There are two types of hamsters.There's the Syrian hamster and the Dwarf hamster.Syrian hamsters are the big hamsters.Dwarf's are slightly smaller.However I'll get into the details a bit later.
As with all pets, you need to take care of them a bit.Hamsters clean themselves but you need to clean their cages at least once a week.Depending on what type of cage you bought,the difficulty of cleaning it can vary.
Hamsters like to burrow so you need to buy bedding.Hamsters are allergic to cedar and in some cases cotton.If you're thinking about buying the cotton candy like bedding then don't.Hamsters can choke on it.Aspen bedding is probaly the best.
Food wise, there is specially made food for hamsters.Most of the hamster food consists of:dry corn,pumkin seeds,sunflower seeds and ect.Hamsters can also eat fresh foods as well.They can eat fruits like:apples,bananas,strawberries,blueberries and watermelon.The only fruits they can't eat are citrus fruits like oranges and kiwi.They can also eat vegatables like:carrots,corn,kale,cabbage,and peas.Also they can eat cooked meat like:fish,chicken,and eggs.
Hamsters Have Personalities
Hamsters are just like people.They have personalities.They are smart and they know what people are saying.So please treat your hamster with respect,and like how you would want to be treated.Treat them like little prince and princesses.
