PLEASE REBLOG THIS POST TO HELP OUT HAMSTERS !!! please please please
Seeing how so many people stuff their hamster in small cages is so depressing :(
These type of hamsters are never to be kept in pairs EVER:
Syrian hamster or better known as goldhamster.
These can be kept with 2 at a time, of the same gender !!! And only if they have known each other for a while:
Roborovski or Robo. AKA fast motherfuckers.
These can be kept with +- 5 IF THEY ARE FROM A PURE BREED:
DO NOT EVER GIVE YOU HAMSTER THESE !!! EVER !!!! If you want bedding for your hamster give them toilet paper.
THESE WHEELS ARE DANGEROUS !!!
These are NOT good cages !!!:
A syrian (gold) hamster needs a cage that is at least 80 centimeters long and 50 cm width. Their running wheel must be 30 centimeters in diameter.
A dwarf hamster (russian and roborovski) need at least 50 centimeters long and 30 centimeters width cage.
Please, you have no idea how many hamsters are suffering in horrible cages. Also, nice cages make the hamster happy and you will be able to tame them so much easier.
Here are a few examples of good cages for syrian hamster:
The Ferplast Mary. A favorite among hamster owners.
The Alaska cage. Cheap and perfect.
Hamster Heaven 80. Cute as hell. And the 30 cm wheel fits perfectly.
GOOD CAGES FOR DWARFHAMSTERS:
The good old Duna:
The Duna Fun:
An old terarrium:
Also, hamsters LOVE sand baths. And they are pretty funny rolling around in the sand. + makes the fur look fabulous.
