Tiny came into our care as her owners could sadly no longer keep her. She is a pretty girl but she has not been used to being handled very much so she is very scared and would benefit from a patient home that could spend lots of time continuing her socialising. Do you have space in your home for a new tiny friend?

Diet: There are commercial complete foods available for hamsters. This is adequate and provides them with all required nutrients.

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.
