    It really upsets me when people talk about hurting hamsters..

    This is why I would never own a snake because I feel it is animal abuse to feed a pet hamster to it. What about the hamster?? it's an animal to. I mean can't snakes eat frozen hamsters? I'm talking when the hamster dies of natural death, then gets froze. Not while living, that is cruel. Snakes...

    It really upsets me when people talk about hurting hamsters..

    I am on this message board called Metal Sludge, and people have mentioned of leaving hamsters on the side of the road, or for target practice, or feeding to snakes. That is animal abuse. I told them that to. It makes me glad I'm a hamster owner. I would never treat my hamsters like that. Some...

    I bought a new betta at Walmart. I have a question

    I bought a new Betta at Walmart, yesterday. I used Prime to condition the water and it also takes ammonia out. I checked with a test strip and there is no ammonia in the water. My Betta is swimming on the bottom of his bowl and he didn't eat his fish pellets, which I had to remove from his bowl...

    The guy at pet store said I have ammonia water, but I check. I do not.

    I called 2 other fish stores, then I called a few other pet stores. I called both, pet and fish stores. They all told me my tank set up is just fine right now, to add a betta fish. The betta will cycle the tank, first off, and it's just fine, it won't hurt the fish. I need a hardy fish to cycle...

    The guy at pet store said I have ammonia water, but I check. I do not.

    How can my fish tank have ammonia, when I use fresh pure water from the store? I also have a filter. I used conditioner. I never placed a fish in this tank. (I'm still waiting to buy my betta fish). I was going to get a fish today but the guy at the pet store said the water had high ammonia in...

    My pet hamster is dying, cries

    My pet hamster is doing fine now, then maybe his big tank has something to do with it, these are not my tanks, but this is the size of my tank for one little dwarf hamster. I think he has enough room to run. Can you say spoiled dwarf hamster? He knows it. I also use blue care fresh bedding...

    Down side of breeding rats for feeders....

    I'm with you there. I could never place a rat, or a hamster into a tank to be ate. How sad. I will never own a snake, as really snakes scare me, no thanks. Why can't this person feed it a dead mouse, instead of killing a living creature? All I can say is.. I am sure glad I am not this persons...

    Thank you. Well hamster seems to be doing better. I have a question. The vet is going to give me antibiotics, how you give that to a hamster? I never done it and my hamster loves to bite me.

    My pet hamster is dying, cries

    Thank you. My hamster is moving now and eating some, which I hope he gets better. The vet is not open on Sat, or Sunday, so I have to wait until Monday. There are no other vets that see hamsters in my area. I checked. One of the vets is allergic to hamsters, then I think, why you a vet for? Most...

My hamster is laying there hardly moving and white stuff is coming out of his mouth. :( Grumpy was breathing heavy last night but now it's not so bad, but...

    How do you tame robo hamsters?

    I found this online how to tame dwarf hamsters. I found this to be good advice. Far too often, dwarf hamsters are accused of being mean, nasty, vicious biters. Sometimes this is true because they are allowed to become wild, but this situation can be avoided. After a short amount of time of no...

    Flea and mite powder for hamsters and bedding.

    I talked with a person at a pet store and he said he had flea and mite powder for hamsters. I am probably going to have to get some if the olive oil does not work because my hamsters are missing fur, which means mites. I also read cedar base bedding is bad, yet I was sold some at the pet store...
