Hamsters are cute little animals. Proper care and breeding of a hamster does not take a lot of time or effort and is inexpensive. Here are the most important features of caring for your small pet and the necessary conditions to keep it happy and healthy.

Choosing a pet

Hamsters are very small animals, so a small cage may seem sufficient. However, this is not the case. They like to have plenty of space around them, so choose a large enough cage. They are also very energetic animals that like to run around, so give your hamster a spinning treadmill and other climbing equipment. Metal cages will be the most suitable as they are airy and good looking.


First of all, what not to do. Do not use pine or cedar wood chips, which contain oils that give off fumes toxic to hamsters. Cotton is also not recommended, as a hamster’s small paws can easily get tangled in it. Other woodsThe chips used to cover the bottom of the cage can be used. For example, chips from aspen or other hardwoods would be suitable. Whatever wood you use, it is important to replace the wood chips in the cage every week. However, the best choice of bedding is odourless paper, such as paper towels. Simply tear a piece of paper towel and add it to the hamster’s cage. Your pet will tear itself into even smaller pieces. Use enough paper to allow your hamster to sleep freely, to burrow and to hide among the scraps of paper.

Hamster hygiene

Hamsters like to wash frequently because they have strong olfactory glands. These glands play an important role in hamster behaviour and communication. This allows them to feel clean and not smell bad odours. You don’t need to wash your hamster, but you do need to pay attention to how often it washes. If you notice that your pet is not showering at all, this could be a sign of illness and you shouldgo to the vet.


Hamster food, sold in pellets in pet shops, will ensure that your pet gets enough nutrients. Hamsters do not need a wide variety of foods, but fruit and vegetables are an excellent addition to their diet. Hamster favourites are apples (be sure to remove the seeds!), peaches, carrots, dandelion leaves, and even unsalted corn. It is advisable to feed your hamster occasionally from your own hand to develop a closer bond with your furry pet. It is also very important that there is always enough water in the cage.


Hamsters love attention and play. Playing with your pet regularly will make it feel content and loved. A hamster that lacks attention will feel nervous and afraid of touch. The hamster will enjoy climbing all over your body and will develop a sense of trust.
