Ok, I really need your help. I am buying a hamster tonight. elvis is his name 🙂 ok anyway.

What home made bedding can I make for my hamster? obviously not newspaper or toilet paper. (because that would just use paper and I like saving trees) and wood might not work because, of the splinter issue. what can I use to make it?

What kind of bottle should I use for his water? (brands and price both needed)

Hamster wheel? Is this one good; http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2753362&keepsr=0&clickid=body_rv_txt ? I was thinking about that one but, I wanted to make sure it was a good one.

How much are hamsters at PetSmart that are just regular (not dwarf)?

I am on a budget so I need to know some low priced things that they sell at PetSmart?!

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bedding- I think you should use cotton bedding.
    Wheel- It’s not a good one if your hamster would be sleeping in your room. Try a silent spinner.
    Bottle- IDK
    Hamster Price- 8-12 dollars.

    I wouldn’t exactly make a Homemade Bedding, Go to a Pet store and buy Fluff its Great for hamsters!

    I am not exactly sure how much the Hamsters are. they won’t be that much.

    Try buying a wheel with no Holes where they run because your tiny little legs could fall through them and could easily break there limb or damage it.

    Any Bottle will be good as long as its metal where they suckle from 🙂

    Also try putting a Square Piece of wood in the cage to keep His/Her Teeth healthy.

    Hope i helped.

    1).Well, for the home bedding you can get at PetSmart . You will have to buy a home bedding from there even if it is made from trees, because other things DON’T work really well, and they are not 100% safe for your hamsters so get what they sell. Here’s some good ones: http://www.petsmart.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=2769311&f=Taxonomy%2FPET%2F2769311&f=PAD%2FPet+Type+1%2FHamster&fbc=1&fbn=Pet+Type+1|Hamster&fbx=0

    2). For the hamster water bottle I think this is fine: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2752722
    You should get this because what they sell is safe and great price. So you should get the brand and price information on the website.

    3). Yes, I think that hamster wheel okay but try avoiding the big holes ones because they can trip. Also they could break there legs because they’re legs are really small and sensitive, but don’t worry I think your choice is absolutely perfect and cute. 😀

    4). They don’t that cost that much. They probably range from somewhere $ 4.99- $ 8.99, I think.

    5). Just go on the website and type in the search box: hamsters and it will come up with everything you need for your hamster. It also has great prices. 😀

    Hope this helped and have fun with your hamster! Also if your hamsters are sleeping in you room the wheel my make noise (when i use to have hamsters) . Get a silent one.
