Let’s talk about hamsters today.
And how to make sure they get the best care.
Cute and cuddly
They are nocturnal too (like me), which means that they’re awake during the night, when you are all asleep! That’s another thing a hamster owner needs to think about.
Wild hamsters live in warm, dry places (sometimes in deserts) and they love digging so it’s important that pet hammies have similar surroundings.
- The word ‘hamster’ comes from the German word hamstern, which means ‘to hoard’. Hamsters hoard their food in special pouches in their cheeks for later!
- Their teeth NEVER stop growing. That’s why it’s so important to make sure pet hamsters have lots of things to gnaw on, like wood.
- Hamsters can catch colds – that means you can pass them to your pet and he/she can pass them to you! Yikes, little hamster sneezes! 🙁
