Cage Setup And Maintenance

<h1>Hamster &nbsp;Cage Setup And Maintenance</h1>
<p> A hamster is a small, usually round, mammal. There are <strong>many different kinds</strong>, <em>called hamsters</em>. The ones you care for are <strong>called caged hamsters</strong>!</p>
<p>The caged hamster is the most common type. He or she is typically a brown or orange color with <em>white markings</em>. You can buy them in both pet and market stores.</p>
<p>Cage hampsters do not get to decide when the day starts and ends – their owners do that. They need to be cared for, provided with enrichment, and given exercise. It takes time to create an inherent bond with a cage hamer so this is an important part of his care.</p>
<p>This article will discuss how to set up and maintain your cage hamer. Setting up your hamster can be tricky if you do not know what supplies they need.</p><h2>How to set up a hamster cage</h2>

<p> When looking to set up a hamster cage, the first thing to do is to look at what kind of hamster you want.</p>
<p>Do you want a small hamster or one with a big cage? A normal sized hamster will need about 5–6 inches (12–20 cm) of space in its cage. If you have a large-sized hamster, it will need an <em>even larger cage</em>.</p>
<p>Another thing to consider is whether or not you want to keep your pet in a community setting, with other animals, or if you want more privacy. If your pet wants more private space, then buy an extension of the <em>existing housing layout</em> into a separate room or house.</p>
<p>If you are choosing how much space your pet has in the community setting, make sure there are enough supplies such as food and water available. Hamsters are very social creatures, so it is important to ensure they are being safe in such an environment.</p><h2>What to put on the floor of the cage</h2>

<p> There are a few things you should keep your hamster or other small hamster in. Each of these <strong>items cost money</strong> and should be replaced regularly to keep your hamster happy and healthy.</p>
<p>These things are: toys, playthings, enrichment materials, and shelter. Toys can be <em>things like plushies</em> or wheels. Playthings can be Hoopla discs or a hoofball. Enrichment materials can be cork chips or hay pellets.</p>
<p>Hay pellets are the most common of these, but you should make sure that it is fresh enough to your Hamster! Hoopla discs can <em>sometimes fall apart</em>, which is why they need some sort of <em>sturdy surface</em> to land on.</p><h2>What to put in the cage</h2>

<p> There are a few things you must put in your hamster’s cage. These things include: a place to eat, a place to sleep, and a place to play. Make sure to give him or her at least one of these four things every day!</p>

<p>While you should make sure your hamster has enough space, you should also give it enough calories. A healthy weight of hamsters is around 2–3 kg (4–6 lb). They <em>require around 1 kg</em> (2 lb) of food each day- this does not have to be cooked, just eaten!</p>
<p>You can buy kibble or pellets at a store for your cage. Make sure to keep an eye on its size to ensure it is getting enough food and shelter.</p><h2>Helpful hamster accessories</h2>

<img src=”″ alt=”hamster &nbsp;Cage Setup and Maintenance”>
<p> It is important that you know where your hamster cage is located in your home. You can make your cage private by putting it inside a room or by adding a windowsill.</p>
<p>A private hamster cage can be an area of your living space where you can enjoy toys, games, and other fun things. This is valuable to <strong>keep hamsters happy</strong> and entertained.</p>
<p>If you add a window on the south side of the cage, you could let some light into the hamster cage. This is important to watch out for as some hamsters may not <strong>like bright lights</strong>.</p>
<p>Another good location would be a room or area where you can have some <strong>noise without disturbing</strong> the hamster. This could be built with hearing aids or something that filters out noise, so that he does not hear anything but you.</p>
