    My poor Ollie is two years old. That's pretty old for a hamster is t it? Well yesterday I picked her up to play with her and she had a huge lump on her throat! I suspect it to be a tumor. My parent won't spend money to take her to a vet because they suspect she is going to die soon any way. The...

    Here's a question: I found a flea but it jumped before I could kill it. My floors are mostly tile and laminate, carpets in the two bedrooms only. There's two hamsters on a counter up high and only me at home. Will the flea be able to survive and multiply? Will it be able to get up to the...

    We recently got two baby hamsters as i missed having them since my other two passed away and someone was selling babies for 5 dollars each. She said they were 3 weeks old and they are super tiny. Is it normal for someone to let the babies go at 3 weeks old.

    Hello! I, like the rest of you, am an animal lover. During my younger years I was consistantly finding some sort of temperary pet (frog and toad tadpoles being a big one) to play with. I started out growing up with four cats and a dog. The only pet left from that group is my cat Sydney (who is...

    I know a lot of people were making Bin cages for awhile, but i was wondering if anyone has experimented with any homemade tubes? or ways of connecting 2 or more cages. i was thinking maybe if you could find the right size of that ribbed plastic hose stuff they use like for pool filters and...

    Hey! OK, I wanted to clear up a few things before I pick a new breeding pair. I know that you can't breed two mottled red-eyed hamsters, but can you breed: 1. A mottled red-eye to a mottled black-eye? or: 2. A mottled black-eye to a mottled black-eye? or: 3. A solid red-eye to a mottled...

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, so a moderator or admin can move this to the correct place if this post is in the wrong area. We went to the pet store today. Yes, they do carry animals. But we went there to pick up food for my rabbit and guinea pig because they're running...

    Hi all, I'm living in Toronto. I am looking for white dwarf hamsters. However, in the past week I couldn't find one from all the pet stores around my area. In fact, before I moved to Canada, I had pure white dwarf hamsters which were pretty common in my old country. I loved my old pets very much...

    Now I'm not new to rodent care, i had pet mice for a long time, and I babysat my friends hamsters when I was younger, but baby hamsters? Thats a whole other ballgame. My brothers and I guessed that they're about 16-28 days old, something around that. I'm attaching a picture i took of them, and...
