Buying a Hamster



Before buying a hamster you need to make sure you have all the nessacery equipment setup ready at home. This will stop the hamster getting stressed as little as possible. Then they can go straight into their new home once you get there. Hamsters can easily be acquired from a breeder, pet shop or even a rescue centre. The best would be a breeder since you'll know that you're getting a quality hamster and will have a wide choice of colours and breeds. If a breeder cannot be found then a hamster from a shop or rescue is just as good.

 

 

What type of Hamster?

 

It's important to choose a hamster that is suitable for you. If you want a hamster that is small, you want more than one and it can live in groups with it's own kind then a Dwarf Hamster is what you're looking for. If you're looking to buy just the one hamster then the best choice is a syrian hamster since this type of hamster is solitary and must be kept on their own. A Syrian hamster is ideal for children or first time hamster owners because they're larger than Dwarfs and much easier to handle.
