Cages/Equipment

 

Cages

Buying a cage is the biggest expense you'll spend on your hamster. You will need to buy something that will be big enough and suitable for the hamster you will be buying. The starter wire cages that are seen in pets shops are simply too small for most hamsters, especially syrians and should be the absolute minimum for a dwarf hamster. Dwarfs will need something that is escape proof, as these little hamsters can squeeze into very small spaces. If you want to buy a wire cage for a dwarf you will need to make sure that the bar spacing is small enough so it can't escape. Good types of cages for dwarfs are aquariums and tubs.

While these can be fun for your hamster can can keep them happy, these can also be very expensive for the owner and can be hard to take apart and clean.
