You know, I didn't know it was necessary to handle a Syrian hamster...I thought they were solitary animals?

They like to be without other hamsters. But they're actually one of the tamest hamsters ever. Just with humans, no hamsters.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I know but I figured since they dont need other hamsters then they dont really care if a person holds them or not...

I guess with any and every pet it's a requirement to check their environment and make sure it's safe and comfortable every day...

Sorry for all the consecutive posts -_-

Lol thank you :)

SO daily:

-Change water
-Feed
-Check on hamster itself
-Check on environment (Make sure wheel is working, water bottle is working, Nothing is flipped over, no sharp edges, chew toys intact, etc.)

Here is what I do for my hamsters.

*Check food dish/water bottle for fullness.

I make sure check their food dish to make sure that its not empty. If it is, l add more food, if not, I move on. I also check their water bottle to make sure its not empty. If its close to empty, or is empty, I fill it. I also make sure the bottle works and that the hamster is getting enough water from it.

*Spot clean bathroom area

Hamsters are fastidious groomers and overall very clean animals. As such, they usually designate one corner of their cage as the "bathroom" area. I just scoop it up and toss it.

*Visual and Physical Check of Hamster's Health

I usually give my hamsters a visual check first, and if something looks off, I pick them up and look at whatever it is more closely. This proves difficult with the roborovskis so I just scoop them up in an empty peanut butter jar and do a visual check.

*Environment Check

I make sure to check their environment to make sure its all in order. If something is looking a little too worn, soggy, smelly, and can't be cleaned or fixed, I take it out and pitch it.

*Treats!!

I also make sure to give my hamsters a yummy treat on a daily basis. Whether it be a peanut or whatnot. This helps them to associate me with a positive reward and therefor reinforces their hand taming.
