No matter which kind of squirrel cages you choose, the size should be at least 360 square inches or 80 x 50 cm. Make sure that the hamsters have enough space. It's also recommend if you can give them a small house to hide for rest or when they are feeling uncomfortable.

How to choose hamster food?

Hamsters also need a balanced diet. Seeds, fruits, and vegetables are all nutritious foods they need. In order to add protein to them, some owners occasionally feed hamsters with mealworms.
