Looking after your hamster
Featured in the September 2016 handbook.
* Hamsters live for around two or three years.
* Keep Syrian hamsters alone as adults will fight
* Dwarf hamsters can be kept in female-only pairs or groups
* Hamsters enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables, but like to bury their food.
* Give them tiny portions to minimise the amounts and remove uneaten food daily.
* Clean out the hamster house every week to maintain a healthy environment
