What your little pet needs to have fun
Pets are a huge responsibility. And that’s because once you do bring home pets, you have to keep them happy. Yes, even the small ones like hamsters or guinea pigs. They have to be held and loved a lot for them to feel happy and comfortable. They have to be fed right, their bedding has to be perfect and their exercise and fun time has to be organized. Read on to see how you can do this.
Even if hamsters and guinea pigs are small, they need their space. Get the right-sized guinea pig cages or hamster cages so they don’t feel cramped. Ware Living Room Series guinea pig cage is made with quality steel, it has a fully opening top for easy maintenance. It has a spring locked front door to let your pet in and out and locks securely.
Have fun with your hamster. The Van Ness Hamster exercise ball for small animals rolls free across the floor. The hamster ball comes in lovely assorted colors, is break-resistant and well-ventilated and makes for a lovely, entertaining toy for your hamster. But remember; don’t let your hamster play for too long without rest as it can be very exhausting. About 20 minutes of rolling around is enough fun time for one session.
Even everyday things like a toilet paper roll affords hours of fun for hamsters. They love chewing on it and squeezing through it. Pet shops also have wood sticks in different colors that hamsters love to chew on and helps keep their teeth at a comfortable length.
Setting up different levels in a cage allows hamsters to explore and enjoy all the areas thoroughly. You can make a maze inside the cage and put out your pet’s favorite food so he can find it.
Exercise wheels in the cage are a great source of fun for your hamster. They love to go fast on the wheel. It’s best to go with a solid wheel and not the one with the wire rungs as they can trip and fall between the rungs and injure themselves.
Let your hamster out of the cage and let him play around on the floor. But keep him inside a barrier so he doesn’t get lost or run away or get into hard-to-reach places.
