ago. But since then he is afraid when someone approaches him. He shouts a lot and falls on his back or hides under the wheel. On my hands, I did not try to take it, and when I need to wash the cage, he climbs into the jar :) Can you tell me what to do please. I really want to make friends with him :)

Help me. My hamster does not drink milk. And only he eats. Is it dangerous? Help me please.

I quote Vanya Koselko:

Help me. My hamster does not drink milk. And only he eats. Is it dangerous? Help me please.

If his diet contains vegetables, fruits and herbs, it is possible that he receives water with them and does not want to drink.

Nastya, if hamsters live in the same cage, then quickly try to buy some. Hamsters are used to being alone and if they are put together, even babies, then they can hurt each other

My hamster has a wheel in the cage, but does not run in it. Why?

1. He runs when you don't see it (hamsters are usually active in the evening and not during the day).
2. The wheel is too small or large – in General, uncomfortable.
3. He does not want to 🙂

My hamsters run around with me and with people they do not know. Most often in the evening or closer to the night

Please advise which house is better to put. I really want a hamster and I do not know which house I should buy. Straw something like a nest or a wooden house? Thank you in advance:)

Anya, put the house in plastic. In one cage in the first hamster, there is a staircase and half the cage is the second floor and there is a plastic house attached. And in another cage, a ladder is attached to the house, it is necessary to put everything above everything. My hamsters run around with pleasure.

i want to have a hamster, but I have other animals (2cats and a dog) and I'm afraid that cats will start hunting after him, what can I do to avoid this?

Yesterday gave homco (Syrian, female). Today in the afternoon. hung in a cage wheel. So it is from him and not go - only an hour of sleep
(for some reason on the roof of the house), and the rest of the time is worn like a madman in a cage, all sniffs, drags bowls, climbs on the bars of the climbing frame. the wheel runs incessantly.
This not normal. Hamsters should sleep in the morning and in the morning, but this one is having fun. What should I do? Need to somehow calm her down?

I Quote The Country Of The Soviets:

Tell me how many times a day or week to feed the hamster or while the plate is not apostalic and be sure they need the toilet?

Toilet corner the hamster will determine for himself. Dry food should always be at least one tablespoon in the trough. Rich food and protein foods are given to the extent that a hamster eats in the night.

Good luck.

I quote the jubilee of Yaroslav:

Do not worry hamsters night animals, and the fact that your Homka all the time sleeps nothing. But when the night comes your hamster begins life.
