Little Dreamie came into our care after he was found as a stray. He is a sweet little boy who appears to have been quiet well handled in the past, but would still like to find a home that can continue socialising him.
Size requirements: Hamsters need a minimum required space of 2ft 6 ins x 1ft 4 ins x 1ft 4 ins (3.12 sq ft) and a sleeping area of 6 ins x 7 ins (0.31 sq ft).
Diet: There are commercial complete foods available for hamsters. This is adequate and provides them with all required nutrients. There are plenty of treats which can be brought but must be fed responsibly to avoid obesity. There are certain fresh foods you can give but there are many which cannot be given. For a list of appropriate foods please ask a member of staff.
Company: Hamsters are very territorial and would fight till the death with another. It is advised to not keep them together.
Enrichment: Hamsters are the same as all small animals need plenty of exercise and things to keep them occupied. Regularly changing the environment helps to decrease boredom. Tubes, branches and cardboard boxes are good for chewing. Messing the beds daily will ensure the hamster has something to do. Platforms and facilities to climb are essential as they like to move around.
