I'm an adorable little ball of fur looking for a family who will adore me as much as my foster mom does. She thinks we look and act like tiny little bears. We love to explore, climb & tunnel through our bedding & redoing our nests. Beware! We are escape artists.
Syrian Hamsters are larger, slower moving, more laid back and easier to handle than the dwarf hamster breeds. Even so, they can still move very fast.
Adult Syrian hamsters are solitary animals and must be housed on their own. They are nocturnal spending most of the day sleeping and become active at night. Hamsters thrive in a large secure cage with ample space for them to roam. A 40 gallon long aquarium with a mesh top or equivalent is great!
A hamster wheel or hamster ball are great for exercise & entertainment for a Syrian hamster. In the wild, hamsters may run up to 6 miles a day!
*No wire bottom cages or wire wheels please, as they can damage the hamsters feet.
To ease the stress of the transition, we recommend you purchase and completely set up your hamster enclosure with bedding, hideout, food and water before welcoming your new little buddy home.
Ready to meet me? Make an appointment!
I will also be available during our Sunnyvale PETCO Adoption Event on August 13 from 10am-1pm so you can meet me in person! The PETCO is located on 160 El Camino Real Sunnyvale 94087
