A month ago I decided instead of using the 25gal I got online for a fish tank (at least right now) I decided to get a hamster. I had a few hamsters/gerbils when I was a child so I already knew the care guidelines as well. But if anyone has any suggestion about hamster care/feeding I'd be happy to hear :).
He's been doing well and steadily gaining weight. I feed him his seeds every day + usually some form of vegetable, although he's not a big fan of cucumber...he likes green beans, carrots, sweet potato, and just recently he stopped liking avocado (no idea why).
He's very friendly and sociable, at bit nervous at first but I handled him at least once a day so he's very used to me now, I can hand feed him and usually have him on my lap for a bit while I answer emails or watch tv. I even took him outside yesterday which I think he enjoyed until he heard some birds...

I wish I could find a site similar to this one for hamster care, but I've been struggling to find a good one. The community here is great and very informative, especially when I first started fish keeping...please let me know if anyone knows of any links.
