    Hamsters for sale are theideal pet for children and young people as they are small, easy to care for andcheap to keep. With the right hamster care and attention, these pets can livefor up to 5 years. See the following guide if you are considering hamsters forsale.

     

     

     

     

     

    • First, you will need all your hamster supplies ready and in place for the arrival of your new pet. Hamster cages should be placed away from drafts and direct sunlight.

     

    • The floor of hamster cages should be covered with a layer of bedding such as sawdust. This is absorbent and non-toxic.

     

    • For the best hamster care you must provide fresh and clean water. A bottle should be added to your hamster supplies which fits on the cage walls so that your pet can reach the nib.

     

    • Other hamster supplies include chew toys. These can be simple enough to provide by using toilet rolls (without the tissue).

     

    • In terms of food, commercially produced hamster food can be given, as well as fresh fruit and veg.

     

    • Place an exercise wheel in hamster cages so that your pet can stay active while you are away. Also let him run around outside the cage. You could use a hamster ball for this.

     

    • Hamster cages should be cleaned once a week. Disinfect the cage and replace the bedding before putting him back inside.
