How to pick up a hamster for the first time

It is a little difficult at first i know, but first, you have to be mentally prepared and must not be afraid. You are going to experience a tickling sensation on your palm.

So first, invite her out, using treats and food. Let her get on to your palm slowly. then stroke her, and let her know everything is okay, as holding it for the first time, the hamster will be in fear too, so remember your treats.

hamster just love treats.

Good luck :)

hey, i used to have a hamster and it died years ago. But i still have lots of the wood dust so i kept it. Now, I'm going to adopt a hamster again and I;m using the old wood dust. I put the wood dust under the sun to kill the bacteria. Is it still safe to use the old wood dust? I kept it in the store for about more than 5 years.

Hello dear,

well, my advice would be better not. The chances of termite eggs could be possible.. Bacteria is okay for hamsters, still can treat,


but insect bites might be fatal as well. Also, there will be chances of the wood unable to be bacteria free even under the sun.

well,if u wanna save some money on the bedding then i suggest maybe you could use unwanted office paper..still safer for the hamster ;D

but if u really wanna use the bedding, use it,but with EXTRA caution.. once the hamster is being weird then please hnage to a newer one:)


Good luck :)

If you use paper, try not to use printed ones as there would be ink and hamster would consume it. It would be better if you use toliet paper, it is soft and my hamsters love it. Remember to tear it into small pieces before giving it to hamsters.
