If you have a pet hamster, you already know how much joy these darling tiny creatures can bring into your life. As small as they are, hamsters still have quite big personalities and are just as much a treasured pet as dogs and cats are. It is very important that you make sure your hamster is well cared for, from his living environment to his food to his hamster treats. If you take care to keep your hamster’s living environment and food supply clean and healthy, your little pet can be with you for as long as possible!
Your hamster’s cage is important because this is the home where your pet will be spending the bulk of his time. A functional cage that is plenty big enough and has food, water, and hamster treats easily accessible is much more important than just choosing a really unusual looking cage that your pet will not be able to navigate around very well.
Also consider that the cage needs to be fairly simple in terms of cleaning. You will be cleaning the cage out on a regular basis, so this should be as trouble free as you can make it for both you and for your pet.
There are plenty of cage accessories like beds, exercise wheels, or even tiny caves called “sleep huts” that your hamster may love, and these things can really make the cage as home like as possible for your pet.
The food that you feed your hamster should be composed of a healthy variety of seeds, nuts, grain, and pellets. This is the most similar diet possible to what a hamster eats in the wild, and this is a good basis for the diet.
When it comes to hamster treats, the sky is the limit!
Hamsters love to eat hamster treats of all kinds, from the special treats that you can buy in your local pet store or online to the foods you already have in your own kitchen at home. While hamsters are likely to love the pre-packaged treats the best, you can still give your pet little treats like pieces of carrot, broccoli, pears, bananas, strawberries, or blueberries as explained on Petsium.com.
