HELP!!! What in the World do you do with a Hamster?
Okay, My thing is... mice. I know TONS of stuff about mice. Mice, I can deal with. Mice, my Husband can deal with.
We just lost one of our mice. It was very sad.
My youngest daughter (she's 6) just made Honor Roll for the first time. It's a big thing. I mean, we weren't sure if she was going to pass to 1st grade...and now finally, 3rd six weeks she got Honor Roll! That is HUGE!
**And to celebrate her grandma bought her a new Hamster.**
I don't know a cotton-picking thing about hamsters. The only hamster interaction I've ever had was with a friend's son's hamster, Mr. Piddles. Mr. Piddles is a BIG BOY who will bite you in a second if you aren't watching. I don't want a Mr. Piddles.
Luckily we have an extra cage that Cameron (the new hamster) can go into. In fact, I've got it set up already and she's made herself quite at home.
*Cage - check.
*"house" - check.
*Food - check - they bought some the same time the adopted Cameron (which is the one cool thing - they adopted one instead of buying one of the ones for sale.)
*"chew toy" - check...I mean that can't be that much different than mice....they gotta chew, right?
That is where the extent of my knowing about hamsters totally ceases. I don't even know what kind of hamster she is. She has beautiful, somewhat wavy, Long ehhhhh....kinda blonde hair, but it looks like it has dark "roots", a mostly white underbelly and red eyes.
She's quite adorable.
The guy at the pet store, (I went back to buy more bedding...I'd just run out) was new; I'd never seen him before. As a result I don't really trust him that much.
Have no idea how old she is.
Have no idea of breed
Have no idea of the proper diet, treats, fruits or veggies????
How big will she get?
I know NOTHING!
Will someone, Please, Please, Please help me?
Many thanks in advance,
