new hamster and new user :)
i have wanted a pet for a while now but my girlfriend and my mom are both allergic to large amounts of fur
i thought about getting a budgie for a while or a lizzard but changed my mind last week.
i went to the local petshop and was looking around and saw a bunch of baby syrian hamsters, looking closer at them i fell in love with them
i then decided to buy one of the hamsters that day with everything else i needed
i spoke to the lady and picked a 3 week old girl
i have a few questions though
once i had her home and set up in the cage, watching her i noticed she has a limp paw(she wont put much pressure on it) she runs in her wheel but slips sometimes and holds it close to her chest. does anyone know why this could be? birth defect, or fall or something?
next question is, what sort of toys could i make for her so she can have more activities to play with etc
she has her wheel, a ball, and some toilet roll tubes to play with.
next question, i have seen a few pictures on google and on here of like a mesh fence which you place on the floor as a guard so the hamster can be placed in there and not escape. does anyone know where i could buy these from?
any help is much appreciated
