Feeding Your Hamster

Feeding your hamster can be great fun, as hamsters are characterful little animals who will seize upon seeds and rusks quickly and shove them into their cheeks or try to stow them away somewhere around their cage. Catering for a hamster’s nutritional needs is more simple than for some other pets, but there are still several things about your pet’s diet that you need to know.
