What should I do if I buy a female that’s pregnant?
If you find out the female you bought is pregnant, you should go and join one of the hamster forums if you haven’t already, Hamsterhideout.com or Hamstercentral.com. Both of these forums could advise you on what steps to take to care for your female and to give her the best start in life. They can help you through day-by-day problems you have.
Will my hamster be OK if I leave it alone in the day?
Owners who are still in school may have this problem. What is your hamster going to do when you are not home to entertain it? Actually, it is pretty much going to sleep. They wake up around dawn or nighttime. And they tend to be much less active in the day. Somehow hamsters sleep throughout the entire day. So you don’t have to worry about entertaining your hamster in the daytime.
What do I do with my hamster when I go on holiday?
This question really depends on where you go on holiday and how long you are going away for. If you are going away for a couple of weeks, then definitely get a pet sitter or a trusted family member to look after your pet. If you are going away for a couple of months, you can take your hamster in a travel cage.
Does a hamster need regular check-up?
Lots of people ask if they need to take their hamsters for a regular check-up. You don’ have to do that like you do with cats and dogs. You don’t need to get your hamster vaccinated because there is no hamster vaccination out there.
So these are the common questions from new hamster owners. I really hope these answers can help you out.
