For my dwarf hamster, I use a large fish tank and bought a screen top for it. It's incredibly easy to clean and fun because you can see everything that your little buddy does.

One little project that I would suggest is to build a multiple-story house for your hamster out of clean cardboard: Using a clean, thick cardboard, a boxcutter & non-toxic glue... it's kind of like constructing a gingerbread house where you have to cut each side and attatch them. Make different windows, doors & entrances for them to climb through. Use the non-toxic glue to attach and hold the pieces together with sewing pins. Remove the pins when it dries!

It gives them something to play in, climb & chew on and will replace the lack of levels that you would normally find in a cage. Both you & your ham will absolutely LOVE it.

Another great cage is a 10 gallon aquarium. You can get these for reasonably cheap at garage sales, from classified ads, or check craigslist. I recently saw a cage attachment for the top of an aquarium that is wire and doubles the anount of space your hamster will have. Its on the drfosterandsmith.com website. They may have them in pet stores as well.

I have a hamster and Habitrail is my favorite. They don't seem that big, but they have a quiet wheel are easy to clean and the hamster just loves living in it. The newer cages can be carried easily.

My favorite is Indoor Complete by Nutro. I will send you a picture of my 9 year old cat. She has eaten another brand that we used that is organic, but it is hard to find. Ellen DeGeneras talks about Halo, but I have not found that cat food yet. I have taken my cat with me to Costa Rica and the Bahamas and i have found Nutro in these countries as well.

Hi,

Be sure to check craigslist in your area. There was one available today for a great price. Post what you are looking for in the pet section to see if anyone has what you are looking for. I found out from a nameless employee of Petco that everything the carry in the store is cheaper online. Also do a search online many of the online stores are cheaper and offer free shipping. Good luck!
